- The task "Who Wants to Watch the Watchtower" could be a reference to the phrase "quis custodiet ipsos custodes?" ("who watches the watchmen?").
- The task "Are You Being Served?" is a reference to the British comedy show sharing the same title.
- On the day of the release, clicking on the spoiler box on the RuneScape website for the rewards gave the message: "Argh! Someone's pinched the rewards!"
- The Task "Dukes of Khazard" could be a reference to the television show called the Dukes of Hazard.
- One of the tasks is called "A visit to Charlie" where the player has to visit a Unicorn in the zoo. This may be a reference to the famous video series called "Charlie the Unicorn".
- The Task "The Coal Train" could be a reference to the character Cole (AKA "The Cole Train") from Gears of War.
- The Task 'Living on a Prayer' Could be a reference to the song 'Living on a Prayer' sung by Bon Jovi, furthermore this would coincide with how it is a music emitting emote and it is a song.
- Before the introduction of the Salt in the Wound quest, on the 5 July 2011, the requirement for selling rubium to Ezekial Lovecraft was to have finished Kennith's Concerns, for Ezekial would be present at his fishing shop after completion of this quest. After Salt in the Wound was released, Ezekial would not be seen in his fishing shop after the finished Kennith's Concerns, forcing players wanting to complete this task having to wait till the bug was fixed or complete Salt in the Wound for Ezekial to appear back at his fishing shop. This has been fixed.
- The hard task "Get Your Stinking Hands Off Me" is likely a reference to the line to the film, "Planet of the Apes", in which the lead character,Taylor, famously says "Get your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape" when captured.
