  • The rocket launcher is named after yari, a traditional Japanese spear.
  • Lo Wang's quote when taking the weapon for the first time is a reference to the movie Army of Darkness, where the main hero says the same exact line.
    • It could also be a reference to Duke Nukem series, where the same line became a tagline for the main hero.
  • Another Duke Nukem reference can be found in the rockets' name, which are named Nuke Dukem.
  • The rocket launcher could be inspired by the triple-barrelled Rocket Launcher from the Unreal Tournament series.
