  • This event alludes to Dark Link, whom is a boss/mini-boss in the Legend of Zelda series, and Dark Samus, who is the main antagonist of the Metroid Prime series.
    • While Dark Link in the Zelda series is indeed a version of Link rendered pure black, the Dark Samus in this event is only a reference in name, as the real Dark Samus has a unique appearance.
