Navi - The fairy that follows you around in Niflheim spouting various useless messages is directly lifted from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

The Snow Troll is probably a reference to the Yeti in the old Windows 3.1 game "Ski Free", who is extremely fast, and devours you in one bite.

Fafnir the Burninator is a reference to Trogdor the Burninator, a dragon from the Homestar Runner comic.

Chapter 12[edit | edit source]

Assatur- The King In Yellow, is a reference to the book "The King In Yellow" by Robert W Chambers published in 1896. It features the titular character as an enigmatic horror, in tattered yellow robes and a golden crown which sits above a palid and disturbing mask, similar to the Great Old Ones found in Lovecraftian works. The King In Yellow is also the name of a play in the book, in which the king himself is a character, and which has a first act so enthralling it's impossible to tear oneself away but with a second act so horrifying in its content it drives the reader to madness.
