- The following prefixes can be selected:
- The Dreamer, and its prerequisite The Lover, may be a reference to lyrics "The lovers, the dreamers, and me" from The Rainbow Connection.
- The motif of the unicorn and rainbow might be a reference to the flash game Robot Unicorn Attack, which featured a (robot) unicorn able to dash with a rainbow aura. The game over screen also tells the player "your dreams did not come true" and prompts the player to "chase your dreams again" by pressing a button, which might have influenced the name of the short bow.
- The ArenaNet logo on the flank of the unicorn is a reference to the My Little Pony franchise, in which characters have a symbol (cutie mark), which represents a special talent or prominent personality trait, displayed on their flanks.
