    • Charr training devourers can be found in several places across Ascalon.
    • Cows do not fly, but Mad Mardine and his infamous Cattlepult found in Diessa Plateau has sent many cows flying, resulting in each cow's death.
    • There is a Hero Challenge in Blazeridge Steppes near Lunk Kraal that is started by lighting a fire, which attracts a marmox that quickly puts the fire out.

  • Rikker's quote about Marmox stamping out fires is a reference to Andrew Steyn's statement about rhinoceros stamping out fires in the movie The Gods Must Be Crazy.
  • Rikker is nearly the size of a Human, and even taller were he to stand like one, making Rikker the tallest skritt yet!
