Trivia

  • His Japanese name, Kusari-Gama, is a portmanteau. Kusarigama (鎖鎌) is the name of his chain-scythe weapon, while gama (ガマ) means "cattail" in Japanese, referring to the plants of the same name which grow near wetlands where frogs are commonly found.
  • In the 2017 One Punch Man Halloween cover, Chain'n'toad was depicted as himself but with a scythe instead of a sickle and with a toad-shaped hooded cape instead of a toad mask. Both changes were done in reference to the classic rendition of the Grim Reaper, usually described as a humanoid figure with a dark hooded cape and a scythe.
