  • Venus Mantrap's name is a pun on ハエトリグサ, which reads as "haetorigusa" which means "flycatcher" or "Venus flytrap". Venus Mantrap's name is ヒトトリグサ, which reads as "hitotorigusa", ハエ (which means fly) was replaced with ヒト (which means person, human, etc.).
  • It is Rafflesidon's "junior" in the same sense as Junior Centipede is to Senior Centipede.
