  • This episode is inspired by A Nightmare on Elm Street
    • The plot of this episode and the Bakus feeding off their victim's life is similar to Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street both plot wise and how the main villain Freddy Krueger, visits people in their dreams and feeds on their fear
    • Dark, Dire, and Dread Baku's eyes has the same shade of dark red as in Freddy's sweatshirt.
    • The baku's long claws are also a reference to Krueger's famous bladed glove, Dark uses them to menace his victims more than the other Bakus.
    • The Nightmare on Elm Street theme plays during the scenes where Timothy is telling the Baku's back story.
  • Each Baku seems to represent a different type of dream.
    • Dark Baku is the traditional nightmare
    • Dire Baku is the type of dream that shows your inner thoughts/fears
    • Dread Baku is the dream that is the result of "eating something"
    • Fred Baku is your happy dream 
  • When Timothy was fighting Scrappy with a chainsaw, this is a homage to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
