  • The Dead Man's Sweater is a reference to the "redshirt" stock character in fiction, who dies soon after being introduced and is typically used to dramatize the potential peril the surviving characters will face. The term originates from the security staff on the sci-fi show Star Trek: The Original Series, who wear red uniforms and frequently die during episodes.
  • Redigit and Cenx play in a band of the same name.[1] This is also referenced in the tooltip of the Ivy.
