- In Twilight of the Golden Witch, Lambdadelta jokingly suggests that her choosing to help the residents of the Golden Land would result in her likely making it to "the top 3 in the next character ranking contest". This was borne out in truth with her performance in this poll.
- The "Welfare Officer" in 41st place is the welfare officer who confronted Rosa in Alliance of the Golden Witch.
- Madoka Yonezawa is a popular singer and voice actor. She voiced Leviathan in Umineko.
- The "Time Thief Witches" and "Torture Witch" in 67th and 71st places seem to refer to specific Japanese fan works of Umineko.
- "U.N. Owen of 495 Years" in 71st place is a reference to Flandre Scarlet of the Touhou Project series. A similar reference is made in Chapter 3 of Clair's story in Requiem of the Golden Witch.
- "Wanyan" in 71st place refers to a creature referenced in the Tea Party of Twilight of the Golden Witch. The word is made up of the Japanese onomatopoeia for cats and dogs, and is translated as "meowoof".
