  • This arc mostly parodies the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series. Also Tomokazu Sugita, the voice of Gintoki, voices Joseph Joestar in the first season of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
  • When Shinpachi, Kagura, Tae, and later on Gintoki, get possessed by the ghosts, they turn into the Japanese heavy metal singer Demon Kakka ("His Excellency Demon").
  • The way the spirits join up to Tagosaku in the end seems similar to how the Great Spirit from Shaman King is made. The Great Spirit is compossed of a shapeless mass of trillions of spirits interconnected.
