- Ushimitsu Kozо is very likely based off of Nezumi Kozō, a Japanese thief. After he was executed, he was made into a folk hero who stole from the rich and gave to the poor, like the English legendary bandit Robin Hood. Nezumi Kozō is a nickname meaning "rat boy", just as Ushimitsu Kozō means "witching hour boy".
- Nico Robin claimed that she was Ushimitsu Kozo when confronted by the Orochi Oniwabanshu, but Fukurokuju exposed her lie immediately because the timing was not correct.
- Shimotsuki Yasuie impersonated Ushimitsu Kozo in order to be given a public execution, allowing him to use his platform to deceive Orochi's forces. When he revealed that him being Ushimitsu Kozo was a lie, the guards realized that they caught him stealing from the Flower Capital an hour before Ushimitsu Kozo actually committed thefts.
