- The Rock Hopper's English name is based on the rockhopper penguin (referring to its vague, penguin-like appearance) and the pun involving the "rock" music genre, referring to its guitar.
- Humorously, when it and its variants are hit, their guitar will hit them on the head and interrupt its riff.
- Additionally, their "dancing" animation shows them bouncing on their guitar, like a pogo stick.
