Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The tool tip of this item, "You are the Artifact Keeper of Asra Nox" may be a reference to a boss the player must fight twice in Starbound, named; "Asra Nox." The weapon also behaves similarly to the Solus Katana's alternate attack, a weapon rarely dropped by Asra Nox after your first encounter with her. The name of the weapon in Spirit is also similar to that of Asra Nox's Katana.
