According to Capcom's art director Toshiyuki Kamei, Hakan's turquoise, stone-like hair is a kind of pun. In Japanese, Turquoise is "toruko ishi". While "Ishi" can mean "rock" or "stone", "toruko" can also mean Turkey. This is a nod to the fact that Hakan is Turkish.

Near the end of the Chicken Island West stage, there is a hidden cave near an outhouse, specifically on a cliff wall just above the ocean, that can be most easily accessed by hovering down into it with the Chicken Suit. Inside the cave is a shrine with four torches, and in the center a portrait of an "Apedog" (a dog with a chimpanzee's head) with the caption "eatpoo" in lowercase lettering just below it. This is a tribute to a now-defunct online art forum called EATPOO, which one of Avalanche Studios' developers frequented at the time, and of which Apedog was the mascot.
