Eiji Aonuma has stated that Anju and Kafei's characters were inspired by the 1998 North Korean Taepodong missile crisis. During the game, Spoiler:Link must help Kafei retrieve a wedding mask so that he can marry Anju mere minutes before the moon is set to annihilate Clock Town.

'We were attending a wedding of a staff member and were talking with Koizumi and the others: "Come to think of it, it’s somewhat strange to come to a wedding in a situation when missiles may fall down today."'
