    • NOTES (3)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Dave: I am a Yankee Doodle Barbarian
        Dave talked to Candy about the Mechanical Castle that Rotates, with colored lights and plays the song I am a Yankee Doodle Barbarian, was to the tune of I am a Yankee Doodle Boy. But something was missing from the Mechanical Castle, the colored lights and music was missing, only the Udrogoth Castle rotates.

      • Candy and some other girl: Something about a backstreet ministrel.
        Anyways, a Backstreet Ministrel is a spoof of a Backstreet Boy.

      • Mecha-Dave: His speach pattern, movements, ect.
        The common plot twist of a person actually being a robot is a throw back to many cartoons, books, ect. It is also a common theme found in Japanese Animation (anime). And, it is also common for the "evil" robot to turn good in certain situations (most likely when the hero is about to be destroyed).
