  • In Dragon Quest II, the Princess of Moonbrooke is the first spellcaster in the series who can learn Kaboom.
  • The spell's English name is a reference to the 1958 Warner Bros. animated short "Hare-Way to the Stars", starring the characters Marvin the Martian and Bugs Bunny. In the cartoon, Marvin's attempt to destroy Earth using dynamite for obstructing his view of Venus, but is thwarted by Bugs, prompting him to ask, "Where's the kaboom? There was supposed to be an Earth-shattering kaboom!"
