Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name Cassowar could be based on the Cassowary, a large flightless bird native to the tropical forests of New Guinea (Papua New Guinea and Indonesia), nearby islands, and northeastern Australia. Cassowary is considered as one of the most dangerous birds in the world as it can be quite aggressive if provoked and can inflict serious or even fatal wounds to humans.
    • The Cassowar's high attack speed ties in to the Cassowary's high running speed.
    • The Cassowar's blades slightly resemble the shape of the Cassowary's head.
