Hivory Towers is the only world (despite it being a Hub world) to not contain alliteration in its name.
Capital B will occasionally mention that a reptile with big fangs and obsession for crystals once ventured into Hivory Towers, although Capital B notes he didn't last for long. The reptile in question is an obvious reference to Argonaut Games' Croc, who first made his first appearance into the gaming world with Croc: Legend of the Gobbos for the Sony PlayStation, Sega Saturn and PC; Croc: Legend of the Gobbos was an early 3D platformer featuring some collecthon elements. Capital B's comment that reptile didn't last very long also seems to be reference to the fact that the Croc franchise died quickly.
