- The welcome sign on Main Street has the Latin phrase semper superne nitens, meaning “always strive upwards.”
- The villain, Mordred, is also called Binary Bard – the name of a Poptropica Creator alias. Binary Bard reappears in Super Villain Island.
- Binary Bard was originally designed as a good character – his mechanical eye was green instead of red, he was smiling (not in an evil way), and he had an instrument in his hand, just like an actual bard.
- AstroZone (on Pewter Moon) is a parody of AutoZone.
- Astro-Knights Island is featured in Poptropica Adventures for the Nintendo DS, along with Super Power and Mythology.
- Because it’s considered one of the hardest islands in Poptropica, there is a free in-game guide you can pick up from a kiosk on Main Street to help you. It was released on August 10, 2011. You can also check out our Astro-Knights Island Guide.
