- Carbuncle is also the name of a server.
- Many arguments over what type of animal Carbuncle is have led to a Japanese flying blue squirrel known as a Momonga.
Carbuncle, originally was spelled "carbunkel", a magical creature reported in the Americas by early Spanish. They are described as small creatures, with a certain gem on their foreheads. The gems come from the brains of dragons. According to myth, dragons have inside their brain a liquid that crystallizes into a solid gem when they die. According to superstition, it is good luck to catch a carbuncle.
- It is safe to assume that the name Carbuncle comes from the latin Carbuncŭlus, which means ruby.
- In the tropical America, there is an insect called Carbúnculo, most popularly known as Carbunclo or Cocuyo (dusk star). It is a coleopteran insect; its body is about three centimeters long, oblong shaped, brown and with two yellowish spots to the sides of the thorax, from which it emanates a very bright azure light.
"Vana'diel is the world in which you live. You should see the true Vana'diel with your own eyes."
"I will extend a bridge...between the people of the present, and beings of ages past."
