- His name and appearance is a reference to Link, the main protagonist of The Legend of Zelda video game series. The quest sequence that Linken once gave was a reference to the series' first game, The Legend of Zelda.
- After the player completed , when Linken was spoken to, he said "I met a man that said 'Master using it and you can have this'". This was a reference to the Old Man that appeared at the beginning of the first The Legend of Zelda game.
- One of his lines during , Oh, boy! I'm so hungry, I could eat a fire elemental! is a reference to the infamous Legend Of Zelda CD-i games. It comes from the original phrase, "Oh, boy! I'm so hungry, I could eat an octorok!"
