A recurring theme in Jing: King of Bandits is references to alcoholic beverages. Chapters are referred to as "shots". Each storyline arc features at least one person who is named after an alcoholic beverage. In addition, each town or city is named after a cocktail, and Jing and Kir's "Kir Royale" attack is also a cocktail, observed by his catch phrase "Gimme a Kir Royale" uttered almost every time before he uses it.
