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.
