- Barbaross appears to be based on both Lorenz and Hannibal, the latter in terms of design and title, and the former in terms of situation.
- His design and title could also be based on the real-life figure Frederick I. "Barbarossa", emperor of Germany from 1122 to 1190. He received his nickname which is inspired by his great red beard, by Italians whom he fought and defeated.
