- Some names of its attacks (Rivoluzione, Strano, Vento) are in Italian.
- Daedala may be derived from daidala, finely crafted figurines attributed to the mythological craftsman Daedalus.
- Daedala may be also derived from Daedala, a festival in ancient Greece that celebrated the goddess Hera, or Daedala a ancient Carian city and a Lycian mountain region.
- In Project X Zone 2, a challenge quest pits the characters against ????????, which is a very large rusted Mechon located on the Fallen Arm. This is likely a reference to Ancient Daedala.
