- Colbert Bump: After the gang was prominently featured in Wreck-It Ralph.
- Fan Nickname: Coily is sometimes known as Carrot Ends (alternately spelled Carrot Ens) because the ends of him look like two pink carrots rather than the head and tail of a snake and the noise he makes sounds like "carrot ends, carrot ends..." in the Atari 2600 version.
- Port Overdosed: Like Frogger, Q*Bert's simple design makes it easy to port to any platform. Just check out the picture for The Great Video Game Crash of 1983.
- Working Title: The game was originally going to be called "@!#?@!" (which is what's on the original marquee), but was changed because it's impossible to pronounce.
