Four variations of DJ Lee Fish's song Lookin' Fresh can be heard in the shops in Booyah Base:


  • "Booyah Base" is a play on the word "bouillabaisse," a type of fish stew.
  • "Ammo Knights" is a play on the word "ammonite," which is an extinct type of marine mollusk.
  • "Jelly Fresh" is a play on the word jellyfish.
  • The word "Ebisu" in Shrimp Kicks' Japanese name comes from that of the Japanese god of fishermen and luck, Ebisu.
  • The three gear-selling shopkeepers all wear more than one of their gear type.
  • The four versions of DJ Lee Fish's Lookin' Fresh played in Booyah Base reflect each store and its shopkeeper:
    • Annie's has louder treble, i.e. vocals, and minimal percussion, giving it a weaker sound in that respect. This is a reflection of her shy, detached personality, as well as the fact that she sells gear for the top part of the buyer's body, hence the emphasis on the treble.
    • Jelonzo's music is faded out except for the melody, the "center", because his gear goes on the middle part of the body. It also has many bubbly sound effects in the background, showing his bubbly and ecstatic personality as well as referencing his gelatinous species.
    • Crusty Sean's has the bass turned all the way up and emphasizes percussion, because his gear corresponds to the lower part of the body. Furthermore, the heavy beat gives it a bouncy sound, reflecting his outgoing personality.
    • Sheldon's music is more distant, showing his separation from the others as a weapons dealer. It also has static and other sounds reminiscent of a military radio, as a reference to his obsession with the military.
  • According to a developers' interview, Booyah Base was built on the land upon which Sheldon's home (and weapons shop) stood. However, it was not Sheldon but his grandfather, Ammoses Shellendorf, who owned the land.[6]
  • According to Sunken Scroll 18, there is a "Ultra-Mega-Hyper Sale" at Booyah Base, but when it is on is not mentioned.
