- In the original Japanese dub, the name system of the avatars is comprised of names from either various gods, creatures or heroes from multiple mythologies, legends in religion, mystical objects, astronomy, portmanteau of specific words, and titles from medieval era.
- In the English dub, however, certain names are often altered due to censorship.
