Uncle Grandpa doesn't want to face the fact that the sword can't be removed and cries because he can't eat his sandwich, Mr. Gus had enough and pulls the sword himself the guys bask in his glory as Mr. Gus wonders what did he do.

  • This episode is based off the story of King Arthur as said by Mr. Gus.
  • The episode uses the music from the Grandpa at Arms short.
  • The giant eagle from Charlie Burgers drops the RV off at the mall.
  • There's a head in a jar in the Pickles Ahoy! stand which could reference the head jars from Fox's and Comedy Central's "Futurama".
  • As stated by Urban Dictionary, a chund can refer to vomit which can explain why the business went out of business.
  • One of the food court restaurant's names was "Feed Me, Seymour!" and had a picture of a Venus flytrap next to it. This is a reference to the movie "Little Shop of Horrors"
  • Pizza Steve quoted the Bible verse of Book Matthew 27: Verse 46, he said "Why have you forsaken me?". This is said by Jesus when he called out to God.
    • This would make sense in the episode as Knightly Kingdoms did follow the word of God and used the same type of Medieval English that can be read in the Bible.
      • Another Bible reference is said by Mr. Gus, "Banish them all, Banish the Unholy", which talks about how the Bible stated to "banish all unholy from the text".
  • Mr. Gus' sandwich throne resembles the Iron Throne from "Game of Thrones".
    • Uncle Grandpa tells Pizza Steve that he's his "true king". This is referencing how fans of "Game of Thrones" fans declare Stannis Baratheon as "The one true king" of Westeros.
  • Pizza Steve hurting his ankle can reference the episode of Fox's Family Guy "Peter's Silver Scroll", when Peter Griffin had fallen on the ground and hurts his knee as he whines "Ah!" over and over.
  • Running Gags:
    • Uncle Grandpa taking things from other people.
    • Mr. Gus banishing people.
    • Uncle Grandpa using his axe to banish and slice things and people.
    • Someone answering "What ever you say man" to the king when he asks "This is what a good king would do... Right?"
  • Errors:
    • In Hundred Dollar Gus, the arcade was known as "Flores Funtime Arcade", and this episode it's known as "Flores' Fun Dungeon Arcade"
      • Although this can be a separate arcade made by the same business.
