To the few people who have read Journey to the West, familiar characters and story line will begin to appear. Ether Saga Online is based off of this famed Chinese classic. Players who know the story will begin to recognize people such as Sun Wukong, the monkey King, and demons, like the Champion of the Blackwind. However there are several other references outside the game itself, such as the man with diabetes.

Worried Performers Edit

In the quest Worried Performers which is received around level 40ish players will be asked to find out the worries of the goddess's daughters. When players ask them what their worries are they respond with an obvious break in the fourth wall.

"My worry? (Looks at script) 'I want to find someone who lives in the Quicksand River and likes to eat people' ?!! Who wrote this script?"
