- Khepri's Sting was originally called Ikaheka's Hooks, with the description, "Ah, no matter; the wound is not so deep."
- On the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles, the scarab beetle on the forearm acts as if it is alive; the legs wiggle and the jaws open and close.
- Touch of Venom backstabs deal damage over time, similar to Thorn's Mark of the Devourer.
