- The Zyclops almost share some similarities to the Zurg Bots from Toy Story 2 and the Hornets from Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, particularly they share the same color scheme, yellow and black. They also fire lasers from their hands.
- The name Zyclops is parody on the word Cyclops, a one-eyed giant from Greek mythology. Also like the cyclops, Zyclops have one red glowing eye.
- Their cyclop-like style is similar to the various mecha of the Principality of Zeon such as Zaku in the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise.
