In "Painting the Town...", Sun Wukong and Neptune Vasilias are seen at the noodle bar, with the latter wondering if the members of Team RWBY are okay. The former simply assumes they are, and the duo go back to eating.
- The name is a reference to A Simple Walk into Mordor, another Rooster Teeth production, which also starred RWBY co-director, co-writer, and the voice actor of Neptune: Kerry Shawcross.
- The bar banner depicts two straw-hatted characters that resemble Kerry and co-star Chris Demarais. In the background of the image, a tower similar to Barad-dûr can be seen, further tying in with the reference.
