- The company could be based on the Japanese manufacturer Kawasaki. Despite the real-life company's line of business being manufacturing heavy machinery such as military and civilian vehicles, they both have similar names and logos.
- Inside various interiors, you may see a Kakagawa Power Ultra 3000 Pro. The screen of the photocopier has an Easter egg as the screen reads: ERROR Unleash ninja guru lol.
- The Cashstar's logo is made using the Pricedown font (which is used in Grand Theft Auto's main logo). Plus, the name is a nod to Grand Theft Auto's developers and publishers, Rockstar Games.
- The Power Ultra 3000 Pro printer makes an appearance as an easter egg in another Rockstar production, Max Payne 3.
- Ray Bulgarin owns a Music Ultra-Pro in his house.
There are a few different possible origins for the company's name:
- The name may have been derived from the Japanese city of Kakegawa, where there is a factory that makes glass for televisions. It may also be a play on words for the Kanagawa Prefecture, a large prefecture just north of Tokyo in the Kanto Region of Japan.
- As "kaka" may have been derived from "cack", i.e. "shit", and as "gawa" means "river" in Japanese, the name may be a play on the phrase "shit creek". "shit creek" is derived from the Scottish term "up shit creek without a paddle", which means to be in a difficult situation without an easy solution.
- In the Filipino language "kakagawa" translates to "just made" in English.
