- The Beast Hunter Whip may be a reference to the Hunter Whip seen in Circle of the Moon.
- Simon utilizing Trevor's Combat Cross in favor of the Beast Hunter is a throwback to the upgrade system in the classic games. In the original Castlevania, the Vampire Killer started as a leather whip and could be upgraded to a chain whip.
- Like the Shadow Whip, the Beast Hunter lacks the ability to grapple enemies and utilize rappel points to swing and climb.
- It's the only whip in the Lords of Shadow continuity that is made of leather and/or animal skin.
