- Its name sounds like minnow.
- The large amount of eyes and the general shape of the Minno could be an allusion to bacteria, who sometimes have long, eyelike structures in their bodies.
Minno make a "Mooo!" sound when they're aware of carnivores (and they're prey sized). It makes a "eepeep" sound when hurt and runs away making a "woahawoahaha" noise.
