- It is one of two named mudcrabs in the game, the other being Pincer, a pet in Hearthfire. However, unlike Pincer, Old Salty is hostile, like common mudcrabs.
- It is quite possible that Old Salty is a reference to the Merchant Mudcrab from The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind due to the fact it has a tankard, and gold, and in Morrowind, the Merchant Mudcrab sold alcoholic beverages.
- Old Salty may no longer appear at Northshore Landing once the Thalmor and Ancarion appear there during "A New Source of Stalhrim," especially if convinced to become merchants for Stalhrim weapons and armor during the quest.
