  • As with other Dragon Quest IX names, the name "Quarantomb" is a play on the words "quarantine" and "tomb".
  • The setting of Quarantomb seems to be a play on the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor, in which there is the Terracotta Army, that seems to be the origin of Earthenwarriors.
    • The heavy use of mercury in the Mausoleum may be the cause why Metal Slimes are set to be found in this dungeon.
