Okay so prompted by seeing some in the Tinkerer today, lets see about these:
Pilgrim Father Skin, and there is also Pilgrim Mother Skin, referencing the English pilgrim settlers of the 17th century:
The Pilgrims or Pilgrim Fathers were the English settlers who established the Plymouth Colony in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Their leadership came from the religious congregations of Brownists, or Separatist Puritans, who had fled religious persecution in England for the tolerance of 17th-century Holland in the Netherlands. They held Puritan Calvinist religious beliefs but, unlike most other Puritans, they maintained that their congregations should separate from the English state church. They even...
Staying on a US-historical theme, there are the
Thanksgiving petfood items:
Referencing items from a
traditional Thanksgiving Feast:
The centerpiece of contemporary Thanksgiving in the United States and in Canada is a large meal, generally centered on a large roasted turkey. It is served with a variety of side dishes which vary from traditional dishes such as mashed potatoes, stuffing, and cranberry sauce, to ones that reflect regional or cultural heritage. The majority of the dishes in the traditional American version of Thanksgiving dinner are made from foods native to the New World, as according to tradition the Pilg Acc...
And also for Thanksgiving, the
turkey enemies: the Gobble God (previously named Turkey God), and minions (Gobble/Turkey Overseer, Gobble/Turkey Defender, Gobble/Turkey Blaster):
Wandering Turkey enemy too:
And then from the
US Revolutionary War there is the pair of skins:
(believe you’ve got the quote references already listed from both, but not the historical reference)
Redcoat Assassin Skin:
The British soldiers were nicknamed “Redcoat” due to wearing a red uniform:
In the United States, "Redcoat" is associated in cultural memory with the British soldiers who fought against the Patriots during the American Revolutionary War: the Library of Congress possesses several examples of the uniforms the British Army used during this time. Most soldiers that fought the Patriots wore the red coat though the Hessian mercenaries and some locally recruited Loyalist units had blue or green clothing.
Accounts of the time usually refer to British soldiers as "Regulars" or "...
and Patriot Paladin for the American Revolutionary forces:
Patriots (also known as Revolutionaries, Continentals, Rebels, or American Whigs) were those colonists of the Thirteen Colonies who rejected British rule during the American Revolution and declared the United States of America as an independent nation in July 1776. Their decision was based on the political philosophy of republicanism as expressed by spokesmen such as Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Thomas Paine. They were opposed by the Loyalists who supported continued British rule.
Irish Dancer Trickster Skin referencing the traditional cultural dancing of Ireland:
(the quote is Irish language, meaning One, two, three, four)
Irish dance is a group of traditional dance forms originating from Ireland, encompassing dancing both solo and in groups, and dancing for social, competitive, and performance purposes. Irish dance in its current form developed from various influences such as Native Irish dance French quadrilles and English country dancing. Dance was taught by "travelling dance masters" across Ireland in the 17th-18th century, and separate dance forms developed according to regional practice and differing purp...
And another dancing one, the
Morris Dancer Priest:
(you’ve got the quote reference already, but also there is the cultural reference)
Morris Dancing is an English folk dance:
Morris dance is a form of English folk dance usually accompanied by music. It is based on rhythmic stepping and the execution of choreographed figures by a group of dancers, usually wearing bell pads on their shins. Implements such as sticks, swords and handkerchiefs may also be wielded by the dancers. In a small number of dances for one or two people, steps are near and across a pair of clay tobacco pipes laid one across the other on the floor. They clap their sticks, swords, or handkerchiefs ...
Rainbow Rocketeer Pet Skin
Along with being another item to list under the
leprechaun reference, the description relates to the Nyan Cat.
Nyan Cat is the name of a YouTube video uploaded in April 2011, which became an internet meme. The video merged a Japanese pop song with an animated cartoon cat with a Pop-Tart for a torso, flying through space, and leaving a rainbow trail behind it. The video ranked at number 5 on the list of most viewed YouTube videos in 2011.
On April 2, 2011, the GIF animation of the cat was posted by 25-year-old Christopher Torres of Dallas, Texas, who uses the name "prguitarman", on his website LOL-Comi...
There are several other
leprechaun references to add, not least the Leprechaun enemies ( Leprechaun, Leprechaun Statue, Dungeon Leprechaun, Alien Leprechaun, Yellow Leprechaun), and the associated Rainbow Road/ Pot of Gold for the myth of the leprechaun’s crock/pot o’gold hidden at the end of the rainbow:
A leprechaun (Irish: leipreachán/luchorpán) is a type of fairy of the Aos Sí in Irish folklore. They are usually depicted as little bearded men, wearing a coat and hat, who partake in mischief. They are solitary creatures who spend their time making and mending shoes and have a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If captured by a human, they often grant three wishes in exchange for their freedom.[not verified in body] Like other Irish fairies, leprechauns may be derived from the Tu...
And there are the two player skins,
Leprechaun Mystic, and Miss Shamrock:
Miss Shamrock also referencing the
shamrock as a traditional symbol of Ireland:
A shamrock is a young sprig, used as a symbol of Ireland. Saint Patrick, Ireland's patron saint, is said to have used it as a metaphor for the Christian Holy Trinity. The name shamrock comes from Irish seamróg [ˈʃamˠɾˠoːɡ], which is the diminutive of the Irish word seamair óg and simply means "young clover".
Shamrock usually refers to either the species Trifolium dubium (lesser clover, Irish: seamair bhuí) or Trifolium repens (white clover, Irish: seamair bhán). However, other three-leaved pl...
There’s a bunch of other leprechaun-related things too, pet skins:
Mini Pot Of Gold, and Leprechaun’s Walking Hat:
The Walking Hat also has a bonus reference in the description, to the
Sorting Hat from Harry Potter:
The Sorting Hat is a sapient artefact used at Hogwarts, which uses Legilimency (essentially, the ability to read minds) to determine which of the four school houses – Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin – each new student is to be assigned for their years at Hogwarts. The hat resembles a dilapidated conical leather wide-brimmed wizard's hat, with folds and tears that make it appear to have eyes and a mouth. During the opening banquet at the beginning of each school year, the Hat is pla...
…and reusable consumable
Paddy’s Flying Hat which is a leprechaun’s hat/St Patrick’s Day reference.
Saint Patrick's Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig, lit. 'the Day of the Festival of Patrick'), is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. 385 – c. 461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland.
Saint Patrick's Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland), the Eastern Orthodox Church, ...
St Patrick’s reference is also there in the other reusable consumable Rainbow Clover:
As it is in the
St Patrick’s Day Weapons:
Clover Bow item and description would merit a mention under the lucky clover reference:
The four-leaf clover is a rare variation of the common three-leaf clover. According to traditional superstition, such clovers bring good luck, though it is not clear when or how this superstition began. The earliest mention of "Fower-leafed or purple grasse" is from 1640 and simply says that it was kept in gardens because it was "good for the purples in children or others". A description from 1869 says that four-leaf clovers were "gathered at night-time during the full moon by sorceresses, It ...
Staff of the Saint has a triple whammy of referring to clover and leprechaun, and the Saint in its name referencing St Patrick.
Rainbow Rod has its appearance at the wand tip being clover-like; Katana of Good Fortune has the clover references via the hilt resembling one, and the item name.
Sunrise Hunter Skin refers to the mythological Chinese archer Hou Yi and the tale of him shooting down the suns.
Hou Yi (Chinese: 后羿; pinyin: Hòu Yì; Wade–Giles: Hou I) is a mythological Chinese archer. He was also known as Shen Yi and simply as Yi (羿). He is also typically given the title of 'Lord Archer'.

Mini Djinn Pet Skin:
Leading on to the
Ent (and Ent Ancient, Ent Sapling, Ent God, Lucky Ent God), referencing the Ents of Tolkien’s Middle-earth.
Ents are a race of beings in J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy world Middle-earth who closely resemble trees. They are similar to the talking trees in folklore around the world. Their name is derived from the Anglo-Saxon word for giant.
The Ents appear in The Lord of the Rings as ancient shepherds of the forest and allies of the free peoples of Middle-earth during the War of the Ring. The Ent who figures most prominently in the book is Treebeard, who (credibly) claims to be the oldest creature in Middl...
