  • Descended Creator: Justin Roiland voiced Korvo in the first three seasons.
  • Flip-Flop of God: On the matter of the nature of Korvo and Terry's relationship, creator Mike McMahan said in an interview with Kayla Cobb from The Decider magazine that Korvo and Terry's relationship is described as "somewhere between married and super best friends" and that this baseline is funny to have them in. However, McMahan later said in an interview with Jake Kleinman, a senior editor from the online magazine Inverse, that Korvo and Terry became a romantic couple over the course of the first two seasons, and the third season treats them as husbands as well as business partners.

  • The Other Darrin: As was done by [adult swim] for Rick and Morty, Hulu and 20th Television Animation announced that Justin Roiland would be replaced for his role as Korvo for Season 4 and onward in light of his transgressions. Dan Stevens took over as the current voice of Korvo. Chris the Red Goobler was also recast with Eric Bauza.

  • Word of Gay: An article on the online magazine Inverse had an editor ask Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan on a zoom chat if Korvo and Terry are a couple.

This is unsurprising given that the show itself explicitly revealed that both Korvo and Terry are bisexual.
