- Given the name and item description, this is probably a reference to God of War (2018).
- The reference is that the main character Kratos keeps calling his son Atreus “Boy”, which has turned into a meme.
- The axe's design and function is also reminiscent of Kratos’ Leviathan Axe in the God of War game, except it actually freezes enemies instead of simply rooting them in place.
- Base DPS increased from 110 to 183.
- Base breach DPS increased from 31 (63) to 328 (656).
