ReferencesThe game has an Arachnos soldier NPC with the name "Jenkins". He usually keeps getting himself captured and you have to rescue him. As confirmed by the game's developer, this is a nod to the Leeroy Jenkins phenomenon from World of Warcraft. You can find out more about it in the related links of the World of Warcraft game entry.
