  • This is probably a reference to the phrase "healthy as a horse", except replacing horse with pony and healthy with potent to maintain alliteration.
  • Several of the names of Gaige's skills reference the animated television show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, so the use of "Pony" in this skill's name is consistent with that theme.
