    • Elena Lincoln: Mrs. Robinson (a reference to the 1967 movie The Graduate); Bitch Troll
    • Kate Kavanagh: Carla Bernstein (a reference to Carl Bernstein, one of the investigative journalists who reported on Watergate)
    • Leila Williams: Ghost Girl
    • Greta (Grace and Carrick's server): Little Miss European Pigtails
