Fairy Orbitars are Orbitars (a weapon consisting in floating orbs) shaped like faries, and their Idol description reads "Tired of pixies asking you to listen?" This is a reference to Navi, the fairy from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, that would often say "listen?" during gameplay and is considered annoying by many players.

The game also features some other similarities and possible references to Zelda, but they might just be coincidences due to the similar themes of both games.

Stage 9 of the Remix II challenges is based on Kid Icarus, with the player controlling Pit, but it's set in a room made of bricks from Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link, and the objective is to collect all fairies, also from that game, while being attacked by Moas, still from Zelda 2.
