Trivia

  • The Japanese name for Nugget, きんのたま kin no tama, literally means "golden ball", which is also a colloquial term for testicles. The man offering his "golden ball" is a frequent joke among Japanese fans. As this pun would be lost in translation, as well as the fact that it would not go over well with parent groups, it was translated as "nugget of wisdom".
