* The fact that Death is always eating when he is making a deal can be a reference to the [ death drive], from Freudian psychoanalytic theory about the two conflicting central desires which guide humans. While eating, although there is the life drive since the point of feeding is to keep alive, there is also the death drive, because it is necessary to destroy the food before ingesting, an aggressive element.
* In ''[[Supernatural: Carved in Flesh]]'', [[Hel]], the Norse goddess of Death and primary antagonist, calls herself "Death's little sister." Whether this is true or not remains unknown. Though, as creator [[Eric Kripke]] has stated, tie-in novels/comics should not be considered canon.
* [[Julian Richings]] played Death again in the 2011 short film ''[ Dave vs. Death]''. This Death uses the prototypical "robe and scythe" appearance at first, before he switches to a black suit much like the Supernatural version, since he considers it "less theatrical." A man named David Kane, recently deceased, bargains for his life by playing a game of chess against Death, and one of his loved ones will die for every chess piece he loses. The end reveals that Kane tricked Death into killing people who were all plotting against him behind his back. Death is annoyed that David cheated, so he starts the game over again, but doesn't resurrect the people he already claimed in Kane's stead. It can be seen on the short films website []
