In Combat trhteret
- All members of Team PINC allude to a fruit through their surname, with the exception of Pit whose given and surname combine to make the reference:
- Pit's entire name was derived from pitahaya, which is another name for the dragon fruit
- Inigo's surname comes from the Rainier cherry
- Natsuki's surname comes from the Sudachi, a Japanese citrus fruit
- Capri's surname comes from Concord grapes
- The team's fruit theme came about because of Pit. There were no names that I liked that both started with P and alluded to the colour pink, leading to her name being taken from pitahaya. That, in turn, spurred on the theme so as to make her name seem more like it belonged.
- The team's name came about because of Capri, who had been created long before Team PINC or its other members. I wanted to put Capri in the team, and as such, the team would have to include a "C" in the name.
