  • "Thanatophobia" literally means "Fear of Death".
    • It is a compound word consisting of Θάνατος ("Thanatos") the Greek name of Death and -φοβία ("-phobia") the Greek suffix used to form nouns describing a fear of a specific thing.
  • In the Game files, Thanatophobia is often misspelt as "Thatanophobia".
