Trivia and Speculation
- Roberta's name may have been inspired by Roberta Knie, an American soprano well-known for her role as Brunnhilde from Wagner's Ring des Nibelungen.
- The name Gotz may have been derived from Götz von Berlichingen, a German Imperial Knight and mercenary. Goethe wrote a play based on his life.
- In german there is the word "Götze" which means as much as "fake god"
- This may be the witch form of Tomoe Mami as the cage may symbolize her original inability to escape the fate of becoming a Puella Magi. However, this is mere speculation since Mami dies from being eaten rather than from an exhausted soul gem.
