  • He was named after writer, Wendy Molyneux's, real-life dentist, Dr. Janice Yap, DDS.[Note 1]
  • He owns a blue guitar (a Yamaha Pacifica) that he keeps and sometimes plays in his office dubbed "Greta." He also has a talkbox accessory to go with it. His nickname at the Beta Pi Upsilon frat house, Slow Hand, is likely derived from that of Eric Clapton's, also a guitar player.

  • He likely listens to Peter Frampton, as he imitated his voice twice in "Dr. Yap."
  • He thinks Bob has the perfect body. ("My Big Fat Greek Bob")
  • His appearance resembles that of Shigeru Miyamoto.
