In the original Japanese version, Gerogero's organs were colored red. The change to blue was probably made due to censoring, as the red color makes the organs protruding from the creature look far more real. This version of Gerogero can also be seen in both the BradyGames and Piggyback Interactive official strategy guides for Final Fantasy VIII.
Gerogero's Japanese name is "Namtar Utok". Namtar was a god of death in Mesopotamian mythology, while Utukku is a type of spirit or a demon in Sumerian mythology that could be either benevolent or evil.
Gerogero's English name may come from the Japanese word gero, which means "vomit".
