The band's members were big fans of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure[2], with Shinnosuke in particular citing Hirohiko Araki as an artistic influence. Their love of the series shows up in their music videos and lyrics, with the song "Magenta Magenta" even referencing Aja. For the band's 12th single "Catwalk", Araki drew the cover artwork, portraying the three band members as women with heads resembling Killer Queen's.

Two of SOUL'd OUT's song titles were referenced for characters in Steel Ball Run: "Magenta Magenta" was used as inspiration for the name of Magent Magent and "Wekapipo" (ウェカピポ) inspired the name of Wekapipo.[3]
