The effects that happen to the victims in Shakedown Road strangely resemble those of the scams used by Tamami Kobayashi in that the victim is presumably set up as the perpetrator of some wrongdoing and forced to hand over his/her money as a result. It seems that the leaves on the ground of a Ginkgo biloba are the cause of such exploits. When a person steps on or an object is placed on the leaves, a group of countless ladybug-like Stands move them around instantaneously, usually causing the person to accidentally break something.
- The Gingko tree bears a resemblance to the tree that Giorno Giovanna created in one of his attempts to avoid Koichi Hirose.
- The Shakedown Road is the second location to have a Stand, Les Feuilles. The first one being Sugar Mountain's Spring
- Shakedown Road seems to take its name from The Grateful Dead album Shakedown Street.
