Dollarweed Drummer is based on the manyflower marshpennywort (Hydrocotyle umbellata), also known as the dollarweed, a semi-aquatic perennial weed in the genus Hydrocotyle that thrives in wet, sandy habitat.

His ability as a drummer is based on how the leaves of the dollarweed resemble drum cymbals.
