- Jihad in Arabic literally means "struggle", viz (in Islam) "striving or exerting oneself for God". It can have different shades of meaning, though it is most frequently associated with war
- The icon is very similar to the icon later used to represent the Monastery in Age of Empires II. However, the Monastery icon lacks the blood present on Jihad's icon.
- This technology's function is somewhat a hybrid between the Loom technology in Age of Empires II and the Spanish unique technology Supremacy in Age of Empires II: The Conquerors, as Loom increases villagers' hit points and defense, while Supermacy increase villagers' combat abilities.
