- The Ram's models and texture/icon files are still located in the respective models.bar and textures.bar in the original Age of Mythology files, along with its anim file in its respective anim.bar, because of this it is possible to re-add it into the original game via modifications, such as the Expanded Mod.
- The Ram has the same history section as the Marco Polo Sheep in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties.
