  • Cid is the only hero who doesn't get 4× damage upgrades (possibly because this would make click builds too overpowered). Therefore, she is completely useless to level up past 25 (at which point you would be able to buy the Clickstorm skill).
  • Cid doesn't benefit from Fragsworth Fragsworth, despite the fact that this Ancient increases Click Damage.
  • Some players have a bug with Cid gilds. She gets gilded with every new gild instead of a random hero who gives DPS, and it may be annoying in early game. (Bug save related, and representative with Steam/browser versions)
  • From patch 0.14 on, Cid's damage is affected by HeroSoul Hero Souls and Cid's cost is affected by Dogcog Dogcog.


  • Cid is a possible reference to the recurring character Cid from the Final Fantasy game series, who appears in almost every game and assists the team in their quest.
  • During the Steam release of the game, Cid was depicted wielding a crowbar. This was a reference to the character Gordon Freeman from the game series Half-Life, which is produced by Valve, the owners of Steam.
  • Even though Cid cannot be gilded by conventional methods, there is still a gilded sprite of her. Perhaps she was, at one time, also meant to boost overall DPS, and not just Click Damage.
  • Cid is called Cindy in the French version of the game, Ekkja in German, Cira in Spanish, Alice in Portuguese. All these names are exclusively female names in their respective languages, unlike the androgynous english Cid.
  • Cid is the first hero to have a skill upgrade.
  • Fortuna Fortuna's description mentions Cid: Cid walks with you to visit the monument. "Check this out," she says, and flips a coin. Heads. She flips it a few more times. Heads. Heads. Heads. "Every time," she says. A game of cards sounds incredibly tempting at the moment.
  • Prior to patch 0.10, her first upgrade's text read: Cid has the unique ability to strengthen your clicks. Upgrade him to make your clicks more powerful.
  • Cid and Yachiyl Yachiyl both have 7 upgrades each, the most a hero can have.
