- Barnabas claimed to have encountered Brontes, and lost his right eye to the beast.
- In Greek mythology, Brontes was the name of one of the sons of Uranus and Gaia. The name meant 'thunder'. He and his brothers, Steropes, Arges and the Hecatoncheires were cast into the pits of Tartarus by their father, who was ashamed of his monstrous sons. Kronus, who deposed Uranus shortly thereafter, freed them briefly before imprisoning them again. They were later freed by Zeus during the Titanomachy, and forged his famed thunderbolts, along with Poseidon's trident and Hades' helm of darkness.
