Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In real life, Phosphorus is almost never found freely in nature; except for minerals such as apatite. Phosphorus is found organically in sources of bone ash and guano and is also produced in supernovae as a byproduct of supernova nucleosynthesis, where the phosphorus-to-iron ratio from the supernova remnant is believed to be 100 times higher than Milky Way supernovae byproducts in general.
