The effects that happen to the victims in Shakedown Road strangely resemble those of the scams used by Tamami Kobayashi in that the victim is presumably set up as the perpetrator of some wrongdoing and forced to hand over his/her money as a result. It seems that the leaves on the ground of a Ginkgo biloba are the cause of such exploits. When a person steps on or an object is placed on the leaves, a group of countless ladybug-like Stands move them around instantaneously, usually causing the person to accidentally break something.
- The Ginkgo tree has a similar shape of the tree that Giorno used to avoid Koichi.
- The Shakedown Road is the first location to have a Stand, Les Feuilles.
- Shakedown Road seems to take its name from The Grateful Dead album Shakedown Street.
