The main theme with (52975) Cyllarus is to restore previous security after an incident, natural accident or catastrophe, like in the movie "The Horse Whisperer" (1998), "Back to the Future" (1985), "Love Hina" (Japanese manga, 1998) or when Mulan looses her lucky cricket during the feminine test, and after, has to restore the honor of the family ("Mulan", 1998).

In the Japanese manga "Ranma 1/2" (1987), on a training journey, Ranma fell in a curse spring in China. As a result, he is cursed to become a girl when splashed with cold water, while hot water changes him back into a boy.

Rumiko Takahashi, writer of the Japanese manga "Ranma 1/2" (1987), has Cyllarus and Bienor in Cancer in the Crossing Point of the Age Progressions (Moon-Node Horoscope / Basis Horoscope).
