Morel from Professor Layton is a nod to The Invention of Morel

Morel is a character in Professor Layton’s sixth video gameProfessor Layton and the Azran Legacy. He is the head of the tribe of Phong Gi.

His name (also a type of mushroom, related to the islanders’ strange hairstyle) is a nod to the book “The invention of Morel” by Argentinian author Adolfo Bioy Casares, which, in turn, alludes to the famous Moreau from “The island of Doctor Moreau”, the classic by H. G. Wells.
