Trivia

  • He and his brothers are called Alaskan Malamutes several times in Ginga Densetsu Weed, despite the fact that their father was mentioned to be a Siberian Husky.
  • He looks almost identical to Kichinosuke from the GDW Anime, the only difference between them are the white markings above Kichinosuke's eyes and their eye color.
