- Named for Marvel Comics artist Eliot R. Brown.
- Fast Draw's FAFNIR weapons system (that technically means "Fire and Forget Non-tube-launched Infantry Rocket") gets its name from Norse mythology.
- Though his 1987 filecard mentions Cobra Stuns, Larry Hama's original name-checked the more familiar H.I.S.S.
- His code name cames from the fact that he sees himself as an "old-west gunfighter".
