- Like his fellow Renegade Taurus, Red Dog is depicted in the G.I. Joe Movie as fighting with a melee weapon in addition to a firearm, in this case some sort of wooden sports tool. The figure, however, did not come with this item.
- Red Dog's last name comes from Cape Taputapu, on the main island of Samoa.
