Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Fabio, along with Sean and Laura, uses as their main colors the same of the Brazilian flag (blue, yellow and green, respectively).
  • The stamp on Brenda's t-shirt reads "Boa Esposa", which means "Good Wife" in brazilian portuguese.
  • In real life, brazilians do not use da before their surname, in examples of family\clans names. The correct in brazilian portuguese would be "Silva Family". The term da Silva is used only in complete names of peoples, like Pedro da Silva, not in a family\clan name.
  • Fabio Matsuda is actually a tribute to Fabio Santana, one of the biggest games collector in his country who worked as editor in some games magazines. He also created the RGB Festival, the largest brazilian Retro Gamming event. Nowadays, Santana is the PR Manager at Capcom for Brazil.
