* CanonName: Her name is Catherine Rain Bilstein.Bilstein, as evidenced by [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/capcomdatabase/images/0/04/PlasmaSecretFile.png the cover]] to Issue #19 of ''Capcom Secret File''.

* {{Crossover}}: The only member of the ''Star Gladiator'' cast playable in a ''[[CapcomVsWhatever Vs.]]'' title, in ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2 Marvel vs. Capcom 2]]''. Sadly, he'd be later DemotedToExtra and cameo in Anime/TekkamanBlade's ending from ''[[VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom Tatsunoko vs. Capcom]]: Ultimate All-Stars''. He also appears as a card in the Heroes and Heralds mode of ''Ultimate [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 Marvel vs. Capcom 3]]''.
* {{Expy}}: 30% [[Franchise/StarWars Luke Skywalker]] and 70% [[Franchise/StarWars Han Solo]]. He's one tough and gruff looking man with a heart of gold who is forced to undertake particularly unsavory work for a good cause, is good friends and partner with Gamof, a buff and fuzzy alien who happens to be an expy of [[Franchise/StarWars Chewbacca]], wields a lightsaber-esque weapon along with some impressive kenjutsu skills, and that he battles against a DarthVaderClone who leads an evil empire.

* {{Expy}}: Ammo belt across his torso? Check. Comes from an arboreal planet? Check. Big tall furry guy? Check! He's friends with a bounty hunter and also a family man? Double check! It's damn obvious he was based from [[Franchise/StarWars Chewbacca]]. He also pulled a move or two from [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Zangief's]] moveset too.

* {{Expy}}: To [[Franchise/StarWars Luke Skywalker]]. Even though Hayato is seen by many as being the Luke expy, Blood can also be considered one as well, given the fact that he wields a lightsaber-like weapon while having a cybernetic hand and that his own backstory had explained that during the time he was under Bilstein's command, Bilstein, who is seen as the DarthVaderClone, had treated him well as if he was his own "son".

* SliceAndDiceSwordsmanship: Justified; while Gerelt's style of fencing involves way more slashes than you'd expect, limiting him to thrusts and stabs would make Gerelt rather one-dimensional as a fighter.



* SdrawkcabName: In the Japanese version of ''Star Gladiator 2'', some of his quotes, though translated into meaningful sentences, appear to be written in an alien language. However, when read backwards, they form "alternate" phrases such as "Shin no ending mitekureta?" ([[BreakingTheFourthWall "Did you see the true ending?"]]) and "Oppai, boyoyon, boyoyon....!" ([[GagBoobs "Boobs, boyoing, boyoing...!"]])

Despite having a kind and cheerful personality, Luca is very naive when it comes to the concepts of life and death and that she's unable to comprehend any action that differs from right and wrong.
