* AwesomeButImpractical: The toy version of the Toad Croaker. While in the show, games, and comic it was presented as more or less a one man recon vehicle, the toy was altered slightly to look like a left shoe, complete with treads on its bottom. The reason was so that kids would use it to smash it down onto Toad Trooper action figures, "stepping" on them... Needless to say the toads' own Double Bubble didn't come anywhere close to this level of awesome.

* TheMentor: Bucky actually has one in the form of the mysterious Mentor, a rabbit who taught him how to be a warrior. Given how young he's portrayed as, one wonders when he had time to do that AND go through the Academy on Genus.

* ImpliedLoveInterest: While Jenny and Bucky were implied a few times to having feelings for each other (Jenny got jealous when Mimi kissed Bucky and Bucky once said that he'd trust Jenny with his life and that he'd go to the ends of the Aniverse for her, plus the way he winked when she hugged him) they never treated each other any differently than their other crewmates. In fact, the one who received the most affection from Jenny was Willy.
