* Subverted in ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend''. The bass player for Kabbage Boy is the only member of the band who shows Eddie any respect, and also the only member of the band who survives when Ormagoden attacks. Of course, he was also the only band member who had the sense to start running as soon as he saw Ormagoden.

* Inverted with Kill Master and the Thunderhogs in ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend''. In fact, Eddie gets kind of annoyed over how much [[AmazonBrigade Rima and the Zaaulia]] enjoy Kill Master's bass music.
