* ReclusiveArtist: UpToEleven with Zarcone (also known as "The German"), the mysterious artist who drew "The King of Terror" and disappeared right after delivering the penciled art. Between that and [[AnonymousAuthor Zarcone being a pen name]] (as it used to be the norm in Italy back then), nobody has any idea where he disappeared to, not even the private detective the Giussani sisters hired to track him down. Also, the fans not even knew he ''existed'' for ''thirty years'' (most fan had read the first reprint, that had been redrawn by Luigi Marchesi, and those who had the original issue had only seen the name of the ''cover'' artist Brenno Fiumali and assumed he did the whole book), until the original creators revealed his name.

to:

* NoExportForYou / KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The animated series was produced by Creator/SabanEntertainment, and never made it to the US; it only aired on the international Creator/FoxKids networks (which have since become Creator/DisneyXD). Hence, it's never received a home media release, as Creator/{{Disney}} routinely neglects the Fox Kids/Saban archive programs they own.
