* {{Bowdlerise}}: For the SNES port, as usual: the special kill animation for bladed hits (which sliced foes in half) and Jennety's poisoned daggers (melted foes) were removed, the boss ''Blood'' was renamed ''Boots'', the ''Mardia'' enemy "acid puke" attack was replaced by bomb tossing, and the female mook [[{{Stripperific}} graphics]] were touched up a little to cover more.

''Captain Commando'' is an arcade BeatEmUp created by {{Capcom}} in 1991, based on its at-the-time SeriesMascot, the titular captain. It was one of many {{spiritual successor}}s of Capcom's first BeatEmUp, ''VideoGame/FinalFight''. Among its unique features (back then) were the option for 4 simultaneous co-op play and the ability to control [[MiniMecha mecha suits]] scattered on the stages (similar to ''VideoGame/MegaManX's'' Rider armors). The arcade game received a [[SuperNintendo SNES]] port in '95 and a UsefulNotes/PlayStation one in '98.

* ArtEvolution: The '86 Commando (when he appeared on [[NintendoEntertainmentSystem NES]] manuals as Capcom's mascot), '89 Commando (ditto SNES manuals) and final {{Anime}}-styled game Commando look completely different from each other.

* CapcomVsWhatever: He appears (with Mack, Ginzu and Baby Head as his {{Assist Character}}s) in ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfTheSuperheroes Marvel vs. Capcom 1]]'' and ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2'', and the four alone, plus Druk, Shtrom, Shtrom Jr. and Doppel (technically, since he's always in the form of someone else) appear in ''VideoGame/{{Namco x Capcom}}''.

* AllThereInTheManual[=/=]ExpandedUniverse: The 2-volume manga gives further background to the Captain Commando characters, such as the backgrounds of the enemies and commandos alike. It also includes a few characters who show up in the manga like Sarah Kisaragi.

** Another enemy, [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110113232707/capcomdatabase/images/8/8e/CapComMardia.png Mardia]], is even more muscular, but somewhat {{ambiguous|Gender}} (as it [[HiddenEyes obscures her face]], and, unlike Carol and Brenda, Mardia shares the more violent death animations with male enemies). Wires on the back of [[http://www.spriters-resource.com/resources/sheets/52/55292.png her sprite]] suggest that she's a cyborg.
