The Pit Boss's daughter Twinkle at first appears to be attracted to Modo, but when Modo begins to explain that he isn't ready for that kind of committment, Twinkle reveals that she really wanted to keep Modo as her pet and is disgusted by the idea that she would want Modo as her significant other.

* GainaxEnding: "Desperado" ends with everything becoming DeliberatelyMonochrome and a Creator/RodSerling lookalike to step in and narrate the end as if it were an episode of ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959''.

The Biker Mice get along with them just fine.
