!!The game:

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** [[Series/{{Roseanne}} John]] [[Film/TheBigLebowski Goodman]] voices Dan Hagar.
** Redstone, the corrupt mayor of Subwaytown, is clearly voiced by Paul "[[Franchise/MetalGear Snaaaaaaaake!!!]]" Eiding.
** Likewise, Captain Marshall, leader of The Resistance, is voiced by Creator/SteveBlum.
** Mel is voiced by Creator/ClaudiaBlack.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[WordOfGod according to the developers]]. ''Rage'' was intended to be ''much'' bigger(there would be five or six wastelands instead of just two), at least with the overall memory size, but it wound up being cut down due to consoles much more limited storage space(the 360 version already had three discs and the PS3 struggled to fit everything on just one disc) With each new DVD, the distribution costs rise even higher per unit, so iD Software was [[ExecutiveMeddling forced to restructure the game's content to fit within three [=DVDs=] for the Xbox version and one for the PS3 version]]. It should be noted that the developers clarified that [[http://www.1up.com/news/content-removed-rage-xbox-360 no content was actually cut from the game ]], as the content that was supposed to be in the other wastelands was integrated into the two wastelands that made it into the final game.

!!The book:
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Both the original novel and the omnibus collection (''The Bachman Books'') that it was part of are out of print. However "The Bachman Books" has been released as an e-book, ''Rage'' is not available as a stand alone book.
* OldShame: For King.
