Trivia / Saints Row

  • Name's the Same: The Boss should not be confused with The Boss from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater if you're a fan of both series and even if you make a female boss muscular enough. Both characters value loyalty above all else to their members of their respective deadly forces.
  • Production Nickname: During development, The Protagonist was named Mikey, but was pronounced as "Mickey". Fans decided to go with that name when needed to refer to a Male Boss by name (For the Female Boss, they use Michelle).
  • Promoted Fanboy: Famous modder IdolNinja, creator of the popular "Gentlemen of the Row" mod (which fixed many of the issues with the PC port of SR2), eventually got hired by Volition.
  • What Could Have Been: The original Beta trailer for the first game depicted the Saints as wearing green. Word is that, following the release of San Andreas, they were switched to purple to avoid accusations of the Saints being imitations or ripoffs of the Grove Street Families.
  • The Wiki Rule: But of course.
