Trivia / Trigun

  • Actor Allusion: William Conrad is named after the character from the radio show Gunsmoke. He also bares a striking resemblance to Patrick Stewart.
  • Fan Nickname: Leggie or Leggah for Legato; Bashu (i.e. the Japanese pronunciation) for Vash; Wolfie, Wolf or Nick for Nicholas D. Wolfwood; sometimes Naibuzu (the Japanese pronunciation) for Knives.
  • Portmanteau Series Nickname: "TriMax" for Trigun Maximum.
  • Show Accuracy/Toy Accuracy: Kaiyodo released an action figure of Monev in 2002 that proved popular with toy collectors. Only one problem- it only superficially looked like the character. The only bit that was accurate were the arm guns. The suit's color, the face mask and various details were altered and the muscle mass was sufficiently enhanced. It was really artistic license at play, since the rest of the toys were on-model. So why was it so popular regardless? The figure was 10 inches tall and massively articulated, plus it was imported to the US by Diamond, meaning a lot of people who had no familiarity with the series were buying it just because it was far beyond what most action figures of the time were like.
  • The Other Darrin: The only voice actor to return to reprise their role for the movie's English dub is Johnny Yong Bosch as Vash. Jeff Nimoy and Dorothy Fahn were both interested in reprising their roles of Wolfwood and Meryl respectively, but Funimation replaced them behind their backs mid-negotiations. Lia Sargent was also replaced as Milly, but this was expected as she had retired years earlier.
  • What Could Have Been: Much like InuYasha, Trigun was one of the [adult swim] anime shows that was meant for Cartoon Network's Toonami block, but ended up airing on [adult swim] instead due to content issues (in this case, it was due to the amount of gun violence that would have to have been edited down... and a few scenes got censored on [as] anyway)note 
    • Oddly enough, Trigun, along with the original 1963 Astro Boy, was showcased during the April Fools Day 2012 Toonami broadcast, despite the two not having aired on Toonami before.
    • Ever since Toonami was revived on [adult swim] hours, Trigun now has a chance to make an official premiere on Toonami (again, much like InuYasha before it). So far, however, it has yet to do so. Though considering Badlands Rumble was picked for their December movie marathon...
  • Word of God: Nightow says that Kuroneko-sama is female. He has also provided Wolfwood with about half a dozen middle names to go with that 'D.'
    • The best obviously being Dokonokuminomonjawaresumakinishiteshizumetarokakora, meaning "daily cigarette intake."
