** Doubtful, since [[CowboyCop Carl Roberts]] is deemed the canonical winner of the first Twisted Metal (since the plot of [[BrotherSisterTeam Jamie Roberts]] [[IWillFindYou is set with finding him again]]), and Captain Spears ending [[ShootTheShaggyDog has him die in the crossfire of a battle]] [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong when he tries to save his old squad]]. The best Captain Spears can be is the {{Deuteragonist}}, or a HeroAntagonist [[FightingYourFriend who's forced to fight Carl during the contest]].

Whimsical tricksters who tempt you with your heart's desire... yet their gifts always come at a cost, often a disturbing cost. Calypso, being the "edgiest", is probably youngest.

The Colour scheme of ''Twisted Metal: Black'' and ''Five Nights at Freddy's'' are similar to each other. The same Brown, Black, Gray and Orange colour scheme that was seen in Black. ''World's most famous family pizza place'' is apparently not the strangest wish Calypso would have granted. Not to mention Twisted Metal 3 and 4 have very similar graphics to FNAF in their endings. Plus Sweet Tooth murders children, it is entirely possible he was the murderer. His Ice Cream Truck may have also been a former truck that was owned by the Pizzeria.
