- Vic Viper shares his birthday with Lord British and Mary.
- His birthdate coincides with the Japanese release of the arcade version of the first Gradius game. (May 29, 1985)
- His TOWN Mode quote makes a reference to the famous Konami Code, which is used in a decent amount of Konami's games, including games in the Gradius series where the character originates from. However, it does not work in this game.
