Behind the scenes
- Big Jesus Mordino is likely a reference to Big Enus Burdett of the Smokey and the Bandit films. He, and his son, Lil' Enus Burdett, are rich and frequently make illegal bets and competitions.
- An unused proto of Big Jesus exists in the game files. It uses the default leather jacket male sprite and has marginally higher SPECIAL stats, but is inferior in terms of skills and derived stats.
