* When Red is encountered in [[Mt. Silver]] during [[Generation II]], he has no speech, merely repeating an ellipsis before beginning the battle. This is a reference to the fact that during [[Generation I]] he is a silent protagonist, answering only "yes" or "no" questions. He also remains silent when confronted in [[Generation IV]].
**Ironically, in {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}}, {{ga|Blue}} calls him a ''chatty gossip''. However, this may have been sarcastic.
* Much like there is minimal information on his {{Ash|anime counterpart}}'s father, Red's father is mentioned only in passing when examining a {{wp|Super Nintendo Entertainment System|SNES}} in the [[Celadon Department Store]].
* Until the release of {{game|Platinum}}, Red's team featured the highest-leveled opponent Pokémon a player could face outside of battle arenas such as the [[Pokémon Stadium (English)|Stadium series]] and the [[Battle Frontier]], with his {{ga|Red's Pikachu|Pikachu}} at level 81, beating the wild {{p|Arceus}} found at the [[Hall of Origin]] by one level. In Platinum, however, the {{ga|Barry|rival}}'s team receives a boost in level, putting his [[starter Pokémon]] at level 85, while wild {{p|Magikarp}} can be found in the [[Resort Area]] at up to level 100. Due to {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}} giving Red's team a level boost as well, with his Pikachu topping the list at level 88, Red is again the highest-leveled Trainer opponent (though wild Magikarp still are the highest level opponent Pokémon).
