Trivia: no real evidence he is meant to be the NPC from GSC. His name is the original series was Jackson, and only the Legend of Thunder made it Vincent.
* In the {{pmin|Israel}}i dub of ''[[The Legend of Thunder!]]'' special, Vincent was named Jackson, just as in the [[original series]], because the error was caught by the director of the series dub, Maya Bar Shalom. His situation matches that of [[Eusine]].
*Jackson's name is also similar to that of Ash's Silver Conference and Ever Grande Conference opponents {{jo|Harrison}} and [[Morrison]]. Along with the aforementioned "-son" ending, they are all named after famous singers ({{wp|George Harrison}}, {{wp|Jim Morrison}} and {{wp|Michael Jackson}} respectively).
* Vincent's English name change may come directly from Pokémon Gold and Silver. There is a minor Trainer named "Junichi" in the Japanese version whose name was localized as "Vincent" in the English translation - a {{tc|Guitarist}} in the [[Vermilion City]] [[Vermilion Gym|Gym]] with three {{p|Magnemite}} and a {{p|Voltorb}}. The dubbers may have mistaken this character for an unrelated anime character. The same thing happened to Jimmy.
*Vincent is shown to have a crush on {{jo|Marina}}, who likes men who wear capes. When he was first seen in the main series, he was wearing a cape while battling [[Macy]] in ''[[EP268|Tie One On!]]''.
