Trivia

  • In the demo of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and in screenshots of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire in the guidebook, Brendan is referred to as Orlando (オメガ Omega).
  • Brendan along with May are first playable protagonists to be related to a gym leader or a Pokémon professor.
    • They also are the only ones that have both a Mother and a Father in the games.
  • One of Pokémon Trainer's alternate costumes in Super Smash Bros. Brawl is based on the same color as Brendan's attire from Emerald. Pikachu also wears Brendan's headband from the same game.
    • In the Generation III games, Brendan and his counterpart May were the only rivals whose final evolved starter Pokémon was never shown.
  • In Ruby, one of the names that can be chosen for him is "Landon", which possibly is a reference to the land (Landon). This in turn seems to be a reference to Groudon.
    • This corresponds with in Sapphire, one of the names that can be chosen for him is "Sean", which is possibly a reference to the ocean (Sean). This in turn seems to a reference to Kyogre.
  • Brendan is the only returning protagonist whose remake design was not inspired by their original appearance. Instead, Brendan's design in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire draws influence from his appearance in Emerald.
