  • James Rolfe (as himself from Rental Reviews) made a cameo in the "Amiga CD32" episode of The Angry Video Game Nerd where the Nerd inquired if anyone in Surf Ninjas got their heart ripped-out Kano style since it happened in the video game adaptation. After James uncomfortably denies this, the Nerd hangs up on him as James calls the Nerd an asshole for his rudeness.
