Trivia

  • In one of the stages in The King of Fighters XIII, there is a poster with Jack's face on it advertising the Neo Black Cats. It would seem that he finally achieved his dream of turning them into an interpretive dance group.
  • His dislike of Chinese food likely stems from a US saying of how Chinese food never makes one full no matter how much one eats.
  • Jack was considered for inclusion in The King of Fighters XIV along with John Crawley, however they did not make the cut due to their lack of popularity.[1]
  • In the English translation of AOF2, Jack claims to be from Oshkosh, but this is not present in the Japanese script.
