  • He announced during the 59th Creature Talk that he would name his fan base the Anal Army.

  • His outro song is "Thumper" by Waterflame.
  • His most popular video is WOOL


  • His original Minecraft skin was Chuck Greene, the main character from Dead Rising 2.

  • His dog Ein was loosely based on the corgi from the anime Cowboy Bebop.
  • When he lived in the old Creature House, he hung up posters of One Direction and Justin Bieber in plain view of his webcam. Whether or not he genuinely likes those performers, he has stated that the posters exist to troll his fan base. He had also hung up posters saying "I still copy," which is a reference to the notion that gamers "copy" each others series by playing the same games. It is also a reference to the fan flame wars between his fans and PewDiePie's.
  • He has the most remixes out of all the Creatures; due to his Wool video.

Technically, his vote was neutral, but Kootra and Danz indirectly marked it down in favor of Gassy's removal even though James himself would have preferred that Gassy stayed. 
  • He was the only Creature who lived in the second Creature House. All other members (aside from Ze) lived in houses or apartments near the house. This would ultimately be another factor in renting an office, as opposed to another Creature house, when the lease on the second house ran out.
