  • Trivia

    • Mugen and Spike of Cowboy Bebop share a strikingly similar physical appearance, including a similar, if not identical, hairstyle. Their respective fighting styles also favor high kicks. They also share very stubborn attitudes and pasts which they regret, although Spike is much more calm, intelligent, and less anti-authoritarian than Mugen. This similarity is strengthened in the English dub of both shows, as both characters are voiced by the same voice actor, Steven Jay Blum.
