  • The Komodo brothers, along with Tiny Tiger, were originally planned to be in the first Crash Bandicoot game, but they were both removed. So, they were introduced as N. Brio's henchmen in the second game. Thry can still be seen in the 1996 early cutscenes that were meant for the first game. A scrapped theme for Komodo Joe can be found on Youtube. In the first game was meant to have separate fights for Joe and Moe, with their own themes.
  • The Komodo Brothers were initially considered to be included in Crash Nitro Kart, along with N. Brio, Ripper Roo, Rilla Roo, and Nina Cortex.
  • The Komodo brothers were supposed to appear and have a neutral role in Crash Twinsanity during the gameplay at Wumpa Island. Both brothers and the island were removed from the game due to time restraints and limitations from the publisher.
