- Grasshopper's upgraded special in Twisted Metal: Head-On, which involves tapping the fire button to shoot beams of acid whilst airbourne, may be a nod to Pit Viper.
- Even though Grasshopper replaces Pit Viper in Twisted Metal 2, it can be seen that it was, in fact, once considered for a return in Twisted Metal 2. Pit Viper's Acid Spit animations exist, complete, in Grasshopper's texture file, but are unused (Can be seen by texture swapping Grasshopper's with another vehicle). To further prove this theory, Grasshopper's files in the PC port are, respectively, initialed "PV".
- On page nine of the art booklet included with the Extra Twisted Edition of Twisted Metal: Head-On, a render of a complete Pit Viper with a model different to that of the modern Grasshopper can be seen. From this, it can be deduced that it was at least considered for a return in either Twisted Metal: Head-On or what became Twisted Metal: Lost.
- Pit Viper is the only vehicle in Twisted Metal (1995) not to appear in any other Twisted Metal game.
- According to David Jaffe, a model for Pit Viper was created for Twisted Metal (2012) but was cut from the final game.
