  • Much like how Paul Bandey and Ed Marcus were referred to as the "Old Bastards" by fans on YouTube for using an almost-identical voice that sounded very aged, Rand has been nicknamed the "Guy Who is Trying Too Hard to Sound Cool" for using exaggerated cartoonish voices for Tien Shinhan, Turtle and the Bio-Men, and for speaking very quickly when voicing Android 17 and Garlic Jr. He has also been nicknamed the "Middle-aged Bastard".[1]
