After Murdock struck out, Johnson was up. When Rocky Rivers throws the ball, Pepper Johnson becomes petrified with how fast the ball is going. He does not move and the ball goes through to the catcher and the umpire calls it a strike. Next, Rocky Rivers hit Johnson with the ball intentionally. Johnson got very angry about that and this starts a fight between the two baseball teams, in which Yamcha beat everyone up easily.
- He resembles Staff Officer Black from the Red Ribbon Army, except he has more hair.
- In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, by equipping the accessory Hercule Wig 2 with Yamcha's Baseball Uniform equipment set, it makes the Future Warrior resemble Pepper Johnson without his baseball cap, as his hairstyle is similar to Hercule's balding hairstyle in Dragon Ball GT.
