Trivia 

  • The character is named after the commander of Galactor from the original 1972 series, although they bear significant difference in being an alien, as well as a former "Gatchaman". NTV and Tatsunoko's materials also spell their name as "BERG-KATZE" or "Berg Katze", while the original character often had the second part of his name spelled "Katse".
