He is one of the four characters from Saints Row series that are playable, others being
Gat, Yeti, and Safeword. He and Yeti will occasionally play chess on the ARK, a reference to Saints Row The Third where their Saints Row versions played chess on multiple occasions.
Kingpin's Hoverboard Not Included skin could be a reference to Marty McFly the main character of the
Back to the Future Franchise. Kingpin shares the same facial features with Hip-Hop artist, Hopsin.
Kingpin's SMG largely resembles a stockless variant of the
KRISS Vector sub machine gun. He appears to remember some of his past life, as he mentioned he felt like he knew Yeti from somewhere.
He has a foot fetish.
