Trivia[]

  • She is one of the four characters from Saints Row series that are playable, others being Kingpin, Yeti, and Gat.
    • She is also the only female Saints Row character that is playable as well.
  • Safeword and Lazarus are the only two agents that weren't featured or advertised in any trailers prior to the release of Agents of Mayhem.
  • While not in the player's squad, Safeword can be found under the table on her laptop at the ARK's lounge (immediately behind the spawn area). This is a reference to the Phone Phreak cutscene in Saints Row: The Third, where The Protagonist finds her under the table at Smiling Jack's.
  • She is mention in a conversation between Gat and Rama.
  • Her signature vehicle is the Mockingbird, complete with her own unique skin.
    • Its license plate, T-CUP, is a reference to Kinzie's line, "Mine's Teacup", as well as the source of her codename in her debut mission in Saints Row: The Third.
  • One of Safeword's idle animations shows her drink from a can, if you look close, you can see that it's actually a can of Saints Flow, with the M.A.Y.H.E.M. Saints logo, replacing the original logo. Saints Flow is the Saints branded energy drink from Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row IV.
  • Safeword's Deadly Touch skins resemble the Marvel character Rogue and reference her ability to absorb powers and life force through physical contact.
  • The Kinzie's Possible skin is most likely a reference to the Disney show and character Kim Possible.
  • The Sidekick agent skin and Dynamic Dual weapon skin reference Batman's sidekick Robin.
