- Natalia Poklonskaya
- Rex changed his name to this after the real world events of Russia annexing Crimea took place in early 2014. Natalia Poklonskaya was the new attorney general appointed to Crimea from Russia, and her fame skyrocketed after her initial press conferences due to her unusually cute appearance in comparison to the usual attorney generals. Much fanart was drawn of her, especially in Japan due to this.
Rex is a known fan of the Metal Gear Solid and Super Smash Bros. series.
