- Roddick is a descendant of the fourth game's Eleyna Farrence.
- In First Departure, Roddick's field sprites and animations are based off Claude's from Second History/Evolution.
- As per the hidden "Crowe ending" of SO4, it has been speculated that Crowe F. Almedio is also Roddick's ancestor.
- In Star Ocean: Second Evolution, the NPC named "SO Fangirl" at the Fanfic Convention in Fun City says, "Oh my, Roddick..." when you talk to her. It is possible she is referring to Roddick Farrence. In fact, in a Claude/Welch PA in Fun City on Claude's side, one of two mangas Welch offers Claude at the Fanfic Convention has a Fellpool male on the cover that matches Roddick's description.
- Also in Second Evolution, it is revealed during a PA in Arlia on Rena's side of the story that Claude had a dog named Roddick. Ronyx said it was the first thing that came to mind when he saw the dog's tail. Sadly, Roddick was hit by a car and killed.
- Roddick is also the only character in the game who can only learn one of the talents required to perform Music (in his case, he can only learn Rhythm Sense and never Listening).
- Roddick's armor design in First Departure bears resemblance to Cress Albein's armor from Tales of Phantasia.
- He is one of two main protagonists in the Star Ocean series that is not an Earthling, the other is Rena Lanford.
- However, if Crowe is indeed Roddick's ancestor as stated above, it would mean that Roddick has some Earthling DNA, as well as Muah DNA from Crowe being one of the Seeds of Hope.
