Trivia Edit

  • Even though she appears to may have romantic feelings for Spike in the anime, it is not clear whether she feels the same way about him in the games since she is usually only used by Natalie as a teaser to get Spike to like her.
  • Helga appears in the concept art of Project KIDZ, implying that she was originally going to appear in Ape Escape.
