Since Rudy's name is actually a bit of Romanji, a few variants of his name have shown up in different media. The most common of which is "Rudy Roughnight" (like he's not been sleeping well). The official spelling is the one used here, "Rudy Roughknight", which is supposed to be evocative as a scrappy and noble fighter. Granted, this makes more sense in the original version of the game, where he uses a sword... - Vanguard 13:34, September 27, 2009 (UTC)
