Trivia

  • Carl is one of the few characters to have a variant in each trait.
  • Oddly, Carl's occupation in-game is simply stated as "Child".
  • Strangely, Carl's "What Comes After" variant depicts his appearance after the timeskip, despite the "What Comes After" story arc taking place pre-timeskip in the comics.
  • Due to the mirroring of sprites in the game, Carl's missing eye alternates depending on which direction he is facing. Other characters that suffer these direction based inconsistencies include Rick Grimes, Dwight, Mark, The Governor, and Kenny.
  • Carl No Turning Back and Carl Road to Survival #2 are two of many Epic characters that can be ascended into Legendary characters. For other characters, see Ascendable Characters.
  • Carl Days Gone Bye and Carl March to War are two of many characters to have Parting Shot as their Specialist Skill. For other characters, see Parting Shot.
  • Carl No Turning Back and Carl What Comes After #2 are two of many characters to have Neutralize as their Specialist Skill. For other characters, see Neutralize.
  • Carl Survival Road is one of many characters to have Retribution as their Specialist Skill. For other characters, see Retribution.
  • Carl What Comes After is one of many characters to have a Special Weapon. For other characters, see Special Weapons.
  • A free 3-star Carl was given away from Scopely. However, if the player lives outside of the USA, they cannot receive it.
    • Oddly, if this rare Carl is sold in Supply Depot, the player will receive food instead of supply points.
    • Originally, this Carl also gave only +30 XP when fed to characters, but has since been changed to +630 XP.
  • Strangely, Carl What Comes After #2 appears with a blue hat and jacket, when all other appearances have it brown.
