Lieutenant Buttfinn appeared in the Metal Warriors (SNES) episode of Continue? The Continue crew gave him the backstory that he is an editor for Space High Times and was called into action when Mitt Romney III oulawed his beloved Space Weed. Along with being the editor for a popular magazine, he is also a highly skilled mech suit pilot and soldier. His love for space weed is his drive and he will never idly allow someone to take his right to smoke it away from him. Somehow he is immune to the lycanthropic and mind altering properties of the drug, most likely due to constant use and exposure to it.
