  • The Lusitano is a famous Portuguese breed traditionally used in bullfighting. The coat color implies that this horse is a young "rose grey," in which the foal is born chestnut or bay and greys out to mature into a white color. A rose grey is different from the stereotypical "dapple grey" that the Tersk exhibits, where the foal is born black and greys out to white in time.
  • After the mission The Last Enemy That Shall Be Destroyed, Jack Marston, after leaving his parent's graves, will walk to his horse which seems to look like a Lusitano. It is unknown why he uses this horse, since he uses a Standardbred Pinto in most of his missions with his father.
  • The Lusitano is also quite similar to the Ardennais, but has a pale face.
  • The Lusitano Nag can be unlocked in multiplayer, but its appearance is different than the single player Lusitano.
  • The game describes it as a red roan. However, the red roan is a bay horse with a roan gene and gives the horse a reddish-brown color and always with black mane and tail.
