Trivia

  • The name "Volpe" means "fox" in Italian, which is quite ironic due his sneaky actions (informing the police).
  • His first name is likely ispired by the character Fredo Corleone played by John Cazale in The Godfather series of films. His surname may have been inspired by Albert Volpe a crime boss played by Carmine Caridi in The Godfather Part III.
  • In GTA Chinatown Wars, Rudy D'Avanzo found out that there was an informant in the ranks, but sent the assassin, Huang Lee after the wrong man - Jimmy Capra.
  • It is possible that Fredo and his brother are based on cousins Frank and Edward Lino who were both Capos in the Mafia, one of which, Frank, turned informant against Bonanno boss Joe Massino in 2006.
