- "Sound Life" by Tsuneo Imahori - associated with the character of Rem, and by extension Vash's early life. It is a story of the development of a world, starting on the first evening and ending on the eighth morning (something like the Bible story of creation). The final verse of the song (in Japanese) is: Saa...atarashii sora ni subete wo shirushita kumikyoku ga hibiku, which translates to "Well then...A song that has recorded everything echoes to the new sky." The song has been on the planet for as long as humans have.
A video game, Trigun: The Planet Gunsmoke, was announced in 2002 by Sega, but little news has been heard since.
Canadian company Guardians of Order released a hardbound role-playing game (RPG) book in December 2003 based on the Trigun TV series. This was not a self-contained RPG rulebook, but worked with the company's BESM anime RPG rule set. The book contains summaries of all 26 episodes of the TV series, along with character profiles, animation model sheets, production sketches, and color images from the series.
