Ivan actually never appeared in the game, he is just mentioned.
Ivan finds tools for the demolition crew, that he donates to them. He is believed to work for the military, as all his findings are usually gun related. Ivan supposedly found a missile launcher for the crew and donated it to them, as well as the air strike plane. He later found the chain gun, which he says fell off a lorry (British for truck).
- Although Ivan is said to have found the missile launcher, there is a price tag on the left side of the tool. This was probably added for humorous reasons, or he possibly just bought it.
- Although Ivan is never mentioned in Rubble Trouble Tokyo and Rubble Trouble Moscow, the weapons he apparently found are still in the games.
- Nitrome programmer Aaron Steed once replied to a fan on Nitrome's Facebook page about Ivan's whereabouts in Rubble Trouble Moscow: "Cousin Ivan wad arrested for smuggling weapons into Zimbabwe. We try not to speak of him anymore."
