He first appeared in several comic books, to whom he is most prominent and he has also made several brief novel appearances; to whom he appears as a Commander for the 501st Legion "Vader's Fist" rather than a Sergeant for the 501st Torrent Co.

Appo's name and helmet from the Clone Wars episodes he appeared in ironically resembled series producer and lead director Dave Filoni's character designs for Appa in the TV series "Avatar: The Last Airbender", a series Dave originally produced for.
