* ShoutOut: Its appearance could be referencing Lucifer's plight at the end of ''Literature/TheDivineComedy''. Lucifer is found in Hell's coldest area, trapped up to his waist in the frozen Lake Cocytus, and has three sets of wings that are constantly flapping, thus keeping the lake's waters cold and making him eternally stuck in ice. Also, Lucifer has three heads, which could be referenced by The World's three forms.

to:

* WellIntentionedExtremist: When humanity was plagued by increasing warfare, disease, and natural disaster; he saw these things as signs that humanity is on the brink of utter destruction. While his methods are without a doubt evil; he never wanted to exterminate mankind but rather perform a culling of humans; in order to reign in what he saw was humanity's rampant breeding. Goldman concludes that while Pandora's boxes must be opened there must be hope in order for humanity to survive. In the 4th game his nuclear plot was a gambit to lure the AMS to the old DBR and stop The World from being released on humanity as he was unable to do so himself.
