* The NES version of Lifeforce implies that Zelos is so incomprehensibly big, space and stars can be seen inside of its stomach. It is entirely possible that one would only even know they were inside of Zelos if they were being attacked by its forces. In other words... ''What if the entire Metallion star system is still inside it!?

* The NES version of Lifeforce implies that Zelos is so incomprehensibly big, space and stars can be seen inside of its stomach. It This makes sense, as the manual outright states that Zelos consumes galaxies whole. Therefore, it is entirely possible that one would only even know they were inside of Zelos if they were being attacked by its forces. In other words... With this in mind, ''What if the entire Metallion star system is still inside it!?it!?''

* The background music for stage 3 of Salamander/Lifeforce is called "Planet Latis". Considering that Planet Latis appears to be the home planet of Lord British, it would seem to suggest that stage 3 is Planet Latis itself. You know, that stage that appears to be ''made of fire''. If this isn't the system's star, then what exactly happened to Latis??

***the creature only factors into the plot for Lifeforce, ironically. Zelos is not treated as a planet-eater in Salamander's canon.

* Why are most of the Gradius final bosses so easy? [[ILetYouWin Because they take a dive]]. [[CameBackStrong You see, every time the final bosses get defeated, the Bacterian come back stronger and more powerful]]. Eventually, there will be a point when the Bacterians are too powerful for the Vic Viper to fight, causing the Bacterians to win and take over the universe.

** Not to mention the covers to versions of the game branded as "Salamander" feature the titular creature represented by a flaming snake. While it could refer to the SegmentedSerpent enemies featured in most of the games, they never factor in the plot.

** In Stage 7, why is your ship capable of flying through an area being sucked up by a black hole, the only signs of struggle being its shaking animation? Because, according to [[AllThereInTheManual the manual]], the player ships have a maximum speed of ''[[FasterThanLightTravel five times the speed of light]]''.
