* Gale in ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'' has a habit of touching the bridge of his nose before speaking, similar to the motion a person might use to [[AdjustingYourGlasses adjust their glasses]]. Supposedly it's because he is the partial reincarnation of [[spoiler:the scientist David, who was Jenna Angel's lover in the real world.]] The forehead touch is similar to a "phantom limb" effect: [[spoiler:David]] wore glasses, and switching from wearing glasses for years to not wearing glasses still leaves behind the feeling of wearing glasses.
