* One of these becomes a HUGE plot point in the original CaptainTsubasa series. When Tsubasa's boat captain father was working in Brazil, he spotted a young man who had just thrown himself into the sea and rescued him. After a pep talk, the young man pretty much brought himself back from [[DrowningMySorrows a months-long drunked depression]] brought by a ''severe'' BreakTheCutie process, and decided [[IOweYouMyLife to help his savior]]; Tsubasa's dad told him that he could travel to Japan and help his son, who lived alone with his mother and needed a ParentalSubstitute. [[spoiler: That man, obviously, is Roberto Hongo, Tsubasa's BigBrotherMentor.]]
