* Many songs in ''SuikodenV'' use one of two riffs--a fairly upbeat one from the world map theme and a melancholy one that appears pri-marily in cutscenes. The former riff in particular shows up all over the place.

* The tune of Owl City's song "Hello Seattle" is used in a few later songs, such as "How I Became the Sea."
