* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: Takayuki Yamaguchi is a '''huge''' fan of the legendary anime & tokusatsu singer [[note]]and occasional voice actress[[/note]], Creator/MitsukoHorie, so he named Tsumiko Horie after her [[note]]Tsumiko is a rearrangement of Mitsuko[[/note]], and naturally Mitsuko Horie ended up voicing her in the anime version.



* UnfortunateNames: "Horie/Horia" sounds rather unfortunate in English.

* AFatherToHisMen: Compared to most villians, Harara has an unusual love and appreciation for his minions, being forgiving of their mistakes and grateful for their sacrifices. He's not quite AffablyEvil to people in general, but a homicidal mutant horror couldn't possibly ask for a better boss.

Oh yeah, and it's violent. ''Really'' violent. Were talking [[LudicrousGibs "guts spewing, blood gushing, skin melting, bones-sticking-out-limbs" violent]]. Watch at your own risk, folks.

* {{Expy}}: Jin Saotome from ''VideoGame/{{Cyberbots}}'' (and, later, CapcomVsWhatever) is a dead ringer for Kakugo. They even wear the same scarf!

* IdiotBall: Harara in the anime, right after Kakugo beats all the demons that are thrown at him. Instead of going out and fighting Kakugo himself, Harara decides posses the body of the last demon that he sent via a machine. The problem is that 1) Harara was told that any damage the demon's body takes will be transferred onto him. 2) The demon's body is stiffening due to rigor mortis, limiting Harara's movements. And 3) It was established that Harara was a better fighter then Kakugo and could more then enough take him in a full match. But no, Harara decides this is the best option. [[spoiler: End result, Kakugo beats the demon's body silly and finishes by punching it's head out. Yeah.]]
