* CriticalResearchFailure: Someone must have forgotten their grade school lessons in making the series. When Cobra tries to combine the tattoos of the Royal sisters it turns up as a black blotch. So he tries again this time by time illuminating each of the tattoos with one of the 3 primary colours - red, blue and GREEN!!! Er...green isn't a primary colour, yellow and blue make green. After that he's in a fight with the Guild pirate Sandra, who's using a powerful lightning gun against him. How does Cobra defend himself? He rips out a bunch of iron bars and hurls them directly into the lightning bolts, because IRON ABSORBS ELECTRICITY! Sorry Cobra, it doesn't...
