* All but one of the end-of-chapter bosses in ''VideoGame/LiveALive'' are named in some way after "odio," Greek for "hatred." This ranges from a Tyrannosaurus Rex named O-D-O, to a wrestler named Odie Oldbright, to a computer program codenamed [=0D-10=]. [[spoiler: Naturally, that's because they're all different forms of the [[ManBehindTheMan Demon King Odio]], whom you face in the final chapter. And the reason one of the chapters doesn't end with fighting an Odio incarnation is because ''[[TomatoSurprise you're playing as the man]] who [[FallenHero eventually becomes him]]''.]]
