** Losing to Evulz not only has a different outcome than the others, it has different consequences, as well. Such as [[YourSoulIsMine Hiro's soul being devoured,]] [[JustifiedExtraLives which keeps him from being revived ]][[FinalDeath and forces the player to begin a new playthrough.]]



* '''Zig Zagged''': Evulz doesn't kill Hiro... instead, he beats Hiro within an inch of his life and throws him into a monster-infested dungeon, without any weapons. [[UnwinnableByDesign There's absolutely no way to recover from that,]] so the game's over for all intents and purposes. However, it's not until Hiro actually dies to one of the monsters that a GameOver screen plays.
