* '''Implied''': In the game, your goal is not to beat the equal, CPU characters but different enemies who don't play by the same rules. During one level, your "enemy" challenges you but is interrupted by said force. Even once all his gathering methods are cut off, he manages to supply you with items despite having no "fair" way to get them.
