* CyberneticsEatYourSoul: Averted. Alinivar has a chance to become a mechanical Chimera Mook, which increases all of his stats and replaces his free-to-use tentacle-based attacks with more powerful ones that cost PP. It hurts like hell, though, which is why a revitalizer is nearby.

* NightmareFuel: Wouldn't be a MOTHER game if it wasn't filled to the tank with it. Chapters 7 and 8 somehow make MOTHER 2 look like a chump, with creepy enemies, Giygas' Lair BUT AS A WHOLE DUNGEON, and the obvious case of the final boss him/itself. As if Giygas wasn't creepy enough, you're forced to watch Giegue TURN INTO Giygas, which invokes even more horror tropes than the fight against him/it in MOTHER 2. Imagine being torn apart mentally by your own psychic powers, turning you into an unspeakable horror resulting in your old self possibly being lost forever. Sounds like hell, huh?

* GuideDangIt: It is possible to miss a few Points of Power on the first run if you donít explore. Any that could be LostForever have been ironed out in the re-release, but returning to Points of Power in Chapter 7 makes those bosses much more powerful but reward you with an Apple of Clarity, an item that gives you a free stat boost to everything but PP.
