** The arcade version of the original Arrangement will stop the percussion of the music when you stop moving, implying that the drumbeats are Taizo's steps.

* InflatingBodyGag: Every single enemy is defeated by inflating them until they burst. In ''Arrangement'', it extends to where the players can do this to each other.

''Dig Dug'' is a DiggingGame by Namco, first released as an UsefulNotes/ArcadeGame in 1982. The objective of the game is for your player (initially just named "Dig Dug", but later changed to Taizo Hori - see PunnyName below) to dig underground and eliminate all of the monsters on each stage using a special pressure pump to inflate them to bursting. You can also dig out the dirt beneath buried rocks to drop them on enemies. There are two types of foes: Pookas, somewhat harmless round things that bounce around and go about their business, and Fygars, dangerous dragons that can breathe fire. The further down you are when you kill one, the more points you'll receive. Throughout each level, you'll sometimes come across vegetables that will boost your score. The enemies can turn into ghosts and slowly work their way through the dirt to close in on you.
