- Canon Immigrant: From another manga by Himaruya, Susume Kitakou Housoubu And completely revamped from his initial self, who didn't crossdress at first and was quite more meek and unlucky.

- The Multiverse: Considering how Noto-sama met the countries during the Christmas 2007 Aftermath and Noto-sama 5, yet Hoke Tsukomi (representing Osaka) of Barjona Bombers is (apparently) different from Osaka-han, and Noto-sama's victim in the fourth game was Tsuko...
