- Hey, It's That Voice!: If Harry Mason sounds familiar, you've probably played Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.
"Die, monster! You don't belong in this world!"
- Porting Disaster: While the US release saw the original mumbler designs in the school chapter, the game is missing a very important note (it helps explain how Alessa got burned) that could be found in the last chapter in the original Japanese and European releases.
- What Could Have Been: There was originally supposed to be a second character to play, almost certainly Cybil. There are objects in the game you can try to interact with that cause Harry to remark "I can't use this right now." You can never take or use them, and they were likely intended for Cybil.
- Harry and Cheryl were originally planned to have been named Humbert and Dolores (as in, the main characters of Lolita).
