Bad Export for You: Super Valis IV was a slimmed-down port of the original Valis IV, which never made it outside of Japan. This version only has one playable character as opposed to three and fewer levels, but then again it makes sense with the reduced storage capacity of an SNES cartridge as opposed to the CD format for the TurboGrafx-CD that the original version had.
From the gaming side we have Lucia, the heroine from the Famicom-NES platformer The Wing of Madoola.
From the Anime side we have Yoko Asagiri from Genmu Senki Leda and from the Queen's Blade franchise, we have Leina Vance, the main heroine, who not only looks a bit like Yuko, armor-wise, her own name sounds phonetically similar to Lena Brande, the heroine from Valis 4. And while she doesn't look the part at first, Nanael from QB changes her clothes latter on, with a similar armor used by Yuko in her very first games.
