* IWillFindYou: The owner Jozlyn is looking for is heavily implied to be [[spoiler:the BonusBoss Sugar from ''OFF''. Both enjoy dance or view dancing and fighting as the same, both use emotes when they speak, both have eaten sugar, and both have shockingly high health when you fight them, possibly due along with their questionable sanity to their sugar consumption.

She also says, during the break in Zone 0, that she came back there expecting to find her there too. Events in ''OFF'' show us that the Batter may have killed Sugar, but there is no evidence of Sugar's presence in the underground cellar.]]

Added DiffLines:

* LethalJokeCharacter: Alain is not very useful in most field encounters since all of his competence attacks are physical, which is unable to do much damage to specters, which make up the majority of those encounters.
