  • Shear's arcade comments:
    • Original: トリケラトプスにジャークアーマーつけちゃったかもね。ちょっと強過ぎちゃう...かもね。
    • Translation: I have turned on Spectral Armor on this Triceratops. It is a bit too strong. . . maybe.
  • Maximus' name likely came from the now-invalid Triceratops species, "T. maximus". This is also Max's full name, for potentially similar reasons.
