- There were intended to be a total of twelve bosses, with the other three being a pachinko machine named Pachi-Pachi, a playing card, and a strange green creature simply known as "The Light". They were all cut for various presumed reasons, including making the level easier and shorter, their gameplay mechanics being too confusing, or time restraints.
