Game Trivia

There are two characters in this game known as Error and Bagu (the latter of which is Japanese for "bug"). Many players attribute these names to actual bugs and errors, but it was actually a joke implemented by the developers. Ironically, that also means Bagu was meant to be named Bug, but the localization team (like many people) didn't catch onto the joke, so Bagu's name really is a bug.
