  • In Grasstown, Santa will tell you that the only way forward is through Chacko's house. Chacko will not only help you by telling how to get through, but you'll also be able to sleep in her bed. This will give you her lipstick and a view of her sleeping in bed. The lipstick has no use.

  • In one room, called the Statue Chamber, are statues of all of the previous wearers of the Demon Crown, including the current wearer and antagonist of the game, The Doctor. However, if the player completes a series of complex tasks, they will eventually come back to this room after going through the Sacred Grounds and defeating the Heavy Brace boss. The statues are now destructible, and when destroyed, will appear as Quote (the player character), Toroko, King, and Curly Brace, the main characters of the game.

  • An item called "Chaco's Rouge" ("Chako's Lipstick" in the Aeon Genesis translation) can be found when entering Chako's house. After examining her fireplace and then immediately sleeping in her bed, the item is added to the player's inventory. Chako will also be seen asleep on the bed and will awake if Quote reenters her house. The item has no use.

  • When using the Blade at Lv. 3, a ghostly image of King appears, holding his sword while slashing multiple times; it is most likely his brave spirit remained in the sword, fighting to no end to eventually kill the Doctor. This is proven in the description of the weapon in the Nicalis translation.

  • After the battle with The Doctor and the Muscle Doctor, if the player speaks to Chako several times, she will mention how Quote is heroic like Arthur, which causes Hearts to appear above the other Mimigas' heads. This is the only way to replenish health before the Undead Core battle.

  • On the official Cave Story 3D website and in the Cave Story DSiware guide, Quote is called "Mr. Traveler." This is a placeholder name to prevent his name being spoiled, derived from Chako calling him so, after defeating the Doctor in his human and demon form.
