Every character has a slot for a 5th weapon. (Item # 0x04)

  • All of them share the same name: ライトセーバー (Light Saber).
  • Mail's slot is complete. Her weapon is available within the game and works fine.
  • Tatto's slot has a sprite, but does nothing when used.
  • Gau's slot has a red box and crashes the game when attempting to use it.

Item 0x13

Item 0x23
Popful Mail PC-88 i23.png ストップウォッチ - Stop Watch. This item does nothing, even if given a timer, like ヘルメット (Helmet).

Item 0x2B
Popful Mail PC-88 i2b.png チェ~ン - Chain. Mail is the only one able to equip this. It has considerable range and even against late-game enemies, it does good damage.
