Kazumi Totaka's Song

Screenshot Required

Kazumi Totaka returned to compose the music for this sequel to X, and as usual he hid his secret signature tune in the game. It is even found in a similar place to its appearance in X.

Save the fake doctor from planet Mapate and bring him to the base on Mordarl. Talk to your robot until it asks "What's that?!" The music will change to a weird distorted tune. Wait on this screen for 3 minutes and Kazumi Totaka's Song will play.

For all appearances of the song, see the Kazumi Totaka's Song Guide.

G-Zero Grand Prix

Screenshot Required

On the planets Dalde-Dalde and Menfarb, you can take part in races. If you win, your support robot says:

"Once you retire, why don’t you try out the G-ZERO Grand Prix?"

This is a reference to the F-Zero racing series. It may also be of interest that a Virtual Boy game named G-Zero was in development, and a similar reference was made to G-Zero in Star Fox Command, which was also developed by Q-Games.
