The miniboss, Blocky, was originally one of the enemies in HAL Laboratory's Adventures of Lolo series.

If you free the same animal friend as you're already riding, the sack will instead contain Gooey, who will refill your health. Infrequently, you will find Blob, a female Gooey, and she rewards you with an extra life.

In the original Japanese version, however, Blob's role is filled by Chao, the female protagonist from Famicom Fairytales: Yuuyuuki, a Japan only Famicom Disk System adventure game.


Sound Test

When you unlock the Sound Test, there is an image of Kirby, Rick, Kine and Coo sat around a table, while Gooey and Blob are in the background playing a piano.

Again, in the Japanese version, it is Chao who appears playing the piano, recreating the ship's lounge scene from Famicom Fairytales: Yuuyuuki.
