You know, I've never heard of this game until Robert sent me the article - and it's really quite cool! Way ahead of it's time for an 8-bit console RPG. Now I wish I could find an actual cart...
The intro totally bleeds Ninja Gaiden, right up to the "Tecmo Presents 1991" at the beginning and the fast paced music. The rest of the soundtrack doesn't quite hold up in the same way, but it's still cool.

Well that was just the translation they went with. In Suikoden 3, the name of your Griffon is Fubar, but a lot of places initially translated it as Hoover, since that sounds...a bit better (even though it's more like a vaccuum cleaner.)
Similarly, I think Harman is a better translation than Haman, but that's the one the translation uses. The latter uses less letters which is relevant in old NES games like this.

I'd obtained the game a while back, started it, then laid it aside when I decided to beat San Andreas and a few other goodies last winter. It wasn't until my brother got me into Tri-Ace and Radiata Stories, and read some review of their games that mentioned this, that I decided to pick the game up a again and play it out. Glad I did, though and glad you all like the article.
