Sooo.... how many Journey to the West references were there actually in this game? The developers stated that they had the Buddha from Journey to the West in mind when designing Nayuta, and you can definitely pick up on that throughout the game. I don't remember all the references (and I might not have noticed them all either), but some references that come to mind are:

- The saying that the defense is always just dancing around on Nayuta's hand, not being able to escape his reach (referencing the bet between Wukong and the Buddha where Wukong tried to escape the Buddha's palm).

- The scene where Nayuta throws his rosary around Apollo's head and makes it shrink (referencing Wukong's headband).

Spoiler: Episode 5
Garan's fan and overall look appears to be a reference to Princess Iron Fan

Any other references people noticed?

I noticed the headband, but not much else...

Then again, that's all I really know about Journey to the West :oops:

Maybe it's just me, but...
Spoiler: case 5
I think Amara was designed based on one of the Bodhsathiva, though that very artsy dish may have been a magical ornament belonging to another goddess of Chinese myth. I could be getting my mythology mixed up, though.


Oh, and I think all the lawyers on which Nayuta casts his magic sutra are references to some moments when Wukong, Bajie, and Wujing were captured and bound.
