THE LADY HUNTER character is a parody of Batman using the Nichibutsu owl logo. The 'Batman' logo on the LADY HUNTER's chest is actually a Nichibutsu owl. When THE LADY HUNTER announces 'Reach', he holds up a Batarang-like weapon - only it's a Nichibutsu Owl-arang. One of the women who you play against will randomly turn into a Catwoman-like character if you don't beat them up in the right order after you've defeated them at mahjong.
