The names of the game's main character and villain were changed when the game was localized for Western audiences. In the Japanese version, the hero is a chef named Kokkun. The main villain was named Hors d'Oeuvre; the name Ohdove was the result of an incorrect transliteration of a French word to Japanese and back into English.
In the U.S. the Clobber Pan replaced the chef's head as the default weapon. In the U.S. version the best weapon was the Wacky Pan, which didn't exist in the Japanese version.
