The boss of the 3rd stage is inspired by Sato, a character of the movie 'Black Rain' (directed by Ridley Scott and acted by Michael Douglas and Andy Garcia). Sato was interpreted by the Japanese actor Yusaku Matsuda, died shortly after the movie was made. Even the stage when you fight the boss (the factory) seems somehow inspire from the movie's background (in a movie's scene, Nick - interpreted by Michael Douglas - try to defeat Sato in a steelworks, quite similar to the game's stage).
