The egg-shaped guy is a reference to the ancient NES game Technos Samurai: Downtown Special / Kunio-Kun no Jidaigeki dayo Zenin Shuugou, a sequel to the better-known River City Ransom (which had recently had a fan-translation when this page was written.) In that game, he appears whenever you enter a new area, giving that speech. In that game, I believe he's a reference to some aspect of the Jidaigeki plays that Downtown Special is based on. --RuriRuriRuri (talk) 09:16, October 30, 2013 (UTC)
