  • Kierkegaard is never fought, but the player should expect to be assaulted by dozens of enemies upon entering his "throne room".


  • Named after the Danish philosopher and religious author Søren Aabye Kierkegaard. In real life, Kierkegaard believed that the only way to escape the anguish of living was to commit a "leap of faith" into religion.
  • It's implied that Kierkegaard was regenerated into Ko-Shi and Ro-Shi after his death. Ro-Shi chants "Believe, Believe, BeLIEve" and "Become as Gods...", implying that he was tricked into becoming Ro-Shi. Pod Unit 042 also mentions that Ko-Shi may be suffering from memory leakage from its past life.
