Level up restriction
In the Super Famicom version of the game, Nera could only make it to Level 10 in the second generation, as well as being uncontrollable. The Sony PlayStation 2 and Nintendo DS versions remove this limitation and allows her to be controlled in the second generation.
Nera's original Japanese name, Flora, is the name of the goddess of flowers in Roman mythology. She is also associated with springtime and fertility. Flora would lend her name to the English word, flora, which means plantlife of all kinds. The name Nera itself is a symbolic Hebrew name given to girls born on Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights and means "candle" or "Light". It is also the feminine form of nero, the Italian word for the color black; this serves to contrast Bianca, whose name means "white".
