  • In the English release of the DS remake, Sancho speaks in a very thick accent, which is very conspicuous compared to the other inhabitants of Gotha.
  • Because of his name and appearance, as well as his Spanish accent in the English localization, it is very likely that Sancho was based on Sancho Panza from Miguel de Cervantes' novel Don Quixote.
