As was typical in the early days of game developments, developers were either not allowed to be credited, or if they were, they were required by the company to use pseudonyms.

In Ghosts 'N Goblins for the NES, she is credited as Hal, which is a localization of Haru, two-thirds of Harumi's given name.

She has also been credited a Tarumi, but it is unknown why the H was changed to a T.
