As previously mentioned, though not an alias, Sachiko married during her career, and as a result, later games credit her surname as Kakazu.

In the Japanese version of Milon's Secret Castle (GB), she is credited as Jam Session, but the North American release reveals the alias as belonging to S. Oita.
