  • It is believed that the filler for the internal item list in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal known as Teru-sama in the Western versions got the name from Teruki Murakawa. This is supported by the fact that Teru appears to be a shortened form of Teruki, while -sama is a respectful Japanese honorific. Furthermore, Teru-sama has a completely different name in the Japanese versions, in which Teruki is not listed as part of the staff.
