The ferryman named Karon is an interesting character from Secret of Mana.

Charon helps you cross the Sea of Wonders into the Moon palace. [attachment=162]

But because his sprite is the same as a Robin Foot, the game recognizes him as an enemy. [attachment=163]

You can't kill him with weapons but magic can kill him. [attachment=164] [attachment=165]

Obviously the Robin Foot enemy sprite that Karon has is based off of Robin Hood.

Karon, however, is based off of Charon the ferryman from Greek mythology. [attachment=166]

Charon would let the dead cross the river Acheron to the underworld of Hades, a place of gloom and doom, if they paid him a silver coin.

Karon, though, let's LIVING people cross a desert in a SANDSHIP for FREE. But they lead to the Moon Palace which has the troubled town music playing ("A Phantom and a Rose" is the song).

Karon also is aptly named after Pluto's moon, Charon. Which goes hand and hand when he crosses space to get to the MOON palace.[attachment=167]
