During the credits scene, many characters from the Rance Series make short cameo appearances:


  • Haini Bach's cameo appearance at the end of the episode contradicts her introduction in Rance 03, during which it is indicated that Rance has never met her before.
  • During the chase to capture Lia in the OVA, Rance is assisted by many of the fighters from the coliseum, as well as some other characters such as Millie Lincle and Menad Shisei. In the original game this wasn't the case, as it was just him and Sill.
  • Curiously, Jean Gyanban the 2nd is absent among the coliseum fighters that assist Rance during the final battle, despite avoiding his death from the original game.
  • My Glorious Days plays over the credits sequence rather than during Lia's H scene as it was during the game.
  • The Kingdom of Zeth is the only major human nation to not have any characters from it make a cameo appearance during the end credits.
