Crow guidebook

Artwork from the guidebook of Ninten fighting a Crow.

  • In the original Famicom release, it held a cigarette in its wing, and was indigo in color.
    • In all later versions, the cigarette was removed for censorship reasons and the crow is dark blue rather than indigo. A similarity is within the crow's red shoes which it wears upon its feet- those were not changed. The beak and eyes remain the same as well.
