Note: Mr. Black's missions are not required to complete the story, but are required for 100% completion.



  • The names of Mr. Black and Leo Teal are possible references to the 1992 film Reservoir Dogs, as their surnames are both colors and the jewellery store robbers in the film used colors as codenames.
