Two red lights signify overheating. Three red lights meant a general hardware failure, and four red lights meant and AV cable error. The notorious "Red Ring of Death" is actually, contrary to it's name, a 3-Light problem (General Hardware Failure).

The Legend of Zelda
In the publication "The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia" by Dark Horse Comics, it was strongly suggested that the entirety of the first legend of Zelda game actually takes place on Death Mountain. Furthermore there are a lot of similarities between the entire map of The Legend of Zelda and the Death Mountain portion of the overworld from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, giving more credence to the claim.

When the designs for the first 8 characters (Alice, Snow White, Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Pinocchio, Gretel, and Kaguya) were revealed, the notes by the director and author, Yoko Taro, repeated "Very cute! I believe she’ll/he'll sell well!" for each character. When the 9th character (Little Mermaid) was revealed he used his note to directly address his lackluster comments:

"I’ve been commenting my honest feelings of “Very cute! I believe she’ll sell well!” about all the designs we’ve presented up until now, but someone pointed out that “Yoko Taro is really slacking it with his comments.” So this time, please allow me to change the comment to: “If we’re talking cute or not cute, then she’s very cute! If you’re wondering whether she’ll sell well or not sell well, I think she’ll sell well!! But even if she does sell well there won’t be any money in it for me or Jino-san, and I can’t sleep at night thinking about the wonderful people at Pokelabo or Square Enix pocketing the money!”

The Conner android has several possible references to the Terminator film franchise. Conner is an "RK800" model, just as Arnold Schwarzenegger's character from the films is a "T-800" model initially. The name of the robot from the game is "Conner" which is very similar to the surname of two central characters from the films: Sarah Connor and John Connor. The Trophy for letting Conner die every way possible is called "I'll Be Back" which comes from Schwarzenegger's icon line from the first Terminator film.
