According to the game's artist Yoshitaka Amano from a 1987 Beep Magazine interview, Square told him to make an illustrated cover of a character (Onion Knight) wielding 2 blades. Originally, Amano wanted to draw a landscape-style drawing with no human characters, but he changed it since it was an illustration for a video game, and was later glad he did as he felt the game's final cover had more impact.
