In Greek mythology Medusa was a monster, a Gorgon, generally described as having the face of a hideous human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair. Gazing directly upon her would turn onlookers to stone.


  • In the Japanese version, Sumo and Amanda are looking for Medusa's blood, not her tears.
