This Comic's Cast:

And here we have a level from SCV4. Richter hasn't even encountered it, although I do think he met up against some Mode 7 in Dracula X. The fire in Veros, I think, was controlled by it (it looks like crap in an emulator, which is what leads me to think as such).
For Richter, this is all strange and new.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
