This drawing of slightly super deformed versions of Chaz and Rika was used in the Phantasy Star IV instruction manual as a decoration for advertisement of Sega's Gameplay Hotline. Back in the day, game manuals were filled with lots of fun decorative artwork like this, but you only see that very rarely in more recent manuals. The size of the bulky phones the pair is holding dates the picture a little. If it were drawn today, they would likely be using cell phones.

This image has always made me laugh. I saw it years ago when I first opened PSIV's manual and just LAUGHED.

Chaz: Actually, Thoul, these are cell phones. Thing is, this was '94, so, uh...
Rika: You can tell they're Nineties cell phones because you can actually see the phones in our hands. ^_^
Chaz: What do we say now that the Sega hint line is no more?
Rika: Good question. Hmm... "Join Club Nintendo today, player!"?
Chaz: No, that Doc Louis guy took that one. Wow, this is tough.
Rika: "Don't delay, order today!"?
Chaz: Too commercial.
Rika: "This video game is the copyrighted property of Sega Enterprises! If I catch you illegally downloading this, I'm going to kick in your door and sell your spleen on eBay!"?
Chaz: Maybe for the next PSUniverse expansion.

Rika : Hello?
Chaz : Hi Rika!
Rika : Oh hi Chaz! I really like these cell phones!
Chaz : Yeah me too! They come in handy when you need to get in touch with someone on the road, plus the clarity is crystal clear.
Rika : I know! It sounds like you're standing right beside me!
Chaz : Yeah it does....I wonder....
Rika : Hmmm?
Chaz & Rika : ::Both turn around:: :yikes:
