|~ Hallelujah-persona pushing Allelujah to destroy HRL-Super human institute|
- Allelujah/Hallelujah on Hebrew means "Praise God", while Haptism is come from Baptism is performed on young children and is accompanied by name-giving by Christians.
- He also state that Marie was "baptism" him when he still on HRL Super-human institute by giving him a name Allelujah (due he unable to remember his own name).
- Based on his statement and his name, Allelujah probably Christians .
- Beside super-soldier concept is similar with "cyber-newtype" and "Biological CPU", both Marie/Soma and Allelujah/Hallelujah are not consider to be "Four Murasame expy" since both of them are mentally stable and not piloting a gigantic pilot suit.
- Many fans said when Allelujah being imprisoned,his straitjacket with muzzle is quiet similar with C.C. from Code Geass even with different style.
- Coincidentally, Both Code Geass and Mobile Suit Gundam 00 are mecha-theme anime, share same animation-studio and aired in same time.
- Allelujah share similarity with Ichigo Kurosaki from Bleach , both they are unable to kill their enemies and feel bitter about the death,their colour theme are orange, and they also have another persona (Zangetsu/Hollow-ichigo and Hallelujah) who always pushed them or takeover their body to kill their enemies without mercy but in others side, they can working-together with them on some situation.
- He also share similarity with Shani Andras from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED which many fans said that he is "villainous-version" of Allelujah
- Both they are a humans who modified for battle use
- Both they are voiced by Richard Ian Cox on english version
- Both they are have different eyes-colour and hair concealing one eye
- Shani personality much look like Allelujah psychotic-alter ego named "Hallelujah", who is Ruthless, sadistic and very unstable
- Its unknown if his quantum brainwaves also C-grade level just like Marie/Soma due the fact he is failed experiment of HRL Super human research institute. Since he also a "super-soldier", there is possibility that he have same level of his quantum brainwaves with her or can be higher than her since his quantum brainwaves able to make Soma going berserk
- He probably confined his intention to destroy HRL Super human institute because he think Marie is still at the institute. After he destroy it, Allelujah think he already kill her before he know that Soma Peries actually Marie Parfacy.
- Since Leo Sieg, one of survive Super Soldier in manga able to be pure-Innovator in AwotT Epilogue, its unknow if this case also can be happen to Marie and Allelujah.
