While Vash, Meryl, and Milly are playing with the kids, Kuroneko-sama shows up after Meryl gets hit on the head with the ball.
There's a scene where Monev has his mask on has THREE bullet holes in it and then we see another scene after this one with ZERO bullet holes
Vash: People are dead! THEY'RE DEAD! You killed them! You die with them!!
Milly: Um, Mr. Vash?
Milly: Uh, actually...it's nothing!
Meryl: What does that mean?
Milly: Absolutely nothing!
Legato: And to think... I can kill every man, woman, and child in this place with the blink of an eye. The power of death is intoxicating.

Manga Corollary: Trigun Volume 2, Chapters 1, 2 (2nd half), 3 (2nd half)
The shoemaker's wife says that the husband won't respond to her, so you think his heart or something is in the bag. But in the manga, the wife says his head was cut clean off, and his head was in the blood-leaking bag.
The manga introduces a coin gimmick where Legato gives Vash a case full of coin halves, informing him that each of his assassins will be carrying the other half. If the assassin is defeated, Vash gets to collect the half until he has a complete collection.
Monev in the mirror
Monev's character is based on Venom from the Spider-Man comics, including the backwards spelled name.
