Found a solution! Will give results to those who have a similar issue as I do.
Instead of using text codes in the command list for the main menu, I found a plugin called Command Icons that lets me have different images for my menus that do not conflict with how they appear in battles.
I'm trying to see if I can change the name of the item category while using Mog's Battle System.
Currently, I'm using another plugin that makes it so my main menu has an icon for the Inventory, but when in battle, Mog's battle system takes the literal text used for it and displays it.
by now, I think most people know that I hate misanthropic bad guys, but I realize one more reason I hate them so much is because the motive is easy and takes no thought to come up with. It's actually more challenging to create a villain that doesn't have that motive.
And back. Trying to work online with no internet for 1.5 days was...interesting. I felt like a character in a old Sierra game trying to find internet due to all the hoops I had to jump through just to get online for work.
