It's kind of a simple answer- Sure, they look the same. But if you wanted a deeper connection, every re-release of Cave Story made by Nicalis has Balrog call Jenka his aunt, in some format of the term. That doesn't exactly seem like a taunt, and if there is truth to that statement, that would raise a few points.
- Balrog and Jenka have a connection as family.
- Balrog and Misery are cousins. Recall that Jenka and Ballos are siblings.
- Ballos is probably Balrog's father.
- Puu Black looks like Balrog.
- The only way this thing described in-game is as a ghost.
- It inhabits the Island.
