Dhux's Scar/YMMV

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

(Jazz has just sent the protagonists into a situation that has a high chance of killing them)'
Jazz: Don't worry! Their Plot Armor will protect them!


    • This:

"Especially those crazy fishermen that call themselves my "disciples". They insist on trying to get me to play this fishing mini-game..."

  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Any scene that involves Celliann and Sybil together.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The regular boss theme, "Megalomania" from Live a Live.
  • Goddamned Boss: Hisque, who has a very high HP total and summons flunkies who can not only heal her and deal heavy damage to you, but who she can drain very large amounts of health from. She can't really harm you, though.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Alpha gets one when he kills Sybil near the end of the game. It is very satisfying when you proceed to vaporize him effortlessly a little while after.
  • Narm: Use of multiple exclamation points, extremely drawn-out vowels, and all-caps text can certainly cause this in some scenes. Looking at you, Halbarad.
  • Tear Jerker: This game is filled with a lot, but the one that will probably jerk rivers from your eyes is the moment where Sybil and Celliann are finally reunited... Which becomes even more gut-wrenching and tear-jerking when Alpha shows up, and proceeds to taunt poor Celliann, who had had it rough since day one until that very moment, by killing Sybil right before her eyes by making her take the crystal bullets directed at Celliann. Bring on the hankerchiefs. You're gonna need them.
  • That One Attack: Pretty much everything starting with the Cherub soldier, which has Fearless Defense (heals a large amount and increases defense against every element and physical attacks -- it can spam this, by the way). After that...
    • Valedar has "Dissonant Harmony", which deals decent damage to your whole party and has a high chance of confusing them (and if Faye gets confused, you're screwed).
    • Hisque can "open a portal", which either summons a nasty flunky or heals her for a large amount.
    • The Impure Chrysalis' regular attack can count as this, since it has a high critical hit rate and attacks twice (Faye can be one-shotted if it lands a critical). It also has an HP to One attack (like it matters due to the aforementioned two-shotting-with-regular-attack) and a spell that severely reduces your party's defense and inflicts them with a nasty status effect.
    • Archangel Gabriel has "Scourge of Babylon". Hits your entire party and can one-shot one of your party members while severely wounding the others. It loves to use this twice in a row, too, and if you haven't healed in between, you die, no questions asked.
  • That One Boss: The Impure Chrysalis. Has high HP, (especially if you're going for the good ending) has a move that inflicts a nasty status effect on your party and heavily reduces their defense, an HP to One attack, and its regular attack, which can one-shot you even at full HP due to its high critical hit rate. Oh, and did we mention that it Turns Red and uses nothing but that attack when it's low on HP? In short, beating it is a very hard Luck-Based Mission (Fearless Defense can help somewhat...until it uses Empathetic Wave again, anyway).
  • Scrappy Mechanic: Faye is the only one of the characters that is really cut out for combat; Celiann is about as useful as you'd expect a little girl to be and Elijah can only dish out real damage by using magical amulets that are in limited supply. (Even then, a single regular attack from Faye usually deals comparable damage)
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: No points for guessing this one. (Celliann, of course)
