Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalBadass: In the game, Presea is a MightyGlacier who generally walks right through attacks to get to her enemies. In the OVA, she's upgraded to a LightningBruiser who dodges BeamSpam in midair like a friggin' Gundam.


Added DiffLines:

* TheBigGuy: Physically, she's roughly the same size as Genis, and yet her physical strength more than dwarfs Lloyd's. [[spoiler:Regal is the only member of the team that's physically stronger.]]

* ShadowArchetype: To Lloyd. Sheena ([[HeelFaceTurn at least initially]])represents a much darker side of Lloyd's idealism, attempting to save her world through assassination and the sacrifice of another. Her relationship with Zelos is also a mirror of Lloyd's and Colette's.

to:

* ShadowArchetype: To Lloyd. Sheena ([[HeelFaceTurn at least initially]])represents initially]]) represents a much darker side of Lloyd's idealism, unable to make any meaningful choice between saving her world and letting Sylvarant suffer and attempting to save her world through assassination and the sacrifice of another. Her relationship with Zelos is also a mirror of Lloyd's and Colette's.

Added DiffLines:

* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: [[spoiler: In the path where he dies, it's implied that he decides to betray the party for real because he felt that he could never completely earn their trust. The skit that plays afterwards shows that the party is ''extremely'' guilty about this.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SirSwearsALot: He's definitely got the coarsest language in the group, even in his battle quotes. Not quite as intense as most examples; the most vulgar he gets is calling Kratos an S.O.B.


Added DiffLines:

* TroubledSympatheticBigot: His dislike of half-elves stems from a very traumatic event in his childhood. Even so, he directly opposes the laws that discriminate against half-elves, and is far kinder to Genis and Raine that his prejudice would suggest.

* AmbiguouslyHuman: His father [[spoiler: Kratos is an angel, and his Exsphere is a Cruxis Crystal. Consider that he gets angel wings at the end of the game]].

to:

* AmbiguouslyHuman: It's referenced a couple of times, since his father is a dwarf, though Lloyd is quick to point out that he's adopted. His ''real'' father [[spoiler: Kratos is an angel, and his Exsphere is a Cruxis Crystal. Consider that he gets angel wings at the end of the game]].



* {{Badass}}: He can take on angels and gods that are thousands of years old and come out on top.



* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Without his exsphere, he's still the strongest in his village. With the exsphere, he's close to superhuman.



* BornLucky: Zigzagged. On the one hand, her clumsiness almost always causes good things to happen. On the other hand, she is doomed to a very unfortunate fate as the Chosen.



* ChurchMilitant: She's essentially a battle priestess, raised to be the Church of Martel's secret weapon. She doesn't really have the attitude though, since she tends to focus on the church's teachings about love and mercy.



* UselessUsefulSpell: Her Sacrifice arte. It heals the whole party and deals a good chunk of light-element damage to all enemies. However, it costs 150 TP, making it the most expensive arte in the game, and costs Colette her life. Good luck finding a situation where that's useful.



* [[DoesNotLikeSpam Does Not Like Carrots]] / StockYuck

to:

* [[DoesNotLikeSpam Does Not Like Carrots]] / StockYuckDoesNotLikeSpam/StockYuck: He's not a big fan of carrots. According to one of his titles, he's not a big fan of gels either.



* AnIcePerson: Ice is one of the many elements he wields.

to:

* AnIcePerson: Ice is one of the many elements he wields. In the sequel, he's given an Ice attribute.



* IntelligenceEqualsIsolation: For a while, Lloyd was his only friend, because most kids his age are intimidated by his intelligence.



* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's a bit of a wise-ass, and he has a pretty open contempt for humans. He's still a good kid underneath it all.



* [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld Really Four Thousand Years Old]]: [[spoiler:Just like Mithos and the rest.]]

* ShadowArchetype: To Lloyd. Sheena ([[HeelFaceTurn at least initially]])represents a much darker side of Lloyd's idealism, attempting to save her world through assassination and the sacrifice of another. Her relationship with Zelos is also a mirror of Lloyd's and Colette's.



* BadassAdorable: The most diminuative party member is one of the toughest.

to:

* BadassAdorable: The most diminuative party member is one of the toughest. Canonically, she's physically stronger than both Lloyd and Genis combined.



* BelligerentSexualTension: With Sheena. It's almost completely one-sided on his part, though: while Sheena does like him more than she lets on, she has absolutely no romantic interest in him.



* {{Foil}}[=/=]ShadowArchetype.

to:

* {{Foil}}[=/=]ShadowArchetype.{{Foil}}



* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Lloyd is the main target of Zelos' teasing, but Zelos also greatly envies Lloyd's idealism and willpower.



* ShadowArchetype: To Colette. Both hide the suffering that the title of Chosen bestows upon them with fake smiles. But while Colette accepts her fate with a sense of piety and self-sacrifice, Zelos simply treats his life as one big joke. His relationship with Sheena is also the polar opposite of Lloyd's relationship with Colette.



* AdaptationalBadass: In the OVAs, he's one of the most competent combatants once he joins.

to:

* AdaptationalBadass: In the OVAs, [=OVAs=], he's one of the most competent combatants once he joins.



* {{Lolicon}}: Got labelled as this thanks to the game not being clear on how old he and Alicia actually ''were'' when they fell in love... and the fact that certain fans like to ship with with Presea. Not helped by the fact that [[spoiler:she is technically in her twenties]]. One can even label Regal a {{Lolicon}} if you choose the right answer when asked about his tastes in women. He is not amused.
Zelos points this out in a {{OVA}} bonus, which earns Regal the group's disapproval until Lloyd defuses the situation. This one's PlayedForLaughs, however, as that very same OVA also cleared up the confusion. Not to mention that same OVA revealed that Alicia and he weren't as far apart in age as everyone thought.

* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking: Zig-Zaggged. They are the strongest of the Desians, except for Rodyle, who is a DirtyCoward. However, it is implied that Forcystus is actually stronger than Pronyma, but she is the leader due to some off-screen plotting.

* OnlyInItForTheMoney: The reason he's joins you for the Journey of Regeneration. Raine has a skit with him where she suspects ulterior motives, and Kratos only restates this point over and over.

* AmbiguouslyBi: While he's a HandsomeLech who's quite the ladies man, he has enough HoYay with Lloyd to be considered the closest the game has to a GayOption.
