* TheChosenOne: Adol is a rare combination of this and TheUnchosenOne. In most cases, TheChosenOne becomes {{Badass}} because they were chosen. Adol, by contrast, didn't even [[JumpedAtTheCall Jump At The Call]] -- he set out looking for calls. In the OVA of ''VideoGame/{{Ys}} I'', it turns out he has the same name as the prophesized hero, but this is [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] when the seer's superior reminds her that Adol Christin is a common name and the last one that came to town was a little girl. It turns out that the prophecy is in fact talking about him, but instead of him becoming a hero because he was chosen by the prophecy, it just correctly predicted that he'd show up and save the place. Adol's reputation begins preceeding him ''as early as the first game''. It's generally because of who he is and what he's done that he's given any powers or ancient artifacts that he doesn't get himself -- if you need a hero to save your land, it's only sensible to choose someone with job experience. In the sixth game, the daughter of Alma running the trials is not impressed with this random man who just showed up out of nowhere, but after he begins passing them, she asks around about who this 'Adol Christin' guy thinks he is. She gets ''much'' more impressed and respectful after that.

* GoldenEnding: XSEED Games refers to Toal's ending in Origin as the true ending. It's easy to see why, because at the end Toal witnesses [[spoiler:his father Cain fusing with the Black Pearl and becoming the Demonic Darm, whose body is destroyed and reduced to the the Black Pearl, with Cain still in it. The Goddesses seal the pearl and Darm away.]] In addition, at the very end it says "To be continued in ''Ys: Ancient Ys Vanished: Omen," the first game.

Finally, [[spoiler:Toal leaves behind the Silver Sword by the Roda Tree which you see sticking out of the ground in the very end of his ending...the same one Adol finds in Ys Book 1, thus explaining the origin of the sword. Toal Fact is basically one of the more important characters in the Ys universe overall, what with his ties to the books-pretty important themselves one can say-and the fact without his sword Adol would have gotten nowhere.]]

* NightmareFuel: If some things the characters says and does at times isn't enough of a nightmare fuel, imagine this: [[spoiler:Gadis survived your battle against him somehow, except now you [[https://i.imgur.com/HAg2gIr.png burned half of his face off]] and his battle form seems "decayed".]]


Added DiffLines:

* WorldBuilding: Quite a bit. While it's not quite the most internally consistent world around, the large distances and realistic travel the protagonist does gives what might otherwise be isolated areas some realism. It makes sense that references to many of Adol's adventures wouldn't be understood or known about in places that are thousands of miles apart, just because it's the same world doesn't mean traveling is any easier in our own. More generally, subtle references and a similar underlying structure to the various magic systems and the occasional reoccurring character help tie things down.

* ShroudedInMyth: A thousand years after the events of Adol's life, stories of his exploits can be found throughout the entire world. Some branded him as a just and virtuous hero, and others as an agent of chaos and discord.

** All magic in Ys I and II is this because it is sourced from the Black Pearl. Whenever the Black Pearl and other artifacts made of black emelas are used as a source of magic by anyone other than beings made of white emelas like the Eldeen, demons are generated as a side effect.

* FleshEatingZombie: ''Ys I'' has some dead soldiers that have been turned into zombies guarding the shrine. ''Ys II'' has a few zombies in the Ruins of Moondoria. They came about due to being possessed by demonic spirits. ''Ys: The Oath in Felghana'' has most of the residents including the soldiers of Valestein Castle turned into zombies due to a spell that Chester used in the castle to exact his revenge on Count [=McGuire=]. They all were caused by supernatural means.



* ZombieApocalypse: ''Ys II'' has a few zombies in the Ruins of Moondoria. ''Ys: The Oath in Felghana'' has most of the residents including the soldiers of Valestein Castle turned into zombies.
