* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: The Deimos in a nutshell. A SocialDarwinist society of monsters that thrive on combat and use strength as a measure of stature. While Deimos do place emphasis on strength and individuality, they're a bit more complex than that, acting more like [[Franchise/StarTrek the Klingons]] than monsters.


Added DiffLines:

* TokenEvilTeammate: Densimo, the brief time he's on your side.
** Camellia is a subversion serving on the Deimos side. She [[spoiler: betrays Darc to the Coleopt Queen shortly after they encounter Bebedora in the hopes of taking the Water Stone for herself]] and takes every chance to swap verbal jabs with Delma. The others want to off her as retribution and move on, but Darc gives her another chance. The second time, it only SEEMS that she's betrayed Darc. After [[spoiler: Droguza takes the Water Stone]], Camellia stops trying to be manipulative and fights for Darc on her own going forward.

* Deconstruction: The game acts as one for the standard SavetheWorld plot. FantasticRacism runs rampant in this universe, and as opposed to being beacons of hope that transcend established limitations, (like many JRPG heroes tend to be) the two main heroes ignite the flames of this social gap even further, and have open disdain for the opposing species. The actions the two teams take against each other [[spoiler: also very nearly cause TheEndoftheWorldAsWeKnowIt]], and only through a lot of soul-searching and [[spoiler: TeethClenchedTeamwork do they fix the problem they cause]]. None of the game's heroes are flawless.

** The Empire itself is also comprised of racists that use signature salutes with no compunction about attacking what they see as lesser people. Makes one think....



** Latter, he does is for Camellia. Twice.

Added DiffLines:

* EnemyMine: After [[spoiler: Kharg and Darc's parties duke it out]], the BigBad swoops in and steals all of the [[MacGuffin Macguffin]]s they worked hard to gain. This forces the two parties to put their personal grudges to the side and work together to take him down and SavetheWorld.


Added DiffLines:

* FantasticRacism: Much of what drives the narrative: Humans and Deimos hate each other (partly due to one another's reliance on Spirit Stones, centuries-old grudges, the works ETC.) to the point where the two species attack each other on sight, which causes almost all of the misunderstandings that put Kharg and Darc's factions at odds with one another. The factions end up having to [[ThePowerofFriendship overcome these feelings]] in order to [[spoiler: unite and fight the BigBad]].


Added DiffLines:

* MacGuffin: The Great Sprit Stones.


Added DiffLines:

** Also before Darc's takeover, [[spoiler: Densimo]]; to Gorma's chagrin.


Added DiffLines:

* VideoGameCaringPotential: The Kirjath side-quest for Darc. Despite not really being that interested in Kirjath's plight, getting it done means that Darc took time out of his quest to find these Tablets (which, to be fair, are put right in your face so you can't miss them) for someone he didn't really have to help. And hey, the second-best HP-boosting accessory in the game as a reward? GoodFeelsGood. And so does gratitude, if you wanna be Deimos about it.

* EasilyForgiven: Darc welcomes Delma back into his service even after she stabs him in the back and tries to steal control of his clan from him.

* TheInfiltrator: When the Deimos party make it to Kharg's hometown, they decide to send a scout to gather information on a MacGuffin. Their candidate? Bebedora, as [[TheyLookLikeUsNow she can pass for Human]]. The townspeople are [[CreepyChild put off]], but never suspect anything.

''Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits'' is the fourth game in the ''VideoGame/ArcTheLad'' series. The narration begins with Kharg, a young man who happens to be descended from noble blood, training with his mentor, [[TheObiWan Lloyd.]] Everything is fine and happy, and we meet up with two other characters (his friend Paulette and a forest-dwelling child named Maru) before monsters called [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Deimos]] attack one of the nearby mines for their main source of power, Spirit Stones.
