* {{Expy}}: Long white hair, black outfit, big sword, occasional penchant for MindRape, being involved in burning towns, [[spoiler:being possessed by another evil entity, being responsible for stabbing a girl to death]]... Are we talking about Victor Delacroix or [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]]?

** Inverted with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kF9u2vZjO5A the final boss theme,]] which is rearranged as [[LonelyPianoPiece a piano composition]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lthz8geNUcA#t=56s for the ending of the PC version.]] While this is a poignant take on [[OneWomanWail an already somber piece of music]] as opposed to the more hopeful "FLY," the choice of music manages to remain apt for different reasons, seeing as [[spoiler:it's Siela's theme]] and the ending deals with [[spoiler:Siela encouraging Sieg to move on with his life]].

Now, in the present day, Sieg is in hot pursuit of Delacroix, who plans to gather the seals that hold back Azrail in order to rtruelease it, which he thinks will reunite him with Siela. Sieg will not have it easy--Delacroix has summoned many hordes of demons who want nothing more than to kill Sieg. However, Sieg is a "Knight of the Dark Glyphs" and a "Legionator." A Legionator is one who has the ability to summon "legions," powerful and massive creatures (legionnaires) that will fight alongside their caller, defending and attacking when commanded to do so. Armed with a sword and his legions, Sieg is more than ready to discover the truth.

* EvilFormerFriend: Delacroix to Sieg. Interestingly, Delacroix's words and tone toward Sieg suggest he sees Sieg as this to him, both for killing Siela and [[spoiler:being a Legionator]].

* MindOverMatter: Upon running into Delacroix in the ruins of Murdoa, Arcia, [[AndThisIsFor after declaring vengeance for her murdered brother]], finds that her bullets are ineffective. Not only does Delacroix halt her rounds when they're mere centimeters away from entering his skull, but he then proceeds to painlessly remove the two bullets Arcia lodged in his chest when [[BigDamnHeroes saving Sieg from Delacroix's magical assault]].

* MysticalWhiteHair: Delacroix is a MagicKnight like Sieg, but in possession of abilities that puts most of his old buddy's stable of legions to shame.



* PoweredByAForsakenChild: [[spoiler:Legions are created by sacrificing wandering human souls. This is one of the many reasons why Delacroix hates Sieg's guts, as well as The Order of St. Overia, which covered up the truth by forbidding anyone from reading the Apocrypha.]]

Fortunately, a Perfect Thanatos will make mincemeat of the first two battles and the third one will be the real challenge.

* WrestlerInAllOfUs: The Hatred legion. It also has an ability to catch an enemy's attack before putting a size-appropriate hurt on them: smaller foes tend to be knocked over and mashed into the ground, while some of the few enemies larger than them usually get a single (but ''painful'') slam. They also like giving [[BringIt a "Come get some" style taunt]] after being ordered to attack.

* MultiMookMelee: Nearly every level is bound to feature this in spades, with the second half of the game positively crawling with monsters. Some encounters are bypassable, many more are not, several include the aforementioned Monster Generators, and one instance (a ''six''-wave horde of zombies at The Forbidden City of Yzarc - "Core") replaces the original boss fight (Delacroix) once the "Another World" version of the stages are unlocked following Stage 12. It's required if you want obtain one of the final two Thanatos Chips, making it a worthy investment (and a necessary evil).
