And fifth and probably the most important aspect of the game, since war is a major part of the storyline, ''Mistumete Knight'' has a radically different mood compared to the TastesLikeDiabetes setting of ''TokimekiMemorial''. Indeed, this setting is a CrapsaccharineWorld, with Dolphan Kingdom ruled by xenophobic [[AristocratsAreEvil evil nobles]] who abide by the ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney and WeHaveReserves mottos; war is depicted as gloomy and [[WhatASenselessWasteOfHumanLife a waste of human lives]], '''and AnyoneCanDie'''. Yes, such an unusual thing for a DatingSim, and this is one of the game's biggest strengths: [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential depending on the player's choices]], down to the type of blood you choose at the beginning of the game, several girls and main characters can die.

The girls' storylines are often rich and story-driven, with regular BreakTheCutie and TearJerker moments, very much unlike Tokimemo; yet, despite all this, the game also has lots of [[CrowningMomentOfFunny funny]] and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming romantic]] moments. [[CharacterDevelopment The characters have developed and complex personalities]], and have a lot more interaction between them than in most ''Tokimeki Memorial'' games.

For the note, ''Mitsumete Knight'' was followed by '''''Mitsumete Knight R : Daibouken Hen''''', an AlternateUniverse RPG game which bears more similarities with ''SakuraTaisen'' than with ''TokimekiMemorial'', where you play as a Captain leading a [[FiveManBand Five Girl Band]] in a quest for a MacGuffin which would cure the King. During the quest, you'll be able to try and win the heart of one of the 5 heroines.

* NotNamedInOpeningCredits: The names of the Eight Generals' seiyuu are not displayed in the second version of the game's opening, unlike in the first version which presents the heroines.

* [[HiredGuns Hired Swords]]: Both sides on the war make extensive use of mercenaries to complement their respective regular armies. At Procchia's side is Valpha-Valaharian, known and feared as the strongest mercenary brigade of all the continent ; at Dolphan's side, a bunch of foreign mercenaries recruited en masse, the Asian (the player avatar) being one of them.

* NamesToKnowInAnime: Unlike ''Tokimeki Memorial 1'' which used unknown or starting voice actors for money saving purposes (as it was a low-profile game until it got its sudden and spectacular success), ''Mitsumete Knight'', then aimed to become the next Tokimemo-like CashCowFranchise ([[OvershadowedByAwesome and in the end failed to become such]]), got [[AllStarCast a royal cast]] :
** Creator/YumiTouma as Raizze Haimer and Luna Angelis,
** Creator/MarikoKouda as Anne,

** Creator/JunkoIwao as Lesley Lopicana,

** Creator/TakeshiAono as Meehilbis of the Ghosts,
** Creator/NobutoshiCanna as Necselaria of the Gale,
** Creator/HideoIshikawa as Johan Elites.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast / RedBaron: All eight Generals of Valpha-Valaharian have {{Badass}} and intimidating nicknames. Special mention goes to Wolfgario "The Ravager", leader of the Generals, and Zeelbis "The Bloody".

Second, while the dating part of the game is basically the same as in ''TokimekiMemorial'' (meet girls, date them, please them, see special events and fight off rumors), ''Mitsumete Knight'' was the precursor of the future ''Tokimeki Memorial'' games (as it was released between ''Tokimemo 1'' and ''Tokimemo 2'') for an easier management of the girls, introducing several prototype ideas, the most notable being the replacement of the bombing system for a much-easier-to-deal-with Uneasiness Gauge and a MUCH lower frequency of rumor spreading. These ideas favour a more girl storyline specific challenge, a type of challenge ''Tokimeki Memorial 2'' would focus on with great success.
