That surname is fanon only, on top of being a spoiler.
''Phantasy Star II'' takes place a [[ViciousCycle thousand years]] after the original ''Phantasy Star'', and in the intervening centuries the people of the Algo(l) system mastered {{terraform}}ing, using complex control systems to transform Mota(via), the original game's [[SingleBiomePlanet desert planet]], into their breadbasket. But the normally automated control systems are starting to go haywire. Our protagonist, Rolf Landale, a government agent (and descendant of ''PS1'' heroine Alis, as it happens,) is sent to investigate. Accompanied by his [[MysteriousWaif mysterious]] friend Nei, they find themselves caught up in a plot to destroy the entire solar system. They stop the plot, but not without great losses.

* StupidityIsTheOnlyOption: Early on you need to get past a character named Duram, who is blocking a tunnel and robbing anyone who tries to pass in order to pay the ransom for his daughter Teim, who has been kidnapped by bandits. After resucing Tiem, you go to confront Duram, but instead of simply showing him his daughter is safe so he will no longer have a reason to rob anyone or block the path, Tiem suddenly walks up to him in disguise and refuses to comply with his robbery demands. Duram ends up killing Teim, and then blows himself up when he realizes he murdered his daughter. The final result is the tunnel is no longer blocked, but also two needless deaths that could have been easily avoided with a few sentences of dialog.

* {{Stripperiffic}}: Nei's "battle teddy." In the Japanese box art, it shows a visible camel toe, even ''viewed from the side''.

''PhantasyStarII: The End of the Lost Age'' is the second game in {{Sega}}'s long-running ''PhantasyStar'' series of science fiction/fantasy {{Eastern RPG}}s. This is the first entry in the series released for the SegaGenesis, and it is widely considered the [[NintendoHard most difficult]]. It was also hailed as the best RPG on the system, only unseated by ''PhantasyStarIV'' five years down the line.

* CrapsaccharineWorld: Ah, Motavia. Once a dangerous desert planet crawling with monstrous antlions: now, an idyllic, lush, bountiful world where the average citizen doesn't even have to work for a living...just so long as they stay on Mother Brain's good side. [[spoiler:This was intentional on the part of the [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters Earthlings]] who created Mother Brain and dropped her on Motavia: if the populace was too docile and weak, conquest of the planet would be a trivial matter.]]

* DeadCharacterWalking: During the true battle with Neifirst, Nei begins the fight already dead. If you revive her with an item, and then win the fight with only Nei alive, a surreal sequence of cutscenes plays where "Nei calls Nei's name", Nei dies her PlotlineDeath, and ''nobody'' walks back to the clone labs to revive everyone.

* InfinityPlusOneSword / ArmorOfInvincibility: The Nei equipment. Often it's very clear who should be given what (only Rolf can equip the Neisword; only Rudo can equip the Neishot; and so on), but a few pieces of armor can be used by multiple characters. The Nei weapons would return in ''PSIII''.
