Like many of the other "old-school" Seiken Densetsu games, ''Sword of Mana'' allows the player to choose whether to play as [[HelloInsertNameHere the hero or the heroine]]. Unlike other Seiken Densetsu games, though, there are significant differences depending on who you choose to play--the hero's route has slightly more focus on dungeon gameplay; in the heroine's story, the characters (particularly the villains) are MUCH more well-developed.

Also like many other "old-school" Seiken Densetsu games, ''Sword of Mana'''s story is wrought with angst, and a great many main characters die. Good luck not getting attached to any of them, though.

* EliteMooks: Kill 1000 of a specific enemy and the black version replaces them. This applies to ALL enemies. For example the standard Rabbite becomes a Black Rabbite. (Not the Seiken Dentetsu 3 version though) Said monsters also drop high end materials required for the best equipment.
