[[SequelGap After almost 11 years of silence]], ''Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgment'' was released in January 2010 as a downloadable title on the PlaystationNetwork and XboxLiveArcade. Being a {{Prequel}} to the first game, it returned to the world of Ishtaria and ditched the Dual Turn system, brought back the first game's varied mission objectives, and introduced a somewhat [[Franchise/TheElderScrolls Elder Scrolls]]-like character advancement system, where characters' stats improved automatically based on their actions. The story follows a young priest named Tobias Martin as he battles a WellIntentionedExtremist for the fate of his country.

Two years later, a sequel was released. ''Vandal Hearts II: Heaven's Gate'' was a huge [[DarkerAndEdgier shift in tone]], both in terms of plot and gameplay. Featuring a completely different world and an entire new cast of characters, it takes place in the kingdom of Natra, which is in the middle of a SuccessionCrisis that threatens to explode into a full-on CivilWar. Our hero, Joshua ([[HelloInsertNameHere in the manual anyway]]), is a young boy in a small village. One day, the village takes in a weary traveler named Nicola... who turns out to have grand plans for Natra...

''Vandal Hearts'' is a series of tactical [=RPGs=] released by {{Creator/Konami}}. Three games have been released in the series so far, the most recent one being a prequel to the first.

The first game follows the story of Ash Lambert, an imperial soldier. The second switches to a Natran bandit named Joshua caught in the middle of a civil war. Both stories involve the same SwordOfPlotAdvancement, the titular "Vandal Hearts", and its influence on the outcome of the wars, but they have little to do with each other.

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Kane is a CardCarryingVillain who likes people who's just as evil as he is. However, even he loves his father and wholeheartedly support his quest for peace through dominance, even if he's a little bloodthirsty about it. He even ruined a perfectly set ambush when he heard that his father just died.

* TrueCompanions: A villainous version is the Crimson Guards in ''I'', which Kane is a member of. Kane is a highly antagonistic asshole, but he really values the camaraderie between him and these friends: Sabina, Dallas, Kurtz and Lando. In fact, when the team ambushes Ash's team in the first chapter of the fourth act, Kane had to be the one reminding them that Ash's team just killed Lando in the last act and they must exact revenge. Likewise, during his LastStand, before going back to antagonize Ash, Kane actually prays for his fallen friends and father to give him the strength to prevail.

* MasterOfAll: Ash starts out as a very competent and useful JackOfAllStats and MagicKnight, and becomes this trope in spades if [[GuideDangIt you manage to]] unlock his [[GameBreaker gamebreaking]], PurposefullyOverpowered Vandalier class, which is a LightningBruiser that can cast every spell in the game ''and'' use any consumable item in the game from his spell list for free.

* MilitaryMage: Clerics act as TheMedic and Mages as artillery, and the latter are [[TacticalRockPaperScissors particularly useful]] against Armor units, which have incredibly strong physical defenses but [[MagicallyIneptFighter are vulnerable to magical attacks]]. Monks, a subclass that can be accessed by both Clerics and Mages, are {{Magic Knight}}s and [[JackOfAllStats Jacks of All Stats]] with excellent movement speed, decent physical attack and defense, and [[RedMage enough skill with both magical offense and magical healing]] to be used as either TheMedic or an offensive mage in a pinch.
