* DownerEnding: Probably the worst ending in ''Vandal Hearts II'' where [[spoiler:all of Joshua's childhood friends die, and he eventually ends up becoming a bitter and jaded man who founds a totalitarian empire that rules for 300 years before finally collapsing.]]

Two years later, ''Vandal Hearts II: Heaven's Gate'' was released and 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...

While the plot was larger and the background information available was greater, some felt the individual characters were less distinctive. Also, some fans and reviewers were put off by the new "second-guess" system, preferring the old system.



** The second was more pessimistic, as is the whole universe. Your mentor-like figure and politician ends up assassinated, and one of your party members disappears to WalkTheEarth. Others do get a more fitting end as your FunnyForeigner of a friend eventually leads the rebellion that freed his land, and the resident lecher ironically marries his SlapSlapKiss, controlling girlfriend.

[[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.

''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.
