* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Why was the North American [[UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 PS3]] version not released on a retail disc? Sony America doesn't allow retail discs without English voice acting.
** Oddly averted with with the prequel and sequel, which still has no English voice option, but did get disc releases.

** AgarestSenki2 also does this one ''in the [[HolyShitQuotient opening!]]'' According to the gameplay however, it was a bad idea to punch out [[spoiler: [[FinalBoss Summerill]] and [[TrueFinalBoss Chaos]]]].

* MetalSlime: Golden Bats. They typically have levels far higher than normal for the area you in, but have roughly the same health as the monsters you should be fighting, so if you can end the fight quickly you can see roughly a 600% or higher bonus to your rewards. However their Will Powers make it so they take significantly reduced damage from everything, they naturally resist magic, and once they hit 25% health physical attacks no longer work. Oh, and they [[RegeneratingHealth regenerate 20% of their health a turn]], can [[LifeDrain drain your health]], and can [[TheMedic easily fully heal all of the other enemies while they're at it.]] If the fight goes too long, expect to see a penalty on your rewards, rather than the standard reward you could've gotten had those GoddamnedBats just not been there.

!!Agarest Zero
Agarest Zero is the prequel of the first game and deals with Leonhardt's ancestor, Sieghart. Set one thousand years before the first game, the battle between the light and dark forces were still undergoing. Sieghart one day finds a woman named Mimel and he gets involved in the battle between light and dark.

Released in the US on June 14, 2011.

!!Record of
Agarest Zero is War Marriage

The newest Agarest game of Compile Heart, however this time they're teaming up with
the prequel former staff who worked on the SummonNight games. The artwork is now done instead by someone named "Blade" instead of the usual artwork by Hirano Katsuyuki.

The story goes that
the first generation protagonist will fail to kill the demon king so his three choices of wives will have to carry his soul to pass on to his descendants so that one day, they get to kill the demon king.

Tis
game and deals with Leonhardt's ancestor, Sieghart. Set one thousand years before is for the first game, UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable, a departure from the battle between usual platform for the light and dark forces were still undergoing. Sieghart one day finds a woman named Mimel and he gets involved in the battle between light and dark.

Released in the US on June 14, 2011.
series.



!!Agarest Zero contains the following tropes:
* BeachEpisode: As an event no less!
* BigEater: In one of the cutscenes, Leonis is implied to be one.
* CallingYourAttacks: Much like the first game, the characters call their 3rd EX skill.
** In one cutscene early in the 2nd generation, Tetora does this to Niel with her "Magnificent Descending Cumulus Fist!".
* [[EvilCounterpartRace Dark Counterpart Race]]: Shernini reveals to Leonis that the Syrium are this to High Elves, right down to their creators; [[CainAndAbel Lenion and Chaos]].
* ForegoneConclusion: [[spoiler: Vashtor becomes the servant of Summerill and will not join the good guys for 1000 years. The rest of the [[BlackKnight Gurgs]] get BrainwashedAndCrazy.]]
** Also, Leonis must survive. [[spoiler: Which makes the [[HeroicSacrifice normal ending]] non-canon by default.]]
* HotSpringsEpisode: Happens as an event, no less!
* NoFourthWall: While the game takes itself fairly seriously, the fourth wall is torn down for the post-game Boundary Plane events. For example;
--> Decimal: "Bu-kaw... (Translation: Ugh... What is the matter with me?"
--> Leonis: "Oh, I see someone has been kind enough to translate his comments for us."
--> Dana: "That seems rather miraculous as well..."
--> Shernini: "Only now, Decimal, do you understand! Oh, I shall never let you go!"
--> Decimal: "Buh...Buk... (Translation: [[MarshmallowHell Y-You are choking me, evil woman!]]"
** The scene goes on like that for awhile, ending with a FadeToBlack and Friedelinde telling everyone;
--> Friedelinde: "[[OnTheNext Tune in next week for the thrilling conclusion of "Decimal".]]"
* RunningGag: Sieghart dies in the prologue, just as how Leo died in the beginning of the game.
* SequelDifficultySpike: Don't be expecting the bosses to just sit around pounding one of your characters to death repeatedly [[CrueltyIsTheOnlyOption while you revive him to take another death to fuel your]] [[LimitBreak EX Skills]]. [[FlunkyBoss They have minions almost all the time now]], so they're going to be jumping around and ruining your day. If you kill the minions though, you've fueled the boss's own [[LimitBreak EX Skill]], so it's not even safe to go that route. Fortunately there's always [[StandardStatusEffects Sleep, Paralyze, Stun, and Bind]] to keep them under control.
** Nevermind that Sleep and Paralyze tend to only be if you have abilities that can use it, and those tend to be highly unreliable. While you may be able to get VERY reliable Stun and Bind on certain characters (Mimel and Tetora come to mind), there is a catch: It's on their second LimitBreak. That is to say, you need to not only get the SP for it, but plan around the very heavy pre-promotion AP expenditure.
* SexSells: Averted oddly, considering this is released by the guys who made the first game look like an over-the-top {{Fanservice}} game.
* ShamelessSelfPromoter: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xv0oMeeVnCI&feature=player_embedded Aksys Games']] response to the {{Catherine}} promo video.
* ShoutOut: [[VideoGame/BlazBlue MikeZ's infamous]] '''[[MemeticMutation REAL Soviet Damage!]]''' is one of the achievement/trophy names of this game.
** On that note, a number of achievement/trophy names are shout-outs. Among others, there's [[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi 'It's a Trap!']], [[AnchormanTheLegendOfRonBurgundy 'Stay Classy, Kraltarla']], [[VideoGame/BlazBlue 'Nirvana...?']] (earned for creating a marionette; it is worth mentioning that Aksys localized both Agarest and VideoGame/BlazBlue), [[ThreeHundred 'Fight in the Shade']], and [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar 'You're Already Dead!']].
** There's a smithing item called the [[Literature/HarryPotter Mirror of Erised]].
* SkinshipGrope: Mimel does this to Sayane during the HotSpringsEpisode.
* SpitefulAI: Hope you've stuck range-5 moves or gotten Alice up to level 25 by mid-late generation 1. Otherwise you'll be stuck chasing enemies around that run away for the sole sake of lowering your combat rating, in turn reducing the amount of EXP, money, EP, and TP gained.
* StoryBranchFavoritism: The game clearly pushes Sieghart and Linda together as the OfficialCouple, with her being the only bride with unavoidable plot-related {{ShipTease}}s with him and the two other Leonis' clearly being poorly recolored versions of the Linda-mothered one.
* WakeUpCallBoss: Leptocephalus and its henchmen of Fire Spirits will cause players to grow frustrated unless they either do some LevelGrinding or buying the DLC items.
* WhamEpisode: [[ForegoneConclusion You knew it was coming]] but not how; [[spoiler: Giganda reveals himself to be the first of the Gurg, and had done so [[EvilAllAlong entirely willingly]], Ernesto is actually [[BigBadFriend Summerill]], Vashtor becomes a Gurg after [[ResistanceIsFutile putting up a bit of resistance]], as does Arzest. The three Gurg decimate their former allies before Vashtor and Leonis [[CurbStompBattle duel]], leaving Leonis in a coma for days expecting that he would've died.]]
* [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse What Happened to the Dark Elves?]] The first game had stated that the Dark Elves served Summerill, and yet they're nowhere to be seen and never mentioned. This makes TheReveal about what the Syrium are all the more irritating, as it seemed like that was going to be the Dark Elves' thing.
* YouDontLookLikeYou: Some of the 3D enemies have had their models replaced. Most noticeable with with the Jumbo Cock, who is no longer a giant chicken but rather a Griffon thus ruining the joke, and Tyrant type enemies going from massive armored enemies to using the model for spirits from ''{{Neptunia}}''. This is not only present in Zero's battles, but the battles in the game's abridged version of the first game as well.

!!Agarest Senki 2
AgarestSenki2 (also known as RecordOfAgarestWar2) is a sequel to the original game. It is set in a parallel world opposite the Agarest World of the first game. The story follow a man named Weiss who has an amnesia after he killed a god. He then encounters a woman named Eva who tells him that it was a bad idea, and that he now has to revive them with him and three women as a catalyst. The game then follows him and his descendants trying to revive said gods while finding out who [[QuestForIdentity Weiss really was.]]

Developed by IdeaFactory and CompileHeart, this game was released in Japan on November 18, 2010 for the {{PS3}} console. Gameplay-wise, it looks very similar to ''VideoGame/CrossEdge'' except that it is now easier to play this game rather than a GuideDangIt battle system.

North America and Europe got it in summer 2012.

-----
!!Agarest Senki 2 contains the following tropes:
* AbsoluteCleavage: Eva, and Victoria.
* AbusiveParents: [[spoiler: Danaos]], we're looking at you.
* ActionGirl: Par for the course.
* AdventureGuild: What you will be visiting a few times if you want to advance the plot.
* AerithAndBob: On one hand, you have some normal names like Fiona, Eva, Victoria, and Jainus to name a few. On the other hand, you also get names like Li Ra-Lua , Felenne, and Lizerotte.
* AmbidextrousSprite: Uh yup, definitely present in battle animations. Gets more jarring when Georg's scar is located on his left eye, instead of the usual.
* AmnesiacGod: [[spoiler: Chaos.]]
* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: For a brief while when [[spoiler: Grey's]] not in your party, you can have Jude be the guy walking on the map.
* AntiVillain: [[spoiler: Chaos, he even has to remind the heroes that he is the God of Darkness.]]
* ArtisticLicenseBiology: In cutscenes, you see characters talking while they're breathing heavily. Talking in real life does not work that way.
* AnAxeToGrind: The [[EliteMook garvels]] wield axes in this game
* BadassCrew: Your party members, who are pretty famous for clearing out demons [[spoiler: and in the end, defeat ''eight gods'' (well, it's the usual six, but Mobius had [[GrandTheftMe other plans]] and Chaos gave Mobius a taste of his own medicine in return)]].
* BadassCreed: Anytime you use the [[LimitBreak Original Skills]] of your characters. Even [[CombinationAttack Finish Strikes]] have these though some of them have the party members banter with each other.
* TheBadGuyWins:[[spoiler: If you got the Bad Ending.]]
* BetaCouple: That would have to be Janus and Chloe, and Ignis and Cynthia. Both of them do also have one child who travels with you (Jude and Lizerotte respectively).
* {{BFG}}: Jude's gun is a little bit longer than he is. And then there's Janus' Arc Cluster [[LimitBreak Original Skill]].
* {{BFS}}: You can equip the swordsmen with this, though Georg plays this one straight.
* BigBad: [[spoiler: Mobius, doubles as a BigBadFriend seeing as he's Fasti in human form.]]
* BlackKnight: [[spoiler: The Gurgs are back in this game.]] Unfortunately, they also got DemotedToExtra.
* BladeOnAStick: Victoria in the first generation, Silvi in the 2nd, and Lizerotte in the third.
* BossRush: [[spoiler: The TrueFinalBoss fights. First is Normal Chaos, then it's Mobius possessing Chaos, and finally Chaos getting his body back sporting new threads. You don't get to heal in-between battles.]]
* BottomlessMagazines: Jude, and Vanessa will never reload in this game at all. Curiously enough, Janus actually reloads his gun implying that he can run out of bullets.
* BrotherSisterIncest: The protectors tradition to preserve their pure blood. For examples are: [[spoiler: Weiss and Rena]], Yumil and Rasta, [[spoiler: Ignis and Sophia, Seraphina and her brother]].[[spoiler: None of them ends well.]]
* TheCameo: Leonhardt, Ellis, Valeria from the first game, and Meu from ''VideoGame/SpectralSouls'' are in this game. Doubles as ContinuityCameo and ContestWinnerCameo.
* CaptainErsatz: Jaonus is pretty much Winfield 2.0 except that he's a normal human being who ages quite noticeably, and has a son named Jude. [[spoiler: And in the second generation finale, he gets cursed by an evil ring which makes him ageless like Winfield.]]
* CensorSteam: The HotSpringsEpisode won't be complete with this one. Justified seeing as this game is rated to the equivalent of Teen in the US.
* {{Combos}}: Since this game has almost the same gameplay as ''VideoGame/CrossEdge'', this was inevitable.
** CombinationAttack: The bread and butter of the gameplay itself.
* ColorfulThemeNaming: Weiss (white), Schwartz (black), Grey.
* CurbStompBattle: Oh [[VillainDecay Summerill]], you never stood a chance. [[spoiler: And then [[TookALevelInBadass he grinded again his levels]] and becomes the generation 3 final boss (by technicality, without the route split.)]]
* DancingTheme: One of the first few trailers of this game has Fiona and Eva pull off an [[VideoGame/TheIdolmaster Idolmaster]]. And yes, you can obtain said trailer in the game itself.
* DarkerAndEdgier: In comparison to the first game.
* DevilButNoGod: [[spoiler: Thankfully our SatanIsGood.]]
* DiscOneNuke: The OldSaveBonus you get for playing Agarest Zero gives you 10,000 TP, one million gold, and 1,000 PP. You can then use it to exchange for the TP weapons at the Righteous Beheading dojo and upgrade it all the way to the max because you have the orichalcums. Generation 1 becomes a lot easier after that.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: This, apparently was a bad idea however. [[spoiler: Subverted in the most twisted manner possible.]] [[spoiler: ''Then plays it straight in the True Ending.'']]
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yL5zs_BHj74 Let's]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMqz_jbbcPs just]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6keSPfbXF4U say]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgyJU_ej9Y4 they]] took this trope in ''Agarest Senki'' and bumped it UpToEleven and leave it at that.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: If you think all the women [[spoiler: beating up on Jainus and Jude is funny whenever they peep at the hot springs]], then it is this trope.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Even more than before. Unlocking the true route is ''really'' hard, requiring not only having almost maxed out the RelationshipValues, but checking a lot of events. But even after that, what comes after the route split is worth all the trouble.
* {{Expy}}: Most of the playable characters can be possible expies from the first game:
** Weiss is Leo, Grey is Ladius minus the emotion, Janus is CaptainErsatz of Winfield, Ignis can be Zerva, Eva is Dyshana, Fiona is Ellis 2.0, Victoria is pretty much Elaine, Vanessa is both Hilda and Murmina, Yumil almost has the same storyline as Silvi, and Schwartz is pre-CharacterDevelopment Duran taken UpToEleven.
*** Whoa, whoa, now don't tell me I'm the only one that see [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud]] in Weiss, right?
** Faz looks eerily similar to [[ValkyrieProfile Lezard]] for some weird reason. [[spoiler: And it shows.]]
* {{Fanservice}}: IdeaFactory and CompileHeart seem to have gotten the memo from {{Aksys}}.
** FanservicePack: Welcome to the VideoGame/AgarestSenki2 bike shop where we have all your wants and needs. We guarantee you that the seat will ''always be warm.''
* FetchQuest: Present in this game from find x number of items to kill x amount of monsters to collect items. Doing these will net you money, and also items from the [=NPCs=] that you helped out. A large part of the second generation story is pretty much a gigantic FetchQuest in that you have to collect items so that you can save Rasta, Yumil's brother.
* FlechetteStorm: The level 3 final animation of [[CombinationAttack Thousand Kill]].
* ForcedTutorial: There should be no reason why the hell Weiss needs a tutorial when he kills the WarmUpBoss because ''he's already level 99!'' He should already know the basics on how to fight!
** GameplayGuidedAmnesia: After you get tossed to who-knows-where and having an amnesia, the rest of the party give you a tutorial. [[spoiler: There's a good reason for that.]]
* {{Gainaxing}}: Oh boy. Notable for the fact that even just a simple sentence, somehow the women must move their avatars just so they can get their point across complete with {{Gainaxing}}.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Despite the fact that there are implied torture, EroticEating, HotSpringsEpisode, [[spoiler: murder by BackStab ''on screen'' (though there's no blood)]], and almost full-blown stuff that happens in here [[spoiler: (Eva's CG comes to mind)]], it's still [[http://www.siliconera.com/2012/04/23/record-of-agarest-war-2-as-described-by-the-esrb/ Rated T by the ESRB.]] And Aksys one ups it by having the limited edition [[http://www.siliconera.com/2012/04/23/record-of-agarest-war-2-as-described-by-the-esrb/ come with a]] ''blow-up doll''. [[note]]For the record, the Japanese limited edition just came at ''worst'', a handkerchief that had a naked Eva and Fiona young and adult.[[/note]]
* GrandTheftMe: Happens ''thrice'' in this game. [[spoiler: First was Chaos' consciousness fully awakening inside Grey's body. If you get the True Ending, then Mobius suddenly possesses Chaos' body, and after a few minutes (read as one boss battle), the third one happens when Chaos gets his body back from Mobius, sporting new threads.]]
* GuideDangIt: This is CompileHeart we're talking here. We would not have it any other way.
* HandsomeLech: The father-son duo, Janus and Jude. Being the [[{{Expy}} expies]] of both Winfield and Thoma will turn anyone into this trope.
* TheHero: Weiss, and his descendants as usual.
* HotSpringsEpisode: This is Agarest we're talking about.
** Special mention for the final one that has every heroine from all generations.
* IdleAnimation: Some enemies will do a particular action if you're just going to let them stand still. One good example is a pixie [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKtnvrk4bbQ&feature=related eating an apple.]]
* IdolSinger: Both Fiona and Eva become one at Flens Berge. Remember that gag trailer where they pulled off an Idolmaster? That's the same thing they do in-game. Though why Eva participated on it when she's still TheStoic at this point is anyone's guess.
* ImplausibleFencingPowers: How Weiss was able to handle that sword in the prologue.
* ImpossibleThief: Janus has the same problem as York from ''[[VideoGame/CrossEdge X Edge]]'', but Melvina takes this trope UpToEleven by stealing from her enemies using ''thunder''.
* InterspeciesRomance: Present in this game as well.
* {{Jerkass}}: Schwartz is pretty much pre-CharacterDevelopment Duran. Same with Eva, and watch as they argue with their ideals a lot.
* KickTheDog: Danaos pretty much chains Melvina to the floor, [[AbusiveParents kick her]], and just be a {{Jerkass}} to her.
* KilledOffForReal: As always the protagonist and heroines of non-last generations falls victim to this trope. [[spoiler: But no one ever thought that Janus is going to die too.]]
** DeathIsCheap: And then [[spoiler: brought back for one last showdown against chaos with every generation]]
* KillEmAll: What happened with the Sera clan at the Zaint Luke continent. [[spoiler: This includes Real!Weiss aka the Weiss that you controlled in the prologue.]]
* KnifeNut: All three protagonists, but Schwartz plays this one straight whereas the other two transform theirs into a LaserBlade.
* LaserBlade: Weiss and Grey's dagger whenever they do their [[LimitBreak Original Skills]] turn into a ''lightsaber''.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Weiss has no memory of what events have transpired prior to him meeting Aina.
* LateArrivalSpoiler: It's hard to tell anyone else about this game without spoiling the opening where Weiss [[spoiler: kills Summerill and Chaos who are the FinalBoss and the TrueFinalBoss of the first game respectively]].
** Hope you also read a lot about the profile of the characters in the first game, [[spoiler: particularly Chaos' entry.]]
* LazyBackup: Despite the fact that you can switch party members, if all four main party members die on the battlefield, it's a game over even though you have a lot of characters to choose from.
* LeakedExperience
* LikeFatherLikeSon: Jude in regards to Janus. From his personal choice of equipment, to his tendencies to peek at the hot springs. Of course, the similarities end there.
* LimitedWardrobe: Definitely applies to the guys. For the girls, well it also does apply unless you bought the DLC costumes, in which you can switch their costumes.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading: Not as bad as other examples, but it's still there unfortunately. Compile Heart has not released an "Install" option to be able to play this game faster either.
* LouisCypher: [[spoiler: The main characters]]. Although role wise, [[spoiler: Faz/Mobius]] plays this trope perfectly. See {{Expy}} up above.
* LoveConfession: Present in this game as well. [[ThereCanOnlyBeOne You can only choose one girl.]]
* LoveHurts: According to the prologue, the entire war started because of two people who love each other but could never be together. [[spoiler: This is a plot point too.]]
* MaliciousMisnaming: Before Ignis calls Cynthia by her name, he usually refers to her as ''[[JapanesePronouns kisama]]''. She usually would retaliate as "''Kisama'' ja nai, Cynthia desu!"
* [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Mad Man's Hot Daughter]]: [[spoiler: Mervina is this in a nutshell. Complete with betraying Danaos.]]
* MasterSwordsman: Georg and Mervina. Their [[CombinationAttack Finish Strike]] is even called Blade Arts.
* MrFanservice: For some weird reason, the males in this game are ''ripped.''
* MontyHaul: DLC is back in this game of course. While they're still powerful, they're not as godly powerful as AgarestSenki due to the fact that enhancing items in this game now also take up items instead of just paying Gordon the blacksmith EP.
* MoodWhiplash: In the first few minutes, you kill a lesser god, and a god. You then get blown somewhere far away and then someone narrates the prologue. Finally, an upbeat DancingTheme plays in your screen.
* MyRulesAreNotYourRules: Sure you and your enemies get EX Skills (and while enemies get a lot more, most of the time they're useless unless it's from a boss fight), have the same restriction on what attacks you can use, but somehow enemies can perform combination attacks ''without needing a secondary character'' and use EX Skills you can use ''without needing to trigger the preconditions'' (like using Desperate Strength at full HP when the trigger requires that you need to be below 33% HP to activate said EX Skill). [[GoodBadBugs Of course, this gets inverted when they're restricted to cast their]] [[LimitBreak Original Skills]]; if they activated their Original Skill and your party survives it, the enemy AI can't cast it again for some reason and would likely be building up a lot of UP orbs without using any. You, however can cast your Original Skills with no restrictions.
* MythologyGag: [[InvertedTrope Inverted this time.]] Weiss kills the WarmupBoss at level 99. The level of the Black Knight who kills Leo is also level 99.
* {{Nerf}}: The Unleash All/Rile EX Skills. Unlike the first two games where you could simply just revive a dead character who will automatically go in this state, in this game you need to be at 20% HP instead of the usual 25%. Good luck doing that on later bosses.
* NewGamePlus: And what gets carried over depends on the difficulty at which you beat the game.
* NonActionGuy: Fasti/Faz [[spoiler: Subverted.]]
* OffModel: In ''Luminous Prima III'', when Fiona opens her mouth in the beginning part of the song, her mouth seems to be wider than usual.
* OldSaveBonus: If you have a finished Videogame/AgarestSenkiZERO save, you can use this to import some items to this game.
* OutOfFocus: Weiss...is very transparent in the first generation, heck Janus seems to have even more role than him. Ironically, he gets much bigger role in the True ending route as a SupportingLeader for the party.
* [[RegionalBonus PAL Bonus]]: The limited edition of the US version of this game came with just the Felenne blow-up doll, the game, and one mini-comic from Aksys. The European version? Let's see, a bag, a cap, the soundtrack, the visual art book, a poster, 6 mini posters, the game itself, ''and a free copy of'' ''[[VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga Digital Devil Saga 2 with its OST]]'' (it's to compensate for the lack of letting Fiona as a child to go to the bath minigame, but considering said compensation is a ''full game'', well...)
* PantyShot: Compile Heart could not [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmcuO-YozS0 resist the urge anymore]] with this DancingTheme.
* PlotHole: If Summerill is sealed under a goddamn volcano, then how the hell did he appeared at Zendrook pillar?
** [[WildMassGuessing Maybe he just guarded Zendrook pillar for a very long time until Weiss killed him, and sent him back to the volcano?]]
* RankInflation: As usual, the highest is S, and the [[FMinusMinus lowest goes as low as you want.]]
* RelationshipValues: Present in the game as well. The higher the relationship value, the stronger the next generation protagonist will be.
* RescueRomance: The final scene before you finally make Ignis and Cynthia be close to each other is [[spoiler: to rescue her from demons at Enhambre.]] The other men in the party even poke fun of him for that.
* TheReveal: Oh boy, [[spoiler: Weiss is not the one who killed Chaos, it's Faz]]. [[spoiler: And while we're at it, Weiss or to be more precisely the real Weiss is DeadAllAlong, all of the main characters are actually Chaos in different bodies.]]
* [[spoiler: SatanIsGood]]
* SelectiveObliviousness: The flashbacks have a lot of fun with this, like remember that blood on the screen? [[spoiler: It's not Chaos's it's Weiss's blood.]]
* ShoutOut
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DifdsASUlh0 Ignis' 2nd EX Skill looks]] like [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam a certain Gundam attack.]]
** The final animation of Annihilate Circle really looks like [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGaiden Cybuster's Akashic Buster.]]
** A lot of the trophy descriptions are these in the US version. Some of them include [[Literature/LifeTheUniverseAndEverything Agrajag]], [[VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead Operation Overkill]], HesDeadJim, [[JurassicPark Ian Malcolm]], and VideoGame/CorpseParty.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Even though one of the first few official trailers has Eva's name in English language, some still refer to her as Iva for some weird reason.
* SpoilerOpening / {{Foreshadowing}}: During the opening, you see Weiss holding a sword with someone ominous at the background who is pretty much Chaos. At first since Weiss kills Chaos, you get to assume that it is a set up for an epic rivalry between Chaos and Weiss himself. [[spoiler: Then you get to TheReveal.]]
** Another nice piece of {{Foreshadowing}} would be the 2nd generation HotSpringsEpisode. You'd think this was just a little ShoutOut to Ladius having a deja vu that Winfield will get beaten up for peeping on the girls even though Ladius never saw it. In Schwartz's case however, [[spoiler: he ''has'' seen the outcome already because Weiss, Schwartz, and Grey ''are Chaos''.]]
* SwordOfPlotAdvancement: The significance of Veldafard is pretty big in this story? Do you get the sword itself just like how you got Leo's Sword/Treasure Sword of Oath in AgarestSenki if you can obtain the True End? Nope, off to ItemCrafting for you.
* ATasteOfPower: Weiss kills the WarmUpBoss at level 99 with his InfinityPlusOneSword. He loses his level, but strangely enough, his sword is still with him albeit [[GameplayAndStorySegregation in cutscenes only.]] [[spoiler: Then the game gives you the most awesome reason ever as to ''why.'']]
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Aside from the fact that overkilling will give you items, this game takes it UpToEleven with an Ultimate Strike where your selected party (enemy must be in "Break" state, and you choose whether you attack an enemy with everyone or with just a certain number of people) will attack the enemy with all they've got, and finish them off with a FinishingMove [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXJq7akpeYc where two or more people will do their EX Combo provided there's one.]]
* ThunderEqualsDownpour: At the start of the game no less.
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: Remember the gag trailer where they're showing off the exclusive CGs of each heroine, and that there's a brief shot of one hotspring? [[spoiler: You can only get that particular CG at the credits.]]
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler: You and your party members as soon as Chaos reappears out from Grey. At that point, the ones who are steering the plot are Mobius and Chaos and your party members are just dragged along for the ride.]]
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Attacking a fairy. She'll keep apologising until she's either dead or the combo stops.
** That cruelty feeling may be lessened when you get attacked by her, since she'll be taunting and laughing at her victim while she mercilessly try to kill your team. Most of the voiced monsters will act mostly the same, asking for forgiveness, or begging to stop your attack, only to viciously laugh at the wounds they inflict on you.
* TheVoiceless: Averted; ''everyone gets voiced'' in this game. Including the blacksmith, the item store owner, the guild attendant, and the fortune teller.
* WeHelpTheHelpless: The party is after all, a group of HiredGuns helping the various [=NPCs=] of Flens Berge.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Exactly what happened to Chloe after [[spoiler: Janus died]]? Or Cynthia after marrying Ignis? Both women (except Chloe for one scene only) never appeared to the party in the third generation.
* WhamEpisode: Happens ''successively'' with a one hour cutscene! [[note]]Unless you use the skip button by pressing square in cutscenes. Oh, we hope you have some back up party members, and hope you saved with a different file because you can't heal in between battles here nor change any equipment.[[/note]] Starting from [[spoiler: Janus' HeroicSacrifice]] to [[spoiler: Fasti making a [[TheReveal HUGE Reveal]], and Sophia being ThatOneBoss fight just because she can't trust Chaos (pulling off a GrandTheftMe on Grey)]]
* XanatosSpeedChess: [[spoiler: The final moments of the game are pretty much Chaos and Mobius going back and forth with their plans with the party members dragged along for the ride.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Let's see, we've got violet, aqua blue, pink, red, gray-ish violet, green, and dark blue just to name a few.
* YouLoseAtZeroTrust: If your love rate with the girl in Agarest Senki 2 is low, your character will force himself on her to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUR5IA9RfGQ&feature=related have a kid]] as part of the sacrifice.

!!Record of Agarest War Marriage

The newest Agarest game of Compile Heart, however this time they're teaming up with the former staff who worked on the SummonNight games. The artwork is now done instead by someone named "Blade" instead of the usual artwork by Hirano Katsuyuki.

The story goes that the first generation protagonist will fail to kill the demon king so his three choices of wives will have to carry his soul to pass on to his descendants so that one day, they get to kill the demon king.

Tis game is for the UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable, a departure from the usual platform for the series.
