** Additionally, Florina's current guardian ([[spoiler: Alexandra]]) believes that her previous one ([[spoiler: Blackpearl]]) was willing to consign Florina to sacrificing her life force to produce healing tears, and carries a huge grudge because of that.

* LoveMakesYouEvil: Larc (sold his soul to be as strong as his sister), Alexandra (pushing the Jumi into extinction to save Florina from dying), Irwin (plotting world destruction to free Matilda from her duties), and Escad (''says'' he wants to kill Irwin because the latter is a demon, but comes off as wanting to MurderTheHypotenuse) all do what they do because of love.

On higher difficulties this will take forever. And if you're caught in the [[ActionBomb self destructing]] hand's attack (that fills the entire screen) [[GameOver start the entire fight over.]]

** Generally averted with the Heaven's Gate arc. Two of your allies WILL fight to the death, forcing you to pick a side (and attempting to stay neutral will have the ally with higher affinity with you turning on you). Then after you kill the AntiVillain of the arc, he is reunited with his love in death. However, even though she wants to stay with him, he decides hes tired of all the crap he went through and chooses to reincarnate with no memories of his past love. The whole affair is rather depressing really.
*** The manga has a much more upbeat ending. Daena and Escad do not fight to the death, and Irwin and Matilda become babies together, with Daena and Escad choosing to raise them.

** They even [[ShownTheirWork did the research]] on pro wrestling moves, some of the special moves with the glove are named after obscure wrestling moves. For example, one of them was called "Tiger Driver '91". Back before KentaKobashi started using his "Burning Hammer", the Tiger Driver '91 was the ultimate murderdeathkill pro wrestling finisher - although only [[SmartMark smarks]] knew about it.
