For millennia, a being called the "Raigan" has been kept in suspended animation--waiting for the appointed time at which he will gather the legendary four artifacts to bring about the Great Union and dawn to the people of the world known as Andel. But what exactly does the Great Union entail? No one seems to know, even the Raigan himself. What is it he is working towards? Exactly who benefits from the completion of the Great Union? And what, if anything, does any of this have to do with a far-away place called Lennus, and its heroes Chezni and Midia...?

Lennus II is the sequel to ''Lennus''--better known overseas as PaladinsQuest--which, despite being popular in Japan, was not received very well elsewhere. Like many other late SNES-era [=RPGs=], it was [[NoExportForYou never localized]] despite doing well in its own country. Thanks to the power of FanTranslation, however, English-speakers can now enjoy the game for themselves via emulation.

!! Tropes featured in this game include:

* ActionGirl: Nikita--a professional stripper--is an aspiring Action Girl who begs you to let her join the party. If you dismiss her, she'll be furious at you for taking away her chance to fight.
* AllInARow: Every mercenary you recruit follows Farus' lead. In an interesting twist, the monsters in one of the dungeons do this as well. When the next battle occurs, the aforementioned enemies add themselves to the encounter (they can also flee, meaning they'll follow you behind once the battle is over). Once five of them are present in the same battle, they transform into the [[BossInMookClothing Combiner]] enemy.
* AlwaysCheckBehindTheChair: There are some really useful stats increasing items and gold hidden in shelves throughout the game.
* ArbitraryHeadcountLimit: Four, as in the first game.
* BackgroundBoss: [[spoiler: [[OneWingedAngel Granada's final form.]]]]
* BackgroundMusicOverride: [[spoiler: The Throne of Immortals and Granada's Spaceship.]]
* BadassCape: Myra's appears to be made of fire.
* BonusDungeon: The Mountain of Learning, home to the Combiner and Guardian enemies, and some of the best equipment in the game.
* BossInMookClothing: The Combiner in the Mountain of Learning. Aside from [[BarrierChangeBoss changing its elemental weaknesses]], it has boatloads of HP, hits like a truck (1000+ damage per turn to every party member) and is immune to spells such as Momrick[[note]]Freezes enemies for 2 turns when successful[[/note]], Slow[[note]]Slows down enemies when sucessful[[/note]] and Sofie.[[note]]Reduces enemies' Defense when sucessful[[/note]]
* CastFromHitPoints: The entire magic system is based around this, just like the first game.
* CharacterDevelopment: Farus, in the form of his transforming from a SilentProtagonist at the beginning of the game to giving lengthy speeches by the finale.
* ContinuityNod: One of the dungeons is an almost perfect reproduction of the maze of Doth from the first game
* CoolTrain: For a significant amount of time, your only means of travel in Eltz.
%%* DoomedHometown: [[spoiler:The entire Underworld]].
* DubNameChange: English-language players will probably be baffled by Rich Jr.'s constant references to a mysterious "father" that they're apparently supposed to recognize, but who is never named outright. That's because for whatever reason, the name of Richter, the strongest mercenary in the original Lennus, was changed to "Mouth" in the localization of Paladin's Quest.
* ElementalPowers: Just like the first game, there are 8 elements in total:
** KillItWithFire: Fire. This one is available from the start. Provides basic attack magic. Effective against plants.
** ShockAndAwe: Light. This one is available from the start. Provides basic attack magic. Effective against reptiles.
** BlowYouAway: Air. [[RuleOfThree This one is available from the start]]. Provides basic attack magic. Effective against mammal/humanoid enemies.
** ExtraOreDinary: Gold. Can be used to combine other elements, thus creating better spells.
** DishingOutDirt: Earth. Mainly used for support spells such as Heal.[[note]]Cures status ailments from party members[[/note]]
** BizarroElements: Sky. Unlike what its name may imply, Sky can be best described as a summoner element, since its spells revolve around [[TheBeastmaster summoning creatures]] to aid you in battle, such as Gubo.[[note]]Summons a cute Gubo to attack all enemies. Deals NonElemental damage[[/note]] Can also be used to combine other elements, thus creating better spells.
** MakingASplash: Water. Provides magic support mainly in the form of wall spells. Also provides the incredibly useful Revive[[note]]Revives one party member. At its lowest level, they'll be revived with 10 HP, while at its highest level, they'll be revived at full HP[[/note]] spell.
** PowerOfTheVoid, InfinityPlusOneElement: Void. Provides the ultimate magic in the game when combined with other elements.
* FiveBadBand:
** BigBad: [[GodOfEvil Gra]][[LightIsNotGood na]][[OmnicidalManiac da]].
** TheDragon: [[BlowYouAway Be]][[WingedHumanoid lts]].
** EvilGenius: [[BeardOfEvil Bal]][[PlantPerson mod]].
** TheBrute: [[FatBastard Boo]][[PecFlex zoo]].
** DarkChick: [[TheSmurfettePrinciple Bej]][[WhipItGood ould]]
* FloatingContinent: The cities of Andel. [[spoiler:Except they're floating]] ''[[spoiler:underground]]''.
%%* FourIsDeath:
%%** Granada's four Angels.
%%** [[spoiler:The four artifacts.]]
%%* FromBadToWorse
%%* GainaxEnding
* GoodMorningCrono: In a twist, the one waking the player up is [[spoiler:the major villain]].
* GuideDangIt: A good number of mecenaries. Recruiting Polock takes the cake for this, but other honorable mentions include recruiting Nikita, recruiting and powering up Myra, and finding a bride for Eudenus.
%%* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Especially for an SNES game.
%%* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler:The Great Union]].
* NoobCave: [[spoiler:The entire underworld]].
* OptionalPartyMember: Nearly all of the mercenaries.
%%* OutsideContextProblem: The BigBad.
* PathOfInspiration: [[spoiler:The Great Union is much less pleasant than the prophecies indicate]].
* PermanentlyMissableContent:
** The Gold spirit [[spoiler:and everything else in the underworld, including any mercenaries you didn't recruit at least once]].
** The Water spirit becomes unobtainable once you go to [[spoiler:Lennus.]]
* PointOfNoReturn: The [[spoiler:Great Union]].
* PointyEars: A few of the races.
* SchmuckBait: Almost too many to count. The are many, many [=NPCs=] who will gleefully take all of your money away--[[PermanentlyMissableContent permanently.]]
* ShoutOut: The fan translation include's Gravity'sRainbow and an evil plan involving a [[StarWars Death Star]].
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Justified for Nikita, who ''is'' a stripper. Most of the other female characters' clothing isn't particularly revealing, although Myra seems to only have her LeotardOfPower and cape.
%%* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:Farus, twice.]]
* VerbalTic: The four angels...zoo.
* WhatTheHellHero:
** In addition to [[spoiler:the destruction of Andel]], it's quite easy to irritate and offend the people of Eltz.
** If you do ''anything'' before helping the people of Tol Terran--including taking other paths in the dungeon--you will cause more of its inhabitants to die. The Tol Terrans know this, and will hate you for it.
%%* WorldSundering: [[spoiler:Twice!]]
