Trivia / Agarest Senki

  • Accidentally Accurate: Black Hole in this game pull enemies into it's mass black body before evaporating into a small white mass which causes a massive explosion. This is actually accurate, Black Hole did not just conveniently disappear like in some other fictions shown, Hawking radiation has proven that after a Black Hole lost it's masses an enormous explosions surpassing nukes will happen.
  • Acting for Two:
    • Besides Eva, Marina Inoue also voices Varuna, Chaos' Star Crossed Lover.
    • Mobius shares the same seiyuu with adult!Alberti. Too bad they never meet due to the fact that Mobius is located at the generation 2 tower.
  • Actor Allusion: By now it should be obvious that Masayuki Katou is Idea Factory's go to guy for Chivalrous Perverts. His character specific DLC item, while other characters get their family heirlooms or personal accessories, is Winfield's headband.
  • Fan Nickname: Leonhardt 2.0 for Rex Raglen.
  • Fountain of Expies:
    • The following Agarest games all feature Avatars of the Gods who greatly resemble Dyshana. Agarest 2 ends up paying with this when the Dyshana Expy is revealed to not be the game's Avatar of the Gods: Faz is.
    • All following games will feature a pink-haired elf girl based on Ellis who can summon a Larva and will only be romanceable in the final generation, they may vary slightly in personality, but they’re clearly based on her.
  • Name's the Same: Georg has the same name as another Georg who is similarly badass.
  • Relationship Voice Actor:
  • Screwed by the Network:
    • Why was the North American 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.
  • Sex Sells: The entire US Marketing for the games. As if it couldn't get any more ridiculous, Agarest 2's Special Edition comes with a blow-up doll. Yikes. It's actually just a plushie toy.
  • Talking to Himself: Due to the fact that there are just tons of characters in this game, some of them had to be voiced by the same seiyuu. Examples include Leo and Rex (though that one's justified, and Alberti sharing a voice with Mobius.
    • Borgnine and adult!Alberti. Talk about a lot of range right there.
    • Sarburgh and Zerva. Have fun hearing Zerva as a stoic and as a large ham.
    • Friedelinde, if you get Dyshana in Extra Mode. She even has the same hair color!
    • Sofia and Valeria from Agarest 1 if you downloaded her DLC. Yeah, they sound way different.
  • What Could Have Been: European Agarest was going to be Hardcore, but it was changed due to demand by fans.
