Trivia / Darius

  • As mentioned already on the main page, nearly every boss in the game is modeled after a sea creature.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Darius and Darius II do not have Arcade Perfect Ports, due to their multi-monitor gimmicks. You can find home ports that use more standard aspect ratios, however. Dariusburst Another Chronicle, despite using a multi-monitor setup, got away just fine, thankfully; it's included with Dariusburst Chronicle Saviours, which has a 32:9 option for the PC version.note 
  • Name's the Same: Darius is also a League of Legends playable character.
  • No Export for You:
    • While Chronicle Saviours is available digitally in all major reasons, the physical Vita release—the only physical version of the game—is Japan-only. Mercifully, like other Vita games, it has no region-lock, but you'll still have to pay a premium to import it if you live outside of Japan, and it doesn't have other language options.
    • Most Darius soundtracks are available globally on iTunes, but in spite of being a mainline game, Dariusburst Another Chronicle's soundtrack is limited to a Japan-region physical release.
  • Word of Dante: The gag boss in Akkanvader known as My Home Daddy's Girl got her name on a fan site.
