YMMV / Romancing SaGa 2

  • Good Bad Bugs: Soul Steal will kill any and all of the Seven Heroes.
    • Considering that the heroes you fight for most of the game are actually copies sent by the originals, perhaps this was actually intended this way.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The music in certain areas and the concept of your soul being ripped out and eaten by Kzinssie.
    • Also, the Termites return in the final scenarios and take over the bodies of NPCs and recruitable characters. Talking to them makes you fight them, now think about it for a second... They essentially are using your citizens and soldiers as husks.
    • Rest at an inn with the Darkstone Ring and instead of the regular sleep music, a much more eerie jingle plays as you're losing LP.
  • Vindicated by History: Romancing SaGa 2 didn't receive much of a fanbase outside of Japan, even amongst the emulation community due to it being a notoriously difficult product to translatenote  and having somewhat menacing mechanics that could come off as unintuitive. After its December 2017 re-release, it started to gain a fanbase, even amongst people who had known of the game but never picked it up.
