YMMV / Suikoden I

  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • Clive was so popular for a late-game guy with no plot relevance that the sequel gave him a vast optional (and easily missed) sub-plot to himself.
    • For someone who was offed very early in the game, Odessa Silverberg actually has a substantial amount of fanbase. There were some extra materials to show her exploits before she bit the dust as a result.
  • Game Breaker: Has its own page.
  • Narm: Viktor says Pink Balloon during an otherwise serious scene.
  • Narm Charm: The dragons look like dragons, act like dragons, and fly like dragons. What do they sound like when they roar? Elephants.
  • Player Punch: Quite a few, but one in particular established the Player Punch trend for future Suikodens: Gremio's Heroic Sacrifice in one of the most surreal Death Traps ever conceived.
  • Tear Jerker: Gremio's death.
