YMMV / The Last Blade

  • Awesome Music: THE SOUNDTRACK. note 
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • Akari Ichijou has the most appearances outside her debut game.
    • Hibiki Takane, for being a quiet girl that developes into a hardened warrior, to the point where she appears in Capcom vs. SNK 2: Mark of the Millennium.
  • Moment of Awesome: If you're of the Evil Is Cool mindset, Setsuna has a big one. While everyone else's endings in The Last Blade 2 have them freeing Kouryu's spirit in some way, Setsuna forgoes that kind of a heartwarming conclusion and just kills him. He fist holds up Kouryu's battered body by his throat, calls him a pansy, then kills him in a way that can't be pretty since this is followed by the same shot as before, except Kouryu is no longer being held up by Setsuna, and Setsuna's raised hand is now covered in blood. Setsuna then laughs and looks badass; roll credits.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The games are gorgeously animated.
