Ok, I tryed to edit the article, the discription came out fine and just the way it was supposed to... But when I tryed to add the tropes... Let's just say it was a train wreck and leave it at that.
So ya, I have just proved I can't do this by myself, so please give me some help here, I'm practicly begging at this point.
Heres an updated list of tropes.
: Raikoh, Tsuna, and Seimei can do this. Kintoki can only jump once. Sademitsu can jump three times. And Suetaki... he can jump as much as he wants to.
: Raikoh can do this in the 1st game with some weapons, including dual axe/scythes. Tsuna in the 2ed game can take apart his double bladed katana for some dual wielding action, and also has a snap out arm blade on his left arm for a total of THREE blades...
: The Orchid Malevolence, a crimson red bladed sword covered in purple flames that can kill anything in one hit. The catch? In saps all of your health while it is held, turning you into a One-Hit-Point Wonder
: The dash button is basically this, Raikoh (and the others) turn into a gust of wind that moves quickly in the direction you’re moving before turning back.
: There are over 30 weapons in the 1st game, including light/heavy swords, staffs, dual blades and one that looks like a giant metal pinwheel... that last one is more useful then you would think believe it or not, and Raikoh can use all of them like it's second nature. Sadly he only uses swords in the 2ed game. (After rereading this trope I'm not sure if it applies, does it?)
: Tsuna, he has a rough disposition, plays very much like Raikoh, and he's lightning/earth element.
The Smart Guy
: Suetaki, he's also a talking floating tree... yaaa, I don't know what to say other then that, I mean come on, TALKING FLOATING TREE!
The Big Guy
: Kintoki, don't believe me? Look up a picture of him then come back and tell me he's not the big guy.
The Four Gods
: The Japanese version is used for the magic system, with each house representing a god and its element. Note: They seem to be using the Chinese version of Byakko, which is Metal (in game shown as Lightning), instead of the Japanese version, which would be Earth... I have no clue why they did that though. Kohryu is also in the game as Ouryu, but can't be used by the player the same way you can't use Void.
: Crimson King to Raikoh, an Oni demon with lots of flowing red hair that wields a huge stone kanabo, you meat him in a early stage in the 1st game when he wakes up, at this point he can easily kick your ass. Later in the game you get a dual stage where it's just you vs. him, you beat him, but he is not killed. In the 2ed game he shows up as a Bonus Boss that's as strong if not stronger then the end boss, he can be fought with any of the 6 warriors, but you get an extra cut scene if you beat him with Raikoh. Still not dead, many people hope he's in Otogi 3... If there ever is an Otogi 3. Oh, and he sounds like Mojo Jojo, I kid you not.
: Raikoh in the 1st game, he's fast, can smash a demon twice or more his size though a wall, and can launch powerful magic attacks. You can use weapons that focus on one of these aspects, but overall Raikoh is best when he can use all three.
: Raikoh is reduced to this for the 2ed game, he can no longer use the strongest magic, and the much smaller weapon selection weakens him a bit, but he still has some Lightning Bruiser to him, as he can walk into almost any stage and beat it without trouble, even if the stage is meant for another warrior. Tsuna is also a Mario, he's almost exactly like Raikoh in the way he moves and handles, but there’s a twist to him, the way his weapon works makes him good at crowd-control, against lots of small enemies he's a beast, but larger enemies can give him trouble.
: Sademitsu all the way, she has the best movement speed, has the shortest delay between dashes, can keep attacking as long as you keep hitting the light attack button, and does not take hits very well (I think she has even less defense then Seimei, can't remember for sure).
: Kintoki, he has the worst speed, the worst jumping ability, can only use the weakest magic, but he has so much health that he can survive an attack that one-shots every other warrior, and his melee is so strong that he can kill a boss enemy that’s supposed to be immune to melee in two hits... damn, just damn.
: Suetaki and Seimei, they both rely on magic to do most of there dirty work, the difference between the two is that Suetaki can melee if he has to because his weapon gives him a wide range, while Seimei can mostly only use magic, but Seimei can double-tap her spells, firing two full powered shots one after the other AND can use spells even Suetaki can't use, one of which is bar none the strongest spell in the game.
: The end boss of the 1st game has 3 forms, he starts in human form, becomes dragon-like with scales and horns, and then... I can't remember what his last form was like but I know he had one. Interestingly he never changes into a giant monster; all his forms are humanoid, just with deferent skins and huge jumps in power.
Katanas Are Just Better
: Almost completely Subverted, in the 1st game there’s only one sword that resembles a katana, and while it is a good early game weapon, it gets outclassed by the weapons you can get later. In the 2ed game the only person who uses katana is Tsuna, and it's a Double Weapon most of the time, not to mention his starting weapon, his 2ed and 3rd weapons look nothing like katana.
: The Moonlight Sword, not only does it have some of the best stats, but when you do a standing heavy attack the sword unleashes a Moonlight Wave that does incredible damage, one-shoting most enemies and crippling bosses. Makes a Cameo in Ninja Blade
as the strongest heavy sword.
: The five houses are this.
Blow You Away
: The house of Soryu, The Dragon, shoots dragons that home in on enemies. Suetaki is this element, he fits it very well, as he is the only warrior that can jump as many time as you want, so you'll spend most, if not all of your time in the air.
Making a Splash
: The house of Genbu, The Butterfly? (Should be Snake and Turtle), makes a cloud of butterflies made of water that knocks away enemies. Sademitsu is this element, she fits it well, in fact one of her alt costumes turns her entire body into see though water.
Playing with Fire
: The House of Suzaku, The Phoenix, launches Phoenixes made of fire. Kintoki is this element, though he doesn't act too much like a fire type and isn't very good with magic anyway.
Shock and Awe
: The house of Byakko, the Chimera? (Should be Tiger), brings down lightning. Tsuna is this element; he can apparently generate electricity from his body, so much so that he gets used as a living generator at one point in the game.
Power of the Void
: The house of the Void... Duh. Has no spells as you can't use it, and the few enemies that have this element are just resistant to all magic spells.
: Suzaku/Fire is red, Genbu=Water Is Blue
, Soryu=Wind is Green
, Byakko/Lightning is blue or yellow depending on the charge of the spell, Void is black.
Weapon of Choice
Heroes Prefer Swords
: Subverted in the 1st game where Raikoh can use many types of weapons, sadly played straight in the 2ed game where he only uses swords. One of the only things that the 2ed game didn't do better then the 1st.
: Tsuna uses a double katana made from his old katana and the katana of a slain friend. Also a Bifurcated Weapon
An Axe to Grind
: Kintoki, a very big axe... that's sometimes on fire.
: Sadamitsu's weapon, also a somewhat creepy little girl with ice/water elements.
Improbable Weapon User
: Suetaki uses what can only be described as a floating wagon-wheel as a weapon, it is surprisingly effective.
Paper Fan of Doom
: Seimei Dual Wield's these, there not very strong by game standards, but by real life standards they would be the deadliest melee weapons ever.
Carry a Big Stick
: The Crimson King carries around a stone Kanabo so big you could use it as a support beam for a house.
