* Knowing the backstory of ''Strider 2'' only highlights how much of a OneManArmy that Hiryu is. Meio's plan to kill all of humanity in the original game? He succeeded despite his death, meaning in the two thousand years between games, it became populated with a new humanity wholly dedicated to the Grandmaster. This means ''every army and combatant on Earth'' (besides the very little off-screen support he gets) is out for Hiryu's blood, and they're much more dangerous and better-armed than in the original game. This doesn't stop Hiryu from singlehandedly fulfilling his mission a second time and making damn sure Meio's deader than dead this time. And the story scenes make it out to be nigh-''effortless'' for him, to the point that he becomes a walking MookHorrorShow, every single villain gets progressively more terrified of his unflinching progress, and even '''Meio''' [[VillainousBreakdown loses his shit]] when he's finally stopped.
