Added DiffLines:

* MagicKnight: Kharg is this to the Human side [[spoiler: due to his half-Deimos heritage]].
** UpToEleven with the Deimos. They're an ''entire race'' of 'em.
* MagicVersusScience: A thematic example. Human society is very hierarchical and industrial compared to the SocialDarwinist LowFantasy villages the Deimos operate in.
** Kharg's party also utilizes technology like the Big Owl in contrast to the other side, which arms itself with The Pyron and other types of MagicalAccessory.


* FiveManBand:

*** TheLeader (Kharg)
*** TheLancer (Maru)
*** TheBigGuy (Ganz)
*** TheChick (Paulette)
*** TheSmartGuy / SixthRanger ([[spoiler:Tatjana]], briefly replaced by [[spoiler:Samson]])

* OfficialCouple: Believe it or not, [[PuppyLove Maru and Bebedora.]] This leads to many a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, and is in fact cited as the reason the plot works. Sadly, this is [[AbortedArc abandoned]] in ''End of Darkness.''

''Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits'' is the fourth game in the ''VideoGame/ArcTheLad'' series. The first game in the series for the PS2, Twilight of the Spirits tells the story of two characters; the first is Kharg, a young man who happens to be descended from noble blood, training with his mentor, Lloyd. Everything is fine and happy, and we meet up with two other characters (his friend Paulette and a forest-dwelling child named Maru) before monsters called [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Deimos]] attack one of the nearby mines for their main source of power, Spirit Stones. After [[spoiler: Lloyd's death]], Kharg vows to stop the Deimos, and later teams up with an ex-solider named Ganz and a scientist named Tatjana.

Added DiffLines:

* ExposedToTheElements: When Kharg, Paulette, and Maru go to a snow-covered mountain, Maru (who [[WalkingShirtlessScene doesn't even wear a shirt]]) almost immediately complains about how cold it is. Paulette then [[LampshadeHanging points out that of course he would be cold dressed like that]].

Added DiffLines:

* DragonAncestry: Kharg and Darc are the twin sons of a forbidden union between Nafia, a human woman, and Windalf, a member of the Drakyr, a race of {{Draconic Humanoid}}s. Kharg is able to pass as a human (though a pair of wings sprout from his back at one point, terrifying everyone around him) while Darc has a small pair of horns and his skin is partially covered in scales.

Added DiffLines:

* GenocideDilemma: PlayedWith. Both of the brothers have a hatred for the opposing race and swear to wipe out the other for the sake of peace. After the [[spoiler: final battle with Emperor Darkham]], Darkham entrusts the destruction of the Deimos to Kharg before [[spoiler: [[SelfDisposingVillain killing himelf]]]]. Despite having misgivings about the Deimos, Kharg is understandably {{Squick}}ed out at the idea of wiping out an entire sentient race and ultimately decides against it.

Added DiffLines:

** After fighting him, [[spoiler: Darkham]] tries to get [[spoiler: Kharg]] to become one as well, charging him with using [[spoiler: his superweapon]] to [[spoiler: [[GenocideDilemma wipe out the Deimos]]]]. [[YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame He thankfully hesitates]].


''Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits'' is the fourth game in the ''VideoGame/ArcTheLad'' series. The narration begins with Kharg, a young man who happens to be descended from noble blood, training with his mentor, Lloyd. Everything is fine and happy, and we meet up with two other characters (his friend Paulette and a forest-dwelling child named Maru) before monsters called [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Deimos]] attack one of the nearby mines for their main source of power, Spirit Stones.

After that, the story switches over to a [[HalfHumanHybrid half-human half-Deimos]] young man named Darc, who is enslaved by a froggy hag named Geedo. Needless to say, he doesn't get treated very well. After meeting up with an Orcon named Delma and her brother Densimo, he claims that his ambition is to become King of the Deimos.

* BadAss: A good deal of the main characters, though [[MightyGlacier Ganz]] deserves mention.
-->*cracks his neck* I'll grind you to fine powder!
* BadAssBoast: Volk's monologue to Darc in Chapter 2 of his story. He makes another that's possibly even more BadAss after you [[DefeatMeansFriendship fight him.]] Volk is the master of these. Even his gorram skill use quotes are BadAss.
