** EvilGenius (Doplin)

Added DiffLines:

* NonMaliciousMonster: The Mountain Morg is a harmless mountain spirit who lives up in a cave eating moss. It's not hostile unless provoked, and there's no reason to attack it except that Lang needs a difficult fight to [[spoiler: awaken his Origin]].

Added DiffLines:

* DifficultySpike: Right around the midpoint of the game, the monsters suddenly roughly triple in power, and the easy creatures you were fighting right before it happens suddenly become a serious threat if you've been doing a normal level of grinding.


* AristocratsAreEvil: The Doplin aristocracy are several varied shades of {{Jerkass}}, such as the self-absorbed-but-chivalrous Mighty Balken, the status-obsessed [[MeaningfulName Chez Snobbe]] patrons, and the downright vile [[SinisterMinister Bishop Doplin]].

* DiskOneNuke: Grab the Point Card from the drawer at the start of the game. Then go to the item shop and buy ten Poison Cures though the player must do this one at a time then sell them one at a time as well. Then exit the shop, talk to the shop keeper and keep on entering and exiting and she will give out some items. Then repeat buying as many of the Heal Powders as you can, individually, then resell those individually till you get the Handwoven Carpet and the Big Child's bed which players can sell for an immense amount of money. Go splurge on your money while building up as much points on the Point Card as possible and it's easy to beat even the BeefGate boss that players are supposed to be beating at level 9.


The sequel to ''Videogame/LegendOfLegaia'' developed by Prokion [[note]]The first Legaia was develpoed by the studio Contrail[[/note]]. Despite similarities in gameplay and some character designs, Legaia 2 is based in a completely different world, with nothing carrying over from the first game. This game also features the "Tactical Arts System" from the first game.

* NeckLift: During the FinalBossPreview, [[spoiler:Avalon]] is seen telekinetically holding a helpless Galvan by the neck to emphasize his power and ruthlessness. It is likely that his Origin, [[spoiler:Igohl]] is actually responsible.



* {{Tsundere}}: Nancy towards Lang. She can be more on the dere dere side if you choose to be nicer, or she can be more on the tsun tsun side if you choose to be an asshole.



* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: Nancy, if you choose not to be nice to her. Though [[spoiler: in the end she still ''is'' one, because Lang decides to go off on more adventures and not return to her]].


* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: The viewpoint held by both [[spoiler:Avalon and Velna; the latter because humans wiped out her race, the Kabel, the former because he was cast out and nearly killed by AllOfTheOtherReindeer for being a Mystic.]]



* ShrinkingViolet: Maya appears this way for quite a while, though part of the reason is due to her being a CuteMute. Later, she arguably becomes less shy.
* SquishyWizard: Maya. She is the party's BlackMage and WhiteMage, but has about 60% of the HP of Lang or Kazan, and her defense also leaves things to be desired.



* WalkingTheEarth: Discussed. After defeating Bubba, he decides that he'll move forward, become a drifter, and walk the earth from then on. Subverted in that he {{lampshade|hanging}}s that he has said just enough to save face before he departs.



* WhiteMagicianGirl: Maya is the primary source of healing in the game through Rivas.



* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Lang.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Doplin, after it is clear that he has been used by Velna and Avalon]], is assimilated into the fiery form of Slogar and dies a most painful death at [[spoiler:Velna's]] command.
* YouMonster: Bishop Doplin. [[spoiler: After you defeat Elliot and Marienne for the final time, the party confronts Doplin in order to obtain the [[CosmicKeystone Pyro]][[MacGuffin lith]] ]]. After he learns [[spoiler: that the duo is dead]], he remarks that he never cared about them, and was just using them for their power. The party goes ballistic on hearing this, and call him out for it.
--> [[spoiler: '''Maya:''']] I used to think that there was no such thing as a truly evil person. but... I guess I was wrong.
--> '''Kazan:''' I've never met anyone as rotten to the core... This is not a man, he's garbage.

* AdiposeRex: Doplin is the ruler of Darakin and is massively overweight.



* AssKicksYou: The [[{{Pun}} tail end]] of Sharon's "Peach Surprise" art.
* BackFromTheDead:
** [[spoiler:Rauss was killed by Kazan before the game]], but has survived in spirit thanks to cursed armor, for the purpose of fighting once more.
** More generally, in the Dream Match, you can face any number of characters who have died in the main story, including [[spoiler:Balken, Raynof, Marienne, Elliott, Velna, and Vestra]]. This is implied to take place in a "space between dimensions", giving a HandWave for why the party can fight them.
* BadassNormal:
** Ayne -- he is the only party member that lacks an Origin, but is over eight feet tall, has enormous muscles, and wields an axe as large as Lang. His strength is enormous as well, able to push hundreds of ''tons'' of rock around.
** Bubba also lacks an origin, and has muscles nearly the size of Ayne. As Ayne is a giant from Jinga, Bubba is likely the most powerful human lacking an Origin on the planet.
* BareFistedMonk: Kazan.

them.



* BigEater: Lampshaded with one of the titles Lang can acquire, "Glutton King", earned by eating all of the food Sharon makes in Tanza. This is also shown in Darakin, if Lang orders the Premium Deluxe Full-Course Meal at Chez Snobbe.
* {{Bishonen}}: Elliot.
* BlackKnight / BloodKnight: [[spoiler:Rauss]], who wears possessed and cursed ebon armor to [[spoiler:[[BackFromTheDead reanimate his spirit and corpse]] to fight once more.]]



* TheChosenOne: Lang and [[spoiler:Avalon]] were chosen by [[spoiler:the Source Forge]] to shape the world and guide its future.



* CoolBigSis: Sharon.
* CorruptPolitician / CorruptChurch: Bishop Doplin; he is ostensibly a religious figure of St. Joprian and appears to be the ''de facto'' ruler of Darakin, fitting both tropes.



* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: The Ultimate Fang attack, a technique forbidden by the Sky Fang masters -- while most techniques are fueled by fighting spirit, this one draws power from one's (lack of) sanity. [[spoiler:Rauss]] overuses this technique, requiring his master [[spoiler:Kazan to kill him]].



* TheDeterminator: Lang. Seen in particular at the end of the game when his determination and will, along with ThePowerOfFriendship (and Hope) are used to bring new life to the Source Forge and prevent the world's destruction.
* DirtyOldMan: Kazan, who is 60 years old, yet still tries to peep at the girls in the party when they're in hot springs.



* EvilCounterpart: Velna, who can use the same magic as Maya, and indeed, casts it in a very similar way. [[spoiler: This is because she's the lone survivor of the civilization Maya descends from.]]



* GentleGiant: Ayne. In particular, he seems to have a soft spot for children, as evidenced in a scene in Nohl.



* GracefulLoser: After being defeat by the party, Bubba admits his defeat, and goes into an impressive speech about how ThatManIsDead and that he'll [[WalkingTheEarth wander the earth]] to find his own path. Then he hangs a [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] on it when he inner monologues that his speech was probably sufficient to save some face and that he should skedaddle now.



* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: Sharon.



* TheLadette: Sharon.



* TheMentor: Kazan. Although he adventures with the party throughout the game, his role in the story is to provide advice and wisdom to the younger party members, especially Lang.



* OmnicidalManiac: [[spoiler:Avalon]].
--> '''[[spoiler:Avalon]]''': I will destroy all life, leaving only me! I will be the world!
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:Avalon abandons his humanity completely and fuses with his Origin, Igohl]] to create the final boss, The Infinite One.



* PantyShot: Marienne's skirt is way too short, and you get a panty shot whenever the camera looks at her face-on. As she's apparently a little girl, seriously overweight ''and'' insane, this is concentrated FanDisservice.
* {{Pirate}}: Sharon. She and her crew are firmly of the "honorable rogue" variety, and have a set code of honor that they adhere to.
* PirateParrot: Sharon does have one, inherited from her late father, Alphis. If the party completes a short sidequest, said parrot will reveal the location of Alphis's treasure, notably including a Heaven's Secret.



* ThePowerOfHate: [[spoiler:Velna, a survivor of the Fall of Kabel]], has managed to survive thousands of years thanks to this and her Origin, [[spoiler:Vestra]].



* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler:Velna, she was alive at the time of the fall of Kabel, through the power of her Origin Vestra.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: When [[spoiler:Rauss]] finally goes completely insane from overusing the Ultimate Fang, his eyes briefly glow bright red to signify this fact.[[note]]He is extremely dangerous in this state, with far greater attacking power until you dispel the insanity by having Lang use his ''Sleeping Dragon'' Art[[/note]]



* SecondHourSuperpower: Lang doesn't get the ability to use his Origin, Galea, until nearly a quarter of the way through the game.



* SummonMagic: Origins.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: The BigBad, [[spoiler: Avalon]], is originally known as "Gold Eyes" in his first appearance. You later learn that [[spoiler: he, along with Lang, is a Star Shaper, one who can manipulate the Source Forge, the beacon of creation. You also learn that he wields the Supreme Origin, Igohl, which possesses nearly unlimited power.]]

* ThenLetMeBeEvil: Torture Avalon long enough, and he'll decide to KillAllHumans.



* TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening: Lang only awakens his origin, Galea, after being beaten to the point of near-death by a monster living at the top of Mt. Gabel.
