Fridge / The Legend of Dragoon

Go To

  • The Blossom/Rose Storm spell: Albert uses roses, a symbol of revolution and opposition to tyranny. Lavitz uses Cherry Blossoms, a symbol of the brevity of warriors' lives.
    • Likewise, their strong friendship shows in that their final addition, which shares the same name, has the opposite name for each other: Lavitz using Rose Storm and Albert using Blossom Storm.
  • Shana winding up with people falling for her all over the place (especially noticeable in your first trip on the Queen Fury) becomes understandable once it's discovered that it's a side-effect of her being the Moon Child.
    • This could also explain why everyone ships her with Dart. Even Albert, who'd literally just met Shana, knew she was in love with Dart despite her not even having spoken yet. They're all subconsciously trying to serve the Moon Child's will.

  • Listen closely to "If You Still Believe." It's about Rose and Zieg, from Rose's perspective. It might take a few times listening to figure it out, but lines like "If from where you’re standing/You can see the sky above/I’ll be waiting for you/If you still believe in love" make it obvious.
  • Rose's Jagenian nature actually makes a little more sense if you think about it. Early on, she's probably your best character overall, however as the game goes on, she begins to be overshadowed by other party members. This can actually make sense because if you think about it, she (As well as Miranda and Albert technically) are the only party members who joined without having a "normal" phase where they lacked dragoon spirits...she wasn't getting weaker, you were just catching up to her.
  • Dart's Fashionable Asymmetry was actually a common practice among swordsmen in many countries. Leaving your sword arm unarmored (or sometimes completely bare) gave it more mobility and thus made it easier to attack.

  • If Zieg got a good look at the Black Monster before trying to transform, he'd have seen Rose. That would mean that in his eyes, his ex-fiancee had gone insane and was slaughtering an entire village for no discernible reason.
  • While some of the other characters consider leaving the party at various points throughout the story, Rose sticks around and even admits she doesn't have much of a reason to do so. Considering she's the Black Monster, Rose probably just sees the adventure as killing time since she doesn't have anything to do for the next ninety years.
  • That Shana suddenly loses control of her dragoon spirit which is immediately passed on to Miranda seems like an Ass Pull to have her Put on a Bus but two things actually hint at it earlier in the game. First, the music that plays when Shana uses the dragoon spirit to heal herself is the same that plays whenever she demonstrates unusual powers or when the party encounters a virage. Second, Shirley's dragoon armor has very little in common with Shana's but is almost identical to Miranda's. So in reality Shana subconsciously used her powers as the Moon Child to make the dragoon spirit work for her and Miranda was the true dragoon all along.

  • Lloyd one-shotting anyone who turns into a dragoon during his boss battle makes sense given that he's wielding the Dragon Buster which was explicitly created to kill dragons.
  • The one time Zieg seems to genuinely lose his calm smugness is when Dart transforms and lunges at him. Zieg shouts, "Don't come near me!" and blasts Dart back with magic. Given that Zieg is possessed by Melbu Frahma, who was previously killed by the Red-Eye Dragoon, it's like Dart accidentally hit his Trauma Button.
  • Dart having two dragoon spirits attuned to him initially makes no sense, but the most likely explanation is he was always meant to be the dragoon for the Divine Dragon and could only use the Red-Eye Dragoon Spirit due to being a dragoon related to it's real master.
