Go To

Untold Legends is an RPG series by Sony Online Entertainment. The series includes three titles named Untold Legend Brotherhood of Blade, Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code and Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom, the first of which was the first RPG on the Playstation Portable. Because of this, Brotherhood of the Blade is essentially Champions of Norrath lite, while the other two games have diverged somewhat.


The first game provides examples of:

  • Absolute Cleavage: Most of the female characters in the game have this.
  • Alchemy Is Magic: The alchemist's powers are naturally based in alchemy, such as transmuting gold, creating potions, and making fire bombs, but she is also capable of shooting bolts of lightning and petrifying monsters.
  • Blessed with Suck: In-universe, druids will live very short lifespans in exchange for their powers.
  • Blow You Away: Druids can summon sentient tempests as companions, but like the alchemist's golem, they're generally useless.
  • Copy-and-Paste Environments
  • Crapsack World: Particularly for anyone living outside of the walls of Aven, since there is always constant threats from monsters and such.
  • Critical Hit
  • Dual Wield: Usable by both the knight and berserker.
  • Excuse Plot
  • Fur Bikini: Most of the Berserker's armor falls under this category.

  • Giant Spider: Common Praetox spiders qualify, being roughly human-sized. That's to say nothing of their queen, Athloxxia, who is almost elephant-sized...
  • Golem: The Alchemist can learn to summon one, but it's fairly useless as a damage dealer or meat shield. You can, however, learn to make it explode. Golems can also allow you to put a little distance away from a group of enemies or a boss, though, so you can ready a distance attack (an arrow, a thrown weapon, or a distance spell like "Chain Lightning" for the Alchemist).
  • Improbable Power Discrepancy: Monsters and enemies will always scale with the player character and since you can restart the story at any point in the game, it's possible to fight very powerful
  • Inn Security: The game opens with the inn being attacked by spiders.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: The order of Knights at Aven.
  • Leotard of Power: Many of the alchemist's pieces of armor will give her this appearance, even when her legs are completely covered.
  • Life Meter / Mana Meter: In "Brotherhood of the Blade" the blue meter on the left is the Mana Meter, the red meter on the right is the Life Meter.
    • Red Health Potion Vials fill the Life Meter, but the meter will take time to fill, so do not totally deplete the Life Meter (usually when down to half health is a good time to use a Health Vial). Vials are Small, Medium (or "no adjective" as in "Health Vial") and Large.
    • Blue Power Potion Vials fill the Mana Meter, but this fills immediately on using a vial. If you use spells quite a bit (or the "Build Golem" spell that takes a LOT of Mana) you will need a good supply of them. These also come as Small, Medium and Large.
    • Yellow Rejuvenation Vials can fill EITHER (not Both) the Life Meter or Mana Meter if you're out of the potion vials that normally fill that particular meter. They come in Small, Medium and Large but are more expensive than either Health of Power vials.
  • Money Spider: Gold can and will be dropped by any enemy, including spiders, wolves, rhinos, etc. You name it.
  • Nubile Savage: Most of the wildling women.
  • Of Corsets Sexy: Practically all of the alchemist's armor are corsets and quite a lot of the NPCs wear them, as well.
  • Paying in Coins: Loren Haggard, the vendor in the market, sells you weapons, armor, jewelry accessories that buff your stats, items that buff weapons and armor, and Health/Power/Rejuvenation Vials for gold coins (Aven doesn't have credit cards or checks, but the gold doesn't take up space or have weight). He likewise buys all of that extra you have of anything (especially if you don't have the level for using it or you have a better item) but for less gold than he'd sell to you. But it's all gold right there.
  • Pig Man: The gorgein race led by Matron Skulkgra, some of the first enemies that the player will face outside of the walls of Aven.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Overseer Lysetta wears one of these.
  • Shock and Awe: The alchemist and druid have access to Chain Lightning and Thunder Strike respectively.
  • Socketed Equipment
  • Stripperiffic: Most of the Alchemist's armor is like this. Some of the earlier Berserker armor, as well.
  • Take Your Time: NPCs are generally always in danger of some sort but there's never any time limit to achieving your tasks.
  • The Wall Around the World: The city of Aven is closed off from the rest of the world of Unataca and most of its citizens have never set foot outside. This has earned the ire of the nomads who live outside of Aven.
  • Wolverine Claws: The Berserker specializes in these kinds of weapons.
