The last period i've played both games a lot,so here's a list with similarities between S2 and S5 characters. You can see clearly that S5 was based on S2. They took all the good elements from S2 (storyline,character personalities,multi-endings) and they add more improved graphics,and characters voice...so they managed to make the perfect game.
- You've got to rescue them in order to join you.
- They are always followed by a stupid brainless bodyguard,although poor Lucretia has to deal with 2 bodyguards.
- Both of them are carrying something made of feather
- Both are hot babes (
Ok,we all know that Georg is participating in S2,but he is totally different from the Georg in S5.In S5 he is more like a pretty lad,but not a womanizer like Viktor or Kyle,and his role in S5,is as important as Flik's role in S2. In fact he is the 2nd closest person to the hero,after Lyon,like Flik in S2 who is the 2nd closest person to the hero along with Viktor,after Nanami.
On the other hand in S2 Georg is a loner,who is very distant towards the hero. Although his fighting skills didn't fade away.
As we said before Viktor is on of the closest people to the hero of S2,like Kyle is one from the closest people to the hero of S5. Viktor and Flik have a unite attack in S2,like Georg and Kyle in S5. He is a womanizer like Viktor,but he is prettier than him,though.
He also leads the 2nd party during Queen's Campaign,like Viktor in Luca Blight's battle....both are 3-party battles too.
- Both are middle-aged (Kiba is 47,and not 37 as Richmond says)
- Both are great tanks (although Kiba participates only in major battles,but he is the best tank in these battles)
- In order to recruit them you have to fight against them,in major events.
- Both are married (although Galleon is devorced)
- Both of them have beard,but different type...it's a minor statement though,but if you have ever noticed most characters are clean-shaved.
Nanami/Miakis & Lyon
Both Miakis and Lyon have elements from Nanami.
- She is playful like Nanami.
- She has high speed stats
- She has a unite attack with the hero
- She has similar hairstyle with Nanami
- She is the closest person to the hero
- You need to have recruited all 108 stars,in order to keep her alive.
- She has a unite attack with the hero
- They are "married to their job"
- They are leading Cavalry Units
- Both of them,are one of the few commanders who are playable in regural battles.
- Both are carrying big swords
Shin/Cius & Lelei
See Teresa/Lucretia above.
- Talkless guys
- Similar hairstyle and color
- Strong physical fighters and poor mages
- One of the slowest characters of the game
Alex & Hilda/ Belcoot & Marina
Although Belcoot and Alex have different personalities,but their roles are similar in the game.
- Marina and Hilda are inn girls
- They are participating in the main plot,but they are optional characters.
- Both are them are recruitable,just after you got your HQ.
- You've got to save Marina,in a different way than Hilda though,but you still have to save her.
Sigfried,Feather,Abizboah & Rulodia/ Genoh & Byakuren
In S5 you can have 2 large characters,as you can in S5
Both characters hae 2 different forms,and they can transfer to a different form via their runes.
Miklotov & Camus/Rahal & Roog
- Pretty boy duo,same colour clothing and same star of destiny too.
- Both of them will disobey their leader
Although Craig is a good guy,unlike Gorudo,they are similar.
- They are leaders of knights.
- The first time,you meet Craig he will refuse to make an alliance with your army,like Gorudo
- His clothes are grey,like Gorudo's
- He has a beard like Gorudo,whilst his knights are clean-shaved.
Makai & Ridley/Orok & Volga (respectively)
Orok will side with the enemy like Makai,and Volga will blame him just like Ridley,plus the fact that Lelcar has 3 different parts,like Two River.
-Both are bandits,they have the same star,and their pretending to be the game's hero.
Stallion-Kinnison & Ayda/ Isato & Urda
Although their race are similar with Stallion,they are like Kinnison & Ayda. If you have recruited all squirels,you'll have an extra scene in the end of the game where you will see Ayda finding Kinnison,and telling him something probably,where Kinnison feels embarassed. Probably Ayda had a crush with Kinnison like Urda probably is in love with Isato. Plus both of them are using hawks as weapon,and they have a unite attack together...and 4 of them are recruited in a forest.
The 3 ninjas of the game....2 of them are a pair (Sasuke & Mondo/Sagiri & Shigure) and the other one is solo. Sagiri has a long raged weapon,like Sasuke and the other 2 has a short ranged one. the pair of ninjas in each game have a master (Sasuke & Mondo have Hanzo,and Sagiri & Sigure have Oboro),and the 3 of them are acquainted in each game.
- Both are teens
- They are dragon knights
- They were purple clothes
- They own a baby dragon
You may wonder what a relationship has a gladiator with a sculptor but if you look carefully,you will notice that Jude is quite similar with Shoon.
- Both of them are late recruits (Shoon is actually the latest if you recruit Eresh)
- You will meet them earlier in the game,but you won't be able to recruit them.
- They won't escape from the city whilst it is conquered by the enemy. Jude is stuck in Greenhill and Shoon is stuck in Stormfirst.
- And finally they will be recruitable once you liberated their city
5 characters with similar names,and looks. although in S5,all characters are SoD,whilst in S2 only Mukumuku is a SoD.
And the bad guys:
-The traitor of this game,who happens to be a good person actualy.
-As it stated by other guys here,both of them have a unite attack with a hero,which causes damage to all enemies.
-Plus they bear a true rune,after some point of the game.
The psycho of the game
Culgan & Seed/Zahhak & Alenia.
-A duo of skilled generals of the enemy side,who are seen together most of the time.
- Although in S2 both were men,in S5 there is a man and woman duo,but their hair color is similar. (Zahhak has gray hair like Culgan,whilst Alenia has red like Seed)
- It is already stated above,that you fight them before entering the throne room,and after the fight,they will die.
