30 Days of Gaming: Day 17

Day 17: Favorite antagonist.

DIE PIGS! Luca Blight from Suikoden II is a villain done right. Someone that you’re afraid of, with lots of strength but also a pretty good brain. I can’t remember if he falls into the RPG trope of “not killing you when he can and leaving”, don’t think so. The final battle against him is one of the most epic scenes in gaming, having to go through 3 normal battles to wear him down, cutscene arrows (which usually kill!) and then a duel before he finally falls. The rest of the game and its antagonists kinda trundle along after his death.

    there are totally times when Luca could kill you, but instead of doing it, he just dicks around talking for like, an hour, then someone shows up and saves you. but i don’t think there’s ever the whole “you’re not worth killing, i’m just gonna turn and walk away,” thing. i mean, he makes hapless villagers crawl around on their hands and knees then just strikes them down in cold blood in one of his first appearances in the game. it’d be totally out of character after that =P
