Maxim holds 2 SWORDS!?

Postby DarkMaster2101 » Fri Dec 05, 2008 10:33 pm

How many of you noticed this!? Maxim in Lufia I held TWO SWORDS!!! Not one but TWO SWORDS!!!

From now on, in the top 10 swordmasters of all time, Maxim is one of them if not number 1.

....Wow. Thank you for the ever so startling news.

Seriously, wasn't that the first difference you noticed when you first played Lufia II?!

:P

Oh well, I suppose you could have not noticed.

That's it! I'm making an item in Lufia II DS that can make Maxm hold two weapons.

Only one I know of is his happy post-battle/status screen jumping with them.

Funny thing, if I remember correctly, despite having two swords in the picture he still only equipped Dual Blade and a shield in the status screen. I know the system was designed for a weapon/shield combo and not a choice, but it's still a little silly. I guess that's the reason the Lufia II development team decided to not give him the two sword picture anymore.

I'm still thinking about Maxim having two swords on Smash Bros still.

Sword+Shield= Link(s)
Two-handed Sword = Ike
Sword = Marth

Hmm... There's sword, two handed sword, and sword and shield but not sword... Shall we?

If you have Maxim having Two swords ....you might need to take in account of what the other one will be .....

Maxim holding Two Duel blades?

That's what puzzled me the most in the game. The name Dual Blade makes you think it's two swords, and Maxim's sprite kind of confirms that. When I was on my first play-through, I thought Devur's sprite might change to having two swords as well once he got the Dual Blade.
But no, it stayed the same, plus the Dual Blade's own sprite is one swords as well.

If Maxim was using two swords, it'd probably be Dual Blade and a Zircon Sword because those are the strongest two swords in the game (Lufia I at least).

That's probably right. Unless he farmed Hydras for the Might Sword over and over again...which can take a good long time :D .

Dual Blade probably had something to do with the Two sides of Humans and Sinerstals and what the blade meant to them

I suppose you cant make a lot of reference to the sprite errors cos i mean .....Dekar always had an Axe when fighting despite the different weapons he used......also his perfect weapon Dekars blade was a sword not a Axe

Zircon blade? Might Sword?.....Strangely the only thing in the world that can defeat the Sinestrals was Dual blade

Sinerstrals

*Sinistrals

Just like how Aguro was using an Axe but his sprite was wielding a sword. You can't do simple sprites like that anymore.

Only the Dual Blade can best the Sinistrals? That's called Lufian Legend AND programming. Besides, Dual Blade is a kick ass sword. Why not use it?

ha, i've actually done that before... and get them to LV.99. yes, i was very bored when i did that.


anyway, i've always wondered myself why Maxim used two swords in FoD. it was cool seeing him use two swords.
