Was referring to WSX+ actually.
Why, is Garland back to being the princess-touching, impertinent-fooling down-knocker in SoP?

>Garland is just a good guy who loves the Earth and needs the Warriors of Light to defeat him to stop the real evil

Fuck no. Stranger of Paradise Garland is dogshit. The only thing people can even praise about him is the memes, lowest common denominator shit.
>>
>>10934552
This whole textbox is a work of art.
Four guys enter a room to contront Garland.
>No one touches my Princess!!
Garland claims possession over a princess, whom only he demands to touch. His grand plan is to stand in the middle of his vaguely satanic keep filled with randomly-spawning undead and creatures of the blight, hording that princess from the outside world.
>LIGHT WARRIORS??
Instantly, without his contronters saying a word, He recognizes them from the prophecy of Lukahn. What do they aim to do? Are they potential suitors?
>You impertinent fools.
Whatever they're here for, Garland knows they're out to end his princess-touching ways, and insults them for their impertinence. This is the immediate, guteral reaction that cuts them like a knife.
>I, Garland, will k ock you all down!!
And now, the gloves are off. Garland perceives the threat, and announces that he will knock down his opponents to ensure he can keep touching the princess whenever and however he wants. The Light Warriors underestimated just how big his desire is to touch his princess. What man can say they never wanted to touch a princess? Garland embodies the final fantasy of the everyman in its truest form.
>>10936313
Every re-release is a hackjob that missed the point. It wears one piece of the textbox as its dead corpse, for cheap thrills.
>>
I often wonder why this kind of thread always opens with an image that centers the whole conversation around one game instead of the broad category of games (in this case, "games with great villains") that the text of the opening post explicitly calls for. Why do so many of you OPs want to shoot yourselves in the feet like that? Or did you really just want to talk about Garland?

To forget is a blessing anon.

I know, but I meant SoP made Garland better.

Amen.

>>10936313
You're being pretty flippant so it doesn't seem worth the time to explain it. You can check it out on your own time if you want.

>>10936335
Bahaha. You're human trash.
>muh memes
You couldn't POSSIBLY be more wrong. Your greentext is wrong, your blacktext is wrong. You're literally the kind of trash the word "filtered" was created for.

oh but it's fine when a player character does it? something something line between terrorism and something something is whether or not the party needs an airship or not.

Split it into multple videos. After you post the first part, post the second part and quote your first post to link back to it.

Idk if id call it a peak villain, but I really like the reveal in Earthbound about how Giygas attempting to control and drive crazy humanity with its psychic powers to get its revenge, only resulted in all of the latent dark recesses of the human mind to completely fuck it up on such a level that it mentally and physically morphed into an embodiment of the raw concept of what humans would consider "evil" and doesn't even have the ability for logical thoughts anymore.
>>
The S and Z blocks from Tetris are the biggest, scariest villains in gaming.
>>
>>10942417
It gets more intense when you take the NES prequel into account. Giygas was so determined to not let his emotions get in his way again that he turned himself into a psychic abomination and everything snowballed out of his control.
>>
>>10942417
>>10943202
Plus the implications that Mother 3 is the bad future it creates and only doing a complete reset of society wipes away the psychic mind rot of it. Then Eric Cartman shows up and starts bringing the socital baggage of the late 20th century back into style in a complete corruption of the morals of the survivors and the cut final boss fight heavily suggests Claus is acting as the mental and emotional conduit through which it aims its evil presence due to his fucked mental state and cruelty he was subjected to.

>Jets around on the world's only airship/casino
>In a world of swords, sorcery and technology; he kills with darts, cards, and dice
>Gives zero fucks about the Empire, Returners, or the war between them
>Sends the Impresario a letter saying he's coming to steal his bitch mid-performance and fucking DARES him to do anything about it
>Bribes the orchestra to play his theme music during the kidnapping
>Embarks on an epic, life-threatening quest solely to honor a lost bet
Setzer gets a pass because he's just that based.

world class yu-gi-oh skills

Everyone who has ever EVER played Tetris loses. Everyone. Those blocks have caused more gameovers than every other villain in this thread and every other video game villain combined.
>>
>>10941985
I got annoyed to the point of not doing this at the time, but I might do it later...
>>
>>10935162
It's never explained, just that the 4 elemental fiends summoned him back in time when you fight him at the beginning so that they'd never really die and then he sent them forward in time creating the loop where none of them really dies forever, until you go back and kill Garland as Chaos before he sends the fiends forward in time. It's a game from the 1980s. They probably weren't thinking people would care that much.
