Shining Force

Written in 1999


Adam

RBT / CYBG

Comes into the game much too late.


Alef

MAGE / WIZ

Comes very late in the game, but with a bit of training, she can get a real powerful BOLT - spell.


Amon

BDMN / SKWR

Same as Balbaroy, I don't like them but they could be good.


Anri

MAGE / WIZ

A "must-be-in-the-group" character due to her powerful FREEZE - spell (Did you ever see her like in the icon to the left? Her Bikini can be found near the Laser-Eye bridge in the remake. Get it on the bridge in the original game.)


Arthur

KNT / PLDN

Worst as a Knight, but really good as a Mage (learns BLAZE, BOLT and FREEZE).)


Balbaroy

BDMN / SKWR

Well, I personally don't like the birdmen too much... But some friends told me that Balbaroy can be very powerful if you train him.


Bleu

DRGN

If you can train him, he's the most powerful character in the game after Zylo.


Diane

ARCH / BWNT

Not such a coward as Hans. Diane has better attack and defense abilities than Hans. Later on, however, she does not seem to progress in stats as much.


Domingo

MGCR

The Egghead with the magic abilities. A "must be in troop" character. The enemies choose rather him than Max to attackm so he really is a good lure.


Earnest

KNT / PLDN

Well, not really bad, not really good. Put him in staff if you have one person who is too bad to fight or you just like his badass looks.


Gong

MNK / MMNK

He has limited healing abilities due to the fact he doesn't get too much MP. If you need a healer who has a good attack, take him in.


Gort

WARR / GLDT

His attack and defense abilities are very, very good but he won't get too much hitpoints so he's very sensitive to magic attacks. His limited move makes it difficult to keep him leveled up.


Guntz

STKN / STBN

He has a good attack and a good defense, but with his limited move, you can hardly train him.


Hans

ARCH / BWNT

Sticks with you at the beginning. Good archer, but lacks in comparison to Diane. Exchange him with her later.


Hanzou

NINJ

Secret Character with very good stats (if you like Ninjas). In the original game, read the sign at the beginning of Chapter 8 in the town. In the remake, read all signs in Waral in Chapter 5.


Ken

KNT / PLDN

A centaur with a strange name, he is a pretty good fighter with low defense but much HP.


Khris

HEAL / VICR

Healer you get very early on. Has good healing abilities and can also whack enemies. Good character in your team. To get her dolls dress, search the quarry in the bustoke mines.


Kokichi

WKNT / SKBN

A cool, yet a tad useless character. Speak to him in chapter 3 to get him.


Lowe

HEAL / VICR

The healer you get in your initial group. Has good healing abilities and can attack too later on.


Luke

WARR / GLDT

Another guy from your basic troop. He is not a bad fighter, but worse than Gort. If you have the chance to change members, exchange him with a better character. Has a highly limited move.


Lyle

ASKT / STKT

Seems to be a weak character after you got him (due to his low defense), but after his promotion, he is one of the mightiest fighters in your troop.


Mae

KNT / PLDN

You get her early in the game. Most of the SF gamers dislike her due to her weak attack power, but she is the centaur with the highest defense. Seems to be in love with Max.


Max

SDMN / HERO

He is a good fighter, but you can't really choose to have him or not. So be happy that he's a competent lad and stick with him.


Musashi

SMR

Secret character in chapter 7. Read the notice on the double-house in the middle of the city and you'll find him in headquarters. To get him in the remake, read all signs in Rudo.


Pelle

KNT / PLDN

The knight with the strongest attack. Defense is like the one of Ken and Hitpoints are like Mae.


Tao

MAGE / WIZ

A real good one! Her BLAZE burns all Monsters easily. S. Mistugi-Dress is to be found in the Bustoke Mines in the original game, while you have to collect all cards to get it in the remake.


Torasu

HEAL / VICR

A good healer you get late in the game. He is the only one who can master AURA, but you need to train him.


Vankar

KNT / PLDN

A weak and somehow useless knight.


Yoghurt

YGRT

A mascot. Named Yoghurt.


Zylo

WFMN / WFBN

Good attack power and strong defense. He rocks!


Mawlock (Remake only)

Card Master

Interesting Character, especially when it comes to imitating stronger characters to strenghten your force.


Zuika (Remake only)

Insect Knight

Interesting counterpart to Zylo. Quite strong and does counterattacks quite frequently.


Narsha (Remake only)

Shaman

A great and likeable character. You'll love her Attack-Spell!
