This episode’s cliche is about faux party members and having to choose between party members: but it’s really about setting up a lesbian couple that really needs to appear again. The part is introduced to The Valkyrie and The Hunter, both of which really want to join even though there is only room for one.Thus begins a trial of each trying to prove they are the better member for the party.
This trope in particular doesn’t really happen. You won’t find many candidates who are trying to compete for your party, though there are some games where you can recruit some characters but not others (an example is Star Ocean: Till the End of Time). You’re not going to find this trope in an RPG as often as you’ll find this in the magic of trying to ensure boobie times.
That’s what this one is guys: boobie times. Can I even chagrin this? Valkyrie and Hunter eventually decide they have to fight each other to prove their skills and their do so in such a sexual way they basically decide to go off and be lesbians. While the main characters don’t seem to be into each other sexually, Valkyrie and Huntress are probably going to be ‘fighting’ each other every night.
But really, can we blame them? I sure don’t. Daaaaamn.
