Turns out the "Times are tough" guy was recruitable after all. They just missed that you could go back and pick him up after some plot progression.

Alternatively, there are no missing party members.
The island Sydney and Plum are on is just over Skuuba. (labled Thkuuba on the map) Syd, (but not Plum,) could have rejoined this group, if he had checked the water rather than waiting out the timer. ^_^

I enjoyed these.

The TaT Guy is my top contender too 😎

Normally you are supposed to have a full crew but the HD re-release has a glitch where the party gets split.

This, but with a twist. Galgarion was added as an optional character, which is supposed to happen at a different point in time. The party splitup is coded to happen when he joins.
With unexpected conditions, he's been recruited now... leading to the out-of-place dialogue.

Straw and Blue Berry, from 307! Class is "aide," and they don't have much use unless both are in the party. They have an amazing combo skill.
Hero could have picked them up if he didn't rush off to combat.

Popsicle is recruitable, but requires focusing on Rabble Rouser's subplots which Jim is clearly not doing.

Oh! Way back in the beginning of the game, there was a third, optional character the devs included named Gong um... Bong. He was a sturdy monk cleric with solid offense, defense and a healing ability. Early game, he acted as kind of an "Easy Mode" for beginners but required a bit of thinking to acquire, making him paradoxically more of a reward for advanced players. By this point in the game, Bong doesn't make a huge difference, apart from (potentially) being another well-leveled PC you could use in place of someone else.

Getting Bong required speaking to Jogurt I mean Gohgurht, a hamster gerbil with a massive helmet grimoire. This then sets up a chance later on to add Gohgurht to the party, but Gohgurht is just a joke character: minimal stats across the board, and even though it lugs around a spellbook, it has no spells or special abilities. If you manage to level it up, you get the message "Um... dude? S'joke." and Gohgurht doesn't actually level up.

XD XD XD I get and appreciate this joke. Shining Force was one of my favorite games as a kid and I loved the remake.

The same secret Agent dude the team from Adventure comics missed.

I thought of the Adventures! Characters, but this is even better.
Does anyone know how the crossover ended? 320-324 is missing out of the copy here.

(The RpgWorld part of the story starts here.)

Shouldn't have walked past all those sidequests in the town. But since they were all so easy to just skip I'm sure anyone they would have met would only be a temporary party member for this area.

The answer is obvious.

If they had fought Olaf the Unspeakable, he would have joined the party, eventually allowing you to get Aka to join as well. As the group didn't fight Olaf, he harbored the resentment that made him and Aka a boss later on.

You can hatch another non-plot-relevant Dragobo at the ranch as an optional, game breaking character.

well they skipped all of the side quests. there was almost certainly a barbarian or fighter with anger issues that would have joined the party for this part of the story.

There's a secret party member that can only be unlocked if Detestai (yes, her specifically) stands on one of two spaces in the desert, away from any major point of interest. He's pretty awesome, but has next to no impact in the story, aside from a heartbreaking reveal before the final dungeon in the sequel.

It's the idea of some aquatic version of Yuffie just chilling in a bush somewhere in the city waiting to be found and steal things.


I really needed that image right now.

A Skuuba puffer fish version of her named Puffie
10.7.2019, 12:24 PM
...which would unlock two bards named Ami Jane and Yumi Sue?

Yes. Yes I am taking a perfectly good joke and forcing it to stretch into something horrible. I am a terrible, terrible person. ;)

Man, now I want this.
