    I'm sure you know who Illua is, and you must have known her job is "Nightshade"

    Since Ewen is a "Nightfall", which is cool, his boss should be "Night-something" too, as they're both assassins and that idea is cool

    The problem is there's this little guy with tomato-head. That's right, meet our lovely Deadly Nightshade

    And thus, I wonder why Illua's job is Nightshade, since the Deadly Nightshade is not deadly at all, how powerful can a regular Nightshade could be?

    LoL, can't they use Nightblade or something? It sure makes one wonder [​IMG]

    Isn't nightshade a class of vegetables that potatoes belong to?

    Night Shade is a ghost-type move that inflicts damage equal to the user's level.

    A deadly nightshade is actually a plant -- a fruit-bearing plant, moreover, referred to as a belladonna. The leaves, roots, and berry are all toxic. They do not resemble tomatoes at all, assuming that you know that tomatoes are red, not black.

    That's the general idea of a deadly nightshade, an incorrect title given to the Tomato monsters. I guess they were running out of ideas that made any sense.

    Nightshade, however, are applied to a family of plants that have toxic parts. It would make sense for Illua's part attributing to her character, albeit that they're comparing a damned swordswoman to a toxic plant. Furthermore, none of her skills actually inflict a form of poison.

    In the future it would be nice if people stated what game they were speaking of in the title or otherwise.

    Interesting observations.. never put much thought to it but I sort of see where you're coming from.. Nightblade sounds cool, but they already have Spellblade!.. Totally didn't know about the toxic plant thing, I was wondering for the longest time why they'd even name it a Deadly Nightshade (yes it made me think of Pokemon too lol)

    Well if it's SE not Square Enix, and FFTA2 isn't there only game if I even ARRIVED at that conclusion, what the hell would make you think that's 'obvious'?

    They were called Deadly Nightshades in FF12 aswell so they were just following their naming, perhaps you should try find out what their japanese counterpart is named?
    Maybe it turns out they are the same?

    As for Illua and toxin, she does use poisons for assassinations supposedly, confirmed by Cid, but other than that she probably just relies on broken time and dimension moves >.>

    Nowhere did I mention that it was "obvious" -- but people who are familiar with FFTA2 would at least be able to recognize Ewen and Illua, and the mention of jobs is a little clue too. However, in no way did I mean to undermine your intelligence and I'm sorry if my message came across as that. I just found it strange how you were making a seemingly critical comment about mentioning the game title when it's not really needed, and if someone had to ask what the game was, they wouldn't understand the thread anyway.

    Eyerolling is synonymous with sarcastic obviousness.

    You're right you didn't, it's just that that's what eye rolling generally means, although you might not have meant it in that way.

    For the most part, it was just confusing since I haven't played FFTA2 :/

    Tomatoes are so deadly, that they were kicked out of vegetable-hood, and became fruits (badass).

    Oh, wow, I can't believe I missed that. I forgot that little conversation.

    Her Dimension skills are incredibly harsh. It's worse than Graviga. I'm just glad it's not like a Withering Strike or Viola sort of skill, because then I'd really be dead.

    its not SE, its fault of localization team who are probably too lazy to find "game-ish" translation for Japanese words.

    Tomatoes are both fruits and vegetables.

    It's important to learn such things in a world where having a small garden in your backyard can lower your vegetable-wasting-money by around 50%.

    The fruit has more to do with the actual way the fruit is, whereas the vegetable has to do with how it grows. A lot of people make the common misconception that something can't be both, but it's a falsity.
