Mine was the Chess Battle from SF2 and the Laser Eye from SF1. Haven't decided on what my favorite battle is from SF3 so I'll work on it. Hope there are some futuristic robots and ninjas for me to fight in the later Scenarios so can't wait till I reach the later portions of Scenario 2 and Scenario 3. Also, going to work on my favorite characters for SF3. Same for SFCD, and Final Conflict so I'll just start with the first 2.
The Chess Battle shows how similar Shining Force series is to Chess. As for the Laser Eye, it's a pain to traverse through, but man I love this moment in the game. The ancient technologies the forces of darkness are using are pretty advanced and futuristic cybernetic robots shooting lasers XD.
My favorite characters in SF1 is Jogurt (LOL no). But seriously, my favorites are Domingo, Tao, Hanzou, Bleu, Zylo, Arthur, Musashi, and last but not least Max.
My favorite characters in SF2 is Kiwi (seriously?). *Sigh*, my favorites are Slade, Kazin, Peter, Luke, Claude, Zynk, Lemon, Tyrin, Karna, Sheela, Frayja, and Bowie.
For SFCD, Book 1
I liked the end of the battle at Chapter 2 where you found out your main character was a Prince. A decent plot twist battle. Plus, I liked the battle where Nick and his forces have to fight Edmund. This battle really made me question whether Nick did the right thing here killing his uncle. As for Book 2
, I liked the battle where Woldol, the antagonist from Book 1, comes back from the dead and seeks revenge and the Laser Statue Battle similar to Laser Eye from SF1. My favorite battle from Book 3
, is definitely the Shinobi Battle and the Shadow Battle. The Shinobi Battle cause it's quite an out of place battle if you ask me lol and the Shadow Battle because it's unique and just goes to show that SF3 definitely has taken lessons from SFCD based on these two battles from Book 3 instead of the first two games.
My favorite characters from SFCD includes Nick, Deanna (2nd best), Natasha, Wendy, Domingo, Amigo, Hanzou/Higins, Claude, Cray, Sarah, and Mayfair.
My favorite battle in Shining Force: Final Conflict (SF:FC) is definitely Battle #20 where you fight Max taking in Kane's role from SF1 which is awesome although I don't like how super weak he is (45 HP!?!?!?! LOL is this a joke?). It's probably the only memorable moment in the game I can think of since SF:FC doesn't have that much going in other than to tie in the plotholes of the previous entries in the SF series.
My favorite characters from SF:FC is Ruburan, Ian, Sasuke, Cynthia, Hawel, Kiddo, Julia, Eric, Sylvia, Morton, and last but not least Max. I love flying characters in this game as their defenses are just as good as Claude from SFCD. What are your favorite characters and battles in the entire Shining Force series?
Edit: Just fixing my grammar. Added my favorite battles and characters in SFCD. Currently, added in my favorite battle and characters in Shining Force: Final Conflict.
