Marle or Leena?
« on: October 05, 2008, 03:58:47 pm »
Their personalities are very similar, and in all retrospect they seem to be the equivilants of each other for the two games (such as Frog and Glenn, Lucca and Luccia, Ayla and Leah, etc.). So, whom do you like more, Marle or Leena?

For me it'd have to be Marle.

I feel like we've already been over this...We probably went over them in the Crono v. Serge thread...Marle is outspoken & somewhat annoying...Leena is brash, abrasive & an overall d-bag...it kind of depends on which Leena you're referring to, but not by much...Not to mention...

To me, Leena was useless. I never used her. I preferred Poshul. Try a NG+ with the speed thing set to fast forward and Poshul walking around as the leader. He makes a funny noise.

Oh yeah, and speaking of Crono & Serge...there's also the fact that Marle has better taste.

I preferred Kid over the two of them. They both suck.

Yeah, but I knew almost everyone would say that and that's why I didn't include option three, "Death". Although I personally really liked Marle, don't see why everyone hates her so much. Leena, I can understand a little bit more, thank you V for reminding me of what was discussed in that topic, I pretty much helped push the whole "Leena is abusive to Serge, that's why he deals with the crap he deals with".

Forgot about that. I would've done someone else but with everyone else it's dead on obvious, this there isn't too much to go on as to which is better(without actually creating the topic). Frog would win, Lucca, the CT gang would overrall win. Now that I think of it though, who would be Kid's equivilant?

Onslaught, Schala?


Erm, I'm obviously biased a bit to Marle, but I'm also of the fan-theory that Leena is her offspring in this particular plotline. Same element, same poses, looks like a little clone of Marle basically, plus the royal-ish name...

But Leena gets points detracted because she's basically just there to make you feel bad for picking Kid, OR just another way you can treat Kid like crap. The game rewards you for that, what the heck?

I feel like a lot can be said and done with both characters, though.

Not every character has to have an equivilant, people.


(But if anyone for Kid, I'd say Toma.)

Leena. Marle's too cheery.

Leena is barely even a distinct personality...She's only got 3 unique Techs and they pretty much all suck. Marle at least had decent healing Techs, some weak, but multi-targeting, Ice Magic, and the (all but overhyped) Haste spell.

This thread gave me fits of laughter.. You ought to put some criteria for judging, or an option for an abstain vote for people who doesnt like them both..

As for me, I like Leena better, (Coastal village damsel>Tomboy princess), but obviously Marle is the more useful party member, and better company.. So now I dont know who to pick!!
