>Game makes you fight your teammate with all their current stats and equipment
I don't play a lot of RPGs, but only example I can think of is
>New game+ has you maintain your current level
>Every enemy in the game jumps up 30 levels
>tfw dling the latest episode that aired earlier today
>Still walking around and fighting perfectly fine as if you were at full health
I don't have any IAS gifs, but I guess the one where Charlie pulls some of his teeth out would fit pretty well.
>100 hour game
>Partner leaves with an item needed to beat the game
>You can't get it back
>final boss is your character from the first playthrough
>still has all his equipment and skills
I know you're referring to turn based style games doing this, but does anyone remember the final 4 bosses of Ninja Gaiden II back to back with no restoration items at all? There was no other choice than getting good and becoming a ninja yourself.
>Game makes you fight your teammates
>They suddenly have better stats and skills
>Lose those stats and skills after you beat them
I've been meaning to go back to this, now that I'm not quite as shit at video games. I beat it when it came out, but got the achievement for dying 150 times about halfway through the game.
and that was on normal mode
