Star Ocean 3: TtEoT is a classic PS2 RPG, one of the best for the console. The Story revolves around the protagonist Fayt Leingod. The Story starts with an alien race called the Vendeeni kidnapping Fayt’s parents and his childhood friend Sophia while they are on vacation on a resort planet named Hyda IV. Fayt escapes the attempt to kidnap his parents by taking an escape pod to another world. From the the story mostly concerns him attempting to rescue his parents and friend, until he does at by which point it is revealed that they were kidnapped in an attempt to stop the advance of powerful creatures, thought to be gods.

The story continues with revelation after revelation. It turns out that their universe is just a video game for a higher dimension of humans who created them, and that Fayt’s universe has gotten advance to the point that they can compromise the 4th dimension. So the creatures that were thought to be gods were just agents of the 4-D beings sent to delete the offending galaxies and planets. At the end of the day Fayt and his party travel to the 4th dimension and defeat the beings responsible for the attempted destruction of their universe.

Star Ocean in general in a deadly universe with universal threats, planet destroying magics, hax reality warping artifacts and big bads, as well as powerful sci fi tech; nothing changes with this installment. However being the first of the series to use the PS2’s power we get some nice cutscenes that help us powerscale and give good feats.

With the feats are given in the game, exposition, the games own dictionary, and powerscaling Fayt’s party becomes on of the most powerful and deadly RPG crew’s I’ve ever seen. Feats for the protagonists in this series include BS like hax physics defying special abilities, an entire race of people naturally fast enough to dodge lasers, a company of people who can “hack” any attribute in the known universe (if its digital), beings who can travel at and fight at FTL speeds and country-planet bust (Fayt beats many of these), and returning from none existence because they wanted to.

I’ll run through the main characters and some enemies/factions and provide as much information as possible.

The Executioners





Executioners are enemies of the universe who seek to destroy the milky way and everything in it, seemingly because civilization has advanced its technology too far. The reason they look like demons & angels is because they were sent by the creator, so their appearance understandably resembles the apocalypse.

There are three types:

proclaimers:executioners that resemble angels, these get their name because they proclaim the destruction of the galaxy. They aren’t really combat units, as such they are the weakest executioner unit. Still a single one is strong enough to stroll around moonbase unhindered by the bases heavy defenses which include large spider mechs that fire missiles.

enforcers:executioners that resemble large dragonesque winged demons, these get their name because they enforce the will of the creator, milky way’s destruction. These creatures are easily FTL in both combat and travel speed. They are capable of easily destroying planets with just a few energy blasts. They may be able to outright planet bust an unshielded world in a single shot.

convictors:executioners with a strange setup, these are smaller than enforcers, small enough to be humanoid, they wear a black cloak that covers their whole body except for one eye, which glows red with angel wings that look like they are in shadow these are like enforcers, but compressed. They are much more powerful than enforcers and require so much data space that too many of them can collapse the universe.

The Executioners are data constructs created by Luther and Sphere 211 Corporation for the purpose of destroying the milky way galaxy. As such the size of the execution has no bearing on its physical attributes.



The fight starts at when the enforcer types ambush the aquaelie during FTL travel, they fight IN FTL until a creation cannon blast wipes out most of the enforcers. The final enforcer then OHK’s aquaelie like it didnt even have the hax space time displacement shields like they all do.

Notice how the executioners shrug off the other weapons with ease. These things are normal enemies after your first encounter, and later on there is a triple threat fight involving one of these a proclaimer and a convictor against your party.



Begins at 3:06. A single shot from an executioner nearly drops earth’s shield to 35%, the next shot goes straight through the shield and destroys the planet.

Now to put a few things in context with in game dictionary infomation:

Battleship Aquaelie (Ship)

Commodore Wittcomb’s beloved flagship, from which he has successfully engaged in battle for the more than ten years since he was assigned control of Remote Station #6.Although the Aquaelie is an old model, it has been retrofitted a number of times, and performs as well as any newer ship.
With the ingenious Commodore Wittcomb at its helm, the Aquaelie has become known as one of the Federation’s most powerful battleships.

Battle-Class Ship (Ship)

The latest model of battle spaceship, used as the backbone of the Pangalactic Federation military. Since battleships are built out of carbonic neotide, which as extremely high light beam absorption characteristics, they boast stealth characteristics that are dramatically superior to those of other ship classes. Battleships are approximately 300 meters long, sport a variety of armaments such as creation cannons, phase cannons, and quantum torpedoes, and are extremely versatile. Also, battleships are designed with the capability to simultaneously fire out of multiple gun ports, for overwhelming firepower that goes beyond what one would ordinarily believe possible.
Battleships are also fully equipped from a defense standpoint, and are able to block up to 2.94 x 10-8% units of energy by using a sympathetic vibration effect between two onboard space-time displacement shields. These high-quality shields are manufactured by Ostin Manufacturing, which as the best reputation of any manufacturer in the Pangalactic
Federation.

Phase Cannon (Weapon)

A large-scale phase gun used on ships.
These cannons used to be the mainstay of ship-to-ship weaponry on Federation ships, but after more powerful antimatter cannons and creation cannons were developed, they fell out of favor. However, as phase cannons require less energy than antimatter cannons and creation cannons, and can fire rapidly, they are still used as secondary weapons on many ships.

(Phase Gunsfire a powerful beam of energy that destroys the molecular cohesion of the target’s matter through phase magnification. These are what the executioners were batting aside like pebbles.)

Creation Cannon (weapon)

The creation energy-based cannons used by ships in the Pangalactic Federation military.Since these guns use creation energy as an energy source, they are far more destructive than the antimatter cannons that used to be the mainstay of ship-to-ship weaponry. However, creation cannons are far more difficult to control. In 732 SD, the time-space displacement shield inside the battleship Tilgrem’s primary cannon malfunctioned, resulting in an explosion that annihilated an entire planet from this universe!For this reason, Federation law stipulates extremely severe restrictions regarding the use of creation cannons.

(creation cannons can easily destroy a planet except unlike the death star, nothing is left. That is what aquaelie used to destroy those enforcers)

Space-Time Displacement Shield (Technology Name)

A completely new type of force field that began to be researched when creation energy was first discovered.Unlike previous energy fields comprised of electromagnetic radiation, this field blocks energy in the fourth dimension by actually interfering with space-time itself, preventing it from conveying the energy. In other words, whereas previous shields could only block the target enemy type, space-time displacement shields actually reflect the energy into another dimension.

Energy Magnitude (Scientific Term)

A unit created to express huge amounts of energy on the universal scale, with magnitude 1 defined as the average total amount of energy emitted by a star approximately the same size as Sol in one microsecond (millionth of a second).In this notation, the amount of energy expressed goes up by a factor of one thousand with each magnitude, so the energy indicated by magnitude 9 is one septillion (10 24) times the amount of energy indicated by magnitude 1.

(That executioner blast was magnitude 4.5.)

Think I’ll try a character next.

Fayt Leingod





Fayt Leingod

An ordinary human student born on Earth who is studying in the Symbological Sciences Department of Bachtein Science University. Fayt enjoys physical activity more than studying, and was given an award for his performance at the Universal Basketball competition. Both of his parents worked and were almost never home from the time he was an infant, but this did not leave any particular emotional scars, and he grew up normally. Undoubtedly, his childhood friend Sophia had a soothing effect on his personality. Fayt himself also seems aware of this fact.

Fayt Leingod (Part 2)

In order to save the universe from the descending hand of judgment of the 4D beings, Fayt’s parents and their fellow researcher Dr. Clive Esteed gave Fayt the power of Destruction. Things have sure changed since that vacation on Hyda IV.

Destruction (Part 2) (Technology Name)

A power given to Fayt for use in the battle against the 4D beings. The power of destruction applies the physical laws of the Eternal Sphere in order to manipulate the space surrounding the user, even when it is used in 4D space. If this power were to be used inside the Eternal Sphere itself, it could actually alter the physical laws of that universe. (This is what makes Fayt dangerous, his powers are actually reality warping to cause destruction essentially making any sort of physical durability meaning less against his powers. The Eternal sphere it the name of his home universe).

Fayt learned to fight from VR RPG’s in which the person steps into a holodeck and fights monsters. His skills adapted frighteningly well to real life combat. All of fayt’s supernatural powers he learns are manifestations of his power of destruction, meaning that their effects are real (fire, ice, lightning...etc) but their damage is dealt through reality warping so there is no physical defense against them.

Throughout his journey fayt has went from running away from guns to punking enforcers in full on combat to returning from none existence (and recreating the galaxy with the help of Maria, and Sophia) by sheer force of will. He doesn’t have many feats at all but we have lore and we have feats for his most powerful foes to scale from.

Fayt is well rounded fight with access to extremely high teir elemental magic powered by his destruction ability. He also has many close combat abilities manifested through his power over destruction.

Skills:

Blade of Fury: He covers his blade in destruction energy and attacks.

Aerial: A jumping two handed sword strike.

Charge: A powerful shoulder rush.

Blazing Sword: Using the power of destruction Fayt coats his sword in fire. Deals damage to magic pools and can burn the foe.

Sidekick: self explanatory.

Shotgun Blast: Using the power of destruction Fayt creates several small explosions along the path that he waves his hand.

Air Raid: Using the power of destruction Fayt creates a powerful updraft of wind to lift up the enemy then creates downdraft to slammed them into the ground. The force of this attack causes several explosions.

Ice Blade: Using the power of destruction Fayt coats his blade in ice. Deals damage to foes magic pools and can freeze anyone he touches.

Lightning Blade: Using the power of destruction Fayt coats his blade in lightning. Deals damage to foes magic pools and has a chance to paralyze anyone touched.

Dimension Door: Using the power of destruction Fayt tears open reality and teleports. The disturbance is so bad in reality that it generates a field of deadly destruction energy.

Divine Blade: Summons an angel to coat his blade with destruction energy manifested with holy/divine properties. Deals extreme damage to a foes magic pools.

Ethereal Blast: Purest manifestation of his power. fires a beam of light that simply reality warps the target into being utterly destroyed.

Explosion: Using the power of destruction fayt summons a massive ball of fire and drops it on the enemy. Causing a large explosion.

Deep Freeze: Using the power of destruction fayt snap freezes the ground and causes damage to enemy standing on it, enemies can be snap frozen. lasts a while.

Lightning Blast: Using the power of destruction fayt fires a bolt of lightning from his hands.

Stone Rain: Using the power of destruction fayt summons a large boulder above the battlefield to rain exploding stones on his enemies.

Though fayt is likely only of human durability the foes he has defeated has shown that his combat speed is likely in the FTL range (Cliff claimed and proved himself to be at least lightspeed within the first few hours of the game), and a foes durability doesn’t matter to him. He, maria, and sophia defeated Luther who had god modded himself to be much more powerful than any of the executioners and he’s shown the potential for massive reality warping.



Fayt’s ethereal blast. The purest manifestation of his power over the universal force of destruction. He actually learns this as a spammable ability.



Fayt, Maria, and Sophia return from non existence and recreate the universe.



gameplay move exhibition.

Maria Traydor






Maria Traydor

A young and beautiful human girl born on Earth who is the leader of the anti-Federation organization Quark--a group most active in the Klaus system. She claims that she was modified with Symbological genetics into some sort of biological weapon by both Dr. Leingods, Robert and Ryoko. Furthermore, she says that Fayt is also such a weapon.It is true that both Fayt and Maria possess latent powers that are clearly more than just symbology or qigong, but at this moment, there is no way to prove that these mysterious powers are the result of the scientists' experiments, as she claims. Regardless, many people believe her earnest words, and although she is an Earthling, her impeccable integrity led the anti-Federation organization Quark to make her their leader.

Maria Traydor (Part 2)

In order to save the universe from the descending hand of judgment of the 4D beings, Maria was given the power of Alteration by the Leingods and their fellow researcher, Dr. Clive Esteed.
Maria knows the reason why, about the struggle of Dr. Leingod and his team, and about her own mission as well, but all of this is little comfort for her. The fact remains that Maria’s body was modified without her consent.

Alteration (Part 2) (Technology Name)

A power given to Maria for use in the battle against the 4D beings. The power of alteration can be used to convert any material data in the Eternal Sphere, thereby stabilizing it in 4D space. On the other hand, this power can also potentially be used to change the existential values of material in the Eternal Sphere, rendering its very existence unstable.

Maria is an excellent marksmen and as such uses handblasters in combat. She’s also no slouch in cqc either since she was trained by Mirage (A klausian like Cliff). Many of her powers are different long range laser blasts created by using her alteration powers to manipulate the blasts, or support buffs. However cut-scenes and lore show that it goes beyond this. Her power has been show to be able to buff up the strength of an attack to ridiculous levels, render objects indestructible and reflective to trauma, convert data into physical material, translate languages automatically. Her power always her to alter the physical properties of energy and matter at will, theoretically the same way she can amp properties she should be able to weaken them. Her power was part of the recreation of the universe.

Canonly Maria, Fayt, and Sophia are the one’s doing most of the fighting against the super powerful creatures like enforcers and in the cutscene after Luther’s defeat they were the only characters there implying that they were the ones who beat him.



2:20 Maria turns a simple torpedo into a one shot weapon so powerful that it simply makes the enemy go away. The other ship was obviously a battleship because it had a creation cannon. Diplo was surviving hits from a creation cannon and I’ve already posted what those can do on this thread. Maria basically OHK’d a ship made to tank shots from other ships that can fire off planet busters...
