So I just got Richard in my Suikoden 5 replay. And he's never leaving my party again. That poor guy, he would have totally won the Sacred Games if he hadn't been drugged in the first round. I had forgot that little detail about why he was in the Waterfall Basin to begin with.

It's just, not only is Richard hands down the most powerful melee character (I won't say "the most powerful character" because Zerase exists and, well...) but you get him at level 44. Belcoot comes to you at level 36, and he was winning the Games with no struggle. With so many bad-ass competitors, it's no wonder Gizel had to resort to drugging them. (Especially since Childerich probably the lamest character in the game. Him beat Richard or Belcoot? Pfft.)

It's funny, though. Richard is definitely the strongest melee character in the game and I would say he'd probably beat out everyone in the other games, too (I can't really think of a stronger fighter right now. Maybe Valeria or Viktor?) But he doesn't realize it! He's so clueless, he's never really been trained. I think Mueller just sort of looks at Richard in a sort of paternal despair and sends him off to keep his silly little head occupied until he's needed whenever Richard asks him for training.

What would Lym's marriage to Richard have looked like? XD I imagine they would have been delightfully clueless with each other. Richard probably would have run out of their marriage night (assuming they waited for marriage until Lymsleia was old enough to consummate) saying something along the lines of "AHHH, girlparts! Mueller what do I do??"
