Differences from the GameEdit
- Zofia castle is attacked by monsters and during Alm and Celica's reunion. No such attack occurs in the original game.
- In the manga, Tatra does not guard the floodgate. Alm instead blames Desaix for the floodgate being locked.
- Some characters don't appear: the abopve mentioned Tatra, Delthea, Luthier, the Whitewing sisters, Tatiana, Valbar, Leon, Kamui, Forsyth, Python, etc.
- Grieth appears to be working for Rudolf in the manga. No such connection is indicated in the game.
- Grieth is also capable of using magic in the manga, despite being a Dread Fighter, a sword wielding class in the game
- Sonya joins Celica and provides information on Rigel, she did not have this informative role in the original game.
- Nomah does not make any appearances in the manga, despite Celica arriving at the Temple of Mila.
- Alm is never trapped in Dragon mountain.
- Celica has premonitions of Alm's plight throughout her travels north. In both the original game and the remake she had her visions before she left Novis Monastery.
- Alm's birthmark, what persuades Zeke to join in the game, is never mentioned.
- Mila is not sealed inside the Valentian Falchion, and that Falchion is said to be older than the gods themselves. This is contrary to the game, which implies Duma created Falchion and Rudolf used it to personally seal Mila away.
- Celica and Alm face Duma alone in Duma's altar, unlike the game where both of them are accompanied by their companions.
- Juda is portrayed far more sympathetic compared to the game, being cursed by Duma, where in the game he seems to be acting of his own will.
- Sonya's sisters, Marla and Heste, were killed by this curse, though Sonya survived it and became a witch. In the game, Marla and Heste are killed in battle by Alm and Celica, acting as bosses.
- Duma and Mila both take humanoid guises when placated, and while Mila is depicted as a humanoid and angelic figure in both the original game and the remake, Duma was never given a such form.
- Duma also looks vastly different from his game appearance, being a vague ghostly figure with two eyes.
- Kliff and Deen were killed in the manga version, since Desaix stabbed Kliff in the back after Mathilda was rescued and Deen was killed by Grieth inside of Grieth's Citadel instead of Celica's army in the North Desert in the manga that Grieth was going to attack Sonya and Deen saved her life.
- Rudolf does not have facial hair in the manga version, but he has it in the game.
