"I'm going to kill all my friends because we are losing the war just so I can do the same thing next time"
Oh yes deficiently the hero. Kain being in All Stars has just about as much chance as Link and Mario do.
They would have all been dead dead (for good) if it wasn't for Kain's plan. He wasn't "killing" them, so much as knocking them out so they could move on to the next cycle. He knew they had no chance in this cycle, so he planned to sacrifice himself to give the other heroes a chance in the next cycle. It's is all because of Kain that the Warriors of Cosmos won. Damn straight he is the true hero.
And I never said it's likely, but your last comment is ridiculous. Mario and Link are owned by Nintendo and have never been on a PS system. Kain is owned by Square and has been on a PS system multiple times. Yeah, they have the same chances... riiiiiiiiiight.........
Lightning is a terrible character. Deal with it. Official Riku of the PASBR board.
