It's a series, and they're franchise characters, so I have no qualms with having them as cameos/GETTING IN MAH PARTY :P

Some people may somewhat hate me for saying this BuuuuT~
I’m fine a lot of the time with characters getting no development.
I love Laharl as a mean self centered “BRAT“.

I don’t want him to ever become to much more kind & nice.
To be honest I love seeing him trying to Nuke a planet! :D
Burn Baby BURN!

Disgaea could use little more Mean characters if you ask me.
Isn’t this the netherworld?! Why is it all the stories only based around Love, kindness
& Heroes every game?! Come on man… I can understand why Characters like Flonne
where like that, she was a angel! And I can understand why human
characters were like that too somewhat. But I notice there are tons of the demon characters
are crazy about Love/heroes too… Err what? They call these places netherworlds??
They are hardly Evil at all if you ask me.

This is the netherworld right? Where the guy talking in the start always says:
This is the netherworld… A place full of evil and no love, Bha bha bhaa.

Most of the demons are just only brats or lazy good for nothings.
And they always give most of the main characters reasons to be brats…
I always found giving them much of a reason odd...
I was under the idea Demons in this story were just suppose to be born
mischievous? like it's just how their community is. But whatever.

But I guess I can’t expect anything more from a light hearted story made so
Somewhat young kids can play it too. *mew

But still I just enjoy seeing a story with characters I know and love.
I don’t need or want over half the time to see the characters change much.
If Laharl became a nice boy… I’d stop liking him. End of story.

It should be known I mostly Like the funny bratty characters best most of the time...
Laharl
Zetta
Pram
Asagi
Gig
Axel
Marona
Flonne
Raspberyl
Prinny
Baal
And I think Desco…
And err… I don’t know… there are so many I like.
Ok some of them characters were nice characters.. :D
Well Ok… I like more then one type of thing…
But anyways…

I don’t need tons of character development in my stories…
Maybe it’s because I love wacky comedies and Old cartoons like
Loony-Toons, The adventures of Sonic the hedgehog,
And some newer shows like, Arakawa Under the Bridge & other crazy as possible anime.

But mostly I enjoy light hearted stories full of crazy comedy
that’s not to of a story deep. If it was me. I’d take out even more
of the serious side of the disgaea stories…

But point is, I play disgaea for wacky comedy and cute character designs.
Also I’ve never cared much for most character growth centered stories…
Some are fine but I dislike over half I see.

Err… Think I kinda ranting on about, I’m not sure anymore… xD
But anyways (>.>)

WOOT~ Laharl, Flonne & Etna FTW~
Keep them lovely crazy kids in meh games forever! (^-^)

... I get the feeling you've missed the entire point of these games, especially the first one. The "real" evil characters were the humans, and that was an important point it wanted to make.

Yet you go on about them not being evil enough there. They're not supposed to be "evil".

In any case, development or no, I think it would just be nice to see less of them so other characters can have a turn to be in the games. They can always be DLC.

Neh none of the other character could ever hope to be cool as Laharl~
well maybe Zetta... :0

Them other less impotent characters can be DLC like they have been :P
MHaaHahaaha!
Just kidding somewhat. we all like who we like.
So I see why some people would like to see their faves over someone they don't like as much.
problem is Laharl and friends are like the mascot for Disgaea.
so they'll more then likely always be there.

And I think your mixing up what I saw the point in the story was,
with what I wish the story was like~

The only humans that preform antagonistic actions (Gordon, Kurtis, and Carter) were tricked by their superiors or were redeemed by the end, except for Carter and even he only attacked the netherworld because he wanted to save his planet, though he went off the deep end in attempting to do so.

And as for demons, though most of them are not evil, the majority of them are power-driven anti-heroes. They will especially take up any chance for a fight - even kindly folks like
Spoiler:
Adell, who was raised as a human and thus avoided the "be mean" social conditioning of netherworld demons.

The thing about that is, while the three of them are hugely popular and would potentially bring in a lot of money from people paying for them, there's also the chance that because they are so popular, people become enraged BECAUSE they are such staples to the cameo roster being left out and requiring extra money.

But, it could be argued either way, really.

A good point. Honestly, while I AM tired of them, I don't mind them being cameos so long as they don't get shoved into the story over and over.

Well I think the Prinny has that covered. I don't really consider them to be the mascots.

Yeah, the Prinny would be Disgaea/N1's mascot. Laharl is just... the main character of the first game and a guy that keeps on showing up despite all odds. Nothing more or less.

despite all odds?
Hardly. Last I remember and I don't think it has changed from last i've heard and saw it.
on the most popular character list is Laharl right on top at #1.
Laharl gets cameo in even non Disgaea games a lot.
Z.H.P anyone?

Duh they are gonna cameo the most popular character.
if not, It be like Disney without Micky mouse~
pure fail.

I'm saying it right now.
Any disgaea without Laharl is a Disgaea I won't be buying.

And to me, Both Prinny and Laharl are the Mascots~

How about No?
Your not the boss of me punk.
And besides it's off topic.

and you find me annoying? Then hate me all you want.
I'm getting sick of how some of you people on this forum
going out of your way and off-topic to tell me i annoy you.

I'll talk how i want to, end of story.
*mew

Now Back on topic.
Laharl Etna and Flonne have a Really big fan base.
even more so in japan then here. They'll make whats popular.
and it's not fair to people who like them to say they should not have them in.
I have lots of characters I don't like but I don't go around saying
They should not be put in the game as I know someone else may like them.
Like how I dislike Val... being I hate all Vampire characters of any type.
But I would never say to someone he should not be put in the games.
