Well on my first play through.. I still was absolutely blind sided by the game's ending. I thought huepow was gonna be all hey I'mma prince gotta go back to my castle and do royal prince things have fun in breezegale while I am gone all alone without your grandpa maybe I'll visit. but NOoooOOo he did worse : | Huepow allowed waaayy worse to happen and so I might not ever forgive that character.
I would do horrible things to Huepow over that ending as well as Lephise xD.
I expected bad but not THAT bad.
I think it is semi predictable but maybe not entirely.
