    • TRIVIA (6)

      • Wanted!
        Lina's poster has a 500,000 gold reward. Gourry and Zelgadis also have wanted posters but it doesn't show the reward value.

      • Amelia's incantation before fire ball:

        Amelia: Source of all power, crimson fire, burning bright. Let thy power gather within my hand. FIRE BALL!

      • Vrumugun casts Freeze Arrow which can cancel out Flare Arrow.
        Zangulus has the demonic Howling Sword a green sonic blast that can slice through swords and knock back opponents.

      • The Monkey King
        In the Monkey King / Journey to the West legends, Sun Wukong gets a headband that if he tried to remove, it would get tighter.

        Lina immediately mentions "like The Monkey King" when she hears how she has a similar circlet that will shock her. So Lina is familiar with that legend despite being in a different fantasy world.

      • Character Debut: Zangulus and Vrumugun
        Zangulus is a bounty hunter with dark hair. He wears a green cloak and a sombrero like hat.
        Vrumugun the sorcerer wears a dark blue hooded cloak and a gem on his forehead.

      • Bounty: The Amature Avengers

        Several groups go after Lina and Gourry (for the bounty and/or the honor): the Black Iton Knights, the Silver Knights, the "great warriors" from Edoh, four unnamed groups, and Amelia.

    • QUOTES (10)

      • Lina: Amelia! You are a total nutcase!
        Amelia: I knew it, Miss Lina! You're the good guy! I knew it all along.
        Lina: I seem to remember a slightly different opinion.

      • Amelia: Lina Inverse! Nefarious villan! If you continue to compound your crimes, prepare to fight me as well.
        Lina: Amelia...Would you get a clue?! They're the bad guys! They made up all that stuff about us!
        Amelia: But they told me that you and Gourry are really the bad guys.
        Lina: Amelia, think for a second! Who looks like a bad guy here? Heh?
        Amelia: Hmm...Both of you.

      • Gourry: Is there anything you can do about the shocks?
        Lina: Yeah, I could just deal with it.

      • Amelia: I suspected all along. Miss Lina... You're a bad guy, aren't you?
        Lina: I...umm...(stutters)... Well, I haven't done anything that bad for a while!... I think.
        Gourry: I'd sure like to know what you mean by "bad" then.
        Amelia: Yes, and how long is "for a while?"

      • Lina: Lighten up, guys. Lightningbolt!

      • Lina: Phil, what do you say we go to your place for a little lunch, then a banquet tomorrow...
        Phil: Miss Lina, it's a castle, not a restaurant.

      • Lina: Compared to what my big sister used to put me through, that was a piece of cake! Come on! Let's go Gourry!
        Gourry: Lina, I didn't know you had a sister.
        Lina: Oh, didn't I tell you?

      • (Lina is holding a dozen ice cream cones)
        Gourry: You're gonna get fat!
        Lina: Mind your own business.
        Gourry: Can I have one?
        Lina: No way!

      • Gourry: (emerging from under rubble) That hit me like a ton of bricks.

      • Lina: As long as we keep beating all these amateur avengers, sooner or later the big boss will have to come after us himself.
        Gourry: Oh great. Don't you know how to give a guy a break?
        Lina: (makes several absurd karate poses) Give a guy a break and you'll end up broken.
        Gourry: What's that mean?
        Lina: I have no idea.
