For the antagonist of the same name in Final fantasy Adventure and Adventures of Mana, see Julius (Adventures of Mana).


Julius is a major antagonist in Sword of Mana.

Julius is a powerful user of Dark-elemental magic. He occupies a high spot in Dark Lord's empire and is implied to be the power behind the throne. In all three games in which he appears, he turns out to be the final boss.

Story[edit | edit source]

Although Julius and Dark Lord work together and are close friends, their goals differ. While Dark Lord seeks power and revenge, Julius has designs of his own, with a great interest in Mana power.

After Dark Lord's death, It's revealed by Cibba that Julius is Vandole himself, suggesting that Julius's Shadow is the Vandole slain by the Gemma Knights years ago.

Unlike Julius of Final Fantasy Adventure, Vandole has no idea what to do with the Mana power aside from marrying the Heroine of his world.

Following his defeat, he proclaims that he'll always exist as long as Mana itself does.

Julius, or Vandol, from Sword of Mana is a sadist and a torturer. Although he doesn't appear to share Dark Lord's sincere disagreement with the Mana people's worldview, Julius appears to delight in putting the heroes in perilous ethical situations. When Medusa is killed, he taunts the Hero and Heroine, saying they are no better than him.
