Saxophone is reserved for Jackle in my case.

For Reala..You know, I wanna say invisi-guitar, but he's not that kind of bad guy to me....I'd say an evil, mind-controlling invisi-harp. Not like..A girly harp, though, no. >:3

I second this motion. (how can a harp be girly if it's invisible?)

I keep thinking some kind of piano, but I know ya'll're thinking 'but it's not portable!! D: '. I second the motion of the sax being exclusive to Jackle, because it's the prominent instrument in his song (well... it has its own solo-bit), and that's the same reason I think Reala's instrument of choice would be a piano. Although air guitar does have its attraction.

To be sorta-off-topic, anyone else think Wizeman would play the organ hands-down?

As it is currently Winter it means hibernating in house rather than going out a lot. <br /><br /> I should also mention that growing up playing on SEGa systems it is now my favorite game company in the whole world. The games developed by it always inspire me a lot and remind me of all those games many years ago such as Nights that I have many fond memories of. <br /><br />I also am really creative and tend to do all kinds of art such as drawings,painting and such. However, lately I have focused more on my computing course so have not done much. :)
Someone beat me to it but I would say air guitar too just like Klavier from Apollo Justice. :o

You know, I once imagined that since NiGHTS played an instrument, Reala could sing along with it :o

Otherwise I agree, air guitar.
Or a piano.

Air gituar seems like the obvious choice, but just to add variety I'll say he might play a Shakuhachi.
Yes, it's a kind of flute, but it's usually much deeper and breathier than any other flute. Usually it's played for meditational uses so it's veeeeery slow, but it can be played fairly fast for a nice sound. However they take a good amount of skill to even play.
{Here's a sample of how it sounds, accompanied by a Shamisen.

I say a lute or a small harp. I don't know it just seems right to me.

Hm. I thought that I was the only person who thinks that Jackle plays the Saxophone.

Any ways, I think that Reala would play the trumpet, french horn. or cornet because I've always seen brass instruments as being opposite to woodwinds. And since NiGHTS plays a woodwind, and they are rivals...

To me that fits Jackle a lot more :lol:

It fits his old character model a lot more though.

Hmm.. Since Reala is like the uber-manly version of NiGHTS... then he'd have to play the uber-manly version of the flute.

Which, of course, is the DIDGERIDOO.

I'd just like you to know how much this made me laugh. I'm a fanatic about aboriginal Australia. (now that I think about it, those facial markings...HMMMM...)

...isn't a didgeridoo more like a clarinet, though? More than a flute, anyway...

I'm glad it made you laugh. I went to Australia a few years back, one of the greatest experiences of my life. Not to go too far off topic...but since the didgeridoo doesn't have a reed, I think it's more like a flute.

More off-topic wading.. but didgeridoos are more like a combination of flute+clarinet.
You play them the same style you would a reeded instrument, where you purse your lips together to get that elephanty-blowy sound (best way I can think to describe it). There's a trick to playing 'em.. my buddies and I make our own didgs out of PVC. lots of fun.

Back on topic, I don't really see Reala as the type to sit down and learn an instrument. Air guitar, perhaps. Those pointy fingers would be good for plucking strings.

Yes, I can see him playing an organ especially one with huge pipes.

That's an interesting choice but wouldn't that mean that Sonic Team would try to dub in a fake Australian accent instead of a British one?

Good Point. So this leads us to the all important question: What is the British equivalent of the didgeridoo? THAT is what Reala would play.

The accordion. They can actually produce a really cool sound and I can easily imagine him producing all sorts of goth-accordion songs?

As a side note I think Jackle would play the electric kazoo and Wizeman would play the glass armonica (both are real instruments by the way).

Violin, hands down. Elegeant but with the possiblity of high extreme registers that chill the spine when played fast. Think the Devil's Trill by Tartini (the song played on Yami no Matsuei in the violin arc). Or Lestat from Queen of the Damned. Also if you've seen the movie Red Violin, you'll notice the violin's can be seductive, but seductive is not necessarily good. It's just a more sinister instrument. I find woodwinds elegant/cute/childish, brass cocky/loud/regal, percussion arrogant, strings sinister/melancholy. I was a music major in university so i can go more in depth but rather not confuse the mass :blink:

Now if Wizeman played an instrument....piano :P or just conductor as he orchestrates the baddies. Jackle has Tenor sax. Not small like an ALto, but nice and jazzy and big, but not big like a baritone.

b...bagpipes. Yeah, I know it's not British, but it's close...and I can't think of any specifically British instruments. *fail*

*is going to get her ass kicked by the UK folk*

Imagining Reala playing the invisi-didgeridoo or invisi-bagpipes are equally brain-breaking hilarious though.

I agree that a harp would probably work with Reala, but I was sort of thinking of him playing either an ocarina or even *I will get stoned to death for this* a sitar.

The violin is possibly the most evil sounding instrument if played correctly. I believe that would be perfect to suit the character.
