If you’re asking whether some of the main characters end up together—the answer is no. However, there is romance in Octopath Traveler 2. In fact, you’ll find that many of your party members have very complex relationships. Some of them are married, pining, loved someone once upon a time, and involved in other romantic scenarios. It’s just that none of the characters end up with each other.

Aside from the fact that they come in varying ages and professions (Temenos is a Cleric, for example), Octopath Traveler 2 prides itself in the fact that it doesn’t need such a thing as romance to tie any of their stories together.

If you’ve been paying attention to some of the party dialogue (like Hikari and Throne’s), you might be curious as to whether any of these characters at least have shared endings—and if you need to make them bond for it to happen. Don’t worry too much about it, because they don’t. They’ll journeys will all cross paths, but their individual conclusions will take them to separate ones.

Of course, that is not to say they’ll remain apart. You can think of them as friends who see each other sometimes after the epilogue.
