I know killing Senators in Disgaea 4 drops their affinity for you, but how much in absolute terms? They have a "Loathe" to "Love" scale but there's no numerical value presented in game so it's hard to tell.

Specifically, how many items do I have to give them to make up for killing them once? Will one "Must Have" item do it or does it tick them off more/less than that? I'm trying to decide if it's ever worth killing senators or if I should wait until I can bribe them.

Game tag added. And I'm going to go out on a limb here and say "killing people makes them like you less." :P – Raven Dreamer Mar 1 '12 at 16:33
I'll take "Questions that get you on an FBI watch list" for $200. – SaintWacko Mar 1 '12 at 17:21
"Dear Diary: Today was a bad day. I got killed again! Fortunately I was able to screw over the public with SOPA and that made me feel a bit better. I've sent the killer a link to my Amazon wishlist; hopefully we can put this nasty murder business behind us." – Matthew Read Mar 1 '12 at 18:03
@MatthewRead you laugh but that is exactly how the Senate in Disgaea works – Ben Brocka Mar 1 '12 at 18:06
From what I read in this thread it seems like different senators like different things, but in general they like shoes, glasses, orbs, muscles, angel cake and gold bars? – Gwen Mar 1 '12 at 20:37

Not 100% sure on Disgaea 4, but they have been the same for Disgaea 2 and 3, so I'll go off that as it shouldn't have changed much.

There really is no value set on it and there are even levels within the ranks themselves, by this I mean 1 item will not 100% set them from Strongly for to love, but if we DID give them numeric values for the argument of this question, I'll try to illustrate below how killing would effect.

Say a senator has 500 rep points, a slightly interested item would be worth 10, interested would be worth 25, very interested would be worth 50, must have! would be worth 100, and not very interested or doesn't want would change in values depending on just how much they don't want it.

Killing would probably be around -200 / -250. If a senator loves you, and you kill him, he probably won't loathe you, but he'll most likely drop to around neutral / barely positive, which will take 2-3 or maybe even 4 must have items to make up in the long run.

Overall through my experience, never kill senators unless you're going for one those suggestions that has a 1-20% chance of success, anything higher than that I just save my game try it, if it fails, I reset and try again, but if it has extremely low chances I will bribe as many as I can and kill the rest, usually it doesn't have an overwhelming aftermath.

Hey, @Fatboi, I've edited your answer to be a little more readable. Remember, whitespace and punctuation can help immensely. – Frank Jul 18 '12 at 19:23
