** Jane is a Type A towards Neil. She busts his chops but it's clear she cares for him.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: The Phantoms are destroyed, implying that their spirits return to Gaia along with everyone else's. But only two of the main cast are still alive, with massive amounts of the population slaughtered in General Hein's ill-thought out plan. It is however implied - by the shot of the bird - that life ''will'' find a way to continue]].



* DeathIsDramatic

to:

* DeathIsDramaticDeathIsDramatic: The Phantoms killing people involves ripping their souls out and crunching them.



* DownerEnding: The Phantoms are gone, and it's vaguely implied life will return to the earth, but at the moment it's a barren, lifeless world.
** Not to mention that only two named characters are still alive (Aki and Sid), and the population has been reduced to a fraction of its former size.
** And they blew up their [[ComicallyMissingThePoint awesome space cannon]]!
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler: Hein, realizing that he was responsible for the Phantoms massacre of the New York Barrier City, drifts into space within his ship and unloads all but one of the bullets from his gun, with the intention of shooting himself. He changes his mind when his ship beeps at him for a destination, deciding to go out in a blaze of glory using the Zeus cannon]].
** [[spoiler:Jane, after Neil is killed getting the ''Black Boa'' prepped, lowers her weapon and simply waits to be killed]].

* HilariousOuttakes: Of the spoof variety, of course. Featured on the DVD.
** Even better is an EasterEgg of the characters doing Music/MichaelJackson's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gi3wV8ebogQ Thriller]]" (considering the monsters are ghosts, [[TheDeadCanDance fitting]]).

* {{Reconstruction}}: The film finds a way to justify many of the tropes associated with the Final Fantasy games. Monsters appear out of nowhere? They're invisible and can only be illuminated by bioetheric energy. Monsters can't enter cities? They have barriers to block them out. Don't get an airship until late in the game? It's confiscated by the authorities for the first two acts. The movie even puts in a way for the 'final boss' to go OneWingedAngel.

* SamusIsAGirl: Jane Proudfoot.

to:

* SamusIsAGirl: Parodied. Even before Jane Proudfoot.removes her helmet, it's quite clear that there is a female in the Deep Eyes. But Aki collectively refers to them as Gray's "men", which Jane takes issue with.


Added DiffLines:

* TokenTrio: The other three Deep Eyes. There's Neil (white guy), Ryan (black guy) and Jane (white girl).
* {{Tsundere}}:
** Jane is a Type A towards Neil. She busts his chops but it's clear she cares for him.
** Gray is a Type B towards Aki. He initially acts childish by not letting her know who he is, but acts like a nice guy throughout the rest of the film.

* MundaneMadeAwesome: One of the biggest publicity points about the film was Aki's strands of hair being individually animated -- which resulted in Aki jerking her head around wildly whenever she talked (so the animators would have plenty of chances to show her hair moving). This led to several reviewers joking about Square creating "the world's first virtual Creator/GeorgeClooney."



* NoFlowInCGI: Averted a little too well with Aki's hair.
