* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In his free time, Kuja is a big fan of literature and theater. He ''purposefully'' invokes villainous tropes (such as IHaveYourWife, MacGuffinDeliveryService, and ILied) and it ''works''.

** It doesn't happen until about an hour or two into the game, but one memorable moment (which, incidentally, took place during the first instance of Zidane's leitmotif playing in the BGM) firmly establishes that Zidane isn't just a LoveableRogue, he's also [[ChivalrousPervert something else]] as well...

* ReliableTraitor: Kuja's ItsAllAboutMe attitude is exactly why Garland doesn't interfere until he's about to acquire Alexander, as that was the moment when Kuja's plans no longer fit perfectly into his goal.



* XanatosSpeedChess: Kuja is a ''master'' at this, which is rather rare compared to some [[OrcusOnHisThrone less-active villains]] of FF-series tradition. [[ReliableTraitor Garland knew Kuja was going to betray him a long time ago, and took steps to prepare for it]]. This surprises and scares the hell out of Kuja when he realizes it, and he has to completely scrap his entire EvilPlan and start from scratch. He then revises it ''again'' when presented with a SpannerInTheWorks in the form of a [[BadassAdorable little moogle]].
