* LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards: Not so much in level progression, but the Focus skill means he can reach [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill extremely]] [[ForMassiveDamage high damage]] even with beginner spells.

Added DiffLines:

* WalkingSpoiler: Before the player even has a grasp of the plot, it's clear that she is a major villain due to [[ObviouslyEvil her appearance]]. This may have been intended to have been the disc 1 twist as well.

* HeroicBSOD: After Alexandria's destruction. It's so severe that it renders her completely mute, and even interferes with her ability to use magic in battle. (See TemporaryScrappy below.)

* TemporaryScrappy: During a large chunk of disc Three, she loses her voice, meaning she has about a 50% chance of successfully using her magic. However, if you equip her with the Healer skill, all of her attacks will heal you for a decent amount of HP.

* FantasyCharacterClasses: Combination of [[BareFistedMonk the Monk]] and [[InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja the Ninja]], and despite the general versatility drop that usually accompanies RedMage classes in a Final Fantasy game, Amarant's diverse uses just make him that much more viable as the other characters drift into CripplingOverspecialization.

Added DiffLines:

* SpannerInTheWorks: Despite all the mess that was finding out Garnet wanted to be kidnapped during the play and how she basically inserted herself into said play by accident and managed to fool everyone she was acting (while still wearing the White Mage robes to cover her face), in comes Vivi being chased by guards and sets Garnet's robes on fire by accident. Cue OhCrap by everyone as hell breaks loose and they are forced to crash land into Evil Forest instead of reaching Lindblum directly...


Added DiffLines:

* IfItsYouItsOkay: His undying respect for "Master" Vivi convinces him to go along with Zidane's antics if Vivi suggests him to go along with Zidane's plans.

Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: Shares a lot in common with [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Cecil Harvey]] and is likely a nod to the character. Like with Cecil, she is a paladin and swears to protect those she holds dear. She follows orders from the Queen without question and then starts to doubt her once she sees how genocidal she has become. After her FaceHeelTurn, she does everything she can to make amends for her actions.

Added DiffLines:

* HopelessBossFight: Inverted with the second fight against Black Waltz 3. It will never attack Garnet, but unlike Black Waltz 2, rather then putting her to sleep, Black Waltz 3 will just attack itself if the rest of the party is defeated, leading to his own defeat.

* {{Badass}}: A Burmecian Dragon Knight who is the most likely to win the Festival of the Hunt. She's tough as nails.



* {{Badass}}: She kicks your ass in not one, but ''three'' {{Hopeless Boss Fight}}s, and has an exclusive skillset consisting of powerful White Magic including [[HolyHandGrenade Holy]], and several powerful sword attacks.



* {{Badass}}: His power is quickly demonstrated when he arrives. He cuts down three black mages with a single swipe of his spear before they get off one spell.

to:

* TheChewToy: The game punishes him ''a lot'', and it's hilarious.but most of it is pre-CharacterDevelopment. After he starts to wise up about the world, [[ThrowTheDogABone he gets a few bones thrown his way]].



* DumbMuscle: He's not too bright [[note]] (but he's not exactly ''stupid'' either, he's mainly lacking in {{Street Smart}}s and worldly experience)[[/note]], and Creator/YoshitakaAmano's original designs show that he's a pretty muscular guy. Keep in mind that [[{{Determinator}} he's strong enough to run around in that heavy armor]] (even running ahead of Zidane while carrying Garnet out of Evil Forest) and only be winded at one point early on in the game.

* ArtificialHuman: Garland created him to be an angel of death.
* AwfulTruth: The revelation of his Antichrist origins and his inability to stop Garland when they meet hits him hard.
* BadassBoast: I AM the new Angel of Death! Yours!
* BelatedLoveEpiphany: Zidane only realizes that he loves Garnet after she is crowned queen (and thus becomes unaccessible for him). Before that, he's all playful and flirting but doesn't think it's for real.

* CulturedWarrior: Because he's not just a warrior, and no, he's not just a warrior and a thief either. He's a warrior, he's a thief, and he's quite a good ''actor!'' And possibly a musician as well, considering how much he knows about music.
