* {{Hypocrite}}: He chatisies Amarat for running off alone in Ispen's Castle and tells him that everyone works together as a team. Later on in Terra after learning the truth about his origins and having part of his soul sucked out, Zidane pushes everyone away and insists he needs to do things alone. [[WhatTheHellHero Amarant rightfully calls out Zidane on this]], though Zidane eventually bounces back and apologizes.

* LittleBitBeastly: His tail. Being that this title is full of such characters and races though, it isn't that noticeable. Which makes the reveal that he's a Genome much more surprising, and then you realize no one else you've met so far has had a tail like his.

* NoSell: He's out of your physical attacks' reach, and absorbs the shadow element. :That is, unless you've done the friendly enemies sidequest before fighting him, which makes physical attacks able to reach him and makes him ''vulnerable'' to shadow.

* CharacterDevelopment: With the possible exception of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Golbez]], who was actually BrainwashedAndCrazy, Kuja has the distinction of being the first and only ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' villain to undergo some personality changes and end up redeeming himself. Some FF villains, if they receive any development, usually grow worse as time passes, and in the case of Sephiroth, needed more than one game to develop. See RedemptionEqualsDeath for details.
