* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Other than the swashbuckling kidnapping attempt that kicks off the game and the performance at the end, Tantalus doesn't really seem to do much in the way of thieving ''or'' performing. They mostly loiter around various towns and occasionally show up to be useful to their old buddy Zidane.

They mostly loiter around various towns and occasionally show up to be useful to their old buddy Zidane. Mostly justified throughout the game, as both personal and global events prevent them from doing their schtick, be it finding a cure for Blank's petrification, to Lindblum getting invaded, to helping repair the city, and accompanying Cid's fleet. The fact that they're back to at least performing at the end signals a return to normalcy in the world.

Added DiffLines:

* Expy: His name is Japanese is read as Shinryu...which means that he is [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyV THAT Shinryu]], as part of this game's many callbacks to past games. VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy later confirms him to be an appearance of said recurring monster. Thus, the reference in the English version is a case of LostInTranslation.

Added DiffLines:

* BigSisterMentor: Inverted in that Eiko functions as a ''Little'' Sister Mentor to Dagger. She gives Dagger valuable emotional support when the latter is suffering from her HeroicBSOD, such as by telling her not to feel ashamed that Vivi is dealing with his issues while she still needs time to deal with hers.

* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: She is a horrid and evil monarch if there was ever one. Interestingly, it's mostly subverted with her own subjects, who are unaware of her EvilPlan and see her as TheHighQueen.

* KarmaHoudini: Considering what she did to Burmecia and Cleyra, she gets off rather lightly. On the other hand, she really is sincere in her desire to repent for what she did in Brahne's service. Plus, agreeing to fight alongside Freya results in Beatrix's first major defeat in the entire game - to the point that Blank reports that she was knocked unconscious and had to be rescued.

(Although most of the destructions were caused by the Black Mages and Brahne's eidolon, not by her or her soldiers; even though she helped her Queen.) On the other hand, she really is sincere in her desire to repent for what she did in Brahne's service. Plus, agreeing to fight alongside Freya results in Beatrix's first major defeat in the entire game - to the point that Blank reports that she was knocked unconscious and had to be rescued.

Added DiffLines:

* ThrowTheDogABone: The first two discs are basically a big TraumaCongaLine for her and she's later left OutOfFocus. The ending implies that she and Sir Fratley are together again.

* OverratedAndUnderleveled: He is the captain of the Knights of Pluto, has implied to have had war experience, and can rough up the heroes. Yet by the time he joins, he is at level one and [[CantCatchUp due to being removed from the party for awhile, lags behind everyone but Freya]]. Somewhat justified in that the Knights of Pluto are seen as incompetent boobs.

Then you learn AllThereInTheManual that he got his job after beating [[TheDreaded Beatrix]] in a fair fight and your mind breaks again.

* RedMage: After regaining her summons and getting Eiko, she shifts more to this archetype than a traditional WhiteMage, including the MasterOfNone connotations -- being neither as efficient at magical damage as Vivi nor at healing as Eiko.

With a racket equipped, she's also a decent physical attacker to boot, although nowhere near as good as Zidane, Freya, Amarant, or Steiner.
