Added DiffLines:

* DubNameChange: Originally called "Orthros" in Japanese, as he and Typhon are [[ThemeNaming both named after Greek monsters]]. Later ''FF'' games have waffled on which version of the name to use, but the general rule seems to be that a monster which '''looks like''' him is Orthros, while one that actually '''is''' the ''FFVI'' character (such as the ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'' Coliseum DLC) is Ultros.

* SomeDexterityRequired: Sabin's Blitz techniques, while freed from many variables in {{Fighting Game}}s, still require pulling off ''StreetFighter''-esque input commands. However, the game is much more lenient, and not only can commands be given one button press at a time, but the more difficult ones (even the 360-motion Phantom Rush) can be performed with easy and simplified button presses.

Just remember not to [[DamnYouMuscleMemory reverse the inputs when you're attacked from the rear]].



* DiscOneNuke: When you first pick up Gau, it is possible to get him to learn Rages that include some absurdly powerful attacks for that stage of the game, such as Fire 2, Blaze, Wind Slash and Fireball. Later in the first half, he can learn spells that you don't learn until well into the 2nd half, like Quake and Gigavolt, the equivalent to Bolt3/Thundaga.

And did we mention that absolutely none of them cost MP?



* {{Nerf}}: Later ports of the game took away his ability to wear the Merit Award.



** NotTheIntendedUse: If he uses a sleeping or confused party member as a projectile, they snap back to normal!

* AnIcePerson: If Umaro has the Blizzard Orb equipped, he will sometimes attack enemies with an ice storm.

* AnIcePerson: If Umaro has the Blizzard Orb equipped, he will sometimes attack enemies with an ice storm. Also, due to being permanently equipped with the Snow Muffler, he'll absorb ice-elemental spells to restore HP.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Nerf}}: Just like Gau.


Added DiffLines:

* MrExposition: He helpfully talks with Terra and then Locke at the beginning of the game, helping to set up the Returners' conflict with the Empire.

* RequiredPartyMember: Of all the playable characters, Locke is required for the most amount of time. He has his own scenario in South Figaro where he meets Celes, and he goes with Celes again after Zozo, when he comes along to protect her during the infiltration of Vector. He also accompanies Terra to Crescent Island due to his lack of trust in the Empire [[spoiler:(which unsurprisingly turns out to be justified)]].

Finally, if you want to full explore Narshe in the World of Ruin, you need to bring Locke along to pick the doorlocks.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Sort of - compared to other Final Fantasy games (in the main series that is), it has the most characters available to name and join your crew, 14 in total. And that's only the permanent party-this game also stands out in the Final Fantasy series for the number of {{GuestStarPartyMember}}s you can control, including Wedge, Biggs, Banon, the Ghosts and General Leo.

* InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja: He's the only one in the game. Apparently that's just what you do [[spoiler:when wracked with guilt over being unable to deliver a MercyKill]].

Added DiffLines:

* DecoyProtagonist: While central to the World of Balance section, she is optional in the World of Ruin section and the story no longer revolves around her. Celes then becomes TheHero after the world is ruined. Terra does show up in the ending if not recruited however, but after the battle with Kefka.

Widely considered TheHero of the game, or at least TheProtagonist. Terra is a young girl who mysteriously has the innate ability to cast magic, the power of legends thought long vanished. The Empire controlled her using a Slave Crown and she has amnesia for much of the game, and is uncertain of what cause to fight for in a war where all sides believe she is a key asset. During the game she remembers her past and her origins- she is the child of an Esper and a human, making her a very unique creature in the world's struggle with the return of magic. She gains the ability to shift into an Esper form, but has trouble controlling it.

An Imperial General and a Magitek Knight skilled in ice magic, Celes was imprisoned for treason and held captive in the occupied South Figaro to be executed. Locke freed her and she joined the Returners, though not everyone was readily accepting of an infamous turncoat. Celes is popularly considered the secondary protagonist of the game after Terra, or at least third protagonist after Locke. In the World of Ruin, she becomes the viewpoint character for the first segment of the new world and begins PuttingTheBandBackTogether.
