* TheHeroine: According to WordOfGod, the game wasn't meant to have a main character, as the entire cast was given time to shine. Despite this, Terra is considered the central protagonist. She's depicted in the game's logo, and the plot revolves around her for the first half of the game. If you skip recruiting her in the World of Ruin, she still rushes to the final dungeon to take part in the ending sequence. She's effectively become the face of the game due to ''Dissidia''.

* MagicKnight: She and Celes are the only party members to learn magic naturally, her equipment draw includes swords and heavy armor, the best equipment types in the game, and her stats are all-around high.

Some spinoffs and whatnot actually tend to ''forget'' this aspect, as she's rarely shown wearing armor and sometimes a far greater emphasis is placed on her being a spellcaster.



* DefectorFromDecadence: Committed treason when she realized that Kefka planned on poisoning Doma's water supply.

* HeelFaceTurn: Before the game begins, Celes burns Maranda to the ground; she's the reason that everyone is rebuilding the town when you visit. She resigns from the Empire and is arrested for it afterwards, and after Locke rescues her in Figaro, Celes joins the Returners.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: With a possible side of [[{{Bowdlerize}} Bowdlerizing]]. While "Goddess" (''megami'', めがみ) has never really been in contention, an entire ''generation'' of fans and translators have struggled to come up with good translations for the other two, who are ''majin'' (魔神) for the blue muscly one and ''kishin'' (鬼神) for the red snake one. Neither term ''really'' has an absolute equivalent in English, and ''kishin'' in particular describes a conceptual entity that barely even exists in most western mythology - "War God" is sort of similar, but still not quite right. They're called "Fiend" and "Demon" in the Advance and iOS versions, though a lot of people note "Demon" is still not a very good translation for ''kishin''; the SNES version called them "Doom" and "Poltergeist", probably to avoid religious references (though it's been noted that "poltergeist" is actually not an awful analogy to the "ki" part of ''kishin''... it just isn't divine enough to cover the ''shin'').

* ArmCannon: If you look closely at this left hand, you can see he has a gun mounted on his arm. Oddly enough, he doesn't even have any gun related attacks.
