Added DiffLines:

* BreakTheCutie: Only exclusively on Claude's scenario, when Leon found out that he's possibly the SoleSurvivor after the destruction of Lacuer's Hope, and his parents nowhere to be seen, he completely drops his InsufferableGenius manner and starts bawling like he's a kid left all alone in the world and started wishing that he should have died instead. Took Claude to [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan slap him and telling him to place his hope somewhere else to calm him down]].

* AdaptationalWimp: Rena in the games have a lot of spunk for a WhiteMagicianGirl and she's known a good deal of hand to hand combat which explains how she chose knuckles as her melee weapon of choice, and eventually knows some offensive spells. In the manga adaptation, her offensive spells are gone, but at the very least, some of her hand to hand combat traits is retained. In the ''EX'' anime, Rena not only doesn't have offensive spells, she's even more inefficient in close combat.



* BoundAndGagged: During a {{Filler}} episode in the anime (not even in the manga, which the anime is based on) where the party got shipwrecked into an island infested with ghosts from a ghost ship, Celine ends up being captured, tied up, gagged and eventually put on an UnwillingSuspension. JustifiedTrope since she'd use her mouth for spell incantations, and [[LadyOfBlackMagic her getup]] would've been the cue for the ghosts to silence her.



* TalkingIsAFreeAction: In the anime, the surrounding tends to ignore her spell incantation, except during the Marze arc, where the enemy inflicts her with Silence in the middle of incantation.
* VerbalTic: In games, she tends to put 'darling' in her sentences.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Bugs. But this is only in the ''EX'' anime for Celine-exclusive comedic gags, in other versions, she has no say about bugs.



* AmazonChaser: In the anime at least, Ashton's dragons like a woman who can fight (ie. Opera with a rocket launcher). Averted with him, though, since he has more of a thing for [[TheCutie Precis]] in both the game and anime.

* BadassBaritone: His voice in every versions is considerably lower than the rest of the team, and he's acknowledged as one of the biggest {{Badass}}es in the party.



* CrutchCharacter: In Rena's scenario. Mega powerful when he's just with Rena, but Claude will surpass him once he joins for good.

* CrutchCharacter: In Rena's scenario. Mega powerful when he's just with Rena, but Claude will surpass him once he joins for good.good due to Claude's Killer Moves likely to hit more. May be subverted, due to having some techniques that have high accuracy (Air Slash) and speed to interrupt things and him having some options to break the damage limit, making Dias still very viable even at the end of the game or against [[BonusBoss Gabriel Celeste or Iselia Queen]].


Added DiffLines:

* MasterSwordsman: He's a sword expert and wields his sword like an IaijutsuPractitioner.

* CynicismCatalyst: Seeing his parents and younger sister murdered by bandits.



* [[CatGirl Cat Boy]]: A felpool for no readily apparent reason. [[VideoGame/StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime The third game's]] dictionary explains this as being a result of both of Leon's parents carrying a certain recessive gene on the twelfth chromosome.
