* InformedAttribute: Constantly referred to as being beautiful, an inspiration to everyone and as strongly determined, which may come across as this to the player. She's no more beautiful than any of the other girls, her strong determination is also mentioned as a flaw of hers. [[spoiler: The fact that the her legs hurt constantly after being healed can come across as this to the player, too, since it is never actually mentioned until a [[GuideDangit subevent]].]]

* UnkemptBeauty: Albeit in the form of an InformedAttribute. If you check out the description for her default hairstyle, you'll find out that Milla hasn't ''ever'' had a haircut. Her hair looks far too healthy for that to be true, though, which you ''could'' chalk up to stylization... [[FridgeLogic Until you realize that her hair has layers and short bangs, which can't possibly be achieved unless either you cut it]] or [[HairstyleInertia her haircut's been preprogrammed into her genetics and doesn't change even if you don't cut it]]. (Though considering the sequel reveals that [[spoiler: Maxwell intentionally created her in the image of the Genesis Sage Milla Kresnik, who was the first human to ever summon him and he is hinted to have had romantic feelings for,]] HairstyleInertia is a strong possibility.)

* StupidNeutral: While YMMV will of course vary about alignments, Alvin's actions over the course of the game deconstruct the selfish, backstabbing, borderline-insane kind of neutral character in-universe by showing just ''how'' empty and meaningless such an existence is. Alvin is loyal to nobody and will quite happily backstab the people he's been working with for years for entirely arbitrary reasons. The game ultimately shows that he ''doesn't'' have much in his life beyond being a backstabbing little shit and by the point he decides that he has to change he realizes that it may be too late for him.

* NeverMyFault: After he shoots [[spoiler:Leia]] while trying to snap Jude out of his HeroicBSOD, he screams that it's all Jude's fault. Rrrright; you can blame Jude all you want, Alvin, but which one of you has the gun in his hand?

* BeingEvilSucks: It's established ridiculously early on that Alvin is not to be trusted and he soon proves to have a serious case of ChronicBackstabbingDisorder. Yet it causes him a fair deal of angst because, [[spoiler:since he was raised as a child spy]], he doesn't know any other way to live. ** To add to this, Alvin does not want to betray people. [[spoiler: He only betrays people because Exodus has the medicine his mom needs to live. He doesn't want to work for them but he can't go without it.]]

** ReliableTraitor: Despite everything, Jude trusts him because even if he doesn't agree, he understands Jude's decisions and feelings. He sticks with the party in the end though, but not before some holy shit moments.

** Best summed up and {{Lampshaded}} in this skit: --> (after Jude complains about neck pains) --> '''Leia''': Jude, it's pretty faint, but I think there's a footprint on your face. --> '''Jude''': Huh. I did have a dream that Agria was repeatedly stomping my head. --> '''Rowen''': From the size and shape of that Footprint, it would seem that dream was no dream at all.
