* ArtifactTitle: ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' was going to be series' creator Hironobu Sakaguchi's final game for Square if it didn't sell well, who proclaimed that his "final game" for Square would be a "fantasy RPG". The fact that it is now more than twenty years and forty-seven sequels/spin-offs later provides a slight hint as to whether or not the word "final" still applies (although Sakaguchi is no longer involved in the series after ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX''.)

* GenkiGirl: Starting from FFV (Porom in FFIV was extremely collected so she avoided this completely), the series started employing this trope. We have Krile in FFV, Relm in FFVI, Yuffie in FFVII, Selphie in FFVIII, Eiko in FFIX, Rikku in FFX and FFX-2, Penelo in FFXII, and Vanille in FFXIII.

* OneTimeDungeon: Nearly every single game in the series (I being the only exception) has several dungeons that the player only gets one shot at visiting. Naturally, there are items that can only be found in these dungeons, so they're LostForever if the player leaves without picking them up.

This series was also one of the first Japanese games made by someone other than Creator/{{Namco}} or Creator/{{Nintendo}} to reach US shores and see a successful market. Later Japanese games would [[FollowTheLeader see this potential and come onto the scene]]. One equally popular series that saw this potential would eventually be ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'', Enix's flagship franchise. The other is ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'', {{Atlus}}' flagship franchise. Before the Square Enix merger, these franchises have been competing against each other since the NES days; currently, SMT and ''Final Fantasy'' are direct competitors in both markets, while ''Dragon Quest'' has taken a much quieter role outside of Japan, despite remaining king in its home country.

While the series stuck firmly to a policy of one-game-per-number for a long time, in more recent times the franchise has opened up to the idea of sequels and compilations. ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' was the first to get a direct sequel, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' was the first to get a whole trilogy, and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' was the first to have a compilation of games set in the [[TheVerse same universe]], known as the ''Franchise/IvaliceAlliance''.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' (2016): WarriorPrince Noctis Lucis Caelum goes on a {{road trip|Plot}} with his buddies to marry his fiancee and retrieve his kingdom's stolen PowerCrystal from invaders. The game is notable for completely abandoning turn-based combat for action RPG gameplay, along with a WesternRpG-style WideOpenSandbox. The setting itself, Eos, is also significantly different from predecessors: branding itself as a "fantasy based on reality", ''XV'' has the most "realistic" setting of the main series, resembling a mid/late-20th century earth with PhysicalGods, {{Magitek}}, and no internet (and ProductPlacement).
