* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII'' had D&D style [[VancianMagic Spells per Day]]. Later games would use MP instead. Those two plus ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'' also had purely TurnBasedCombat, while later games would opt for a CombatantCoolDownSystem instead

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 had 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.

* 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''.)
