* Suprisingly the series has an oddly shocking habit of actually having the antagonists {{Killed Off for Real}} each game, and it's usually by you/the protagonist's hands.



* If the BigBad is a WellIntentionedExtremist, the game will include at least one [[SmugSnake utterly vile]] minor villain to act as a HateSink. More often than not, they'll be TheUnfought, quicky dispatched [[CutsceneBoss in a cutscene]] just before the major plot kicks in. In the English dubs, this character [[PigeonholedVoiceActor is nearly always voiced by]] Creator/LiamOBrien.

* A TheReveal where an EldritchAbomination is pulling the strings of the plot. Preferably, they use main characters and antagonists via [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashing them to do their bidding]], often [[AndIMustScream forcefully]]. Very often the FinalBoss of the game.



** In some cases, a GainaxEnding that wraps up everything and [[AssPull pulls the]] above together.

Earlier games in the series were developed by Wolf Team, once a subsidiary of Creator/TelenetJapan, which was reorganized as Namco Tales Studio in 2003. Namco Tales Studio was shut down in 2011 but absorbed into Namco Bandai, which intends to continue the series.

* A CampfireCharacterExploration typically occurs [[OncePerEpisode at least once or twice per game]]. In general, the party spends the night around a campfire or at an inn, and the main character, who can't sleep, becomes the only controllable character. These scenes typically allow the player to have hushed, intimate conversations with all the party members separately, but involve one or two specific required conversations between the main character and one or two other characters before the plot will progress.
