* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' at first left me confused as to why Lightning suddenly acted nicer to Hope. Then it hit me that Lightning was looking out for him all along. She told him to stay away from her before facing Odin, not because she disliked him, rather, She was worried the boy would follow her into an even more dangerous situation. Overcoming her distress and seeing that Hope could defend himself during the fight, she finally allows him to get closer to her, knowing that keeping him close would be better than allowing him to recklessly roam around without proper supervision, like what happened to Serah.
** I interpreted that differently. At that point in the game, Lightning has just lost the only person she has a real emotional connection with, and therefore feels ''unbelievably'' alone - but she is the poster girl for repressed emotion, so she makes the tactically smart choice of sending Hope (not too useful at that point) away, rather than keeping him around for company like she really wants to do. However, this time she can't ignore her repressed despair because it summons a giant-ass mecha to pull her out of her slump. Odin goes after Hope, not Lightning, and the way to fill the Gestalt is to throw Cure around like confetti. Odin is forcing Lightning to acknowledge that she cares about Hope, because she needs some form of human company. And it works! She realizes that she actually does want him around, and lets him come along.
* While on the subject of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'', I thought it abandoned the idea of the traditional WhiteMagicianGirl[=/=][[MsFanservice Sexy]] Tough [=Girl=]/BrattyHalfPint pattern. But if you flip Lightning's and Hope's genders, she becomes a traditional hero, while he feels like a variation on the Staff Chick role; not only does he fit the role gameplay-wise, he is the person the tough, cold hero chooses to protect, who helps defrost the hero. This ''also'' explains the massive Hoprai shipping base - he fills the storyline role traditionally filled by the hero's LoveInterest, so everyone sees him as such.
* Also about ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'': I found it odd that Vanille, a young girl, had higher physical attack power than either Lightning (a trained soldier) or Snow (a brawler who fights by punching things). I looked at her stats to see if it was her weapon that did the trick, but it wasn't; she just has a higher base attack stat than anyone else, but suddenly turns it into the WhiteMage in the game proper. Then [[TheReveal a revelation came in the game]] that at first was just [[TheReveal a regular plot twist,]] but it just hit me five minutes ago [[FridgeBrilliance as to why Vanille's higher attack ability suddenly makes sense]]: [[spoiler: Vanille is]] ''[[spoiler: already]]'' [[spoiler: a L'Cie at the start of the game. Since L'Cie have magic to boost their statistiscs, this made her naturally stronger than everybody else, who at that point were just regular human beings.]]
** It also explains why she sticks to physical attacks instead of her traditional attack style in the beginning; She's a WhiteMage, but while the civilians are being purged for just living ''near'' a Pulse Fal'Cie, they would utterly panic if they found out [[spoiler: there was a Pulse L'Cie standing next to them.]]
** Also regarding Vanille, I noticed on my second play-through that all the main characters besides Vanille (and of course Fang) start with two ATB segments while Vanille has three. Not a big deal until you realize [[spoiler:everyone gets a 3rd segment after being branded l'Cie by Anima.]] Another subtle hint that Vanille [[spoiler:is a Pulse l'Cie.]] When it came to Vanille, SE did [[GameplayAndStorySegregation Gameplay And Story]] [[JustForPun Integration]] quite well.
* Snow in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' draws a few references to Cecil from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV''. When Cecil becomes a Paladin, he gains the ability Cover, which protects other party members from damage, and the ability to cast low level White Magic. Snow's best role involves protecting him and his party, though Provoke/Challenge + Steelguard is the closest you can get to Cover in XIII. The weapon that improves this ability is called Paladin. He's also a mediocre Medic, casting low level Medic abilities. Any even more direct connection is the technique the two of them receive their upgrades (Cecil's class change and Snow's Eidolon): to do nothing but defend.
