* An example added by the SNES localisation: Why is Cecil supposed to sheathe his sword and let his EnemyWithout attack him? It's not to "punish" himself, but to prove to himself that he won't give in, either to anger or his inner darkness. It also symbolises how instead of being just a killer in a new outfit, his goal is to protect, to defend. If he attacks his reflection, he's just giving in to the same weakness that controlled him as a Dark Knight.

* The Prison Garb Cid comes and Rosa, after being taken hostage, come equipped with prevents Sleep status. Yikes.Yikes for Cid, but worse when you realize that Rosa couldn't even pass out while in the guillotine. She had to see death hanging over her, her lover, and her friends for every instant until saved.

* Despite it being a borderline meme on the number of times Kain betrays you (which is not actually as much as you might have heard) and the amount of cliche evil tropes (EvilSoundsDeep, dark armour, left-handed, constantly struggles with jealousy of the main character) he lacks any SpikesOfVillainy like Golbez. This becomes obvious when you consider that he's a Dragoon: spikes would weigh him down with air drag and weaken his jumps, so the only spike he uses is the one that'll end up in a enemy's head

** Actually, the "W" usually means "double" in japanese. It's a long story (that you an read [[http://legendsoflocalization.com/the-legend-of-the-mysterious-letter-w/ here]]) but basically, they should have translated it as Double Meteor sience the start.

** It's also possible that they wouldn't want to let him play on account of his injuries, and he didn't have time to explain the importance. (Although, of course, given that he gave Cecil the Whisperweed / Twinharp in advance, you'd think he could have just asked it to be left within his reach and taken the time to explain why in advance.)

* When the Dark Elf nearly kills Cecil & Co., Edward very dramatically struggles to walk across the room to get his harp and save the day, nearly killing himself in the process. But, given that the doctor and nurse are right there, and there are no other patients in the infirmary, why does he not simply ask them to bring him his harp? RuleOfDrama, I suppose.

* Combined with Fridge TearJerker -- the boss at the end of Cecil's Lunar Trial is Lunar Odin, and his reward for facing the trial is received before the fight. The trial is a series of tests of character to see how virtuous and noble Cecil really is and thus if he's truly worthy of the Paladin's holy light. If you fail the trial completely, the reward at the end is a Dark Sword, Cecil's initial weapon at the start of the game as a Dark Knight. Think about this from Cecil's point of view -- you go through a series of character tests to prove you are a true Paladin, then at the end of the trial you open that chest and find staring back at you the same weapon you renounced as a tool of hatred and evil as the reward the trial-giver has judged appropriate based on your actions. He then transforms into the image of the king that made you train with that dark sword years ago and attacks you.

I'm guessing it got pretty dusty in there until the Elder showed up to restore them.
