* One wonders how the Gigas Recumen ever terrorized anything when it is a grounded unit that, presumably, cannot leave it's one island and its one distance attack can be knocked off target by a small ship's cannon.
** Presumably, it was a lot more terrifying when the lands were all one continent and not separated by clouds and skies.
** What? Nothing in the game even implies that Arcadia was once all one continent. I'm more guessing the Red Civilization built Recumen more to defend their people, instead of conquering. Same with Grendel and the Green Civilization.

* I've always liked ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'', and I've found Galcian specifically a pretty cool villain since my first playthrough, but something I noticed years after first playing the game really underscored his villainy. Skies is pretty subtle about ingame religion, but if you look it's clear that most of the Arcadian cultures worship the Moons. So what does Galcian do? He bends the Moons to his will with an ancient superweapon. He subjugates what the people see as ''gods''. Galcian is now definitely one of my favourite villains.

** And speaking of beginnings and ends, [[spoiler: the game begins in the skies above Soltis underneath the Silver moon where Dyne and Vyse seize a Valuan ship headed by Adrimal Alfonso. Shortly afterwards, the first dungeon beings at nearby Shrine Island. At the end of the game, Shrine Island is revealed to be the entrance to the Soltis continent and the final boss is fought in the Skies above Soltis. In other words, the game begins and ends under the Silver moon below the silver contintent.]]

* Observation: it sure is incredibly easy to find mechanical arms and weapons that are compatible with Drachma's preexisting mount. Conclusion: amputees are incredibly common and Drachma's is the standard model.

* One of the bonus bosses, Elcian, is unlocked after you beat Galcian. It's a black looper. The implication? Loopers, those things you've been getting frustrated at and slaughtering for most of the game so far, are the spirits of the dead.

** Grendel has the same "grounded unit" problem, but at least it's far more difficult to stop than just "shoot its head with light weaponry."

** Grendel has the same "grounded unit" problem, but at least it can't be reasonably stopped by anything short of a super weapon, clever tactics, and the loss of it's controller.
