** There's also the unreleased Family Computer version of the game (allegedly an entirely different game, with this Super Famicom concept initially "Final Fantasy V"), which, despite original projections, was actually ''80%'' complete before it had to be shelved. From the sound of things, certain ideas were reused for the released ''Final Fantasy IV'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'', but Hironobu Sakaguchi still regretted that he had to let it go.

* DevelopmentGag: An obscure one for Edward's English name - it was borrowed from the name given to Richard (incidentally a Highwind) in the NES prototype of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII''.
* DoingItForTheArt: The original plan when making the English port of the DS version was just to text dump the game's GBA script. Translator Tom Slattery, however, was a fan of the original Super NES version of the game, and offered to single-handedly re-translate the entire script from Japanese to give it more flair and be more faithful to the original Japanese story. [[{{Woolseyism}} His hard work is noticeable]].

** As with the other Final Fantasy titles, the original Super Nintendo version skipped over Europe, and Europe only got to play the game when it was ported to the PlayStation.
* PortOverdosed: The game has been released on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, UsefulNotes/PlayStation, [=WonderSwan=] Color, Game Boy Advance, FOMA and UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable, as well as a 3D remake for NintendoDS, which was later ported to iOS and Android, and then was later ported to Steam. The original Super NES version and the UsefulNotes/PlayStation versions are also available on the Wii Virtual Constole and Playstation Network. If you own pretty much ''any'' Sony or Nintendo console manufactured in the last 10-15 years, you can play some version or another of this game.

** It was rumored that in the original (i.e. Japanese) version of the game, it was possible for Cecil to de-petrify [[spoiler:Palom and Porom]] himself, by following some convoluted method which, depending to who you heard it from, [[spoiler:may involve the very real DevelopersRoom EasterEgg]]. You can't. It doesn't help that the game teases you by giving you an option to choose an item to use on them if you interact with their petrified form; no matter what you use, nothing will happen. (This is a holdover from the Japanese version, where you still couldn't actually accomplish anything but where there was at least a [[http://legendsoflocalization.com/final-fantasy-iv/baron-castle-2/ special message]] if you tried to use a Golden Needle to help them in an acknowledgement of the usual headscratcher of using curative items to reverse a PlotlineDeath. Since the Golden Needle was DummiedOut in the American/Easytype release, even that bare message is unavailable.)
** Managing to [[VideoGameStealing obtain]] Dark Matter before using the Crystal on the FinalBoss (or during any phase in the [=iOS=] version) does not blunt the power of [[spoiler:Zeromus's Big Bang]], contrary to popular belief. [[RedHerring Using the item has no effect]], but the rumor persists regardless, even on [[Wiki/TVTropes This Very Wiki]]. In a likely [[FandomNod nod]], Dark Matter ''does'' serve a purpose in the 3D remakes: if the player has the item in their inventory during NewGamePlus, landing the ''Lunar Whale'' on the surface of the Red Moon and using the item when prompted [[spoiler:leads to an encounter with one of the game's [[BonusBoss superbosses]], the Proto-Babil]].

* NoExportForYou: For some strange reason, the Steam version isn't available in Asia, and yet the other versions of the game (iOS, Android and DS) are.
