** The French translation, full of [[ArtisticLicense gratuitous English that does not match the original English]], has an item called a [[NineInchNails 9 inch nail]]... described as "the claw of an [[IndustrialMetal industrial monster]]." Guess the French translator must've been a fan then.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Selphie had two additional Limit Breaks in her 'Slot' command: Percentage, a gravity-based attack - that cuts all enemies by 15/16 of their current HP. And Catastrophe - a spell even more powerful than Apocalypse. These can be accessed with a gameshark - and are seen with the Fire spell animation.
** Rinoa's name was initially mistranslated as 'Lenore' in a lot of magazines - and her name is 'Linoa' in the French version of the game.
** Adel was meant to be the final boss of Disc 3 - following the tradition of finishing every Disc with a sorceress battle.

* ExecutiveMeddling: ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' has this game to thank for it's sloppy second disk. In the middle of ''Xenogears''' production, staff and funding was taken from the game in order to work and finance ''Final Fantasy VIII''. This resulted in exposition being narrated in paragraphs instead of actually playing the game and a storyline that wasn't entirely explained in the game too clearly (all but requiring [[UniverseCompendium Perfect Works]] to make sense of things).

* CreatorBacklash: The Gunblade was originally treated as one of the most effective weapons of the time, Cid being thrilled at having a Gunblade master in the ranks of [=SeeD=], and it being often said that only the best can use them. However, since this game its reputation has died down a lot. Squall's ''Dissidia'' profile says the Gunblade is an antiquated weapon and was notoriously difficult to use properly, and Squall's choice to use one is more a show of stubbornness than strength. Tetsuya Nomura meanwhile has admitted the weapon has an odd design, and looking at other games, Gunblades usually now appear as literal gun and sword combinations rather than the vibrating weapon Squall uses.
