** This sometimes undergoes GossipEvolution and turns into the misconception that Vaan and Penelo were added to the game ''after'' the change of directors, despite Vaan being one of the first confirmed main characters alongside Ashe [[https://www.rpgamer.com/news/Q4-2003/112003a.html in 2003]] and Penelo being confirmed [[https://www.rpgamer.com/news/Q2-2004/041604a.html in 2004]], before Matsuno reportedly left the project in late 2004 and officially resigned in August 2005.

** ''XII'' has the rockiest development of any ''FF'' game to date, thanks to the collapse of Squaresoft (courtesy of ''Anime/FinalFantasyTheSpiritsWithin'') and its merger with Enix, creative differences with series creator Hironobu Sakaguchi (who resigned and was replaced by Akitoshi Kawazu), and the rough equivalent of $35,000,000 US spent to make the game happen. Five years is a preposterously long time considering how Square had been producing main series ''FF'' games at a steady clip of every two years. To put it in perspective, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' was released in 2001, the first year of the [=PS2=]'s life cycle, whilst the much-promised ''XII'' was released in the run-up to the [=PS3=]'s launch and (At least outside of Japan) ''after'' the announcements of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' & ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' (Then ''Versus XIII''). In fact, ''Final Fantasy XV'' is the only game in the series to have been in development for longer than ''XII'', it was released ten years after its announcement, though it only entered true development in 2012.

* CreatorsFavorite: Penelo is composer Creator/HitoshiSakimoto's favorite, which explains why she is the only other character to have an eponymous theme song aside from [[TheHero Ashe]].

** Additionally, Penelo was supposed to be far more outspoken and have a greater impact on Vaan. She was mentioned by one of the writers as one of his favorites to write for. Unfortunately, come time for the editing room floor, all of Penelo's dialogue was hit by the editing shears and left on the editing room floor.
