* BadExportForYou: [[DownplayedTrope A minor case]], but nonetheless worthy of mention; the difficulty setting is absent in the overseas releases.

* DawsonCasting: Zigzagged with Hope's voice actor, Vincent Martella. He was 17 when the first game came out in English while Hope was supposed to be 14 in-game. In ''XIII-2'', Hope was aged up to 24, meaning Martella was actually younger than him, inverting the trope. Then in ''Lightning Returns'' Hope was de-aged back to 14 while Martella was 21 by now.

*** Titan himself also would have been fought as a boss, but his model was just too big to impliment a proper fight against it. This limitation was overcome for the sequel and led to a boss fight with Atlas, a modified PaletteSwap of Titan.

* Gilgamesh was intended to appear as a regular character; a fal'Cie with giant swords. FridgeLogic dictates that he was likely supposed to be the ultimate opponent of Titan's Trials as opposed to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqBRU16nCWo Attacus]], as Attacus uses the exact same progressive battle tactics that Gilgamesh did in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', and you are arbitrarily given the store ''Gilgamesh Inc.'' as a quest reward for finishing half of the Trials fights. Getting this store as a reward for beating their namesake would have made more sense.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to the ''Final Fantasy XIII Ultimania Omega'', the development team at one point considered making Vanille the official main character of the game, but dismissed the idea as they had already released a trailer and art featuring Lightning in that role.

* KillerApp: Or, it was supposed to be. Its absence for the first ''four years'' of the [=PS3=]'s lifespan, as well as its hop to international multi-platform release, has blunted its impact. Total sales of the game are more-or-less on par with ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' (which is no mean feat on the Playstation 3, which had the lowest userbase of the Big 3 consoles of the seventh generation.)

** The game was to have an extra dungeon, [[http://jul.rustedlogic.net/thread.php?pid=436302#436302 called the Seventh Arc]], a hidden facility designed to train fal'Cie, which contained a superboss named Nemesis. Interestingly, dialogue tied to this dungeon basically lays bare the fact that the party is aware that Barthandelus is manipulating them into becoming stronger, as opposed to it being an elephant in the room in the final game. The dungeon was [[DummiedOut cut]] for time (although it seems to have inspired the Augusta Tower dungeon,) Nemesis is recycled into ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'' as Proto-fal'Cie Adam.

** The plot of the game while on Gran Pulse is basically an abridged version of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'''s. It especially starts to line up towards the end of the segment - the party traverses a large, tall structure (Taejin's Tower/Mt. Gagazet) in order to reach a city (Oerba/Zanarkand) that at least one of the party members (Vanille and Fang/Tidus) lived in while it thrived, but is now in ruins.
