* 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 has the lowest userbase of the Big 3 consoles of this generation.)

* DawsonCasting: Zigzagged with Hope's voice actor, Vincent Martella. He was 18 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 22 by now.

** Lightning was originally supposed to have a much more flirtatious and carefree personality, but it was determined that her role required her to be more serious and her original personality was largely transplanted to Fang [[spoiler: [[LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII and Lumina.]]]]

** 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 ''FinalFantasyXIII-2'' as Proto-fal'Cie Adam.

** The concept of l'Cie, magic-using humans who mutate into demonic monsters and whose souls solidify into a physical, crystalline form and are forced to fight a war as avatars of {{Physical God}}s are based on [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Espers]], who are...magic-using, mutated humans whose souls solidify into a physical, crystalline form who were forced to fight a war as avatars of {{Physical God}}s.

** Serah was conceived as being the seventh party member, [[FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling with a more serious personality to match Lightning's more frivolous one]]. She was [[DemotedToExtra reduced to an NPC]] due to unspecified "implementation problems". The changes to Lightning and Fang can ultimately be traced back to Serah's removal from the party.
