** Especially for European fans, as no one was gutsy enough to bring it over after the failure that was ''Episode II'', both the game's fault and due to sloppy handling of the game's release in Europe; they did not release ''Episode I'', unanimously declared to be a better game, and then they missed out on ''Episode III'', which is arguably as good as if not better than ''Episode I''.

* CrossDressingVoices: Jr. is voiced by Bridanne Siddall. In a much more minor example, WendeeLee voiced kid Gaignun in ''Episode III''.

* BadExportForYou: The series had a god-awful treatment in Europe. For starters, [[NoExportForYou Episode I wasn't even released]] but, in one of the most baffling publishing decisions in a genre popular in Europe for its baffling publishing decisions, Episode II WAS released. And in a really neat, almost-collector edition-level packaging. Too bad it was only (badly) translated into French and German (in a time when Spanish and Italian translations were already common place) and with one of the worst 50Hz conversions in the entire 6th Console Generation, which is saying something. As for the plot, the game included a DVD with a few hours worth of cutscenes from Episode I to put European audiences up to speed... sort of, since it barely counted as a barebones version of the plot of the first game. The game obviously flopped hard, so Episode III wasn't even considered for an European release.

* HeyItsThatVoice: Creator/CrispinFreeman is Albedo and Nigredo/Gaignun, with several instances of TalkingToHimself.
** Creator/JenniferHale is a young Nigredo/Gaignun in Episode II.
** Creator/DaveWittenberg is Allen Ridgeley.
** Creator/RichardEpcar is Ziggy.
** Creator/BrianneSiddall is Rubedo/Junior.
** Creator/LexLang is Lieutenant Virgil.
** Creator/KeithSzarabajka is Dmitri Yuriev.



* TalkingToHimself: Creator/CrispinFreeman as Albedo and Nigredo/Gaignun has several instances of this.



** Several potentially awesome scenes were removed from the scripts of all three games, some being added in later, but not when they were originally supposed to be; and some were completely forgotten about. The most obvious example being the fight between Jin and Margulis, which was in the trailer for the original game but ended up being in Episode II. Another being a potential plot where KOS-MOS eventually got strong enough weapons to destroy a planet, which Shion was supposed to prevent. Also, chaos, the [[spoiler: guy with the ability to destroy the universe, sits around and hangs in the background doing...well, not much. Just shopping and having cryptic conversations most of the time.]]

* TheOtherDarrin: The dub of ''Xenosaga The Animation'' was done by Creator/ADVFilms in Texas, so no one kept the voices they had in-game. The Japanese dub of the entire collective franchise managed to keep pretty much everyone who was assigned to that character from the start. Creator/RichardEpcar, the voice of Ziggy through all three games, stated that he didn't even know there was an anime, or that it was being dubbed in Texas. Otherwise, he would have flown over there from California and auditioned for Ziggy.
