** Margie was originally going to be playable, hence the sketch in ''Perfect Works'' where she has an entire arsenal hidden in her cloak. Better known is the fact that Omnigear versions of Siebzehn and Crescens were designs but never implemented.

Added DiffLines:

** The relationship between Lacan and Krelian is similar to another well-known Squaresoft duo, [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud and Sephiroth]]. Likewise, the secondary villains (Deus/Mother) are basically identical to VII's secondary villain, Jenova (although Miyang had a bit more agency than Jenova did).

Added DiffLines:

* ExecutiveMeddling: Disc 2 is pretty much Executive Meddling: The Game. It became the way it is due to Square cutting some of the funding from Tetsuya Takahashi's team in order to help develop ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''. See [[http://betweenlifeandgames.com/analyses/history-xenogears-xenosaga-part-1-xenogears/ here]] for details.

* HeyItsThatVoice: So very many in the Japanese version.
** Fei is Creator/HikaruMidorikawa. Ironically, he also plays Ramsus, but goes uncredited for that.
** Elly is Creator/YumiTouma, the only voice actress more prolific than Music/MegumiHayashibara. Seriously, just [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=658 check out her credits]].
*** The English voice of Elly is Moira Quirk, best known as the referee from Series/NickelodeonGuts.
** Citan is Creator/HideyukiTanaka, whose roles include [[Franchise/MetalGear Hal "Otacon" Emmerich]].
** Bart is Creator/TomokazuSeki, AKA [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Domon Kasshu]] and [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Sousuke Sagara]] (among many others).
** Billy is Yuji Ueda, who played [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Akito Tenkawa]].
** Krellian is Creator/RyotaroOkiayu.
*** Interesting to note is that he's never played the game up until Creator/TomokazuSugita and Creator/YuuichiNakamura presented it to him in [[LetsPlay Tokyo Encounter.]]

* WorkingTitle: ''Xenogears'' was originally called ''-Project Noah-'', but this was changed during development for unknown reasons. Presumably it's because {{Square}} didn't want the already controversial religious symbolism to extend to the title.
