* AwesomeButImpractical: Nova, [[spoiler:Aila]]'s Exceed attack as a bonus character. It requires the use of the game's only activation ability that does not refund the points spent to use it, and only deals about twice as much damage as their second-strongest attack. In the time it takes to set it up (and charge to get your EX back again), you could deal more damage with less impressive abilities.

'''White's Disablize''': Okay for organic bosses.\\
'''Black's Psychokinesis''': [[GameBreaker Cast Mindblast, win game.]] Sure, you have to level up a bunch first, but how hard can that be when giant mutants and robots are running around?

* AntiFrustrationFeatures:
** Downplayed with the bonus characters. While they're still a pain to level, their EXP requirements are much lower than the main story members, to the point where they will reach the level cap much faster if the player decides to spend some time on them.
** Possessing the GPS Unit will automatically reveal hidden passages and possessing the Signal Ring will alert the player if there's at least one shard in a dungeon. This makes it much easier to track down every shard and complete the Joker sidequest.
