Looks like misuse.

* PsychoSerum: [[spoiler:Jackal Serum in high doses, which is also justified. It's designed to heighten both mental and physical capabilities, but overdose causes neurological deterioration and reversion to primal instincts. However, the heightened strength and endurance are retained, meaning you now have someone who's effectively a superpowerful zombie on your hands.]]

* RareCandy: Enhancers. Interestingly, they are infinite in amount; they can be obtained from red core chests and even bought from stores. To counteract this, however, they only raise stats by pitiful amounts. And [[OneStatToRuleThemAll there are none that raise Speed]].

* UselessUsefulSpell: Averted; nothing is immune to status effects, even bosses. Inflicting crushes on your opponent is usually a good way to cripple them.

* LawOfInverseRecoil: Magnums have incredible recoil; firing them one-handed is a good way to end up with broken wrists. However, Hawk manages to fire one one-handed with no problem at all during a cutscene.

* HoYay: Kugar and Tinder. The latter [[LampshadedTrope lampshades]] it ruthlessly. ** A darker version is revealed in Orange's case. [[spoiler: His duel with Shadow Red is about him sorting out his conflicting feelings about Red.]]

* CryForTheDevil: [[spoiler:Kugar. The poor guy used to be a kind person, but was then mind-controlled by Aila for ''years'', forcing him to commit atrocities and become the oppressive dictator he is by the beginning of the game. By the time you encounter him in Avalon, he's been driven completely insane by Aila's control, and has been under her influence for so long that freeing him is impossible.]]

* DevelopmentHell: Having to juggle ten different characters, each with their own sideplots and CharacterDevelopment, was, understandably, too much for Neok. This forced him to cut a few character subplots short so he could avoid the massive writer's block. Fortunately, he says that he's learned from his mistake, and aims to be more careful with characters next time.

* GameBreaker: Zero system. More damaged dealt depending on reduced HP. Certain Modes can give you Exceed at a decent rate for a small percentage of HP per turn. Combine the 2 and you have a nigh unstoppable force. ** You can actually buy Zero Systems from Tinder if you can find him.

* SoLongAndThanksForAllTheGear: Averted. You can un-equip every playable character at any time, even ones that aren't currently in the party.

Mac Guffin Girl is no longer a trope.

Okay, getting past the movie-trailer-speak, '''Alter A.I.L.A''' is a popular and very highly-regarded RPG made in [[RPGMaker RPG Maker 2003]] by Neok. As mentioned above, the game has three different routes, making for very high replay value. But what makes it even better is that completing all three routes unlocks a [[GoldenEnding fourth route]], which outclasses the first three in almost every way. The plotline is rife with twists, turns, and interesting developments, the characters are fleshed-out and engaging, and the music is top notch. Definitely worth checking out.

Misuse. It's Genre Savvy, not just "savvy".
* OneStatToRuleThemAll: As with all ATB-based battle systems, Speed. Doubling it essentially doubles all of your other stats at the same time, since you can act twice as often. Fortunately, Neok is GenreSavvy in this regard -- Speed can only be increased through equipment, and only in small amounts. SPD Boosters also cost more than other boost items.

Misuse. The Dev Team Thinks Of Everything is not about attention to detail outside of player actions.
* RareCandy: Enhancers. Interestingly, they are infinite in amount; they can be obtained from red core chests and even bought from stores. To counteract this, however, they only raise stats by pitiful amounts. And [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything there are none that raise]] [[OneStatToRuleThemAll Speed]].
