* WouldHurtAChild: With people dropping like flies, you would think that at least the children are safe. Sadly, it is not the case. [[spoiler:Sybill will die, but not because of a nightmare: she will be assassinated by Ronan and Giles in person. Elene also meets her tragic end in a similar manner: she dies when the Murgg raze Inoa to the ground.]]

** Nadia is making stuff blow up as soon as she falls asleep. When you arrive in the village, [[TheInsomniac she's been awake for 6 days straight]], and is becoming more and more tired and irritated. If you go visit her in her house as soon as you arrive in Inoa village, you'll see her briefly fall asleep while standing, which cause the nearby table to explode. When the mine crumbles, she's on the defensive, [[NotMeThisTime stating that she didn't fall asleep]] (as it turns out to be, it indeed wasn't her fault). Later, when she falls asleep again, she blows up Olen's house (good thing he's dead when this happens... [[LostForever You'd better have got the Gilded Falcon inside before that]]).

* GottaCatchThemAll: Exactly what are Gilded Falcons worth? Life Vessels, rare accessories, and unless you can get at least 45 (many of which are easily LostForever), you'll never find out what the ultimate prize (for all 50) even is, let along get your hands on it.
* GuideDangIt: Getting all of the Gilded Falcons; some can be LostForever due to secret timer mechanisms or being locked away in one-time-only dungeons. Also, the Fiend and {{Infinity Plus One Sword}}s aren't exactly something you'll just happen across by yourself.

** The Spirit Wand. Grants infinite MP in exchange for having no physical attack. It requires collecting all the Gilded Falcons in the game, several of which are prime examples of GuideDangIt and LostForever. One of it also requires getting five straight wins four times on a Roulette Table, which is a LuckBasedMission and is as frustrating as it sounds.

* LostForever: Pretty much anything in a dream world -- including [[HeartContainer Life Vessels]] and Guilded Falcons -- can be lost if you don't pick it up before beating the local boss.

* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:Melzas, What makes Melzas such a formidable foe. Knowing that Alundra has been saving the villagers of Inoa from their nightmares, he eventually [[spoiler:stages a trap to try and lure Alundra into somebody's nightmare so very much.that the Murgg can break in to the victim's house and kill him while he's helpless in the real world. After discovering Sybil's prediction that leads to the creation of the Holy Sword, as well as figuring out that the dead villagers are inspiring Jess to create weapons for Alundra, he not only has Ronan do whatever he can to keep Lutas (whose death leads to the Holy Sword's creation) alive, but eventually kill Sybill and Jess so that the sword can't be forged in the first place.]] Finally, near the end of the game, [[spoiler:he stages another trap by kidnapping Burgus and putting him to sleep, forcing Alundra to enter the dreams of his twin brother Nestus to locate and teleport to him. Since twins are linked by dreams, Melzas takes advantage of it and launches a surprise attack on Inoa while Alundra is away, sending a hoard of Murgg through the same link, causing them to pop out of Nestus and raze Inoa to the ground.]]

* EstablishingSeriesMoment: You venture into Olen's dream, slay the nightmare and then [[spoiler: he dies anyway.]] You then go to the mine to rescue the cave-in survivors and [[spoiler: find everyone inside is already dead or dying.]] These events firmly establish that no, [[AnyoneCanDie this is not a game where the hero will be able to save everyone.]]

* SavePoint: The Diary, like the one in Jess's house. (Unlike {{Landstalker}}, you don't need to take them to a priest this time.) Dungeons frequently include a purple-glowing warp tile that takes you to an isolated room with a diary and HP/MP recovery points, and the island's PortalNetwork contains one as well.
