''Atelier Iris 2: The Azoth of Destiny'' is the second in the Atelier Iris series of [[RolePlayingGames Role Playing video games]] which itself is a subseries of the [[AtelierSeries Atelier]] alchemy-based [=RPGs=]. (Note: "Azoth" is an old alchemical term for mercury, once believed to be a wondrous substance.)

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: When she was debuted in Japan Viese's name caused a lot of linguistic contortion in trying to spell her name in English; Japanese lacks ''both'' a true V sound and a construct used like the English "ie", so what most people ended up with was some variation of "Wisey". This still occasionally trips people up when they encounter early promotional material (or when they encounter certain [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks hardcore]] [[FanDumb fans]]).

* {{Stripperiffic}}: Viese is one of the [[AtelierSeries Atelier]] heroines who very much avoids this trap; if anything she's the franchise's most conservatively-dressed heroine, almost to the point of absurdity for her native climate (two or more layers of clothing for a paradise island that's apparently warm-temperate year-round?) [[MsFanservice Noin on the other hand]]...

* UnderratedAndOverleveled: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] with your last party member [[spoiler:Viese]], who joins at the ''third to last chapter'' at level ONE. Somewhat justified since the plot of the chapter she joins is to backtrack to previous areas.

* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:Chaos]]. At least near the end, when you find out about his [[spoiler:dead little sister]].



* BecomeYourWeapon: Palaxius pulls this trope when he merges with the Azoth for the final boss fight.

to:

* BecomeYourWeapon: Palaxius [[spoiler:Palaxius]] pulls this trope when he merges with the Azoth [[spoiler:the Azoth]] for the final boss fight.



* BoisterousBruiser: Gray ends battles with a hearty laugh.
* BookDumb: Felt, who learned Mana Synthesis pretty quickly, but was more interested in combat/sword-fighting to learn true synthesis and become a full-fledged alchemist such as Viese.



* BrilliantButLazy: Felt, at least when it comes to alchemy. One of the reasons he's BookDumb. He also takes to blacksmithing really well, but only learns because Hagel wouldn't let him not learn it.



* CampCook: Noin
** Also a LethalChef, though she does improve slightly over time...
* CloudCuckooLander: Tolena



* CursedWithAwesome: Gray. Even though he wants to break the curse that made him half dragon, it has given him powers he would never have had as a human and since he is famous and his story is widely known, he is accepted everywhere so he doesn't even have the excuse of being an outcast after being turned into a monster. At the end of the game after he [[spoiler:kills the one who cursed him, he says its better he didn't change back as he would lose all the dragon powers he gained and they will need all the power they can get to fight Palaxius]].



* EmotionlessGirl: Fee



* EvilChancellor: Theodore



* HandCannon: Poe's absurd doomcannon is ''as big as he is''. And then of course he's always hitting on Viese whenever possible...



* HeroesPreferSwords: Felt. It made him the odd man out in Eden where there's nothing to fight, but that just made the people of Eden genuinely grateful when he stepped up to take the Azoth and go figure out what the hell just happened.



* JumpedAtTheCall: Felt had been trying to pull the Azoth from the stone it was trapped in nearly every day for several years already. He didn't just jump at the call, he'd been picking up the phone and yelling impatiently at the dialtone almost daily for years now.



* KidWithTheLeash: Felt, keeping the Azoth in check (a fact for which [[spoiler:the world should be infinitely grateful]]).



* LadyOfWar: Fee, very much so.



* LargeHam: Poe, particularly when speaking to women in his usual flowery manner.



* MsFanservice: Noin goes around in what amounts to a sports bra and hot pants, plus boots and [[FashionableAsymmetry single heavy gauntlet]].
* MysteriousWaif: [[spoiler:Iris]]



* SheCleansUpNicely: Noin, already something of an UnkemptBeauty and MsFanservice, gets a brief makeover. She lets her hair down, wears a shoulder-baring (among other things) LittleBlackDress, and gets her makeup done. Everyone is gobsmacked. It doesn't do much to change her behavior after the initial embarrassment wears off, though.



* SmugSnake: Imperial Consul Theodore.



* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Several of Fee's skills involve throwing her dual sickles.



* YoungerThanTheyLook: [[spoiler:Would you believe that Fee is actually '''14'''?]]

Added DiffLines:

* DuelToTheDeath: The final encounter with Chaos is fought with Felt alone. The two fight [[spoiler:in front of the Guardo Continental Drive containing Eden, Chaos using his Crimson Azoth against Felt's Azure Azoth.]] It also counts as a prelude to the true final fight for [[spoiler:Elasmus, the soul imprisoned in the Azure Azoth, against Paracelsus, his former master imprisoned in the Crimson Azoth.]] Though Felt bests and critically injures Chaos, Chaos still has the last laugh by [[spoiler:using Exanosis on Felt, turning him to stone.]]

** ShoutOut: Max eventually ends up calling him [[AtelierIris Klein]].
*** He only does this in the English translations. The Japanese audio makes no mention of any name mangling. If anything, he doesn't give poor Felt a name at all, essentially going Hey You! all the time.



* ShoutOut: Poe declares, before going to flirt with (yet another) woman he just met, "[[Franchise/StarWars Blue 5 to Red Leader, I'm going in!]]"

* {{Expy}}: Yach and Hagel are reproduced, sprite and all, from the first game. This time Yach is a merchant in Eden (rather than a precocious child who wants to study alchemy), while Hagel is a smith hiding out in a mountain whose services you have to secure (instead of a weapon shop merchant).
