* PrettyPrincessPowerhouse: She is a lovely girl with CutenessProximity and RapunzelHair, and she is also an alchemist dedicated to improving her kingdom using her ability to synthesize items. Although she's not the strongest fighter in terms of pure martial ability, she more than makes up for it by crafting items to use in combat which include extremely powerful bombs, magical weapons, and a FantasticNuke shaped like a mushroom. The ingredients for these are items are found at the source. Need dragon scales? She goes to kill a dragon personally, no delegating to guards. One of the titles she can earn is "The Strongest Princess". Last but not least, she's the only ''VideoGame/{{Atelier}}'' protagonist with her own [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXoXtF8_YMQ battle theme song]]!

* BadassPrincess: Meruru, [[spoiler: ''especially'' after you get the "Strongest Princess" ending.]]
** She's so badass she's the first Atelier heroine in the franchise to get her own battle theme ''with vocals''.

** Meruru's ExpositoryThemeTune, "Alchemy Girl Meruru", sounds ''exactly'' like it belongs in a show like ''{{Slayers}}''.

The game possesses mechanics that are widely regarded as [[SurprisinglyImprovedSequel 'Rorona and]] [[EvenBetterSequel Totori polished together']], earning many an approving word from the fanbase (not to mention some of the best review scores an Atelier game has ever '''seen''', on both sides of the Pacific).

Added DiffLines:

* ShelteredAristocrat: Gio shows has shades of this. In one of the more comic scenes, he finds Princess Meruru minding a dry goods shop for a friend. One of the things Meruru is selling is carrots, which he doesn't recognize because he's only ever had them cooked and buttered. He offers 100 cole for one, but Meruru says it's way too much and sells it to him for 10 cole... which is still 3 more cole than it's normally sold for to the player at the shop!

* FreakyFridayFlip: Rorona gives both Meruru and Keina a "Switching Pie" so they swapped bodies for a time. Meruru took it in stride, Keina... not so much.

* TheScrappy: Rorona. She got turned into an eight year old between games, acts her new age, and her memories have becomea complete mess. Though her Alchemic skills are still in tact, she mainly refuses to use it willingly. A very large portion of fanbase is not pleased. This is apparently because Gust [[ChristmasCake couldn't stand to see her in her 30s]]. "Who wants to see a Rorona in her 30s? Not me, that's for sure!"
** Astrid herself receives almost as much heat for doing the deed. Two of the endings make it worse! In one ending where you make a Youth Potion that restores her normal age, Astrid '''sabotages''' it to to only age her back to 14 with her memories still a wreck, with Astrid delivering the above message. In another, Witch's Tea Party, she forcefully renders all 3 Arland protagonists and herself to be 14 forever, citing it as an "ideal age". Some fans even treat the endings as the MoralEventHorizon. Gust must have caught on, as the Vita remake has an ending where you successfully restore Rorona's true age and her memories WITHOUT Astrid's sabotage.
This list shows the last 10 events of 54. Show all.
