** 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).

* 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.

* CosmicPlaything: Lias, whose bad luck is almost inhuman.



* HairDecorations: Nearly all of the girls wear one.
* HeroWorshipper: Meruru absolutely adores Totori and really looks up to her.





Added DiffLines:

* TheMedic: Keina
* {{Meido}}: Again, Keina


Added DiffLines:

* ModestyShorts: Meruru wears bloomers under her DangerouslyShortSkirt, thus allowing her to move around freely without having to worry about PantyShots. It's taken to the point that all of her costumes (except her Totori costume, which comes with a leotard) include bloomers underneath.


Added DiffLines:

* RapunzelHair: Meruru's hair is incredibly long.


Added DiffLines:

* TheOneGuy: Male Hom is the only male presence in a workshop that houses four other girls.
