* DungeonBasedEconomy: All the economy is around the eponymous tower in the centre of the town where adventurers gather to get their mons and some other materials that are obtainable there. The player has the capacity to literally use the dungeon economy to build up the town.

* HeroicMime: Koh can be named as you wish and for the most part he doesn't talk. However, there were some moments where he has some talks: When doing the comedy routine, or eating Patti's food.

* AntidoteEffect: The hazak herb (which recovers a reduced attack stat,) is completely useless on all floors of the tower that do not contain [[DemonicSpider Vipers]], the only monster capable of inflicting that effect. However, try to make it through those floors, and you'll probably be kicking yourself if you don't have any.
** They're also useful for any monster from an Arachne fusion, which doubles their base power but does not apply to stats gained in the current tower trip unless their stats are healed.

* ChildProdigy: Many adventurers are said to only make it up the first few floors before having to give up. Koh seems to easily be able to traverse the tower on his first time, and can easily manage to get to higher floors each time he adventures in, depending on the player.

** The main reason why to some gamers, Azure Dreams can be as scary as a survival horror game. Just imagine losing all those valuable items!

* DummiedOut: Several items were coded into the PS1 game, but assigned a 0% chance of dropping on any given floor, although it is still possible for them to be spit out by a Barong. Some, like the Shomuro herb, which was made to cure a status effect that was never implemented, are effectively useless.
** Well, technically there are ways for monsters to cause this sort of status effect on you, but unless you actually went out of your way to make such a situation possible, it will never be a problem.
* ElementalPowers: Most monsters have them. While most monsters have a set one, others that don't have one can discover new abilities by fusing with one that does have one.
** The monsters that do come with powers almost always will transform into another creature once they hit level 20.

* LethalJokeCharacter: Nyuels. They have sucky stats, no offensive magic except for mix magic, their inherent auto-property is poison resistance (which means that they can resist ONE spell in the game, which can ONLY be produced by traps, which Koh is more likely to step on anyway), and even when they turn into upgraded Battnels they don't really improve much. However, their magic is a healing spell (useful for keeping Koh alive), and they get 50 mp (half of their max, worth ~4 heal spells) from any herb. Free healing? Yes please.

Nico immediately falls for Koh afterwards when she realizes he's calling '''her''' a woman, and she's noticeably happy about it too.]] Could also explain why Koh is such a ladies' man.

* AwesomeYetPractical: U-Boat's Hidden Magic [=DeRock=], when used as Mixture Magic, summons Seiryu, the water dragon, to attack everything in the room. Great for when you're surrounded by 20+ monsters from a trap. And it is awesome.
** The same goes for all of the bird monster, Dream, as well, whose Mixture Magic attacks are the most powerful and most impressive in the whole game, perhaps to compensate for the fact that it's otherwise virtually useless as a fighting monster (it can hypnotize other monsters into sleeping though).
** Not to mention the Gold Sword and Mirror/Diamond Shield. None of these items rust, make them very useful as long-term equipment. The Diamond Shield has the highest defense rating of any shield to start with, and mirror shields will reflect magic away from you.
** The Live Shield deals damage to a monster whenever you are attacked, and you don't have to do anything for it to work. Sadly, it is not immune to rust traps.
*** However, rust traps only effect equipment you're actually wearing. You can preserve the effectiveness of any equipment from rust traps by taking it off when you're not using it.
** The almost-impossible-to-find Trained Wand is immune to rust traps, bolstered by red sand, ''and'' improves the power of mixture magic. It's so rare as to be nearly nonexistent unless you [[spoiler: feed items to a Barong until you get the right one]].
*** The Life Wand is immune to rust traps and while it only deals 1 HP per hit (and can't be enhanced), it ''gives you that 1 HP''. Best used when Koh also consumes Mahell seed, which boosts his attack speed.
** The Acid Rain ball kills ALL monsters in a room dead, no matter how high their level.
*** Some water and wind monsters on higher levels won't get killed by it, but still take heavy damage, enough to kill them with one more shot with a sword or wand.
