* FacialCompositeFailure: In Origins, the protagonists find that TheEmpire has put up these kinds of posters around Pherkad. The [[BlatantLies descriptions]] on the posters accuse Guillo of [[WouldHurtAChild kidnapping children]], Milly of [[TheSandiego rampant kleptomania]], and Sagi of ''marriage fraud.'' Their reactions are priceless.

But for the love of God, remember to turn off the voices on the first one. Talk about phoning it in. [[note]]This was because the voice acting was recorded in ''Japan'', with the few English-speaking voice actors they had on-hand. Fans of ''MetalWolfChaos'' or ''{{Shenmue}}'' may recognize some of the actors as a result.[[/note]] If you do want to hear the voices (Rockin' NarmCharm!) make sure to set the audio settings to surround sound, otherwise everybody will sound like they're talking through a cardboard tube (which was supposed to simulate the feeling that you're really listening in from another world, but ended up sounding like poor audio quality). And please, until you're at the end of the game, do ''not'' watch the opening video, unless you don't mind knowing every major event [[spoiler:save one]] in advance.

Misuse. This isn't an Audience Reaction.
* PlayingThePlayer: [[spoiler:Most players will conclude that the first game's blatant cutscenes about the possibility of a spy in the party are a RedHerring. GenreSavvy players might take it a step further and conclude there really is a spy precisely because it seems like so much of a RedHerring, albeit with a twist such as the spy being forced to spy against his or her will. ''Nobody'' will conclude the spy is not only real and utterly unrepentant, but ''the main character''.]]

* BoringButPractical: The FinalBoss is a BarrierChangeBoss, but beyond that doesn't really have any special offensive gimmicks and only one finishing move. But he hits ''really'' hard. Hard enough to slowly wear you down the longer the fight drags on.

Lets Play is not a trope.
** KleptomaniacHeroFoundUnderwear: A few times you find mentions of clothes, including one that chastises you for looking through a schoolgirl's closet. [[spoiler:Amusingly, this doesn't change when you're in control of Xelha]].

[[VindicatedByHistory Over the years]], both the games have gotten [[CultClassic some recognition]] as excellent [=RPGs=] for [[GameCube a system]] that didn't have too many. Dig up a used copy and your gaming dollars will be well spent.

** Mintaka, capital of Alfard, being the name of a star is indeed helpful, but not necessarily to this fandom.
