* GossipyHens: Mrs. Lands and Mrs. Grange, who can be seen frequenting the well outside of the church to chat about various happenings around the village (and criticize their husbands' peculiarities). When the well dries up in Chapter 3, Mrs. Lands is concerned she'll lose her favorite gossip spot.

* FlowerFromTheMountaintop: Misteria, one of the two ingredients needed to treat Tim during Chapter 3, inverts this, being a magic flower that only blooms between 3:00 AM and 7:00 AM and can be found on a rock formation... in the Mine's Underground Lake. The other ingredient, Aqualin, does reside atop Twinpeak Mountain, but is simply mineral water with restorative properties.

* HeroicBSOD: Hotelo gets one when you find him on Twinpeak Mountain, unable to [[spoiler:reach Aqualin and calling himself a fool for thinking he'd be able to save Tim's life. [[QuitYourWhining Musashi chides him on how easily he gave up on Tim]] and, having already obtained Misteria from the Underground Lake, goes to get Aqualin from the top of the mountain, with only twelve hours left before Tim turns into a Vambee. Grab Aqualin and make it back to Hotelo in time, and Musashi's pep talk will have shaken Hotelo out of his funk, whereupon Musashi gives Aqualin to Hotelo so that he can zip back to the village and get the remedy to Tim. If you fail, Hotelo will leave town for good after bringing back Aqualin, and Motelo will take his place at the inn for the remainder of the game, wondering where his brother went and remarking upon how much of a shame it is that Mint is missing her father. Tim still manages to recover in the case of the latter event, though the grocery will be closed for the duration of Chapter 3.]]

Tim still manages to recover in the case of the latter event, as Musashi urges the mayor to use the remedy anyway, though the grocery will be closed for the duration of Chapter 3.3 due to Hilda's shock at her son's predicament.]]

* AstralProjection: The Lone Mist's Sublime ability, which allows Musashi to detach his soul from his body to get a better look at his surroundings. It's very handy in the dimly-lit area where the ability is found, as his ghost form naturally glows. If [[RemoteYetVulnerable his sleeping body is attacked]], the effect is broken, meaning you need to ensure Musashi is out of harm's way while using Sublime.

* CriticalHit: Musashi can randomly deal these out, designated by a flash of red light when his attack connects. Obtaining the Legendary Gloves increases the chance of landing a critical, though by asking Weaver Dinneretta to fashion the Legendary Cloth (when you find it [[spoiler:behind a cracked wall in the basement of Mannick's Restaurant]]) into the L-Gloves, the player is missing out on the equally useful Legendary Quilt (reduces tiredness to 0% and [[RegeneratingHealth recovers HP]] ''and'' BP at an increased rate), so choose wisely.

Misuse. It's Genre Savvy, not just "savvy".
* GenreSavvy: The Thirstquencher Empire decides to attack the Allucaneet Kingdom when [[TheGoodKing the king]] [[RulingCouple and]] [[TheHighQueen queen]] are away on vacation, catching Allucaneet's army by surprise. This is lampshaded in the ending.

* UnderestimatingBadassery: Many characters pass off Musashi as merely a [[JustAKid "(little) runt"]], despite him defeating Crest Guardians and the Empire's forces with ease. When Gingerelle makes this mistake after Musashi obtains the Wind Scroll and lands in the Meandering Forest, Bubbles [[GenreSavvy rightfully calls her sister out on this]] (and the fact that Gingerelle didn't apprehend Musashi when they met at the Thieves' Hideout in the previous chapter), [[TaughtByExperience for Musashi was able to defeat their Vambee Soldiers]].

Reception is not a description.
Among Square's non-''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' offerings of its age, it's famous today for two things: having a realistic in-game day/night cycle (24 minutes = 24 hours, speed octupled when Musashi is asleep) and selling like hotcakes in North America due to [[PreviewPiggybacking being packaged with the demo for]] ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''. It was also met rather nicely in the review market -- nothing spectacular sure, but it didn't bomb either; the highest points going to voices, writing, and--most notably--the music. A UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 sequel known as ''[[VideoGame/MusashiSamuraiLegend Musashi: Samurai Legend]]'' also exists, but it's considered another victim of {{Sequelitis}} for lacking much of the original's cutesy charm.

Probably the loosest interpretation ''ever'' of the legendary antics of Japanese swordsman UsefulNotes/MiyamotoMusashi, [[Creator/SquareEnix Squaresoft's]] 1998 ''Brave Fencer Musashi'' (Japanese: ''Brave Fencer Musashiden'', literally ''Brave Fencer: The Legend of Musashi'') for the original {{PlayStation}} shrinks the wandering samurai to FunSize, transports him into a fantasy world full of {{Woolseyism}}s, and sets him off on a quest to save the besieged Allucaneet Kingdom by unsealing Lumina, the [[SwordOfPlotAdvancement Sword of Luminescence]], reabsorbing its scattered powers from within [[PlotCoupon the Five Scrolls]], and [[SidetrackedByTheGoldSaucer collecting action figures of the friends and foes he meets during his exploits]]. We mean, bashing in the heads of the Thirstquencher Empire's goons until they learn not to underestimate him for being short.

* TheBrute: Fuhrer Flatski's son, Rootrick, comes off this way, being big and rude with an inexplicable [[AmericanAccents Dixie]] accent, but you never actually fight him directly.
