* ArmorIsUseless -- Played around with. Armor reduces the amount of damage you receive if you get hit, metal armor more so than leather, at the cost of evasion and agility.
** Then there's the fact that one of the commonly recognized choices for Clare's best "armor" is a ''fancy dress'' that you buy for her in an event that occurs because you wanted her to have something to wear besides armor!
* ArtShift - Compare the characters with clothes on and clothes off. The difference is stunning.
* AwesomeButImpractical -- [[SwordBeam Star Blade]] is Rudy's most powerful attack (in terms of damage per hit) and can hit multiple enemies via piercing, but costs a whopping 60 MP per use (Rudy's a fighter, mind you, so he doesn't have much MP to begin with) -- and is considered a magic attack (meaning its affected by your Force stat). Unless you're willing to spend the time and/or money on Mind, Will, and Magic Seeds, you're better off using Wind Slash or physical attacks (especially if you're using the Fastest).
* BagOfSpilling -- Players need to finish the game at least twice before getting to keep all the loot after finishing the game.
* BeamSpam -- Rudy's Shooting Ray, which is also Light-Elemental.
* {{BFS}} -- There's a sword in-game that grants massive attack power and regenerative abilities - at the cost of attack speed ''and'' walking speed.

* BlackMagicianGirl -- Carol. She's essentially [[TheSlayers Lina Inverse]] who isn't lacking in "that" area.
* BladeOnAStick -- Marin's WeaponOfChoice.
* BonusDungeon -- The aptly named Losers' Paradise. 100 levels and the toughest bosses.
* BornLucky -- Karen has the highest luck stat of all playable characters and it extends into story events. When she accidentally shoots a random person, it turns out to be a mugger. When she shoots at a monster and it misses, the shot dislodges a rock that squishes her foe. Her outrageous luck baffles Rudy on several occasions.

* BraggingRightsReward -- Many of the characters' "best" equipment comes from the Loser's Paradise or Dice Dungeon--both of which are late-game dungeons, where there's not many enemies left to challenge (The Fastest is excluded [[GameBreaker for]] [[BribingYourWayToVictory obvious]] [[CherryTapping reasons]]).
** The Shining Ring, which casts [[BeamSpam Shooting Ray]] and can only be equipped by Rudy, costs 2000000G -- that's as many as two millions. By the time you have enough to get it, you're on the Dark Lord's doorstep.
* BribingYourWayToVictory -- Semi-example: the Developer's Room sells almost every weapon and armor in the game; even though you aren't paying real money to buy game money to buy in-game stuff, there's still the fact that you're buying it from a place called the "Developer's Room". Then there's the much more interesting fact that they sell the [[GameBreaker Fastest]] for 50,000G...
* CatGirl -- Marin.
* ClassyCatBurglar -- Ruby
* CoolSword -- Lots of them.
* DeadPanSnarker -- Rudy, although most of the time he doesn't verbalize his sarcasm.
* {{Dojikko}} -- Alicia. If there's a trap nearby she'll trigger it accidentally.
* DevelopersRoom -- During a second playthrough, visiting the kingdom's and talking to the border guard, you will be invited to this place. A lot of staff members will reveal a few interesting things about the game, and provide you with useful advice. There's even a guy selling powerful items. This is also where you unlock the BonusDungeon.
* EasterEgg -- Plenty. Take Jim's wig for example. Some guy in the bar will mention it if you're S rank. Once he runs out of missions to give you, he'll be wearing it the next time you visit him.

* FunbagAirbag -- Rudy meets Ruby, after descending three levels due to [[{{Dojikko}} Alicia]].
* {{Golem}} -- Ruby can summon these, one at a time.
* GiantEnemyCrab -- the boss at the end of one of the dungeons. Not only is it big and tough, it also breathes fire.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere -- One on the dungeons has a giant floating goldfish for a final boss. There's also a giant beetle at the bottom on the Dragon's Lair, but it's well hidden and impossible to reach during your first visit (the game takes over the controls when you enter the region, and will avoid it completely).

* HotSpringsEpisode
* InSeriesNickname -- The hero's default name is Rudy, but the player can name him whatever he likes. Several party members use various nicknames to address the main character instead in parts where their lines are voiced.
* LaserBlade -- the [[Franchise/StarWars Lightsaber]] is one of the best weapons in the game. It drains mana while attacking, but by the time you get one, it won't really matter.
* MagicKnight -- Arguably, Rudy. [[spoiler:Also Claire, if you manage to unlock her.]]
* MeaningfulName[=/=]PunnyName -- Claire is a lightning mage. ''Eclair'' is French for Lightning. (This game was made long before ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' used the same pun.)
* MegaManning -- Rudy learns his ultimate attack after ''[[RetiredBadass his dad]]'' uses it on him, dropping the son to his knees. When Rudy executes it his old man goes down, flat on his back.
* NewGamePlus -- And how. As you proceed to beat the game with the various girls' endings, you'll unlock a whole slew of additional goodies including a new character, a DevelopersRoom where you can buy most rare armor/weapons from the get-go, a massive BonusDungeon with 101 floors, a map option that lets you see floor layouts, stairs and enemies, the ability to start with 50% or 100% of your previously earned experience, the ability to start with your previously obtained equipment and items and 6 additional difficulty levels. (most of them with increased experience and item drop multipliers to compensate for the stat buffs enemies get)
* NonHumanSidekick -- Shell.
* OccidentalOtaku -- Parodied with one of the guys in the DevelopersRoom: a fat guy (one of the translators for the English Version) jogging in the atrium who likes the word '[[GratuitousJapanese oppai]]' a lot.
* OutdoorBathPeeping -- Actually important to one girl's plot.
