'''''Bravely Default''''' (known as ''Bravely Default: Flying Fairy'' in Japan and ''Bravely Default: Where The Fairy Flies'' everywhere else) is an EasternRPG for the Nintendo3DS developed by Silicon Studio and published by SquareEnix. It is a SpiritualSuccessor to ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyThe4HeroesOfLight Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light]]'', and in fact was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen early in development conceived as a sequel to it]]. What's unique about this game is the [[TitleDrop eponymous Bravely Default]] battle system. You can choose to use Braves to get extra turns or Defaults to delay and store them for extra effects, adding a new layer of strategy to your usual turn-based RPG fare.

* NewMediaAreEvil: Pretty much any new fad or change from tradition is part of a plot made by the villains.

* CounterAttack: The Swordmaster job specializes in these. Instead of attacking normally, they brace themselves for a certain type of attack (either physical, magical, from a specific enemy, or when at critical HP), taking reduced damage and then hitting back ForMassiveDamage. Note that certain enemies possess counterattacking skills as well, some of which can be deadly powerful (such as Cerberus's Payback, which easily scores 4000-5000 damage).

** UselessUsefulSpell: Averted, most bosses can be afflicted with many of those effects, though its usually pretty hard[[note]](success rate is affected by the user's INT and the target's MND, and bosses tend to have higher MND than {{Mooks}} for this reason)[[/note]] and Poison does noticeably less DamageOverTime to bosses than normal monsters. Even in regular encounters, Poison wears away about 10% of max HP per turn, making it impractical unless coupled with the Arcanist's Exterminate spell ForMassiveDamage.

* CastingGag: Rachel Robinson voices [[WhiteMage Holly Whyte]] who [[spoiler:in the first world]] threatens to beat Agnés within an inch of her life and heal her, repeating the process until her mind breaks - the exact thing that happened to [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Fang]] (although she was saved before it went too far), one of Robinson's other characters.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: ** When you press the X button on a skill for detailed information, this includes disclaimers such as whether it stacks with specific other skills/abilities, if ReviveKillsZombie (it does), whether you can expect it to work the same on bosses, etc. ** Bosses have special lines when you do certain stuff in battle against them. For example, try summoning Susano-o against Barbarossa. ** Likewise, when you beat a Job Master in battle they'll usually say something when you beat them. If theres more then one boss, the surviving boss will usually comment on this, either swearing to defeat you for them, or being annoyed they were beaten. [[spoiler:If you beat Victor and Victoria at the same time, they both talk to each other before the battle ends.]] ** If a character can't execute an ordered action (e.g. silenced before casting a spell), they don't lose the BP associated with that action. In the case of Silence specifically, the extra BP means they can quickly heal the ailment ''and'' take the desired action during their next turn. ** Poisoned characters take 10% of their maximum HP in DamageOverTime, but if you cast Stop on them, they poison damage stops as long as they are. ** ReviveKillsZombie even works on undead-type ''bosses'' ... except its success rate is markedly lower, and one boss (the Dragon Zombie) packs an AutoRevive of its own. You may have to end up defeating these guys the old-fashioned way.

*** Similarly, you can get do some SequenceBreaking and [=NPCs=] will comment on it. For instance, you can awaken the Fire Crystal before ever actually talking to the Shieldbeareres or entering Hartschild, which were mandatory the first time around.

* ArmorOfInvincibility: The Crystal Armor and Helm (Heavy Armor and Helmet), the Crystal Vest, Lordly Robes, Ribbon, and Royal Crown (Light Armor and Hat), and the Aegis Shield ([[CaptainObvious Shield]]) are the best defensives of their types. The team can obtain four each of the Crystal equipment and two Aegis Shields without using NewGamePlus.

* InfinityPlusOneSword: The [[spoiler:Dimension's Hasp, unlocked during either final chapter,]] has the best armaments in the game for each class hidden in its depths: Durandal (Sword), Earthbreaker (Axe), Gungnir (Spear), Demon's Rod ([[CaptainObvious Rod]]), Demon's Staff ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Staff]]), Yatagarasu (Knife), Artemis's Bow ([[RuleOfThree Bow]]), Ama-no-Murakumo (Katana), and Kaiser Knuckles ([[OverlyLongGag Knuckles]]). The Kaiser Knuckles technically grant the strongest attack stat, but are a two-handed weapon; Ama-no-Murakumo is the strongest weapon that can be used in conjunction with a shield, be dual wielded or two-handed (in the latter most case doubling it's attack power).
