** The series as a whole is considered the modern reigning champion of this trope, along with the ''ShinMegamiTensei'' series. Oh, and ''[=DS=]'' was published by ''Creator/{{Atlus}}'', ''[=ShinMegaTen's=]'' developer. Coincidence? Pfft, no.

* The description of the Dragon Bone Smasher [[{{Manga/Berserk}} sounds awfully similar to another sword in a similarly themed world.]]

* DiscOneNuke: The crescent falchion in 4-1. Although it can carry you pretty far into the game if you know what you're doing.

** Another early game nuke for a strength character is the Dozer Axe. You need to beat the Vanguard in either the Tutorial or world 4-1, but then you can go to Blacksmith Ed in 2-1 to turn any +6 axe weapon into the Dozer Axe. The weapon is very heavy and no stat scaling, bu it does impressive base damage for how early in the game you an acquire it.

** There are items that cannot be found without the right World Tendency. Plus there are several visible side areas that can't be accessed and [=NPCs=] with side quests that can't be completed without the right Tendency. It's easy for players to get stuck trying to figure out a side quest or how to get into an area without realizing that they need to change the Tendency (which is itself a GuideDangIt). Probably the most notorious example is Lord Rydell in the Tower of Latria. You find him in his cell easily and you're given a definite clue as to where the key to his cell is, so you just need to find it, right? Wrong. You need to get Pure White World tendency for World 3 and then locate the key in World 3-2. It doesn't help that keys to cells and floors are already all over the first stage of the Tower of Latria and the clue you get can easily be interpreted as hinting that one of the Fat Officials in Worlds 1 or 2 is holding the key (and ''even then'' Fat Officials in 1-3 already hold keys to prison cells holding other [=NPCs=]. The Internet is still rife with gamers demanding to know how they can save Lord Rydell after they've wasted hours trying in vain to find the right key.

* CriticalHit: Counter-attacks and backstabs are the most basic ways of achieving this, however some weapons have 'sweet spots' that deal extra damage when you strike an enemy with a certain part. Note that counter-attacks can be triggered on any enemy whose attacks you can block; those Blue-Eyed Knights? One good counter-attack (which is actually easy enough to do ''consistently'') and they're done for the count. You can, in fact, kill everything in 1-1 with a single counter attack before you even level up.
