Added DiffLines:

* MagicKnight: The knight class - decent growth with swords and most stats, learns the first four levels of a randomly-chosen non-Star element, and will occasionally follow up a physical attack with a casting of a spell (any spell learned, either via level or by tutoring) in the same action. With the mentoring system, theoretically any physical fighter can become one as well.

** Also some random character names and some item names fall under this. Even before [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs obviously nutty names]] were introduced in later installments this game surprisingly had Russian (and possibly other) quite arbitrary words for names. You could get characters named Rubashka ("shirt"), Balalaika (a national music instrument), Mazurka (a Russian name for a Polish dance), [[VodkaDrunkenski Vodka]] (you know this one) and one of the emblem items was called "Pravda Necklace" which would be "Necklace of the Truth".

** Even worse in the original Japanese, because of its ''even less mature'' name. "Wee-wee" would be a more accurate translation.

** The PSP and DS remake gave us the Demonhall Mirror. Like Cave of Ordeals 3 this one had 9 [[StoneWall Galactic Demons]] in a 3x3 formation. However it has ''2'' EXP +50 effect and the monsters are of higher levels and tiers. However you have to fight you way through BonusBosses such as Serra Winguard, The alt. Overlord, Laharl's dad's vassals and [[VideoGame/Disgaea2CursedMemories Adell and Rozalin]] before getting to the grinding first.

* LateArrivalSpoiler: [[spoiler:Flonne's transformation into a Fallen Angel in the Good Ending]] isn't that big of a spoiler after having spent almost all of her following appearances in her latter form. The same goes for [[spoiler:Kurtis returning as a Prinny]].

* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: The Overlord of the Alternate Netherworld who is so big that only his foot is visible. When Laharl and Etna snark that he's too big to see if his boasts about his power are really true, he decides to split himself into several {{Doppelganger}}s to better represent his power.

* HopelessBossfight: [[spoiler: 6-4 Writhing Shadow]]Shadow [[spoiler:in which you face a Lv. 75 Overlord and his copies]] as normally most players won't be anywhere close to that level by the time they reach him, [[spoiler:eventually leading to Krichevskoy's lv. 300+ vassals joining in for the rematch]]. Players can avert it on a second playthrough or through aggressive grinding.
