* BechdelTest: Passes, although barely. There are three major named female characters, they do regularly converse with one another, but rarely without the presence of male characters, and when they're alone, while they DO talk about marriage, that's not the only thing they discuss.

Added DiffLines:

* SequelHook: Throughout the plot, multiple characters mention that Treasure Animatus are not restricted to Paris, or even France. In the final final cutscene, [[spoiler: Marie shows up on the Doctor's doorstep with a map to several of them located in Italy]].

** In a greater sense, the multiple {{Sequel Hook}}s strewn about the latter third of the game, as [[spoiler: Lautrec and Sophie depart for Italy once you complete Chapter 7]].

** ArbitraryHeadcountLimit: Justified. You can only carry (and therefore use in battle) up to three Treasure Animatus at once into a labyrinth, but that's practicality, since the items vary in size between hairpins and suits of armour.

* InfinityPlusOneSword: There are four, one for each of the "main" spirit types, available in the jewel shop from around the middle of the game. You will only be able to afford to buy ONE of them in a single playthrough and only if you managed to complete ALL of the optional dungeons with perfect or near-perfect results in battles and found all of the treasure chests - there simply is just barely enough gems in the game to afford them. With luck, you'll get them before you do the final, hardest, optional quest. Without luck, you'll get them before the TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon. Without any luck whatsoever, you'll only save up enough gems to afford them in the post-ending play (you don't actually need them that badly to defeat the final boss).

** Lautrec is most definitely not an "adventurer", how dare you suggest that.



* TwoLinesNoWaiting: Some quests become available only after their preceding quests in the corresponding plot line have been completed and may be tied into the main story progression (such as [[spoiler:Jean and Paul's]] HeelFaceTurn, Marie's secret being revealed, Sophie's ongoing argument with her mother, Claude's affections for Milady, etc) which sometimes leads to a feeling of disconnect as you hop from one subplot to another, particularly in Chapter 7 when each of them start getting final episodes.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Nico only makes appearances in a handful of dialogue scenes and anime cutscenes, all of them pertaining to the core plot. Once it's over, you're not seeing him ever again with little reason as to why.

* AndTheAdventureContinues: Chapter 7 is a PostScriptSeason of sorts, tying up the personal plot lines of each character and wrapping up the story of the titular knights in the aftermath of what happened in the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon.



* OldMaid: Milady constantly jokes at Sophie's expense that her running around adventuring with Lautrec has already turned her into a ChristmasCake.

* AsYouKnow: Used in order to fill the player in on information about French history they wouldn't otherwise be aware of, sometimes at the cost of making various characters seem ill-informed.

Added DiffLines:

* OneSteveLimit: Averted for historical accuracy. Jean was a very common name for French men of the time, and some historical figures have similar sounding names as well. Most of the game characters go by their last names or titles (or both) to avoid confusion; historical figures go by full names plus their titles in dialogue for the same reason.
