* {{Tomboy}}: The game explicitly calls Alena this. However, she's ''actually'' more of a straight up ActionGirl.

* ArtificialStupidity: The [=AI=] in Chapter 5 of the NES version, no matter what mode you set it to, is ''deeply'' stupid. In fact, Clift/Cristo/Kiryl's AI is so famously stupid (constantly casting Beat/Whack and Defeat/Thwack over and over) that it was referenced in future DQ games. And there's no option to turn it off and control your party members manually; only TheHero can be given specific instructions each turn. Thankfully, this flaw is rectified in the remakes (as well as in all future installments of the Dragon Quest series).
** Could be averted (in the NES game) with a specific Game Genie code that gives you manual control over the other party members.
** This was actually referenced in ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIX''; after you dress yourself up as Kiryl, Stella will comment on the idiot AI in the NES version.
** Also referenced in Kiryl's Coup de Grace in ''[[VideoGame/DragonQuestMonsters Battle Road Victory]]'', as mentioned below in TookALevelInBadass.
** Referenced again ''VideoGame/DragonQuestHeroesTheWorldTreesWoeAndTheBlightBelow'' with Kiryl's Coup de Grace as he continuously cast Thwack and it continues to miss before getting angry enough to summon lots of dark energy and proceed to blast everything in the area.

* GodIsFlawed: The BigGood of the game, the Zenith Dragon, is responsible for a remarkable amount of suffering thanks to a particularly cruel enforcement of Zenithian law. [[spoiler:The Hero is the love child of a forbidden union between a Zenithian woman and a human woodcutter. After he or she is born, the Zenith Dragon smites the father with lightning and forces the mother to return to Zenithia and abandon her child. The woodcutter's father ends up a broken and bitter old man, and he doesn't recognize The Hero. You meet a Zenithian woman later who is heavily implied to be the Hero's mother, but she never explicitly identifies herself]]. While the story gives you all the pieces to put this together, no one calls him out on it, though Maya does point it out in [[FlawedExportForYou Party Talk]].
