** Sometimes, if you talk to Mayor Mayde after completing an island, he'll remark that sometimes he worries so much about Maribel that it makes him sick. At the time, you probably consider it a figure of speech, [[spoiler:but he in fact ''does'' become critically ill after the events in Mardra/Hubble.]]

* GambitRoulette: Played by [[spoiler:GOD]] of all people. Blocked entirely for plot contents. [[spoiler:God has set up his battle with [[BigBad Orgodemir]] so that his four Spirits can be revived if they fell. He sealed his warrior Melvin away for the Hero to gain and add strength to his party. The Hero was about to be born in a DoomedHometown, but God saved him and moved him to the continent of Estard in the future when the Ruins could be used. The Hero was originally a child marked with the Aqua Spirit's brand -- but only half, his father Sharkeye was not killed, only Sealed in ice until needed so that the Hero can gain the entire seal. Estard, on the other hand, was the ONLY island that was spared from Orgodemir's destruction. On that island was the Ruins that allow the Hero to go into the past and save all the worlds. The shards to get to each world are arranged in difficulty to allow the Hero to grow. Then, right after the Hero has killed Orgodemir, the revival ceremony to revive God is allowed to finally work. Sadly, right after that is the Body Snatcher incident, but... God's Gambit works perfectly.]]

** Played straight in the original with [[spoiler:Maribel, with no warning. Hope she wasn't carrying anything useful, like the Bless Staff or Tiny Medals... [[{{Unwinnable}} or that empty bottle]]. No idea what would happen if she was holding the [=DarkRuby=], which would normally be taken from you later beyond your control.]]

* TimeyWimeyBall: ''Oh yeah''. There isn't much mention as to how many years have passed between the past and present, made even more confusing once you revisit previous locations and characters while working on other locations.

There isn't much mention as to how many years have passed There's no static amount of time set between the present and the past and present, made even more confusing once version of any island (it's approximately several hundred years), so you revisit previous locations and characters while working on other locations.end visiting certain townships at multiple points in history.

* {{Tsundere}}: Maribel, who's heavy on the ''tsun-tsun'' and not so much with the ''dere-dere'' for most of the game.

to:

* {{Tsundere}}: Maribel, who's heavy on Maribel is an interesting case; she actually appeared before the ''tsun-tsun'' and not ''Tsundere'' trope was properly codified in Japan, so much with she doesn't do the ''dere-dere'' for most of the game.flip so much as she simply mellows out over time.

* DarkerAndEdgier: This may just be the darkest ''Franchise/DragonQuest'' ever. While previous and future entries often dealt with some rather dark material, [=DQ7=] dives headlong into stuff like racism, slavery, ''multiple'' acts of genocide, horrific natural disasters, the brutality of war, and more.

** Additionally, Melvin/Mervyn, a paladin who was a warrior of God, joins your party, yet he is only slightly stronger than you are or even ''weaker''. Except that [[SealedGoodInACan he had been sealed away for God knows how long]] -- not staying in shape.

Except that [[SealedGoodInACan he had been sealed away for God knows how long]] -- not staying in shape. A DLC dungeon in the 3DS version further addresses this: [[spoiler:the Almighty intended to give Mervyn his strength back upon awakening, but instead gave that power to Priestess Jacquelyn so she could cleanse Alltrades Abbey of the evil that had tainted it during the main story. Mervyn has no problems with this, and is pleased that it was used for such a good cause.]]

* ContinuitySnarl: After your first fight (against Slimes, of course), Kiefer's reaction suggests this is the first time he's ever encountered monsters, let alone fought some. Then ''VideoGame/DragonQuestMonsters Caravan Heart'' came out, which consists of the Kiefer's childhood adventures.

** But here's where this is arguably averted: In ''[[VideoGame/DragonQuestMonsters Caravan Heart]]'' Keifer didn't fight. His monsters did.
