* KarmicTransformation: Deathpal/Hackrobat. [[spoiler:After transforming all of the humans in L'Arca to animals (and vice verse), he himself [[HumanityEnsues becomes human]] due to being drained of his power.

He's reduced to using his scary voice to intimidate other monsters, because if they saw him they would attack him.

Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical: Have everyone master the Dancer and Sailor professions - the ultimate ability for the Sailor is Lightning. This is an ability that hits ''everything'' on the field, whereas Muscle Dance just hits a group.

* AntiGrinding: Until you reach certain late-game areas or Disc 2, each area you visit has a [[{{Cap}} Level Cap]] on how far you can take your class/skill grinding. [[GuideDangIt You aren't really informed of this; battles simply stop counting towards your class mastery]]. Thankfully, it takes longer to level up in this game compared to nearly all other Dragon Quest games, except maybe 8.
** Only for your class level. There is no restriction for your character's battle level.

* ArtificialStupidity: Some of the guest characters can be stupid, such as using herbs when not needed or "observing the situation" rather than just ''killing the enemies''. Fortunately they don't waste inventory items.



* BittersweetEnding: For some towns, you don't give them their happy endings. Greenthumb Garden is a great example.



* GuestStarPartyMember: Numerous guests "join" you and some even contribute in combat. You cannot control them.
** [[spoiler: Keifer, somewhat infuriatingly.]]



* MarathonLevel: Dharma Temple/Alltrades Abbey.



* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: Great job, you resurrected God! [[spoiler:Wait a minute... he's starting to enslave everyone... and seal off the world again.]]

to:

* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: You ''finally'' made it back to Alltrades Abbey... oh wait now they built an arena. [[LampshadeHanging In an impossibly short amount of time - the characters are just as surprised as the player is.]]
