* TheCasino: One located near Alltrades Abbey... oddly in the well. Another is in a palace.

** 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.

* {{Hunk}}: The hero's dad Borkano/Pollock, who's ridiculously muscular, tanned, and has a mighty beard upon his square jaw. Being the best fisherman on the island will keep you in shape.

* 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.

* ChestMonster: As in every DragonQuest game. VII is notable for not only having standard Canniboxs and Mimics, but Evil Books, Evil Pots, and Evil Well monsters. Be careful when exploring castles.

** 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.

* RaisedByNatives: Firia, a [[HeartwarmingOrphan sweet little girl]] adopted by Pendragon, the leader of the winged Lefa tribe. She faces constant [[KidsAreCruel bullying by her peers and step-sister]], and copes as best she can... [[spoiler:And then the whole thing gets [[{{Subverted}} turned on its head]] by [[TheReveal her father admitting that she's]] ''[[TomatoInTheMirror not adopted]]''. He IS her father -- she was just born without wings, and the [[DirtyCoward cowardly]] [[TooDumbToLive dumbass]] thought it was better to let her grow up [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer treated like an outsider]] than admit she was really his own.]]
