* BookEnds: The opening cinematic when you start up the game shows two birds flying over the heroes at the beginning of their journey. [[spoiler: In the 3DS version, during the Jessica ending, those two birds soar past Jessica and the Hero.]]

** Some of Jessica's fanservice outfits have been dialed back. Jessica's Magic Bikini now has an actual knee-length skirt covering the bikini bottom instead of the original side-tie swim skirt, while Red is wearing short-shorts under her bearskin pelt skirt instead of her original bikini-style briefs.

** Some of Jessica's fanservice outfits have been dialed back. For example: Jessica's Magic Bikini now has an actual knee-length swim skirt covering the bikini bottom instead of in addition to the original side-tie swim skirt, while Red is mini sarong. Red's outfit was changed to her wearing short-shorts under her bearskin pelt skirt instead of her original bikini-style briefs.briefs. Funnily enough, the 3DS version of Jessica's Bunny Outfit shows ''more'' skin by changing the original strapless corset teddy into a strapless bra and short shorts.

** Marcello's attempt at warding off the Scepter's influence after first picking it up was changed from stabbing himself in the arm to throwing the dagger away and using magic to suppress it.

*** Heck, if you're ''really'' determined, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74GsPjzzYmM one can beat Rank S before obtaining the ship!]]

* DistractedByTheSexy: This is actually an ability of Jessica. Put skill points in her Sex Appeal and monsters will start missing turns just to ogle her. Her own allies, ChivalrousPervert Angelo included, are immune. ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIX'' has a similar effect through the "Style" stat, but it affects all playable characters and isn't limited to only sexy outfits.
** Both games also feature active abilities to affect opponents in this fashion (learnable by both your characters and foes) - the Puff-Puff attack in ''DQ8'' and the Sultry Dance in ''DQ9''. Entertainingly, a foe that tries to use the former move on Jessica will get demoralized because Jessica is more voluptuous, and ''they'' miss a turn instead.

** Downplayed with Castle Trodain, which is implied to have neglected its history and thus forgotten; King Trode, for example, hasn't got much of a clue about what the sceptre actually is, only that it's a great treasure ([[ArtifactOfDoom it's not]]) and it has major hocus-pocus ([[ArtifactOfDoom it does]]).

Added DiffLines:

***Similar to Snap Case is Capers. His damage output and speed make him easily one of the strongest monsters you can obtain before you get a ship and he's even a strong contender afterwards, but his lack of HP paired with his damage output falling off later makes him unsuitable for higher ranks.


Added DiffLines:

** A sufficiently [[LuckBasedMission determined]] and [[GuideDangIt informed]] player can complete the Monster Arena before facing off against [[spoiler:Dhoulmagus]] and obtain the Hero Spear, the strongest spear in terms of pure attack power you can get before post-game that also comes with the nifty effect of healing the Hero when he uses certain attacks.

** This is also the reason you shouldn't [[DistractedByTheSexy put her as the first character in the party, especially indoors]] where the camera angle can cause [[MaleGaze nice close up]].

** Golden Oldies. It's an absolutely ''hilarious'' attack that causes King Trode and a bunch of old men to appear out of nowhere and trample the enemies. Hilarious, but it requires 100 in Humanity - which means Yangus has [[MasterOfNone overspecialized himself trying to learn everything]].
