* HeKnowsAboutTimedHits: Ahrah serves as a tutorial for the controls as you learn new skills. Due to the game being ported across numerous platforms, he will say to press specific buttons while the text will show the corresponding button to that platform. For example, using an Xbox controller for the PC port will show the Xbox controller buttons.



* {{Irony}}: General Gaius believes that [[spoiler: Dust is merely his friend Cassius under a spell by the Moonbloods.]] The ironic part is that [[spoiler: this is ''true''. While this in no way justifies the genocide, the Moonbloods cast a spell that would call upon the Sen-Mithrarin, one warrior made from two opposite souls that could always keep each other in balance. Cassius was the fearless warrior half, and became Sen-Mithrarin along with a boy named Jin, who'd killed him for murdering his family of Moonblood sympathizers. They hoped that Jin's conscience would temper Cassius's bloodthirstiness, but the resulting gestalt entity has his own personality. (Although the player is often [[{{Railroading}} railroaded]] into doing good things by the plot.)]]
