* WakeUpCallBoss: Yes, despite the games being [[NintendoHard Wizardry Hard]], there are bosses can crank the difficulty up even higher. Special mention goes to Fenrir; the party has yet to escape PerpetualPoverty, or have the levels/skills to fight effectively. Adding to the problem, first stratum enemies and FOEs don't yield enough experience to make grinding easy.

* ApocalypseHow: [[spoiler: ''The Millennium Girl'' reveals one of the few safety measures the Yggdrasil Project installed into the trees: Gungnir Units, weaponry designed to destroy the core at any cost - which is implied to be significantly higher than even conventional nuclear weapons. However, only two of the seven trees were fitted with the devices - Etria's and Gotham's. When the Etrian Yggdrasil started showing signs of instability, there was a party of adventurers ready to stop the activation of the Gungnir Unit and end the threat before it spiraled out of control. Gotham had no such luck, resulting in a massive disaster that leveled it and its surroundings.]]

* BraggingRightsReward: Ameno-Habakiri, the strongest katana (arguably, due to other katanas a step under it also giving decent stat boosts), which can be obtained by selling a monster drop from the ultimate BonusBoss. However, by the time you get it, your party will be so strong there's next to nothing worth using it on. Taken UpToEleven in ''The Drowned City'' where the katana has 8 free forge slots... and forging in each one requires another of the drop. Somewhat averted in the Untold games - completing Story Mode of ''The Millennium Girl'' will give the player access to this weapon even if they haven't accessed the BonusDungeon, while ''The Fafnir Knight'' still has DLC bosses that can be even more challenging than the ultimate boss.

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Oddly enough, it cheats ''in your favour'' with regards to certain NPCs that join your party in battles (and ''only'' in battles, making it difficult to see their stats from the menu). Datamining reveals that their skill point distribution would require more points than what would be allowed with their given level, along with some of them having unique equipment that would be ridiculously powerful in comparison to what is normally available.

* DevelopersForesight: In ''The Millenium Girl'', guests [[spoiler:Ren and Tlachtga]] have lines recorded for some very unlikely occurrances on your first mission, including if the enemy flees, if they level up, and even if you get a Game Over, the latter two of which are difficult to have happen since they're so many levels ahead.

* NonEntityGeneral: The exact nature of you, the guild leader, is never made clear in the non-story modes of the games, especially since your party can be completely changed at any point you have access to the guild headquarters. One possible way to avert this is to create a character that represents you and then keep that character in your party at all times.
