* EasierThanEasy: Picnic. ''The Fafnir Knight'' in particular, to the point where the game might as well be playing itself.[[note]]Fafnir Knight's Picnic difficulty has you do '''300%''' damage to enemies (compared to Standard difficulty) and take only 25% damage from them. In comparison, The Millennium Girl's modifiers are 133% and 33%.[[/note]]

** Want the king grimoires in ''The Millennium Girl''? If you're not insanely lucky, then get the number values on your guild card to match up, and take on a boss enemy. Even then, that only gives you a 30% chance of getting the grimoire.

** ''Untold 2's'' Flame Demon, the game's counterpart to ''Lagaard''s' Hellion. Only this time around, there's a couple twists. Firstly, the boss's HP is four times as much as it's counterpart. Secondly, it uses '''Kingly Fire''', a flame based attack which can send your entire party into single digits unless you prep with skills like Fire Wall. Thirdly, in the lead-up to using '''Kingly Fire''', it summons backup in the form of Flame Cubes, which will mop up your party by self-destructing after the fire neutralizing skills have been used up by the Boss. Only careful prep work and strategic thinking that the party hasn't really needed to use before this will see the party through.
* WeaponOfChoice: Each character class has one or two weapon types they can use, and some weapons can be used only by certain classes. In ''The Drowned City'', two weapon types, [[KnifeNut knives]] and [[ThrowTheBookAtThem books]], can be used by anyone, although ninjas can benefit more from knives.

*** Of the {{InfinityMinusOneSword}}s, Kerykeion, the penultimate staff, becomes most frustrating to fully power up, as each forge slot requires conditional drops from ''three'' different [=FOEs=]. While those enemies are easily found together, the "condition" for the item is that it has a low drop rate, forcing the player to use Formaldehydes if they want to collect those drops with consistency.

** The mage-like classes from the second game on have skills all further increase the damage you do when you hit a weakness. Alchemists have Analyze in ''Heroes of Lagaard'', Zodiacs have Singularity in ''The Drowned City'', and the Rune Masters have Runic Guidance in ''Legends of the Titan''. Analyze also returns for ''The Millennium Girl''.

** Also from ''Legends of the Titan'', Blood Surge is initially very practical, but becomes this after putting more than one or two skill points into it. At one point, it boosts your damage by 45% in return for costing 10 HP and 5 TP every turn. Further points give a 5% increase to the damage bonus, but a ''much'' higher increase to the [[CastFromHitPoints HP cost]]. Maxed out at six points, it becomes +70% damage for ''197'' HP and 10 TP per turn.

** In ''Legends of the Titan'', the Ameno-Habakiri is downgraded to the penultimate katana, now requiring the player beat a different but slightly easier BonusBoss instead. Taking its place in this trope (and taking it UpToEleven) are the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Yggdrasil weapons]], detailed above in AwesomeButImpractical.

** Tagen Battou in ''The Drowned City''. While it's capable of defeating the bonus boss in a single hit, getting the full power of the attack requires multiple turns of set-up and requires you to have multiple open slots in your party, which is a ''terrible'' idea.
