* LostForever: With the shutting down of Creator/{{Nintendo}}'s Wi-Fi servers for their older systems, all the Wi-Fi quest for the DS version of the game have been rendered this. Thankfully, the PC and IOS versions are tied to bestiary completion and game progress, so it's still possible to do those side quests in those versions.

** [[spoiler:Though given that they all arrived in the same area as babies on the same ship, combined with the fact that the continent is a lot smaller than it initially seems, makes this more plausible than it seems.]]

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterSelectForcing: Certain parts of the game are made much more difficult if you're not using certain jobs.
** A couple of dungeons require the entire party to be in the Mini status. Since the Mini status reduces Strength to the absolute minimum, any character that isn't a mage is effectively dead weight.
** Pretty much the only viable way to defeat Garuda in the NES version is to use Dragoons. Fortunately, the game drop several obvious hints about this.
** Every enemy in the Cave of Shadows is highly resistant to magic and multiplies when hit with any weapon other than a Katana. Any party without a Dark Knight will struggle to get through the dungeon.

The third entry in the [[RunningGag brain implodingly]] brain-implodingly]] popular ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series.



For a long time this game was called the "lost" ''Franchise/FinalFantasy,'' as it was never released anywhere outside of UsefulNotes/{{Japan}} for many years -- even after all of the other pre UsefulNotes/PlayStation games received at least one release. However, a [[VideoGameRemake remake,]] with more plot and characterization, came out worldwide on the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS, finally getting the game to a wider audience. The DS remake was again tweaked to improve some gameplay issues and has been ported to the [[UsefulNotes/IOSGames iOS,]] [[UsefulNotes/AndroidGames Android,]] [[UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable PSP,]] and on PC via UsefulNotes/{{Steam}}.

* VancianMagic: Rather than {{Mana}}, this is the system used for casting in the game. Adjusting to it (and how it changes between casting classes) is frequently cited as one of the harder parts of the game.

Added DiffLines:

* LostInTranslation: Western players are very unlikely to fall for the RedHerring of the Gold Crystal; after all, even though gold is an element, it isn't a Classical Element. In Japan however, Gold is one of their classical elements, therefore a player might be excused if they believe one of the elemental crystals was just destroyed. They might also expect there to be a wood crystal in the game somewhere.

Has a [[Characters/FinalFantasyIII character sheet.]] For ease of organization, tropes pertaining to the game's various job classes are listed there as well.



* AdaptationDisplacement: Invoked by WordOfGod, though subject to a FlipFlopOfGod -- some materials state the four orphans from Ur are now considered the same characters as the DS heroes, and the Onion Knights/Onion Kids are CanonDiscontinuity. However, spin-offs still use the Onion Knight as the game's representative hero [[note]] though Dissidia012 has Luneth and Ingus skins as DLC [[/note]], and he's mentioned to be one of the four orphans from Ur, despite the fact that in appearance and personality he's a distinct character from any of the DS heroes.

* ButThouMust: After defeating Gutsco the Rogue, you may notice that an unusual shadow is following you back through the dungeon. Naturally, this is Gutsco trying to pull a fast one on the party. Despite that fact, you have to fall for the trick to progress the story.

* [[TheManBehindTheMan The Woman Behind the Man]]: The Cloud of Darkness is more or less controlling Xande's actions to institute her release.



* NoticeThis: Hidden items are indicated with a sparkle.



* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have to Be Frogs?]]: Refia hates frogs and toads. Guess what the party needs to turn into in order to infiltrate a couple of dungeons? She even whimpers the second time it comes up. Somewhat ironic if you made her the White Magic user, which means that ''she'' has to cast the Toad spell on the party.
