* WeaksauceWeakness: Bahamut is very weak to a Dragoon wielding dual Gungnirs. How weak? OHKO weak.
* WeWinBecauseYouDidNot: Subverted when Goldor shatters a golden crystal that the Light Warriors believe is the Earth Crystal. It turns out it was a fake that Doga had made to provide him with gold.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: ''Mortality.'' Great Magus Noah gives his student Xande the gift of Mortality. Said gift ends up driving Xande completely insane as he ended up unleashing the [[BigBad Cloud of Darkness]] on the world.

* RealityEnsues: Gold swords are about as effective as they would be in real life, and they're also just as valuable if you want to sell them.

* BrokenAesop: The DarkIsNotEvil and LightIsNotGood message is undermined in the DS UpdatedRerelease by [[WriterOnBoard extra lines]] in the pre-ending crawl [[{{Anvilicious}} going on and on]] about evil being defeated by "the ''light'' of hope." The Cloud of Darkness also applies, if only in name, though it's unclear what she was called during the flood of light.

The Ultimately subverted with the Cloud of Darkness, though -- she applies only in name (she's really a neutral OmnicidalManiac whose current tenure just happens to result from the Flood of Darkness also applies, if only in name, though it's unclear what this time), and she (or some other incarnation) was called during a byproduct of the flood Flood of light.Light as well.

* {{AFGNCAAP}}: Only in the Famicom version.

** Strictly speaking, Eureka is optional. You know, the caves with about a dozen weapons that [[spoiler: Doga and Unei gave their lives to unlock, saying they]] were all supposedly necessary? Granted, climbing [[CheckpointStarvation Crystal]] [[ItsAllUpstairsFromHere Tower]] without them is [[TooDumbToLive tantamount to suicide]] (''within the context'' of ''[[NintendoHard Final Fantasy III]]''), but there's nothing stopping you from giving it a try!

* DarkIsNotEvil: Present in the backstory, when the Dark Warriors have to save the world against abuse of the elemental powers of light. [[spoiler: They also can help out your party if they are freed, showing that they're apparently not inherent rivals to the Light Warriors.]] Also, the Dark Knight class.

* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: Desch jumps into the Tower of Owen's furnace.]] NoOneCouldSurviveThat... But when Doga is looking for people to help the Light Warriors at the end, he pops up without a scratch, and in fact quite surprised that anyone would think he'd been in mortal danger. It just took him ''that long'' to fix it.

* OneWingedAngel: No matter how human an enemy looks, they WILL be a monster after the FightWoosh. The Cloud of Darkness is an inversion, in that she looks more human during the boss fight. [[spoiler: This is especially jarring in the case of Doga and Unei, who appear to be helpful, sweet old people... Until their in-fight forms reveal them to be horrifying creatures, regardless of their good character.]]

* 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.

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.
