* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: In Porom's tale, you start out playing as Palom and Porom shortly after the events of FinalFantasyIV, and they have their signature Twincast ability. When you finally reunite them as adults, they've grown apart and can no longer use Twincast. [[spoiler:Access a cutscene in which they get a chance to reconnect, and they will relearn Twincast.]]

* HeadsIWinTailsYouLose: The Lunarian chapter reaches it's climax with [[spoiler: the destruction of the moon's crystals just in time for Goblez and Fusoya to witness the resurrection of Zeromus. FFIV veterans who know it turned out the last time Golbez and Fusoya tried to take on Zeromus might assume this is a hopeless boss fight, but you still have to damage him to the point he gets fed up with the games and uses [[SignatureMove Big Bang]]. This causes Fusoya to forcefully teleport Golbez to the Lunar Whale, leaving him to battle Zeromus alone. [[BolivianArmyCliffhanger And then the chapter ends.]]]]

* ArbitraryHeadcountLimit: Normal for the series, but especially notable in the first part of The Crystals: You can potentially start the chapter with ten characters theoretically available, you get up to six more, and yet you can only use a ''specific four characters'' out of those sixteen (and the game's ArbitraryHeadcountLimit is actually ''five'', making it all the weirder.) The other twelve just hang out on your airship and do nothing all chapter. Ostensibly, a few of them are recovering from their encounters with the Mysterious Girl, but that doesn't account for the six you might have from Rydia's and Edge's chapters.

** Repairing Calca and Brina. You need to get two rare items dropped by a certain enemy that can only be encountered in one room in the area during the waxing moon phase (easy to recognize when you enter it; there are lots of rocks and no treasure chests, jars, etc.) plus one item in a jar in the room it's connected to. There's a save point in the previous room so a tent can be used if it's the wrong moon phase, but still. Heck, you aren't even told you ''can'' repair the dolls. It is worth noting that Calcabrina's theme music plays during the battle with said enemy.

To do so you need to get two items dropped only by a specific enemy in a single room of the dolls. It last dungeon during a specific moon phase. Your only hint to any of this is worth noting that when the enemy appears, Calcabrina's theme music plays during plays. You're otherwise not told where or how the battle with said enemy.enemy appears.

The game was originally released for cell phones in Japan, and was released on UsefulNotes/WiiWare June 1, 2009 in the US. The entire game will cost 3700 Wii points total for 9 story segments (13 chapters in all). Following the success of the DS prequel in iOS / Android form, TAY is getting the same treatment, as in, it looks exactly as you'd expect the game to look as it if was on the DS. This version of the game came out in November 2013.

** Inverted with the ''Complete Collection'': For less than the price of ''After Years'' on WiiWare you get that (with all chapters), the original FF IV, and the "Interlude" chapter, all with upgraded aesthetics, making it essentially a three-for. Nice to see SE giving fans a collection worth their money.

[[spoiler:It's Kain's, and not only does he lose to it at first, it decides to not be a good little dark side and goes on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge instead of triggering a GameOver]].

* OneGameForThePriceOfTwo: The game is split into 9 downloadable segments (13 in the Japanese version), each of which must be purchased separately. To play the game in its entirety, a gamer must shell out 3700 Wii Points, much more than other WiiWare titles (unless you count other episodic games. ''VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland'', for instance, is 5000 Wii Points, all told), though 37 dollars is still considerably less than most games you'd buy in the store.)

* {{Retraux}}: Except in the PSP version, which uses that version of the game's high-resolution sprites throughout, the flashbacks (including a few playable flashbacks) use sprites from the original just for the added touch. The game itself also seems to fit this when on WiiWare, but less so when you consider that it was actually created for cell phones. Seemingly to make up for the lack of graphical change, PSP game does, however, allow players to use the original SNES versions of music originating in the game's predecessor.
