* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The Mysterious Girl has shades of this during the fight with her and [[spoiler:Bahamut]]. People who have played ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' would think to [[spoiler:cast Reflect on their party to reflect Bahamut's Megaflare]], right? Only problem is, the Mysterious Girl uses "Black Hole" [[spoiler:just before Bahamut uses Megaflare]], which removes any status buffs from the party, ''[[spoiler:including Reflect]].'' Also counts as a WrongGenreSavvy on the player's part. When [[spoiler:Bahamut]] eventually turns on her, she tries to [[spoiler:cast Reflect on herself to boot, but Bahamut's [[CutscenePowerToTheMax cutscene power maxes out]] and he uses Mega Flare on her before she can complete the spell]].
** She also shows shades of this in her overall scheme. First thing she does as seen in the Lunarians' Tale is [[spoiler:head to the Red Moon and enslave Bahamut, the most powerful Summon there is, and uses him to conquer Baron, the strongest nation on Earth, and brainwash Cecil]]. She then uses Baron's airship fleet to collect a majority of the Crystals since hey, Cecil's TheHero, so many of his former allies that are the world's leaders and protect the Crystals are suspicious but ultimately trust him.[[note]]Look at Yang's Tale, his adviser warned him about Baron and Cecil but Yang trusted Cecil and didn't believe the adviser, and thus Fabul was on very short notice to defend itself when the Red Wings arrived.[[/note]] She also enslaves the other Eidolons, thereby depriving Rydia of her summons and giving herself an army of super-powered minions to help her with her task.

* {{Expy}}: Luca, the dwarven WrenchWench, seems suspiciously similar to [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger another]] Creator/SquareEnix [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger gadgeteer named Lucca]].
** Not exactly. Luca was in the original Final Fantasy IV which was made and released well before Chrono Trigger. To be fair, however, she just had the creepy dolls and none of the WrenchWench qualities at that point, so...

* {{Expy}}: Luca, the Luca. While she was originally just a dwarven WrenchWench, seems princess with a few creepy dolls in VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV, she's since grown up to become a WrenchWench suspiciously similar to [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger another]] Creator/SquareEnix [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger gadgeteer named Lucca]].

* 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. ''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.)

Added DiffLines:

* CallBack: The FMV intro shows both Yang and Ursula performing the same kata that Yang was doing in the FMV intro in later versions of the original game.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: At one point, Palom teaches Leonora black magic, and you're put in a battle where you have to use it on a dummy to advance the plot. You can also use your magic on Palom, making him object...and it's possible (by doing so some twenty-five times without ever hitting your target) to run out of MP. If you do, he asks how you managed to run out of MP and uses an ether on you to recover it.

*** Tokita's involvement in this game may also explain the Tale system present, which is reminiscent of ''LiveALive''.
