** To simplify the character’s ranks: for the first half of the game, Benjamin is a Knight (only person capable of using swords), Kaeli’s the White Mage, Phoebe’s the Black Mage, Tristam’s the Thief, and Reuben’s the Warrior. For the second half, Tristam’s the Ninja (no change from the first half of the game, Dragon Claw access and he’s faster), Reuben’s the Monk (access to White/Holy and Life, extra HP and physical damage), Kaeli’s the Priest (uses “maces”, or rather axes, most Healing spells, her first uest is to try and heal a dying forest) and Phoebe’s the Red Mage (access to nearly every single spell, significant HP penalty). Benjamin’s the Paladin who can do nearly anything. [[ShoutOut The entire cast is a homage to the original game!]]

* SpiritualSuccessor: Final Fantasy Mystic Quest is actually more like a spiritual successor to the early VideoGame/SaGa games. It was made by the same team that made [[VideoGame/SaGa3 SaGa 3 / Final Fantasy Legend III]], and its basic combat mechanics are taken directly from that installment, while its world (four separate areas connected by a giant tower with the dark lord at the top) heavily resembles [[VideoGame/MakaiToshiSaGa Makai Toshi SaGa / Final Fantasy Legend I]].

* OddballInTheSeries: Interestingly, this game was developed by the same team as ''VideoGame/{{SaGa 3}}'' (and even shares some enemy sprite graphics and mechanics with it), which is also the oddball in [[VideoGame/SaGa its own series]].

Not to be confused with ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyAdventure'', whose [[MarketBasedTitle European title]] is ''Mystic Quest''.[[note]]This is because no Final Fantasy game had been released before in Europe, so oddly they launched it as the first and dropped the Final Fantasy name. ''This'' game became ''Mystic Quest Legend'', without being connected to ''The Final Fantasy Legend'', which was a renamed ''VideoGame/SaGa''. Confusing, right?[[/note]]

* CrutchCharacter: Literally everyone that joins your party: since they don't level up, you will always be several levels below them, and get to spend your time playing catch up. By the time they leave your party, you'll likely be even with or stronger than them, which means it's time for them to leave and be replaced with someone who's stronger than you once more. The worst offender is Kaeli: she's your first party member and joins at level 7, but quickly gets poisoned and taken out of the party to recover. When she joins you much, much later, she's apparently recovered so well that she's now level ''31'', despite spending that time ''bedridden''.

* ReviveKillsZombie:
** Naturally, since this is a ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' game. Using the Heal spell also inflicts random status effects on some monsters, including petrification, which leads to instant death. Thanks to a programming bug in the game, [[spoiler:the Dark King can handily be defeated with Cure magic]] with each cast doing over 10k damage, compared to standard spells doing a few thousand damage at best. Epic.
** Cure doing damage is played straight with the undead Flamerus Rex boss and its later pallete swap, as well as against a few Undead {{mook}}s, with Cure being referred to as a "zombie attack" when its weakness is displayed to the player.
** In truth, Benjamin's White Magic can easily be his most devastating; on top of everything mentioned above, Life and Exit both work offensively in battle as ''[[OneHitKill instant death spells]]'' against anything less than a boss, and even a few of the earlier ones can't handle it. (For example, Kaeli can get an instant dose of revenge against the Minotaur that poisons her.)

Your goal, of course, is to find the four monsters who have stolen the Crystals and slay them set things right. But are things really as they seem?

* HowToBecomeALoveInterest: Kaeli and Phoebe ding this somewhat, although the characterization ends up being a bit too shallow to really go anywhere (and Ben ends up leaving them both behind at the end anyway). That said:
** Kaeli: FirstGirlWins, HeroesWantRedheads, and a FriendToAllLivingThings.
** Phoebe: LastGirlWins, RedMage, and being the only one tough enough to trod into the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon with our hero.

* ConvectionSchmonvection: One of the dungeons, the Lava Dome, is inside a giant active volcano. You enter through the volcano's mouth and hunt down the boss with the Crystal of Fire inside the dome of a volcano filled with boiling lava. And when you beat him, it ''erupts'', throwing you harmlessly across the continent.
