Added DiffLines:

* SkeltonKey: Downplayed. In Fireburg, Tristam gives you a multi-key which he says will open any locked door. You use it once (to enter the house of a Fireburg resident so he can upgrade your bombs into grenades), and it becomes of no use for the rest of the game.

* BlindIdiotTranslation: Though the game was developed for the U.S. (and released there first), the names "Iflyte" and "Zuh" are applied to enemies that would be called ''Ifrit'' and ''Zu'' in any other Final Fantasy game.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyGameHell: The game has the opposite difficulty curve to most other ''Final Fantasy'' games, as the hardest parts are actually encountered early on, with your attacks having an annoying habit of constantly missing and the enemies quite easily able to score critical hits. Once you've levelled up and got some better equipment, things quickly even out.

It finally got some acknowledgement in ''VideoGame/TheatrhythmFinalFantasy: Curtain Call'', which includes the regular and boss battle themes and adds Benjamin as a playable character. (This is also the first time ''Mystic Quest'' has received any kind of ShoutOut or spinoff inclusion since the original game was released.)

Added DiffLines:

* 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]].

Added DiffLines:

* NewWorldTease: Traversing the Focus Tower between Fireburg and Windia the player can find a staircase leading to a very small section of [[spoiler: Doom Castle, the final level of the game,]] long before the player reaches it, properly. If nothing else, the kick-ass music and awesome rock guitar riffs should be enough of a reminder to the player that this location has future importance.

* LostForever: Any treasure chests you leave in a one-time area such as Falls Basin cannot be reclaimed. As a variation, you can return to the Charm Claw's chest later on if you skipped it by accident, but if you already have the better Dragon Claw, you won't pick it up because you have something better, leaving a hole in your collection.

* ConvectionSchmonvection:
** One of the dungeons is a giant volcano. The Lava Dome, where the boss guarding the Crystal of Fire hides out, has its entrance at the ''mouth'' of the volcano.
** And let's not ignore the fact that when you beat said boss, the volcano ''erupts'', too, leaving you... completely unscathed? [[FridgeLogic Huh?]]

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 ''SaGa''. Confusing, right?[[/note]]

** {{Cap}}: Specifically, level caps. As noted, all of your party members have set levels that don't go up, giving them hard caps. (Kaeli and Reuben max out at 31, Tristam a measly 23, and Phoebe is the highest at 34.) The game doesn't allow you to go higher than level 41, however, and since you don't actually gain any actual stat bonuses at 41, the "real" level cap for Ben is 40.
*** Surprisingly, you do earn added spell slots if you keep amassing XP (the counter continues to climb) after level 41.

** And he's not sad about his hometown being destroyed. Makes you wonder, doesn't it?
*** [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation He does seem rather handy with bombs, to boot.]]
*** ... Which he will [[NoHeroDiscount sell]] to '''YOU''' for a low low price of 30 GP.. 15 GP.. how much do you have on you?
