* 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.

** Most gear. Steel Helm, Battle Axe, Cupid Locket and Bombs all must be purchased. Still... the game is practically to the point that Gold is a joke, as it throws restoratives at you like they're going out of style. And they respawn too, no less.

* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Subverted ''twice''. Not only does the Old Man admit Benjamin isn't actually as destined as he'd said, [[spoiler:it's implied in the ending that he already knew the prophecy was a fake but decided to use it anyway]].

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

''Final Fantasy Mystic Quest'' (a.k.a. ''Final Fantasy USA: Mystic Quest'' in Japan and ''Mystic Quest Legend'' in Europe) is an early spinoff of the [[RunningGag Shin-Shatteringly Popular]] ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' franchise, released for the Super NES/Super Famicom in 1992. It's widely considered to be either SoOkayItsAverage or SoBadItsGood -- although it does have a small, vocal fanbase.

* DummiedOut: Hard to say, but if you leave Phoebe on "Auto", she gains access to Aero despite not having its book, possibly implying that she was supposed to have it normally. More traditionally, there's a group of status resistances which were dummied from the game's equipment.



* PoisonedWeapons: Tristam's shuriken and the claw weapons.

* 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.

* [[UselessUsefulSpell Useless Useful Armor]]: Tristam's armor, the Doom Robe has no status resistances except one- [[OneHitKill Doom]]. It's the only armor in the game which resists Doom. The first enemy in the game to use a Doom attack appears immediately ''after'' Tristam leaves your party for the last time (leading to speculation that he was intended to be around longer). The next partner may temporarily steal this resistance due to a bug, though.

* 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.)
