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?

** Double-subverted: [[spoiler: the Old Man/Light Crystal implies that he knew it was a fake prophecy, but manipulated events so that it would come true anyway.]]



* BottomlessMagazines: Averted with Ben's bombs, Tristam's shuriken and Phoebe's arrows. However, ammunition chests are frequent inside of dungeons and respawn when you leave the area, so unless you are really wasteful, the amount is rarely a problem.

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: It's a turn-based game, so your actions are determined at the beginning of each round. Get hit for over half your life? Tough, deal with it next round. The monsters? No such restriction -- unless [[AIRoulette the computer is that stupid]], an enemy that was at full health at the beginning of the round, after you bring it down [[ShowsDamage to its wounded form]], will just cast Cure to fully heal itself. Fighting mage-type enemies, especially when they outnumber you 3-to-1 in this game, [[GoddamnBats is REALLY annoying]].
** You can get this to work for you, if you set your ally to Auto... but that [[AIRoulette had problems too]].

* LeotardOfPower: Phoebe's outfit is a leotard with some armor pieces and a cape--though given her origins, it could well be a bathing suit.



* RapunzelHair: In keeping with her princessly character design, Kaeli's hair goes all the way down her back.



* 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.

* TechnicolorNinjas: Tristam is dressed in ''white'' ninja clothing.



* [[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.
** This does lead to [[EpilepticTrees suspicions]] that Tristam was meant to be around longer during development, as he really is the least-utilized party member in the game.
*** Although due to GoodBadBugs, your next partner may temporarily steal this resistance.

* LetsPlay: Done by well-known [=LP=]ers such as LetsPlay/HCBailly and LetsPlay/NintendoCapriSun while LetsPlay/GunarmDyne has done both the original game and two substantially different versions of a fan remake.

That said, [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic the game's music is among the greatest 16-bit soundtracks]]. Composer Ryuji Sasai also wrote the soundtrack for a much lesser known SquareSoft game, ''VideoGame/TreasureOfTheRudra'', as well as ''[[VideoGame/SaGa3 SaGa 3 / Final Fantasy Legend III]]''.
