** The Black Mages get the classical RobeAndWizardHat, the Time Mages a pointy pope-esque hat, the Oracles' hat make them look like learned men of the far east (fitting since their job class involves eastern mysticism), and the Summoners' headbands are positively [[FreudWasRight Freudian]].

** In Gariland Magic City, the very first battle of the game where you're fielding your own squad, your AI buddy Delita warns against reckless charges, then [[HypocriticalHumor promptly ignores his own advice]]. (Guests tend to have this sort of behavior. In particular, Rafa on the Riovanne Rooftop castle where [[EscortingLeeroy you're supposed to protect her]]. Stories abound of people having their Rafa charge in and promptly get killed before the player even gets a single turn in.)

* MoraleMechanic: The game did include "Bravery" as a morale mechanic in combat; if dropped to single digits, the unit would literally turn into a chicken and avoid battle; a player character whose out-of-battle Bravery was dropped too low would leave the party forever (except [[TheHero Ramza]]).

* PortentOfDoom: According to the Chemist Zalbag brings to Balbanes' grave, mosfungus mushrooms growing out of graves are "major bad luck", as it supposedly signals the end of the family line. More seriously, it's fairly damning evidence that [[spoiler: Balbanes]] was poisoned with mosfungus, and the most likely suspect is [[spoiler: Dycedarg.]]

* LostForever:
** Characters who stay dead too long turn into crystals. Also, if your allies Brave levels are too low or Faith is too high, they'll leave the party.
** If Mustadio isn't in your party in the last chapter, say goodbye to all of those {{optional party member}}s
*** Even with Mustadio around, [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud]] can be missed if you accidentally pick the wrong conversation option with Aeris (say, if you're hammering through the dialogue in a hurry), and he takes Worker 8 with him.
** That awesome custom equipment the enemy is carrying? If you can't steal them from them (or invite them to your own party) before the battle ends, kiss them goodbye.

* TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified: Wiegraf Folles, the leader of the Death Corps (Corpse Brigade), is fighting against the aristocracy and nobility for corruption and abuses against the commoners such as denying pay to many peasant soldiers after the Fifty Years War. When word gets out that Marquis Elmdore of Limberry had been kidnapped by his Lieutenant, Gustav Margriff, Wiegraf finds and executes him and releases the Marquis to the arriving rescue party, explicitly stating that the Corpse Brigade are not bandits but revolutionaries who are fighting for the common people of Ivalice against the oppression of the Monarchies.

* {{Foil}}: Ramza and Delita. At the beginning of the game, the two characters are practically identical, being Squires with near identical skillsets who care for their younger sisters, Alma and Teta. But when [[spoiler:Teta is killed by Argath,]] their paths separate. Ramza, an acknowledged bastard, sticks to his ethics and ideals but suffers horrendously for it, becoming a mercenary and later a heretic in the eyes of the public because he refused to budge on what was right, ultimately dying forgotten. Delita, the lowborn commoner, compromises his ideals and burns friend and foe alike in his quest for power, becoming the new King of Ivalice and saving the land from civil war, but ultimately feels empty in the end despite his accomplishments.
