** Characters will die permanently after three rounds of KO status; people have been known to restart a battle just to avoid losing one of their generics.
*** For many, this was just because dead units take their experience with them; losing a party member meant either a) turning to a much weaker party member you haven't played with for a while and is thus less useful, or b) recruiting and training a new member from level 1. It simply wasn't worth it.
*** There was also c) mentioned below, wherein you deliberately train units to be killed and have their skills absorbed by a level 1 character. Also, thanks to the idea that generics can represent several players seated on a couch and shouting instructions at each other while waiting for the controller to be passed around when their turn is up, this would be equivalent to a tabletop RPG session suffering the loss of a player until a new one is rolled. Said multiplayer method allows for each person to [[{{Griefer}} control a generic each and play like an online game]].

* SaveThePrincess: Deconstructed in Chapter II. Ramza and company attempt to rescue Princess Ovelia from Delita, but when they catch up to him, it turns out he was rescuing ''her'' from Larg and the Order of the Northern Sky. Worse, Ramza has just made an enemy of the Northern Sky and is in no way equipped to protect Ovelia, and all of his efforts to do that just get him wrapped up in the political games he was running away from.

Furthermore, rescuing the princess was never about saving her life, but to use her as a political tool that would go on to kickstart the War of the Lions.

* DeusExMachina: Having previously seen every encounter with a Zodiac Stone end in disaster, [[spoiler: the one Rafa was carrying begins to glow while she mourns the death of her brother, and the player braces for a Zodiac Monster battle... except then a bright light comes from above and resurrects Malak]]. Ramza is forced to reevaluate his opinion of Zodiac Stones yet again. This is right after a [[ThatOneBoss Zodiac Monster]] AND a hellish EscortMission.

* BareFistedMonk: Monks fight unarmed and their damage formula involves squaring their strength score (Most classes use weapon attack to determine damage). This means that every extra point of PA is worth exponentially more. As it's possible to get up to +7 PA (a base score of 13 is standard for high level fighters), the Monk can be [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom capable of one]][[StrongFleshWeakSteel -hitting most]] [[MegatonPunch common enemies]] and maybe [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu even a few bosses]]. And that's ''before'' you give them Dual Wield, which lets them ''wield two punches'' (or better yet, just give a Ninja Martial Arts).
