** Rapha also runs right at Elmdore and his assassins at the end of Chapter 3. Again, for what reason? [[spoiler:Elmdore just murdered the man who murdered her brother (and spent the past ten years ritualistically raping her). Robbed of her chance at revenge, she instead decides to commit SuicideByCop]].

** The ''entire'' plot is, essentially, [[spoiler: the Pharisee theory regarding {{Jesus}}]] lying at the center of the DarkSecret guarded by the CorruptChurch.

* TheNoseless: A facet of Akihiko Yoshida's Ivalice characters is that they lack visible noses. This carries over into the CG sequences in ''The War of the Lions'' which were done in Yoshida's style. Also of note, the character portraits in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' (also done by Yoshida) also lack noses.

** On the non-caster side, Lancers get pretty nice helmets, Male Ninjas have a funky tortoise-shell hat/face-cover thing, Male Squires look like they're wearing a yarmulke, Mediator hats look like a pillow (complete with tassles), and Male Samurais have helmets evocative of Sherlock Holmes' deerstalker.

* NintendoHard: A borderline case, but ''Tactics'' is '''very''' unforgiving to players who don't think their JP spendings through. Anyone who buys their abilities unwisely is going to suffer some ''nasty'' combinations of AwesomeButImpractical and/or UselessUsefulSpell.



* NonStandardSkillLearning: Ramza's skillset gets larger over the course of the game. There's also the Ultima spell (learnable only by Ramza and Alma, and only during two storyline fights) and the Zodiac summon (learnable only by summoners, during one optional fight), which are taught by being hit with (and surviving) the skill in combat, as opposed to most skill which are purchased with JP.

* TranshumanTreachery: The Lucavi appear to merge with their hosts into an unholy [[WorldOfWarCraft Lich King-like]] amalgamation of man and demon. While the original personality of the host remains intact, they immediately cast off their humanity.

Added DiffLines:

** One presumably instance was in the character Wiegraf. Considering his original sprite is almost exactly the same as a party member you recruit later named Beowulf, Wiegraf's name was presumably supposed to be Wiglaf, which is the name of a major character in ''Literature/Beowulf''. However, he became so [[ThatOneBoss infamous in his own right]], that if it was an error, they kept it for the War of the Lions translation.

** The treasures and lands you unlock in the bar are mostly callbacks to previous Franchise/FinalFantasy titles. There's also a ShoutOut to ''BreathOfFire'' with the Zenny Sword, described as 'a sword made of foreign coins'.

* CultureChopSuey: [[BareFistedMonk Monks]], [[{{Ninja}} ninjas]], Oracles ([[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onmy%C5%8Dd%C5%8D which are based off of Onmyoji]]) and [[{{Samurai}} samurai]] in a purely medieval European setting with no [[WuTai Asian-themed town]] anywhere, though there are mentions of the existence of eastern nations. Of course, this is par for the course in ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''.
