* {{Tsundere}}: The Witch of the Fens. It's hard not to get the impression that she [[{{Shotacon}} likes Luso]]. For one thing, while she usually charges exorbitant prices for her services, it's on the house whenever Luso needs something.

* EverythingFades: unlike the previous games, corpses immediately disappear from the battle field. Downed characters can be revived anywhere on the field. Chests also fade away when opened.

* OhCrap: During the "Mountain Watch" mission, Lusso encounters an assassin, named Ewen, who wants to buy his judge. Naturally, Lusso refuses, leading to a fight against Ewen, who promptly neutralizes your judge. Cue a change of music and this trope from both Lusso and the player, as you lose your clan privilege and can't revive your fallen members under these circumstances. Your best option is to bring Ewen down quickly, as his team is quite powerful.

** Viera (High Men): A OneGenderRace. Called "people of the wood" due to their spiritual link with spirits from the wood and have sensitive BunnyEars, but lack expressive emotions. A mixture of GlassCannon and FragileSpeedster. also possibly the most overpowered race in the game, thanks to a long, complex chain of equipment

** Many EscortMissions depend entirely on how stupid the [=NPCs=] you're supposed to be protecting are.

* LostForever: Notably averted, although you can miss out on a very useful ability for Hurdy early on with the only alternative being repeating a quest that only comes once a year 4 times.
** It ''is ''possible for unique weapons to be destroyed by enemies, including the ones you need for Hurdy to learn all Bard abilities and for Adelle to master Heritor abilities, halting progression of the Heritor sidequest.

* OldSaveBonus: If you have a copy of the original ''Tactics Advance'' in the DS' GBA slot when you start a new game, you are given the "Libra" ability, which reveals the stage's traps. GenreSavvy gamers don't need to be told this, as DS sequels to GBA games tend to have extra features unlocked in this way. Oddly, while DS games are region-free, this bonus doesn't work if the two games are from different regions, such as a US ''FFTA'' and a European ''A2''.

Missions have been largely revamped, offering a wide range of new win conditions (such as finding a specific item or weakening a specific unit). It re-introduces Trap Tiles from ''FinalFantasyTactics'', introduces new [[LimitBreak Opportunity Attacks]], a new Loot system for gaining new equipment and a revamped experience curve, an Auction mini-game in which clans compete for territory, and allows for ''every'' mission to be manually playable (though you can still use Dispatches to automate the process if you like).

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: This game is probably the most notable for being the least frustrating in the series, even with its flaws. [[FinalFantasyTactics the first one]] was a confusing maze of astral relations and dragged out and complex mechanics, but knowledge of those mechanics let you smash the game into itty bitty pieces. [[FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance the next game]] was far less complex but with the law system in place for the entire game it quickly became frustrating due to breaking the laws removing a character from the battle. This game's law system only removes a few bonuses if you break a law, and isn't that hard to understand, however it also is the most well balanced, having the fewest ways to outright break the game, but still many ways to build up characters powerfully.

** The Assassin class. In ''FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'' it was the hardest job to acquire for the Viera race but (fittingly) their best job, turning the character into a LightningBruiser. In ''A2'' their power has been greatly decreased but the pre-requisites are still just as demanding.
