* AbsurdlyHighLevelCap: Leveling up is so infrequent in this game that Level 99 is pretty much an impossibly far number... unless you mod the game to get tons of free EXP.

* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Initially played straight with Lenna being the only female in the party with the male Bartz, Galuf and Faris, [[spoiler:Then subverted when Faris is revealed to be female, making it a GenderEqualEnsemble]], and then ultimately [[spoiler:[[InvertedTrope inverted]] when Galuf dies and is replaced by his granddaughter Krile]].

* NPCRoadblock: One of the more patently ridiculous examples to this date: after defeating the boss in the Water Crystal chamber and [[YouCantThwartStageOne watching the crystal shatter]], the beaten-up soldier there manages to get back up... only to collapse ''right in the doorway'', calling out his last words to [[spoiler:Galuf]] before dying. Now, corpses serving as roadblocks in a DoomedHometown and the like are commonplace, but this is an insignificant character was made for the sole purpose was to ''moving into that spot '''and then''' expiring there just so you couldn't leave''.

* InvoluntaryGroupSplit: Subverted in the Ronka Ruins. Galuf is separated during the fall into the dungeon, so the others decide he'll catch up later and start to go off on their merry way--which Galuf overhears. He quickly finds a way into the room.

Added DiffLines:

** Played straight when Bartz and Krile must leave Faris and Reina behind in Tycoon Castle during the celebration. Faris' departure doesn't last long, but Reina's does.

* FourElementEnsemble: Each character represents one of the elements and its corresponding essence. Lenna is Water/Devotion, Faris is Fire/Courage, Galuf is Earth/Hope, and Bartz is Wind/Passion.
* FromBadToWorse: The game's plot. The heroes always get everywhere just in time to see the villains screw everything up before their eyes, meaning both that the world is screwed as the elements die ''and'' the BigBad is freed from his prison. One of your party [[spoiler:[[HeroicSacrifice dies fighting him]]]], and said villain [[spoiler:gains the power to suck up existence into a big vacuum of nothing]]. However, none of these failures [[{{Determinator}} ever discourage the heroes]]. Amusingly, the basic "heroes lose every time" structure of the plot very closely resembles ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV''.
