* DifficultButAwesome: In universe, gunblades are considered this. Apparently, it takes much skill and practice to become proficient with one. Squall, Seifer and Laguna are the only ones shown to have shown ability with one, with Laguna noting that he hasn't used one since basic training. When Squall becomes a [=SeeD=], Cid notes that they finally have a gunblade specialist, implying that Squall is the first [=SeeD=] to use one. This difficulty is represented in gameplay by requiring the player to push R1 as Squall strikes for extra damage. You can set it to automatic, but manual gunblade triggering does more damage.

** A much smaller example regarding Rinoa's LimitBreak: During the time Squall and Rinoa are in space, the latter's dog Angelo is on Earth with Zell and the rest of the group; since Rinoa's "Combine" ability involves utilizing her pup for attacks, Combine isn't available until she and Squall return to the surface, which is [[FridgeLogic probably an attempt to make the player find out about and use Rinoa's new Limit Break, "Angel Wing," which uses her newfound Sorceress Powers.]]

** In-game information indicates that sorceresses have the inherent ability to use magic without any outside aids such as Guardian Forces. This trope is {{Zigzagged|Trope}} here as the sorceresses who join the party have to use a junction and stocked magic just like any other party member (except while using limit breaks). [[spoiler:In Edea's case this could be explained by the fact that she's no longer a sorceress by the time she becomes playable In-game, she shows no awareness that there's been a change and still has the use of the ice-element LimitBreak she used on Squall in Disc 1. In Rinoa's case, the only time she could use magic without any aid is through the use of her "Angel Wing" limit break. This gives her unlimited access to any offensive spells she's equipped with at the expense of being within a state of berserk]].

* DidntThinkThisThrough: Squall gets into a space suit and leaves the EscapePod to [[spoiler: escue Rinoa, who's floating out in space]]. Even though he succeeds, they're both stuck out in the middle of space, low on oxygen, and with no way to get back to the Planet. Fortunately, DeusExMachina saves the day.
