** Also applies to [[spoiler:Biran Ronso after Kimahri defeats him and Yenke. Biran calls out to Mount Gagazet, acknowledging Kimahri's strength, and lets the party know that the Ronso tribe will stop any pursuers from Bevelle. [[HeroicSacrifice It doesn't end well.]]]]

** There's also a fair bit of CrapsaccharineWorld undertones: Zanarkand is noted in-story as a ShiningCity with glorious technology and blitzball games all the time, but it was also at war with Bevelle and sent a whole lot of summoners to the front lines to try and defend against it. Meanwhile, being in the FinalFantasy series, Spira is also full of [[SceneryPorn beautiful landscapes]] and [[ImpossiblyCoolOutfit character outfits that are the death-knell of cosplayers,]] as well as [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome one of the series' most renowned soundtracks.]]

** It wouldn't be a Franchise/FinalFantasy game without a BonusBoss that is more powerful than the final boss, but the International/PAL versions of FFX take this to ludicrous levels. For example, the two final bosses in FFX, Sin and [[spoiler: Jecht]] have around 150,000HP. The WEAKEST of the Dark Aeon superbosses has almost EIGHT times that much HP, and the two strongest (Nemesis and Penance) have over 8 million HP each. To put it in perspective, for your characters to be strong enough to even stand a chance against them, they'll be capable of taking out the final boss in just one or two physical attacks.

* NonStandardSkillLearning: The Overdrives have this feel, due to the [[CastOfSnowflakes diverse nature of the party]]. Tidus learns new Overdrives by using previous ones repeatedly. Lulu's Overdrive depends on the black magic that she knows, while Yuna's Overdrive depends on the Aeons she can summon, and Rikku depends on the party's inventory to mix items. Auron learns Overdrives by collecting movie spheres (certain numbers of which unlock these abilities). Kimahri learns Overdrives from enemies, and you play Blitzball to win new Overdrives for Wakka. One of the most {{Egregious}} example of GuideDangIt would be Valefor's Energy Blast attack. How do you obtain it? ''By talking to a friggin' dog in the very first village.''

The plot opens in the futuristic city of Zanarkand, where an egotistical sports star named Tidus is preparing for a game of blitzball, a bombastic combination of rugby and water polo. No sooner has the game begun than a mysterious {{Ronin}} appears, and along with him, a [[GiantWallOfWateryDoom giant sphere of watery doom]] that engulfs the city and reduces it to neon kindling.

** The PS4 version of the HD release strangely didn't have one. Square Enix had to patch one in.

** During the escape from [[spoiler: Home]] the announcer's repeated warnings sound like "I'm annoying huh" repeated ad nauseum. That or, "let the noise stop" chanted [[LogicBomb loudly and repeatedly]].

Added DiffLines:

* SuppressedHistory: there is massive suppression of Spira's history by Yevon's priests. Summoners typically don't know much about the Final Summon (to the point where they are surprised when Yunalesca asks them to "choose a hero"), the war between the Al Bhed and Yevon, they don't really know why ''machina'' is forbidden (beyond false teachings that it is somehow responsible for Sin), and they certainly don't know that [[spoiler: the Final Summon itself is what continues the cycle of Sin]]. Instead, the people of Yevon are fed propaganda, and the Al Bhed have a noticeable gap where there's many things they only half-understand, including their own technology.

* OrphansOrdeal: ''Everyone'' is said to have experienced this or alluded to. The only ones who don't have any such thing stated in their past, are Auron and Kimahri. This is mostly thanks to [[EldritchAbomnination Sin]]; lots of children end up orphans due to surviving the deaths of their parents when Sin attacks. Even Tidus' ordeal turns out ultimately to do with Sin [[spoiler: as coming into contact with Sin brought Jecht over to Spira, who then went on to ''become'' Spira, and Tidus' mom decided to stop living without Jecht sometime after that.]]
