* TechPoints: FFX takes the unusual step of basically replacing ExperiencePoints with these, renaming them "Sphere Levels" and providing a "Sphere Grid" for a PointBuildSystem... except for how progression through it is essentially linear (at least, until you unlock special spheres which unlock other characters' paths, allow you to activate a sphere already used by another character, or even let you teleport to a different part of the grid). ''X-2'' went back to standard levels.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Technophobia}}: The religion of Yevon teaches that technology (Machina, as they call it) resulted in the destruction of their once-great civilization and the emergence of the creature known as Sin as their [[AndManGrewProud penance for their pride]], which puts them at odds with the highly-mechanized Al-bhed. [[spoiler:Of course, this is a case of "[[{{Hypocrite}} do as we say, not as we do]]", as the party finds the Yevon headquarters to be quite technologically advanced, which causes major issues for devout Yevonites, like Wakka. Even more so when Measter Seymore just says, "Pretend you don't see them".]]

** Likewise, some of the Dark Aeons (including Penance) stick to the regular battle theme, despite how hard each of them is.

Added DiffLines:

* BasiliskAndCockatrice: Basilisks are huge snakes with arms who can induce Petrification on the party. Running into them is often the player's first experience with the NonStandardGameOver when all active characters are petrified.

* BadassCreed: Tidus is obliged to change the Aurochs' motto, the appalling ''TO DO OUR BEST!'' (especially since their "best" has apparently equated to the entire league's worst for twenty-three years running), to a call for unequivocal victory.

** WordOfGod, though, is that Spira is meant to be an Asian-styled fantasy world (particularly evident in the tropical islands), rather than the typical European-styled world of other Final Fantasies.

** Not many realize it, thanks to its NoExportForYou status, but Valefor first appeared in the early Squaresoft title ''VideoGame/BahamutLagoon''. That makes all the summons except Ixion Mythology Gags from one Square game or another.

* ForcefulKiss: Between [[spoiler:Yuna and Seymour]]. Very {{Squick}}y, indeed... In fact, she clenches her fists while it's happening, and shortly after, she [[{{Kissgusting}} wipes her lips off in disgust]].

* LostForever:
** Many of the items in Bevelle and Home, for example. Watch for those Al Bhed Primers! Notably, one particular weapon in the Via Purifico can be lost forever if you defeat Evrae Altana through methods other than [[ReviveKillsZombie spamming healing items]].
** Though it is subverted regarding the Al Bhed Primers. Al Bhed spheres, which can be found here and there throughout the world, can be used to give you every Primer that was found on other save files. If you have an old save file in which you did find every Primer, or happen to have a relative or friend who did find every Primer, you can still get the ones you missed on your own save file (or alternatively, get them extremely early in the game).
** Thanks to a bug, there's a piece of armor for Tidus with Magic Counter (a weapon ability) purchasable at the Calm Lands the first time you arrive and a random weapon that can drop from Geosgaeno with No Encounters (an armor ability) and can be lost if you don't obtain them the first time.

* AllForNothing: Operation Mi'ihen, a joint operation between the Crusaders and the Al Bhed in an effort to destroy Sin once and for all using an Al Bhed WaveMotionGun. The participating Crusaders end up excommunicated from Yevon as a result, and in the end, all they manage to accomplish is getting themselves slaughtered by Sin.

* {{Backtracking}}: It's purely optional, but you can do this at certain points of the game before acquiring access to the airship. Doing so will let you events in Spira in more depth, develops ordinary NPC characters, (look under TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything for more details) and acquire a few extra items. Backtracking is also a good way to learn a number of things, like finding the statue of Mi'ihen that holds Auron's InfinityPlusOneSword. Once you do get the airship you can do this to do things like open the treasure chests in the Chamber of the Fayth, or encounter bonus bosses like the Dark Aeons.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: If you do the optional backtracking which is available starting after you stay at the Djose Temple following Operation Mi'ihen, you'll see that a fair bit of thought went into expanding the world of Spira a bit. Some of the examples of this include:
