* {{Nerf}}: Mix is available at any time after obtaining the Alchemist dressphere (as opposed to a LimitBreak in the first game). Because of this, all of the combos that made Mix a GameBreaker in the first game are omitted. Still downplayed a little, like how Final Wall is Hyper Mighty G without Auto-Life, and Miracle Drink here (InvincibilityPowerup) has a different effect from the Miracle Drink in the first (higher critical hit chance).

** The first thing the Creature Creator has you do as part of the tutorial is catch Brother in a trap meant for fiends, after which you're allowed the pleasure of disintegrating him into pyreflies if you're not fond of him. The game will inflict cruelty back on the ''player'' in turn, though, by reviving him if you ever have no other fiends captured.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfSidequests: The game has an astounding number of sidequests, most of which can easily be missed. Most of them are required to get 100% completion and the GoldenEnding, but the game can be completed with around 50% completion, meaning that about half the game's content consists of sidequests.

The International release takes it UpToEleven with the Creature Creator, which is approximately as large as the main story in its own right, making it closer to ''two-thirds'' of the game's content that's sidequests.

* AnimeThemeSong: "real Emotion"

to:

* AnimeThemeSong: "real Emotion""Real Emotion" is a peppy J-pop song, in stark contrast to the ballad "1000 Words", which is more typical of the ''Final Fantasy'' series.

* AscendedExtra: Rikku's brother (and Yuna's cousin) Brother. He made only a couple of appearances in the previous game, but is a main character here.

* BagOfSpilling: Yuna and Rikku both do not retain their abilities or attributes from the previous game. Justified in that they're explicitly using a new sphere grid, focused on Dresspheres instead of the old one. Maybe they just like the challenge?

** Also, regardless of whether you found them all in [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX the previous game]] or not, you have to find all the Al-Bhed Primers all over again. Regardless of the fact that Rikku, an Al-Bhed, is in your party at all times. And that Paine ALSO speaks Al-Bhed as is revealed later in the game, and that Shinra, Buddy, and Brother are all Al Bhed. Still gotta dig though the desert to find 'em.
*** This is justified, though, because it was never Rikku or Yuna who was learning Al Bhed in the first game anyway- it was Tidus. Rikku does function as an interpreter on several occasions throughout both games, but Yuna still wants to learn the language herself.

* CerebusSyndrome / MoodWhiplash: The game tricks you in the beginning with stuff like colorful outfits, a peppy J-Pop concert and the girls posing like ''Series/CharliesAngels''. The more you play, however, the more you come to see a lot of darker stuff bubbling up, such as [[spoiler:having to fight the dark aeons, a conspiracy involving the world's three leaders, and the spirit of a man who's been tortured with the memory of the death of himself and his lover for a thousand years.]] While there continues to be fun / funny stuff throughout, starting at the end of Chapter 2 things really start to take a shift.

Added DiffLines:

* VocalDissonance: Quite a few people were shocked when they heard Lenne's English voice, claiming it was too deep and raspy, especially for someone who looked to have been no older than her late 20's. This makes the cutscene in which Lenne placates Shuyin a little awkward.

Added DiffLines:

* MightyGlacier: The Dark Knight Dressphere inflicts some of the highest damage of any Dressphere in the game. In return, however, the user gets irritatingly long ATB bars, giving them a slower turn rate.

Added DiffLines:

* CursedWithAwesome: Slow status can be ''good'' for Songstresses, as the slowed-down ATB meter means that dance effects will last longer. There's even an accessory, Shmooth Sailing, that grants Ribbon status on top of Slow, ensuring that the only way to shut down a Songstress is through damage or certain brutal {{Bonus Boss}}es' status attacks.

* BittersweetEnding: The audio drama ''Final Fantasy X ~Will~'' released with the Final Fantasy X HD Remastered version has one of these. [[spoiler: After an unspecified amount of time from the X-2 ending, it seems Tidus and Yuna are separated by the former's devotion to his life as a blitzball player in Luca and the latter's want for a peaceful life on Besaid. Not only that, Tidus' reappearance is a signal that the thoughts of Spira's people, if strong enough, are capable of also bringing back Sin, and Tidus sets off to protect Yuna when she declares that she will be the one to defeat Sin once again]].
