** What true power really is -- is it military might, physical strength, emotional strength, or the value of your lineage? And what are the moral ways to use those types of power?



* RealityEnsues: After defeating the final boss, the party all take a breather to gaze at the sky, contemplate their victory and (in Balthier and Fran's case) do a fistpound. Then... a destroyed fighter crashes through the air to remind everyone that the two fleets don't magically know they ought to stop shooting each other, cue frantic scramble to announce a cease-fire.

** A major theme throughout the first half of the game is that Ashe is the Princess of Dalmasca... and that means next to squat, since her family is dead, she has no real political or military power, and no way to prove her royal heritage beyond people who physically recognize her. Ghis even notes to her that Arcadia has no need of her; any maiden baring a passing resemblance to Ashe could be sold to the public as the real thing if they felt the need to use Ashe's influence.

* ImprobableAimingSkills: [[{{Mook}} The Imperial Trooper]] who kills Rassler does so by shooting him with an arrow. Through the one unarmored spot on his body. While Rassler is mounted. In the middle of a pitched battle. Across the span of a bridge. ''At night''. If it wasn't for the fast Basch kills him, the man would probably be deserving of a promotion.

* ShaggyDogStory: From a certain point of view. As early as the Tomb of Raithwall the Empire actually offers to let Ashe take the throne publically and rule over Dalmasca again, but she refuses because she wants to keep fighting the Empire. Ultimately her attempts to attain power or weaken Archadia's don't amount to anything, and while it's her CharacterDevelopment that convinces her to change her mind, up until then the party really doesn't do a thing to affect the grander scheme of things except making the world powers more suspicious and paranoid than they already were. Which of course almost begins a world war that the party has to act to stop in the climax.

* [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Getting "Nightsoil" Past the Radar]]: Also, the textures for the wolf enemies. They were... very, very realistically detailed. To the point that you could tell that the wolves were, in fact, females. And that the larger one used as a bounty was in heat.
