** There's also a reference to the first ''VideoGame/{{SaGa}}'' game. [[spoiler:Vanille's "Death" ability is a one-hit KO on Orphan's final form, much like the instant-kill SAW weapon.]]

* MorphWeapon: When Sazh gets his fourth ATB level, make him a commando and have him attack. On the fourth hit, his handguns leap into the air, transform, then merge into a rifle before he takes a shot -- for no reason, apparently, but [[RuleOfCool style]]. Also, Lightning's gunblades transform between sword and firearm.

* MyGodYouAreSerious: At the Vile Peaks, Lightning says that rather than spin out time trying to find her Focus or become a Cie'th, she's going to ''really'' [[ThenLetMeBeEvil make herself the enemy Cocoon fears]] by attacking Eden, the fal'Cie that rules over all the others and essentially keeps Cocoon running. Sazh starts to banter as usual, but then he realizes she ''actually means it'' and start pointing out the many reasons that would be a really bad idea.

* RandomlyDrops: Thanks to the game's aversion of MoneySpider, the only ways to accumulate large amounts of Gil involve fighting enemies that drop valuable components designed to be sold, but which often drop at rates of 25% or worse. You will need millions of Gil to upgrade weapons, and millions more if you want to go for the trophy for having all of the equipment. Enjoy doing the same 5-10 minute fight three or four times without getting anything.

You will need The other, lategame method, is repeatedly re-doing the Cie'th Stone missions for the guaranteed secondary rewards, which can be sold (particularly the 60,000 Gold Nugget for the Adamantoise mission, which can be Death-tricked). Even with a guide on the upgrade mechanics, it'll take millions of Gil to buy all the catalysts needed to upgrade weapons, and millions more your weapons/accessories to max, particularly if you want to go for the trophy for having all of the equipment.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: It's odd seeing Hope contemplate killing Snow during a cutscene in Palumpolum and then heal him in the very next battle. Addressed when Hope defends Snow from a monster in a cutscene -- he doesn't want Snow to die because then Hope doesn't get his chance to confront him with what he's done.

Added DiffLines:

** It is a plot point that the party have a very vague Focus, and this is implied to be standard practice. When they reach Pulse, however, they get the opportunity to complete the missions of people who failed their Focuses. These are all very clear, because it would be annoying for the player to have a half-remembered dream as a side quest instruction.

** At the beginning of the game check the menu for the characters stats. With the exception of HP, Vanille's magic (which you can't even ''use'' at this point) and strength are almost half-again any of the other characters. This spindly little girl is stronger than both Snow, [[GoodOldFisticuffs a man who kills monsters by punching them in the face]], and Lightning, [[TheHero a career soldier]]. [[spoiler:She's already been buffed]]

** And then there's the awesome three-way fight you can perform on the Archlytte Step with [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast a Behemoth King and a Megistotheran]]. Both of them are extremely powerful, and even Hope comments that it's awesome to watch them duke it out, on top of this being a very good grinding spot.

* [[MortonsFork Morton's Fork]]: If you're branded a l'Cie, you've got two possible fates in store for you: complete your focus and turn into a crystal forever, or do nothing and turn into a Cie'th zombie forever. This is your first hint that the fal'Cie [[JerkAssGods are nothing but a bunch of pricks]]. Your second hint is that focuses are only ever about as clear as half-remembered dreams anyway.

* ThePurge: After discovering a Fal'Cie from Pulse in some ruins, the Sanctum government decides to send everyone that was "near" that Fal'Cie to Pulse because of the irrational fear of everything coming from that planet. Several facilities were constructed for the purged population to live happily there, and a military division known as PSICOM took over and oversaw the removal of the population. However, it quickly becomes apparent that the Sanctum government neither expected nor intended for any of the Purged population to survive - when the population being shipped out began to violently resist, PSICOM used that as an excuse to simply massacre everyone.
