* OldSaveBonus: If the player has save data for ''Final Fantasy XIII'' on their HD, the success rate of the slots minigame in Xanadu/Serendipity will be higher, [[RandomNumberGod mostly]]. They also unlock several in game items, a theme for your Playstation Dashboard (for [=PS3=]) and a gamer picture (for XBox 360).

** Beware the latest [=PS3=] and [=XBOX360=] trailers, which are spoiling things way too much. For example, [[spoiler:the XBOX360 trailer reveals scenes which lead us to think that Noel and Yeul are going to die. The [[http://youtu.be/7ikNX-p8hEI?t=2m25s XBOX360 trailer]] goes as far as showing Caius stabbing Noel in the back, leaving him to die.]] Of course, we know that we should NeverTrustATrailer, or that with the multiple endings the game will have, we only see one of the paths our choices may lead us... Still, it's going a little too far.

* TheFutureWillBeBetter: In Serah's time of 5AF, humanity lives in tiny communities that eeke out a living while fighting off monsters. In every timeline after that, humans are doing better. 400AF is nightmarish but once the timeline is changed, a grand soceity has been developed where the greatest problem is slight boredom. Noel comes from a BadFuture but he went back in time to invoke this trope.

** The soundtrack. Examples: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBZvtVpynXA LIMIT BREAK]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGZzR5Zmlpo Colliding Worlds]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZc-pzCKgjE Groovy Chocobo]]. The first two are a few of several tracks vocalized for the game, somewhat like ''{{Persona 3}}''.

** Gogmagog, an unusual being that pops up in random portals and forces you to fight him in a boss battle several times in the early game. After a long string of {{Wham Episode}}s and a very depressing TearJerker, Gogmagog shows up as the boss in the time period late in the game... only for him to rarely attack (and when he does, it's fairly weak to any sufficiently-leveled party), along with use "Writhe", which is like [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} "Splash"]] but ''worse'': it inflicts a random debuff on himself. [[note]] If you take too long, Gogmagog will transfer ''every'' status ailment he stacked ''to you'', including Pain + Fog at the same time, among others. He just doesn't last enough for most players to experience this. [[/note]]

** [[spoiler:Serah and Noel in the Paradox Ending at Archlyte Archylte Steppe.]]



* GenreShift: ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' had LighterAndSofter music with vibrant strings layered onto a common style most often associated with past Final Fantasy titles, [[SoundtrackDissonance which contrasts]] the "[[EarnYourHappyEnding brighter future]]" theme akin to ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX''. This game is the exact opposite: DarkerAndEdgier soundtrack with strong emphasis on individual instruments optionally layered with a subtle rap-like voice-over, which contrasts the apparent theme of [[ThePowerOfFriendship how relying on others is extremely helpful]].

* GenreShift: ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' GenreShift:
** In gameplay terms it's still an action RPG, but XIII-2's story is basically a 180 on the themes of the original - XIII leaned heavily into its sci-fi elements, while XIII-2 is more of a cosmic fantasy. In addition, the mythology has been completely turned on its head - the Fal'Cie were portrayed as the closest thing Cocoon had to gods and the story went to great lengths to show that they couldn't care less about humans, while XIII-2 almost completely drops them and instead gives us Etro, a BigGood who effectively gives her life to protect the protagonists of the first game.

** For monster materials, Archlyte Steppe -Year Unknown- just throws them at you. Especially in storm weather.

** Mostly averted. After obtaining the proper seal, you can lock a time gate and go back to the area as it was when you first arrived. Because of this, few things are truly lost, even the Live Trigger rewards, but at the moment some of the gate seals don't work properly and thus don't return you to the very beginning of that location, Archelyte Steppe being a major offender.

** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Terra Branford]] is briefly mentioned in one of Captain Cryptic's quiz questions. Given who [[Creator/DaveWittenberg the Captain]] [[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy is voiced by]], it is also extremely ironic as well as extremely hilarious.

** Unique monster crystals that can only be gotten by throwing Mog at specific spots used to be this in the sense that if you picked the wrong Crystarium upgrades for them or infused another monster with them (which was the only way to pass on the useful Pack Mentality skill), you couldn't get another one, but thanks to Snow's {{DLC}}, all versions of Valfodr have 2 of the unique monsters as their drop items and thus you can get as many extras as you want.
