Added DiffLines:

* EasterEgg: If you complete both Erika's and Ephraim's routes and start a new game; Ross, Amelia, and Ewan have access to their exclusive "super trainee" classes (which are similar to their starting "trainee" class, but with added extra quirks).

* WackyWaysideTribe: Some have claimed this about Eirika's half of the LetsSplitUpGang sequence, as Ephraim [[spoiler:saves General Duessel, sinks the ghost ship, and conquers Grado among other things]] while Eirika [[spoiler:fails to save Jehanna's Sacred Stone and is rescued by Ephraim when they reunite]]. However, this is a rather unfair interpretation as Eirika learned about Carcino's treachery (and did something about it), rescued Prince Innes, and participated in some of the more dramatic moments in the game (which only get a HandWave mention with Ephraim). Besides which, even Ephraim didn't realize Eirika was going to run into ''all'' of that trouble--her original mission was only to make it through monsters and mercenaries to warn Rausten while he was specifically aiming for most of the crises he was involved in.
* WarriorPrince: Several, but especially [[LightningBruiser Ephraim]].
* WeaponTwirling: Several characters do this as part of their critical hit animations. Ephraim in particular looks like a deadly member of a school color guard.
* WeDoTheImpossible: [[spoiler: Subverted when Eirika tries to save Lyon.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler: Lyon.]]

** Jehanna is a more innocuous mix of Egypt, India, Israel, and other Middle-Eastern countries. While their strength is also in arms, it is composed of loosely organized mercenary bands who take up the work simply because there are very few other options.

** Jehanna is a more innocuous mix of Egypt, India, Israel, and other Middle-Eastern countries. This is reflected in their desert geography, Tethys' BellyDancer design, their Myrmidon-exclusive sword is Shamshir-which is modeled a scimitar instead of a katana like Wo Dao. While their strength is also in arms, it is composed of loosely organized mercenary bands who take up the work simply because there are very few other options.

Also, Innes tells her and Gerik to flee at one point when certain death looks likely, and like Gerik, she stands her ground.

* BittersweetEnding: Erika and Ephraim manage to end the war with Grado and prevent the Demon King's return, assuming leadership of Renais afterwards. But their father was killed in the conflict and they had to fight and kill their [[BigBadFriend best friend Lyon]], who was responsible for starting the war and causing the Demon King's revival. [[note]]And it's implied that he's the one that killed their father.[[/note]] Several countries have been devastated by the war, including Renais and Grado; and many people have lost their lives. Then Grado is further devastated by an earthquake shortly after the war.

** '''Dozla''' of all people is one. Being a Berserker, he naturally hits hard and crits very often. Albeit having good HP and HP growth, he has horrible Speed and Speed gains (meaning he gets hit VERY OFTEN, and is more likely to get hit TWICE), and at best average Defense, he gets a good start, but his growth is barely better than his Speed growth, which means if he gets hit, he takes a load more damage compared to say, Ross.

* SpiritualSuccessor: The game takes several mechanics from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden'' (which are present in most [=RPGs=] but not in ''VideoGame/FireEmblem''), such as infinite XP, use of a world map, monsters as enemies, and branched promotions. The two-protagonist setting and their ideals also brings Alm and Celica to mind, and the Arena theme is based from ''Gaiden''[='=]s battle theme.

* LevelGrinding: The primary reason fans dislike this one, as every other game (bar ''Gaiden'') has only Arena Abuse (risky without save states), Boss Abuse (takes forever, also risky and limited by weapon durability), and infinite reinforcements (very rare, generally happens very late or is intended to be very dangerous and also limited by durability) allow for more XP than "normal".
