* TeleportationRescue: Alex uses his short-range TeleportSpam to rescue Saturos after his first boss fight goes wrong, preventing the heroes from finishing him off (whether they actually would kill him off is discussed by the villains, who escape just after).

* RandomDropBooster: Killing monsters with the elemental Djinn they're weakest to gives more experience, money, better stat boosts if levelling up, and increases the item drop chance.

Fixing broken links
* TheCameo: ''The Lost Age'' has a sprite sheet for [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]] [[http://kprs.laronmi.net/taow/miscellany/link/link.htm in game but unused]]. Also, the fairy Mia summons early in the previous game is Primula from ''ShiningForceIII''. Additionally, in the Japanese version, the BonusBoss of the first game, Deadbeard, is called Talos, which is the name of a recurring boss from the Shining series (which would explain why he looks less like a pirate and more like a giant suit of armor).

* DummiedOut: [[http://goldensunwiki.net/List_of_unacquirable_Psynergy Various Psynergy]] that have no effect outside of the debug room can be obtained via cheating. After beating the FinalBoss in the second game, there is a brief sequence where you walk around the final town, Prox; normally, you don't have access to the Mind Read Psynergy at this point (as the two party members with it aren't in the party at this point), but if you hack to obtain it, there are major {{Sequel Hook}}s in the Mind Read "conversations" seen [[http://kprs.laronmi.net/taow/miscellany/mindread/mindread.htm here]] (obviously spoilers are contained within).

The game's battle system revolves around the presence of [[OurGeniesAreDifferent Djinn]], elemental manifestations of nature released from the Sol Sanctum, where the Golden Sun lies. They, like the adepts who wield them, make up the different elements; Mercury for [[MakingASplash water]] and [[AnIcePerson Ice]], Venus for the [[DishingOutDirt earth]] and [[GreenThumb plants]], Mars for [[PlayingWithFire Fire]], and Jupiter, for [[BlowYouAway Wind]] and [[ShockAndAwe lightning.]] There are a number of Djinn scattered throughout the gameworld (28 in the first game alone), and you GottaCatchEmAll. Once you have them, you [[PowersAsPrograms equip them to your characters]], which alters their CharacterClass depending on how many Djinn of which element you gave them. Of course, in battle you can also ''deploy'' your Djinn for burst damage, {{Status Buff}}s, etc, and if you had enough unattached Djinn floating around, you could then use SummonMagic for extra beat-down. ...Of course, deploying Djinn removed them from your character, reducing their stats and even changing their class mid-battle, so there was a trade-off involved.

* GenreSavvy: Played with a bit by [[spoiler: Briggs]], surprisingly, though a bit late. [[spoiler:He catches on during your battle with him that you possess strange powers, and doesn't allow his infant son [[PlayingWithFire Eoleo]] to use his in the same room with you in the off-chance that you're able to see him using it.]]
