* PunnyName - Plenty: For locations there's Passaj (which was [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] accordingly), and for people there's Amiti, whose mother was Veriti...

to:

* PunnyName - ProactiveBoss: On entering the Phantasmal Bog, the first thing you'll notice is the giant purple-aura'ed salamander glaring at you from the water. The second is when it tries to drown you by crushing the part of the stepping stone you're standing on. The entire point of the dungeon is to get to a different area in the same room where there's enough space to fight it on land.

''Golden Sun: Dark Dawn'' is a 2010 EasternRPG developed by Camelot Software Planning for the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS, a sequel to the ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' duology that was released for the GameBoyAdvance in 2001 and 2003. It was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VK3PiBJvElE announced]] at Nintendo's E3 2009 conference as ''Golden Sun DS'', then promptly disappeared off the radar for a year before [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=th_DDyyxKNg resurfacing]] at next year's E3 as with the ''Dark Dawn'' subtitle and was confirmed for a release near the end of 2010.

* RedHerring: When first arriving in Tonfon, ''everybody'' mentions Piers visiting. Are you finally going to meet one of the other original PCs? Of course not.

* GenreSavvy: When the party [[spoiler: ask Tret about alternate ways to get into Belinsk]], he remarks that "You assume a castle built on ancient ruins MUST have a secret entrance infested with traps and monsters? Well, you're right... THIS time." Considering his age, he's probably picked this up at some point after [[VideoGame/GoldenSun Isaac and friends cleaned him out]].
** [[spoiler: Tret also lets it slip that Amiti is related to Mia somehow]] and follows up with "I hope I haven't just given away any family secrets..."
** [[spoiler: Obaba]] comments on the RagtagBunchOfMisfits [[spoiler: her great-grandson has fallen in with.]]
** The Sand Prince Gem all but name-checks DefeatMeansFriendship in challenging the heroes to [[StrengthEqualsWorthiness prove their worth]] to him/it.
** Amiti's reason for joining your party? Seeing the world so he can become [[TheWisePrince a wiser prince]]. It works.



** [[spoiler: Later, upon meeting Laurel and Tret, Tret specifically indicates that Amiti is somehow related to Mia. Piers is completely unrelated, but Alex is Mia's cousin. [[GenreSavvy Tret]] lampshades the possibility of "dark family secrets" at this point.]]

* ShelteredAristocrat: Pretty much Amiti's defining trait, though he is GenreSavvy enough to realize it, and decides to travel with Matthew and friends in hopes of [[CharacterDevelopment overcoming it]].

Added DiffLines:

* DivergentCharacterEvolution: Djinn of the same element used to have the exact same designs in the GBA titles. Here they are differentiated further to incorporate motifs tied to their Japanese names while four djinn retained their original designs.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Just as in the first two games, Camelot prepares for every possible contingency and every possible action that the player will take, and accounts for it in one way or another.

** Another appliance of Slap is banging a gong to signal a nonexistant attack on a peaceful town, sending everyone around into a panic. And place all the blame on the guard that already did it a couple times for fun. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything Yeah, Slap can be a pretty cruel Psynergy if used creatively]].

* FantasyKeepsake: A GuideDangIt moment where a town with strict border control is only accessible via a dream of when it was still open, allowing you to pick up an otherwise LostForever Djinn.

* GuideDangIt: In addition to some things capable of being LostForever, there's ''no'' way of knowing [[spoiler:to get the very well-hidden Venus Djinni Brick in Harapa before leaving on the cloud (all the more annoying as it is the only thing lost forever at this point, so it gets left out of lists of PointOfNoReturn), how to get the Venus Djinni at Passaj after the Grave Eclipse, or how to navigate the maze at Otka]] without consulting a guide first.

* LostForever: In a major change from the first two games, about a third of the Djinn and six summon tablets can end up as this if you're not careful, due to a great majority of the locations becoming unreachable after the turning point of the plot. Make sure you have explored everything you can before [[spoiler:activating Blados's trap at the end of Konpa Ruins]], [[spoiler: battling Blados and Chalis in the Belinsk ruins]], and [[spoiler:leaving Belinsk after the Grave Eclipse activates]]. Note that two of these come in almost immediate succession. Special mention to the Djinni Brick, who is the only thing missed at [[spoiler:leaving on the cloud climb]]--in fact, there's a sidequest left outstanding at this point that actually ''requires'' you to return to this area after [[spoiler:the Grave Eclipse has already activated]].

* InfantImmortality: Subverted after [[spoiler:the Grave Eclipse]] starts up, one of the (offscreen) victims is the kid in Harapa who tried to use Psynergy, and one NPC in Belinsk can't find her kids... Played straight in Kaocho, where... conversing... with NPCs reveals they managed to get the kids inside the palace before shutting the door.

* [[{{Badass}} Badass Furry]]: Sveta, especially when she transforms into a werewolf in battle.



* CursedWithAwesome: Sveta's a mind-reading Adept who feels AMindIsATerribleThingToRead. She's a beastman who laments being the subject of FantasticRacism, never mind the [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent turning into]] a wolf and [[{{Badass}} punching the shit out of just about everything]]. And she's [[spoiler: the princess of Morgal, and thus involved in the [[ThePlan manipulations of Tuaparang to bring about the Grave Eclipse]], for which she feels responsible.]]
