* NewNeoCity: New Parm. Catchy name, but that's the only thing it has in common with its steampunk brethren.

* ShooOutTheClowns: It's only after [[spoiler: Sue and Gadwin leave your party]] that the story turns from a light-hearted romp around the world into a more serious "Save the World from the EldritchAbomination !" deal.

* TheUnChosenOne: [[spoiler:Justin starts out as an ordinary boy who just wants to be an adventurer. Though he JumpedAtTheCall, and gains the powers of the "Spirits", he wasn't chosen; instead, he fought hard in order to be ''accepted''.]]

* NightmareFuel: Abandoned Laine Village. We get a taste of what [[spoiler:Gaia]] can do with the Petrified Forest and the Tower of Doom, but once the party walks into the Abandoned Laine Village, they learn what [[spoiler:Gaia is really capable of. The entire place no longer resembles a something that should even exist. The space of the area itself has become warped, with doors leading to different locations in the area entirely through what are essentially portals. The petrified bodies of those who weren't able to escape before Gaia arrived are encased in floating, spinning crystals that are eternally suspended above a dark void.]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QyXK3skMWj4 Not to mention the incredibly creepy music...]]

* NonLinearSequel: Of course, there's ''GrandiaII'', ''GrandiaIII'', and ''[[GrandiaXtreme Grandia]] [[XtremeKoolLetterz Xtreme]]'', but there's also ''[[GaidenGame Grandia: Parallel Trippers]]''--a game for the GameBoyColor which stars a trio of kids who get pulled into the Grandia world and team up with Justin and his friends ([[GoKartingWithBowser and his enemies!]]) to SaveBothWorlds. [[NoExportForYou It never made it out of Japan]].

After making the first two ''{{Lunar}}'' games, Game Arts developed ''Franchise/{{Grandia}}''. It was originally released for the SegaSaturn in Japan in 1997, but the Saturn version was never released in the west due to the system's poor sales. The game was ported to the PlayStation two years later, and this version localized and released by SCEA in the US and by Creator/{{Ubisoft}} in Europe. It remains the best-selling entry in the series.

* GuestStarPartyMember: Technically, everyone but Justin is GuestStarPartyMember. A lot of the characters, like Gadwin, Guido, Milda, and even [[spoiler:Sue]] have lives outside of Justin's quest that they need to go back to, and they will leave the party when their part in the story is over. It's not really a case of SoLongAndThanksForAllTheGear, though, as everyone [[spoiler:but Sue]] comes back to help Justin storm the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon.

* MeaningfulName: [[spoiler:The Icarians. Icarian can be seen as an adjective referring to things relating to Icarus, a popular figure in Greek Mythology; this may be where the Icarian Sea gets it's name, as it's the sea into which Icarus supposedly fell and drowned. The Icarians themselves are a race of winged humanoids who are laid low by hubris, but in this case it's the hubris of humans, rather than themselves, which results in their downfall.]]

** Justin's Immortal Aura skill. It always gives you a lot of experience when used, and with the game's tendency to always have those handy healing save points near, you can easily grind Justin into epic GameBreaker levels.
