* CaptainCrash: Rookie Pilot Yuki has crashed ''eighteen'' planes before the start of the game. 'No. 19' crashes into the ground after [[spoiler:your mom hides inside the plane]]. 'No. 20' is given to you by Schmidt. You crash it [[spoiler:into a dragon on the way to Arcriff while trying to get a closer look at its rider, Emelious.]]. It's later revealed [[spoiler:by Schmidt that none of Yuki's original 19 planes were ever going to fly anyway, due to his unsophisticated designs.]] Yuki also crashes [[spoiler:a hastily made glider when the Flight Units are rendered inoperable]].
* DeathDealer: Dahna.

* DeathDealer: Dahna.Dahna fights with telekinetically controlled playing cards.



* DistressCall: While flying around the world, your on-board radio allows you to intercept distress calls from other pilots in trouble. You can't help them, though.
* {{Expy}}: Pretty much the ''entire major cast'' is recycled from earlier ''Grandia'' games. Yuki is halfway between [[{{VideoGame/Grandia}} Justin]] and [[VideoGame/GrandiaII Ryudo]], Ulf is basically [[{{VideoGame/Grandia}} Rapp]] 2.0, Emelious is WAY too similar to [[VideoGame/GrandiaII Melfice]], [[spoiler: Hect is basically Liete with a violin,]] etc etc...

* KudzuPlot: Yuki's lifelong dreams are twofold: build a plane that can cross the ocean to the mainland, and meet his hero Schmidt, a living legend in aviation. You do both of those half way through the first disc. After acquiring the plane, the speed in which the plot drops Yuki's obsession makes it seem like an AbortedArc. (It's possible that he's just so satified with his plane that he doesn't bring it up ever again).

* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: With all of the Guardians accounted for, you head to Surmania to face BigBad Emelious once and for all. When beaten, he kidnaps Alfina and gets away on a dragon. D'oh.

*** Excise Omegas are also very lucrative to hunt: they not only drop Magic Seeds, which fully restores a character and increases max MP by 10, but they also drop the extremely powerful Spirit Sword which is Yuki's most powerful weapon.

Alfina is one of the last surviving members of an ancient tribe capable of communing with the god-like Sacred Beasts which protect the planet. Yuuki joins Alfina on her search for her missing big brother Emelious, who was last seen with some incredibly suspicious characters.

Yuuki, an amateur mechanic and pilot, idolises the famous Sky Captain Schmidt and dreams of replicating his achievement of crossing the ocean on a plane of his own design. When his latest attempt begins to fail mid-flight (due to the unwitting sabotage of his mother Miranda), Yuuki happens to notice a young girl being chased by Bad Guys. [[TheDulcineaEffect Being the JRPG protagonist that he is]], Yuuki immediately goes to save her.

It turns out that the girl is named Alfina, who is one of the last members of a tribe (the Communicators) that can converse with the god-like Sacred Beasts that protect the planet. Yuuki joins Alfina on her search for her missing big brother Emelious, who was last seen with some incredibly suspicious characters.

** The Excise verse realm-type enemies are essentially an entire genus of these, with the first kind (Excise Sigma) being an actual full-fledged boss itself. The real honor goes to the Excise Omegas in the antepenultimate room of TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon however, having no shortage of HP, ''being able to CONSTANTLY cancel any of your attacks'', and being extremely fast on top of it all. They usually come with enemies that have an ability to nullify magic as well, which just makes it all the worse.
