* ActionGirl: A few join the Hero and provide extra attack power.



* BadassPrincess: When armed with an AutomaticCrossbow.



* MoreDakka: The Princess' crossbow has a ridiculously high fire rate. One particular fairy power-up allows her to deal [[SpinAttack death in all directions]] for a few seconds.

* UpgradeArtifact: The crossbow radically alters the Princess' personality to that of a slightly arrogant ActionGirl when she holds it. The "Hard Material" and "Very Hard Material" make your crossbow more powerful.

* TimeyWimeyBall: The Time Goddess seems to be able to selectively turn back time to the Hero's benefit. Destroyed villages are restored, avalanches are reversed, and forest fires are reset, but the Hero's own hard work is generally unaffected. You get to keep your gold, experience, and items, NPCs you've rescued stay rescued, minibosses you've defeated don't return, etc. This is used to great effect in one plot branch: if you pay her enough, the Time Goddess erases your DealWithTheDevil, but not anything you did with the Devil's power.

* ShoutOut: The game is filled with them. For example, the item descriptions in the Goddess Room include references to Creator/MontyPython, OnePiece, and plenty of others.

* ShoutOut: Lots. There's even a retro-themed level with graphics reminiscent of the original green-screened Game Boy and a boss named [[VideoGame/ZeroWing CATS]]. (And yes, it does reference ''that'' meme).
** Not to mention the [[Manga/DragonBall Turtle Hermit and Catherine the witch]].

* DealWithTheDevil: One path has the Hero making a deal with a powerful demon and gaining huge stat and HP boosts. This power is granted for three more stages in this path, at the end of which the Hero's soul is due to her. The Time Goddess saves him from this fate (at a hefty price, naturally).
** Notably, those four levels are almost impossible to die on. The devil is true to their word: you become damn near unstoppable.



* DealWithTheDevil: One path has the Hero making a deal with a powerful demon and gaining huge stat and HP boosts. For the rest of the mission and the next three in the path, this power makes the Hero nearly unstoppable. In return, the Hero must give the demon his soul at the end of final mission in the path. The Time Goddess saves him from this fate (at a hefty price, naturally).



* LevelGrinding: Extremely accelerated compared to other role-playing games. It's not unusual to gain a dozen of levels within a minute.
** That said, you will have to grind to get some of the Titles.
** Grind is a part of the gameplay mechanics. It is a matter of whether you wish to battle monsters to level up/gain items, or manage your time performing other tasks.

* TimeyWimeyBall: In some cases, turning back time resets events, like undestroying villages or reversing an avalanche. In others, turning back time does nothing, like making the mole coerced into causing earthquakes not reappear when freed. In addition, you keep your gold, exp, and items.
** {{Justified|Trope}} in that you've got a goddess who controls time on your side, so naturally she'd rewind it in whatever way is most convenient.
*** This is actually critical at one point: If you pay her enough, the Time Goddess erases your DealWithTheDevil, but not anything you did with the Devil's power.

* InfiniteStockForSale: Possibly averted in the multiplayer; you can set shops to have their stock limited to one item, forcing people to race for them.

Added DiffLines:

* OverlyLongFightingAnimation: The summons you can do with elemental stones parody this. They only take about ten or fifteen seconds... that the timer ''doesn't pause for'', so you can easily run out of time if you try to use them without rewinding time before the battle.
