* AwesomeButImpractical: Nearly any skill that costs more than 70 Magic points to cast (nearly because there are some that are worth it), but especially the "ultimate" spells. Sure, you gain Magic points every turn, but you're waiting 5 turns just to cast one spell. By that time you've probably already killed almost everything on the map already. The upside is that most of the ultimate spells hit everywhere on the map at once for large amounts of damage and don't hurt your allies. The downside is, you have to charge another five turns to do it again.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Jeanne and Liane were ordinary girls. Then war came to town. They became near-fanatical, astonishing soldiers whose only goal was to drive the English out of France.

''Jeanne d'Arc'' is a TurnBasedStrategy RolePlayingGame for the UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable from the very talented folks at [[{{Level5}} Level-5]]. It's [[TheThemeParkVersion based]] on the [[SadlyMythtaken reimagining]] of [[InsistentTerminology Saint]] [[JeanneDArchetype Joan of Arc]]'s involvement in the Hundred Years' War as part of a greater war between mankind and the "Reapers," [[TheLegionsOfHell demonic creatures from the Netherworld]]. Cue the HenshinHero transformations, the half-human warriors, magic spells and, of course, the mystical armlets that make all of this possible.

* NamesTheSame: The Reapers are also the name of a street gang in ''VideoGame/{{inFamous}}'' and [[spoiler: an ancient alien race]] in ''Franchise/MassEffect'', both of which came after this game.
* NoExportForYou: You'd think that a game based on ''Joan of Arc'', of all people, would see the light of day in Europe? Think again. (In all fairness the PSP ''is'' Region-free)

NonLethalKO: Zig-Zagged. Normally, characters in your party that are defeated in battle don't die since they all have a story presence, so they simply won't be available for the rest of the battle and you'll only lose if everyone in the party is wiped out [[TimedMission or the number of turns run out]]. However, missions that demand a certain character survive to the end (usually Jeanne) will meet an instant GameOver, with the implication that they ''do'' die.

** Perhaps unintentionally, Jeanne bears a certain resemblance to [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Arturia Pendragon]], ranging from outer appearance (complete with IdiotHair) to facial expressions to general attitude. Ironically, [[HilariousInHindsight the Nasuverse Jeanne would eventually turn out to be very similar to Arturia herself, being considered one of the "Saberfaces"]].
