* {{Deconstruction}}: Lacryma's story deconstructs the idea of summoning and conjuration magic. While everyone believes that all those weapons, spells and Phantoms are conjured up from nothing via the runes, when Lacryma is transported to the Elves' world she discovers that the Phantoms are the local wild-life there and their loss is affecting the world's ecology. Also creating something with Kartia removes an equal amount of material from that world and slowly the Elves' world is dying.



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: A love-struck Kun asks Troy about Lacryma, to which Troy says "How should I know? Do I look like Lacryma's pimp!" For that remark, Kun threatens to kick the crap out of Troy.



* GuideDamnIt: The mighty Pair rune. It's only mentioned in the Japanese guide to the game, but to create the mightiest Phantoms and weapons - your party can only use silk runes at Stage 15 (including for item crafting and altering terrain) and you can only attack the dragons there with physical attacks or Phantoms. Only then can the Pair rune show up. This led to MANY players in NA and EU at their wits' end trying to create the Fynus phantom.

Added DiffLines:

* ReligiousBruiser: Lacryma is a very devout shrine warrior and the reason she cannot summon Phantoms is that it's against her religion. [[spoiler: After her crisis of faith and becoming an Inquirer, she becomes able to summon.]]


Added DiffLines:

* StepfordSmiler: Alana is always putting on a cheerful face, but deep down she feels hurt by being in Lacryma's shadow. After she drunkenly reveals this to Kun, she makes him promise not to reveal this, for despite her resentment - she really does love Lacryma as if she were Alana's little sister and so much of Lacryma's life is already unhappy.

* BossInMookClothing: The Fynus phantoms that show up at the final stages of the game. Where before your characters were in immune to the enemies and could wipe out even the toughest enemies in 3 or 4 hits, the Fynus have defense ratings so high that if you don't the Pair rune equipment, top tier arena or Level 20 phantom equipment, they're immune to attacks from all but your strongest physical characters (Toxa, Kun, Lacryma and Alana) using the best non-Pair rune crafted weapons. The final bosses in comparison are easy to take out.

* ArmorPiercingAttack: In game, the elemental cannons are described by a nobleman as being extremely powerful. If it's your first time playing, it seems like he's wrong as the elemental cannons do good but not great damage, while yours and the enemies' weapons do damage that puts the cannons to shame. However if you play the game again with Level 20 characters, where the enemies do no damage to your party, the elemental cannons start completely go through all their defenses and in 3 or 4 hits, one of your characters is dead.

* CrutchCharacter: In his ATasteOfPower scenario, Rimzan will slaughter anything and everything. Later on, your Knight characters will have caught up, you'll have enchanted better weapons than his BFS, and he'll still only have the skill to use two Kartia (even Kun gets better than that).

* InfiniteSwordPlusOne: The best weapon in the game is the Excalibur, it gives you amazing attack power (enough to squish those pesky Fynus) and will completely recover your health. Too bad you can only get it by finishing the arena. The other top end weapon is the Boink Hammer, you get those by raising a Kyau, the weakest Phantoms in the game, to Level 20 and converting them, considering that the Kyau does scratch damage even at high level and have almost zero defense, good luck keeping one alive. But if you do the Boink Hammer has the highest damage output in the game.

* ItemCrafting: One of the most important elements in the game, the best equipment in the game is based on what you craft using Kartia or Level 20 Phantoms, with only the items won in the arena rivaling them.


Added DiffLines:

* UntouchableUntilTagged: In Kartia, earning experience does not improve your health. What it does is improve your attack and defense stats. With good armour and a strong character, it reaches a point where enemies keep having their attacks bounce off your party members for no damage. But whenever a human or Phantom is injured, its attack and defense attributes goes down. So previously invulnerable units may find themselves being hit by attacks they'd previously been immune to.

It's not the best game ever, but it's worth a look.

* MagikarpPower: In the early chapters, Toxa's team is stronger due to Toxa's physical power and Alana's ability as a MagicKnight, while Posha, on Lacryma's team, is a complete waste of space. Later on, though, Posha joins Toxa's side, and while she eventually becomes a moderately-useful character, Lacryma is a powerhouse late-game, Kun becomes a Knight on par with Toxa (though lacking Toxa's Kartia abilities), and you can't get all of the Text in Toxa's quest (in fact, even the basic Iron text can be LostForever in Toxa's if you aren't careful).
