* BoringButPractical: Of the wide diversity of units the game offers, you will likely end up sticking to very basic units like archers and infantry mostly, with a lot of healing magic. Aerial units are easy to loose and many other units like sappers or fire elementals suffer from CripplingOverspecialization or are just not that powerful.



* ElvesVersusDwarves: Averted. Both are races driven to the brink of extinction, elves existing only as Protectorates under Hironeiden now, dwarves being scattered to the mountains north of Ecclesia, making it easy for them to bond over their shared situation, especially when the dwarf elder takes in elven refugees.. It is said that they did not get along well in the past, but the dwarves and elves we see in Rupert's campaign are good friends.

* RidiculouslyFastConstruction: Played straight, differently from other examples. Because the game isn't an RTS the construction doesn't appear on screen but there's nothing stopping you from switching a unit from infantry to cavalry or siege weaponry between missions, even if your in the desert miles from the nearest city.

** Let's not forget the time he's caught in Gerald's trap, where an entire forest is set ablaze with Regnier's forces trapped inside. The troops celebrate, believing they've finally taken down Regnier... until they see Regnier calmly walking toward them through the flames as if nothing happened.

* TheHorde: Basically how the human kingdoms see the orc and ogre tribes, especially after they are united by Regnier into a single organization (the commonwealth of Hexter).

* TheUsualAdversaries: Played straight with humans and elves fighting orcs, ogres, and dark elves. [[spoiler:Averted once Encablossa appears and starts making freakish mutated enemies]].

** Justified in that the villains are half-vampires and darkelves, who are superhumanly agile and fast, but lack the constitution and strength of humans, dwarves or orcs. When Lucretia's group first encounters heavy human infantry, they are confused why anyone would slow themselves down that much with metal armor, especially when it just makes you vulnerable to lightning magic (which is a very common sight on Bersia's battlefields).

* BolivianArmyEnding: The ending to Cirith's campaign is...bitter.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: The games draw some pretty obvious parallels to the historical crusades (and not the idealized variant either, but the unforgiving war of extermination between races and ideologies), and one might also see a few similarities to World War One.

* WarIsHell: Perhaps one of the most subtle examples ever. It's become a clichee by now to point out that the [[WhatMeasureIsAMook regular soldiers you are killing]] might have family and loved ones too. However, due to the point-of-view mechanics, you actually experience it in this game, seeing the story from both sides and realizing that you're ''killing the friends of your previous characters''.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In-universe example: Regnier's epilogue states that to this day, it is unknown how Ecclesia learned of the Ancient Heart. However, Walter's campaign in ''Heroes'' explains this one, Walter was whispered to by Encablossa posing as God, who told him of it and ordered him to find it, causing the Ecclesians to make a secret alliance with the Kaedes in order to obtain the Heart.
