* TheRealRemingtonSteele: While you (probably) caught a glimpse of Lady Elspeth earlier, she has no relevance to the plot beyond HaveANiceDeath until some time after Rosella impersonates her to escape Ooga Booga.



* WarpWhistle: Count Tsepish's flute
* WarpZone: The rainbow bridges in Etheria.



* WeightAndSwitch: At the bottom of the well, Valanice has to replace the turquoise piece with her bead in order not to trigger the refilling of the well.

Downplayed in that weight and volume are irrelevant: The idol will happily accept the tiny bead in exchange for the... less tiny... puzzle piece.



** Rosella is less concerned about this and asks if he has strawberry instead. She does decline...but only because he doesn't have strawberry.

* PointOfNoReturn: Surprisingly averted. You can revisit places and fetch missing objects any time during the game.

You can revisit places Only two of note: The elevator from Vulcanix to Ooga Booga (which collapses at the end of chapter 2 or the beginning of chapter 4) and fetch missing objects any time during the game.Were Woods after Rosella uses the SilverBullet in chapter 4 and Valanice uses the Were Beast Salve in chapter 5 (though in the latter case only until she rescues Count Tsepish and gets his [[WarpWhistle flute]]).

* DiagonalBilling: Though not a case of actual billing on the poster or box cover, the game design reflects this in how the lead characters are treated with equal importance. Both Valanice and Rosella star in three chapters each: Valanice in 1,3 and 5, Rosella in 2, 4 and 6. Rosella appears above Valanice on the original box cover and is first to appear in the introduction, but Valanice stars in the first chapter. Rosella is the catalyst for the story and her chapters are more directly related to the central plot (saving Eldritch from the volcano and Malicia), but Valanice's final chapter is far longer than Rosella's, granting her more overall screentime. Valanice also appears in person in the final chapter, whereas Rosella never appears in any of Valanice's chapters. Both contribute equally to helping the various citizens of Eldritch and the land would not have been saved without the efforts of both.

** Considering the number of animation houses involved, it's little wonder that the character models for Valanice and Rosella tend to lack consistency across chapters.


Added DiffLines:

* PlotHole: [[spoiler:A deleted segment from chapter 4 featured Rosella meeting Attis (in either his human or stag form, depending on Valanice's actions in chapter 3), where Rosella first learns that her mother is searching for her and Attis discovers that Malicia is responsible for all that has gone wrong. Attis also reveals that Malicia is Titania's sister in this conversation. There is no explanation in the final game as to how Attis learns of Malicia's involvement, and Titania's importance to the plot becomes muddled without knowing who she is until the very end.]]

Rosella, princess of Daventry, is upset because her mother, Valanice, [[ArrangedMarriage wants her to get married]], while she just wants to have adventures. She falls into a whirlpool and is kidnapped by a troll; she wakes up to discover she has transformed into a troll and is engaged to the King of Trolls. Valanice dives in after her daughter, but winds up in a desert in the land of Eldritch. Gameplay [[SwitchingPOV alternates]] between Rosella and Valanice, who want to escape the Troll Kingdom and find Rosella, respectively. Later, they discover Eldritch is about to be destroyed by an evil fairy named Malicia, and their goals shift from finding each other, to saving the world.

-->'''Valanice''': Oh boy. I should be more careful around big spiders.
