** Erebonia has its own example of this in the Lion War, which was fought 250 years ago and had an even greater impact which is still felt in the present. [[spoiler:Just ask Arianrhod. There's also the civil war that ''was'' this trope in Ao but is going to be an ''onscreen'' war in the Erebonia arc. It gets kicked off during the conclusion to ''Cold Steel''.]]

Added DiffLines:

* LongRunnerCastTurnover: Every arc has its own party. Some major characters from one arc show up in secondary roles in later arcs, but the only characters who come close to showing up in every game are Blueblanc (causer of problems in sidequests and occasional chapter boss), Anton and Ricky (background characters and occasional provider of sidequests).

** It also partially averts KarlMarxHatesYourGuts; for example while you can't buy Honey Syrup in Armorica for cheap and sell it for a profit in Mainz (which you'd think would be logical since it's made in the former and the latter is a remote area that has to import everything and [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything a sidequest actually makes a point of how profitable the stuff is when exported]]) you ''can'' derive a profit from your labor with certain cooking recipes that sell for more than the cost of the ingredients needed to make the items. You can also derive a profit from selling the fish you catch.

* FirstEpisodeSpoiler: The series runs on a continuous narrative. It's pretty much impossible to talk about any game after FC without revealing [[spoiler:the existence of Ouroboros or the facts that 'Professor Alba' is a villain and that Joshua is an amnesiac former assassin]]. It's pretty much impossible to talk about any game after SC without mentioning [[spoiler:that Renne is also an Ouroboros assassin, that Liberl Ark exists and that Kevin and Campanella are both far more important than the people they initially present themselves as being.]] It's also impossible to talk about Ao without mentioning [[spoiler:the existence of the D∴G Cult and Gnosis]] from Zero... and Ao itself is a FirstEpisodeSpoiler for ''Cold Steel'', making a large chunk of the plot (though not the specific details) a massive ForegoneConclusion that makes it hard to talk about the game with people not familiar with the earlier entries without spoiling things. Then it's pretty much impossible to talk about ''Cold Steel II'' without mentioning how [[spoiler:Crow is <C>, the ILF are agents of the Noble Faction, Sharon is a member of Ouroboros and Vita and Misty are the same person and ''also'' a member of Ouroboros]].

And finally, it's impossible to talk about ''Cold Steel III'' without mentioning that [[spoiler: the Reformist Faction wins and Osborne takes over Crossbell (though this was already spoiled by ''Ao''), Osborne is not dead ''and'' has declared war against Ouroboros', Osborne is Rean's father, Crow is dead, Ouroboros ''loses'' for the first time, Emma is a witch, Rufus is TheMole for Osborne and is the Governor-General of Crossbell, Altina and Millium were obtained by Osborne from The Thirteen Factories, and Lloyd and Rean had a duel at the Geofront (alongside Rixia and Altina)]].
