** There's also Zemurian Prussia in Erebonia, which has not only a ton of Germanic names but a major character is an {{Expy}} of OttoVonBismarck, right down to his nickname 'The Blood and Iron Chancellor'. Then there's Calvard, which has traits in common with the United States of America. It is a relatively young country with a democratic form of government and immigrant-heavy culture... it also has a heavy Japanese/Chinese influence courtesy of its biggest immigrant groups, so the currently nameless countries they came from are doubtless fantasy counterpart cultures themselves. [[CityOfAdventure Crossbell City]] is somewhere between New York and (per WordOfGod) Hong Kong.

* SentientPhlebotinum: [[spoiler:It's later revealed in the franchise that Sept-Terion possess a certain level of intelligence; Aureole, if you read the ancient civilization report, stated about Aureole tried to foil Celeste D Auslesse's plan to seal it in another dimension. Demiurge, unique from the others (for now) also has conscience to the point that it self-terminated after knowing what its power caused to civilization who used its power.]]

* LittleHeroBigWar: Each arc is more about the heroes trying to make sure their homeland survives Ouroboros plan and claiming their own [[CharacterDevelopment personal victories]] than stopping the organization once and for all. The Society is simply too big for each individual party to take down.

Added DiffLines:

* YouCantThwartStageOne: In general, Ouroboros's plans are thoroughly laid out so that there's no way to keep them from accomplishing their bare minimum objectives even if a few Enforcers are beaten in boss battles. The only reason why the Enforcers even bother entertaining the party's challenges is because they have [[ItsPersonal personal reasons]] for fighting the party, they need to stall for time, [[BloodKnight they're bored]], or some combination of the previous reasons.

* InASingleBound: Ouroboros members that don't teleport tend to do superhuman jumps whenever they need to escape.



* [[spoiler:NGOSuperpower: Ouroboros, full stop. The upper leadership of the organization consists of only eight individuals with a maximum of 22 top agents below that. They have military technology that puts the best that everyone else can offer to shame and they have their fingers in every pie. If something strange is happening in any country, flip a coin. If it comes up heads, it's probably Ouroboros. Tails, it's probably someone being manipulated by Ouroboros.]]

* SlidingScaleOfVillainEffectiveness: Ouroboros is firmly established at High, and borders on Infinite at times. [[spoiler:In both the Liberl and Crossbell arcs, they end the games having gotten ''exactly'' what they wanted, despite everything the heroes do. This in spite of the fact that Weissmann's personal plan in SC was foiled. In Ao, Ouroboros even ends with a bonus catch of two new members to replace the ones lost during SC.]]

Added DiffLines:

* VillainTeleportation: Some Ouroboros members are fond of this, ensuring they complete their mission whether or not they defeat the party.

* MagicKnight: Technically, every playable character is capable of using an orbment, though their proficiency with melee and arts vary for the sake of CompetitiveBalance.

Added DiffLines:

* DragonWithAnAgenda: This is actually encouraged in Ouroboros, where Enforcers and Anguis have their own separate agendas and only partake in an EvilPlan when their agendas overlap.

* TheMainCharactersDoEverything: Averted. While the main characters resolve incidents that should be far beyond their position's capabilities, they still need the help of more powerful organizations and individuals, especially when it comes to dealing with Ouroboros. [[spoiler:This is actually deconstructed in the very first game, where Alan Richard treats Cassius Bright as a hero who near-singlehandedly won the 100 Days War, causing him to become desperate for forbidden power when his idol retires from the military.]]
