* GoryDiscretionShot: It's partially this (or at least a "massacre discretion shot", since ''LastScenario'''s sprite style isn't prone to being gory anyway) and partially a "spoiler discretion shot" when [[spoiler: the Northern Outpost is singlehandedly taken over by Felgorn]].

* EverythingTryingToKillYou: There are many strange random enemies, including mushrooms, dolls, wood walls[[note]]:which actually ''don't'' try to kill you, being the random encounter equivalent of a JokeCharacter. They have no attack and HP on par with a boss, so they just stand there while the heroes smash them[[/note]], moles, two very different types of idols, ''emoticons'', and in a BonusDungeon [[spoiler:biting "[[ChestMonster Killer Crystals]]" [[WallMaster disguised]] as save crystals with slightly different color]]. The bosses are even stranger: you will e.g. come to fight a wall with an engraved face, not to mention the [[GratuitousGerman Zeitgeist]], which is basically a big clock. Don't forget the Tomes and Keys (which are ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin) either.

* LimitBreak: Interestingly, the spells, not the characters, have these. Whenever a character's "Crisis" bar fills up from being whacked around enough, they can use a spell's special "Crisis" ability, though it usually costs a lot of MP. [[note]]Party members ''can'' attack each other, but to prevent abuse, this won't count into the crisis score.[[/note]]
** As a Franchise/FinalFantasy ShoutOut, one of these spells (Crisis cast of Bolster, a DesperationAttack) is ''called'' Limit Break.

* ArmorIsUseless: Due to an oversight in the way defensive stats are handled. Defensive stats on their own do nothing; they merely influence a ''second'' defense value that involves percentile reduction. However, due to the way this is scaled, defensive stats do virtually nothing until late in the game, and since armor only augments defensive stats it's nothing but a money sink for most of the game. (This may be a reason for the game's [[NintendoHard intense difficulty]].)

** The Fury spellcard heals your entire party, and pretty well, too. The problem? It makes them berserk. The crisis spell heals even more but causes ''confusion''. Again, though, it can become AwesomeYetPractical if you equip the right status protection...

* AwesomeYetPractical:
** The Enlight spell, which gives one character a buff that is similar to Regen, only it regenerates ''MP''.
** On a similar note, the Chi spell, which regenerates a percentage of the user's MP ''for free''. Can't be used outside of battle, though.
** On top of that, there's the X-Shield spell, which doubles both magical and physical defense for one character. The crisis cast makes ''the whole party'' take half damage from everything.
** Also Steal once you get the Thief Glove accessory, which makes the attempt almost 100% successful with some monsters - you really cannot refuse free Gold Dusts and Serpent Fangs.

The basic premise of '''''Last Scenario''''' is to start out with the most cliched CRPG plot imaginable, and then twist it into something else. Before long, the cliches start to fall apart at an alarming rate, and what emerges is a long, compelling plot involving (among other things) international politics, betrayal, and the occasional bit of geology.
