** In the first game:
*** The fights against the [[PsychoRangers Delilas Family]] consist of three separate and consecutive one-on-one duels, with no chance to rest or save until all three are defeated.
*** Earlier in the game, Gala will fight his [[RivalTurnedEvil rival]] and former friend, Songi, solo. After the fight, he remarks that in the future, the party will have to fight him as a team.
** Despite the title, there are only two instances of this in ''Duel Saga'':
*** Lang has the option to fight the second boss, the Mighty Balken, solo, but can subvert this by fighting with Maya. If you choose the former option, Balken will commend you on your honor.
*** At the end of the InevitableTournament, Lang will have to fight [[spoiler:The BlackKnight Rauss]] in a one-on-one showdown in the arena.

* TimeLimitBoss:
** The fight against Koru. You have four turns to defeat him, and then... BOOM! Koru explodes, vaporizing half the region, dealing [[{{Cap}} 9999 damage]] to each of your characters, and instantly giving you a Game Over.
** Subverted in ''Duel Saga'' with the fight against the Mighty Balken. The fight is played up to be a timed fight against the drawbridge closing. When you defeat Balken, he collapses and the shock of his fall re-opens the drawbridge and allows for your escape.

%%* EncumbranceSystem: The weight system. Each accessory, weapon, or armor has a weight attached to it, and characters can't equip a combination of equipment that puts them over the weight capacity. Since the character's weight capacity increases as a function of the character's level, it also doubles as an enforced variant of LevelLockedLoot.



* GiantEnemyCrab: The first boss of ''Duel Saga'' is the Gather Crab. Later, {{Palette Swap}}s of the same show up as normal enemies.

** Later on, when getting ready to take flight to the Soren camp, refusing twice causes Gala to [[WhatTheHellHero flip out at Vahn]], locking the choices to "Yes" and "Yes".

* BonusBoss: Lapis. Notable for having an ATK stat that dwarfs even the final boss, and for having crazy-long combos easily capable of dealing 7,000 HP of damage per round, while , forcing them your party members will have a max HP stat somewhere in the upper 2,000's or a bit over 3,000.[[note]]Hint: Since Lapis is Light-elemental, you can equip Luminous Jewels or the Light Egg/Talisman to halve the damage output, making his attacks survivable with a good accessory setup and a little luck[[/note]]

* BiggerBad: Kind of. [[spoiler:Cort]] is the more powerful and dangerous of the two but Rouge is both directly and indirectly responsible for everything that happens in the game. Take into account that [[spoiler:Cort's]] mind has possibly been corrupted by a rouge Ra-Seru[[note]] not Rouge himself but one of the Ra-Seru he led against Tieg[[/note]] and it becomes very muddled who the actual villain is.

''Legend of Legaia'' (''Legaia Densetsu'' in Japan) is a two game {{RPG}} series commissioned by Sony Computer Entertainment. The first was developed by Contrail, with its follow-up, ''Legaia II: Duel Saga'', moving to the PS2 and developed by Prokion. Despite similarities in gameplay and some character designs, they have next to nothing to do with each other.

* DumbMuscle: Played straight with Gala's PsychoRangers counterpart Che Delilas who constantly talks about smashing stuff and who's fighting style is MoreDakka with a giant hammer. Averted with Gala though. The story makes it clear that he is the smartest of the heroes, and most of the people encountered in the game, and his high HP, DEF, ATK, make him easily the toughest of the three physically.
