''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.

''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 ''[[VideoGame/LegaiaIIDuelSaga Legaia II: Duel Saga'', 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.



The second game is based in a completely different world, with nothing carrying over from the first game. It centers around Lang, one of the exceedingly rare "Mystics" that have the power to summon elemental spirits that they contain within themselves. In most places, Mystics are shunned due to their strange powers, and strange tattoos that mark their bodies. Lang's friends and family don't have this prejudice; on his first day of work, the [[CosmicKeystone Aqualith]] is stolen from the village, and he is warned to be careful in the outside world, searching for it in order to restore the village's water supply. Along the way, he winds up gathering a group of fellow Mystics to himself, and begins finding the way to save the world from Avalon, the man that stole Aqualith.



!! ''Legaia II: Duel Saga'' shows examples of:

[[folder:A-J]]
* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: The Sewers under Darakin, which you must traverse at least twice during the game.
* AdiposeRex: Doplin is the ruler of Darakin and is massively overweight.
* ArbitraryHeadcountLimit: While you will eventually have a party of five, only three can participate in battle at any one time.
* AsleepForDays: After a near-fatal encounter with [[spoiler:Avalon]], Lang wakes up, only to be told by Nancy that he had been sleeping for 5 days and probably would have died had he gone without medical care much longer.
* AssKicksYou: The [[{{Pun}} tail end]] of Sharon's "Peach Surprise" art.
* BackFromTheDead:
** [[spoiler:Rauss was killed by Kazan before the game]], but has survived in spirit thanks to cursed armor, for the purpose of fighting once more.
** More generally, in the Dream Match, you can face any number of characters who have died in the main story, including [[spoiler:Balken, Raynof, Marienne, Elliott, Velna, and Vestra]]. This is implied to take place in a "space between dimensions", giving a HandWave for why the party can fight them.
* BadassNormal:
** Ayne -- he is the only party member that lacks an Origin, but is over eight feet tall, has enormous muscles, and wields an axe as large as Lang. His strength is enormous as well, able to push hundreds of ''tons'' of rock around.
** Bubba also lacks an origin, and has muscles nearly the size of Ayne. As Ayne is a giant from Jinga, Bubba is likely the most powerful human lacking an Origin on the planet.
* BareFistedMonk: Kazan.
* BeefGate: Elfin is notable for the ''exact'' level at which you're supposed to beat her: 9, when you get your fourth Art Block. At that point, she's not all that threatening, but she will ''destroy'' you if you haven't ground yourself high enough yet.
* BettyAndVeronica: Maya and Sharon. Coupled with how, depending on the choices you make in the game, you can make one or the other (or ''both'') fall for you. Unfortunately, [[spoiler: this doesn't affect the ending]].
* BigEater: Lampshaded with one of the titles Lang can acquire, "Glutton King", earned by eating all of the food Sharon makes in Tanza. This is also shown in Darakin, if Lang orders the Premium Deluxe Full-Course Meal at Chez Snobbe.
* BigGuy: Ayne.
* {{Bishonen}}: Elliot.
* BlackKnight / BloodKnight: [[spoiler:Rauss]], who wears possessed and cursed ebon armor to [[spoiler:[[BackFromTheDead reanimate his spirit and corpse]] to fight once more.]]
* BonusDungeon: The Centurion Trials. Not so much a dungeon, but a series of 100 consecutive fights[[note]]One can heal between fights, but cannot save or leave without starting over[[/note]] against progressively stronger monsters.
* CastFromHitPoints: The HP Siphon skill, which increases your attack power, but drains the character's HP to do so.
* CastFromMoney: Gold Siphon, which does the same thing, but drains your money.
* TheChosenOne: Lang and [[spoiler:Avalon]] were chosen by [[spoiler:the Source Forge]] to shape the world and guide its future.
* CombinationAttack: Variable Arts.
* CoolBigSis: Sharon.
* CorruptPolitician / CorruptChurch: Bishop Doplin; he is ostensibly a religious figure of St. Joprian and appears to be the ''de facto'' ruler of Darakin, fitting both tropes.
* CosmicKeystone: The three sacred stones -- the Pyrolith, Aerolith, and Aqualith -- that are needed to operate the Source Forge and the power of creation itself.
* CriticalEncumbranceFailure: Regarding the weight system for equipment. It is possible for a character to equip weapons and armor right up to their capacity limit with no detriment, but going one pound over is impossible. Justified in the sense that the weight system is designed to enforce LevelLockedLoot; there is no restriction on how many healing items or how much VendorTrash the party can carry
* CrutchCharacter: Both Kazan and Sharon when they join, for different reasons. Kazan joins at level 25 at a point when Lang and Maya are barely over 10, [[GameBreaker and can systematically destroy every encounter you get into for about two dungeons]], at which point the rest of the party, and the enemies, have caught up. Kazan never becomes useless, but he's never such a GameBreaker again, mostly because some of his arts are awkward to chain. Sharon joins at a high level herself, but not as comparatively high as Kazan. Her initial use comes from the speed at which she earns Art Blocks. If you play the game long enough for other characters to match her Art Blocks, she loses most of her niche, but she at least still have easily chain able arts.
* CursedWithAwesome: Mystics. They contain elemental spirits inside of them and have access to corresponding ElementalPowers. However, they are generally met with a combination of fear and revulsion; [[spoiler:Avalon's]] backstory shows that he [[ThenLetMeBeEvil turned unto evil]] because fellow villagers cast him out and attempted to kill him because of his being a Mystic.
* CuteMute: Maya for quite a bit of the game. [[spoiler: She eventually does get her voice back]]
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: The Ultimate Fang attack, a technique forbidden by the Sky Fang masters -- while most techniques are fueled by fighting spirit, this one draws power from one's (lack of) sanity. [[spoiler:Rauss]] overuses this technique, requiring his master [[spoiler:Kazan to kill him]].
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Dein finally gives up his grudge against Lang after being beat in sidejumping.
* DesperationAttack: To use a Mystic Art, that character must have, among other things, less than 50% HP.
* TheDeterminator: Lang. Seen in particular at the end of the game when his determination and will, along with ThePowerOfFriendship (and Hope) are used to bring new life to the Source Forge and prevent the world's destruction.
* DirtyOldMan: Kazan, who is 60 years old, yet still tries to peep at the girls in the party when they're in hot springs.
* TheDragon: [[spoiler:Velna, to Avalon. Doplin]] fancies himself as this, but it is clear that he is merely an UnwittingPawn to be sacrificed when [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness he has finished playing his role]] in their plan.
* DualBoss:
** Elliott and Marienne. The first fight against the duo is a HopelessBossFight; the second time, you can defeat them.
** The penultimate boss is against [[spoiler:Velna and Vestra]]; this battle is unique in that the character's Origin is a separate combatant who can be attacked directly.
* {{Duel Boss}}es:
** 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.
* ElementalPowers: Each Origin associates with one:
** KillItWithFire: Lang's fiery Origin, Galea.
** HealingHands[=/=]MakingASplash: Maya's life Origin, Rivas. While her powers are explicitly life-based, Rivas herself seems to be made of water, and the backgrounds of her attacks shows flowing water.
** DishingOutDirt: Kazan's earth Origin, Deva.
** ShockAndAwe: Sharon's electric Origin, Arrode.
** DarkIsEdgy[=/=]DarkIsEvil: Elliott's black Origin, Raskia.
** HolyHandGrenade[=/=]LightIsNotGood: {{Subverted|Trope}}, with Marianne's Origin, as Alvadis is dark elemental despite being the White Origin.
** There's also Velna's Origin Vestra, who commands powers over time and space, and [[spoiler:Avalon's Origin Igohl]], which is simply the Ultimate Origin with virtually infinite power.
* EncounterRepellant / EncounterBait: The Heaven's Path consumable item lowers the random encounter rate, while the Hell's Path consumable item does the reverse. Later in the game, it is possible to get an accessory with No Encounters to reduce the encounter rate to 0.
* EvilCounterpart: Velna, who can use the same magic as Maya, and indeed, casts it in a very similar way. [[spoiler: This is because she's the lone survivor of the civilization Maya descends from.]]
* EvolvingAttack: Unlike in the first game, certain Hyper Arts can gain experience by using them in battle. For example, when Lang's Raging Fang art has gained 100 EXP, Lang can then use the evolved form, Roaring Fang. Master that technique and it will evolve further into the Sky Fang.
* FinalBossPreview: A strange man with gold eyes attacks the village of Nohl shortly after the first boss is defeated. It's the Final Boss, [[spoiler:Avalon]], and true to form, it is a CurbStompBattle; Lang's attacks are ineffective and [[spoiler:Avalon]] easily dispatches him. [[spoiler:Avalon]] intends to spare him, but his Origin [[spoiler:Igohl]] attempts to kill him; Lang manages to survive to get revenge.
* FiveManBand:
** TheLeader (Lang)
** TheLancer (Sharon)
** TheSmartGuy (Kazan)
** TheBigGuy ("Silent Eagle" Ayne)
** TheChick (Maya)
* FiveBadBand:
** BigBad ("Gold Eyes" [[spoiler:Avalon]])
** CoDragons (Marienne and Elliott)
** EvilGenius (Doplin)
** TheBrute ("The Black Swordsman" [[spoiler:Rauss]])
** DarkChick (Velna)
** TokenGoodTeammate: (Bubba and Elfin)
* GentleGiant: Ayne. In particular, he seems to have a soft spot for children, as evidenced in a scene in Nohl.
* GiantEnemyCrab: The first boss is the Gather Crab. Later, {{Palette Swap}}s of the same show up as normal enemies.
* GlobalAirship: At the conclusion of the InevitableTournament, you enlist the services of an air dragon, which is necessary to reach the penultimate dungeon, a tower floating high overhead.
* GoodMorningCrono: How Lang is introduced at the start of the game.
* GracefulLoser: After being defeat by the party, Bubba admits his defeat, and goes into an impressive speech about how ThatManIsDead and that he'll [[WalkingTheEarth wander the earth]] to find his own path. Then he hangs a [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] on it when he inner monologues that his speech was probably sufficient to save some face and that he should skedaddle now.
* GuideDangIt: You ''could'' keep randomly pressing combinations of three to six buttons until you stumble on a new Art by process of elimination. Or you could just look it up in a guide like everyone else does.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: Sharon.
* HarmlessVillain: The bumbling hunter duo Phanta and Balzac. (Made funnier by how Lang can actually make Phanta ''fall for him'' [[RelationshipValues if he treats her nice]], despite Balzac liking her.)
* HealthDamageAsymmetry: Played straight here, as opposed to in the first game. Even normal enemies have many times the player party's HP, but with the correct setups, the party can deal hundreds of thousands of damage per turn while only having a max HP of a few thousand.
* HermitGuru - Kazan lives in a secluded locale near the summit of Mt. Gabel. He is also an OldMaster to boot, being a seasoned expert in the teachings of the Sky Fang masters.
* HopelessBossFight:
** The FinalBossPreview against [[spoiler:Avalon]].
** The fight against Slogar (and Zoan Stoara) begins as one, but is averted when [[spoiler:Maya unleashes her hidden power]], weakening its protective barrier and rendering it vulnerable.
** The first fight against Elliott and Marienne is one - with sufficient LevelGrinding, you can defeat one of them, but they will summon their Origins at that point, and [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption you lose anyway]].
* HotSpringsEpisode: Complete with peeping.
* HPToOne: The Infinite One's Destruction Fist attack induces this on target party member.
* HulkSpeak: Balzac talks like this, to emphasize his being a musclebound oaf.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: The viewpoint held by both [[spoiler:Avalon and Velna; the latter because humans wiped out her race, the Kabel, the former because he was cast out and nearly killed by AllOfTheOtherReindeer for being a Mystic.]]
* InevitableTournament: Both games have a fighting arena, but only ''Duel Saga'' requires that you compete.
* InNameOnly: Apart from the battle system, ''Duel Saga'' has effectively nothing to do with the first game. Each game is entirely self-contained, and WordOfGod [[http://www.legendoflegaia.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=123 confirms]] that despite both games taking place on a continent called "Legaia", the two take place on entirely different worlds.
* InterspeciesRomance: Bubba (a human) is severely angry after Lang fights and kills Elfin (a somewhat anthropomorphized ape). It is eventually stated that the two were romantically attached, and loved each other.
* IntimateMarks: Characters known as "Mystics" have a PowerTattoo due to the presence of an elemental spirit (an "Origin") within them. At least one character refuses to identify the location of her mark; apparently it is somewhere embarrassing.
* ItemCrafting" A ''lot'' of this, especially the InfinityPlusOneSword.
* IWillWaitForYou: At the end of the game, [[spoiler: both Maya and Sharon are shown waiting for Lang as he goes off on more adventures]].
* KarmaMeter: Lang's personality changes depending on the dialog options you choose, into being brash, cowardly, gentlemanly..
* KamehameHadoken:
** Maya's [[CombinationAttack Variable Art]] finisher.
** Lang's ''Sleeping Dragon'' Hyper Art is this ''with a sword''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:L-Z]]
* TheLadette: Sharon.
* LargeHam: Both The Mighty Balken, and later, his brother, Raynof the Brave. In addition, Bubba also is this.
* LargeHamTitle: Both The Mighty Balken and Raynof the Brave, the former in particular.
--> '''The Mighty Balken''': I, Balken... The MIGHTY Balken!
** And later:
--> '''Raynof the Brave''': What! 'Balken?' You shall address him properly! It's 'The MIGHTY Balken' to you!!
* LastStand: Why, according to Chief West Wind, humans defeated the Kabel in the ancient war. The Kabel had the power of magic, but their reliance on it weakened their human spirit and determination to survive. As such, humanity's tenacity and will gave them the strength to defeat the Kabel in the millennia-old war.
* LazyBackup: Your backup party members will not bail you out if your main party dies in battle; you will get a Game Over. See ArbitraryHeadcountLimit.
* LevelGrinding: Titles and crafting involve massive amounts of grinding.
* LoveTriangle: Lang can get into one between Maya and Sharon. Most noticeably when they ask him if he likes older or younger women, and his answer affecting their mood and relationship with him.
* MaleGaze: Played with. One of a certain character's victory scenes shows a zoomed-in camera shot from her feet which quickly pans up to her face, while she poses. The character in question is Maya, who wears a baggy robe. [[{{Moe}} It's to show her cute side more than anything]].
* MarkOfTheSupernatural: People who house Origins inside their bodies have a distinctive tattoo or other marking on their skin.
* TheMentor: Kazan. Although he adventures with the party throughout the game, his role in the story is to provide advice and wisdom to the younger party members, especially Lang.
* MinigameZone: Phorchoon Casino. Lots of mini games, with all sorts of desirable prizes.
** The name also doubles as StealthPun, considering it's just a weird way of spelling "fortune".
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: The Infinite One, the name of the being created when [[spoiler:Avalon merges with his Origin, Igohl]].
* NeckLift: During the FinalBossPreview, [[spoiler:Avalon]] is seen telekinetically holding a helpless Galvan by the neck to emphasize his power and ruthlessness. It is likely that his Origin, [[spoiler:Igohl]] is actually responsible.
* NoodleIncident: Lang's PowerTattoo is easily viewable, and Sharon explains where hers is, but Maya shyly refuses to reveal where hers is located. Nobody bothers to ask Kazan where his is, much to his lamentation.
* NoOneShouldSurviveThat: [[spoiler:Igohl]] remarks as much when questioning how Lang survived being impaled by him near the beginning of the game. [[spoiler:Avalon explains that it is because he is a Star Shaper]]
* OmnicidalManiac: [[spoiler:Avalon]].
--> '''[[spoiler:Avalon]]''': I will destroy all life, leaving only me! I will be the world!
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:Avalon abandons his humanity completely and fuses with his Origin, Igohl]] to create the final boss, The Infinite One.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: In this case, you enlist an air dragon to serve as your GlobalAirship so you can reach the penultimate dungeon.
* PantyShot: Marienne's skirt is way too short, and you get a panty shot whenever the camera looks at her face-on. As she's apparently a little girl, seriously overweight ''and'' insane, this is concentrated FanDisservice.
* {{Pirate}}: Sharon. She and her crew are firmly of the "honorable rogue" variety, and have a set code of honor that they adhere to.
* PirateParrot: Sharon does have one, inherited from her late father, Alphis. If the party completes a short sidequest, said parrot will reveal the location of Alphis's treasure, notably including a Heaven's Secret.
* PointAndClickMap: Unlike the first game, you do not traverse the overworld, instead choosing a particular destination, and then being transported straight there.
* PornStash: Interestingly, an optional cutscene Lang can have is with Sharon finding his stash at his house. Kind of averted in that Sharon seems to find it cute and funny instead of getting angry.
* PostFinalBoss: Subtle, but a variation is present. After defeating the Infinite One, you must fight [[spoiler:Avalon]] one final time to finish him for good. However, his max HP is only about 27,000[[note]]By comparison, the immediately previous boss has about 340,000 HP[[/note]] and he cannot attack or do anything except stand there and take your attacks to the face.
* PowerBornOfMadness: The Ultimate Fang is said to draw its power from insanity. See DangerousForbiddenTechnique.
* ThePowerOfHate: [[spoiler:Velna, a survivor of the Fall of Kabel]], has managed to survive thousands of years thanks to this and her Origin, [[spoiler:Vestra]].
* PowerTattoo: Each Mystic has a tattoo or other discernible marking on their body that indicates the presence of the Origin inside them.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler:Velna, she was alive at the time of the fall of Kabel, through the power of her Origin Vestra.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: When [[spoiler:Rauss]] finally goes completely insane from overusing the Ultimate Fang, his eyes briefly glow bright red to signify this fact.[[note]]He is extremely dangerous in this state, with far greater attacking power until you dispel the insanity by having Lang use his ''Sleeping Dragon'' Art[[/note]]
* RelationshipValues: Lang can make four different girls in the game fall for him (two of which are in the party): Maya, Sharon, Nancy, and Phanta (yes, the bumbling female partner of the game's HarmlessVillain duo). How Lang finds out his progress in his relationships is by talking with the Fortune Teller about his love life. Unfortunately, [[spoiler: this has no real effect on the ending of the game]], though it does affect the in-game cutscenes and convos.
* RockOfLimitlessWater: The Aqualith, one of the three {{Cosmic Keystone}}s needed to manipulate the Source Forge and bring balance (or ruin) to the world.
* SdrawkcabAlias: In a scene in Tanza, Lang learns from Gyne, a former accomplice of Kazan, that Kazan's real name is Nazak, and that Kazan abandoned it years ago for unknown reasons.
* SecondHourSuperpower: Lang doesn't get the ability to use his Origin, Galea, until nearly a quarter of the way through the game.
* ShrinkingViolet: Maya appears this way for quite a while, though part of the reason is due to her being a CuteMute. Later, she arguably becomes less shy.
* SquishyWizard: Maya. She is the party's BlackMage and WhiteMage, but has about 60% of the HP of Lang or Kazan, and her defense also leaves things to be desired.
* SummonMagic: Origins.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: The BigBad, [[spoiler: Avalon]], is originally known as "Gold Eyes" in his first appearance. You later learn that [[spoiler: he, along with Lang, is a Star Shaper, one who can manipulate the Source Forge, the beacon of creation. You also learn that he wields the Supreme Origin, Igohl, which possesses nearly unlimited power.]]
* SwordBeam: The Sleeping Dragon Hyper Art is one of these, and is crucial to the fight against [[spoiler:Rauss]]. Unlike most examples of the trope, this beam is created by thrusting the sword in a piercing fashion, instead of a slashing one.
* ThenLetMeBeEvil: Torture Avalon long enough, and he'll decide to KillAllHumans.
* ThreePlusTwo: The protagonist party begins with Lang's adventuring, and Kazan and Maya join soon after to form TwoGuysAndAGirl. Only about halfway through the game do Sharon and later Ayne join the party to form the full group of five.
* TimeLimitBoss: Subverted 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.
* TotalEclipseOfThePlot: Though not an eclipse per se, bringing an end to the Black Sun[[labelnote:*]]An event in which the sun itself turns black due to the meddling of the antagonists regarding the forces governing the natural world[[/labelnote]] and the calamities it both causes and foretells is the primary driving force of the second half of the game.
* TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening: Lang only awakens his origin, Galea, after being beaten to the point of near-death by a monster living at the top of Mt. Gabel.
* {{Tsundere}}: Nancy towards Lang. She can be more on the dere dere side if you choose to be nicer, or she can be more on the tsun tsun side if you choose to be an asshole.
* UltimateBlacksmith: Subverted. Near the end of the game, the party can access The Supreme Weapon Shop and The Ultimate Armor Shop, home of world-class forgers that will sell you powerful weapons. It is subverted in that said smiths only produces [[InfinityMinusOneSword Infinity -1 class]] weapons and armors; to get the true [[InfinityPlusOneSword best equipment]], the party must take these weapons and forge them one step further using an extremely rare Heaven's Secret.
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: Nancy, if you choose not to be nice to her. Though [[spoiler: in the end she still ''is'' one, because Lang decides to go off on more adventures and not return to her]].
* UrbanSegregation: Occurs with Darakin. As one walks into the city, the first part of town is the "common" part of town, featuring the tavern, the weapon and item shops, and the houses of a few common folk. Isolated to one side of this district is a shantytown of shoddily-built one-room shacks. The back area, near the castle, is an elaborately decorated district with mansions and shops catering to the nobility. This emphasizes the degree to which the nobles believe themselves above the common folk.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: In the town of Yuno, there is a kid who is building a snowman. When he's not there, Lang can smash the snowman, causing the kid to get upset and have to rebuild it. Do so enough, and the kid will catch you doing so, giving Lang the "Bully" title.
* VillainousGlutton:
** Doplin. Doubles as Adipose Rex
** Marienne as well, who is as wide as she is tall, and a sadist to boot.
* WakeUpCallBoss[=/=]BeefGate: Elfin is cake if you're on Level 9, have four Art Blocks and [[GuideDangIt know the move to kill her with]], but she's designed to be essentially invincible before then. Getting killed by her is the game's way of saying "grind more."
** EarlyBirdBoss: A lot of the reason that she's so hard is that she's the last enforced boss that Lang has to fight solo. The HealerSignsOnEarly, but not early enough.
* WalkingTheEarth: Discussed. After defeating Bubba, he decides that he'll move forward, become a drifter, and walk the earth from then on. Subverted in that he {{lampshade|hanging}}s that he has said just enough to save face before he departs.
* WeaponOfChoice: As in the original, each party member uses a specific weapon type.
** Lang: As in the first game, HeroesPreferSwords.
** Kazan: The BareFistedMonk. He is shown to be proficient in the use of swords, but prefers to fight bare-handed to feel combat better.
** Sharon: Also uses swords. While Lang wields traditional-style broadswords, Sharon's weapons are a combination of [[RoyalRapier rapiers]] and [[KatanasAreJustBetter katanas]].
** Ayne: Wields a huge [[AnAxeToGrind axe]].
** Maya is both the WhiteMagicianGirl via her Origin, Rivas and the BlackMagicianGirl, fighting via an ancient and long-forgotten type of spellcasting.
* WhiteMagicianGirl: Maya is the primary source of healing in the game through Rivas.
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: Stiel, who, in a Hunter's Guild quest, reveals that he is a being from another world, and whose physical body cannot be destroyed in this one. Since he is in despair at the prospect of being trapped in this world forever, he qualifies.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Lang.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Doplin, after it is clear that he has been used by Velna and Avalon]], is assimilated into the fiery form of Slogar and dies a most painful death at [[spoiler:Velna's]] command.
* YouMonster: Bishop Doplin. [[spoiler: After you defeat Elliot and Marienne for the final time, the party confronts Doplin in order to obtain the [[CosmicKeystone Pyro]][[MacGuffin lith]] ]]. After he learns [[spoiler: that the duo is dead]], he remarks that he never cared about them, and was just using them for their power. The party goes ballistic on hearing this, and call him out for it.
--> [[spoiler: '''Maya:''']] I used to think that there was no such thing as a truly evil person. but... I guess I was wrong.
--> '''Kazan:''' I've never met anyone as rotten to the core... This is not a man, he's garbage.

* BaconAddiction: As you can find out for yourself, the colossal cakes that Marienne, the resident FatBastard of a woman eats on a regular basis (and which you can learn the recipe to and cook for yourself, much to the party's dismay) contain unhealthy amounts of bacon.

* LostForever:
** There are four paths that each lead to the first Mist generator, and attempting to go to the valley before you have revived three Genesis Trees in Drake Kingdom will cause a cutscene to play in a hidden area in the canyon. Each canyon contains a treasure chest, but once you have revived three Genesis Trees, these valley crossings will become inaccessible and the treasure chests therein are also forever outside your grasp.
** Any item in any of the [[spoiler:four]] Mist Generator dungeons [[spoiler: except for one in the final such dungeon]] and any item in [[spoiler:either Rogue's Tower or Noaru Valley, both in the Seru-kai]] is permanently lost once you complete the dungeon, as the area becomes inaccessible.
** There are not one, but two items that become such in the first hour of the game. When the Mist attacks Rim Elm at the beginning of the game, you can talk to the shopkeeper to get three Healing Leaves, and talking with Mei and offering to have her stay with your family during the Mist attack will cause her to give you her Pendant when you leave for Drake Castle.
