* 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.

* AdultFear: As shown with both Noa's and Vahn's parents, the Mist can completely remove any ability you have to protect your child. [[spoiler: Or a Rogue Seru can come along and attach itself to your child, possessing and slowly transforming him into a genocidal megalomaniac right beneath your nose.]] As you begin awakening the Genesis Trees and reviving towns, many children who survived have lost their parents to the Mist and are now orphans in a world that's pretty much been thrown back into the Stone Age. It's also mentioned that one of the main reasons why Gaza became an AxCrazy BloodKnight was because he was helpless to save his son and grandchildren from being killed by Seru.

* 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. Adding to the aversion, Gala also has the highest magic Stat of the party by default.

* YouShallNotPass: If you talk to Dr. Usha's scientists, they'll tell you that a mysterious mountain range appeared in the far north only weeks before the Mist arrived outside the tower. You later learn that [[spoiler: Cort]] and his minions were behind this, effectively isolating Conkram and its people from the outside world.

** There's also Gaza, a mighty swordsman. After being defeated by the party, he is taken away by Songi, one of the main antagonists. Later, Gaza shows up again, this time under the control of Sim-Seru. He turns into a monster, which the party has to defeat. Gaza is injured fatally, but he makes a noble sacrifice to save his town in his last breath.

* AlwaysCheckBehindTheChair: Quite a few items can be found hidden in bookcases, vases, and the occasional barrel.



* BadassGrandpa: Gaza is one of these. [[AllThereInTheManual 61]] during the game, a feared warrior deemed nigh unstoppable by [[spoiler:soldiers in Conkram when you [[TimeTravel travel back in time]] 10 years]], and by far the strongest being in the game who isn't wearing a Seru[[note]]Or is one, in the case of Rogue or [[{{God}} Tieg]][[/note]]. As such, he doubles as a BadassNormal when compared to wearers of Seru.

* BrokenBridge: A giant chasm stands before the front gates of Ratayu, preventing people from entering or leaving the city. Thanks to their Ra-Seru, [[TheChosenOne the heroes can jump right over it]] once the Sebucus Islands' volcanism is dealt with, but that probably doesn't apply to Legaia's normal citizens.



%%* EncounterRepellant: The Good Luck Bell and Evil Talisman serve as repellent, while the Bad Luck Bell and Nemesis Gem are bait.

* GoodParents: All of the main characters' have loving parents. Vahn's father is always saying how proud of him he is, and it's mentioned several times that the deceased Nora loved him a great deal as well. Noa's [[spoiler: mother and father love her so much that they're able to resist the Mist to communicate with her]] and despite being deceased, Gala never says a bad word about his parents. Zalan also has an affectionate relationship with Pepe, who he had been separated from for over ten years, and the Soren leader Cructes is shown to love both of his sons, including a banished Grantes.

** 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.

* SecondHourSuperpower:
** None of your characters starts with their Ra-Seru when they first join your party. Once that character does join with their Ra-Seru, their ATK shoots up, and they get access to magic.
** In ''Duel Saga'', Lang doesn't get the ability to use his Origin, Galea, until nearly a quarter of the way through the game.

* 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.
