** Speaking of, the [[http://www.lunar-net.com/tss/screens/3/images/LUNAR_216.jpg balloon crash]] is particularly bad about this - even allowing for the goofiness of the scene, it's ''filled'' with coloring errors that aren't even consistent with other parts of the game or other anime sequences. Also, the game artists gave Jessica white frilly bloomers, which she doesn't wear in any of the remakes and which no other female character in the game wears.

Mia's sheltered upbringing makes her nervous around strangers, and she's unsure she has what it takes to fill her mother's shoes. [[HiddenDepths She learns she's a lot tougher than she imagined she was.]]
* SinsOfOurFathers: The Vile Tribe.Tribe was banished to a wasteland generations ago, and now they view fighting "Althena's children" as a fight for their own survival.

* BrotherSisterIncest: Whoof. All versions of ''Silver Star'' are a classic example of this being played ''perfectly straight'', to the [[{{Squick}} disquiet]] of many. Alex and Luna are [[NotBloodSiblings not even remotely related]], sure (what with Luna [[spoiler:being an ''incarnated divinity'' and all]]), but the game makes explicit the fact that they've been raised together since they were ''infants''. Apparently the writers don't think [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imprinting_%28psychology%29#Westermarck_effect the Westermarck effect]] should kick in, for some reason. This is one of the few real points of contention on the game's quality these days.

* CovertPervert: Ramus, debatably. He has a rather large number of bromides of females...
* CrutchCharacter: Laike late in the game.

saucy pictures featuring cute girls...
* CrutchCharacter: Laike Laike, whenever he tags along. Particularly notable in that he doesn't lose his edge over the hero late in the game.



* DamselInDistress: Luna fulfills this trope to a T.

to:

* DamselInDistress: Luna fulfills is the number one example, since spends half the game in captivity and only the hero can free her. Mia and Jessica, otherwise very capable girls, fall victim to this trope to a T.when they contract an illness in Pao. None of the boys are effected.



* DoubleEntendre: Among the primary reasons the PSX is so beloved, is for the sheer amount of these.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The Magic Emperor. [[spoiler:It helps that he's seen all this before, from the other side. He knows how heroes think.]]



* GenreBlindness: The main cast, when they initially meet him, have not the slightest hint of an idea that [[spoiler: Ghaleon]] is [[ObviouslyEvil eviler than evil]], despite all the pretty silver hair and evil eyes and such. Obviously, this puts them at a disadvantage against a DangerouslyGenreSavvy enemy. Amusingly, as ''Lunar: The Silver Star'' was one of the first [=JRPGs=] where characters were represented by more than just small blocky sprites to land in the West, a lot of people actually fell for it.

Added DiffLines:

* SparedByTheAdaptation: In the Sega CD version, [[spoiler: Ghaleon murders Quark, the Red and Blue dragons are apparently DeadAllAlong, and the party accidentally kills the Black Dragon themselves. In ''Silver Star Story'', Ghaleon instead captures all four dragons alive and uses them to power the Grindery]].

* ''Lunar: Silver Star Story'' for the UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn and its updated re-release for the PlayStation. Working Designs localized the the [=PlayStation=] version as ''Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete''. It had a [[UsefulNotes/IBMPersonalComputer Windows PC]] port, but unfortunately [[NoExportForYou it never left Japan (or South Korea)]] due to technical problems during the localization process.

* DistressedDude: Nash ends up as this on two occasions: first in his introduction when he's caught in a trap [WhatAnIdiot he fell for], and second when the Magic Masher suit he dons in the Frontier begins acting on its own and Alex and the others have to break him out of it.
