* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: Deep under Cerulean Beach do you encounter not mermaids, but... mermen? Anyway, these mermen, or Oxygen Machines, supply your party with oxygen, when you kiss him them that is. [[BlushSticker Pucker up!]]



* ParentalNeglect: Flint to Lucas, unintentionally so. He's so desperate to find his older son, Claus, that he barely comes home to look after his other one. [[spoiler:Subverted at the end when he takes two deadly hits to protect Lucas from Calus' blows, showing that he does care for him as much.]]

* PuttingOnTheReich: The Pigmask's uniforms are reminiscent of German uniforms during WWII. Even their {{s|trangeSalute}}alutes are vaguely Nazi-ish.
* PuzzleBoss: The PostFinalBoss [[spoiler:cannot be attacked. You have to constantly heal and defend until the battle wins itself. After Hinawa talks to you a few times, you can attack him. But it won't make any difference because he will not die.]]

* UnknownItemIdentification: A downplayed, and [[ToiletHumor rather bizarre]], example: whenever you give Wan Sum Dung some dung, he may randomly announce that the particular dung is "excuisitely-aged" or, in rare cases, "legendary", and proceeds to give you more experience than usual in exchange (10 EXP for the former, 50 EXP for the latter).

* YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm: In series tradition, the FinalBoss, (though this time, it's [[spoiler:Porky]]) uses this for all attacks. Unlike before, there are different phrases for different attack, and one attack (PSI Counter) is comprehensible.

** Duster's weapons are ''shoes'' and he attacks by kicking. His disability is a [[IncrediblyLamePun club foot]], yet he is not hindered by his crippled leg because that is how god-tier {{Badass}} he is.
