* ShootTheMedicFirst: [[spoiler: Ariel]] combines this trope with DangerouslyGenreSavvy by attacking the dungeon fairy attempting to give the heroes an option to heal and save during their fight. [[spoiler: The Fairy survived, and was given an honorable delicacy for this.]]

* HistoricalVillainUpdate: {{Downplayed}} In-universe example. While General Lysander was the BigBad of ''Clean Slate'', Cade's comments during a lesson about him suggest that the people mostly remember his violent actions and regard him as nothing more than a bloodthirsty general. ''Clean Slate'''s LetsPlay reveals that, while he was a devoted follower of [[FinalSolution Gallia's genocidal teachings against non-humans and slaughtered many innocents]], he was a more complex person. Lysander was also a [[EvenEvilHaveLovedOnes loving husband and father]], and a deeply loyal soldier ready to die to protect the citizens of his country. [[VillainousValour He willingly chose to fight (and maybe die) during the last battle, while knowing that he would have lived if he ran away, because he wanted to protect his people]]. In the end, confronted by Arius, he admitted that he may have been wrong about Aracadius' teachings and seemed to regret his bad treatment of his sister.

* HeelFaceTurn: A few. In the backstory, some of Gallia's high-ranking officials that still play a minor role in the game (like Tor and Evander). In the game proper, there are [[spoiler:Gabriella, Rana, the [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashed elemental mages]], Don Kovak and Vec]]. [[spoiler:Andau]] combines it with RedemptionEqualsDeath.

* AnticlimaxBoss: [[spoiler:Cleon]], surprisingly enough. The story makes him up to be quite the foe, and he could have been if he'd been fought with a one or two man party like many other bosses, but instead he had the misfortune of fighting [[spoiler:Valkyrie]] who flatly ignores his signature ability. If you even have to heal once during this battle it's because the mooks beforehand left you injured. (Of course he gets another go at it soon after).
** Also [[spoiler:Cari]], especially given what comes immediately before and after, but that was a given considering her powerset and role in the story.
** His attacks are pretty devastating, but the final boss battle with [[spoiler:Ketsu]] is ''much'' shorter than the battle immediately before against [[spoiler:Ariel]], and you get a full heal and an EleventhHourSuperpower buff partway in.

* BagOfSpilling: An in-story [[JustifiedTrope justified]] example: Why does Stoic start at level 1 when he has almost a millenium of experience? [[spoiler:He forgot how to fight after spending four-hundred years sealed in a cave.]]

* GodIsEvil: Arcadius may or may not be, depending on whether or not the Hand really represents his wishes. Laurel has a crisis of faith over an event which appears to suggest that they do. [[spoiler: Later, she recieves the same blessing as Dasani and Ketsu,]] and Solik implies [[spoiler: it to be the light-equivalent to a necromancer's transformation to a lich]].

** And she appears soon after ''another'' marathon boss battle with the three lieutnants (you have to defeat three boss-worthy opponents, [[spoiler:then use a single-target move of one party member on each of half a dozen illusions, then beat all three bosses ''again'' only this time they have their signature abilities]]. And when I say "soon after", I mean that the only thing inbetween is ''another boss battle'' (sort of).

* NoSell: Cleon has a special ability to completely negate any attack against him [[spoiler:though not twice in a row]], making him a serious threat. [[spoiler:But the trope is turned on him when Valkyrie can completely ignore this ability and you can easily win the first boss fight with him by spamming your cheapest attack until he dies.]].

* TechnoBabble: Pikc has a habit of teaching others like they're in a classroom. In two scenes where the Touten Corps are in focus, we cut to Pilc explaining some long winded, scientific idea to his fellow members. By the time he's done, they both still scratching their heads to make sense of his gibberish, and wondering why they need to learn what he's talking about anyway.

* TragicVillain: [[spoiler: Leonard, the adopted son of Arius and Nova. Realizing that his real father is General Lysander, he left on a journey to discover more of his origins. When he met Cari and her mother, he was slowly but gradually [[MindRape mind-raped]] into staying, and then believing himself to be her overzealous son Ketsu. He was willing to bring back the old Gallian regime, which Cari and their "mother" want. When his real family sees him again, Ketsu's genuinely upset and enraged to be called "Leonard".]] Interestingly enough, when Cari reveals this backstory, [[spoiler: she plays it off as sympathy for her and her mother, who was losing her mind powers. They came back miraculously when Leonard was about to leave, which she used to turn him into Ketsu. They suffered when Gallia lost the war, and "recovered" when Ketsu joined the family.]] The heroes aren't moved, as they quickly point out that [[MoralMyopia her suffering is more important than anyone else's]] in her mind.
