* AntiHero: Musashi, to a point. Midway through the game, he confesses that he was mostly doing his good deeds for himself, but he acquires his morals later in the game, truly becoming a MessianicArchetype.
** And he [[spoiler:falls in love with Princess Mycella, and [[FirstKiss even gets a kiss from her to boot]]]].
* ActionGirl: Istara, and to a lesser degree, Princess Mycella, though she's more of a MagicalGirl.

* HyperactiveMetabolism: Musashi's: he can eat bakery products, onigiri and various kinds of food from pasta to grilled meat in order to heal himself. There's however a variation: ice-cream replenishes the magic bar and cocktails and drinks give you an attack/defense bonus.
** Except for Pepper's deadly Five Alarm Angry Angler Hellstew, which [[FireBreathingDiner burns going down]] but affords a Strength boost.

* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:Gandrake]], once he's completely nebulized.
** Earlier, the [[ThisIsADrill Drill Golem]] turns in a different model the second time you face it. The Asura boss does a similar trick.
* PowerCopying: The Duplication process.
** It's of the [[AwesomenessByAnalysis "watch the move and instantly learn it yourself variety"]]--in fact, Musashi counters the move he's learning ''with'' the move he's learning. This leads to a good explanation as to why the moves are sometimes different--he's adapting the moves for use with his gear and, at times, biology, so a 1-to-1 match is sometimes impossible.
* PunnyName: Princess Mycella and all of the Elemental Maidens sans Istara are named for different kinds of cheese.
** Not only them, but also some of the villagers (and their pet animals) like Pecorino or Asiago. Gandrake's [[QuirkyMinibossSquad minions]] are named for kind of wines.

* TooDumbToLive: Riesling.
* {{Tsundere}}: Istara, somewhat. She's badass, a swordswoman who is on par with Musashi himself, and was the champion of the Arena for years before the events of the game. But give her a compliment on how good she looks [[spoiler:in her Maiden's outfit]] and [[LuminescentBlush she'll blush harder]] than everyone else.
** Also Fontina, indubitably. She treats Musashi with disdain at first, but warms up to him after he proves himself to her.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeButImpractical: A number of the Secret Techniques, but Musashi's regular combo finisher with his {{BFS}} is the biggest standout in the game. Yes, it does big damage and looks impressive, but it's also a ponderously slow attack that's aimed in only one direction leaves you vulnerable to flankers as you carry it out. Ending your combos with the 360 is faster, does only slightly less damage, and will protect you against surrounding foes better.


Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical: Inner Refuge. It's a Secret Technique that makes Musashi immobile and gradually drains his MP, but in exchange, he's immune to ALL kinds of damage, even those of bosses. Not the flashiest of his abilities, but it'll make tanking hard to dodge assaults a breeze.

* {{Leitmotif}}: All of the main characters have a theme song, though for the villains it's a more collective representation of them as a whole. All of the main female characters, however, have their own theme song dedicated to them. In particular, Mycella has two versions, Mirabo and Maribo's themes are two separate themes for each of them instead of one collective theme, Istara has the longest theme, and [[spoiler:Clochette]] theme only takes form after her [[spoiler:her trust identity is revealed and subsequent HeelFaceTurn]].

Added DiffLines:

* CreditsMedley: Plays through a slideshow with remixed versions of the {{Leitmotif}}s all of the Elemental Maidens, a more serious tune during the slideshow revealing [[spoiler:Rothschild's [[DragonAscendant ascension]] into the next potential BigBad and Gandrake surviving his final fight against Musashi]], all before finishing off with a flourished remix of Princess Mycella's theme.

Like its prequel, Creator/TetsuyaNomura (of ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' fame) is its main character designer (with his more angular style for this game compared to both ''Kingdom Hearts'' and ''Brave Fencer Musashi'' being reused later on for ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou''). Its main theme is composed by The Surf Coasters, and is featured in an animated opening of the game by Creator/StudioGainax. Its in-game music is composed by Creator/MasashiHamauzu and Creator/JunyaNakano, as well as Creator/TakayukiIwai and Creator/YukiIwai from ''Wavelink Zeal'' (mainly known before then for their soundtracks for several classic Creator/{{Capcom}} games).
