* {{Homage}} -- To {{Myst}}: Both games take place on an island and both have objects that take you to different locations. [[spoiler: Even the fireplace which played a role in one puzzle acted as a doorway]]

* ChestMonster -- Both Subverted and played straight. In the Children's World, the Mimics in the basement are quite peaceful and neutral, even one offers to heal you midway through the laboratory as it has got covered in a healing potion on accident giving it properties akin to a healing spring. In the Giant's World, you do have to fight 2 of them at once at the start of the sand maze.
* CloneArmy -- [[spoiler: The Current "Ancients" are clones of the original ancients who were wiped out. Whether or not they are directly cloned from Kuga/Ancient One is left up to speculation]]

* {{Homage}} -- To {{Myst}}. Both games use objects that take you to different locations. One large exception is that the objects in Mystic Ark are completely different from books and just by either touching them or getting close to them pulls you into those worlds.

* FanTranslation -- There are two out there, but the one generally most preferred is [[http://www.romhacking.net/trans/1428/ Dynamic Designs']] due to the fact that it allows for more characters (meaning that item names and dialogue are not truncated or abbreviated).
* ForcedLevelGrinding -- Shockingly averted, considering its predecessor. The game even goes so far as to allow any figurines you're carrying to level up along with you, no Ark infusion required.
** To be fair, much of the predecessor's reputation for LevelGrinding was due to a botched job of DifficultyByRegion.

* NoodleIncident -- Whatever it was that started the longstanding feud between the crews of the Bloodhook and the Gunboss. It's a Noodle Incident because no-one actually remembers after all the centuries of fighting. Except perhaps Matoya, and she's not telling.

The only thing that can be inferred is that it was over the Power Ark.

* HubLevel -- The Island.



* UrbanLegendOfZelda -- It was long held up as an actual sequel to ''The 7th Saga'' rather than a mere SpiritualSuccessor... until someone finally started work on translating the game and discovered right off the bat that their stories are entirely unrelated.

The SpiritualSuccessor game to Enix's [[NintendoHard infamously difficult]] RPG ''{{The 7th Saga}}'', released in 1995. Released only in Japan, ''Mystic Ark'' is both similar to and different from its predecessor at the same time. Though retaining the GPS-map and combat system as well as a similar art style, the overworld gameplay is very puzzle-oriented and almost like a PointAndClickGame.

* WholePlotReference: To ''MakaiToshiSaGa'' (aka ''Final Fantasy Legend''), right down to the GainaxEnding. The difference is that the Goddess is treated as well-intentioned, unlike the Creator, and the Hero chooses to go through the final door instead of rejecting it.

* GameFavoredGender -- Ferris has slightly lower speed and power than Remeer, although higher magic. The two also have slightly different spell sets.
** Ironically enough, Reeshine's attack power blows Remeer's out of the water despite her also being female.
*** May have something to do with the fact that Reeshine is a grappler. Physical prowess is all she has going for her.
