* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer - London's sewer systems were never quite THAT large. It even has the obligatory [[RodentsOfUnusualSize giant rats]] for you to slay as your introductory quest.
* AdventurerArchaeologist - An entire ''society'' of them, arguably. Certainly enough to make an entire ''group'', the Royal Exploration Agency.
* AristocratsAreEvil almost ''totally'' averted - and even the one wealthy character that could be seen as an antagonist is a WellIntentionedExtremist.

* {{Atlantis}} - The real one, along with Mu and Lemuria, are available as optional sidequest dungeons.
* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore - In the Japanese art, seen above, Eddie is standing on a field seeing a zeppelin flying in the air. In [[http://www.infendo.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/nostalgia-fob-495x433.jpg the American boxart]] we see the player party doing battle poses.
* AndYourRewardIsClothes - Beating the two most difficult {{Bonus Boss}}es nets you Melody and Fiona's ultimate armor, which are a [[HornyDevils Disgaea-esque demon-tail, horns, and fluffy nightie]] and [[BattleBikini angel-winged bikini]], respectively.
* AwesomeButImpractical - The CombinationAttack skills each character gets as the plot unfolds. Sure, they're the strongest single attacks in the game and they hit every enemy on the field, but they also cost roughly 50 MP when few skills in the game crest the 20 MP mark and an endgame party won't have more than 300 maximum MP per character.

* BoringButPractical - See also GameBreaker below. Combo Attack, when fully powered up, consists of six full-powered normal attacks, complete with overly flashy [[JumpCut jump]] [[IncrediblyLamePun cuts]].
* BalancingDeathsBooks - [[spoiler: In order to save Fiona from her [[HeroicSacrifice Heroic Sacrifice]] at the end of the game, Eddie, Pad, and Melody each give up a third of their own lifespan so that the [[DeusExMachina Ancient Father]] can revive her.]]

* FantasyWorldMap - Averted. The World Map in Nostalgia is an abridged AlternateHistory of Earth's. [[ArtisticLicenseGeography The creators take a few liberties]] with some locations though.
** Doubles as a ShownTheirWork - later in the game you gain the ability to find World Treasures - similar to the "Discoveries" in ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'' - and many of them are based directly on real-life landmarks... and are shockingly accurate in placement. It's the one instance where Google Maps actually functions fairly well as an impromptu guide. [[GuideDangIt Which is helpful, since the NPCs that tell you about them are painfully vague in their locations.]]

* LostForever: Averted with items/treasure chests, but played straight with maps on two dungeons (which change layouts after their LoadBearingBoss is destroyed) and with certain enemies in one segment later in the game. Only a problem if you're looking for OneHundredPercentCompletion.
* MacGuffinDeliveryService: It couldn't ''be'' more blatant that [[spoiler:the [[PlotCoupon tablet fragments]] you're handing to the Royal Exploration Agency will end up in the wrong hands.]]
** On top of that, there's also [[spoiler:Fiona herself, who voluntarily goes BACK to the Tower of Babel after Gilbert rescues her from it in the prologue.]]

* {{Expy}} - Intentionally invoked with Gilbert Brown, a definite Expy of IndianaJones (complete with FedoraOfAsskicking). May or may not have been intentional with his son. [[OverusedCopycatCharacter Red full-length coat, arguably British, blonde-haired teen named Edward]]? [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Not familiar at all, nosiree.]] Melody also looks a lot like [[{{LightNovel/Slayers}} Lina]], and likes throwing fire around.
