* BiggerBad: [[spoiler: The Dark Emperor.]]



* GottaCatchThemAll: The seven lost puppies. Not to mention all the artwork, optional licenses, secret passwords, Net TV shows, components for the [[InfinityPlusOneSword best bon bon upgrades]]... the game likes this trope.

The battle system is turn-based in design, but plays out in real time. Each attack decreasing the user's energy, which has a maximum of 100, and they must then wait until it refills to attack again. The energy bon bon is thrown using the control stick, allowing the curve and force of the throw to be aimed. The longer it's held, the stronger and faster the throw, but also the longer it takes to refill the users energy. Each fight has a time limit of about 2 minutes, with longer limits for bosses, after which time the battle will end. This is said to be due to the unusual energy system which the Tizians use in battle.

* ElementalEmbodiment: The four elemental spirits, which you rescue on your journey. They appear in battle, and you can hit them when they glow to make them cast helpful spells.

Added DiffLines:

* BonusBoss:
** Tyrant, though you can fight him surprisingly early on for a bonus boss. You have to fight a series of enemies over the course of several days in one off-the-beaten-path location in order to face him. He also drops the game's InfinityPlusOneSword when beaten. You actually ''have'' to beat him if you want maximum friendship with Mishell.
** The Beehives are this crossed with BossInMookClothing in that they're all optional to fight. When you encounter the first of them, a Ranger even specifically warns you not to mess with it until you're much stronger. However, taking it on and winning rewards you with the excellent Honey item. [[spoiler: Poleena's jaunt through the game is FULL of beehives, which not only help boost her stats, but provide valuable healing as well.]]

Added DiffLines:

* IrrelevantSidequest: Played with, as the vast majority of sidequests are actually justified by you taking on a new potential job in-game, with license level-ups representing you getting a promotion in that job. Some of them are still completely out-of-the-blue, though.

Added DiffLines:

* InventoryManagementPuzzle: Your OMP has an infinite carrying capacity (or rather, it can hold up to 99 of every item in the game). However, each of the main characters has a personal battle inventory that limits what they can take into battle, be it healing items or alternate equipment. In addition, the battle inventories don't stack, so if you want to bring 5 of the same healing item into battle with you, that's 5 spaces less you'll have for other things.


Added DiffLines:

* MenuTimeLockout: Averted in battles--your timer will still tick down and enemies will still attack you while you look through menus. Be speedy about it! You can, however, still perform an instant equipment change if you put equipment into each character's personal inventory.

* InfinityPlusOneSword: Completing the Tyrant sidequest gives you the offensive I+1 core, the Battle Core. It straight-up gives you a 15-point offense increase (whereas most other cores increase the stats which increase your offense through a complicated series of formulas). Completing the Diamond sidequest, meanwhile, gives you the Defense Core, which provides the same bonus to defense.

* InGameTV: Your OMP contains one. Depending on where in the world you are, you can catch different TV shows. [[GuideDangIt Not all are in intuitive locations.]]

** There's also the secret celebrity room in Lifeborn, which you can only access if you reach a truly staggering Fame stat. The only thing you can get there is a special license, and the only thing ''that'' does is prove that you have a lot of cash to burn. It ''does'' count towards 100% completion of your licenses, but that's about it.

* VendorTrash:
** The Y-Trees outside of Artiela [[RandomlyDrops randomly drop]] the Rafflesia, which can be sold for an impressive chunk of change. It can also be used to increase your Love stat, but it sells for far more than any other enemy drop.
** When doing the vacuuming minigame, you can sometimes find Rainbow Gems. These can be sold as-is for a small hunk of change, but there's also an NPC who will pay differing amounts for them depending on the day. Sometimes they'll sell for lots of cash with her, but sometimes they'll be almost worthless.
** The cheapest minigame in [[GoldenSaucer Artihella]] simply rewards you with Medals, small metal discs stamped with Artiella-related images. Ostentiably, the discs themselves are the reward, but the rarer ones sell for more. You can even find a secret NPC lurking about behind the stand who offers to exchange your worthless discs for actual money. (This being a sly workaround in Japan in RealLife for their gambling laws.)

* PlayerHeadquarters: You eventually receive an apartment in Lifeborn, which not only provides your main place to sleep, but also your home for your [[PreciousPuppies pets.]] However, you can get apartments/houses in just about every city you visit. Only the Lifeborn one is furnished in Opoona's [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience trademark colors,]] though.
