** The battle balance is a little... weird. [[spoiler: Attacks in the early game barely hurt enemies, but then after the tenth epic weapon, and after beating enemies with magic, it's not really so.]] ForMassiveDamage is also a big part of this.

* ICallItVera: Lilith has a giant rock called Christina. This also counts as a ShoutOut to Thadius from SlightlyDamned.

An amateur RPGMaker game posted on [[http://rpgmaker.net/games/1760/ Rpgmaker.net]]. The basic premise involves a spunky, tomboyish beggar girl, who is called on a MissionFromGod to save the world by restoring balance... or something. Also, an evil demon is threatening the world and needs to be stopped. Along the way she meets [[FiveTokenBand an assorted group of characters]] starting with her potential love interest, an [[WholesomeCrossdresser effeminate]] swordsman. Beyond the initial story however, there are numerous side tales that can be gleaned from romantic sidequests, and some random [[BlackComedy dark humor]] by exploring the world. Not to mention some hints about the nature of the hero herself, and the nature of the world.

* LostForever: The Crystal Trophy is the [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII Zodiac Spear]] of ''Oracle of Tao''. You have to complete the game without saving, and you have to make the good ending. Unless you're in the top tier of players, and can pull this off, you're unlikely to manage this, and by the EndgamePlus, it's already been awarded if you had it.



* [[spoiler: MyOwnGrampa: Ambrosia is an [[GodInHumanForm incarnation of God]], and God married her mother to make her. So she's her own "father." ]]

* OurMonstersAreDifferent.
** OurAngelsAreDifferent: There are two type of angels, the modern {{WingedHumanoid}}s, and the older {{EldritchAbomination}}s model. This is actually justified, explaining that traditionally angels ''were'' all like the EldritchAbomination mentioning this story, but because humans have a [[AllMenArePerverts great tendency for interspecies relationships]], current angels are actually a watered-down breed.
** OurDemonsAreDifferent: Demons are supposedly the same initial breed as angels, just more inclined toward evil. They've somehow bred differently than angels, becoming more the HornyDevils variety, those there are several subspecies of demons. [[spoiler: Children of angels and demons appear human.]]
** OurDragonsAreDifferent: Everything from Eastern, to Western, to Dungeons & Dragons style chrmoatic, metal, and jewel dragons.
** OurElvesAreBetter: Elves are essentially human, but even half-elves have abnormal lifespans and centuries of youth.
** OurGhoulsAreCreepier: The idea was based from the movie [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1069228/ Ghouls]]. They keep coming back, unless somehow sealed away, and come from another dimension.
** OurMermaidsAreDifferent: Everything from merfolk, to water elementals, to sirens.
** OurMonstersAreWeird: You fight everything from Elder Gods, to robots, to Stonehenge. Super-cute anime style sirens, ShoutOut enemies, and truly freakish monsters populate the game.
** OurVampiresAreDifferent: Vampires are subject to silver and holy effects, and vampire lords can only be killed by destroying their coffin. Vampires protect one of the towns, in exchange for their food. Stakes are never mentioned, and vampires actually like garlic. Vampires are more like some wild beast than true undead, and can probably mate.
** OurZombiesAreDifferent: There are three types, conventional (undead), diseased zombies (which can best be killed by wounding their brains), and Thriller zombies (ShoutOut to Music/MichaelJackson).

* DemocracyIsBad: The current Earth is run by a group dedicated to [[LogicBomb organized anarchy]]. That is, a [[OneWorldOrder world government]] is set up, ''[[NoExceptYes in order to ensure cities cannot form large governments and oppress people]]''.

* ChandlersLaw: Creator/RaymondChandler actually appears as a [[PeopleJars preserved holograph]] in a futuristic town, partially explains the trope [[InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja (with ninjas dramatically popping up, walking up to the hero and attacking, and disappearing before anyone can figure out what's going on)]].

Added DiffLines:

* TheMeaningOfLife: The meaning of life is defined twice. First, it's defined as bonds to nature, family, and love (but this is part of some religion). And then later, someone asks as a test what the meaning of life truly is. The answerer basically says that it's a self-defining question (as in the meaning of life is "the meaning of life", that is to say what life means to you is the meaning of life, making it a personal question).

** [[spoiler: Even the best ending makes no sense, as it turns out the main hero was [[GodInHumanForm God]] all along (she's told this by God), and now has the choice while sitting in a WhiteVoidRoom on whether to create the universe or not (and she can definitely choose to just become God and sit by herself for all eternity). What?!? ItGetsBetter, though.]]
