* DifficultyByRegion:
** The western version of the original game reducd the number of credits available in Easy and Normal Mode, added more enemies in Stage 2 and jacked up the health of the giant sandworms at the end of stage 2 to such an high level it is essentially impossible to kill them both and thus get a 100% shot down ratio for the stage.

* GoodBadTranslation: Pandra's Box, an bonus mode unlocked after beating the game in ''Zwei'' and ''Saga'', is also a common Japanese mistranslation of "PandorasBox", but many fans believed it was a play on the phrase using the game's title ('''''Pan'''zer '''Dra'''goon''). Sega corrected it in ''Orta'' and the Sega Ages version of the first game, and some fans would've preferred they hadn't.

The game was praised for its very unique art direction, eclectic soundtrack, interesting combat engine (for an RPG, mind you), engaging story, and gameplay that managed to avoid many (although not all) of [[TheGrandListOfConsoleRolePlayingGameCliches the more common RPG tropes]]. It also expanded the mutation concept from ''Zwei'' to allow real-time transformations of Edge's dragon. Four stats were separated into two inversely-related pairs, and allowed the player to boost one of each pair while making the deficiencies in the other more pronounced (Attack boosts the power of the dragon's HomingLasers, while Spiritual increase damage of special attacks; Defense decreases the amount of damage taken and Agility allows the Active Time Battle-like gauge to charge faster and dodge faster).\\

* BonusMaterial: "Pandra's Box" (mistranslated from "''PandorasBox''") in ''Zwei'', aside from NewGamePlus, allows players to unlock early footage of the game. After ''Saga'' is beaten, Box Game is unlocked which contains minigames. ''Orta'' (which properly translated it as "Pandora's Box") takes the cake with an encyclopedia of the game's world, artwork from the whole series, minigames, [[AnotherSideAnotherStory Iva's story]], and [[EmbeddedPrecursor the first game]]. The UsefulNotes/Playstation2 version of ''Panzer Dragoon'' includes an image gallery and an interview with the original game's director.

* CoolAirship: Shelcoof; the Empire has tons of these as well, like the Grig Orig and the Vermana. Orta faces off against their largest in the fourth episode of her game.



* EvilIsNotAToy: The Empire has gained almost unrivaled power by harnessing the power of the Ancients' lost technology, believing it's theirs to control. Said technology also goes out of control and ends up destroying them at least once per game.

* RecurringBoss:
** The Atolm Dragon in ''Saga'', considering its rider is Azel, TheRival.
** [[spoiler: The Guardian Dragon, the FinalBoss in ''Zwei'', returns in ''Saga'' when the Empire invades what's left of Shelcoof]].
** The Grig Orig in ''Saga''. Edge first faces it after [[spoiler: the Empire destroys Zoah, and again after the creatures from the Tower take it over]].
** The Vermana, the first boss in ''Orta'', is fought again in the Imperial Base.



* TrueFinalBoss: In ''Zwei'', the second phase of the final boss, [[spoiler: the Dark Dragon in its normal form]], can only be fought if the game is beaten with a high percentage rate or is on hard difficulty and above.

* WasItReallyWorthIt: Once he's defeated, Zastava asks Edge if his revenge was worth it, before pleading with him to work together with Craymen. Edge doesn't respond, so we never know.

* EmotionlessGirl: Azel, being a Drone, does very little emoting over the course of ''Saga'', acting very calm and collected.



* FusionDance: [[spoiler:Unlocking the Solo Wing form in ''Saga'' involves merging Edge's dragon with a pup they had found earlier in the quest.]]

* VideoGameCaringPotential: Edge can bond with his dragon whenever he makes camp, as well as name him. Becoming especially close might inspire the dragon to learn a new Berserk Attack.
