* MultipleEndings: Has four third-generation protagonists.

* MultipleEndings: Has four third-generation protagonists. This does not only influence the playable characters, but they also go through different plotlines and the endings are very different, though each does end with the defeat of the Dark Force:
** In Aron's ending the generation ship passes through a black hole and is transported through time and space to Earth.
** In Sean's ending the ship encounters another generation ship with identical design and receives a friendly hail.
** In Crys's ending the ship narrowly avoids being fried by flying too close to a sun, and heads towards a planet which is implied they will colonize.
** Sean's ending is identical to Crys's, except the ship avoids a black hole instead of a sun before heading towards the planet.

* BatmanGambit: Apparently everything you did in the first generation was part of a set up [[spoiler: by the people of Lashute. They wanted to restart the war, but this was impossible because of the ceasefire imposed by Orakio and Laya. They could have their second-in-commands restart the war, but both had been banished to the Alisa III's satellites, which were beyond the reach of any spaceships they had. Therefore they needed someone to bring them back into position using the satellite control system; so they kidnapped the Princess of Crille and placed her on a beach in Landen; which was a neighbor to Satera, whose royal family held the Moonstone, one of the keys necessary to make the satellite control system operate. Maia, the princess of Cille, was the cousin of Lyle, the prince of Shushoran whose royal family happened to have the Moon Tear, the other key needed to work the satellite control system. Then Lyle kidnapped Maia back and returned her to Cille, which just happened to be separated from Shushoran by a narrow strait which would turn into a land bridge if influenced by the two moons, if they were back in their original positions. Note that Lyle could have, at any time, turned into a dragon and flew the party to Cille, but instead they went with pretty much the most complicated solution of all, which is what the people of Lashute wanted. Wouldn't it have been easier for them to just kidnap Lena and Lyle (or blackmail them) and have them bring the satellites back for them?]]

[[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything The game will outright tell you that you need to reset now.]] Mercifully, this is right at the beginning of the game. It also counts as UnwinnableByInsanity, since the only way to get an Escapipe at this point is by selling all of your starting equipment.

''Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom'' [[FakeOutOpening seems to be a radical departure]] from the first two ''PhantasyStar'' games at first; it doesn't even take place in the Algol system (although for good reason). It begins with the story of Rhys, a young prince of the Orakians, who is preparing to marry Maia, a girl from the rival Layans. When Maia is kidnapped, it sets events in motion that span generations. ''PSIII'' starts off as a classic MedievalEuropeanFantasy, but the appearances of androids and obviously high-tech "caves" quickly clue them in to the fact that things are not as they seem. The game features a unique twist: at the end of Rhys' adventure, he is given a choice of [[LoveTriangle two girls to marry]]. Depending on his choice, the game then ''continues'' through the eyes of the resulting child. This child's own story will then play out, again with a choice of whom to marry. This final child will play out the final act of the story.

* DynamicDifficulty: Depending on who your third-generation protagonist ends up being, gameplay can have a difference of several hours. [[spoiler:To wit, Aron has the shortest campaign, since he starts on Dahlia and with Laya's Pendant and Kara in the party. Adan and Crys both start from Landen, but Crys has a bit more world-trekking to do to fetch Laya and the Pendant. Sean's route makes the game its absolute longest.]]
