* ObstructiveBureaucrat: The head priest at Gumbious Temple won't let the heroes borrow the Eclipse Torch for no other reason than because it's the Eclipse Torch, and it belongs in the temple. He maintains this, even though they've been literally sent by ''Lutz himself'', to get it and the task at hand is the eradication of the most famous evil adversary in Algo's history and mythology, which is, at that very moment, causing about three different types of apocalypses ''at once''.

The tech for the game did require a very expensive cart. The game was first sold at ''double'' the average for games at the time. Fortunately, the game has since been released on several compilations, and is available on the UsefulNotes/VirtualConsole, each at a fraction of that price.

** Saya's kindergarten has cute storybooks. One of them, Chaz notes, is a ''picture'' book called "The Bare Queen".

* HaveYouSeenMyGod: [[spoiler: The Great Light went away after creating the Algol system to imprison the Profound Darkness, leaving Algol's defenses more or less on autopilot.]]

* PsychicPowers: It's subtle, but fairly common. Several party members (particularly Rune, Rika, and Raja) have some degree of sensitivity where the Black Wave is concerned. It may actually extend to the Parmanian race as a whole, as several NPCs will mention having a bad feeling or a premonition that later turns out to be referring to a legitimate threat, particularly when a loved one is endangered.

* AIIsACrapshoot: Played straight only with Daughter, [[spoiler:a PsychoPrototype A.I. that was abandoned mid-development.]] [=SeeD=], Demi and Wren avert this trope by being dependable caretakers capable of sound ethical judgement.

* LightIsNotGood: [[spoiler: The Great Light is an EldritchAbomination adhering to BlueAndOrangeMorality. As far as it's concerned, humans are just part of the padlock on the Profound Darkness' prison, and to the extent that it's helping the party, it's because its interests and theirs are aligned. Chaz eventually returns the favor; he's not fighting for the Light, he's fighting for humanity and the other Protectors.]]

* LostForever: Make sure you do the last Hunter's Guild mission before making your second visit to Esper Mansion and [[spoiler:getting Elsydeon]]. If you don't, you'll be barred from [[spoiler:Vahal Fortress]], preventing the acquisition of Wren's most powerful gun and skill.
** The Swift-Helm can only be found in [[spoiler: the Air Castle]], which gets destroyed after you finish it. It's one of few armor pieces that increases agility and very handy, especially if you manage to hang onto it for [[spoiler: Gryz]] at the end.
** The Climatrol center on Dezolis is home to a couple of lucrative boss fights [[spoiler: if you face them before you finish the Garuberk arc.]] After that, all the loot will still be there, but the bosses and their accompanying scenes won't be.
** Most of the major dungeons that suffer from LoadBearingBoss have unique items that are lost with them; the Garuberk Tower has a Moon Slasher in one of its treasure chests that is likely to be the only one you ever find, unless you grind the random-encounter enemies that have a low chance of dropping another, who are ''also'' lost when the Tower is no longer available.



** Rune, however, implied that Alys was always fighting for more than just money, so maybe she would have helped anyway if Hahn had stood up to her instead of forking over the cash immediately.
