Added DiffLines:

* BattleBaton: Wand-type weapons are based on batons (with one tier of weapons explicitly called Baton). Their animation tends to be a bit spinnier than most weapons.

* ApocalypticLog: In ''Phantasy Star Online'', Red Ring Rico's log goes from helpful tutorial to an increasingly depressing ApocalypticLog as the game progresses. Heathcliff Flowen pens his own in ''Episode II''.


Added DiffLines:

* AntidoteEffect: Zig-Zagged. Antidotes are more or less useless, since poison deals little damage, is generally easy to avoid, and all characters either gain access to a tech that heals it at Tech Level 1 almost immediately, or are just flat-out immune to poison. However, Antiparalysis and Sol Atomizers can be a bit more useful, as they can heal Paralysis and, in the case of the latter, Shock - two status effects which can be crippling and which cannot otherwise be self-healed. However, high level characters often get access to Cure/Status armour slots, which render that character immune to certain status effects.
** This also tends to be true of healing items. Aside from Androids (which cannot cast Techs), all characters quickly gain access to Resta, which can be used far more readily than healing items and costs almost no money to recharge. However, at high levels, Trimates and Star Atomizers remain useful for the fact that they heal instantly and cannot be cancelled by an enemy attack; although the casting time for Resta is very short, it does exist and if the player is surrounded, healing items can prove to be the difference between life and death.

Added DiffLines:

* KaizoTrap: Beating the Dragon at the end of the Forest stages is quite a difficult, but very rewarding, accomplishment for new players. This accomplishment can be quickly undone by having the dragon fall on you and kill you in the victory cutscene, when the camera pans away from the players (which makes it difficult to see where your character is in relation to the dying dragon). Reviving fallen allies is rarely possible, as revive items are relatively rare and expensive at this point in the game, making this an incredibly frustrating experience - even moreso in single player mode.

* WasOnceAMan: [[spoiler:Part of Rico's human body can still be seen as fused into Dark Falz's first two forms, [[PainfulTransformation horribly mutated and writhing in pain]]. You can still see Rico's red ring]] on one of the arms if you look closely. As for Flowen, we get an idea of what happened to him thanks to ''Episode 2's'' [[ApocalypticLog Apocalyptic Logs]]. One tidbit of NightmareFuel: We learn that the mutation begins as the wounds inflicted on Flowen by Dark Falz's infant form shift and change shape ...]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheCorruption: D-cells, the "virus" created by Dark Falz. It corrupts anything it infects - including animals, people, and even machines and computer systems - and turns them into hyper-violent monsters in thrall to Falz. It's even hinted to be responsible for the destruction of the planet Coral before the game begins, as the planet began to die shortly after a meteor containing D-cells crashed onto the planet (seemingly launched from Ragol).

Added DiffLines:

* BlindIdiotTranslation: Zig-zagged. Most of the original game has an acceptable translation, though there are some sketchy parts and the game was quite clearly written in a different language. However, once you go online, you'll find plenty of quests rife with obvious grammar errors, poorly stated directions, and clues that were meant to be cryptic but are just flat-out useless thanks to how nonsensical they are.

* InfinityMinusOneSword: There's a number of them. The Red Sword and the Black King Bar are probably the most widespread. The Black King Bar is particularly notable in that it's oftentimes statistically better than its InfinityPlusOneSword equivalent (the Double Cannon).
