** Everyone always pulls up the menu when moving between rooms as a protection from traps. Even when they're traversing an already-completed area where there are no traps. ''Even if they're playing an android who can see the traps in advance.''
** Everyone with a melee weapon will run up and start slashing the dragon's corpse after it dies, even though it does nothing.

* EasyModeMockery: Zigzagged. Playing on Normal for episodes 1 and 2 will cause you to miss certain things in the final bosses and in the case of episode 1 will net you a slightly more pessmestic ending, but you can't actually choose to play on Hard until you beat the game on Normal or, in the case of multiplayer, reach a certain level. [[spoiler: In episode 1 you will can only fight the Dark Falz's holy form on hard and above, and defeating it will set Rico's spirit free. If fought on Normal the Falz will just keel over in its second form and her signature red ring will fall to the ground in a tragic fashion. With the Olga Flow he will not use his special attack that turns you into Flowen.]]

*CherryTapping: So long as you can do at least [[DeathByAThousandcuts one point of damage]] to an enemy, you can kill it. A viable strategy when being slightly underleveled for an area is to pop in the door, fire a few shots at an enemy and then back out before they can reach you. Repeat until room is cleared and EXP is obtained.

* ArtEvolution: ''PSO'' brought with it a major shift in the art style for the PhantasyStar series; the games of the tetralogy tended more toward a generic anime style evocative of [[TheEighties the late Eighties]] and [[TheNineties early Nineties]], not counting the ''Generations'' remakes.

''Episode III'' was a MMOCCG ([[MassivelyMultiplayerOnlineRolePlayingGame Massively Multiplayer Online]] CollectibleCardGame), using cards that had powers of many of the previous two games' monsters and weapons.

** Not completely nameless, as you you can see her name if you open your chat window. Of course, there's no reason to do that on an offline quest, unless you really want to know the names of the NPCs.
