Added DiffLines:

* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: Averted. Most of Theater Vancoor's members wear helmets that completely cover their face, with you only able to see their faces in their bios, though many of the knights' faces are obscured even without their helmets. And Jack himself can get a couple armors that have helmets, though most do not.

** Cross, the most arrogant and insubordinate of the knights, leads the Noire Mouton brigade, which is French for 'black sheep'.

* LethalJokeCharacter: While there's likely a few more, Franz, the hammy dark elf who challenges Gil, arguably has the only attack that knocks the Ethereal Queen off her feet. He's also quite fast and does notable damage for such a minor character.

Added DiffLines:

* FirstLawOfTragicomedies: The game starts out very goofy and remains so for most of its running time, with serious moments scattered around. However, as both paths near their end, the comedy dies out and the story gets very serious, and the game ends with [[spoiler: either a BittersweetEnding or DownerEnding, with the ending where Ganz basically kills himself and humanity is implied to be destroyed being the BittersweetEnding!]]

* {{Gonk}}:
** Joaquel, a member of Void, is huge and hideous and disfigured.
** Anastasia looks like a pig in too much finery.



* {{Golem}}: Melissa Mark II. and presumably Sebastian as well.

* {{Guyliner}}:
** While it is uncertain whether Zane is wearing makeup or if that's just how he naturally looks, the fact that he is the only light elf who has green eyelids and green nails suggests the former.
** He could potentially also qualify for ExcessiveEvilEyeshadow.
* {{Golem}}: Melissa Mark II. and presumably Sebastian as well.

* CoordinatedClothes: Adina and Elena, also when the ColorContrast trope is additionally applied, Nogueira and Zane as Nogueira dons a red robe and Zane a blue one.

* CoordinatedClothes: Adina and Elena, also Elena. Also when the ColorContrast trope is additionally applied, Nogueira and Zane count as Nogueira dons a red robe and Zane a blue one.



* EvilPlan: As with BigBad, this trope is also averted as there is no one villain's plot that encompasses the whole game. It's more all the BB candidates {{plan}}s clashing until only one left is to finish their own.

* {{Bifauxnen}}: Her priest robes might give it away, but one will probably not realize Vitas is a girl if crossing her path at night.

* ViolenceReallyIsTheAnswer: Fortunately for Jack, the "kill everything" approach is born out as correct more often than not. Unfortunately for everyone else, the same approach is incorrect in two very big ways: [[spoiler: Carin killing the Water Dragon in the prologue and Cross slaughtering the dwarves just before the split.]]

Added DiffLines:

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: In the non-human path, [[spoiler:your final battle against Elwen can be won (though winning isn't mandatory) but the fight a little later against Cross is unwinnable. Yet the last fight against Cross near the end of the game is much easier to win than fighting Elwen, and this time he has soldiers backing him up. The only real justification one could make is Jack fights Elwen right at the entrance to the volcano while hes fresh, but fights Cross after having to fight his way through monsters and red orcs.]]
