** [[spoiler: In the non-human path, Ganz is so shocked by his father's death that he chooses to stay in the Gold Dragon's castle as it collapses, knowing full well that it will kill him.

** When Jarvis gets stinking drunk at Carl's pub in the middle of the day, and in the presence of Jack and Daniel, Gerald happens to walk into the pub, smiles as he greets the two before dragging the very nervous sergeant out onto the street. You are left to guess what happens next.
** Gerald appears to be calm when he gets up and leaves his office when Jack delivers a letter to him, [[spoiler:which turns out to be a challenge to a fist-fight by Nocturne]].

* DudeLooksLikeALady: Felix, and possibly Lucian. The former especially has trouble with this trait in regards to other characters. One LPer remarked that Zane looks just like his brother "except more like a chick". If it weren't for his beard he would probably be more convincing.

There's a side plot where [[spoiler:Franz, a dark elf who's obsessed with martial arts, challenges Gil. Gil beats him in about two seconds, but gives the boy some encouraging words nonetheless. They then run off into the sunset which confuses the onlooking Jack.]]

* AmbiguouslyGay: AmbiguousGenderIdentity: There are a couple of characters that fit this trope:
** Charlie, while appearing to be just your average flamboyant guy, is seen exiting the women's restroom in one scene.
