* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Besides the use of the book type as said above, weapons are thrown when used by characters [[AvertedTrope who can't use them]] - to the point the throw itself is badly aimed.
* {{Tomboy}}: Serene. [[spoiler:[[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak Although she's secretly extremely feminine.]]]]
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Cierra (VERY girly), Fia (girly), Lina (less girly) and Serene (tomboy).
* TooAwesomeToUse: Since the battle system is based entirely on consumable items, there are several items which have very low uses, sometimes even only one. Among them are the InfinityPlusOneSword weapons Fanelia and Longinius, which deal truly excessive amounts of damage; however other than against the FinalBoss, there's no real reason to actually use them, so 99.99% of the time they'll just occupy your item slots (of which you have only 15!).
* TrueCompanions: Ein's party. ThePowerOfFriendship is explored in Chapter 6, when Fia gets ''very angry'' with Ein for [[spoiler:keeping to himself in order to {{Wangst}} about having to fight his former ally Ledah]].
* {{Tsundere}}: Lulu. [[spoiler:It seems childhood trauma is as much a part of her attitude as typical ''tsuntsun''.]]

* VideoGameCaringPotential: Curing a mute mermaid, redeeming demon siblings and generally being a decent person is totally viable. On the other hand there're also...
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: ...the many, ''many'' options of being a total {{Jerkass}} which, apparently, is actually {{Canon}} to boot.
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:Hector gets one after Ein defeats him as Seth-Rah, complete with a '''"WHAT ARE YOU?!"''' also making it a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.]]

* BeeAfraid: The team disturbs a Kredna Beehive early in the story and somehow manages to forget the incident in time to anger some killer bees later in the game. Failing the quicktime sequence results in stings and HP reductions for the whole party, but humorous dialogue makes up for it.

* CompetitiveBalance: As follows.
** MightyGlacier: Ein
** FragileSpeedster: Lina
** TheMedic: Fia
** GlassCannon: Serene (mostly due to low MDF and elemental weaknesses)
** SquishyWizard: Cierra, as Ein had experienced firsthand on the first meeting!
** CrutchCharacter: Ledah, the whole point of whom is to keep Ein from dying in the [[ProlongedPrologue Longest Tutorial Ever]]. He progresses to more of TheMario if you get him again in the BonusDungeon.

* [[BonusStage Bonus Chapter]]: Chapter 8, Parveeju Temple. (It if can even be called one...)On the GBA, it's only the boss fight, in the PSP re-remake it's a full chapter with many enemies, items, a new mechanic and of course lots of hilarious dialogue.

Added DiffLines:

* BatOutOfHell: There are three different bat items... as weapons! You catch them and use them against your enemies. However like the bees below they are also known to have a chance of rebellion, unless Serene uses them. Serene herself also works with the iconography, bat wings and a large scythe like the grim reaper, but she's one of the heroes.
