* DeveloperForesight: In one area, you're turned into a mouse and tasked with emptying the Hackers' coffers (5000 GP) in order to be turned back. As a condition of your new form, you're too short to use the Invention Machine and can't use items in battle, which nominally prevents you from making repairs or buying new equipment. However, each time you gain a level you can use the Portable Invention Machine, with which you can spend money to your heart's content. If you manage to reduce your total GP to less than 5000, the intended recipient comments on the lack of funds -- then takes everything you have left. If you manage to reach zero GP (which is a lot harder but still doable), he'll assume you're holding out and you'll have to find at least a little money to give him. Abusing this is a good way to afford your third robot.

* LostForever: Several dungeons and past Rococo become inaccessible after you go through them, so any items you miss are gone for good.



* PowerUpLetDown: Unfortunately, many of the weapons in the game end up like this, once you've boiled down equipment combinations and strategies that work in pretty much any situation.
** A specific example: Blade 4, like Sword 4, can launch an attack that can hit all on-screen enemies once sufficiently leveled up and is the most powerful weapon in the game. Unfortunately, it can't be leveled up unless the player seeks out the equipment leveling capsules in battle (which is more tedious than anything). Worse still, it is useless against a large portion of the mooks you'll be fighting from then on, though the three-swing combo will kill some things one shot won't.

** Otherwise, the bomb + shot/laser combinations for skill. One of them, dubbed "big bang" hits every enemy on screen, the usefulness drops like a rock after the first boss. The second one launches three times the bombs that hit random places.

* DiscOneNuke: Axes. They are the most powerful melee weapon bar none, and trivially easy to make. If you have some money and know what you're doing, you can make a Lvl 9 Axe 1 fairly early in the game. With a little more know how, you can get the third iteration before the third boss. And you can level any of the Axes up by combining it with Sword 1 (though it's cheaper to get it from the battlefield capsules). To give an idea of how broken axes are in the game, a critical hit with the three-hit-combo macro from the backside will '''ONE SHOT NEARLY EVERY BOSS'''.

* UselessItem: For combat related purposes, pretty much every long range weapon after the second boss qualifies, where often times you'll find enemies in dungeons half way in that are practically immune to them... and that's all you'll fight.

* AwesomeButPractical: Sword 4 when you obtain it. It's a sword that, when used, calls down lightning on every enemy on the field for the same energy cost as a melee weapon, and leveling it up is a joke (combine it with Sword 1 several times over). It loses its effectiveness over time, however, since mooks gradually become immune to ranged attacks.
