So reads the back of the case for ''[=SaGa=] Frontier'', the first ''VideoGame/{{SaGa}}'' game released in North America since ''VideoGame/{{SaGa 3}}'' (aka ''Final Fantasy Legend III'') and the first one on the {{PlayStation}}. It came out March 25 1998, (July 11 '97 in Japan) and was produced by Creator/{{Square|Enix}}soft's Production Team 2 (referred to as "2nd Division" in-game.) The 75 song soundtrack was composed and arranged by Creator/KenjiIto, who also did the soundtracks for previous ''[=SaGa=]'' titles.

* ThePowerOfFriendship: Two notable examples, as detailed in [[AllThereInTheManual "The Essence of Saga Frontier"]]. The first is that chronologically, Lute's quest is last, because he was too busy helping everyone else, but as a bonus, his new friends help him in his final battle. The second offers a more optimistic ending for Blue. [[spoiler: Because he remembered that there were people outside who cared about him, he musters the power to break out of Hell.]]

Technically, it's the more friendlier Rouge, but since Blue is inside him, [[{{Jerkass}} he]] probably starts appreciating friendship.]]

** [[spoiler: In Riki's ending, her people lose their home, she has to kill her treacherous best friend, and her entire quest turns out to be a ShaggyDogStory because the artifact she was hoping to find was cursed to begin with. Still, her people did survive, so that's something.]]

* SheIsTheKing: Asellus is called the "Prince" of Facinaturu. This is likel due to the facts that: A)In Facinaturu, "Princess" is a term reserved for Orlouge's mistresses, and B) The Mystics don't tend to care much about gender.

** [[spoiler: Asellus' Half-Mystic ending is just a touch above a downer. She saves Gina, White Rose and probably Lion Princess, takes down Orlouge and is free of his pursuers, but is left without a place in the world and becomes a wandering adventurer, and her only tie to normality is her annual reunion with Gina, who is [[MayflyDecemberRomance growing old while she remains forever young]]. Meanwhile, in the Full Human ending, she gets to return to a normal life after saving everyone...but it's bittersweet for ''Gina'', because Asellus marries a man and never gets together with her.]]

* TheFairFolk The Mystics of ''Saga Frontier'' used to be this way, and the nobles who dwell in their hidden region still are. Though they have gotten a bit better, and for example [[TheWildHunt hunting humans for sport]] has fallen out of fashion. Lower caste mystics show the trope best, ranging in appearance from mermaids to large troll-like creatures. The higher level nobles tend to appear as beautiful humans, with the highest level, according to AllThereInTheManual being the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent True Vampires]].

** Any Mec can easily become one of these, if you know where to find certain pieces of free, powerful equipment. Or simply abuse the Junk Shop Glitch and/or Takonomics to buy high-end equipment, netting you endgame-level character(s) within the first hour or two of the scenario.

* PointOfNoReturn: Hell in Blue's game, Mondo's base in Lute's, and the Black Ray in Red's. Saving in any of these places before you're trained well enough can make the game {{Unwinnable}}.

** Asellus and Riki can leave their final dungeons at any point, but both have opportunities to save immediately before fighting their final bosses, also leaving you in an Unwinnable situation if you can't actually handle said bosses.
