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 UsefulNotes/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.

* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Human characters can learn grappling attacks when their barehand abilities are high enough. TakenUpToEleven if any learn the DSC tech, which is a combo of throws and slams, having the potential to do damage over the 10,000s.

Added DiffLines:

* PeninsulaOfPowerLeveling: Bio Research Lab. The enemy's power level will usually be significantly higher than yours, making it the best place to quickly learn new skills and gain stat boosts a lot. Yorkland Swamp serves the same role once you're done with the Grail quest, but it only features reptilian enemies, which cannot be found in Bio Research Labs.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: This is the main plot driver for Asellus' quest. The Mystics of Fascinaturu can't believe that a Mystic as powerful as Asellus has no interest in playing their games.

* Blue is unable to learn Mind magic until after the duel with Rouge, because [[spoiler: his soul is split between the two of them.]]
* Non-boss mystic enemies are only able to do a fraction of their potential damage to PC mystics, illustrating the power gap between common mystic and the party's noble mystics.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Two aversions- Red is unable to transform into Alkaiser when the humans in his group are healthy, because it would give away his secret identity.

** Also averted with non-boss mystic enemies doing a fraction of their potential damage to PC mystics, illustrating the power gap between common mystic and the party's noble mystics.

** [[spoiler: In Emelia's bad ending, she kills Joker, her quest's goal, and prevented the Cube from being misused by either him or anyone else, but what is there left after? Ren is still dead.dead, and unbeknownst to her, it was her who did it. Emelia leaves Gradius to figure out what to do with her life. Even Roufas thinks that this is too much for her, so he ordered her to forget about Gradius, her friendship with him, Annie and Liza, and tell her to live on without any more fighting. And she did, but wherever she goes afterwards, it's unknown.]]

Added DiffLines:

* UniqueProtagonistAsset: Excepting Lute who's instead [[StandardizedLeader being the most]] [[TheGenericGuy basic character for a leader]], each protagonist has something ''special'' that makes them stand out or being very powerful than other characters. Riki has the Rings, Emelia has her ability to switch costumes to manipulate her learning tree, [=T260G=] can change bodies and get the ultimate body form that no other Mecs can access, Blue can obtain ALL magic gifts in the game at once except Mystic, Evil or Mirage Magic [[spoiler:but only after he beats or is beaten by Rouge]], Asellus is a Half-Mystic thus can combine Human growth and skills with Mystic's buffs and Red can turn into Alkaiser and gain Alkaiser-only techs.

** Also certain emulators like [=pSX=] will have the game completely freeze if you enter the Save screen, and everytime you kill [=BossX=], the emulator crashes, rendering Red's quest {{Unwinnable}}.
