* DifficultySpike: Pure Land. If you decided to go straight here after completing the Grand Palace, the enemies and the first boss will kill you quickly. So back to Sunken Continent, find Neko, and buy the very expensive armors. That will make your life easier.

* InfinityPlusOneSword: RandomlyDrops from the enemies in TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon. Ironically, the Gigas Axe is actually better in every way than its final form, the Doom Axe.

to:

* InfinityPlusOneSword: InfinityMinusOneSword: RandomlyDrops from the enemies in TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon. Ironically, the Gigas Axe is actually better in every way than its final form, the Doom Axe.Axe, due to +5 on character strength.
* InfinityPlusOneSword: [[spoiler:The fully restored Mana Sword (Level 9). Its attack exceeds that of any weapon in the game by over 70 points. Obviously, the high attack was designed to attack the Mana Beast's godly defense while other weapons cannot harm it. This is legitimately available at the end of the game by casting the no-longer-sealed Mana Power from both Primm and Popoi near simultaneously or by cheating via sword orb glitch.]]

** [[spoiler:The emperor's in on this]] in the Japanese game; poor Ted Woolsey ran out of text space, though, so we Stateside never got that plot point.

* FourIsDeath: The emperor's quartet of hench...uh, people (Fanha, Geshtar, Sheex, Thanatos). They're referred to with the traditional 'shitennou' in the Japanese game.

* HopeSpot: In one last ditch attempt to repower the Mana Sword, the heroes make way for the Mana Tree. But just as they arrive, the tree is destroyed by the Mana Fortress.



* MundaneUtility: To illustrate how mankind is misusing Mana, two of the Elemental spirits have been captured and forced into using their powers for frivolous purposes. The Scorpion Army captured Salamando, the fire spirit, just to make a warm, tropical village in the middle of a frozen continent (which immediately became high-price real estate). Luma, the light spirit, was captured by the ruler of a small island and forced to turn the island into solid gold. Again, real-estate on the island became absurdly valuable, even though it was causing the island to slowly sink into the sea.
* MythologyGag: Jema himself is a shout to the Gemma Knights of the first game, released in the US as ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyAdventure''.

Added DiffLines:

** The overworld song that plays after the Mana Fortress emerges but before you have access to it has a nice sense of foreboding, but lasts only until [[spoiler: the Mana Tree is destroyed]], when it's replaced by a fittingly frenetic song instead.

* BigEater: Popoi, who eats an entire ship's supply of food when forced to do kitchen duty. "[[GetOut Get him out of here!!]]"here!!]]" In the remake, Popoi expresses an interest in eating the [[PlotCoupon Mana Seeds]], and considers it a revelation that the Empire is not trying to get them to eat them (which, as Primm points out, she and Randi weren't even considering in the first place.)

Added DiffLines:

* DialogDuringGameplay: The remake introduces conversations held by Randi, Primm and Popoi when you stay at an inn, where they'll discuss what recently has happened in the journey. It's not quite [[NowWhereWasIGoingAgain a full recap]], but it adds some characterization to them, with Primm often teasing Randi's attempts to show himself as a capable warrior.
