* DevelopersForesight: Dialog with several NPCs and Vyse's internal monologue upon inspecting certain objects changes throughout the game to reflect where the player is in the story. Some conversations will also happen differently depending on dialog choices the player made and optional events they've seen- for example, Osman joining the crew of the Delpinus plays out differently depending on whether Aika and Fina tried to get a loan from her while separated from Vyse.

The game received an UpdatedRerelease for the UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube called ''Skies of Arcadia: Legends''. It reduced the random encounter rate to a more sensible level (and increased the XP rewards accordingly), added in new {{Bonus Boss}}es, Discoveries and {{Sidequest}}s, and inserted the content that was originally tied to the Dreamcast's VMU minigame. Sega had hinted at [[http://www.geek.com/articles/games/sega-hints-at-shenmue-skies-of-arcadia-hd-updates-20120315/ an HD Rerelease, but as time went on, this is sadly looking less likely.]]

While a revival is still up in the air, Sega hasn't forgotten about the game- they've made the full soundtrack available on Amazon and Spotify, cameo versions of Vyse, Akia, and Fina were playable characters in ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'', and ''[[VideoGame/SEGASuperstars Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed]]'' included Vyse as a playable racer and a track based on Arcadia's airships and floating islands.

** As an added bonus, the moons supply Arcadia with [[GreenRocks Moon Stones]], which are the foundation of all magic and [[{{Magitek}} technology]] on the planet - each moon provides magic governing a different {{element|alPowers}}, so they're ColorCodedForYourConvenience.

As of 2012, the game was finally inducted into the ''VideoGame/SEGASuperstars'' series via Vyse's inclusion as a playable character in ''Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed''. The game also includes a ''Skies of Arcadia''-inspired track with remixes of songs from the game.

* ShaggyDogStory: About a quarter of the way into the game, the party gets separated, and Vyse crashes on an uninhabited island and spends most of his time there repairing the lifeboat. As soon as he finishes the repairs, Gilder's ship flies by and rescues him, making repairing the lifeboat entirely pointless.

* {{Troperiffic}}: Name a heroic fantasy or [=RPG=] cliche and ''Skies of Arcadia'' probably has it somewhere. Cleverly, other [=RPG=] games from the time of its release [[FollowTheLeader were all trying to mimic]] ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'''s DarkerAndEdgier DeconstructorFleet, so ''Skies'''s return to a pure adventure story where a group of plucky heroes race against an evil empire to gather magic crystals and save the world, actually came across as ''a breath of fresh air'' rather than a ClicheStorm.
