** The Cave of The Seven Stars' background music is exactly the same as that in the Seraphic Gate of ''ValkyrieProfile''.

** Ashlay may also count; however to be fair you can discover him by poking around the town he's in, and he does give a very strong hint that he's playable.

* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Jie Revorse seems to come out of nowhere and have little to do with the previous plot in the original version, mainly because his existence is only vaguely alluded to once prior to his reveal late in the game. [[note]]Early in the game we're told that the bio-weapon that turned the Roakians into stone was given to the perpetrators by a mysterious third party. Said third party is revealed late in the game to be planet Fargett, ruled by Jie Revorse.[[/note]] The remake does a better job of tying him in to the main plot.

** Hell, [[spoiler:Jie Revorse himself might count. For well over three fourths of the game, Asmodeus is clearly built up to be the BigBad, but once he's defeated, the plot basically goes "Oh yeah, by the way, there's this evil alien warlord who'[s never been mentioned until now in the present trying to conquer the galaxy. Go stop him."]]

Added DiffLines:

* OverratedAndUnderleveled: Ashlay is, in-universe, a skilled swordsman. However, he is actually no stronger than any of your party members and, compared to the other recruitable characters, becomes a little less powerful later on. This actually [[JustifiedTrope makes perfect sense in-universe though]] - For one, Ashlay is sixty years old, is missing an arm, and likely has some other injuries slowing him down. He's still a HandicappedBadass though.

The first game in the ''Franchise/StarOcean'' series, ''Star Ocean'' was originally released for the Super Famicom; that version was [[NoExportForYou never ported to the West]], though {{Fan Translation}}s exist. Creator/SquareEnix [[VideoGameRemake remade]] this game for the [=PSP=]; this remake, subtitled ''First Departure'', was released in the US and UK in October 2008. It tells the tale of a young boy named Ratix Farrence from the planet Roak (most of whose inhabitants have tails and [[UnusualEars pointed ears]], though there are other races) whose world is under threat from a horrible disease that makes those who catch it [[TakenForGranite turn to stone.]] Seems like standard fantasy fare, until Captain Ronyx J. Kenny and his Number One Ilia Silvestri from the Terran Alliance beam down to the planet to investigate. The stone disease is much more than what it seems, not just for Roak but other planets as well....

* HealerSignsOnEarly: Averted. The first character with healing spells isn't available until the last dungeon on the second continent; both he and (at that point in the game) the dungeon are optional. Millie, the non-optional healer, doesn't join until you get to the last continent on Roak.
