Added DiffLines:

* ArchaicWeaponForAnAdvancedAge: As usual for Star Ocean. In the beginning, it's justified because the monsters apparently detect electromagnetic fields that old weapons don't generate. Edge himself uses a sword because his reflexes [[spoiler: from being a Seed Of Hope]] make him aim ahead of anybody instead of where they actually are, causing his shots to miss. A problem a sword apparently doesn't have.

Added DiffLines:

* SantaClaus: Santa is a wandering merchant who sells stuff at insanely high prices in the Wandering Dungeon and can be encountered randomly. When Edge first sees him, he suggests that he might be some cosplayer, but he is actually Santa. Despite the high prices, a lot of his stuff is really good, or at the very least unique. That doesn't stop Edge, once you exit the shop menu, from complaining that he'd have to take out a mortgage to afford the stuff.

* MultiMookMelee: The fight against the Phantom Soldiers on Aeos consists of one normal battle followed by '''seven''' ambushes.

* MultiMookMelee: The fight against the Phantom Soldiers on Aeos consists of one normal battle followed by '''seven''' ambushes. This is also the case for the "Defeat the assassins" trials in the Wandering Dungeon. That said, these are generally considered the easiest trials compared with those that require you to "clear abhorrent crystals" or find numerous Geostones.

Added DiffLines:

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: In one of the most unusual and perhaps bizarre examples ever, after beating the game at least once it is possible to [[spoiler:choose to keep Faize in your battle party at the point in which Arumat would normally join. The thing is, he joins your battle party ''only'', everything else about the game's plot and all of the cutscenes proceed as if Arumat was with you, up to and including the fact that a form of Faize is the final boss. This means that it is actually possible to have Faize fighting himself in the final battles.]]

* {{Facepalm}}: Edge can't help but do this after a strange conversation between Sarah and the King of Astral in which she gives him the "gist" of an official letter that she's apparently had for more than three years and had forgotten to give him up until then.

(She says she was fifteen when she got the letter. The game's dictionary gives her age as 19.)

* ShipperOnDeck: If you return to Aeos after clearing out Lemuris, you can talk to Commander Grafton and learn he's rooting for Edge/Reimi.

If you return to Aeos after clearing out Lemuris, you can talk to Commander Grafton and learn he's rooting for Edge/Reimi.Edge/Reimi.
** After [[spoiler:the SRF is disbanded and Edge and the others decide to go it on their own]], Edge and Reimi have an unusually serious conversation with Welch in which she tells them that she'll be with them all the way. Unusually serious, that is... right up to the point where she says [[spoiler:"I'm doing this for you two lovers, you know." and then claims that they're "eloping to the end of the universe," to find secret love beyond the stars.]]
--->'''Reimi''': That was just another one of her jokes, right? She knows the truth, doesn't she?

* LoopholeAbuse: Following [[spoiler:the destruction of the Eldarian homeworld]], the [=USTA=] declares that the [[spoiler:[=SRF=] is to be disbanded. In fact, it never existed, and therefore couldn't have caused the destruction like the Eldarians claim.]] Commander "Lightspeed" Kenny is ordered to carry this out by [[spoiler:destroying all remaining [=SRF=] vessels]], but when he encounters Edge and his crew and explains the situation to them, Edge refuses to stand down, even knowing that he'll be branded a pariah, and the rest of the crew stands with them. Kenny decides to let them go. Afterwards, in explaining how they'll justify this to one of his comrades, [[spoiler:they never encountered any [=SRF=] vessels. After all, there is no [=SRF=] and never was, so how could have any vessels?]]

* FetchQuest: The majority of the game's [[PlotIrrelevantSidequests plot irrelevant sidequests]] are these. Many require to fetch multiple items over various points in the game, or craft them, which requires you to fetch multiple items needed to craft them. Occasionally you can just buy the items, but you can't count on that.
