** Ashton describes himself as unlucky, and in fact he has pretty terrible luck throughout the game...''literally'', his luck stat is abysmal and doesn't get better.

** Ashton describes himself as unlucky, and in fact he has pretty terrible luck throughout the game...''literally'', his luck stat is abysmal and doesn't get better. This also applies to his hobby of collecting good luck charms-his best weapons, as well as certain other equipment, give him huge bonuses to his Luck, so that it can potentially be ''highest'' in the game.
** Ernest's status as a ChickMagnet is alluded to by the other party members' starting relationship values with him. Opera and Celine both begin with high Romance ratings for him.
** Dias's starting relationship values reflect his cold, antisocial personality. His starting values are low for everyone except Rena, who he grew up with, and Claude, who's earned his respect by the time he joins the party.
** Chisato always starts with the Writing talent, which reflects her skills as a journalist.

** [[spoiler: Chisato and Noel's endings are, no matter what, sad. Sure, if they hooked up with anyone they'll be able to find love, but they still have to live with the fact that they're the only ones who survived...]]

* DevelopersForesight: If you have recruited both [[spoiler: Chisato and Noel]], the ending scene of the PSP version will indeed have a voiced line saying that they [[spoiler: knew all along, kept it to themselves, and Nall will say the three of them, including Rena, are the last of their kind]].

The second game in the ''Franchise/StarOcean'' series, ''Star Ocean: The Second Story'', was first released for the PlayStation, and unlike the first game, ''did'' get a Western release. A remake for the {{PlayStation Portable}}, titled ''Star Ocean: Second Evolution'', was released in early 2009. Claude C. Kenny, son of Ronyx from the first game, is a new ensign in [[TheFederation the Pangalactic Federation]] struggling to remove himself from his famous father's shadow. His first mission, exploring Milokeenia, is directly under Admiral Ronyx's command. He activates a {{precursor}} teleporter and ends up stranded on the primitive planet of Expel, where he saves the other main character Rena Lanford from a rampaging monster. Hailed as a prophesied savior, Claude sets off on a quest to find out why things have gotten so bad on Expel recently. But there's more at stake here than just one primitive planet....

* CantGetAwayWithNuthin: If you pickpocket people while the party is assembled, (ie. you aren't in Private Action mode) your relationship values with everyone will decrease.

* CantGetAwayWithNuthin: If you pickpocket people while the party is assembled, (ie. you aren't in Private Action mode) your relationship values with everyone will decrease. In the PSP remake, this happens even if you are in Private Action mode.

* TrappedInAnotherWorld: This is essentially what Claude is or at least, what he ''could've'' been; the script doesn't play up that detail much, with the sole exception of him having to obey the {{Alien Non-Interference Clause}}.

* CannotSpitItOut: After arriving on Energy Nede, Claude can't bring himself to tell Rena and the rest that [[spoiler: Expel was destroyed]] (If they're in the party, Ernest and Opera will also show the same reluctance). [[spoiler: The Elders of Nede break the news for him and reveal, in the same sentence, that there's a way to bring it back.]]

* CallForward: Welch in ''Second Evolution''. Among other things, she introduces herself as [[StarOcean3 "a creator", then mentions that she's from Elicoor II, and in one Private Action, she tells a fairy tale about two warring kingdoms (clearly Airyglyph and Aquaria, which are on Elicoor II).]]
