* ArtisticLicenseChemistry: More than just Chemistry, but the abandoned Heraldic Weapons Facility is somehow still standing after 700 million years, looking less damaged than a Chernobyl building given the explosions that caused its abandonment. It somehow survived oxidation (being in an atmosphere), the effects of solar radiation, and weathering...not to mention overgrowth, wildlife interactions, and countless treasure hunters. Even its computers still function. In that time scale, TechnologyMarchesOn can't explain this one.

The second game in the ''Franchise/StarOcean'' series, ''Star Ocean: The Second Story'', was first released for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation, and unlike the first game, ''did'' get a Western release. A remake for the UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable, 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....

There was a GameBoyColor sequel to ''The Second Story'' entitled ''Star Ocean: Blue Sphere'', [[NoExportForYou that was not released outside of Japan.]] This was remade for cell phones following the success of the other two remakes.

* GenericCuteness: The PSP remake dispensed with the more detailed anime art style, giving everyone generic cuteness instead. A particular offender was Rena, who went from [[http://statici.behindthevoiceactors.com/behindthevoiceactors/_img/chars/rena-lanford-star-ocean-the-second-story-8.65.jpg this]] to [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/starocean/images/3/32/SE_Rena_Lanford_Screenshot.png/revision/latest?cb=20090831124229 this]].

** 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]].
