* LostForever:
** Every one of the Stars of Destiny save the plot-relevant main characters. If you fail to recruit even one of the Stars or allow one of them to die permanently in battle, you can kiss the [[MultipleEndings Best Ending]] goodbye.
** Bizarrely, though, while several Stars of Destiny are absurdly easy to miss -- several in each game can usually be missed simply by proceeding in the logical fashion through the plot without revisiting old areas -- this trope is generally subverted with nearly everything unique ''other'' than Stars of Destiny. Frequently, minor unique items like music or voice sets that you miss the first time around will appear in shops elsewhere as rare finds... this sort of thing does ''not'' (generally) happen with the far-more-important missable characters, for some reason, although there's a few exceptions.

* EmpathicWeapon: Although not weapons in the traditional sence, all 27 True Runes are sentient for the most part, one of them takes the form of the Zodiac/Star Dragon Sword. Interestingly, the sword is an absolute {{Jerkass}} to everyone. Even it's 'preferred' wielders.

** Almost all the heroes are {{Lightning Bruiser}}s, but among them [[SuikodenI Tir McDohl]] and [[SuikodenII Riou]] stand out. [[SuikodenIII Hugo]] can be best described as the FragileSpeedster among the heroes, [[SuikodenV Freyjadour Falenas]] the [[JackOfAllStats Jacks of All Stats]], [[SuikodenIII Thomas]] the LethalJokeCharacter, [[SuikodenIII Geddoe]] {{the Red Mage}}, [[SuikodenIII Chris Lightfellow]] the {{Mighty Glacier}} and [[SuikodenIV Lazlo]][[spoiler: En Kuldes]] the {{Glacier Waif}}.

Added DiffLines:

* WarIsHell: A constant theme in every game. While the tone is usually light, the games don't shy away from the horrors of war and other serious subjects, and include scenes of populations slaughtered, villages devastated, lives destroyed, orphans, betrayal, racism, resistance from oppression, post-traumatic stress disorder...

* LivingForeverIsAwesome: Demonstrated in three where [[spoiler: Geddoe]] holds onto the True Lightening Rune even after a contemporary has given up there's. [[spoiler: Chris]] also holds onto the True Elemental Rune that she receives.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfSidequests: About half the 108 playable characters in the series are optional, and the optional ones usually have some kind of sidequest that needs to be completed before joining. Everyone seems to think one has hours available to go cooking, fishing, exploring dungeons, backtracking, fetching things, taking them to see people... and even after you recruit them, a number of them still have minigames to play.

** After the 3rd game this happens much less, with SuikodenTierkreis having ZERO continuity nods to previous games. Needless to say this caused a BaseBreaker moment.

** Happens without fail every time, usually attributed to a big discharge of energy during the battle. Even in ''Suikoden III'', where the fight takes place in a faily big open-air area that still manages to fall on the boss and kill it, while your characters flee to safety... through the underground tunnels.

Among fans, ''VideoGame/SuikodenII'' is usually considered to be the strongest of the series (too bad it's also the one you're least likely to find, and the most expensive if you do find it), while ''IV'' is widely seen as the weakest. While not as graphically flashy as other video game series like ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'', this series has a lot to offer for gamers who like long and involved plots filled with intrigue and interesting characters.

* GoToAlias: The entire series has the recurring alias of Scholtheim Reinbach III/IV. Made much funnier when [[BecauseImJonesy one of the games actually features the real Scholtheim Reinback III.]]
