%%* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:Teo.]]

to:

%%* * AntiVillain: [[spoiler:Teo.]]Teo [=McDohl=] and Ain Gide, who are just fighting the protagonist's side for their country. [[spoiler:Emperor Barbarossa is revealed to be one as well at the end, as his actions were only motivated by his misguided love for Windy]]. The other four Great Generals also start out as this [[spoiler:but they can all join your side eventually]].



* BigBad: While Barbarossa is TheEmperor, it's ultimately Windy who takes this role, as she effectively controls the Scarlet Moon Empire because of her brainwashing Black Runes [[spoiler:and Barbarossa's love for her]], and her pursuit of the Soul Eater causes the plot.



%%* ChainOfDeals: The Soap.

to:

%%* * ChainOfDeals: The Soap.To recruit Sarah, you have to get her some soap, which involves one of these. [[spoiler:Once you get it, for her, it turns out she found some herself in the meanwhile]].



%%* ChekhovsGun: The Fire Spears.

to:

%%* * ChekhovsGun: The Fire Spears.Spears, which you deliver the plans for early in the game, eventually get used to counter Teo's armored cavalry. On top of that, [[ChekhovsBoomerang they get used again in]] [[VideoGame/SuikodenII the sequel]].



%%* CombinationAttack

to:

%%* CombinationAttack* CombinationAttack: Introduced Unite attacks, which would remain a staple of the series.



* DuelBoss: Most notably [[spoiler:[=McDohl=]'s father]].
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The only installment that don't play [[MsFanservice Jeane]] up as the HelloNurse

to:

* DuelBoss: Most notably [[spoiler:[=McDohl=]'s father]].
Featured a different battle system for one-on-one battles, which became a consistent element in the series. Surprisingly, there's only three in this game: [[spoiler:One with Kwanda Rosman and two with Teo [=McDohl=]]].
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: EarlyInstallmentWeirdness:
**
The only installment that don't play [[MsFanservice Jeane]] up as the HelloNurseHelloNurse.
** Some aspects of the battle system. There's only one rune slot for all party members, meaning only one rune can be equipped to any of them. From ''VideoGame/SuikodenII'', there's three rune slots, some of which can only be equipped to some slots, and the amount open varying per character.
** The war battles have a simple [[TacticalRockPaperScissors rock-paper-scissors system]] in this game, with them being more like [[StrategyRPG Strategy RPGs]] in the later games.



* EvilSorcerer: Windy.



* EvilSorcerer: Windy.



* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: The Crystal Core, a floating crystal ball found up in the mountains that seems to have no purpose than to provide a boss fight. Lampshaded in this case, since a character will exclaim "What the hell!" before the fight.

** The following boss, Shell Venus, is another example. It's a large and surprisingly dangerous shell in the way of the flood gate control in Shasarazade, and has just as much context.



** Due to data read error, when you use an OldSaveBonus to unlock extra stuff in ''VideoGame/SuikodenII'', [=McDohl=] doesn't really get renamed. Instead, the first letter of his name in ''VideoGame/SuikodenI'' becomes the first letter of his name in ''VideoGame/SuikodenII''. So, he could be named [=TcDohl=]. In other words, name him something that begins with an M.

* HiddenElfVillage: Subverted, in that it's out in the open and rather easy to find. They're not very hospitable toward humans, though

%%* PlotlineDeath* PlotlineDeath: [[spoiler:Ted]], [[spoiler:Odessa]] and [[spoiler:Gremio]] all die in cutscenes. The latter can be resurrected, but there's no way to save the former two. [[spoiler:Pahn]] is another potential example, but this can be prevented.



* SourSupporter: Flik starts as one, due to [[spoiler:Odessa]]'s death. [[CharacterDevelopment He gets better]] after [[spoiler:Gremio]]'s HeroicSacrifice.

* SequenceBreaking: If you go outside before talking to anyone, you can level up quickly, then get your first companion and go outside with him as well. Since TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything, going to an area you aren't supposed to go to until later will get you a good rune. If you go alone, it's double experience. Going with a friend gets you double money. And you get items to make your characters regen along the way as well.
