* CrutchCharacter: A twist on this trope. In the early part of the game, Jowy is a member of your party, and he and the player character Riou can perform a Unite attack that strikes all enemies for regular weapon damage. There's no penalty in contrast to a lot of other Unite abilities and it can be used every turn making it much easier to take out large enemy groups. You lose access to this technique when Jowy leaves due to plot events, but by that point in the game you should no longer have to rely on it.

* KickTheDog: Luca Blight does this for [[IncrediblyLamePun kicks]]. Shu also engages in a fair amount of puppy-punting, especially when [[spoiler: he uses Pilika as a human shield and abandons her to the enemy so that the hero may escape from an otherwise hopeless trap. Granted, he did this knowing Jowy would never let any harm come to her, but it still came off as rather asshole-ish.]]

* CutsceneIncompetence: Recruiting Oulan means that your hero had to play weak, gets knocked out and the ladies almost getting kidnapped so Oulan can save the day. But this can be done anytime once you get your HQ, so even an immortal vampiress can 'almost' get kidnapped by a group of thugs, and these thugs can knock out and ambush the guy who beat the crap out of Luca Blight (recruiting Oulan also took place in Kuskus where the citizens clearly recognize you as the slayer of Luca Blight when Culgan attempted to invite the hero for peace treaty, so these thugs will know that... and succeed anyway before Oulan comes)

* CutSceneIncompetence: If you choose to flee Tinto, Riou and the party will have a difficult time of fighting some zombies out of battle, causing Riou to have to use his rune's power and weaken himself.

* AwesomeButImpractical: You can recruit monster characters (including a griffin, an unicorn, and a kraken) into your army with the Listening Runes. Monsters have impressive stats and abilities, but are so large that they take up two character slots. In most cases using two regular characters will be more effective.
