* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The party manages to solve many of the world's problems only to create new problems instead, the biggest example being when [[spoiler:Luke sunk Akzeriuth.]] Most of these also result in other pseudo [[EarthShatteringKaboom kabooms]].

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Before the game is two-thirds over, the machinations of the BigBad have resulted in a peace treaty between the world's two warring powers, the fixing of an ecological disaster, and the restoration of an older, better order. The main characters, representing at least one leader (or leadership-adjacent person) from Auldrant's four or five major political powers, have also become FireForgedFriends and are instrumental in resolving these problems. Perhaps the best illustration is the FalseFlagOperation mentioned above, which is shut down via nothing more or less than the {{Player Characters}}' trust in each other.

* AbortedArc: Tear "[[AccidentalKidnapping kidnapping]]" Luke is never fully explored in regards to consequences, and neither is her loyalty to Mohs despite his hands in the problems they face. Also, [[spoiler: Mohs deliberate sends her to Akzeriuth, with the implication he knew there was no Seventh Fonstone and he just wanted her dead due to her actions nearly ruining his plans with Van]] but this is never brought up ever again, even in subsequent arcs when Mohs continues to be an enemy to the group.

** Interestingly enough, all ChildSoldiers are part of the Oracle Knights, and it's implied neither Kimlasca or Malkuth would put any one under the age of majority in a dangerous situation or a potentially dangerous post.

* DontSaySuchStupidThings: Every time Luke opens his mouth.mouth past his ImportantHaircut and gaining a ''massive'' GuiltComplex. [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] as this does nothing but make Luke bury his issues and do his best to hide them from his friends. It takes him [[spoiler: nearly dying]] and finally realizing his own personal value for him to start getting better.

* InformedFlaw: Jade says several times that he doesn't understand what death means. This is from a guy who as a child used the still very experimental Fomicry on his Professor in a desperate attempt to keep her from dying (with disastrous results) and comes to greatly regret the suffering and death that his creation of Fomicry has caused. [[SarcasmMode Yeah, that definitely is the sign of an amoral sociopath.]] Of course given that this is ''Jade'', this might be sarcasm.

** Tear never shuts up about how Luke shouldn't trust Van [[spoiler: and that he should have seen his betrayal and true nature coming.]] At the same time, her own loyalty to the ObviouslyEvil Mohs never gets addressed [[spoiler: even after it's clear he's as responsible for the horrible things happening as much as Van.]]
