* ApocalypseMaiden: [[spoiler: Luke fon Fabre]] considering that the Score ultimately reveals [[spoiler: the destruction of Akzeriuth]] was supposed to set in motion a series of events that would result in TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. The BigBad deciding to make it happen on ''his'' terms is what kicks off the plot.

The BigBad deciding to make it happen on ''his'' terms [[spoiler: and creating his own ApocalypseMaiden in the form of TheHero to do so]] is what kicks off the plot.

* PoorlyTimedConfession: {{Defied}}. Luke considers telling Tear he loves her, [[spoiler: but because he is SecretlyDying and will not likely survive the final battle, he decides not to tell her because it'll hurt Tear.]]

* BlamingTheRailroadedPlayerCharacter: [[spoiler:Luke spends a good portion of the game being a whiny, self-absorbed burden on the party (even if he does hold his own in battle). When his actions result in what amounts to an entire town being massacred, he's uniformly blamed by his party members, and ''continues'' to insist that it wasn't his fault. To be fair, it kind of is his fault. But to be fairer, [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption there's no other way things could have possibly gone for the player]].]]

* MusicalSpoiler: During the scene at the [[spoiler: Akzeriuth passage ring]], if nothing else has so far, the soundtrack playing [[spoiler: Van -- Truth]], a foreboding-sounding melody, gives the player a clue that [[spoiler: Van's]] intentions are definitely not for anyone's benefit.


Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: In most RPGs, the heroes kill mooks, even human ones, without a second thought. Although Luke has no problem killing monsters, the first time he kills a human, he has a HeroicBSOD.

* {{Irony}}: in the Cheagle Woods storyline, when Luke is telling Mieu to breathe fire all over the place, he is warned that Mieu's doing so could cause another forest fire. Luke simply responds that, if that were to happen, it would be all Mieu's fault, disregarding the fact that he (Luke) was giving the orders. At first, this appears to be yet another example of Luke's stupidity and irresponsibility, but It becomes both this trope and a FunnyAneurysmMoment when [[spoiler: Akzeriuth is destroyed]].

** Importantly, it takes the nature of the setting, and shows just what kind of society would evolve due to the fact that a comprehensive prophecy that is ''always right'' exists, completely revolves around it, and takes it very close to its horrifyingly logical conclusion.
