* BackgroundBoss: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] with Gossie. The enormous, [[BreathWeapon fire-breathing]] two-headed dragon looks quite menacing, but it's actually a friendly creature. The real boss are the Hitoderons, the smaller starfish monsters in the foreground.

The dolls' circling is timed so that they stop as soon as the nursery rhyme is finished. Now, to be fair, this is a very tricky thing to translate. There are a few ways one could go about this:

** For starters, Elle was called Célina in French, Melina in German, and Naomi in Spanish. The French version changed many more names (For some reason referring to the Elder as Agar, and unlike the Japanese and English versions, referring to Loire as "Anjou", and Freedom with the not-so-subtle "New York"), but still manages to remain an otherwise decent, if not abridged, accurate retelling of the game. Unfortunately not the same thing could be said about the German localization by Carl Moyse, which coupled all of the above (Yomi going by "Fluffy", anyone?) and heavy Woolseyism.

* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: In typical Quintet fashion, almost all the bosses are these. The only aversions are the parasite plaguing the Ra Tree, the FinalBoss.

* UselessUsefulSpell: The only time you'll use spells is when fighting Bloody Mary, because every other boss fight flat-out ''disables'' your magic [[NoSell for no real reason]]. A shame, because the magic you get is actually pretty darned powerful.

A shame, because the magic you get is actually pretty darned powerful. You ''can'' use magic against [[ScaryScorpions Shadowkeeper]], the boss of the 5th tower in the Underworld, and a spray from a Fire Ring can almost finish him in one shot.

* BeneathTheEarth: The Underworld.

* BeneathTheEarth: The Underworld. It's actually on the ''inside'' of the HollowWorld, which is why the world map curves away around you as you traverse it, and you cross over to the Overworld by jumping into a giant hole.

* AnachronismStew: At the start of the game the continents have yet to form, then the, the player character, goes to the surface and creates plants, then birds, then mammals. Then as you progress through the game you visit progressively more technologically advanced towns going from primitive huts through the discovery of America and invention of such wonders as the light-bulb, through to a future with robots and cures for all disease. The thing is all these towns exist simultaneously on the world map and you can go back and forth between them at will. This is justified in the game itself by suggesting that time isn't quite right.
