* LostForever:
** While you can replay ''most'' dungeons at any time to pick up missed items, there are certain rare items (in non-repeatable dungeons) you can miss out on if you don't find some way of acquiring them the first trip through.
** At one point, you can explore Lazulis City at night time. There is a sidequest about a drunk man near the Flame and Lizard that is only available during those hours.
** The only way to get the Fast Bow is by defeating Lesser Shade in less than four minutes. If you defeat it within a longer time, you'll just receive a regular Bowgun.
** There are even ''optional chapters'' that are missable at key points, namely 20, 21, 25 (these three after 31), 24 (if 20 isn't done), 42 and 43 (if the player skips directly to 44, which will trigger the game's finale and take the player to NewGamePlus).



** Any other character can be fanservice due to fully customizable clothing. Two Key Items that you earn later make this possible: Shocking Bleach and Stimulating Bleach. They make armor completely invisible.

* PaperThinDisguise: Calista only wore a traveler's robe over her vivid blue dress, yet when she lectures two knights for stealing food from a merchant they were bullying, they don't seem to recognize her. She only gets away with it because Lord Arganan has kept her locked away for so long that hardly anyone outside of the castle knows what she even looks like.
** Meanwhile, Zael has ''no'' excuse when a mysterious cloaked figure (in the same cloak!) appearing to help fight off some of Jirall's assassins or spring him from jail.

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler: The knights who participated in the slaughter and pillaging of the civilian Gurak island never really get punished for it.]] While it's hard to say who's guilty and who's not since they all wear the same armor, one guy who definitely gets off scot-free [[spoiler: is Baron Huge, a.k.a. he of the AnnoyingLaugh. He can be found in the post-game wandering around the lower levels of Lazulis castle, having survived the final Gurak attack.]]

* ProtagonistJourneyToVillain: One of the main themes of the game, according to WordOfGod. [[spoiler:The character in question is Dagran, whose single-minded pursuit of revenge and determination to protect himself from reprisal drives him further and further down the slippery slope]].
** [[spoiler:Zael also counts, but that's largely due to Dagran pushing him down the slippery slope against his will in order to further his aforementioned revenge plot. To Dagran's credit, he gets Zael to within microseconds of crossing the MoralEventHorizon before Zael redeems himself]].

** One of the weapons you can win online, the Prophet, can't be called anything but a [[KingdomHearts Keyblade]].

** The very title of the game might be a shout out to ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' itself - both titles essentially mean "the last one in a series of fictional happenings". (with some GallowsHumor as like ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'', Mistwalker would probably have gone down under if the game tanked. In both cases, that wasn't the case).

* GladiatorGames / MonsterArena: There is a large battle arena in Lazulis City where the party can go grind Exp, Gold and win rare items. This is useful considering the ability to revisit previous maps only lets you grind items and gold, but not Experience Points.

* LeakedExperience / AntiGrinding: Don't fret about party members sitting on the sidelines while the rest of your party is off fighting monsters and progressing the plot; they'll earn proportionately higher experience during their first few battles back on the team and catch up in no time. Inversely, though you ''can'' summon infinite waves of enemies from Summon Circles, the experience they yield abruptly drops after a certain point.

* SwallowedWhole: This can happen to your party members via three bosses, the Mystic Spider, the Gold Spider and the Queen of Abyss (a giant lizard/dinosaur/flaming t-rex thing). Not getting swallowed is ideal. You can prevent this by using Zael's Wind Spell when your team-mates are trapped in webbing.

Not getting swallowed is ideal...except in the case of the Gold Spider -- while you're in its belly, waving the analog stick makes Zael attack from within, doing hugely ''increased'' damage compared to attacking from outside.
