* 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.

* StealthBasedMission: A few of them require you to sneak around, get from Point A to B or elude guards. Some are easier than others when you have tranquilizer arrows on hand, and others require that you don't bash a guard's skull in with the blunt end of your sword. * TheStoic: Yurick in the early game. Later on he starts to loosen up.

* RingOut: Depending on the lay of terrain, sometimes you can knock an enemy off a cliff to kill them. This is important while climbing the Tower of Trials, where you come against a few enemies completely immune to physical attacks.

** Subverted in one dungeon where you fight aquatic enemies -- your party members point out that kicking ''aquatic'' monsters into the ''water'' isn't going to do much, and sure enough, they climb back out.

** The FiveManBand is very similar to the one in ''VideoGame/BlueDragon'', another Mistwalker RPG. Add Mirania and Dagran, and they're similar to ''VideoGame/Chrono Trigger'''s playables.

** During the FinalBoss battle, Yurick gets his Meteor upgraded to "Big Bang", which shatters the boss's impervious barrier ForMassiveDamage. Unlike Calista's Ancient Summon, this one he ''can'' use repeatedly... but only during that battle, [[PlayableEpilogue not after]].

* ItOnlyWorksOnce: During the battle against Sentinel Beast Atar, Calista can perform the "Ancient Summons" rite, but only once. (Fortunately, once is all you need.) Then there is the battle against the Last Cocoon, where a large sword hanging in the arena can be dropped on the boss ForMassiveDamage, but you only get one attempt at knocking it down.

* [[PunchAWall Kick A Wall]]: Zael has a tendency to kick walls. And this opens them. Syrenne and Lowell comment on how often he kicks walls open. He doesn't do this out of anger however, just convenience. Lowell tries this later and it ends badly for him.



* [[OminousLatinChanting Ominous Japanese Chanting]]: The final battle theme, "The One Who Rules All." Potential spoilers.
