* BavarianFireDrill: At the ball introducing Calista as Jirall's bride-to-be, she leaves the room and goes outside. Zael tries to follow but it stopped by a knight who demands he returns to his post. Dagran then smoothly comes in to cover for Zael by informing the guard that there was a change to the roster and that they should talk it over, leaving Zael free to go outside.

** The Gurak also resemble Dark Elves a bit, with their dark grey skin, and (usually)white hair. They also are magically talented, which is uncommon for the average orc-like species in fiction. The common, {{mook}} variety looks quite a lot like the dark elf enemies from FinalFantasyI [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV and IV]], when without masks, while the more handsome and important ones, like the brothers Zepha and Zesha, could be easily mistaken for [[TabletopGame/DungeonsandDragons Drow.]]

** One of the Muruk incarnations (a giant turtle) comes flying into the Arena, spinning like {{Gamera}}. The citizenry is completely horrified, while the party is baffled as to how a turtle that big could fly by spinning.

* SquishyWizard: You actually ''can'' equip mages with heavy armor, but the fact remains that if they take any damage while preparing to cast a spell, it interrupts them and they have to start over. This at least works both ways: You can interrupt enemy mages to prevent them from casting spells, too, and even from the early game you pick up "Wizard Slayer" arrows that nail them ForMassiveDamage.

* SwordPlant: Some bosses require Zael to run up walls or perform a Quick Time Event action to kill them by jumping and planting his sword into their head/chest. This is taken to a ridiculous level against the Last Cocoon boss if Zael can successfully drop a ginormous sword on it, skewering it to the ground, so that Zael can the climb up the boss and [[AttackItsWeakPoint stab it in the face]] [[ForMassiveDamage for 99999 damage]], which he repeats until it is dead.

** Towards the end of the game, in a case of GameplayAndStoryintegration, [[spoiler:the Knights invade the Gurak continent and gleefully raid it. Instead of finding items and equipment in chests, the player can find a cooking pot, a comb, and a doll and choose to take them anyway.]] However, this also results in PermanentlyMissableContent.

* 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.
