** Also [[spoiler:Rose, as the Black Monster]]. She's spent the last eleven thousand years periodically [[spoiler:slaughtering the Moon Children]] and anyone unlucky enough to be in the same vicinity -- all for the sake of preventing the apocalypse.
** Emperor Doel also qualifies, as it's revealed that his ambition was [[WellIntentionedExtremist to create a world where all species were equal]]; his fratricide against Carlo he justifies by pointing out what a weak ruler Carlo was, being endlessly manipulated by his corrupt ministers. The unnamed general also claims that Doel used to be less tyrannical before he [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope Jumped Off The Slippery Slope]], possibly due to [[spoiler: Lloyd's]] manipulations and the death of his wife.

*** "Demon's Gate" starts with Rose "dropping" several nuggets of concentrated darkness, then levitating around a black laser beam while a portal to the underworld forms between her legs. Paging Dr. Freud?

* {{Stripperific}}: Meru's outfit, which consists of a ShowgirlSkirt, a bikini-style top, sandals, and not much else, leaving her [[BareYourMidriff midriff bared]] and her [[ShesGotLegs legs on prominent display]]. The fact that it's rendered in the UsefulNotes/PlayStation's rather blocky graphics mean that it isn't very salacious, though.

* CripplingOverspecialization: Shana and Miranda suffer from this, being specialised as TheWhiteMage. They do get some good payoff late-game, but even then may still lag behind all the other party members for the fact that their offensive options are limited to inventory items and scratch damage. If the game did not cap the party at only three characters, they probably would have seen more use.

Despite a lukewarm critical reception, the game sold well and went on to become a CultClassic, with a {{troperiffic}} plot that manages to shift smoothly between humor, [[NarmCharm narm]], and some genuinely moving moments. Think ''[[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Power Rangers]]'' meets ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' and you're in the right ball park.
