* 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.

* TheRedMage: Meru is a straight example, being useful for offensive magic, but also gains a healing spell.

** Also, in the small port city of Fueno, there is a spot where pressing the action button causes Dart to wave to the fourth wall, ie, the player.

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.

** Note the clothing that everyone wears, as well as the colour of their menu screen. Guess who will be getting what dragoon spirit, eventually! Somewhat subverted in that this is a ForegoneConclusion, and that it's possible to not get Kongol's dragoon spirit until the final dungeon.

* ThereAreNoCoincidences: Haschel's joining the party to find his daughter, Claire. Dart's mother is named Claire. Haschel recognises a song Shana sings as something Claire sings. A flashback shows Dart's mother, and when Claire is seen in a younger form in the finale, she [[spoiler: has purple hair - just like Dart's mother in the flashback.]] Do the math.

** Kongol's dragoon spirit is the result of a sidequest, and [[GuideDangIt requires you to backtrack to an area you've already been to for no inherently-obvious reason]]. Because of this, it's possible to go all the way to the entire dungeon without obtaining it. If this happens, he will get it right there.
** There actually is an accessory that will change Meru's dodge animation to her dancing.


Added DiffLines:

** When Shirley is giving Dart and Lavitz a SecretTestOfCharacter, she at one point transforms into Albert. [[spoiler: Note that he is wearing green, and has a lance.]]
** When Lenus is cornered, Dart tells her that there's no escape. Lenus looks to Meru, points to her and says "What do you think?" before flying away. When she is finally killed, the ending cutscene puts a ''lot'' of focus on Meru for some bizarre reason... [[spoiler: Because they are both Winglies]].
** Note the appearance of Dart's mother... then compare her to an endgame boss.

** When Shirley gives Dart and Lavitz a SecretTestOfCharacter, she "transforms" into Shana and Albert. Shana uses her battle model, yet this is the first time that the player has seen a close-up look at Albert. [[spoiler: Take note that he is wearing green and wields a spear...]]

** Subverted in Disc 2 - Haschel and Dart muse that there is a bridge called the Claire Bridge. It's a RedHerring - this bridge's origin is never truly specified, so it really ''is'' a coincidence.

* RageAgainstTheHeavens: Subverted. Turns out part of the world's creation included [[spoiler:a plan to destroy the world and start anew]]. Time to ScrewDestiny, then. However, 'screwing destiny' here means [[spoiler:destroy the tool to destroy the world, rather than go up to heaven and then kick the creator's ass, but mission still accomplished as everyone is still free from the plans of the dickish creator.]]
