* BadassGrandpa: Haschel is this. At 60 years old (according to the instruction manual), he is still strong enough to come in third in the Hero Competition and spry enough to front flip over a dead body and two of your characters just to turn around and lay out one of them with a single, quick gut punch.
** Made almost comical by [[spoiler:the fact that as the game progresses, you find more and more evidence that hints at Claire, Haschel's daughter, is in fact Dart's mother.]]

* BrokenAesop: A minor example. Lavitz claims [[spoiler:that his revenge on Grehem didn't solve anything.]] However, to quote LetsPlay/HCBailly:

* CheckPointStarvation:
** The game is usually good at averting this, though there is one rather backhanded instance of it. At [[spoiler:the Moon]] during the PartyScattering, one group lets [[spoiler:Kongol]] fight a DuelBoss and then treks through a long path with no save point in it back to the hub area where you ''know'' there is one, and then cue {{cutscene}}. Yep, instead of letting you access the save point that's ''right in front of you'', the game then switches to the ''other'' group that got separated, which ''also'' has a long path to follow with no save point in it and a boss to fight at the end. The path to the hub is before that boss, but [[spoiler:Rose]] pretty much just says [[NPCRoadblock "No."]] until the boss is dead. And ''both'' of the bosses are rather difficult! ''Not funny, Sony!''
** It's also worth noting that ''none'' of the save points, not even the final one, heal and cure your party. Odd considering how standard, even back then, this is for [=JRPGs=].

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: [[spoiler: Shana has voice clips and animations for all dragoon magic. Similarly, Lavitz also has animations and voice clips for additions and dragoon magic he would never learn at the point of the game he is in.]]

* GoshDangItToHeck: The game often uses "rowdy person/people" in contexts which would suggest "bastard" or an equivalent would be more appropriate.

* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Only seven dragons exist but there are hundreds of Virages. Guess which was more powerful during the Dragon Campaign.



** When Doel claims to be acting under orders of Emperor Diaz (who died 11,000 years ago), Rose says "Silly" in much the same way one would say "Bullshit."



* HitchhikerHeroes: Played with. The shear amount of coincidences involving how the characters meet up acquire their Dragoon spirits leads to Rose voicing the opinion that there may be higher powers at work.

Added DiffLines:

** During a cutscene, a dragon is shown easily taking out dozens of Virage at once.


Added DiffLines:

** When Haschel gains his dragoon spirit, Rose first notes what an unusual coincidence it is before suggesting it's fate. She later reveals a legend that states dragoons are naturally drawn to each other.

* ConvectionSchmonvection: Early on the party jumps over a series of rocks in a pool of lava. No one so much as expresses discomfort over the heat.

* AntiGrinding: Non-boss enemies hand out pitiful amounts of XP while Additions and Dragoon levels are easy enough to level up that you don't even need to grind.

** Emperor Doel 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.

** 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.

*** "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.
