* DummiedOut: The game's such an ObviousBeta that loads of features either don't work or are clunkily integrated. (See: The Reel System for Chests/Traps, for instance.)
** A potential example is the [[spoiler: Arcanian Mech]]that Kurt fights [[spoiler: during his final quest at Starship Anchor]]. [[note]]The Mech has three attacks, Field Inducer, Plasma Shower and Aerial Cruiser. However, Field Inducer has three seperate animations: A head-butt, a swipe of Leon's sword (only seen if Leon is atop the mech) and the charging up of a seperate cannon. The cannon animation is out-of-place and drawn-out for something minute and comboable. This implies that either A) an extra attack was planned and never implemented or B) the extra animation was a garbage-set they had forgotten to remove post-development. Note that this error concerning the cannon animation persists whether Leon is atop the Mech or not.[[/note]]



* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler: Yun Crimsonrain]] at the end of Armic's quest. For no adequately explained reason, he [[spoiler: attacks Armic's party at the Flying Islands]] to prevent the Chapa from controlling the weather through the Tablet they want to save their village from drought with. (FantasticRacism is implied in his defeat audio, but since the game's an ObviousBeta, a LOT of things are left unexplained....like why he even bothered to help Armic at all if this was an issue of concern.)

Added DiffLines:

** Oh, Kurt only gains strength from his Gauntlet Panel in ''his'' story, by the way. In Judy's story, he lacks any means of improving it. He remains gimped as a party member.

* AntiFrustrationFeature: In Armic's quest, if you end up in a situation in which [[UnwinnableByDesign all side and main quests are completed without having reached the item list quota]], (Or lacking a method to reach it, as shops/markets are only shuffled when a quest is done) [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything speaking to the Village Chief in Chapa Village will grant you access to the Secret Dungeon]]. Aside from Judy and Mythe, the other characters can access this too; but only in Armic's story does it serve a purpose.

* {{Acrofatic}} - For some weird reason, Roy is the character with the lightest weight in the game, allowing to use light martial arts easily even when equipped with heavy gears.
* AdamSmithHatesYourGuts - Averted. What is sold through the game is not related to location but instead of what material the item is made of.

* AfterBossRecovery - You get a free HP and LP refill once in the game. If some of your characters lost all of their LP, they get revived and get one. The catch? [[spoiler: You have to fight the final boss and it's tougher than anything you had to face before.]]

* ArtificialHuman - [[spoiler: The Silver Haired Girl]]
* AnIcePerson - Grace knows practically every Water spell in the game, outside of the Blendables. [[BlessedWithSuck Water is ironically her weakest Element]].
* AntiClimax - Players who have played Judy's story are aware of the [[spoiler: Forbidden Spell]] subplot. At the end of Armic's story, guess what the penultimate boss can use? It's been built up as the ultimate spell, but....It's just [[spoiler: a palette swap of the Shock spell with a black background that does only 1 LP damage to whatever is hit]]. [[FlatWhat What.]]
* AntiGrinding - There are only so many side-quests players can take. It is totally possible to do everything available to you and be forced into doing a character's final adventure just to leave the hub screens. This makes planning out skill distribution even more important.

* BadassFamily - Judy and her family. Her entire quest revolves around gathering everyone up to take out the guy responsible for scattering them in the first place.
* BadassGrandpa - Josef, Judy's grandfather. [[spoiler: He may be [[SealedGoodInACan sealed in a mirror]] for most of her quest, but gets to join just in time for her final battle.]]
* BareFistedMonk - Any character with an overabundance of Melee Panels can be turned into this. Armand's the best example, as he has an extremely high Strength Making and comes with no equipment to his name.

* BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind - The Gauntlet battles. [[spoiler: Subverted as you eventually learn that instead you get teleported and fight in a moment so short that about no one notice.]]
* BlessedWithSuck - Kurt's gauntlet makes him even stronger, but it's constantly dragging him into [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind battles]]... Roughly every twenty minutes, in fact. In ''actual play time'', mind.

* BonusBoss - The Rainbow Gucky which randomly appear in a NewGamePlus. [[BossInMookClothing While it looks like a regular Gucky on the map]], it is quite a deal stronger than one and will randomly morph into different type of Guckies, using different attacks based on them. Thankfully, that monster won't go actively after your character and will even run away from it if you're too weak [[http://youtu.be/-zzICa38udA?t=3m17s although some times the game geography will not allow it]]. It's also the only monster dropping Forbidden Magic Tablets.
* BoringYetPractical - The Sinker attack. While it won't do much damage, it lowers your opponent Strenght, making it a must at the beginning of long battles. Also, being a Level 2 kick skill available on all type of martial arts, it's easily available on several levels and don't cost any weapon durability either.
* BossInMookClothing - Rainbow Guckies. Also, the level 10 mooks might qualify as well.
* BreakableWeapons - All weapons but one (including shields and accessories allowing to cast spells) have durability points. If it reach 0, it can still be used in the current battle (merciful against bosses) but not the next one. The Quick Fix panel allow you to restore the durability of unequipped weapons up to 20 but if you mess up, it lower it instead. The Recycle spell will raise the durability of equipped weapons up to 30. And finally, for a more durable option, you can forge weapons's durability up to 99 if you have access to the proper blacksmith. To put things in perspective, you use 5 attacks in a battle round, most attacks cost 1 durability, some cost 2 although they are worth the extra cost... usually.

* CharacterCustomization - And how!
* {{Combos}} - Players and opponents alike can chain any attack to deal big damage. However, if an opponent break your combo, you will only use a level 1 attack.

Parts of his quest involve him making deliveries; in addition, he can take several optional {{Side Quest}}s of this nature. While other characters can recruit him during their stories, [[GuideDangIt they still can't access these special quests themselves]].
* CursedWithAwesome - Seriously, you don't have any excuse to not spark any Level 4 arts with Kurt with all the gauntlet battles thrown at him. Especially since the last one is against the monster with the highest spark rank in the game.

* DiskOneNuke - Guns and magic. Early in the game, they'll easily one shot most opponents. In the case of guns, all you need is a gun and a gun panel on your character, no tech are needed to be spaked. As for magic, it's not that it is bad in the end of the game but it will require more efforts than for physical attacks. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfGUGzKobSA&feature=channel_video_title But done well the result can be surprising]].
** Bows and Daggers can be this, depending on your luck with the Spark rates. Getting the Level 3 or 4 Warning Shot/Blitz attacks at any point in the game (usually when fighting a hard boss) renders almost every standard enemy moot due to the semi-frequent InstantDeath effect.
* EvolvingAttack - Sometime, when using a basic physical attack, your character will "spark" a improved version of that attack which can be used again if you time the reel right to land on a higher level attack. For example, by using the Random Arrowshot which shoot a volley of arrow at the enemy group, you might eventually spark the Rain of Arrows attack or the Parashots attack which shoot homing energy shot at every opponent. To make it happen more easily, you fight stronger monsters which have an higher spark rank and equip weapon panels which make it easier to spark those attack and then much, much easier to land on a high level attack on the reel.

* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler: Yun Crimsonrain]] at the end of Armic's quest. For no adequately explained reason, he [[spoiler: attacks Armic's party at the Flying Islands]] to prevent the Chapa from controlling the weather through the Tablet they want to save their village from drought with. (FantasticRacism is implied in his defeat audio, but since the game's an ObviousBeta, a LOT of things are left unexplained....like why he even bothered to help Armic at all if this was an issue of concern)

* FlowerMotifs - Concept art of the characters depict them standing next to reliefs of various species of flowers, which ostensibly is some form of clue to their basic personality.
** These flower motifs also appear as the backgrounds on the maps they move on.
* FortuneTeller - Sapphire and Ruby, though Ruby doesn't have her sister's talent for the art.
** Actually, Sapphire points out that Ruby's powers are greater than hers. Ruby's flaws lie in her people skills.

* BonusBoss - The Rainbow Gucky which randomly appear in a NewGamePlus. While it looks like a regular Gucky on the map, it is quite a deal stronger than one and will randomly morph into different type of Guckies, using different attacks based on them. Thankfully, that monster won't go actively after your character and will even run away from it if you're too weak [[http://youtu.be/-zzICa38udA?t=3m17s although some times the game geography will not allow it]]. It's also the only monster dropping Forbidden Magic Tablets.

* GlassCanon - Michelle has the highest growth stat for both the strenght and skill stat, allowing her to do a ton of damage, especially with [[GameBreaker light martial arts]]. The catch? She has the game's lowest LP.

** Phantom does an absurd amount of damage but thankfully is not that tanky compared to some other late game bosses, making the fight a race of outdamaging your opponent while surviving.

** It gets better. The locations of both his magic and best elemental stats (water) unlike several characters are not in conflict, allowing you to build as one of the best if not the best water mage in the game. Get a high level attack water spell like Ice needle and you will rain destruction on your opponents!
