* TheEvilsOfFreeWill: Kurt and his father get into a heated discussion about independence and the role of the Iskandar Knighthood in society at the beginning of his story. [[KirkSummation Kurt tries to explain to his father that people can adapt]], but all he does is [[IHaveNoSon disown his son]] [[TautologicalTemplar in response]].

Added DiffLines:

* KnightTemplar: The Iskandar Knighthood's Temple Knight branch is chock-full of holier-than-thous that toll postal workers, take jobs from mercenaries and treat their colleagues like dirt. [[SarcasmMode And they're the]] [[NominalHero good guys]].
* KnightTemplarParent: A literal example. Maximillian Burgundy is Kurt's ArchnemesisDad AND the leader of the Iskandar Knighthood. He's heavily implied to have been ''much stricter'' with Kurt than his brother Leon.

Added DiffLines:

* PercentDamageAttack: Replace "Attack" with "Support Spell" and you've described 75% of Wood Arts, which operate on set rates rather than stats, which is why increasing the Wood Elemental stat is useless; Only the amazingly-rare Thunder spells attached to it rely on those numbers in the first place.

** [[spoiler: Yun]]'s more of a straightforward example. He only wanted to be a mage of equal caliber to Leith Torles and didn't seem to have any malicious intent, but chose to pursue such power by [[spoiler: nearly condemning an entire tribe of PettingZooPeople to their deaths by absconding with the magical rain-making equipment that HE helped to find]]. He's EasilyForgiven.



** 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]]
* EvilSorcerer: With a name like [[spoiler: Clyde Blackstorm]], you're begging for it. [[spoiler: [[WouldHurtAChild Being willing to assassinate a little girl to get a magic slab probably does you NO favors.]]]].

* EasilyForgiven: Exaggerated. After [[spoiler: Armic's party defeats Yun and Chaos]], the only response to the fact that [[spoiler: [[AmbitionIsEvil Yun tried to murder him and steal all of his items for ultimate power]]]] is something along the lines of "I can relate, fights over fish get weird" before [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere just going home]].
* EvilSorcerer: [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast With a name like like]] [[spoiler: Clyde Blackstorm]], you're begging for it. [[spoiler: [[WouldHurtAChild Being willing to assassinate a little girl to get a magic slab probably does you NO favors.]]]].



* 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. [[note]]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.[[/note]]

* GoMadFromTheIsolation: Kurt's brother Leon gets assigned to guard-duty within the [[AncientTomb Vaftom Mausoleum]]. It's implied that the isolation from his re-location (And Kurt's [[TheWanderer recent banishment]]) causes him to develop [[GreenEyedMonster jealousy toward his brother so great]] that he [[spoiler: sends assassins after his own father]] and [[spoiler: if Kurt maxes out the Gauntlet, attacks him at Starship Anchor]].

** Armic also qualifies. He's only on his quest because his Village Chief ordered him to undertake it.



* ReluctantHero: Armic's only looking for the items to save his village because his Chief ordered him to.



** Gameplay-wise, Wood elemental spells can end up as this. Thunderbringer is a VERY rare spell, (Unless you have Norff recruited) and it's the only attack spell worth a damn in the Wood line-up. [[note]]Unless you have Magic Blender, in which case it becomes the required basis for stronger spells.[[/note]] If you never find it, 75% of Wood magic immediately becomes useless.

There's a reason nearly every FAQ for the game online warns you not to increase your Wood stat without it.

* GiantMook: Among them is a giant version of the level 1 beast monster and the giant version of the piranha monster.

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Vearst in-story is a coward who can't fight to save his life. In battle, [[StoneWall he has the second-highest Endurance in the game, the highest LP count of any character in Ventus' story]], and has a decent Water growth. A consistent tank that [[DamagerHealerTank can probably heal you if you develop him?]] Yes, please! Also a case of [[GameplayandStorySegregation GameplayandStorySegregation]].

* LevelScaling: Subverted. The Growth Panel system doesn't have Levels for characters to gain. However, there is a monster ecosystem in the game. The more enemies you kill, the higher the chance of stronger variants of existing enemy types spawning, eventually becoming the new norm. The Monster Rank can go as high as 10, where [[BossInMookClothing sub-bosses of the game will start being encountered as regular enemies].

* BossInMookClothing: Rainbow Guckies. They have almost as much LP as the final boss. And borderline maximum HP Defense. And multiple forms. [[OverlyLongGag And can Paralyze you]]. [[SarcasmMode Have fun!]]
** Enemies at Monster Rank 10 qualify, as many of them can be re-skins of sub-quest bosses you've fought previously.
