* InformedAbility: Played straight with poor Samantha, who's a Commander in the Crimson Blades but gets zero chance to shine in battle. Subverted with Callo, whom we see being every bit the epic Inquisitor that Heldricht says she is, in spite of her being taken hostage at the start!

* InformedAbility: Played straight with poor Samantha, who's a Commander in the Crimson Blades but gets zero chance to shine in battle. Subverted battle, and with Callo, whom we see being every bit the epic Inquisitor that Heldricht says she is, in spite of her being Callo Merlose, who gets taken hostage at immediately and relies on a [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands psychic power newly-awakened by Lea Monde]] to do her job anyway. That's not to say they're clearly incapable, but since Samantha is never shown using any abilities related to her position and Merlose is forced to TakeAThirdOption because of her kidnapping, we don't actually see them use any of the start!skills we're told that they have. Merlose suffers from this especially, since her mind-reading can barely be detected, let alone resisted, without some degree of magical understanding: we don't see her doing any of the mundane inquisition work she's supposed to be famous for because she gets a handy cheat for it right off the bat.

Creator/SquareSoft's ''Vagrant Story'' is a genre-defying, stat-based UsefulNotes/PlayStation RPG by videogame auteur YasumiMatsuno. It is available as a downloadable [=PSOne=] Classic on the UsefulNotes/PlayStationNetwork.

''Vagrant Story'' is the tale of Ashley Riot, a knight who works for the kingdom of Valendia during the [[MedievalEuropeanFantasy dark ages]] of [[IvaliceAlliance Ivalice]]. But Ashley is no ordinary agent: he is one of the Parliament's elite Riskbreakers, a OneManArmy trained for the most dangerous black-ops and infiltration missions.

The story is connected to the IvaliceAlliance, with numerous references the previous Ivalice game ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'', and references back to ''Vagrant Story'' in later installments. It could be considered a standalone NonLinearSequel to ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', and as such, part of the [[RunningGag God-punchingly popular]] ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series. As for its canonicity, though, Matsuno has stated that these references are just meant to be fanservice, and that the game should be treated as a standalone story rather than as part of the Ivalice world.

So, ''don't press start until after you see the first save point. ''
Oh, also. Like many Japanese Playstation games, Circle is "confirm" and X is "cancel".

See also ''[[VideoGame/CrimsonShroud Crimson Shroud]]'', a SpiritualSuccessor that shares some of the same terminology and lore.

* AuthorAppeal: AkihikoYoshida likes bondage gear. And piercings. And amputation, skin removal, torture... and of course, as he has admitted himself, butts.

Added DiffLines:

** The enemies can't move during an attack, and with good timing you can chain attacks indefinitely, only each attack is weaker than the last. With enough patience you can kill almost anything by cherry tapping, including bosses, which is [[DifficultButAwesome Difficult but...]] [[BoringButPractical Boring]].
