* CosmicKeystone: Four of the worlds of Yggdrasil have a powerful relic that sustains their world: Midgard has the Dragon Orb, Asgard has Gungnir, Alfheim has the Sylvain Bow, and Niflheim has the Demon Sword Levantine. If the treasure is removed from the world, it will slowly fall into destruction unless some sort of stabilizing element can take its place. [[spoiler:Odin has Hrist seize the Dragon Orb from Midgard when he realizes Dipan is learning forbidden magics, in addition to preparing for Ragnarok.]]

** Lezard reveals that [[spoiler:Odin]] is half elf, which explains why he could grow stronger as [[spoiler:gods]] tend to remain static with their divine power.
** [[spoiler:Lenneth becomes one as per Ending A (and the ending that is considered canon to Valkyrie Profile: Silmeria). After rescuing her essence from Hrist, Lezard and Mystina placed her into the remaining homunculus that Lenneth spared and Mystina stole. This gave Lenneth power to become the Creator]].

* BreakMeter: While there is no visible meter per se, you do see the special effects whenever the enemy blocks changing color from white to red whenever they block succeeding attacks. It means that repeatedly attacking a blocking enemy will eventually result in a ''Guard Break'', stunning them.[[labelnote:note]]If you continue attacking the enemy after the guard break but before the stun animation, the enemy will be stunned ''after'' you finish your attacks![[/labelnote]] This is even highlighted in the tutorial dungeon's boss.



* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: During the Sacred Phase, Grega says: "Do you wish to know the status of our Einherjar?" and Immediately after choosing one to view: "You wish to know his/her status?"

* DiscOneNuke: The Element and Ether Scepters. They can do incredible damage: unfortunately, they break if you use Great Magic (and the unbreakable ones don't pop up until later in the game). But since they are much more powerful than standard staves, even using normal-version spells from the menu when they are equipped is enough to one-shot most encounters in chapters 1-3.

** There is an item called Tome of Alchemy which immediately turns all non-boss enemies (barring very few ones) into crystals. Not only do you instantly kill them for their experience, but you also gain bonus multipliers from said crystals (and rarely, a chest). These tomes are given to you occasionally or through dungeon-delving. So the seemingly scary duo of Dragon Zombies become piñatas.

* EvolvingAttack: Lenneth's signature attack has three levels, the final of which is only available against the FinalBoss and the Bonus Dungeon.

to:

* EvolvingAttack: Lenneth's signature attack has three levels, the final of which is only available against the FinalBoss and the Bonus Dungeon. You get different versions depending on the weapon Lenneth equips. General rule of thumb is that if the weapon allows three attacks, it usually allows her to use the second level of Nibelung Valesti (with few exceptions, for instance the sword Valkyrie Favor only gives the first level version despite allowing for three attacks). The bonus weapons in Seraphic Gate are the only ones that allow the third level of the finisher.


Added DiffLines:

** Nibelung Valesti itself is a corruption of what seemed to be Nibelung Velocity.


Added DiffLines:

* InTheBack: When a character passes through the enemy (usually because of an attack, like say Lenneth's Moment Slide), the character will be behind the enemy and any follow-up attack he or she will do will be a successful, unblockable attack.
** There's also a skill that lets your character turn around to hit the enemy from behind.


Added DiffLines:

** A small section of the Forest of Spirits loops you until you get the right path.


Added DiffLines:

* UnblockableAttack:
** Magic is unblockable and unavoidable.
** Certain attacks are also unblockable

Added DiffLines:

** Of course, there are perks with heroes being recruited at Level 1. It means that you can prop them with two accessories - one that grants permanent 100 increase in DME when leveling up, and one that adds more CP when leveling up. This means you can actually maximize your heroes even if they come later.

* KatanasAreJustBetter: Averted; katanas are among the worst weapons in the game. The one exception is the Dragonbane katana, which is a very powerful early-game weapon for mages, and is unequippable by your party's samurai.

* ManOfAThousandVoices: Well, not quite, but the English version of the game uses eleven voice actors (all from TAJ Productions aka {{4KidsEntertainment}}, which in general has a small acting pool) to voice the LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, including the extra voices heard during sequences when Lenneth picks up a new Einherjar. The most used actress is Tara Jayne; she voices all three of the sorceresses from [[{{Wutai}} Hai-Lan]], the boy archer Llewelyn, and most of the secondary female voices heard during Spiritual Concentration sequences. Creator/EricStuart has the fewest characters voiced, but they differ significantly from each other vocally (Lucian sounds like [[{{Franchise/Pokemon}} Brock]], while Grey has a deep, [[LargeHam hammier]] voice).

* BaitAndSwitch: After spending the game watching the mercenary Celia lose her comrades one by one (all of them joining your party as Einherjar) and becoming increasingly aggrieved by these losses, at the last event where its just her and her nemesis she and the others had been hunting the whole game, you spend the entire event thinking this is finally her moment to die and become an Einherjar. [[spoiler:It isn't. Its Grey, the man she and the others were hunting due to a miscommunication, who joins Lenneth after the ritual he was attempting goes wrong and kills him. The last we ever see of Celia is her sobbing over Grey's empty armor all alone. Poor Celia.]]
