* BadAss: Arngrim takes out dozens of soldiers, and dies by committing suicide rather than have a last stand. Considering he's a CaptainErsatz for Guts, it's about to be expected.
** Actually, most playable characters in the game either start as or eventually become badasses. Arngrim is only the most notorious.

* GoodBadTranslation: "It shall be engraved upon your soul!" may have been "I shall annihilate your soul" in the original Japanese. As the original scripts are not available, and the difference between the two is a single character, this may be a case of MisBlamed, however.
** The Japanese line is actually "sono mi ni kizame" (その身に刻め), which literally means "it shall be engraved upon your ''body''" - but the switch to "soul" in the English version can probably be attributed to localization liberties.
** "STEP ON IT PUSH BUTTON", on the other hand...

** Some of the names were misspelled (which often happened in several old games), while others were just changed without knowing the wiser. For example, Bloodbane was clearly meant to be Jormungand, the earth dragon who fought against Thor, and the Demon Sword Levantine was a possible misspell of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%C3%A6vateinn Lævateinn]], a real mythological weapon in Norse Mythology, said to be capable of killing gods (in the original myths, the weapon is used to kill Baldr, Odin's son, which were interpreted not only as mistletoe's stem, but also a sword).

''Lævateinn'' is usually recognized as mistletoe's stem, mistletoe twig, but also the name is etymologically originated as the Norse ''kenning'' (basically epithet) for a sword).

* DoesNotLikeMen: Aelia, though this is justified since she is not a human. This is more of an InformedFlaw, since it never comes up on cutscenes and she never mantions it.

* LargeHam: The invocations on about 75% of the Purify Weird Soul moves. Plus, there's several of Lenneth's InTheNameOfTheMoon speeches to villains. [[spoiler:To little surprise, Loki does this as well in the path to the best ending. You could argue that [[HamOnHamCombat the final boss battle is over the right to become the patron God/Goddess of Ham.]] ]]

* GratuitousEnglish: The game's subtitle ("Should Deny the Divine Destiny of The Destinies"), and arguably "Purify Weird Soul". It's one reason they replaced it with "Soul Crush" in the [[VideoGame/ValkyrieProfile2Silmeria later]] [[ValkyrieProfileCovenantOfThePlume games]].

** Likewise, because of the TimeyWimeyBall, ''ValkyrieProfileCovenantOfThePlume'' chronologically takes place before ''Lenneth'', but after Silmeria is sealed in Brahms' castle, but "before" Lezard's little time traveling expedition, as [[spoiler:Odin is still alive]].

In 2016, Square Enix announced a new entry to the series entitled ''Valkyrie Anatomia: The Origin'' for iOS and Android devices. It serves as a prequel (for real this time, it seems like) and features a younger-looking Lenneth with a redesigned outfit.

*** Then again, some sources also refer that the Norns could take role as valkyries, but they can act more independently compared to the "traditional" ones (since they don't need to answer to Odin and Freya) and some skaldic sagas mentioned that the Norns are possibly half-elven. Unintentional FridgeBrilliance kicks in for what the Seal Rating's functions and the meta-background of Lezard [[spoiler: using a half-elven homunculus to revive Lenneth]] are.
