* MasterOfAll: Ash starts out as a very competent and useful JackOfAllStats and MagicKnight, and becomes this trope in spades if [[GuideDangIt you manage to]] unlock his [[GameBreaker gamebreaking]], PurposefullyOverpowered Vandalier class, which is a LightningBruiser that can cast every spell in the game ''and'' use any consumable item in the game from his spell list for free.

Added DiffLines:

* MilitaryMage: Clerics act as TheMedic and Mages as artillery, and the latter are [[TacticalRockPaperScissors particularly useful]] against Armor units, which have incredibly strong physical defenses but [[MagicallyIneptFighter are vulnerable to magical attacks]]. Monks, a subclass that can be accessed by both Clerics and Mages, are {{Magic Knight}}s and [[JackOfAllStats Jacks of All Stats]] with excellent movement speed, decent physical attack and defense, and [[RedMage enough skill with both magical offense and magical healing]] to be used as either TheMedic or an offensive mage in a pinch.

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Hel Spites, though he's actually not so bad once you know that [[WellIntentionedExtremist he's got good intentions]]. Kane Spites, on the other hand... well, if you're not on the side of TheEmpire (he's actually having a good camaraderie with fellow Crimson Guards), or you're not in Ash's party, then you should run.

* {{Jerkass}}: Kane Spites, to great lengths, although he's not without his villainous qualities that he's loyal to his father and his friends. In the face of Ash, however, he certainly embraces being an asshole CardCarryingVillain.

** Heavily-armored characters in ''Vandal Hearts II'', especially those equipped with the Gravi-X Armor; it gives tremendous HP and Defense buff, but with greatly reduced movement speed.

Added DiffLines:

* MagicallyIneptFighter: Not only are [[JackOfAllStats knights]], [[LongRangeFighter archers]], and [[FragileSpeedster airmen]] incapable of casting spells, but [[MightyGlacier Armor]] units have the least magic resistance and can be torn apart by [[SquishyWizard mages]].

* HopelessBossFight: In the first game, Chapter 4 starts with a battle you are not meant to win against a large enemy force that outlevels you and includes [[spoiler:all four generals of the crimson knights, who are later fought one at a time as bosses]]. You are told from the start that the fight is hopeless and that you should escape through the gate at the opposite end of the map, which is also the mission goal you are given for the fight. With smart play it is entirely possible to wipe the enemy side off the map, but you still need to flee to the city gate and the game moves on as if you hadn't just beaten [[spoiler:Kain and company]] to a pulp.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtificialBrilliance: The AI is ruthless, deliberately playing to the TacticalRockPaperScissors and using the terrain well to surround your characters and strike at their backs whenever possible. The player has to be very careful about how everyone is positioned at the end of their turn, otherwise the enemies ''will'' gang up on the most exposed member and take him or her out. However...
* ArtificialStupidity: Occasionally, the tendency of the AI to work the type advantages works against it. Enemy archers -- including boss characters -- will occasionally walk right up next to your tanks and swordsmen so they can hit one of your fliers, and enemy mages will occasionally move closer to your front lines to target a specific unit, when it would be smarter to retreat to relative safety and pick a different target.
