* ApatheticCitizens: You'd never know there was anything wrong with the world just by visiting the towns. Hell, Balandor's about as bright and cheery as it ever was ''the next day after'' the castle is raided, their king is murdered, and their princess is kidnapped. ** Actually, pretty much ALL of the people in Balandor, as well as Parma (who even have a gossip circle going on) are talking about the raid on the castle and how they pretty much have lost all the royal family now, except for the few trying to ignore it and go on with life. One citizen will even talk about how some people are too afraid leave their houses, and if you look around [[TheDevTeamThinksofEverything most of the kids that were outside the day before are nowhere to be seen (with the acceptation of two street orphans).]] You can't even go into the Noble's Quarter anymore because of all the damage.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: In the very first camp Miu advises against overusing the Knight's power because she [[spoiler: senses something sinister beneath it's metal surface]] and it only gets more obvious from there. The game takes every chance it gets to remind you that something is very wrong with the White Knight.

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:One of the first things Madoras does after his revival is kill Grazel. He makes it quick and painless because Grazel was a useful pawn]]. ** It's a bit of LaserGuidedKarma on his part, seeing as how he pulled the same move on Belcitane halfway through game one.

Cleaning up natter.
* {{Anticlimax}}: Both games sputter across the finish line when they finally get to their endings, but its particularly egregious in the second game, which feels like the ending of a Act Two of a three act story, when it ''is'' the ending of that story. ** It actually isn't. Madoras is simply the Dragon to the true big bad, but, again, unfortunately, due to not making enough money to justify translating the remaining 50% of the 3rd story, the west doesn't get the full game.

* CompetitiveBalance: Depending on what discipline(s) you decide to master, you can end up... ** JackOfAllStats: The sword discipline results in this, as it does not heavily favor any particular style of combat aside from having slightly more slashing attacks in its arsenal than piercing and smashing. *** MagicKnight: Use of a shortsword (less raw damage than a normal sword, but grants boosts to magic stats) Takes the sword skillset's jackness even further. ** FragileSpeedster: The bow discipline. Bow-wielders are typically the swiftest characters to act, and are not particularly tough. However, they make up for it with many useful support skills. ** MightyGlacier: The greatsword and axe disciplines both do this in different ways. Greatsword-wielders are glaciers who are suited to dueling single targets, while axe-wielders are far better at plunging into crowds of enemies and smashing them all. ** StoneWall: The spear discipline. It's designed to be used in tandem with large shields and the skillset is packed with status buffs, things designed to draw aggro away from other party members, and very little in terms of major damage. ** SquishyWizard: The staff discipline. It's the only way to really make the most of both types of magic offered, but you're not going to be doing much else. *** GlassCannon: Staff / [[BlackMagic Elemental Magic]]. All the classic spells what knocks the peoples down are here. In addition, a sword-wielder who makes frequent use of the DualWield skill Phantom Blade forsakes the extra defense given by the small shields typically paired with swords in order to effectively double their damage output. *** TheMedic: Staff / [[WhiteMagic Divine Magic]]. Heals, buffs and status relief.
