* CatFight: [[DuelBoss Cecilia VS Elizabeth]] is nothing but this. Also it didn't help that Elizabeth in the original was a monstrous CatGirl which might look a little too similar with [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Felicia]] instead of a gothic humanoid maid.



* GiantSpaceFleaFromnowhere: So Rudy is [[spoiler: in a coma, following his recent TomatoInTheMirror and subsequent revival. Cecilia enters his mind to find out what is blocking his awakening. She watches his memories and helps him overcome self-loathing, when suddenly, a goddamn GothicLolita succubus who has been masquerading as Rudy's father in his mind shows up and fights Cecilia. Afterwards, Rudy wakes up, and the succubus (whose name is Elizabeth) is never mentioned again.]]

** Every time you fight Boomerang, he's mildly difficult and has an impressive battle theme. But when he crawls back from Hell itself to battle you once more, he's absolutely ''brutal'' and his music is appropriately ''freakin' badass.''

* DubText: In one of the more hilarious typos in the [[TheyJustDidntCare Agetec-translated]] remake, Alhazad gets called a "she" in his first appearance in the prologue. What makes this hilarious is that one of Al's defining traits is his creepy advances towards [[DarkActionGirl Lady Harken]], so Agetec ''accidentally turned him into a PsychoLesbian''. This makes it apparent that they never bothered to check up the plot of the game beforehand, since Alhazad shows this part of his nature ''at the end of the same prologue''. They caught on later, as the next reference to his gender is a comment from Magdalen about that "fellow". However, that one "she" was never fixed, making this also an example of InconsistentDub.

* ComesGreatResponsibility: Her future position as Queen of Adlehyde weighs heavily on Cecilia's mind. She's visibly relieved when Minister Johann takes over as regent until she's older and more prepared for the role.


Added DiffLines:

* KingOnHisDeathbed: Happens with King Justin after the demons attack Adlehyde. He eventually succumbs to his wounds and leaves his young daughter the throne, something that she's obviously not prepared for.

* ReluctantRuler: At 17-years-old, Cecilia is clearly nervous to step into her destined role as Adlehyde's Queen. Thankfully, Minister Johann is willing to act as regent in her absence, and until she's ready to take on the position.

* DoomedHometown: Adlehyde and Arctica. While the former can gradually be rebuilt to its former glory throughout the game, Arctica is still a frozen ruin even after the demons are defeated. And since [[spoiler: Jack]] is Arctica's SoleSurvivor, it's implied that it'll stay that way.

Jack. He's quite brash and rude in the beginning, but becomes more and more protective of Rudy and Cecilia as the game progresses, eventually showing that he cares for Filgaia just as much as them.

* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: This is the reason behind [[spoiler: Zed's]] HeelFaceTurn. If you defeat him in Saint Centaur, [[spoiler: Zed]] reveals that he was the one who saved blind girl Aura from Alhazad's attack and has since become friends with her, claiming that she was the first human to ever treat him with kindness and respect.

* ArtificialHuman: [[spoiler: [[TheReveal it turns out]] that Rudy's not human; he's an artificial construct called a "Holmcross" (though it's probably meant to be "Homunculus") created during the war a 1000 years ago using the same (or at least similar) Living Metal that the Demons are made out of. It's why he's so damn strong and also the reason he can use their technology, or tech based off it such as [=ARMs=].]]
