* SealedGoodInACan - Lilka's sister is [[spoiler: trapped in another dimension; unusually for this trope, she never gets freed from the can and Lilka even has to ''give up the hope of ever getting her back'' to save Ashley instead]].

Added DiffLines:

* StrangledByTheRedString: During a sequence where characters are being formally paired up with love interests or friends, Marivel and Tony share a scene which starts as her playing along with his childish crush, but ends with her expressing some genuine interest in him. The two characters interact rarely, if ever, for the entire rest of the game and their entire relationship can be summed up as [[spoiler: "Vampires are awesome!" on Tony's end.]]

* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: With [[spoiler:Judecca after his boss fight]], as [[SoundOnlyDeath the camera turns away]] (along with Tim and Lilka) right before a bright flash and sound like a gunshot, then turns back to show [[spoiler:Judecca's body falling away into the void inside his Diablo Pillar]].


Added DiffLines:

* BloodFromTheMouth: Judecca coughs up a sizable spray after his boss fight, to help get the point across with the sprite artwork.

* AbsurdlyLongStairway: Nearing the end of the game there's the spiral tower, which has an extremely long staircase leading down into the center of the planet. Once you get to the end of the staircase you have to go through another dungeon then fight several minibosses, and the final boss to beat the game.

* TheHero - The concept is put through the wringer, along with HeroicSacrifice, above. Ashley's early fixation on becoming a hero comes off as fairly naive, Brad is hostile to the very idea (and blames it for his arrest at the beginning of the game), and Kanon is utterly driven by the need to live up to her legendary ancestor, the Sword Magess. Just to drive it in further, after you fight Kanon for the third time, Judecca comes along to mock her and Ashley and the simplistic black-and-white morality inherent in the idea:
---> '''Judecca:''' The 'Demon' and 'Hero' are passing dreams, a bequest from the past.



* PlotTailoredToTheParty - Some of the dungeons are tailored to the party's skills to a ''ridiculous'' extreme.

* PlotTailoredToTheParty - Some of the dungeons are tailored to the party's skills to a ''ridiculous'' extreme. Others are slightly justified by having the tool necessary to get through given right there - either left behind by the makers (such as Tim's Air Ballet) or given expressly because it could be used to get through (Ashley's throwing knife).



* RelationshipVoiceActor: Drama CD only. Believe it or not [[Creator/TakahiroSakurai Ashley]] is [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud Strife]] ''AND'' [[Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa Irving]] is [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]]! And this is even before that [[Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren movie]] relates those two!

* [[ArcWords ArcWord]] - Hero. The entire game is an analysis of what it means to be a hero.

Added DiffLines:

* FamedInStory: "The Eleniak Witch-Girl", Lilka's older sister. Which makes it odd that she's [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname Only Known By Her Nickname]].


Added DiffLines:

* [[NoNameGiven No Name Given]]/OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Lilka's sister, "The Eleniak Witch-Girl". Quite odd, considering she's FamedInStory to the point of Lilka having a bit of an inferiority complex.


Added DiffLines:

* TheVoice: Lilka's sister.

* BefriendingTheEnemy: Ashley & company develop a friendship this way with Kanon. Kanon, a demon hunter, has made it her mission to assassinate Ashley who [[SuperPoweredEvilSide is possessed by]] the ancient demon Lord Blazer who Kanon's ancestor sealed away thousands of years ago. The team reluctantly fight repeated battles with Kanon, until Ashley manages to convince her that he's a good person, and asks her to join the group plus entrusting her the responsibility of striking him down (and killing Lord Blazer) if he can't control the demon's influence any longer [[spoiler: when this moment finally does arrive however she can't bring herself to kill Ashley as she's developed feelings of friendship with him and the other members of ARMS.]]

* EveryoneCanSeeIt - ''Everyone'' in Meria assumes Ashley and Marina are going to get together sooner rather than later, no matter [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend how much Ashley protests]]. It doesn't help his case that Ashley spends his first leave from [=ARMs=] visiting her, or that he instantly decides to give her a gem he finds. Not to mention he goes into a genuine panic when someone brings it up.

* OurVampiresAreDifferent - [[spoiler:Marivel]] and the other Crimson Nobles. They're still pretty traditional Vampires as far as this trope is concerned (Exposure to sunlight is life-threatening, they drink blood, they even have the fancy collars and [[{{Castlevania}} annoyingly-designed castle]]).
