* 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.

* DirtyOldWoman: One Cecilia's teachers at the Abbey comments that if Jack was just little bit older, he'd be her type. Then she decides that age shouldn't matter and continues to flirt with him, anyways.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ShipperOnDeck: The Abbey's cook would really like to feed Cecilia's boyfriend and shows vocal disappointment when neither Jack or Rudy turn out to be courting her. He continues to press the issue every time Jack or Rudy speak with him later in the game.

* BigEater: Cecilia. How she keeps that figure is anyone's guess.

* 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.

* TrueCompanions: By the game's halfway mark, this applies to Rudy, Jack, and Cecilia. They become incredibly dedicated to each other and refuse to leave anyone behind, to the point where Cecilia doesn't think twice about [[spoiler: entering Rudy's possessed and dangerous mind to save him from demon Elizabeth]].



* VideoGameRemake: They went all out: new sidequests, new characters, clarified plot points, the whole nine yards. Now if only the translation had been updated too...

* 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=].]]

Further, all of his special abilities grant a positive effect when used, but impose a negative side-effect that [[AwesomeButImpractical reduces their usefulness to novelty at best.]]

** Let's not forget that the Japanese Language does not normally have an "L" sound, which tripped up a lot of translators in the early days of J-RPGs. Most of these are L<->R confusion... Malduke vs Marduk, Agares vs Agaless, Flauros vs Frauloss, etc. Sometimes the translator automatically assumes Ls should be substituted for Rs by default in names, and sometimes in non-name words (See BreathofFireII 's "Equip fishing lod").
