** This concept is so ubiquitous and explored that pretty much every character in the story is a hero in some way, to someone or something. It's such a {{Deconstruction}}, {{Reconstruction}}, and DiscussedTrope of the ideology of heroism that even the villains are heroes from a FromACertainPointOfView, [[spoiler: including, and especially, Irving]]. Think of pretty much any Heroic trope you can, and it'll be in this story somewhere.

* 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]].

* 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!

* 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.
