* CastFromHitPoints: Interestingly, character growth. Characters gain skills by gaining levels, but you can also take off 50 HP from their max total for a point towards a skill. It's a tradeoff between having a GlassCannon party with late-game skills, or patiently going through the game so you can get those skills permanently.



* FantasyCharacterClasses: Not in the usual sense. Most JRPGS split the party members into different archetypes that fit the role. To some extent this is true, as each character has special abilities to bias them towards a specific role, but most growth comes from customizing "mediums" that grant stat bonuses and skills as you level up. It is entirely possible to have a party full of healers, tanks or damage dealers all at any given time.

* MilestoneCelebration: The game was released in 2007 -- a decade since the first Wild [=ARMs=] game was released. Thus as a celebration the makers decide to put lots of cameos from previous games.

''Wild [=ARM=]s 5'' uses the same engine and HEX battle system from ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 4}}'' but with several refinements and improvements. The number of members allowed in battle at once is reduced to three, and the use of tools to solve puzzles returns in the form of unique bullets for Dean's ARM. Being published on the tenth anniversary of the franchise, it also includes a ''ton'' of references and cameos from previous ''[[Franchise/WildArms Wild ARMs]]'' games.
