Added DiffLines:

** The characters in the Episode I prologue look super-realistic compared to the rest of the characters.


Added DiffLines:

** The third game kept database entries for nearly all the characters in the series but left out Gaignun (Junior's cat). Considering he was the inspiration for Junior's alias, you would think he would have gotten a mention.

* JigsawPuzzlePlot: '''[[UpToEleven And HOW!]]''' Probably the biggest example in the entire genre... if not the entire medium.

* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Shion's prefered avatar when using the UMN is cute white bunnie character who shows up in numerous parts of the games. It generally doesn't serve any terribly important purposes, but it does represent the Save-states on the PS2's memory card.

** To be fair, looking for Ariadna was just an excuse. [[spoiler: They were really meant to pick up the Zohar Emulator, due to the strings U-TIC pulled with their spies in the Federation.]] Lots of characters during the beginning of the game noticed their objective were shifting the moment they found the Zohar emulator.
** In the third game, [[spoiler: Abel's Ark]] completely annihilates over HALF of all known planets within 72 hours of its appearance. Your party treats this news as if it was the weather forecast.

''[=Xenosaga=]'' is a series of three {{Eastern RPG}}s for the {{Playstation 2}}, all named after books written by Creator/FriedrichNietzsche. They are, in sequential order, ''Der Wille zur Macht'' (The Will to Power), ''Jenseits von Gut und Böse'' (Beyond Good and Evil ([[VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil no, not that one]])) and ''Literature/AlsoSprachZarathustra'' (Thus Spoke Zarathustra). Other games in the series include: ''Pied Piper'', a cellphone game, ''Xenosaga Freaks'', a FanService game also for the {{Playstation 2}}, ''Xenosaga I&II'', a remake of ''Episode I'' and ''Episode II'' for the NintendoDS, and ''A Missing Year'', a Flash game describing the events between ''Episode II'' and ''Episode III''. Unlike the main trilogy, these games have [[NoExportForYou not been released outside of Japan]].

Known for throwing around heavy amounts of religious symbolism, literary references, and TechnoBabble. ''Xenosaga'' is a sort of spiritual successor to its {{Playstation}} predecessor, ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' (In fact, it was originally going to be a prequel, with Xenogears itself being number five in a six-part series). There is also a SpiritualSuccessor called ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' for the Wii. It's also notable for being one of the few [[Main/RolePlayingGame [=RPGs=]]] to have a female lead.
