* NoEndorHolocaust: [[spoiler: When the Bionis begins moving, ''EVERYONE'' on it should have died from the earthquakes and floods from the falling Eryth Sea alone; once you return to it, however, everything is fine beyond the High Entia turning into dinosaurs and largely no one cares about their ''goddamn continent'' suddenly springing to life and swinging swords. Total annihilation only occurs if "[[NonStandardGameOver Bionis Slash X]]" is allowed to succeed.]]
** This gets averted on two occasions: the first when [[spoiler:the Mechonis begins moving, and you get treated to the lovely sight of dozens of people spilling off of its sword and into the ocean several miles below]]; the second when [[spoiler:Egil-as-Mechonis spears the Bionis' shoulder, off-handedly asking Shulk how many people he thinks died in that attack.]]

[[spoiler: many of them were caught out of the air by the High Entia flying machines and the Nopon's Pterix, and survived after all]]. It's stated that casualties were "kept to a minimum", but the relative proportions of how many were or weren't saved was not made clear.

** The fact that Shulk continues to have visions of the future after [[spoiler: losing the Monado and getting it replaced by a shoddy knockoff]] may briefly ''seem'' like GameplayAndStorySegregation, but later it becomes clear that there's some significance to it. [[spoiler: It makes sense after Shulk manifests the True Monado, which was apparently inside him the entire time.]]

** It's established earlier that the Monado can't hurt "the sentient beings of Bionis." Naturally, this doesn't come into play when fighting random monsters, but later [[spoiler:you end up fighting some High Entia assassins, and if Shulk is in battle, the Monado will only do ScratchDamage to them.]] This is taken further within the NewGamePlus where [[spoiler: the other type of Monados, including the Monado III, are indeed able to hurt them due to them not being limited in this regard as with the original Monado at this point within the story.]]
** Then there's also the [[spoiler:Faced Mechon, once you know they are really just Homs in a forced symbiosis with a Mechon.]]

* FunnyForeigner: How the Nopon are portrayed, at least in the English version. Their strange customs, funny accents, and [[YouNoTakeCandle butchered English]] combine to create this impression.

* LazerGuidedKarma: [[spoiler: The High Entia turn into Telethia when Bionis awakens.]] Yumea, the First Consort, wants High Entia ''blood purity'', meaning no half-Homs High Entia. [[spoiler: She turns into a Telethia, while Melia doesn't, but if she had got her way, [[InferredHolocaust the High Entia would have been ''royally screwed''.

* LoopholeAbuse: Dunban logics the party's way into the [[spoiler: Tomb by referring to how DaRules don't apply to the Homs versus the High Entia. This allows them to enter the Tomb and save Melia from Tyrea and the Telethia.]]

** The game includes 5 bonus bosses whose levels are above the player's cap of 99. They are Final Marcus at 100, Ancient Daedala at 105, Despotic Arsene at 108, Blizzard Belgazas at 114, and Avalanche Abaasy at 120. The last one is especially nasty because he only spawns in snowstorms, meaning that in addition to being strong enough to rip apart even a maxed out party, nightvision gems are a must to have any expectation of even touching him.
