An interview with the game director and artists can be found [[http://community.livejournal.com/disaresta/52597.html here]]; be warned that there are '''spoilers''' up through the end of the PSP version. See also ''YggdraUnison'', the AlternateUniverse cellphone/DS spinoff.

* DecoyProtagonist: You start off playing as Milanor, who is set up as the hero with Yggdra in a traditional DistressedDamsel role. Two and a half battlefields later, Yggdra becomes the player character, and Milanor is firmly established as her {{sidekick}}, losing nearly all plot significance except the ability to attract [[BigDamnHeroes Kylier]] [[DeusExMachina when the Royal Army has dug itself into a hole]] and the default commander seat when Yggdra is somewhere else. The game is explicitly about Yggdra's CharacterDevelopment and [[TheHighQueen growth as a ruler]] as she learns to balance hot-blooded idealism with compassion and an understanding of how the world works. Then the universe of episode II [[YggdraUnison started]] [[VideoGame/BlazeUnion expanding]], a certain antagonist's backstory and true motivations got lots more attention, and [[spoiler:Gulcasa]] made off with Yggdra's hero seat. On top of all this, the character in the episode II games who is the most important to [[VideoGame/DeptHeaven the 'verse]] is ''none of the above''--it's actually [[spoiler:Nessiah]], the ''antagonist,'' about which WordOfGod and [[AllThereInTheManual the side materials]] are very clear. UpToEleven, indeed.

* HideYourLesbians: There's a fair amount of subtext between Zilva and Elena, none of which amounts to much due to [[spoiler:Zilva dying]]. In addition to this, there was definitely ''[[DidTheyOrDidntThey something]]'' going on between [[spoiler:Gulcasa and Nessiah]] according to ''YggdraUnison'' and ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion''.

* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Gulcasa is a HeroAntagonist until [[spoiler:he goes and gets possessed]], and by that point there ''is'' no making him unsympathetic. As for [[spoiler:Nessiah]], he's just ''[[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds immensely]]'' [[WellIntentionedExtremist screwed]][[AntiVillain -up]]. As ''YggdraUnion'' is intensely anti-war, this is kind of the point.

* Myth/NorseMythology: The original translation of the game had several references to it, like the names of certain items and the name of Kylier's race; the updated translation added a lot more of them, since by then {{Atlus}} had realized that ''YggdraUnion'' and ''VideoGame/RivieraThePromisedLand'' were part of one series. The story itself also contains a reference--the side materials explain that one of the antagonists once sacrificed an eye in exchange for knowledge, similar to Odin.

** The Vanir [[StealthInsult are reminiscent of Native Americans,]] [[TakeThat particularly considering their relation to Fantasinia]] (and the [[NorseMythology name of their race]]). Most of them are dark-skinned ([[spoiler:Milanor]] being an exception) to make it even more obvious.

2010. ''VideoGame/GloriaUnion'' is spin-off set in another continuity, sporting a story more light-hearted in tone.
