* OurGodsAreGreater: There are several beings referred to as gods, or who are otherwise of equal power (Myria and Ladon for the first, Yggdrasil and Deis[[note]]Though the latter name is itself a feminization of "Deus," Latin for "God"[[/note]] for the second; Ryu as the Kaiser may also count). None of them are omniscient or omnipotent, however (and Myria ''thinking'' of herself as such is what drove much of the BackStory).

* MartialPacifist: Hondara. Before he'll allow you to study under him, you first have to learn how to fight without killing, which you accomplish by learning the otherwise useless moves of the ActualPacifist mentioned above. The Urkans as a whole seem to lean in this direction...except in the very, very rare event that they [[BewareTheNiceOnes go to war]]. Then [[GoodIsNotNice the gloves come off]].

Subtrope.
* {{Filler}}: the episodes centering around the Rhapala region (training Beyd, fixing the Lighthouse and helping the fairies). Yes, they have ''some'' significance after the TimeSkip, but they really have no bearing in the overall scheme of things. Garr even laments why they have to do all these things just to find a way to Angel Tower.

* {{Filler}}: the episodes centering around the WackyWaysideTribe: The shenanigans that happen in Rhapala region (training Beyd, fixing the Lighthouse and helping the fairies). Yes, they during Childhood have ''some'' significance very little relevance to the greater plot. You just have to sort out the issues with an ArrangedMarriage, a broken lighthouse, and the fairies that were breaking the lighthouse before you can pass on to the Urkan Region. While the Guild provides some assistance after the TimeSkip, but they really have no bearing in TimeSkip and the overall scheme fairies become a major SideQuest later, ultimately the purpose of things. Garr even laments why they have the events in Rhapala is to do all these things just to find extend the game a way to Angel Tower.bit.

* NotCompletelyUseless: Durandal's Backhand can't finish off an enemy. Aside from the fact that you have to learn it to unlock Hondara, most players would write it off as useless...but when training Beyd, you want to injure him without knocking him out, so Backhands are a good way to train up his HP and Defense.

** In the Western versions, the woodsman Baba is named Bunyan, after Myth/PaulBunyan. ** The (literal) horsemen Balio and Sunder are named after [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balius_and_Xanthus Balius and Xanthus]], a pair of immortal horses from Greek mythology.

** Though a DummiedOut spell, there was one which would have apparently [[TimeStandsStill stopped time]]. It's name? [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure ZA WARUDO!]] There's even unused voice clips of the whole cast shouting it.

In the Western versions, they are localized to Scylla and Charybdis (another Greek mythology reference).

* WaitingPuzzle: Appears near the end with a dragon statue asking Ryu to "Bow down before me and pray...", a ContinuityNod to save-points of the previous games, but with no other hints or any animation of Ryu's sprite as indication of anything happening, making it seem like he won a stare-down with the statue when the path eventually opens.

* FullFrontalAssault: Deis' introduction, in which she pounds on Garr while wearing nothing but a (presumable) smile. [[http://www.pixelitis.net/news/rumor-alleged-playtester-sheds-light-on-psn-denial-of-breath-of-fire-iii Rumored to be one of the key reasons the game has not been rereleased on PSN.]]
