* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** Inverted; even with the Wear-with-all medal (which lets you wear the other gender's clothing), the game will not let you wear a dangerous bikini or the dangerous midriff wrap, telling you that even it won't let you get away with that. Also, it won't let females wear the Muscle Belt, which is two belts wrapped around the torso in an X shape. Try and guess why they didn't allow it. (Which is odd, since it's the standard uniform for ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' warriors...)
** In Coffinwell there is an elderly man in a relationship with a very young woman who is obviously using him to buy expensive clothes. (It doesn't help she is dressed in similar fashion to a playboy bunny. But that is a common sprite throughout the series). There's another couple in Dourbridge doing much the same thing.

Added DiffLines:

* SupernaturalTeam: It's possible to set up a party this way thanks to the JobSystem. It can be quite effective in boss battles, as hitting the same enemy with the same spell or ability causes additional combo damage, but it's best suited for endgame dungeons [[SquishyWizard after the HP bonuses from other classes have been taken]].

* ViralUnlockable: The post-game DLC quests can no longer be obtained normally since the Nintendo DS Wi-Fi has been taken down, but they can still be unlocked by playing with someone who had downloaded them beforehand.

** On a meta note, Nintendo ended support for WFC (Wi-Fi Connection) for all DS and Wii software on May 20th, 2014. A large number of bonus quest flags, the Inn guests, and DQVC exclusive items will now be unobtainable if they have not already been activated/downloaded or retrieved, making true 100% Completion impossible.

* StupidityIsTheOnlyOption: Late in the game, you find a long-lost and heavily disfigured ally ChainedToARock in the deepest, dankest part of a certain prison, repeating a very ugly MadnessMantra to himself. Some players who are properly GenreSavvy realize bad things will happen because of this, but it's perfectly {{justified}} in universe, since this is simply the last and most extreme case in a chain of rescues. Indeed, the Hero is most likely wondering what ''happened'' to him in the first place.

* DrawAggro: The Forbearance skill in ''DragonQuestIX'' makes one character take all attacks for the next turn. It's possible to spam this move with one character, letting the other three concentrate on damage, [[TotalPartyKill but it can be interrupted by a Disruptive Wave]]. The Paladin's LimitBreak as the same effect, but lasts several turns and can't be dispelled.

** Using the character creation system, you can make expies of other characters designed by Toriyama. Among them, [[BlueDragon Shu]], [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger Crono, Marle, and Lucca]], [[Anime/DragonBallZ Androids #17 and 18, and Gohan]], and [[Anime/DragonBallGT Uub]]... just to name a few. It's also possible to [[http://alkaplantestsite.webs.com/dq9/DQcoplayparty.jpg recreate]] virtually every previous ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' hero. In fact, the game even offers their trademark garbs as some of the more useful equips.
