* RidiculouslyCuteCritter - Most monsters. Thanks to [[AkiraToriyama Toriyama's]] sense of whimsy, the monsters that aren't this are at worst UglyCute instead.

* HeelRealization: After David is killed in Arcadia, Dominico realizes that the servant that he'd so horribly belittled and abused was the descendant of the sage that his family had sworn to protect for generations, and that he'd lost sight of this because of the power that the Sage gave his ancestors for this purpose.

Added DiffLines:

* GottaKillEmAll: [[spoiler:Rhapthorne]]'s goal, as the deaths of the descendants of the Seven Sages is required to release the SealedEvilInACan.


Added DiffLines:

* SingleLineOfDescent: Played with. While the descendants of the Seven Sages must die for the BigBad to be released from his can, it must be seven ''specific'' people who inherit that portion of the "can"--meaning that in a couple cases there are other descendants in the family in question, but they are useless to the BigBad's plan. Examples: Alistair vs. Jessica, Marta vs. her son.

* RunningGag - King Trode will pop up and make a comment when the team least expects to see him, always prompting a "COR BLIMEY!" from Yangus. Lampshaded late in the game, when Trode shows up at Tyran Gully, and Yangus starts to say his line, but then stops and says [[OverusedRunningGag he's getting sick of that old bit.]]

* LuckBasedMission - The Monster Arena, to an extent Though you can pick which monsters are on your team, you can't control their actions. You have to just sit back and watch.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar - Pretty much everything Morrie says is contains a DoubleEntendre. Quite intentionally so, too. How could they resist when he runs Morrie's Monstrous Pit?

* GenreSavvy - Upon discovering that Castle Trodain is completely covered in thorny vines, Jessica simply burns the vines covering the entrance with a fire spell. She [[LampshadeHanging mentions that her magic is not that powerful, so she can't burn them all.]]

** Fortunately the Piggyback guide has every part of the game covered, with the last part of the book sealed up so you don't look at any spoilers.

** Also not to mention that a few people in the church, such as King Pavan, Carrie and Cash, owners of a massive casino, as well as King Clavius himself are good personal friends of the party, meaning they have some damn good connections. Not to mention the wealth and status of Jessica and Hero respectively. Jessica being a lady of a rich family, and Hero being the Championne and heir to the Monster Arena, essentially the most secret and prestigious of clubs to the richest of the rich. Way to show how much of an ass you are in front of the world's richest and most influential people, Charmless.
