* BlindIdiotTranslation: One may argue that the German translation of Dawn Of Souls is this. Most things are translated correctly, except for Intelligence, which is translated as IQ. It's highly unlikely that anyone with an IQ lower than 20 would be qualified to save ''anything'', much less know how to cast magic or swing a sword.

** In all versions, the Castle of Ordeals/Citadel of Trials is one. Due to a river near it, it's the one location on the northern continent that can be reached before acquiring the airship (though it does require getting the canoe, which requires beating Lich). While potentially difficult, the hostile fauna doesn't have nearly as many cheap tricks as some of the random encounters in the next two dungeons that the party is directed towards, the level layout is much simpler and less deadly (''i.e.'' no floors that damage the party), and the equipment found inside is around on par with the best loot at the lowest levels of those two areas. Plus, the bosses of the Castle/Citadel are [[{{Dracolich Zombie Dragons]], which have [[WeaksauceWeakness several easily exploited vulnerabilities]]. Stopping by there before trying to defeat Kary/Marillith or acquiring the Floater/Float Stone makes those two tasks significantly easier, both in terms of having more experience and better gear.

** In the remakes, the FifteenPuzzle can give out rather nice rewards, so that farming it to clean out Elfheim's shops is much more reasonable than the "grind for money against ogres and/or pirates" method needed in the original release. Its usefulness, however, wanes afterwards, as loot from chests becomes generally better than what's in stores.

Excuse plot or no, ''Final Fantasy'' became Square's [[BreakthroughHit first big hit]] -- and it helped [[TropeCodifier change]] the {{RPG}} industry to boot. Many more titles followed. However, the rumor of the game being named '''''Final''''' ''Fantasy'' because it was the game that saved Square from bankruptcy isn't true. It was originally going to be named '''''Fighting''''' ''Fantasy'', but there was already a board game based off of a successful series of adventure books with that name, so they went with ''Final'' instead.

** Lots of it, due largely to the fact that the game is, effectively, an unlicensed adaptation of the 1st edition of ''TapletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. Most of the more blatant ''D&D'' elements were abandoned beginning with ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'', and the series began to craft its own identity from there.

* FollowTheLeader: This was intended to be a ''DragonQuest'' killer. Although it didn't come close, as DQ is still more popular in Japan, the Final Fantasy series is the world's most famous JRPG series.

* LawyerFriendlyCameo: The bestiary of ''Final Fantasy'' was essentially the same as that of 1st edition D&D. Several monsters were renamed in the NES release, to prevent any possible lawsuit with Creator/{{TSR}}, then-owners of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. Most prominently, Fiend of Fire Marilith, based on a high-ranking demon in D&D, became Kary (though she went by her original name in [[UpdatedRerelease re-releases]]). Similarly, the [[{{Oculothorax}} Beholder]] and [[PaletteSwap Death Beholder]] was altered into the Eye and Phantom (respectively renamed Evil Evil and Death Eye in re-releases).
