** As explained in other tropes, Rubicante is a sort of NobleDemon. He fights you with your whole strength (healing the party before the fight every time), spares Edge life once, tries to explain Edge how one should fight, apologies for the bad deeds of his subordinates and doesn't try to kill once he knows he has lost which the other bosses often do.

* ThePowerOfLove: Several moments, such as Edward defeating the Sahagin and Kain [[spoiler:defeating Zemus's last attempt at mind control]] come from their love for a certain person. In addition, giving Twincast to [[OfficialCouple Cecil and Rosa]] yields Ultima, strongest attack in the entire game bar ''none''.

** The second time he comes back, Edge actually defies the trope by calling him out on it, asking Kain what he expects them to do if he gets brainwashed again. Kain's response is succinct: [[IDieFree Kill him.]][[note]]In the DS version, he actually almost succumbs a ''third time'', during the final dungeon, and only barely manages to hang on when Zemus goes to far and tries to make him think that killing Rosa would be a good idea, if his thought bubbles are any indication.[[/note]]

** Subverted in the remake, where he's more balanced with the early encounters.

* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: In ''spades.'' Two of your party members in the original game (Edward and Edge) are princes, Cecil (under the service of the king of Baron along with Kain), Rosa, and Yang (High Monk of Fabul) become monarchs themselves at the end of the game, and it's implied that the king of Fabul was once a monk himself. Then come ''The After Years,'' a bunch of protagonists are royalty (Cecil's son Ceodore, Yang's daughter Ursula, and the dwarf princess Luca.

Leviathan is the king of monsters, Bahamut is the god
** ''Then'' you have the summoned creatures as well! Leviathan and Asura are king and queen of the Feymarch, respectively. Odin is the spirit of the former king of Baron, and Bahamut is titled king of monsters.

** Pink Tails are by no means the ONLY really rare drop in the game, just the most famous one. There are a lot of other things in the game, like the hidden summons (Goblin, Mind Flayer, Cockatrice and Bomb), that are randomly dropped and every bit as rare as the Rainbow Pudding. To add insult to injury, the Goblin summon is pretty much useless, despite being as rare as Mind Flayer (damage, sap, and paralyze), Cockatrice (Multitarget Petrification), and Bomb (Damage equal to Rydia's health, without harming her). Equipments ranging from [[DiscOneNuke mid-game destroying equipments]] like Rune Staves and Lilith Rods, and other [[InfinityPlusOneSword ultimate equipments]] like Crystal Rings, extra Protect Rings, extra Ribbons, Dragon Whips, Glass Masks and so on are all [[RandomDrop randomly dropped]] and at least nearly as, if not just as rare as the Pink Tail, just that the monsters that drop them tend to be commoner encounters.

* ProfessorGuineaPig: If you destroy Barnabas before Dr. Lugae, Lugae merges himself with his creation to attack. ** Not quite. He's actually just piloting Barnabas manually, using Barnabas' vacant neck area as a cockpit.

* BonusBoss: Some of Rydia's summons (Asura, Leviathan and Bahamut), [[spoiler:Zeromus EG]] and the Dark Summons in the GBA version, and two more in the DS version, accessible only on a NewGamePlus.

* BonusBoss: Some of Rydia's summons (Asura, Leviathan and Bahamut), [[spoiler:Zeromus EG]] EG]], the Brachioraidos, and the Dark Lunar Summons in the GBA version, and two more in the DS version, accessible only on a NewGamePlus.

Added DiffLines:
* BonusBoss: Some BossInMookClothing: Many of Rydia's summons (Asura, Leviathan them. Special mention must go to the Behemoths and Bahamut), [[spoiler:Zeromus EG]] and the Dark Summons Deathmasks in the GBA version, Lunar Subterrane, both of which are immune in their own ways to magic offense (Behemoths have 254 magic defence, a single point from the cap, and two more Deathmasks cast Reflect on themselves as their opening move, which ''will'' be before you can go), both require significant strategy to defeat (Behemoths will only counterattack, Deathmasks cast reflect on ''the entire party'' so you can't heal), and both have ''buckets'' of HP. There are also stronger versions of both in the DS version, accessible Lunar Ruins. ** There's also the standout example of the Brachioraidos. At first glance, it's just a [[FixedEncounters fixed encounter]], like many other floors in the Lunar Ruins. The only on a NewGamePlus.real clue is that you have an NPC warn you about it before you fight it, something no other floor has. Even then, with the way that other Lunar Ruins NPCs behave, it's [[SchmuckBait easy to dismiss it as exaggeration.]]
