** The Sealed Castle Kuza comes with a few to make every visit unpleasant. The Kuza Beasts outside have high HP and only attack with ????/Lifebreak, so expect to be one-shotted at least once. Inside are Shield Dragons who are practically immune to or counter everything besides patient use of the Control command. Later, Exdeath's Soul joins the mix as one of the strongest mooks and specializing in instant death attacks. While nobody is sure what Exdeath's Soul is [[MindScrew supposed to be]], the dungeon music keeps playing rather than the battle music to show he's special.


Added DiffLines:

** Because you can only enter battle with a limited number of skills selected, new territory always carries a risk of a monster who will wipe you out. Especially since the game is full of [[BossInMookClothing bosses in mooks clothing]] with very specific weaknesses.
*** And if you run, hope you were aiming to get the [[EvolvingWeapon Chicken Knife]] instead of the Brave Blade. The game's strongest weapon depends on a factor they never tell you.

*** Faris' sprite resembles a palette-swapped Atreyu. She has scenes screaming as her trusty steed sinks off to its death.
*** In fact, four of the five protagonists lament while their pet/ride gets put out of action with varying degrees of violence.
*** The [[BigBad villain]] wields the Power of Nothing, erasing parts of the world.

*** The [[BigBad villain]] wields the Power of Nothing, erasing parts of the world. Made harder to notice by the many translations calling it everything from the Power of the Void to the [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Power of Mu]].


Added DiffLines:

*** The classic Final Fantasy theme has always been similar to Atreyu's Quest from the movie soundtrack. And then there are all the pale, sometimes luminescent towers in the series.

*** More in line with the book version, there is a werewolf set up as [[MistakenForSpies one of the villains]]. But unlike Gmork, this one is [[RedHerring on your side]].

* InterfaceSpoiler: A few of the first job classes have Faris following the female pattern (e.g. wearing the hood up on the White Mage outfit). The unfilled magic slots in the menu also make it clear that Castle Exdeath isn't the final dungeon.

** Zigzagged with the Steam version's achievements. The achievement, "Not Dead Yet", blatantly has the description that [[spoiler: Krile inherits Galuf's power]], which makes it easy for players to infer the meaning. On the other hand, Galuf has achievements for leveling all the way up to 99 [[spoiler: with the pictures hidden to spoil that it's actually for Krile]], averting this.

* LethalJokeItem: The Excalipoor is a ShoddyKnockoff of the legendary Excalibur that always only does 1 damage if used like a normal weapon, but it has several useful quirks. First of all, it will deal several thousand points if thrown with the Ninja's "Throw" ability, as the 'always deals 1 damage' quirk is in addition to its decent attack power, and "Throw" uses the attack power for its damage calculation. It'll be LostForever if you do this, so it's TooAwesomeToUse in this fashion. Secondly, the Blue Magic spell "Goblin Punch" will ignore its normal damage restriction (weak unless the target and user are the same level) and deal tons of damage normally, as it is based on the equipped attack power. Finally, because 'always deals one damage' is ''literal'', '''it never misses'''. This makes it useful against Skull Eaters (enemies with [[OneHitPointWonder 1 HP and ridiculously high evasion]]).

* LostForever: There are the summons/weapons/anything else that vanish once you [[spoiler:switch planets.]] Ramuh is actually available in the final dungeon if you missed him early on, but he's the only one; Shiva, Carbuncle, and Catoblepas are truly gone forever if you didn't get them sooner.
** In Karnak, [[spoiler:once Exdeath activates the palace's self-destruction, not only can all the castle's previously blocked off chests be missed (which is incredibly easy to happen, since you only have 10 minutes to escape), but the BossBattle against Iron Claw can be missed entirely if you accidentally kill his human form before killing his wolves.]]
