** When you pass by the outdoor Timber TV screen you can notice a message in the garbled text... [[spoiler: It's Adel calling out from her prison demanding to not be forgotten; "I'm alive. Bring me back there. I'll never let you forget me."]]

* HaveAGayOldTime: Seifer's "romantic dream" of being a Sorceress Knight. He's talking in the classical definition of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chivalric_romance chivalric romance]], which was all about knights and heroism, a genre and time where to love someone meant to be loyal to them, as a knight would proclaim his love for his king. Without that context to put his other dialogue into context, it comes off as Seifer dreaming about romantic attraction, rather than being the heroic knight protecting Edea.

* CantGetAwayWithNuthin: It doesn't matter if you have just spent the last hour rescuing cadets and children from [[spoiler:monsters unleashed by [=NORG's=] faculty]] and been appointed Commander. Use magic in the halls ''and your ass is going down a rank''.

to:

* CantGetAwayWithNuthin: CantGetAwayWithNuthin:
** Showing off your Gunblade in the Classroom Area (where weapons are prohibited) will instantly result in you getting caught by Garden Faculty and being deducted points from the SeeD exam.
** From the instant you put your Garden Cadet uniform until you are dismissed after the completion of the mission, you are being closely monitored. Run away from too many fights? Go out of your way to talk to people instead of focusing on the mission? Disobey an order given by your squad leader? They'll know, and your Final Exam score (and initial SeeD Rank) will suffer for it.

* {{Bowdlerize}}: Two small examples in the NA version: an undead boss had its guts changed from red to blue, and a bloodstain in Ultimecia's castle was changed from red to green.
** ContractualBossImmunity: A rare subversion with Selphie's "The End" Limit Break, which, if pulled off successfully, can OneHitKill any boss in the game except the FinalBoss (and then it's only because it's a four-stage fight; The End will still knock out one of the stages for you instantly). However, it's played straight with other attacks, such as Quistis's "Degenerator" Limit Break or the Level 5 death spell.
*** There's actually a notable example with Odin, who will randomly appear during non-boss battles and use a OneHitKill attack to destroy whoever you're fighting. When fighting Seifer for the fourth time, [[spoiler:Odin will appear and use his OneHitKill attack, but Seifer blocks it and destroys Odin. However, this causes Gilgamesh to appear later in the battle and use his OneHitKill attack to defeat Seifer]].
