* AluminumChristmasTrees: The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pistol_sword Gunblade]], something people thought was made up for the game, actually ''did'' exist in real life. Whether or not it was practical is another story.

** Even the short and low-award Winhill side quest, where you have to find and collect the pieces of a broken vase around the village, has an element of this. You're given no clue that [[spoiler: you have to have Irvine in your party]] to find one of the pieces. To add insult to injury, the piece in question is closest to the NPC that gives you the quest and is in an otherwise very conspicuous spot.

* {{Badass}}: As per series tradition, there are plenty:
** BadassAdorable: Selphie.
** BadassArmy: The [=SeeDs=]. In one day, Squall duels his rival, kicks the crap out of a Guardian Force, destroys two horrible mutant abominations, storms a beach D-Day style, fights an amphibious/urban battle, and escapes from a nigh-unkillable spider robot (or kills it for extra credit), and no one considers this strange or unusual. For [=SeeD=], this is just an example of a final exam for them, which qualifies them to be [=SeeD=] soldiers. No wonder they've got such a crazy reputation. Admittedly, Squall in particular is considered badass by the BadassArmy, even at that point in the story.
** BadassBiker: Galbadia's army includes motorcycle troops, using their mobility to race around the battlefield...
** BadassBystander: ... only for one of the bikers to get ''clotheslined'' by a Balamb Garden student swinging a sword.
** BadassDriver: Squall hijacks a top-down car during the disc one finale and speeds up to square-off against his RivalTurnedEvil and the (literal) DiscOneFinalBoss.

** BadassLongcoat: Seifer and Irvine wear these.
** BadassNormal: Laguna, Ward, and Kiros, under most circumstances.
** BadassTeacher: Quistis, at least at first. She probably qualifies for BadassBookworm as well, as becoming a [=SeeD=] by age 15 requires some hardcore studying.

* DistractedByTheSexy: Laguna seems to fall foul of this when faced with [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII the Cloud of Darkness]] in ''[[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Duodecim 012]]'', with his [[MythologyGag leg cramps acting up]], and all. This is complicated by the fact that [=CoD=] [[NoBiologicalSex is actually sexless]], and initially assumed that he was frozen with fear ([[AnthropomorphicPersonification which it supposedly represents]]).

* ReviveKillsZombie: Certainly a staple of the series (particularly in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' at one point), but particularly {{egregious}} here, where you can [[spoiler:remove the zombified 'president' in one hit on the early-game train mission]]. This can also be done against Abadon, but has less of a chance of being successful.
