* DarkIsNotEvil: Anima is a dark-powered embodiment of pain and suffering, and she looks frankly terrifying. Ultimately though she only wants to help her party in their quest.

** In order to defeat Sin, [[spoiler:not only must a summoner die, but one of their guardians must sacrifice their life as well. The Final Aeon is made from someone with a bond with the summoner, and calling it up kills the summoner as well. Their sacrifices are ultimately futile, because Yu Yevon will possess the summoner's Final Aeon and then re-create Sin around it]].

* BarredFromTheAfterlife: Souls ''are'' allowed to voluntarily go to the Farplane at any time ([[spoiler:Mika does this after you tell him you defeated Yunalesca]]), but most don't choose to do so, so they must receive a sending ritual from a summoner in order to reach the Farplane. Souls that don't get this ritual become Unsent (sentient undead) if they're lucky, otherwise, their jealousy towards living beings warps them into Fiends. This leads to some FridgeHorror: At the end of the game, there's no more summoners, since the BigBad was powering them. [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2 The sequel]] reveals Fiends are still appearing, but no one is sure why. Someone's going to connect the dots and have a HeroicBSOD at some point...

** The other is in the Omega Ruins bonus dungeon. There are sets of four chests in various parts of the area, but in order to get these treasures, you must open the chests in the right order. It's not stated what the order is, and opening an incorrect chest will force a fight; survive, and the other chests vanish. In this same area, one must be wary of chests in battle; some of these chests are booby-trapped with Mimic enemies that will spring out if Rikku attempts to steal from the chest. If a Mimic reveals itself, the player is forced to try to destroy it since they will lose the option of fleeing. Mugging the chest will destroy the Mimic before it becomes a serious problem to deal with. The Mimic monsters, however, give the most amount of gil after a battle; with Rikku's Celestial Weapon Godhand, particularly the weapon upgrade Gillionaire, this can earn you 100,000 gil all from one battle.

* MurderIntoMalevolence: Fiends are the souls of humans whose [[GhostlyGoals unfinished business]] kept them on earth until they became bitter, angry monsters with no other purpose than to attack the living. Sin's attacks often leave huge numbersof souls that will quickly become monsters if they aren't sent on by a summoner.

** Penance, unlocked only after beating the Dark Aeons. Has 10 million HP, and its abilities are a OneHitKO on one or all of your characters, even with all your stats maxed out. With two arms that have to be taken out even as they keep regenerating in order to prevent its most lethal abilities, whittling it down will take the better part of a half-hour or longer.

** WordofGod has confirmed that their tryst in that scene is essentially a PG-friendly version of what was really happening. So, ahem, they most assuredly did.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Armor with Break HP Limit. It is hard to get or to customize, needs severe remodeling of sphere grid to be worth it, and most of enemy attacks (including [[BonusBoss Penance]]) can be reduced below {{Cap}} with five stacks of cheer and combination of armor abilities "Defense +20%" and "Auto-Protect" (which are way easier to get), can be predicted and thus blocked by an Aeon, or deal secondary Damage {{Cap}} worth of damage thus making BHPL irrelevant. You can also unlock [[AutoRevive Auto-Life]]. And then there are [[PercentDamageAttack Percent Damage Attacks]], which make healing problematic. It ''can'' be useful on Auron with the Masamune, as its damage output [[CriticalStatusBuff increases the more he's missing HP]], and even then the increased power can be easily lost by healing him back to full. The game and all the {{Bonus Boss}}es are perfectly beatable even without this armor ability.

** Armor with Break MP Limit. Since there's also "Half MP Cost" or "One MP Cost" abilities that you can unlock, there's almost no reason to increase a character's MP beyond 999.
** Weapons with Statusstrike abilities. The "Strike" levels of status effects are pretty much a guaranteed affliction of the status, which makes easy work of normal enemies when you have Stonestrike or Deathstrike, turning almost every normal attack into a OneHitKO. Naturally, this is useless against bosses. It's rare to find a boss that doesn't have ContractualBossImmunity to most negative statuses, and even rarer to find one that's vulnerable to any lethal status effect.



** If Yuna completes her pilgrimage successfully, [[spoiler: she will die]]. Revealed about halfway through the game.
