* TheEmpire: Shantotto claims to have one of her own in her expansion. Also, the Orcish Empire is a state to the north that invaded the [[TheKingdom San d'Oria]] region, so all the orcs in the game are just the expeditionary force of a larger empire.
** Not to mention the Empire of Aht Urhgan, although this has some aspects of TheKingdom as well from a trope perspective.

* TheGoodKingdom: All three of the joinable nations fall under this trope to some extent, although the Kingdom of San d'Oria is probably the straightest example because it's a monarchy as well. The Marquisate of Tavnazia and the Grand Duchy of Jeuno may also fall under this, but have certain mitigating factors [[spoiler:what with the former being destroyed except for a hole in the ground and the latter being ruled by a secretly evil Archduke.]] The sacred city of Adoulin used to be this, as it often mentions its founder kind, but has long transitioned to a system of government mediated by multiple factions.

Having gained a reputation for being intensely-unfriendly to beginners, ''Final Fantasy XI'' has softened in recent years by introducing a multitude of tutorials, stat-boosters and experience bonuses designed to help new players get off to a running start. There is even [[http://finalfantasyxi.com/freetrial/ a 14-day trial for new players to try the game without devoting to it.]] With that said, the game is still less "casual" than market leaders like ''WorldOfWarcraft''.

* FantasticRacism: Fairly light in the game itself, and light in the player base compared to WorldOfWarcraft, but it exists. Some think Tarutaru are evil little demons hiding behind their cuteness, Elvaan are total jerks, etc. It should be noted that these are mainly restricted to their home cities, for instance, Galka in [[TheEmpire Aht Urhgan]] act and are treated pretty much the same as anyone else there.

** Many of the names you can give to a Puppetmaster's automaton are references to military equipment (E100, X-32, [=A7V=]) and sci-fi ([[ForbiddenPlanet Robby]], [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Marvin]], [[StarTrek Data]]).

* BreastPlate: While actual breastplates seem to avoid this, it is almost uncommon for a Mithra to wear actual ''pants''. More to the point, Female characters in general will occasionally find themselves wearing a bikini bottom when the same piece of equipment yields pants for males. However, [[{{Squick}} this is not always the case.]]

** Revisited with the Warders in Escha - Ru'Aun. In addition to updated versions of the seven Jailers, the Warders' ranks include three Empty NMs representing Dignity, Loyalty, and Mercy, and Absolute Virtue returns as the Warder of Courage.



* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Moogles, Goblins, and Qiqirn are allowed to live with "people" and even start their own business or host a large-scale event. Everyone else? Killed on sight.
** Sort of. When you consider how many allied Yagudo there are, it comes off like the Altana races are merely collectively racist. Also supporting this, the reason Galkas and Mithras have a lower charisma score than the other player races is that they look more like beastmen than the other races.
** The beastmen races are not all evil. Originally, the Orcs were allies of the Elvaan, and the Yagudo were peaceful people who were invaded by the tarutaru, with no real opinion on the other races. The Quadav only become enemies because the Bastokans destroyed the Quadav nesting grounds to mine ore.
*** Though, the Aht Urghan beastmen are just evil. "Hey guys, they have a shiny thing! Let's kill them and take it!"
*** Actually, it's more like "Hey guys, they have the shiny thing [[spoiler:that powered a massive doomsday machine that was used to subjugate almost an entire continent. Let's take it so they don't do that shit again. Give 'em some of their own medicine while we're at it." If Lamia/Merrow, add revenge for being created beings. If Trolls, add being mercs.]]
** Tarutaru [[strike:used to be]] ''are'' evil little bastards. In the game's backstory, they invaded and occupied what would become San d'Oria, subjugating the Elvaan for a very long time. [[MoralMyopia They see themselves as having done nothing wrong]], despite being clear aggressors and conquerors no different from the beastmen.
*** Even worse, the frog Beastman race, the Poroggos, saw themselves as kin to the Taru and learned their language and magic arts; the end result? The Taru tried to genocide them.
