* LostForever[=/=]BrokenBridge: With the exception of the ones on [[spoiler:Gran Pulse]], ''every single treasure chest in the game'' is lost once you leave the dungeon it's in. Fortunately, most of them don't give out things that are all that rare. There are a few weapons and accessories you can't buy in stores found in chests, though.
** There is also one point in the game where if you don't fight an optional boss that is way too strong for the party at normal progression, you'll have to choose between two treasure chests. The one you don't pick will be lost.
** The final dungeon won't allow you back into its main bulk after you reach the end, so much for the level grinding.
** If you don't find all five parts to repair Vanille's pet robot, Bhakti, before fighting [[spoiler:Barthandelus]], then they disappear, and you lose out on a bunch of useful items.

''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' is the first part of the "ten year project" known as ''Franchise/FabulaNovaCrystallisFinalFantasy'', which was envisioned as a series of ''Final Fantasy'' games all sharing a common mythology. Unfortunately, development was filled with problems: the two biggest being an excessive amount of time spent developing the game engine, and a general lack of a cohesive vision amongst the development team.

While it received relatively warm initial reviews (currently holding 83 on Metacritic), [[BrokenBase fan reaction has been broken]] [[{{Understatement}} to put it mildly]], often citing its painful linearity and poor and convoluted storytelling.

* AttackItsWeakPoint ForMassiveDamage: The Stagger system encourages this, with a damage multiplier that goes up to 999%. Using attacks the enemy is weak to increases it faster, and some enemies become more vulnerable when staggered, such as losing their armor and becoming easier to stunlock.

** On another note, some of the Full ATB Skills (a.k.a. Limit Breaks) can be seen as this. While these moves certainly look pretty, may do a lot of damage, and fill up the chain gauge quickly, it has to be considered whether this is more effective than having six separate moves instead of this one, as it [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin takes up every ATB point available]]. However...

* ThePurge: After discovering a Fal'Cie from Pulse in some ruins, the Sanctum government decides to send everyone that was "near" that Fal'Cie to Pulse because of the irrational fear of everything coming from that planet. Several facilities were constructed for the purged population to live happily there, and a military division known as PSICOM took over and oversaw the removal of the population. However, it quickly becomes apparent that the Sanctum government neither expected nor intended for any of the Purged population to survive - when the population being shipped out began to violently resist, PSICOM used that as an excuse to simply massacre everyone.
