* GameBreakingBug: Save with any unpurified firefly cocoons and quit and when you reload the game their magical abilities are Lost Forever.

* LostForever: Several minions are only accessible in the first four forests. After you complete the fourth, you lose access to the first four and with it all the minions contained there. Half of them can be found in the Eternal Forest, but the other half can't. Guess which half were more likely to have extra abilities or spells?

* CheckPointStarvation: You have to go through the [[spoiler:[[FourIsDeath 4th forest]] without being able to save the game nor fusing monsters]] due to story elements, namely that [[spoiler:everyone in your village has been TakenForGranite]].

* BonusDungeon: The Eternal Corridor. ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.

to:

* BecauseDestinySaysSo: [[spoiler:Riketz, as the Chosen One of Darkness, has to be defeated by you, as the Chosen One of Light, to prevent a DarkAge from overtaking the world 'until the next transmigration'. Why? Well, Elrihm wants it that way.]]
* BonusDungeon: The Eternal Corridor. ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.Corridor, ridiculously hard, and accessible only after beating the game.



* TheChosenMany: [[spoiler: A minor example, as there are two chosen ones: you and Riketz are the Chosen Ones of Light and Darkness, respectively.]]



* CreatureBreedingMechanic: There's a Merging mechanic that allows you to fuse two minions together. The resulting minion has the body-shape of the first 'parent', the color scheme of the second, and the special attacks and elemental attributes of both.
* CrystalDragonJesus: Elrihm, God of the Forest, is this. He's largely ignored in the sequel, though.
* CuteMonsterGirl: [[spoiler:Mahbu.]]

It will try to have the special attacks and elemental attributes of both.
both, but there are restrictions (ie: your special claw attack can only every deal one type of elemental damage; fusing a monster with a special fire claw attack and a special water claw attack will yield either one of those, or a NonElemental claw attack).
* CrystalDragonJesus: Elrihm, God of the Forest, is this.this for Jehovah. He's largely ignored in the sequel, though.
* CuteMonsterGirl: [[spoiler:Mahbu.[[spoiler:Mahbu, in the second half of the story, becomes something like a fairy.]]

Added DiffLines:

* GainaxEnding: [[spoiler: Well, the whole plot is something of a MindScrew due to PurpleProse in which it's told to you, combined with the BlueAndOrangeMorality that the gods follow, and that the people sort-of follow by accepting this from the gods. But it seems to be that Riketz upset the divine balance of things, and you have to make things right, not by undoing his actions, but by beating him in combat at the base of the WorldTree. Doing this also undoes the calamities afflicting your village and uncurses Mahbu, despite these things having nothing to do with Riketz.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MagicMusic: Catching and summoning minions is done through playing music. Levant does it by playing an ocarina-like flute, the Poacher makes sinister pan flute-like noises when summoning, and the dream man uses an early acoustic guitar - possibly a mandolin, or a lute. [[spoiler: The game ends with you and Riketz playing music together to 'unite light and darkness'.]]


Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler:Riketz kicks off the plot by trying to find a way to purify cocoons without the woman who does it developing cursed brandings. The goal of the game is to reset the balance he disturbed by defying divine decree in doing this. The actual plot of him finding a better form of purification never gets resolved; you never hear if he succeeded or failed, or if this form of purification is even possible.]]
* WhatNowEnding: [[spoiler:A quasi-example. Beating the game earns you a quick speech from Riketz, some narration, and a sequence wherein a ritual makes everything all better in Cyrus. What you don't get is a follow-up about any of the characters, or humanity's fate as a whole.]]

Added DiffLines:
