* LoadsAndLoadsOfRaces: Hoo boy...humans, dwarves, elves, faeries, demons, mermaids, sirens (which are separate), centaurs, mummies, lizard women, chocobos, nagas, rabbit people, cat people, onion people, Dudbears, Jumi, people made of puzzle pieces, talking monkeys, talking teapots, talking penguins, talking walruses, talking pelicans, cavemen, mouse people, bird people, werewolves with dragon tails, gramophones with arms and faces, whatever the hell Rev. Nouvelle and Revanshe are...and that's not even getting into the monsters.
** [[AllThereInTheManual One of the many manuals]] explains that in this world, humans' appearance change subtly based on their experiences, and these new traits [[LamarckWasRight can be passed on to their children]]. But most of the above are still completely separate species.
* PermanentlyMissableContent:
** You can lose out on several quests if you refuse to take Bud and Lisa on as apprentices near the beginning of the game.
** In one of your sidequests, your Cactus (who is responsible for Cactus Diary entries) runs off and you have to find him. If you finish any of your other sidequests in the meantime, they will not be recorded as complete in said Diary and you'll have to wait for a NewGamePlus to try again.
*** Hell, any of the Cactus Diary entries are lost if you fail to talk to Lil' Cactus before finishing another event. This can be [[GuideDangIt very irritating]] for first-time players due to abruptly-ending events ("Mana Orchards" springs to mind) causing the previous event's entry to be lost, or even worse, the event "Lil' Cactus". Whatever you do, NEVER talk to Bud if you have a Diary entry waiting to be recorded. (Luckily, "Daddy's Broom" does not cause this same thing: while the cactus leaves, he also comes back before the event ends. Once again, however, failing to talk to Bud LAST will screw you over: if you don't, you'll lose Bud when you go back into the house to talk to Lil' Cactus, and he won't come back until after the event.)
** In addition, anything in The Flames or Lucemia is lost forever once those areas are no longer accessible. Luckily for us, the game's [[NewGamePlus cyclical nature]] means that "forever" lasts only until your current playthrough is over.
** The Heaven's Gate Arc is the hardest one of the three primary arcs to begin. A big part of this is that you can potentially miss out on it for the entire cycle if you go to the wrong level at the wrong time.

** Tropicallo. No matter how hard you hit the hands, the boss takes a fixed amount of damage, and it only takes damage when it regenerates one of his knocked out heads. On higher difficulties this will take forever. And if you're caught in the [[ActionBomb self destructing]] hand's attack (that fills the entire screen) [[GameOver start the entire fight over]].
** You have to go through this fight ''twice'': Once for plot purposes, and afterwards for the most ridiculous RomanticPlotTumor you can imagine. Lord help you if you go through these quests on {{N|intendoHard}}o [[NewGamePlus Future]] mode.
** Tropicallo also has a younger brother, called Labanne. The only difference between both is that Labanne takes less damage to kill, and Labanne is fought on a much bigger screen so his self-destruct attack is much easier to dodge. For either of those bosses, the heads take morbid amounts of damage to kill on No Future mode. Anybody not using a weapon with over 500 attack power for Labanne, and with max attack power for Tropicallo is bound to get stuck on the bosses for quite a while. Hint: getting a weapon with over 300 attack already needs insane amounts of very precise tempering.

Endless numbers of sidequests which can become LostForever (well, sort of, anyway) if you make one tiny little mistake. The whole... damned... GAME is one giant GuideDangIt.

* LoveMakesYouEvil: Larc (sold his soul to be as strong as his sister), Alexandra (pushing the Jumi into extinction to save Florina from dying), Irwin (plotting world destruction to free Matilda from her duties), and Escad (''says'' he wants to kill Irwin because the latter is a demon, but comes off as wanting to MurderTheHypotenuse) all do what they do because of love.

* MarathonBoss: Tropicallo. No matter how hard you hit the hands, the boss takes a fixed amount of damage, and it only takes damage when it regenerates one of his knocked out heads. On higher difficulties this will take forever. And if you're caught in the [[ActionBomb self destructing]] hand's attack (that fills the entire screen) [[GameOver start the entire fight over.]]

** Generally averted with the Heaven's Gate arc. Two of your allies WILL fight to the death, forcing you to pick a side (and attempting to stay neutral will have the ally with higher affinity with you turning on you). Then after you kill the AntiVillain of the arc, he is reunited with his love in death. However, even though she wants to stay with him, he decides hes tired of all the crap he went through and chooses to reincarnate with no memories of his past love. The whole affair is rather depressing really.
*** The manga has a much more upbeat ending. Daena and Escad do not fight to the death, and Irwin and Matilda become babies together, with Daena and Escad choosing to raise them.

* SpeakingSimlish: The Dudbears. Their vocabulary is composed of very few syllables.
** Trivia: The Dudbear language isn't exactly gibberish. "Duba", their word for Dudbear, is also an African word for bear.
* SuckingInLines: The vast majority of super moves.
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler: The Mana Goddess]] has one. So does [[spoiler:Pearl]], kinda. (DarkIsNotEvil, yeah, but [[spoiler: Lady Blackpearl]] is a walking GameBreaker while [[spoiler: Pearl]] is just TheLoad).

** Plus, like all SquareEnix games, this one has an Ultimania guide that contains loads and loads of backstory that didn't make it into the game itself. [[CrackIsCheaper Have fun tracking it down!]]

After that, [[AndManGrewProud mankind grew afraid to desire]]. Their hearts filled with empty emotions, and grew estranged from my hands. They turned their eyes away from my infinite power, and were troubled by their petty disputes.\\
