'''''Radiata Stories''''' is a [[RolePlayingGame role-playing game]] developed by [[Creator/TriAce tri-Ace]] and published by Creator/SquareEnix for the PlayStation2. The game is notable for its large number of distinct [=NPCs=], each of whom have their own lives, lifestyles, jobs, personalities, homes, dialogues, and schedules. It makes for a much more realistic experience than the standard RPG towns populated with [[YouAllLookFamiliar eerily identical cookie cutter residents]] who [[WelcomeToCorneria say the same things ad inifinitum]], though the game is limited by the hardware into making the characters [[GroundhogDayLoop repeat the same list of activities every day, with a few exceptions.]]

* MagikarpPower: While there are plenty of examples, [[ShrinkingViolet Leona]] is arguably the most prominent. She starts at level 3, which is incredibly low at the point in the game the player can recruit her. Through grinding, her attack stat can reach upward of 398. Since her weapon is a [[TomeOfEldritchLore magical book]] instead of a [[MagicWand staff]], she has the ability to fire multiple [[FrickinLaserBeams magical lasers]], which can [[GameBreaker decimate even the toughest enemies.]]

* EvilBrit: Cross. It's debatable whether or not [[spoiler: Lucian/Aphelion]] qualifies for this. While he is not evil per se, he is definitely an antagonist and the fact that [[spoiler:he is the final boss no matter which side you choose]] is as good of a reason as any.

* ImaginedInnuendo: When [[spoiler: Jack takes over Fort Helencia]] he decides to bask in his glory by (jokingly) telling Natalie that he will spare her life if she does exactly as he says. Natalie misinterprets this until Jack clarifies that all he wanted her to do was "grovel a bit".

* AlasPoorVillain: No matter how much you disagree with Zane's reasons for wanting humanity eradicated, you have to admit that [[spoiler:hearing him break down into tears in front of his brother's grave]] is extremely heart-wrenching.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBreakdown: Zane's very first on-screen appearance features him breaking down into tears at [[spoiler:his brother's grave]].
* VillainTakesAnInterest: Zane couldn't care any less about Jack or even Ridley's existence until he learns how they can be useful to him, and thus allowing them both to fight in his army.

* MetalSlime: The dagol tortoises, tsuchinoko, and metal tortoises are extremely rare creatures which can drop obscenely useful items upon defeat. Also, the Killer Queen who you can only fight once in the entire game, but drops ''obscene amounts of exp'' and also dropping one of each type of berry in the game.

** There's Ganz, who dresses up like a fatter, older [[VideoGame/StarOceanTheSecondStory Claude]] at one point; Jack, who can dress up as [[VideoGame/StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime Fayt]]; and, of course, [[MagicalGirl Cornelia]], who looks similar to [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura Sakura]] and [[VideoGame/XenoSaga Momo]]. Her schtick is also similar to another [[MagicalPrincessMinkyMomo Momo]], in fact, and in the Japanese version, her Rachel persona is a Music/NamiTamaki cameo. She even holds nightly concerts, singing the game's OST.
