Added DiffLines:

* BeakAttack: The Ansels are big flying birds with long and sharp-looking beaks. Their attack animation show them diving at the character, and their "Skewer" ability sounds rather self-explanatory.

* ArcWords: ''"Seize our destiny."'' It starts as a sort of CatchPhrase for [[TheObiWan Dunban]], but later becomes synonymous with the party's struggle to change the future.

* UnexplainedRecovery: The Colonel of the Colony 9 Defense Force, nicknamed "Squarestache", is apparently crushed to death by a Mechon flinging a vehicle during the attack on Colony 9 at the start of the game. It's easy to assume he had been killed, but talking to an NPC later in the story reveals that he somehow survived the crush (Maybe he yelled at the vehicle to squat its way off his spine); and later he shows up during [[spoiler:the Alliance's assault on Sword Valley]], perfectly healthy and back to being comic relief.

** When [[spoiler:the Mechonis begins moving]], you get treated to the lovely sight of dozens of people spilling off of [[spoiler:its sword]] towards the ocean several miles below. Later on, however, it is shown that [[spoiler: many of them were caught out of the air by the High Entia flying machines and the Nopon's Pterix, and survived after all]]. It's stated that casualties were "kept to a minimum", but the relative proportions of how many were or weren't saved was not made clear.
** [[spoiler: When the Bionis begins moving, ''EVERYONE'' on it should have died from the earthquakes and floods from the falling Eryth Sea alone; once you return to it, however, everything is fine beyond the High Entia turning into dinosaurs and largely no one cares about their ''goddamn continent'' suddenly springing to life and swinging swords.

* LampshadeHanging: Part of the "Find the Kingpin!" sidequest involves a key item that the protagonists cannot read due to it being written in Nopon script. By the time you'd do the side-quest, Riki, the playable Nopon, would be in your party. If he's not one of the three active characters by the time you give said key item to the quest giver for him to read, he'd tell the party members that you should've given it to Riki so that he could read it to the rest of the group and tell them what it says.



* LaserGuidedKarma: [[spoiler:The High Entia turn into Telethia when Bionis awakens.]] Yumea, the First Consort, wants High Entia ''blood purity'', meaning no half-Homs High Entia. [[spoiler:She turns into a Telethia, while Melia doesn't, but if she had got her way, [[InferredHolocaust the High Entia would have been ''royally screwed'']].]]

** The fact that Shulk continues to have visions of the future after [[spoiler: losing the Monado and getting it replaced by a shoddy knockoff]] may briefly ''seem'' like GameplayAndStorySegregation, but later it becomes clear that there's some significance to it. [[spoiler: It makes sense after Shulk manifests the True Monado, which was apparently inside him the entire time.]]

** It's established earlier that the Monado can't hurt "the sentient beings of Bionis." Naturally, this doesn't come into play when fighting random monsters, but later [[spoiler:you end up fighting some High Entia assassins, and if Shulk is in battle, the Monado will only do ScratchDamage to them.]] This is taken further within the NewGamePlus where [[spoiler: the other type of Monados, including the Monado III, are indeed able to hurt them due to them not being limited in this regard as with the original Monado at this point within the story.]]
** Then there's also the [[spoiler:Faced Mechon, once you know they are really just Homs in a forced symbiosis with a Mechon.]]

* FunnyForeigner: How the Nopon are portrayed, at least in the English version. Their strange customs, funny accents, and [[YouNoTakeCandle butchered English]] combine to create this impression.
