** Banion is a definite male example, said by the game to have been waiting for a powerful heiress to accept his suit for quite some time (and before Elodie, he at least tried to court [[spoiler:Julianna]]). Talarist is also implied to be one, albeit he's more subtle in the way he goes about it.

* FissionMailed: A small case with the "evil minion" ending a few weeks before the normal end of the game, as the screen irises out like Elodie's death scenes and then goes straight into the epilogue. Another case is escaping to Sedna, as the game treats it like a regular game over, despite Elodie living and plotting to retake Nova.

**Successfully triggering an earthquake also causes the screen to iris out in much the same way...only for it to pop back open and the story to continue a couple of seconds later.

* TheChessmaster: Elodie, to varying extent. In particular, a cruel Elodie won't be able to violently blunder to her coronation without a certain amount of strategic social engineering; it's possible for her to ensure the loyalty of her nobles by killing the ones currently in power and bestowing their titles to others who would otherwise never inherit.

* FriendToAllLivingThings: While she can't strictly ''talk'' to animals (or hear them talk back), Elodie can learn how to handle different creatures and interpret their behavior with high enough education in animal-related skills. [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower This is not as useless as it may sound at first]]. [[spoiler:Highlights include the EvilDetectingDog and Elodie's trained falcon diving onto the face of an attacker]].

* HeroesPreferSwords: While you can train Elodie in archery and lances as well as swords, during [[spoiler:her climactic duel with Togami, she can create a magic sword to chop off his head]]. It's also potentially useful in [[spoiler:the duels against Banion and Kevan, though in Banion's case it's his preference rather than yours]].

Added DiffLines:

* InstantExpert: Deconstructed; Elodie is capable of becoming a master of any skill in about two months, but depends on whether she's in a suitable mood (and properly dressed) to be receptive to the lessons, which are taught by the best tutors in Nova and being given to her under life-or-death pressure. She's still implied to have more natural talent for some skills than others (and some, like History and Faith, top out with her being unable to learn any more because there are obstacles to further study), but even the ones where she's not quite skilled enough to be competitive still leave her better than her noble peers if she maxes the skill out.

** Also, Elodie apparently neglects to mention to her mentor that [[spoiler:her aunt tried to kill her in a Lumen battle]] for over a week, by which time the aftereffects have killed an innocent bystander.

[[spoiler: And if that mentor is Julianna, she will have ''attended the ball'' and presumably be among the unsettled nobles.]]

* CultureChopSuey: Nova is mostly generically "European", having regions with English, French, and even Greek-sounding names, as well as the weirdly African-sounding Mazomba. The kingdom of Shanjia is a stronger example, having many FarEast-style touches, but the costumes worn by the few Shanjian characters we see are still firmly in the MedievalEuropeanFantasy mold.

* [[PoliceAreUseless Lumens Are Useless]]: If pressed, your Lumen mentor will coldly monologue about the importance of Lumens to the safety of Nova and how Elodie is merely a mortal queen, while Lumens owe allegiance to magic and Nova itself, and much ado is made of Julianna choosing to accept the disgrace of being a Lumen for the greater good. Unfortunately, outside of the milk viper incident within the first few weeks of the game and the Lumen lessons themselves, your mentor will never actually help you of her own volition again, and if she does, it's because you've alerted her to a danger that she would otherwise not have noticed. [[spoiler: This is especially jarring for Julianna, who feels responsible for Fidelia's death because she wasn't there to prevent it, but will actually be in the castle during most of the magical attacks on Elodie and do absolutely nothing to help, including letting Togami kill Joslyn (even though she's a skilled swordswoman and powerful Lumen combatant, the exact same skills Elodie needs to win that battle) so that he'll take Joslyn's crystal and leave Nova alone. ]] In a greater sense, the cycle of magical tragedies (and the reason Lumens are so poorly regarded in general) are because of the tendency for power-hungry Lumens to be useless as protectors of anyone but themselves.
