* {{Foreshadowing}}: There are a lot of references to various hand and arm tropes involving Vivi. There's personal interests (gadgets) and chosen career (thief), a nightmare in which losing a hand figures prominently, a childhood incident when she did witness someone losing a hand, an encounter with a villager who has severely injured her forearm with a hedge cutter, and even an [[TheseHandsHaveKilled These Hands Have (almost) Killed]] moment after her attempted assassination of Eldor (she actually did managed to kill Sylas, just doesn't know it. All of this implies that Vivi's hand or hands will be central to the final resolution.

* MagicKnight: Ryn is a traditional example, who has two thirds training as a Fighter, and one third as a Wizard. Others like Ilias and Sandril may qualify.
