*** This assessment is basically ''true'', as its implied that his continuous suffering is essentially the universe's immune system reacting to the abomination that is his every thought, action, and very existence.

** When Black Mage [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2004/05/29/episode-423-not-so-apt-pupil/is told by Sarda that "there cannot be power without sacrifice"]], he takes it to mean he must make a HumanSacrifice... and does so with his "allies" (it didn't stick). Then Sarda tells him that Black Mage must be ''close'' to that which is sacrificed... so Black Mage slaughters them ''again'' (still didn't stick), and Sarda says that the sacrifice must ''mean'' something to Black Mage (who again misinterprets it as the sacrifice being the ''means'' to an end). Once Sarda [[TimeStandsStill stops time]] to spend ''seven hundred years'' trying to explain it to Black Mage, he finally says that Black Mage must ''care'' about what is being sacrificed... which completely stumps Black Mage.

Misuse. Developers Foresight is when the game has a response for unlikely player actions.
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Sarda uses what he refers to as your typical "rewrite reality according to your will" spell. When Black Mage copies it, it turns out to be a "rewrite reality according to ''Sarda's'' will" spell instead. ** Also, when Sarda makes Black Mage puke his own intestines out, BM tries to cast the spell back at Sarda. It turns out that Sarda created a spell with the specific description of "Make Black Mage puke his guts out".
