Added DiffLines:

** Then there's this bizarre sound filter over the voice acting in the game that makes it sound distorted. While this is supposed to simulate being a Guardian Spirit, all it really accomplishes is just making the voice acting sound much worse than it actually would be without it.

Added DiffLines:

** The Goddess of Ice and the Wizard Shadow, both of which follow a completely different set of rules from the rest of the game's fights and are [[LuckBasedMission completely luck-based]].

** Requires a minimum of two playthroughs to do. Also, have fun spotting every single potential LostForever quest magnus, cause you need to feed Pac-Man 147 to finish the sidequest.

** There are many people who outright ''hate'' Xelha for [[SpotlightStealingSquad stealing the spotlight]] for a sizeable chunk of the game, being a borderline MarySue, having one of the game's most grating voices (and more lines than ''anyone'' else), geting hit with a DistressBall, and wearing an eye-searing pink outfit. Oh, and also [[spoiler:her half-assed DisneyDeath scene]].

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: [[AwesomeMusic/BatenKaitos Lots]]. Considered Creator/MotoiSakuraba's best works, and for good reason. Even people who hate the games admit the soundtracks are fantastic.



** ''Baten Kaitos Origins'' has [[spoiler:Quaestor Verus]], who, while acting under the guise of a ReasonableAuthorityFigure, coldly masterminds the plot to [[spoiler:become the Emperor]] by taking advantage of everyone else. Before the game's events, he [[spoiler:uses a just born baby Sagi (who is probably his illegitimate son) in a lethal experiment that fuses pieces of dead evil gods with living beings]]. During the game, he orders Shanath (a ''massive'' JerkAss in his own right) to cross the MoralEventHorizon by [[spoiler:taking Sagi's mother Gena's wings off in the public election speech]]...just to smear on the reputation of someone getting in his way. Later on, just as [[spoiler:Baelheit]] is about to consider a HeelFaceTurn, [[spoiler:Quaestor Verus]] shows up, murders him, and starts '''gloating''' about all his deeds.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: [[AwesomeMusic/BatenKaitos Lots]]. Considered Creator/MotoiSakuraba's best works, and for good reason. Even people who hate the games admit the soundtracks are fantastic.
* CultClassic: This game is the very definition of one. Not many people know about it, but go to any Website/YouTube vid about one of the many [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Crowning Songs Of Awesome]] or ask [[http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=387226 a fan]], and you'll see a very enthusiastic response.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: Geldoblame's final form]] at the end of the first game. Utterly harmless as a boss, but the dissonant final music, the creepy atmosphere with the technicolor sky and weird reflections of his face just flying around for no good reason, [[spoiler: Xelha's advisors being swallowed by the ground]], and finally, the fact that he's [[spoiler: just a face coming out of the ground that exhales some weird green fog, spits fire and even ''shoots laster beams out of its eyes'']] make the fight with him very unsettling. The weird jerky animations and low-quality texture don't help. Borderline {{Squick}}.
