** 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}}.

** The Angel of Darkness, who combines a paralysis attack with one that steals HP.

to:

** The Angel of Darkness, who combines a paralysis attack with one that steals HP. The reason this boss is so hard is because he can stun you, which prevents you from being able to use defense magnus, thus he gets a full combo off, which allows him to steal for as much as possible. He can deal over 1100 damage to one party member (party members have around 1600-2100 at this point in the game), steal 550 (a decent combo at this point of the game will deal 400-600 damage most of the time), and it leaves a character stunned to boot.


Added DiffLines:

**2 weeks of leaving the game on for the Shampoo to change? Way to screw with completionists, Monolith!

** Wonder Momo Magnus in ''Eternal Wings.'' Second-best healing in the entire game, 100% cure on every status (including death) in offense, 100% resistance boost to every status in defense. Best of all, unlike Deluxe Sushi and many other recovery Magnus, it never wastes away, eliminating the need to go make more. Even better, you can get these as soon as you hit Anuenue, since they evolve from the Momotaro Magnus, which evolves form the relatively commonly dropped Peach Magnus in the Ancient Library. Get a handful, leave your game turned on overnight for a few days, and barring a stroke of the worst luck possible, you'll have to actively ''try'' to lose. Hell, just having one or two on each character makes even the otherwise really tough FinalBoss a joke.

** [[spoiler:After TheReveal, [[CompleteMonster Verus]] becomes an extremely scary person. With that NightmareFace portrait, the things he talks about, and his general plans, it would seem bad enough, but it isn't. Check the room he supposedly used to "confide with his Guardian Spirit" for [[TortureRoomCellar an extremely unexpected, but fitting, surprise.]]]]
