** In the fourth episode, everyone looks super-serious when they try to hold each other up with their highly threatening cell phones. Why exactly they would do that with a ''summoning device that takes time to work'' is baffling. Oddly, the phones ''could'' be used as 'guns' in-game, with characters ([[CutscenePowerToTheMax in cutscenes, anyway]]) able to zap targets through the summoning app... somehow. Since that ability is absent in the anime, however...

* ScrappyMechanic: The Fate System, where nearly everything you say and do impacts your relationships with characters. While people love the character development it offers, the execution itself is terrible. Characters and stories (particularly in the Triangulum Arc) often hinge so much on it, but the game offers no real indication how you're doing. It forces you to either make mistakes and lock yourself out of an ending you might want, or only play the game when you have a guide nearby. Being able to have so many options for your character's personality is near-meaningless when most of your options require you to act in certain ways depending on the plot or characters. Further, some answers you can give characters are considered "wrong," even when they logically should be - the Anguished One usually appreciates your kindness to him, but sometimes he'd rather have you say something harsh or ignore the chance to be nice. The system becomes even worse in the Triangulum Arc. To do well with it, you have to obsessively micromanage all your time, play a character in a way you might not agree with, and keep a guide handy at all times.

** Ronaldo also manages to do it, saving the protagonist party at some point and genuinely working with them to [[spoiler:Find Yamato]]
** Even Daichi for some, when he finds out about what [[spoiler::could happen to the protagonist if they Don't defeat Arcturus]], he expresses his worries in a Brotherly way.

* TierInducedScrappy: Io and Makoto to an extent. Because they're {{Magic Knights}} that lean toward attack and magic trying to balance it out, one stat will be better than the other but in exchange will leave the vitality and agility at a horrible pace. As a result Yamato is the best choice of the {{Magic Knight}} because instead of balancing all of his stats out, he maxs attack and magic while sacrificing vitality and agility making him a {{Glass Cannon}} instead of a {{Magic Knight}} that favors either attack or magic. His innate resistance to physical (and almighty!) makes him the ideal user of anti-most as well.

* CanonSue: Miyako Hotsuin, to some. Her character is basically a mixture of Yamato's mentality, but instead of thinking 'Survival Only For Those Who Are Worth Something', she goes for the 'The Few Shall Die For The Sake Of The Many', which already goes against Yamato's established character, of whom she's a replacement. [[spoiler: Miyako is also actually a part of the Triangulum, not really human and will fight the party, which is a copy of the Anguished One's plot in the main arc, who wants to help humanity, but cannot go against his origin as part of the Septentriones.]] Aside from that, everyone in the party is instantly smitten to various degrees by her and she has no actual flaws. Her 'flaw' is being {{Moe}} and shy-cute when complimented.
** On the other hand she lacks many of Yamato's stronger points, such as only caring about personal capacity beyond rank or belonging to JP's, meanwhile she shows herself incapable of trusting others, both in combat and with her plans, her leadership is strong around JP's but she's absolutely incapable of gaining the loyalty of anyone of the team (Yamato was disliked by those closer to Ronaldo, but he certainly was respected, she was incapable of even stopping Daichi of tagging a -chan on her name), she shows remarkable lack of care about losing important targets [[spoiler:In wednesday, were it not for the protagonists, Nagoya and Osaka would've fallen for sure, and she still berated the team for stopping Spica in the last line of defence, that SHE left devoid of normal defences.]]
** Also following her plan leads to the worst ending the game can offer. [[spoiler:Had she just asked correctly Alcor about her plan, he could've told her that him being the administrator would've only protected the world for 2000 years, and without the protagonists, mankind's potential would've been severely diminished (What started the whole mess to begin with!)]]. All in all, Miyako isn't perfect at all, and pales in comparison with RB!Yamato, who is pretty much TheAce [[spoiler:He takes down Arcturus pretty much by himself ''twice'', protects the MC by himself while being assaulted by immortal foes for two days, avoids some of the worst possible outcomes in the past, and his path leads to the best ending.]].
