** Speaking of Yamato, if you decide to side with an opposing faction during the endgame, he will go full-on Yandere on the main character, saying that the other faction had "corrupted" him and went mad during their battle.



** The battle against Benetnasch. The human characters [[spoiler: including Anguished One, if one is on his route]] cannot harm it at all, so all damage must be done by demons. And when Benetnasch's HP is lowered enough, the second phase begins, in which it separates itself into four pieces, each modeled after one of the previously beaten Septentriones. And it's still only damaged through demons.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The normal [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIWkRdXEAYg Confrontation battlefield theme]] is definitely something to listen to while rushing to engage demons.
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aokdYand9vY Operation Starts]] theme is also definitely something to listen to.
** There's also [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOaJ84eBO6o Challenging Fate]], the battlefield theme that plays when you rescue someone from their Death Clip.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxRXBxRux4I Septentrion]], the battlefield theme for Septentrion battles, is strangely calm and gives a sense of just how alien your opponent is.

* HoYay: One could make a serious case for Yamoto having a severe crush on the Hero (albeit due to his stunted emotional understanding he doesn't view it in those terms).

* TierInducedScrappy: Io and Makoto to an extent. Because they're [[MagicKnight 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.

** Also from the Triangulum arc, Io is quite to determined to win Miyako's friendship. She even grabs her hand in one event, and in that same event, it almost looks like a lover's spat.

* {{Moe}}: Io's quiet demure and nice figure makes her quite Moe. There's also Airi, being the smallest girl in the game, and an adorably little {{tsundere}}.

Added DiffLines:

** If you have Battle Aura, attacks that do 50 or less damage will not harm your team at all, and it comes with a very low cost of 10 MP per skirmish. If you have Anti-Most and something and a Resist/Drain/Null/Repel Phys trait, you and your team cannot be touched by anything short of Almighty moves. Bonus if you have Anti-Almighty, making you virtually untouchable. If you have a Tyrant (which auto-restores MP for you), you also never run out of MP to keep this going.

** Fumi's also majorly popular, due to her [[DeadpanSnarker snarky attitude]], intelligence, and being one of the most powerful characters in-battle, often being able to solo tough bosses by herself.
