* AwesomeMusic: The new music tracks generally got a warm reception, particularly [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUQ2pe_3Mcs The Eidolons Shackled]], the Mysterious Girl's BossRemix of her theme.

* GoddamnBats: Literally. Mostly because they're just resilient and fast enough to cast Bloodfeast on you 10 or so times per combat. Which does like 20 damage and puts "Sap" status on your party members. This is especially annoying in Edge's and Porom's {{Bonus Dungeon}}s, the former of which is a [[SpeedRun Time Trial]] and the latter of which has a [[TimedMission time limit]].

* VillainSue: The Mysterious Girl. Every time she appears until the final two tales she casually knocks the protagonists aside and leaves with a Crystal or sends the heroes fleeing, seizes all the Crystals and conquers all the major kingdoms in record time (at worst it takes her a few days, depending on how one interprets the timeline) is able to cast powerful magic and summon the Eidolons, is mentioned to look like [[MsFanservice Rydia]], and [[spoiler:is redeemed during the ending by performing a HeroicSacrifice to save the party.]]

** Porom's Challenge Dungeon. Being a white mage, you're meant to help various {{NPC}}s by healing them, giving them items, saving them from monsters and putting wayward spirits to rest. But the monsters that are encountered are very powerful, you have a time limit of 15 minutes, and the placement of spirits, {{NPC}}s and your starting location is random. Furthermore, the spirits don't even appear unless you speak to the right {{NPC}}s. Some of the enemies you need to fight include Mad Ogres, magic-resistant monsters encountered at a time when you have three mages and one physical fighter. [=NPCs=] also bleed you dry asking for expensive pieces of equipment and wanting Esuna cast on them five times or more, draining Porom of 100 MP because she has to be the one to cast it, instead of the generic White Mage you also have in your party who also knows the spell. The most annoying part is that even if you help everyone, you're still not guaranteed to get a good item, and all but 1 of them can be gotten elsewhere with infinitely less frustration.
*** Mad Ogres only resist direct magical damage. They are surprisingly vulnerable to status effects, so Black Mage can incapacitate them with Sleep or Stop. And once Porom learns Mini...

** Luca. Since when has ''Final Fantasy'' had a female character who wasn't fan service, contributed a lot to the plot, and was well written and extremely likable.
** In order, Lenna, Faris, Krile, Terra, Celes, Aerith, Garnet, Yuna, Lulu, Ashe. And that's just the main series and before 2008.

Luca, for being an effective AscendedExtra that's just a powerful party member with a non-fanservicey design (uncommon for the main series series) and before 2008.a humorous crush on Palom.

* NightmareFuel: The final boss, [[spoiler:[[BigBad The Creator.]] Whereas most final bosses in the series build up to an epic final battle that indicate just how hectic things will get, this time around you're against an entity that is practically EldritchAbomination with steadily decreasing sanity, a horror-esque ambiance that pulls no punches, and, by the end of it all, a relentless and destructive foe repeatedly attacking and chasing after you which you seemingly ''cannot kill'' until a HeroicSacrifice finally makes him vulnerable.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Fanon}}: There are plenty of fanworks depicting Edge and Rydia [[spoiler:being Cuore's parents]] due to the many ship tease moments between the two and Rydia [[spoiler:raising the last surviving Maenad.]] The ending credits in the IOS version fuels this up.

* TheScrappy: Despite being an actually pretty decent character, you'll find few fans who like Ceodore all that much. It probably doesn't help that he seems to draw more from [[WhiteMagicianGirl Rosa]] than he does [[LightningBruiser Cecil]].

* TheScrappy: Despite being an actually being a pretty decent character, you'll find few fans who like Ceodore all that much. It probably doesn't help is understandable, though; he's a PinballProtagonist who barely affects the plot at all, has very little personal growth when compared to returning characters and is so average that he seems to draw predicatably gets {{overshadowed by|Awesome}} more from [[WhiteMagicianGirl Rosa]] specialised characters who have less versatility but more raw power in a specific niche.
* ScrappyMechanic: The Moon Phase System. When the moon is at a certain phase, it alters a character's stats. If your main party consists of a certain warrior class, you'll be finding yourself wasting Tents until you get the moon phase you need. If that weren't enough, it sometimes changes at random moments rather
than he does [[LightningBruiser Cecil]].using a Tent.

If that weren't enough, it also changes at set time intervals if one goes too long without using a tent or inn.

* TierInducedScrappy: Harvey and the Calcabrina dolls; Harvey's abilities are fairly sub-optimal, the twins both have terrible stats that can only be reasonably increased using equipment found [[LateCharacterSyndrome right at the very end of the game]] and all three have a low number of bands, many (if not most) of which require ill-advised character builds and party combinations to put together, which leaves them at the bottom of the party ladder for pretty much all players once The Gathering comes around.
