** [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Dycedarg Beoulve]] initially appears to be just another ruthless, power-hungry {{aristocrat|s Are Evil}}, but turns out to be one the most evil characters in the game. He [[{{Patricide}} murdered his own father for power]] and, along with his childhood friend, Duke Bestrald Larg, plunged Ivalice into civil war against Duke Goltanna. Then he [[EtTuBrute backstabs and murders Larg as well]], and when his brothers Zalbaag and Ramza call him out on his actions, he has the audacity to be offended. When he merged with Adrammelech, he murdered Zalbaag as well.

When he merged with Adrammelech, he murdered Zalbaag as well. It's also implied that Dycedarg is not possessed by the Lucavi but actively ''working with him''; unlike Wiegraf/Belias, Adrammelech's personality is nigh-identical to that of Dycedarg.

** The "Cowardly Lion" for [[spoiler: Hashmal/um]], among others (no, we don't mean [[TheWizardOfOz that one]]), in reference to his underhanded tactics during the game.

** Thanks to ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidV'', the fact that Delita Heiral played everyone like a damn fiddle becomes chuckle-worthy.

** Nelveska Temple. Not only are players limited by having to use Reis and Beowulf if they want Reis' human form, but the stage is stacked against the players. For one, two Hydras begin the stage pillars next to the party, out of reach of most units but in excellent position to attack on their turn. Construct 7, the boss begins at the entrance of the temple meaning he can only be attacked from the front (and may choose to go further into the temple, making him even harder to hit) and can attack from across the stage. But the worst are the three Cockatrices. They can fly so the terrain means nothing to them, and have the ability Beak, which has a very high chance of Petrify. All this combines to make an exceptionally difficult map. And on top of that, the map is home to the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity Plus One Spear and Shield]]; getting them means you'll have to delay the battle, and they'll both be {{Permanently Missable|Content}} if you miss them.

* CommonKnowledge: Barrington forced himself on an underage Rapha, right? The original game only had dialogue that ''could'' be interpreted that way, nothing is confirmed. Ironically, the retranslation in ''War of the Lions'' amps up the rape imagery in that speech, but at the same time essentially confirms that he had not forced himself upon her (though he outright states he would eventually).

%% Barrington has been judged not to be a Complete Monster by the cleanup thread. Do not re-add this example without first consulting the thread.

** By far, the worst of all has to be Duke Gerrith Barrington. He starts out by burning down Rafa's village and then saving her and her brother, but ''not'' for remotely benevolent reasons. Her brother he seems to be grooming to be a unflinchingly loyal soldier, and what he does to Rapha is simply unspeakable.
