Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: It's possible that the developers originally planned to have Teta survive the [[PlayerPunch events of Fort Zeakden]]; if she is hacked to join the party, she doesn't appear with Ramza's sprite (whereas any other {{NPC}} simply appears as Ramza when forcibly added to the roster) but with a custom sprite that is otherwise DummiedOut of the game. Concept art also exists, calling this character an "elegant flier", but developer Yasumi Matsuno has since forgotten the context in which the art was drawn.

Added DiffLines:

* SpiritualAdaptation: It's been compared to ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'''s "Golden Age" arc, with similar themes of rising up to nobility, a mundane setting getting rather biblical with monstrous religious-themed demons, and even similar scenes of characters bonding by making whistles from leaves/grass.

** By far, the worst of all has to be Duke 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.

* HoYay: Ramza and Delita have this even after they split, and especially to those wearing their ShippingGoggles.

* HoYay: HilariousInHindsight: Thanks to a BlindIdiotTranslation, a priest aligned with the CorruptChurch will call Ramza a "heresy" rather than a heretic, implying that Ramza's very existence is a crime. In ''VideoGame/Disgaea2'', the Dark Court mechanic is introduced by giving a subpeona for ButtMonkey Tink to appear and answer for the "crime" of his existence.

** One of the most practical reaction skills in the game is Auto-Potion. It causes the player to consume the cheapest healing potion in your inventory, as a counter-attack, saving you the trouble of wasting a precious turn to heal them yourself. It does come with the downside of consuming said potion, which can get expensive if the skill is used ''en masse'', but by the time you can ''employ'' it ''en masse'' you probably aren't hurting for Gil. Its other downside is that, to learn it, you have to spend time as a Chemist. ...A healing class that is also the only class in the game which can use guns. Yeah, they're [[SarcasmMode really awful to have on your team]].

** Reception to it was underwhelming initially, possibly because it was both a spin-off and everyone was still focused on ''Final Fantasy VII'' which had come out not too long beforehand. Over time the game has developed a small (compared to other FF's at least) but very devoted fanbase who praise its interesting political storyline, unique DarkerAndEdgier take on ''Final Fantasy'', and its rich, layered battle and job system. It also helps ''a lot'' that both ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' and its [[Series/GameOfThrones TV adaptation]] shares similar themes used in the game years later.

** InUniverse, Ramza's reputation has since turned around now that the Durai Reports have been rediscovered.

** There is the so-called Crystal Glitch. When you kill an enemy and they crystalize, sometimes you can pick up the crystal and get a choice of enemy abilities to learn. In the War of The Lions remake on the PSP if you select the last skill listed, you learn ALL of the skills listed instead of just the one you pick.
