* 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. Of particular note is the Lucavi and the way they merge with humans via the Zodiac Stones and a DealWithTheDevil, which is almost exactly the way that the Beherits and Apostles work in the aforementioned series.

** The highly political nature of the story, alongside the war based on the historical UsefulNotes/WarsOfTheRoses, also make this a comparable video game adaptation of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''.



** 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. Its remakes and re-releases helped spread its reputation, and it received a proxy ColbertBump due to being based on TheWarsOfTheRoses, the same RealLife conflict that inspired ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' and its [[Series/GameOfThrones TV adaptation]], and sharing a number of themes with those works.

--> '''[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Rapha]]''': Look, Marach! A new dawn is risen. Can... can you see it? So often we sat together talking, waiting for the coming of first light. We'd talk of the journeys we wanted to make together, wouldn't we? How when the war ended, we would go back and visit our old village. You remember, Marach, don't you? Don't you? Tell me you do! Tell... tell me you'll still go!

** The fact that support spells can miss is near-universally disliked. Especially since their accuracy can be less than an offensive spell, which doesn't make a lot of sense unless characters are trying to dodge Haste. It does, however, make some sense as a spell's damage and hit chance [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve are based on the target's Faith stat]].

Added DiffLines:

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: "Brave Story" sounds a lot like "Warren Report" from ''VideoGame/TacticsOgre''. Not surprising as they are by the same composer and serve the same function.

** Rapha and Marach's innate skill would assign them a random number of hits to random squares within the 5-square-cross targeting zone you give them. The RandomNumberGod being the JerkAss he is, actually ''hitting'' anything with this ability is less likely than winning the lottery.

The RandomNumberGod being the JerkAss he is, actually ''hitting'' anything with this ability is less likely than winning the lottery. As a result, the Hydra monster class is better at their jobs than they are, both because it's easier to restrict their targetting area because their equivalent skills have no vertical tolerance while Rapha and Marach have the default 3, and because the monster's skill has higher minimum and maximum hitcounts than theirs.

** [[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.
