** 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.

** Ultima [[spoiler: "spitting" out Alma for the final battle]]. Again, none of the Lucavi have ever done anything like this before. Granted, they all were willing hosts, but given how big a deal it was for [[spoiler: Ultmia needing Alma's body, it just comes out of nowhere]].

* 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 PactWithTheDevil, which is almost exactly the way that the Beherits and Apostles work in the aforementioned series.

** 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 LostForever if you miss them.

** [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Dycedarg Beoulve]] initially appears to be just another ruthless, power-hungry {{aristocrat|s Are Evil}}, but turns out to be quite possibly the most evil character 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.

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