* GameBreaker: Concentrate breaks a number of skills clean in half, since it turns almost every skill into an AlwaysAccurateAttack and low accuracy is what keeps them balanced. Three races can learn it. Double Sword is also fairly ridiculous, but that's Human-only. Doublecast is terrifying when you consider that it works on Summoner abilities - yes, including Madeen.
** The only thing worse than the above skills is using them with other classes' moves. A ninja with two swords? Unnerving. A paladin wielding two swords, both of which are insanely powerful? Scary. A paladin wielding two of the aformentioned swords and toting Ultima Shot, arguably the most powerful human spell in the game? Freaking ''terrifying''.
*** Ultima Blow is unnecessary if you get Sonic Boom, which deals normal damage to multiple enemies at a nice range. Paladins are also capable of equipping a combination of equipment - Nagrarok, Sequence, Peytral, and Ninja Tabi - that allows them to have a total movement range of eight squares, over twice what they ordinarily have and more than enough to cover half a map by themselves. In combination, this gives them the same attack range as a ''Gunner''.
** Also, equipping a Bangaa Dragoon (highest attack base stat and growth in the game) with the Gladiator's Ultima Sword (triple attck damage) and the Templar's Weapon Atk+ (guess) can kill literally anything. Yes, even the StoneWall Toughskins. Even the 999 defense Flans. It is even possible to one-shot the final boss with this.
** Raising a Gunner as a Mog Knight gives you access to Ultima Charge from across the screen. If it's not possible to scrounge up the MP for that, you can also spam Stopshot or Charmshot, which disable any enemies they don't outright kill. Add Counter and you have a killing machine.
** Steal: Ability, intended as a late game accelerator pedal, can be acquired with a couple of hours of cheesing, turning it into a DiscOneNuke for both Humans and Moogles. This frees munchkins from having to waste time learning abilities and lets them move straight into stat optimization.
** HP<->MP is generally not terribly useful, but it *does* break any DuelBoss situation clean in half; as long as your speed is high enough to get a turn for every turn your opponent receives, it will block all damage, because you regenerate MP every turn and the reaction skill will nullify all damage if you're not at 0 MP when it fires.
*** Combine it with Immunity, which makes you immune to poison, and you will be outright ''invincible'' when you face Llendar in the palace.
** Make 3-4 Viera Assassins with Sniper multiclass. First round, everyone go invisible. Second round, everyone appear behind target and use either [[OneHitKill Last Breath]] or Ultima. Now you have your very own [[AmazonBrigade Viera Death Squad.]]

** Out of the Totema bosses, Ultima can be this if you don't bring anything that resists charm, which this early in the game can be hard to accomplish especially if you don't know what's coming. Enjoy having your team rip itself apart instead of actually destroying the crystals for turns on end. Oh and if you brought a healer with with the Life skill, prepare to watch them undo all of your work in seconds by reviving the crystals.

Of course you can also just wait for Charm to be illegal, turning this into a BreatherBoss.

** Fans are divided regarding the legitimacy of Marche's reasoning to destroy Ivalice.

* ViewerGenderConfusion: Marche, in his Illusionist costume. More or less invoked with just about all of the human characters, especially the generics - for the most part they're all androgynous enough to be interpreted as either male or female. You'd think FF fans would be used to {{a|mbiguousGender}}ndrogyny by now.

* EsotericHappyEnding: While they lost what they had in Ivalice, and while at the very least they will never see their friends there again (subsequent games have confirmed that they didn't quite ''destroy'' the place), Marche and company have at least learned to face up to their problems and work towards self-improvement instead of avoiding their problems.

* TierInducedScrappy: No one likes Engineers. Their mass-status effect skills ''are'' potentially game-changing... but they're also completely random, and potentially hit friendly targets. This can be compensated for by ensuring the team is immune to the conditions they could inflict, but really, it's a lot of effort for little result.

* FridgeHorror: The scene where the real world transforms into Ivalice includes random bystanders turning into monsters. That's right, the main characters might be better off in this wonderful fantasy world, but there are plenty of other people who now exist to be beaten up over and over until they either die in a Jagd or are captured and sold into slavery. [[FridgeBrilliance It might actually help justify Marche's actions]].
** Note also that "[[TheUndead Lost Souls]]" you fight the first time you save Professor Auggie have the same names as the bullies who picked on Mewt in the beginning . . .
** Also, the "Fire! Fire!" mission, involving the player having to stop a group of Bombs from burning down a neighborhood, with the implication that if you fail, the judge watching over the fight won't do a damn thing to stop the arsonists.
** As mentioned in the JerkassWoobie section... Ritz's reason for wanting to stay is her white hair. That she gets bullied for. Given that KidsAreCruel, there's a great chance that she was bullied into having a mental breakdown.
