** Cyan is slow as molasses, has the worst magic stat in the game, and his Bushido techniques require you to sit and wait several seconds while you charge up the meter, during which time the fight is still ongoing and the rest of your party can't enter commands (this is changed in the iOS/Android version). While some Bushido moves deal decent to strong damage, most are various status effects and a low-power Life Drain, which are only moderately useful in general and worthless against bosses. There are a few specific strategies that make him useful though, such as teaming him with Gau, Umaro, or any berserked character so that someone's attacking while Bushido charges. On lower levels spamming Fang is fairly effective too. The problems with Bushido are apparently somewhat fixed in the iOS port, as it apparently allows you to input commands for other characters while waiting for Bushido to charge.

* On the Lete River, there's a sequence where the player can loop around endlessly, fighting enemies. Your party includes Banon, who can cast Cure 2 on the party for no MP cost. Set the cursor to memory to keep him casting it, get a Turbo-fire controller, and watch as your party fights enemies again and again to slowly power level with little player involvement and risk. The age of emulators make it even easier with speed-up commands to level grind hours worth of battles in a couple of minutes. Strictly speaking for MinMaxing, this is a terrible idea as it limits the stat boosts your party will get later in the game, but if you don't care about that, having everyone at level 20 or so will make the game up to at least the Floating Continent a snap.

** Terra's field sprite bears a physical resemblance to [[Manga/DragonBall Bulma]]. Keep this in mind when playing ''DissidiaFinalFantasy'' where Kefka is voiced by Shigeru Chiba, who previously voiced Emperor Pilaf from ''Manga/DragonBall'', and his somewhat Yandere-esque traits towards Terra throughout the story, when Pilaf attempted to blow a kiss towards Bulma.

** The SNES version of the game had a relic called "Goggles" which were supposed to render the wearer immune to blindness. However, the truth is the Blindness status effect was bugged and had no effect on gameplay, making the goggles in turn have no effect either. [[TheGogglesDoNothing The Goggles were doing nothing]] long before this trope was ever named! Or even before ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' named it in the first place.

** In at least all versions, you can unlock the RNG needed for the beneficial Joker's Death. All you have to do is use an Echo Screen, then ''immediately'' switch to Setzer to use the slots. If done right and a bit of luck, it gives you a Joker's Death that kills all enemies, regardless of resistances. This was ''not'' fixed in both the PS port and the GBA rerelease.



** There is a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQvLvRdfmk4 glitch]] that allows you to spam [[OneHitKill Joker Doom]], Setzer's ultimate attack which is supposed to be accessible only under certain circumstances, in almost every boss fight (and it is effective in nearly all of them). It's dangerous to pull off without frame-precise timing (although PauseScumming allows you to perform it even in real-time play), but naturally, tool-assisted {{speed run}}s abuse the hell out of it. [[http://tasvideos.org/1555M.html Here]] are two [[http://tasvideos.org/549M.html examples]].

** The opening. You play as an unnamed girl in a Magitek weapon. You have an insane amount of power for the opening fights, and the atmosphere is mysterious and quite literally chilling.

*** Or you can have him Rage Rafflesia/Nightshade, whose Charm spell acts as a Confuse status that cannot be cured, and no boss in the game is immune to it. Did we mention that Gogo can also use Rage, for double the gamebreaking fun? Because they can!
