* BrokenBase: The 2013 re-release for Steam includes a "Magic Booster," which gives every character in the party 100 of most low- to mid-level spells. The fanbase is divided between those who see it as a great way to avoid having to repeatedly draw spells, those who [[StopHavingFunGuys don't like how it takes away from the challenge]], and those who think that the apparent need for a feature like this reflects badly on the game.

* BrokenBase: BrokenBase:
** There is no denying that the game caused a quite bit of a stir with the ''Final Fantasy'' fanbase when it first was released; the story and especially the changes to gameplay were, and still remain, somewhat controversial. Everything related to the spell drawing mechanic tends to create debate between players over whether it was an interesting innovation or just really annoying busywork.

* HilariousInHindsight: Selphie's "Booyaka!" intro in almost every one of her online blog entries would later become the CatchPhrase of ReyMysterioJr.
** [[PresidentEvil Vinzer Deling]] looks [[CelebrityResemblance suspiciously like]] UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush.
** The first ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' character to make use of social media is named Selphie.
** The PluckyComicRelief character's ultimate finishing move involves circumnavigating the globe before punching his foe. ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'' fans would probably get a huge laugh, wondering whether this game was the inspiration.

** The reason for Irvine's seeming tendancy to crack under pressure in Disc 1 takes a different turn [[spoiler: when you realize he was lying and was actually cracking under the stress of being asked to shoot the closest thing he had to a mother. And he is the ''only one'' that can remember this.]]

* [[DracoInLeatherPants Seifer In Leather Pants]]: Seifer. The guy's a {{Jerkass}} for most of the game, but the fangirls love him anyway.

* AmericansHateTingle: Rinoa is beloved in Japan, but in the American fanbase she is something of a BaseBreakingCharacter. This is at least partly due to the translation. A lot of Rinoa's dialog that was intended to be cute and childlike, highlighting her innocence compared to the military-trained [=SeeDs=], tended to get replaced with lines that just made her sound like an immature, spoiled brat. Her tendency to be TooDumbToLive certainly doesn't help matters.

* DamselScrappy: Rinoa, at least before she achieves her GameBreaker status.

* DamselScrappy: Rinoa, at least before she achieves her GameBreaker status. She consistently makes ''incredibly'' stupid and impulsive decisions, leading to her remaining this throughout a good chunk of the game.

* {{Wangst}}: While Squall is guilty of it, unlike most examples of this, he doesn't burden others with his problems or invite anyone to a pity party. Rather, his wangst is internal, and like his other feelings, he CannotSpitItOut.
