*** Tidus' further reaction to said news, slamming his hand on the ground and curling up. It becomes hilarious when the rest of the group walks past him in slow-motion.



** It's hard not to also feel this way about Yuna. She grew up as an orphan whose father had committed a HeroicSacrifice for the people of Spira, idolizing him and training to eventually follow in his footsteps, knowing that she would meet the same fate if she did. Everywhere she goes, people flock to her and cheer her, but only because ''they know she has promised to die for them''. She's constantly being asked to send the souls of the dead and comfort people in their grief. She [[spoiler: begins to fall in love with Tidus]] and allows herself to dream of a future with him, only to break down crying when she realizes she can't abandon the people who are depending on her. She's then told that [[spoiler: to defeat Sin, not only will she have to die, but one of her loved ones will as well, as well as that [[SenselessSacrifice her hopes of defeating Sin for good are futile]]]]. Finally, when she [[TakeAThirdOption does find a way to vanquish Sin permanently]], it [[spoiler: costs her the love of her life and leaves her [[HeartbrokenBadass heartbroken]]]] to do so.

There's also heavy implication that, before Kimahri took her to Besaid, she had been shunned by people in Bevelle [[spoiler:because she's half Al-Bhed, because of her mother]].

Added DiffLines:

* BossInMookClothing: This is actually a type of enemy. They're often large and come into battle alone. The intention of the game was most likely for you to use Yuna's Aeons to beat those guys (similar to how every playable character has a type of enemy they're particularly good against), but you're not really required to do so.

** A RecursiveTranslation gives BigBad Seymour the hilariously stupid name [[UnfortunateName Simon Chubby.]] It's almost impossible to take him seriously after seeing that.[[note]]In east Asian markets especially China, there are pirates who release movie DVDs with containing only the cinematics of the game ripped and stitched together into a movie- probably to make please those who just want to watch the cinematics but not play the actual game. The recursive translation appears to come from the subtitles of one such DVD which contained cinematics ripped from the Japanese version of the Game[[/note]].

Added DiffLines:

* CrackPairing: Similar to the in-game mechanic from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', there are several points in the story where the player is given the option to have flirtatious/romantic dialogue with [[OfficialCouple Yuna]], [[ShipTease Rikku]], or, in a few rare instances, ''[[NoYay Lulu]]'', which will affect certain dialogue options later on.

* TheyJustDidntCare:
** This is starting to become a bit of the sentiment towards the HD edition (at least, in regards to the actual HD graphics). The backgrounds and [=FMVs=] look fine, fantastic even. But the regular cutscenes have managed to create ''worse'' lipsync than even the original version had due to the new faces. In addition, while the girls (save Yuna) generally look fine, the male party members' (save Auron) new face models come across as akin to rubber masks, with the common citing being Tidus having an overly round face now, and Wakka having a creepy Cheshire Cat-like grin whenever he speaks. There's also the fact that the majority of [=NPCs=] still use their original face models, so seeing a party member standing next to them in a conversation can be rather jarring. However, this mostly only applies to X, as X-2 had higher quality models to begin with and thus didn't see the need for redone faces. In the end though, Square can't really take too much blame, as the HD remastering process wasn't done in-house (like ''Kingdom Hearts HD [=ReMIX=]''), but rather, outsourced to a Chinese company.
** For audiophiles, the new remastered audio has also been a sticking point. The remaster soundtrack has mostly [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic been considered a success]] but the Audio has a tendency of losing it's Dolby Digital Surround Sound every time the game cuts to a FMV Cutscene. It's Kingdom Hearts Remaster counterpart did not have this issue.
** One of the most-requested features for the HD Remaster was the option to skip cutscenes, as having to sit through them on replays (or having to witness the same one over and over again before one of ThatOneBoss) significantly damages the game's replay value. This was not addressed in the [=PS3=] or Vita versions of the HD remaster. Come the [=PS4=] version, the players finally got... an option to use the original or remastered soundtrack. The PC version, however, finally introduced a way to skip cutscenes, but only [=FMV=] ones.

** For many first-time players, facing off Seymour for the first time may as well be a wake-up call. If they've been playing the game so casually that they're underleveled to this point, they most likely won't make it past the third round with Seymour.

If they've been playing the game so casually The sudden difficulty spike (ie a pair of henchmen that they're underleveled to this point, they most likely won't make it past focuses on healing the main boss, a freaking hi-health Aeon in the middle, and multi-ra spells in the third round with Seymour.round) technically tells the player that it's time to stop goofing around and start taking things seriously.

** The musical piece, Zanarkand, a melanchony tune. Despite being emotionally powerful when it was originally revealed, It's hard to listen to it without breaking into fits of giggles nowadays, especially after Machinima/TheGmodIdiotBox abused it in a corny AprilFools joke machinima. Doesn't help that it sounds like a boilerplate piece played during dramatic moments on soap operas.

** Much of the voice-acting. While groundbreaking when the game came out due to being the first fully-voiced Final Fantasy game, the acting quality hasn't aged well. All the kids Tidus talked to at the start of the game sounded like they were voiced by one same voice actor, and the acting was still somewhat corny at best, especially when compared to later titles like Final Fantasy XIII.
