Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: The Wings of the Goddess story is ultimately about [[spoiler:two diverging realities struggling for their existence at a critical point in time that decides which of them prevails as the primary reality and which is relegated to oblivion]]. Nowadays ''Videogame/FinalFantasyXI'' coexists with ''Videogame/FinalFantasyXIV'', whose revamping it helped to finance during the transition from 1.0 to 2.0, and [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Square Enix appears to have decided ''Videogame/FinalFantasyXI'' will get no more major expansions]] - also, ''Videogame/FinalFantasyXIV'''s director Naoki Yoshida is in charge of Square Enix's Business Division 5, which handles the company's online games.


Added DiffLines:

* LootDrama: The trope was originally called "The Ridill" over the infamous drama Ridill would cause when it dropped. The Ridill was a sword that was usable by multiple classes and had an extremely useful effect, but was a 5% drop off a boss that only appeared once every day.
** Other items that have similar effects on the player-base but at a reduced rate due to being more specialized, even rarer, etc include Defending Ring, Hauteclaire, and anything from Absolute Virtue.

** Not to mention the large number of yuri dojinshi and fanfics involving Mithra...

** Also, there's the job combo of [[GameBreaker Red Mage/Ninja]]. There are videos on Website/YouTube of players with this combination soloing enemies that were [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kM6evZwIyTw intended to be fought by full alliances]].

Added DiffLines:

** Due to the numerous similarities between the playable races in both games, fans going to FFXI from FFXIV and vice versa tend to nickname one game's race after their equivalent from the other (ex: calling Tarutarus, "Lalafells", or calling Mithras, "Miquotes".

* CanonSue: Shantotto appears to qualify - consider that during an Aht Urhgan mission she, a [[SquishyWizard Black Mage]], can pretty much tank a major boss, and during that fight rack up damage numbers from the lower level elemental spells which would be impossible for players. When you do have a chance to fight her, TheBattleDidntCount.



* TheScrappy: Naja Salaheem. [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard Ooooh,]] Naja Salaheem. Prishe is a combination of this and CanonSue, but still has a rather large fanbase. Hmm, wonder why.

Added DiffLines:

* ScrappyMechanic: The "Level Down" mechanic, wherein when a player dies they lose EXP, and if they lose too much they will actually level down. The reason this is so hated is because in most endgame missions a player is almost expected to die, sometimes multiple times, in order to complete it. Worst, the mechanic only makes sense from an MMO FakeDifficulty stand-point, in that it makes sure a player can never be truly "done" with leveling up a character, thus forcing players to play more just to make up the level(s) they've lost.

* {{Alt-itis}}: An interesting case, since you can change class and start over from level 1 without creating a new character.

Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuel: The Gusgen Mine has the ghosts of faceless children going through repeated motions, and their faint crying and moans in the background -- it freaks out pretty much everyone the first time they go down there. ''Something'' horrible happened there, but [[NoodleIncident it has never been explained]].

Added DiffLines:

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Shantotto. Square seems to have taken notice of this, and included her as the de facto representative for this game in crossovers.
