* FanNickname:
** Slightly altering every ''FFXI ''race and giving them new names doesn't stop many fans from calling them Hume, Elvaan, Tarutaru, Mithra and Galka. Though at this point, the game is ''so'' damn popular and has brought ''so'' many new players to the "Final Fantasy MMO scene" that a number of new players [[{{Irony}} call the cat people in XI "Mi'qote" and the small folk "Lalas"]], which naturally drives XI veterans ''nutso''.
** Titan's Mountain Buster attack is given the nickname of "Table Flip", due to the animation making it look like he's [[FlippingTheTable flipping an invisible table.]]
** [=LOLDragoon=]. Dragoons are infamous for constantly dying to avoidable damage. Their Jump has an animation lock, so if they time it poorly, then Jump will leave them in range of an AOE attack they won't be able to dodge. Square-Enix created an 8-bit version of the Titan EX fight. In the fight, the Dragoon dies almost immediately. Even SE has embraced the [=LOLDRG=] meme.
** Team jump rope, used to describe how most end game content is done where everyone in the party has to follow every scripted step in the battle in harmony with one another and anyone who screws up a step will likely cause the party to wipe.
** Popotoes/Potatoes, Giraffes and Ala Mhiggers for Lalafells, Elezen and some Highlanders respectively
** Pepsiman for the Living Liquid boss of the Alexander raid.
** Before unsynced duties were a thing, the strategy of farming T2 and ignoring mechanics by waiting 10 minutes for the (easy to outheal) enrage was called "Allagan Rave" because of all the blasting lights and waves the boss shot out while enraged.
** Bard Mode for the Minstrel's Ballad trials (a pun on bard, referring to the minstrel, and hard mode, as this is the Hard/Extreme mode difficulty the Final Bosses).
** Many players like to call Mor Dhona as "More Donuts".
** The Weeping City of Mhach, for its sharp difficulty increase compared to its Void Ark predecessor, has been dubbed the ''[[TotalPartyKill Wiping]]'' City of Mhach.
** The Great Google Library, for the Gubal Library. SE acknowledged this one; the quest to unlock the hard mode version of the dungeon is called "Let Me Gubal That for You."
** Some people have taken to calling [[spoiler:Ilberd]] ''Sloppy'' or '' 'Ol Sloppy'' due to a particular taunt he uses during his final boss fight.
** Jenga Tower for the strange looking blocky tower shown at the Ruby Sea during the ''Stormblood'' previews.
** The Kojin, a race of humanoid turtles in the ''Stormblood'' expansion, were almost immediately referred to as [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles ninja turtles]].

* HesJustHiding: [[spoiler: A lot of fans who loved Lahabrea believe that his death in the end of 3.0 isn't true and is just trapped inside Nidhogg's eye used by King Thordan. Despite the fact that Elidibus confirmed that Lahabrea was slain and the fact that Thordan used Lahabrea's soul as fuel for his aether, fans believe that he will be freed from Nidhogg's grip and will be released to fight the Warrior of Light again.[[note]] This theory got squashed at the end of ''Stormblood'' where after Shinyru is defeated, Estinien notes that Nidhogg's eyes are completely drained of aether and he stabs the eyes to destroy them. Whatever was left of Lahabrea, if he was there at all, is gone for good.[[/note]] At the same time, fans of Gaius believe that he is still alive because they NeverFoundTheBody when he was killed off in 2.0. This is while ignoring the fact that the guy was in the dead center of an ''explosion'' while in a weakened state. The same theory was also presented for Papalymo after his HeroicSacrifice in 3.5, though 3.56 reveals that his magicked tattoo on Yda/Lyse faded away after Shinryu's broke free of the cocoon, which signifies that Papalymo is gone for good. He also shows up as a ghost in the end credit sequence for ''Stormblood'', further signifying that he's really dead.]]

People have also overlooked a character who suffered a similar death in 2.2; the Sahagin priest that possessed the Echo was able to leave his body and overtake another before his soul was eaten by Leviathan and never seen again afterwards. Lahabrea basically dies in the same way against Thordon.[[/note]] At the same time, fans of Gaius believe that he is still alive because they NeverFoundTheBody when he was killed off in 2.0.

** The Weeping City of Mhach, for its sharp difficulty increase compared to its Void Ark predecessor, has been dubbed the ''Wiping'' City of Mhach. ("Wiping" being a slang term for a TotalPartyKill).

** Getting ''anything'' for a prize in the Gold Saucer due to the absurd prices and the relatively low payouts for the mini-games. Want to unlock a new hairstyle? Costs 8000 points. Want that complete set of the Gambler outfit? Costs several 10K worth of points. Got your eye on that Fenrir mount? That'll cost you ''one million points''. You could try your luck at the weekly lottery and hope you hit it big, but like any form of lottery, it's all luck-based.

The only upside is that ''un''like real-world lotteries, you're guaranteed to win more than you paid... just not necessarily a ''lot'' more.

** The rare cards limit rule. You can have just one rare card in your deck and no more than that. [=NPCs=] [[MyRulesAreNotYourRules gleefully ignore the rare cards limit rule]] as they pummel your deck with a deck that has nothing ''but'' rare cards.[[note]]Rare cards are counted as anything that has a better rating than your lowest card rating. For example, your first starting deck can only have one card that is above one star while your four remaining cards ''have'' to be composed of one-star cards. Once you get the rule relaxed a bit when you collect 30 cards, you're allowed to have a deck full of two-star cards and one card that is stronger than two stars. This increases again at 60 cards at which point you're allowed to have as many three-star cards as you want. This also makes the aforementioned Random rule even more grating. Since the NPCs always get the same few cards it's clear they don't have the number required to actually use as many rare cards as they do.[[/note]]

** With her greater story prominence in ''Stormblood,'' [spoiler:Lyse]]. The fandom seems divided about whether her growth over the course of the 4.0 story is believable, given her prior ditzy personality and her fairly meteoric rise to a key leader in the Ala Mhigan Resistance.

** ''Stormblood'' adds even more yay in general. Of particular note, a Princess whose dedication to her cursed handmaiden draws more than a few parallels to SleepingBeauty, and a fashion mogul's assistant come from afar who takes a distinct interest in aforementioned Ul'dahn ''entertainers''.

** A location example but [[spoiler: The Royal Menagerie, more specifically the garden area you can wait in while queueing for the final boss]] in ''Stormblood'', earned many fans for it's SceneryPorn overlooking [[spoiler: Ala Mhigo]] and relaxing atmosphere. Unfortunately it can't be revisited though WordOfGod has said it'll open up again due to fan demand.



** This trend continued in ''Stormblood'', with Bethan Walker now '''really''' stealing the show as Alisaie and her performance being a significant driver in cementing Alisaie's EnsembleDarkhorse status. Eleanor Matsuura as Yugiri is also considered to be excellent and, tragedy around Sian Blake aside, probably the best performance the Yugiri role has gotten in English to date. The general quality of the voicework is also considered to have taken a further major step forward, with the only quibble being over the pronunciation of "Far Eastern" terms (which appears to be more a directing issue than an acting one). The otherwise uncredited actor for Susano has also been noted for his excellence in capturing the essence of the character, helping Susano become a fan-favorite Primal.
