** On the high end, we have Sundown, as listed under GameBreaker, he is essentially the most powerful character in the game. So powerful he can three-shot the FinalBoss if he gets lucky. He's supposed to be balanced by the fact that [[GlassCannon his health is the lowest in the game and that his defences are weak]]. However, this only really manifests in his chapter - in the final chapter, you have three other characters able to keep enemies from touching him and move Sundown to places where he cannot get hit easily.
** And on the low end, we got Akira and Sammo. While they aren't exactly ''bad'' per se, they're just outclassed by people who either require a lot less work to make effective (Li, Cube), or have much greater payoffs (Yuan). Akira specifically is more of a support and healing character with some offensive abilities as well - unfortunately, that's the same role that Cube has, and Cube sacrifices the crowd control Akira has for raw healing.

He is generally considered so overpowered that ''not'' using him is considered to be a self-induced challenge.

Many of the crowd-control abilities also [[UselesUsefulSpell are useful against standard enemies but not against bosses]].

** On the high end, we have Sundown, as listed under GameBreaker, he is more or less the most powerful character in the game, being able to practically three-shot the final boss with some luck. He's supposed to be balanced by the fact that his health is the lowest in the game and that his defences are weak, making him into a GlassCannon. However, these are usually offset by the fact that he can be moved to positions where he will ''rarely'' if at all get attacked, removing that weakness easily. Sundown is so powerful that excluding him from the final party is often seen as a challenge run.

* ColbertBump: While not large, the game did get a bit more attention once people figured out that it might have inspired a few tracks in VideoGame/{{Undertale}}.

* SignatureScene:
** The second half of [[spoiler:Oersted]]'s chapter, which contains a huge amount of plot and stands out immensely from the rest of the game. The direct follow-up, [[spoiler:Oersted's version of the final chapter]] is also lauded due to [[spoiler:being a reverse Boss Rush that you can effectively Rage Quit by wiping out all of existence.]]

** King Mammoth. He has 999 health, which would be manageable in and of itself. However, his Great Eruption (which deals major damage to the whole screen) and Huge Explosion (which deals MASSIVE damage to everything around him) also cover the battlefield in Fire tiles, which hurt you but '''heal him''', and significantly at that. On top of that, he has a ridiculous resistance to physical attacks and such ludicrous speed that your attacks will barely ever hit him at all, which means that it's entirely possible for the boss to continuously heal faster than you can deal damage.
** Lord Iwama, mostly if you attempted a pacifist Oboro run.
** When it comes to required bosses, Max Morgan from Masaru's chapter is an utter bastard. If you slip up just once, he'll kill you in three hits. (And remember, Masaru ''has'' to take hits in order to learn his skills!) What's worse is that because of the paralyzing chance on German Suplex, he won't always allow you to take a turn in between attacks, allowing him to combo you from full health to death in one go on rare occasion.

** Sundown is considered by many to be the most powerful character in the game. Two words: Hurricane Shot. The attack is a semi-random attack that will hit for 999 damage more often than not. Even despite that he is a veritable GlassCannon and can be easily killed in his chapter, when you got Masaru, Pogo, and Oboro in the way you can easily mitigate or even remove that weakness altogether and allow sundown to pretty much three-shot most bosses, including the FinalBoss.

* GoddamnedBoss -- Voice Heart. After encountering him several times in an extra dungeon, you will want to scream "JUST LEAVE ME ALONE." It's quite gratifying when [[spoiler:you get to tell him off and kill him at the end of the dungeon.]]

* FanPreferredCouple -- In Japan, at least (where a fandom has actually had the chance to develop) Akira/Li. Also surprisingly popular is [[HoYay Sundown Kid/Mad Dog]] and, even more bizarrely, [[FoeYay Odi Wan Lee/Li]]. Yes, really.

* EndingFatigue: The process for the GoldenEnding. [[spoiler:First, you have to find and recruit everyone. Then, you have to go through all their bonus dungeons and fight the bosses at the end. ''Then'', you have to make your way to Oersted and beat Odio. ''THEN'', you fight your way through a boss rush with each of the chapter bosses. The only migating factor that you're likely to become so overpowered that these will be more of a nuisance than an actual challenge.]]
