* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: [[spoiler:Ghost!Straybow]] in Akira's version of the Final Chapter. Sure, he's [[spoiler:justifiably having a HeelRealization over his sheer scumbaggery against Oersted]]; but he still comes across as largely in denial over [[spoiler:causing him to finally snap and become Odio]]. And yet the narrative still tries to present him as just another tragic victim; needless to say, many -- if not most -- players definitely see him as a [[AssholeVictim certain kind of victim]], all right.

*** That weird person who runs away from Oboro emitting some kind of [[HellIsThatNoise horrible roar]].
** "Saint [[spoiler:Alicia]]," one of the final boss's attacks. The spell displays an angelic-looking female figure hovering over the target, before she quickly ''melts'' into a horrifying hag with a mouth of fangs while letting out a [[HellIsThatNoise horrible death wail]] (a sound so complex that, like Lavos' roar in ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm most emulators have trouble fully replicating it]]). [[FridgeHorror Context only makes the spell even worse:]] [[spoiler:it's named after the woman Oersted once loved. He's so consumed by hatred that ''this'' is how he sees Alicia now.]]

** The Mecha chapter's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCVD8fykgRk opening song]], which makes you feel like actually watching a Super Robot anime. And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TMSUHJ4D9c here]] is a gloriously hammy English cover.

** The boss theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQVc5_uNmdk&hd=1 Megalomania]], hands down. It would later appear in the sequel to ''VideoGame/TheatrhythmFinalFantasy'' as a DLC song.

* TheScrappy: Many people have voiced contempt towards Straybow. [[spoiler: Did not help that he was the instigator for the events that lead to Oersted's FaceHeelTurn over his haboured jealousy.]] Alicia to a lesser extent [[spoiler: for leaving Oersted in favor of Straybow]].

Added DiffLines:

** The item crafting in Akira's chapter. After a certain event, Toei will be able to upgrade items in your inventory into theoretically better ones, as well as robot accessories Taro (and Cube in the final chapter) can use for new attacks. The problem is, you're never given any indication what items will turn into what, or that some items can upgrade multiple times, and sometimes when they're upgraded, there are multiple items they can become, and it's completely randomized what item you will actually get. Also whenever you want to initiate item crafting, you're subjected to an annoyingly long segment of Toei thinking and thinking before rushing off downstairs to craft the item. And perhaps most frustratingly of all, most of the time you'll go through this and not get anything at all with Toei simply saying "Oops, I messed up." While you don't lose the item you tried to have upgraded (and thus are free to immediately try again) it forces you to sit through the lengthy sequence of Toei thinking and rushing downstairs, often times just to fail again. Lots of patience, SaveScumming and an FAQ are required if you want to get the absolute best equipment for Akira's chapter.

* ShoutOut: The six rivals in the Present chapter are arrayed on a blue background, in the same style as ''VideoGame/MegaManClassic'' or ''VideoGame/StreetFighter''.
** Pogo's second-best weapon is [[Film/TheGodsMustBeCrazy a soda bottle]].

* FridgeBrilliance:
** It seems rather jarring (although not unexpected for RPG standards) for [[spoiler:Oersted]] a.k.a. Odio, the friggin Demon King, to be beatable. However, recall Uranus and Hash's words: "As long as there is someone who believes in you". The little kid does in fact still believe in him, even after his death. No wonder Odio is beatable. He wasn't being hated enough.
** The main theme is somewhat strange compared to most RPG themes, in that it starts out strong before it gets to the main melody, instead of building up to it. This is because the main theme is actually half of a song, starting roughly in the middle. The first half? [[spoiler:"Wings that Never Reach," aka Oersted's Theme.]] Part of the latter song has the ''exact same notes'' as the first part of the former, as if they were meant to segue directly from one to the other.
* FridgeHorror: On Oersted's [[spoiler:second visit to Devil's Peak]], the enemies are all named after various phobias, making it seem like a rather literal form of [[FaceYourFears facing your fears]]. However, [[spoiler:quite a few of these enemies take the form of [[CuteMonsterGirl scantily-clad young women,]] and [[ThatOneBoss the strongest of them]] is called [[SexIsEvil "Gynophobia."]]]] If Oersted ''is'' facing his fears in this dungeon, then maybe [[spoiler:[[GameplayAndStoryIntegration the reason so many of those monsters look like women]] is because he's slowly starting to have doubts over [[RealityEnsues whether Alicia will really forgive him for accidentally murdering her father]].]] Then [[spoiler:he runs into Straybow and Alicia]], and pretty much all his worst fears are confirmed in the span of a few minutes. For a HeroicMime, Oersted has ''issues''...

* EnsembleDarkhorse: For someone who can be possibly KilledOffForReal and be only an afterthought, Li is very popular for the fandom, due to her being [[TheSmurfettePrinciple the sole female that can be in the final party]], and her overall ActionGirl quality. Oersted, due to the {{Troperiffic}}-ness could count, but ultimately he's not, as he's [[spoiler:actually the main antagonist Odio.]]

** [[spoiler:Oersted/Odio]] could count, too. Granted, [[spoiler:he ''is'' the main villain of the game and wants to punish all of humanity and ruin many people's lives, but considering all he went through that led to his turn to villainy, it's hard not to feel at least a little sorry for the guy]].
