Added DiffLines:

*JustHereForGodzilla: Many people pick up the game on the merits of the Dream stories, which have been critically acclaimed. They have little bearing on the main plot, which many people agree is not anywhere near as good.

** The audience is constantly told about how great Sarah is, but [[ShowDontTell we never see any of these talents on display.]]

* ComplacentGamingSyndrome: Outside of the CharacterSelectForcing bits, once you get all the immortals, they will ''never'' leave your party. Tolten, Cooke, or Sed are often put in the 5th slot. Better train your immortals well - because [[spoiler: You can only use them on the FinalBoss]]

Added DiffLines:

* TierInducedScrappy: Mack is in a rather odd position. His gimmick is spirit magic and the fact that he is a hybrid. However, accessories can make anyone else (Especially the immortals, who are forced into your party) capable of using Spirit Magic, and his health and defense are pretty low for a hybrid. That said, he ''still'' does essentially carry the party through a boss fight in disc three, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny which is quite hilarious when you think about it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* UncannyValley: A few of the old peoples' faces - even for the time, fell ''right'' into the UncannyValley.
** Gongora himself - there's something about him that just seems... off. Not just his exceedingly wide eyes.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The soundtrack was written by Nobuo Uematsu, so of course, it's (mostly) outstanding.

* CompleteMonster: [[spoiler: BigBad Gongora]]]] is identifiable as a SmugSnake even before it's clear that he's the villain, but as the game's backstory is revealed it becomes clear that he crossed the MoralEventHorizon before the game had even begun. Since several of the main characters of the game are [[{{Immortality}} immortal and unkillable]], he had to get ''creative'' in getting them out of his way, which he did by sealing away their memories, leaving them completely amnesiac and unaware of their origins, which all of them agree is [[LossOfIdentity something like being a walking corpse]]. For him to be able to do it in the first place, they had to go through something [[TraumaInducedAmnesia traumatic enough]] that they wouldn't ''want'' to remember, so he abducted Kaim and Sarah's daughter and left them believing she was dead, forced Seth to [[SadisticChoice kill her best friend to save her son]], and set giant monsters loose in [[TheHighQueen Ming's]] kingdom to slaughter her subjects until she [[HeroicSacrifice agreed to block off her own memories to save them]]. As a result, Kaim and Seth both end up [[CriminalAmnesiac working for him]], Ming becomes a figurehead in the country she's ruled for a thousand years, and Sarah [[FreakOut goes insane]] for several decades. And to top it all off, he [[PeoplePuppets magically controls Jansen]] and forces him to attack his friends and love interest, apparently just to be a {{Jerkass}}.
