* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper: Weiss becomes somewhat annoying during some parts of the game, such as the final phase of the battle against Wendy where he might keep repeating the same thing over and over again: he also tends to get annoying during the mandatory part of the fishing minigame by repeating the same hint over and over again instead of asking whether you're even at the right location, which is an easy mistake to make since there's a beach right next to the person who gives you the fishing equipment which is where most people would try out fishing instead of slavishly staring at the map to follow the destination marker elsewhere, only for them to end up thinking that they suck too much at the mini game to proceed since all the fish found on the beach next to the fisherman are far too strong to be caught right away.

* GameBreaker: The Phoenix Spear. Without upgrades, it is the best combination of speed and raw attack power, and can one-shot most enemies by the time Nier gets enough money to acquire it, making the rest of the game trivially easy.

* ThatOneSidequest: The Runaway Son. You have to run about half-way around the world to bring the little bugger back! And then [[spoiler:it turns out you were being scammed the whole time.]] Worse yet, [[spoiler:you get no reward for completing it.]]

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: The Shadowlord is meant to be seen as a tragic figure after TheReveal, and most people agree on that, but it might be a bit hard to sympathize with him since he's putting his own desires over that of everyone else. [[spoiler: He kidnaps Yonah and implants his daughter's soul into her, despite the fact that she's a sentient being in her own right.]] Which kind of break the parallel built with Nier who may do unsavory things for Yonah, he always take time helping people as he knows times are rough for everyone.

* TheWoobie: Emil is one of the most optimistic and positive characters by the end of the game despite having a pretty shitty life, being turned into a human weapon whose only purpose is to kill his sister (another human weapon) if she goes rogue, being treated like an outcast by everyone by Kaine, Nier and Weiss once he actually finds friendship, etc.

* TheWoobie: The main characters could all qualify. In fact, most of the cast could qualify. Hell, the ''Shades'' qualify, once you learn what they actually are.
** With everything Emil goes through you could hardly blame him if he ended up suicidally depressed, but he actually is one of the most optimistic and positive characters by the end of the game.

* SuperlativeDubbing: Due to its unusual localization process (which led to, among other things, the cutscenes being made with English voice actors in mind as far as mouth flaps go) and excellent voice direction, ''[=NieR=]'' is widely considered to have one of the best English dubs of any Japanese game ever. It even seems like most people prefer it over the Japanese dub. In particular, Liam O'Brien's performance as Grimoire Weiss is widely praised.
