** Why can't you advance from Wizard to Mage in the original if your alignment is too low? Because wizardry is demonic magic, and EvilIsNotAToy. If you hit rock bottom on the Alignment scale before you're ready to become a mage, you can't advance and negotiate a better DealWithTheDevil, because the demons control ''you'', not the other way around.
* GameBreaker: Princess+Lich. The Princess gets two White hit-all attacks, the Lich gets four hit-all spells that can be anything except White. Add a cleric class for a medic and a High Sky monster to carry the unit, and watch it tear anything and everything that opposes it to shreds. Just remember to watch your KarmaMeter.
** Alternatively, you can ditch the cleric for another lich/sorcerer/muse/doll master and put some undead in front of the unit to tank instead of the high flying monster. Undead are completely invulnerable to anything that isn't white magic or healing (although that kills them incredibly quickly), so the unit has a lot of survivability even without a healer. You do lose some maneuverability, though, but your [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill increased damage output]] would be worth it if there was anything that could survive the Princess+Lich combination in the first place.
** Alternatively, since most bosses towards the later half of the game are low alignment and thus more vulnerable to white magic, Princess + 2 Seraphim with your choice of unit to do the tanking (Platinium Dragon anyone?) means a veritable hailstorm of white magic hit-all attacks.
** Haborym in Tactics Ogre may count as well. He's a good Swordmaster, but due to his initially high Dexterity (and high growth too), all his status magic has high chance of hitting. So give him a Petrify (even if he has Fire affinity), and watch your enemies turn to stone with nobody to cure it.

* MagnificentBastard: Baldwin Glendale. Dude like ''defines'' this trope.
** Also [[spoiler: Rashidi from the same game. If the player's Chaos Frame is low enough, they receive a special ending which implies the entire game was just one massive ploy on his part so he could be resurrected.]]



* TearJerker: Due to the limitations of story views, the original game only has ''POSSIBLE'' TearJerker. Including Yushis vs Mizal, as well as Rauny vs Hikash.
** Tactics Ogre, however, plays this one rather straight with Plancy's death and Denim convincing Kachua, [[spoiler:to not take her her own life. Or slaying Guildus in the Neutral route. Or Lans Hamilton's final fate]].

** Tactics Ogre...where to begin? Archers are almost game breaking from the beginning, what with extended range on high ground and no counter attacks. But more likely offenders are pretty much every single thing found in [[BonusDungeon Hell Gate]]. Dragon magic hits every enemy on the map, or creates grossly overpowered swords, or lets you infinitely reset a character to lvl 1 without losing stats (yes, you can repeat this for unlimited stats), etc. If you even get partly into Hell Gate the end battles will be easier than the first battle in the game as a result of all the game breaking booty you acquire. Canopus in ''Let Us Cling Together, moreso in the PSP version since Archers got toned down. Canopus flies, is an extreme crack shot and has an overall powerful stats, including good dodging rate. He's been called a mini-[[FinalFantasyTactics Orlandu]] this way.

* PlayerPunch: [[spoiler:For the Tactics Ogre PSP remake, if you choose the Chaos route... Vyce will kill the new girl Ravness ''right off bat''. Which is basically: Pick who's gonna die, Ravness (and Ozma later) or Sisteena & Selye.]]

** Also, Andoras mentions a lot of stuff such as how he is a member of the Nirdam royal family but it's not elaborated too much in the game. (Heck, these details are introduced ''in the final dungeon'', and only if you have certain party members in the battle!)

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeBrilliance: Why is Shiven so OutOfFocus if you take the "B" path in ''Knight of Lodis'', whereas the other mutually exclusive character (Orson) gets closure? It's actually a justified example of "OutOfFocus", since he's a ninja who was hired to spy for Cybil - so he was actually ''intentionally'' off-screen.
** Why does Vyce have such drastic personality shifts depending on your participation in the Balmamusa massacre? Simple: because his jealousy is a two-way street, even when he makes the "good" choice not to join in on the massacre.
** Why can't you advance from Wizard to Mage in the original if your alignment is too low? Because wizardry is demonic magic, and EvilIsNotAToy. If you hit rock bottom on the Alignment scale before you're ready to become a mage, you can't advance and negotiate a better DealWithTheDevil, because the demons control ''you'', not the other way around.

** In Tactics Ogre, some of the bosses may make you think MyGodWhatHaveIDone. Not only do you wind up accidentally fighting your own countrymen if you screw up, but a couple death quotes may be sad. For example, one boss dies and mentions that he can't get medicine for his sick daughter now. You find someone wants revenge for killing her husband awhile ago... and starts off by stating that she's ''pregnant'', so you're killing her and her baby. Oh, and the wife's an optional battle, but avoid that, and in Chapter 4, you'll be notified that Sisteena (the girl who briefly appeared in Chapter 1) was Olivia's sister and that wife was holding her captive, sold her to someone and she got killed.

* TheScrappy: A lot of Tactics Ogre player really dislike Kachua for her rather excessive amount of {{Wangst}}. [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap Players only look at her better when she eventually]] [[CharacterDevelopment matures up]] and becomes a GameBreaker.

** There's also the canon ending for Tactics Ogre: The Knight Of Lodis. See the DownerEnding above.
* TheWoobie - [[spoiler:Chaotic route in ''Let Us Cling Together''. Just when Ravness could've followed things right with her heart, Leonard reveals her half-Gargastan route... then Vice kills her on spot. You'll probably feel sorry for her at that point.]]
** [[spoiler: It’s hard not to feel sorry for Cressida in the chaotic route. Not only does she lose her sister, mother, and possible brother-in-law from war, her father doesn’t seem the least bit concerned about it. While Nybbas’ two other children have each other, Cressida is all alone with no one but herself.]]

* WhatAnIdiot -- Duke Ronway underestimates Denim, Kachua, Vice and Leonard. Seriously, if you know that someone is willing to either massacre a whole town or go it alone and survive, you do not piss him off.

* CharacterDerailment: Tristan is not particularly ambitious, and in many of the Good Endings will AbdicateTheThrone in favor of your character or Rauny, but in the [[TrueNeutral Hanged Man ending]] he [[spoiler: assassinates you in the night for being a ''potential'' threat to his rule, after you personally toppled Endora for him.]] [[MoralDissonance This is supposed to be the good guy?]]
** Also, Vice suddenly loses most of his hot temper in the Law route, but since he becomes a heroic character in exchange, this derailment is usually welcomed.
