** This tendency prompted Sega to introduce the "GUARDIANS Boost Road," encouraging players to run chains of other missions for greater gains compared to spamming a single mission over and over.

** This tendency prompted Sega to introduce the "GUARDIANS Boost Road," encouraging players to run chains of other missions for greater gains compared to spamming a single mission over and over. [[ExecutiveMeddling Of course, it took several months to implement in the US/EU versions, due to delays in updates.]]


Added DiffLines:

*** What didn't help was that, with the English versions at least, all of those nerfs took almost forever to release, causing players to become increasingly annoyed at people spamming use of them, [[NotMyProblem while the Japanese versions never had the problem.]]

* ComplacentGamingSyndrome: [=CASTS=] and Beasts were more commonly used by serious players (For melee and gun-using classes) than Humans or Newmans due to their LimitBreak racial abilities. For [=TECHNIC=]-using classes, however, Newmans (particularly female Newmans) were the top pick.



* FanNickname: Anga Jabroken, in reference to Anga Jabroga's gamebreaking status.
** Also Lolitechers, who are Newman females Techers who [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin ...yeah.]]
* GameBreaker: Anga Jabroga, however, a future update will nerf this Art. Whether or not it will still be a Game Breaker is something only time can tell.
** Shotguns are considered to be this these days by some of the players, especially in the Gunmaster class.

* GameBreaker: Some weapons and Photon Arts were considered this during the game's run.

Anga Jabroga, however, an Axe Photon Art, was infamous for being capable of easily wiping out crowds of enemies. It was nerfed later on, though.

* MemeticMutation: "Segac," a DetractorNickname for Sega due to their lackluster management of the game outside of Japan. Originating from the [[BlackMarket Kubara weapons]] that are said to be just as good as their more-legit counterpart. [[InformedAbility Allegedly.]] (Though they certainly are better in Portable 2.)

%%* * ThatOneBoss: Magas Maggahna.Maggahna is quite the LightningBruiser. It has plenty of powerful attacks, it moves around a lot (and ''loves'' to spam its teleport,) it can stop damage with a shield, and breaking its bottom part makes it even harder for melee characters to damage it.


Added DiffLines:

* TierInducedScrappy: Humans received some flak for [[MasterOfNone not being as specialized as the other races]]. For melee and gun-using classes, they were outclassed by Beasts and [=CASTs=] (especially since they lacked SUV Weapons/Nanoblasts.) For [=TECHNIC=]-using classes, Newmans had better stats suited for those classes.

* CanonSue: Emilia from Phantasy Star Portable 2. At first she's just a lazy girl with a spirit trapped inside her. As you learn more about her, however, you find out that she's [[spoiler:a genius practically from birth, crucial to a massive supercomputer, can make calculations that strain even the robotic [=CASTs=], designed Lou's parts as scribbled notes while she was bored, and otherwise is pretty unstoppable at anything that requires her mind, all as a teenager]]. She even has [[spoiler:a tragic backstory, that requires other characters acting out of character to even happen. Neither Obel nor Laia seem like the types to greenlight Project Tenma. [[FridgeBrilliance Perhaps]] the ones who greenlighted Project Tenma are the same ones who deemed Vivienne (who was an unknowing ''and'' unwilling Illuminus spy) and the player character (For going after her) traitors.]]

*** What's even worse/funnier is that one of the requirements to get the True ending is to indulge and be nice to her. Your actually forced into giving her the CanonSue status.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: A minor example. Importing a character from ''Phantasy Star Portable'' to its sequel [[spoiler:results in ''no'' significant storyline differences. Even characters whom you've met before in the first game don't seem to recognize you, and the only one that does is Vivienne, who's an ''optional'' partner in ''[=PSP2=]'' (unlike, say, Tonnio and Liina, both of whom are met at the start of Chapter ''2'' and aren't optional), and even then that only amounts to a couple of changes to her dialogue upon meeting you. The fact that there isn't even an attempt at an explanation for it is also bothersome. As such, there are players that feel that SEGA dropped the ball in this regard, but at least importing still nets you a unique title and some neat items.]]

** The Illuminus become this after unleashing a modified SEED-Virus on Moatoob which turns thousands of people (most of them Beasts) into SEED forms--about 300 of which [[ShootTheDog you personally kill]]--then goes on to infect [=CASTs=] across Gurhal, leading to Episode 2's DownerEnding.

* BlackHoleSue: Laia in ''Ambition of the Illuminus''. Though she's actually a well-rounded character, the fact remains that the Story Mode of ''Ambition'' is all about her. Your character is nothing more than a background extra.
** Subverted in Episode 3. While a good amount of focus is placed on Lumia becoming a full-fledged Guardian, your character is no longer just a background extra. The player character can now make decisions that can impact the story and which ending you receive, leading up to [[spoiler:becoming the new commander of the GUARDIANS Mobile Defense Force. ...Too bad it's implied that you stepped down and gave the position to Orson.]]
