* 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.]]

Your actually forced into giving her the CanonSue status.

That One Boss: No context.
* 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.]] ** They certainly are better in Portable 2

* %%* ThatOneBoss: Magas Maggahna.Maggahna. * 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.]]

Cut for having no context; if anyone wants to re-add, discuss it here first.
* CompleteMonster: Light Master Dohgi (See MoralEventHorizon).

** 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.

The description fits Spotlight Stealing Squad better than Black Hole Sue.
* 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.]]

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: No one seems to mind that you can find random traveling cake shops, Pizza Huts and [= KFCs =] in dungeons ranging from VR simulations to military complexes. Or ''Portable 2's'' random BonusBoss subspace dragon at the end of some dungeons. Or when [[GuestStarPartyMember Colonel Sanders]] joins as a party member. Gurhal is a strange place.
