* HilariousInHindsight: The infamous "banana ban" struck China, when on May 2016, the country [[http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-news-from-elsewhere-36226141 banned eating bananas on live streams]] due to EroticEating.

* GameBreaker: The Excalibur. It deals a minimum of 1050 damage (before defense and weapon resistances, of course), hits a whole group, never misses, and unlike other weapons, ''never breaks''.

** It's actually advisable for the whole party to die at least once during gameplay, because if you haven't died at all up until you reached Odin, then the fight with him will be much harder.

* AccidentalAesop: The original Japanese script involved a smuggling ring of illegal opium in Edo. The 1991 official English localization could not mention such drugs, so changed opium to "bananas". An NPC [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this by asking why bananas have to be illegal in the first place. It's obvious to most players that criminalizing bananas is silly, and the sheer organized crime involved might not exist without a legal ban on bananas. In the [[TruthInTelevision real world]], this is an increasingly vocal argument against the [[DrugsAreBad War on Drugs]], especially after a 2011 UnitedNations commission declared the international War on Drugs to be a costly, violent failure -- drug crime and drug violence are usually caused by drug bans, not vice versa.

* ScrappyLevel: The Nasty Dungeon, self-consciously so. Technically doubles as a BonusDungeon ''and'' a BreatherLevel, since [[spoiler:that world's only MAGI is found right by the entrance.]]

* ThatOneBoss: Venus and [[spoiler:Apollo]] tend to be stumbling blocks for many players.
** For this troper, it was Odin. Venus wasn't bad at all, and [[spoiler:Apollo]] will die on his own, so you can just sit back and heal constantly.
** For this troper (And other people who didn't know that [[spoiler:Apollo]] dies eventually), he is almost impossible.

(Hint: [[spoiler:equip one of your members with the Aegis magi and use it each round]]).

* AwesomeButImpractical: The Seven Sword (or Seven-pronged Sword in the remake). It hits seven times with one swing. The catch? You get only seven swings with it, and you need both a very high Strength to deal significant damage, and a high Agility to score all seven hits with it. And it doesn't even raise those stats if equipped on a Robot.
** And on top of ''those'', the only way to get it is by beating the absurdly powerful enemy, [[ThatOneBoss Hinawa]]. Hinawa only appears in the [[VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon last dungeon]], is arguably as powerful as the [[FinalBoss Arsenal]], if not more so, and it's a slim chance that you will get the Seven Sword anyway!
* AwesomeYetPractical: The Excalibur. It deals a minimum of 1050 damage (before defense and weapon resistances, of course), hits a whole group, never misses, and unlike other weapons, ''never breaks''.



* LighterAndSofter: Compared to the first of the ''SaGa'' series. [[spoiler: EverybodyLives (except a few redshirts) in this game. Well, everybody who wasn't evil and corrupted by the MAGI, anyway.]]

* HighOctaneNightmareFuel: [[spoiler:Apollo]]'s demise. How about the "silently screaming" faces in the walls of the [[spoiler:not-quite]] Final Dungeon?
** The arrangement of the dungeon theme used in the remake. It begins with shrill, descending notes and breaks into a throbbing baseline that sounds like nothing so much as something big and scary coming to eat your face.
