Added DiffLines:

* GameBreaker:
** Gustave's steel items have insane levels of both physical and magical defense (with the downside of never being able to cast magic when you're equipped with it, but you hardly need to) and can do more damage than anything else; having steel troops in a battle pretty much guarantees victory. (It's also an InUniverse game breaker, as Gustave's use of steel gives him dominance over the other kingdoms.)
** Some characters are very limited when it comes to weapon skills, since if they don't have an high enough Weapon Skill Regeneration (something which can't be enhanced in any way), they will quickly end up unable to perform more moves without [[CastFromHitPoints sacrifying Life Points]] (something which can lead to their death - and by death, we don't mean exhaustion which can be cured with a resurrection spell). Hence, characters with a high Weapon Skill Regeneration's score are the best weapon users, and are essential in a team, since weapon arts will outclass anima arts more often than not (unless you level-grind your animas masteries like crazy, or you use the [[GuideDangIt hidden Hybrid Arts]]), and are quite easy to combo with. Also, Weapon Skill Regeneration is closely tied to one's character age: the younger they are, the better their regeneration is. That's why characters like Gustave and Ginny are that powerful: they can deal damage like crazy and never get tired. And then, you have Diana, with a wooping regeneration score of 5 (the one and only character to possess such an high score), making her virtually the best fighter in the game. Too bad she's only usable in one occasion...
** Equipment adds SP. After battles, if your SP fell below the total sum of SP added by your equipment, then your SP returns to that value. Hybrid Arts are powerful, allow you to also train anima levels, and work off of SP instead of WP. Use of Hybrid Arts in dungeons makes warriors stronger ''and'' lets them save WP for bosses. And since spells grow stronger as current SP decreases, mages can and should use their absolute biggest spell in every random battle.

* EnsembleDarkhorse - She's either killed off or ends up being DemotedIntoSatelliteLoveInterest. She's only in for the 1st generation and did not come back unlike Wil. In the grand scheme of things, she's probably not as important as the protagonistic Knights family member or even Gustave's circles. And yet she's one of the more known non-main characters amongst the fandom and often given the FanPreferredCouple treatment. Her name is Cordelia.

Added DiffLines:

* FanPreferredCouple - Despite official plans of Labelle becoming Wil's official wife, fans are more inclined to pair him with Cordelia since she had more development while Labelle's got cut off. This ends up culminating with how Cordelia is one of ''Saga Frontier 2's'' main representatives (for Wil's saga anyway) in ''[[MassiveMultiplayerCrossover Imperial SaGa]]'' side-by-side with the other Knights' family (Wil, Rich and Ginny) in the main character page.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot - The relationship between Leslie and Gustave. Even though the two of them were childhood friends who were always bickering, it's obvious to everyone that [[TakahashiCouple despite their bickering, both of them actually cared for each other]] [[BelligerentSexualTension and even more]]. In fact it was Leslie that convince Gustave to reconcile with his siblings. It's too bad the game skipped it and never mentions [[RelationshipUpgrade if their relationship went further.]] If it did, it would have made a good love story and [[spoiler:made it more heartbreaking if Leslie learns about Gustave's death.]]

** ''Guard Beast'' becomes ''Cerbère'' (Cerberus). Cerberus is the guardian of hell's gates, and since the spell effects summon the head of a wolf-like beast which can block attacks directed at your character, the translation was rather clever.
