* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: A lot of the things that are hyped as revolutionary aren't particularly noteworthy nowadays, with a lot of them being impractical or needlessly complicated. Even by the time the 3DS version was released, little of it would be seen as anything more than a gimmick.

** Meat Bullet, a rare instance of a mutual HPToOne attack. If the main character is hit by this attack, you are [[CriticalExistenceFailure one hit away]] from an instant [[WeCannotGoOnWithoutYou game over]]. Especially bad cases are Tuo Fei, who is so fast that you can die before doing anything, and the Romero fight that can have three to five Rolwoys, all capable of using this move.

** Shemyaza. He likes flinging way too many AoE spells (Mabufula, Mazionga, and Maragion) your way, especially Megidola. His Delta Pulpulae inflicts confusion on all party members, and things will get worse if your demons happen to drop out. If you lose to him, you'll need to watch a three-minute long cutscene + dialogue.

* ThatOneAttack: Eat Whole, a favorite of [[VillainousGlutton gluttonous demons]] such as Ammuts and Peallaidhs. This is the strongest "Skill" element move in the game, with a whopping 60 base power, and it hits the entire party for damage. Even worse, there is no armor in the game that resists Skill damage, and many of the demons that have it are immune to electricity, largely shutting down the best Nemissa build.

** King Frost's Self-destruct attack, which he uses once he runs out of HP and can easily bring you from full health to zero. If the protagonist doesn't have enough HP to survive it, or is too slow to guard before King Frost uses it, you're screwed.

* DemonicSpiders: ''Anything'' with spells that can inflict instant kill attacks, mainly due to the main character lacking innate resistance against them and his death meaning that the game is over. And in a lot of cases, if you run into an enemy group where one enemy carries Hama, they all do. ''And'', unlike later entries in the series, Hama and Mudo spells will always hit ''your entire party''.

* AnticlimaxBoss: Lucifuge in the first BonusDungeon. You'll be expecting a tough fight, given that he's the second-to-last boss in the dungeon, is one of the only opponents in the game who can act twice in one turn, and can use both Tetrakarn and Makarakarn. Unfortunately for him, he only has five moves, those being the two -karns, his basic attack, an inaccurate paralysis-causing move, and Demon Birth Cry, a weak Almighty move. He has no elemental attacks, and thus no way of hitting weaknesses, and no way of canceling buffs and de-buffs. If you buff your Endurance and Magic to the max and unload with Almighty, there's literally nothing he can do to you.

The most trouble you're likely to have with him is if the paralysis move connects on your healer.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Kadokura]] is the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive CEO of technology giant [=AlgonSoft=]]] and one of the most influential men in Japan. Though [[VillainWithGoodPublicity beloved by the public]] for his useful products and philanthropy, this masquerade hides a twisted man devoted to [[TakeOverTheWorld world domination]]. Prior to the start of the story, Kadokura had discovered Manitou, [[TopGod supreme god of the Native Americans]], and decided to use his power for his own ends. Kadokura founds Amami City, a state-of-the art seaside metropolis, and Paradigm X, a totally-virtual city that can be accessed by Amami's computers, as an excuse to get millions of people into one place to [[YourSoulIsMine sacrifice their souls to Manitou]]; the chips that run the virtual city are infused with demonic power, sending the souls of the players via cyberspace to feed the sleeping god. By the end of the game, most of the city's population has had their souls removed. When he meets the heroes for the first time, he falsely blames the entire EvilPlan on his demon partners Azazel and Satanael, then after the heroes kill them he thanks them for saving him the trouble of doing it himself. When the heroes finally corner him, he swallows a number of souls himself to [[OneWingedAngel power himself up]]. Willing to exploit everyone from ordinary citizens to a creator god, Kadokura has no place in his heart for anything other than [[ItsAllAboutMe his own rise to the top]].
