* UglyCute: Rena certainly has this opinion of Creepy and Weepy once they shrink down and graft themselves to Ashton's back.

* DisappointingLastLevel: The end game feels very rushed, with the player blowing through the Ten Wise Men in groups at a time.

Added DiffLines:
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Only two of the Ten Wise Men get any notable characterization, and most of them are taken out all at once. Considering they're the BigBadEnsemble of the game, it's rather disappointing that we learn next to nothing about them.

** Ashton is also so supremely popular that many forget that he's an optional character.

** Even the voice acting in the remake isn't perfect. There's just something incredibly hilarious about Claude shouting an overblown, "Dammit!" if he fails at item creation.

* {{Narm}}: Nall briefing the heroes on the Ten Wise Men. We see the Wise Men brutally massacre people in monochrome shots. These scenes would be actually gruesome if it weren't for the deformity of the figures while the Wise Men are realistically proportioned.

No fridge mentions in main or YMMV pages. It's not a trope.

* FridgeHorror: Anybody you choose not to recruit [[spoiler: ''dies''... though, at least, the ones living on Expel get to come back to life.]] ** Note what was said in the spoiler: [[spoiler: Did you already have eight characters before Nede, eg you got Welch? Well consider this: ''Chisato and Noel BOTH die''. only got one? Then guess what, the other one dies. If this was Noel, the last thing you said to him was "who's going to watch over the animals?"]] *** It's actually a lot worse than it seems at first: [[spoiler: ''Every living creature seen in the entire game dies'', and it is only at the very end that ''some'' of those deaths are reversed. This includes your Synard. [[LastOfHisKind One of the last of her kind]], who chose to help the party of her own volition, and [[MonsterIsAMommy who also happened to be a mommy]]. That last point means nothing now that the entire species is extinct.]] *** Meanwhile, [[spoiler:it's a pretty bittersweet affair if they live. They may be alive, but now they're both stuck as outsiders on a planet that isn't their own. There's not a whole lot of work for a journalist like Chisato on Expel and she's lost all of her friends and family, while Noel's lost all of the animals he cared for. The endings with them alone seem to imply that both are still having trouble adjusting to their new surroundings.]] ** Did you pick Rena as your protagonist? Then guess what? [[spoiler:Leon dies no matter what you do! And since it happened well before Expel was destroyed, it's highly unlikely that he's going to come back!]] *** Debatable. [[spoiler: Since Leon's solo ending includes his parents, it's entirely reasonable to assume that they survived until Expel's destruction, or that if they did die earlier, Expel was brought back from a time before it happened.]]

Bonus dungeon enemies are meant to be difficult.
** Easily the worst ones of all are the Live Flayers in the [[BonusDungeon Cave of Trials]]. They are extremely fast, come in large packs, and attack with unparalleled viciousness. There is pretty much nothing as likely to make you want to break your controller as making it almost all the way to the bottom of this long and difficult dungeon (in which you cannot save your game) only to have your level 180 characters [[CurbStompBattle destroyed in seconds]] by these nightmares, losing hours of progress and possibly several dozen levels of experience. The only chance you have is to have maxed-out Parry stats and spam Killer Moves which keep you airborne, and spend as little time on Floor 11 as you can possibly manage.

*** [[spoiler:Even worse that Ronyx believed his own son was dead, and never lived to find out that Claude was alive. If you're playing from Claude's POV, the flashbacks in the Fields detailing their relationship don't help at all.]]
