** Adray is considered by many to be an unnecessary addition to the ''Director's Cut''/overseas versions. This is due to him being shoehorned into the plot and is forced into your party, which prevents you from recruiting all of the characters that you want. His subpar and overall awkward combat performance also earns him a lot of hate. The fact that he joins you instead of the actually-important fan favorite Clair only makes things worse.

** Roger is disliked for being a BrattyHalfPint and being completely useless in battles. His only saving grace is once you're forced to choose who you want to permanently join your final party, he's usually the first and easiest choice to leave out.

Added DiffLines:

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The original Japanese release was an ObviousBeta (because it was coded with features that weren't backwards compatible) that, because of negative reception, necessitated a director's cut. The English release, presumably because it is the director's cut, was better received.

* ThatOneSidequest: Recruiting all of the inventors thanks to massive amounts of GuideDangit. Some of them will join you for money, but others require certain items that have to be either crafted, which may require specific other inventors, or found throughout the game in obscure out of the way places. In particular, the Bent Mystical Sword needed to recruit Boyd, the game's best Smith, requires you to participate in the bunny races in Gemity, which are basically totally random.

** Maria full stop. Don't let her initial impression fool you - she does start with a crappy weapon so it gives the illusion that she has crappy damage output. Change it immediately to another weapon (Blaze Gun or Pulse Needle should be available at that point) and watch how she makes succeeding boss battles trivial. Her starting skills alone are quite deadly - Aiming Device is an accurate, strong attack that deals good MP damage to boot (very useful for that one boss fight in the dungeon you go to after recruiting her), and Scatter Beam is utterly devastating at close range. Scatter Beam combos will carry you towards post game until you can get her all-powerful Energy Burst attack. Also she gains a huge amount of MP, so put Convert Damage in her to turn her into an MP tank.

* UncannyValley: The character models are all very high quality and look great compared to other games on the same system, but their movements are just so distinctly ''off'' at all times that everything generally looks weird.

* UnexpectedCharacter: In the ''Director's Cut''/overseas versions, you'd expect Clair, the important NPC who assists the party throughout the game, to be an obvious choice to be a playable character. Instead, you get her crazy dad, who wasn't even mentioned at all in the original version.

* {{Narm}}: The English voice acting is of... mixed quality, to say the least. While the acting for the main party is generally solid, side characters like Farleen are ear-gratingly bad. Combined with the strange movements with the character models, watching the game becomes a very surreal experience.

** Nel's subordinate Farleen, but only in the English version, and only because her voice actor's performance is near-universally panned. Listening to her speak would have you swear that the air of Elicoor II was full of helium.

* ThatOneBoss: [[spoiler: Super Blair]]. If you've never used the 'No Guard' support skill, she'll gladly show you [[GameBreaker just how broken]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvG6mt0wynQ it can be.]] As seen, she can attack and pursue you relentlessly, even while being hit by all three of your party members at once. Made worse, since she counts as one of the game's [[SNKBoss five Super Bosses.]] Plus, [[LightEmUp "Eddy of Light"]] has faster start-up and covers a much wider area, than [[spoiler: Pseudo Blair]]'s version of it, and it'll kill anyone [[InstantDeathRadius caught in the center of it.]] Expect to revive your teammates often.
