** Albel is by far the most popular character in the game. When having to choose between who will be your 7th party member, many fans will choose him. Of the other optional characters, Nel is also fairly popular, many enjoy her tough ActionGirl SpyCatsuit credentials.

* BrokenBase: The game's plot twist. Some fans hate it because not only it is ShockingSwerve for this game, but it is also a retroactive one for the entire series. Others have praised for being daring and exploring a subject that is rarely thought about. A third group believes that the plot twist would have been better if it was either handled differently or featured in another game.

** 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 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, 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 putting Convert Damage on her turns her into an MP tank.

*** In Crafting the Boost of Prowess are quite probably the best item in the game. When first created they'll give a 5% boost to strength and defense. Further refinement allows for a total of 30% boost. Eight of these on a weapon, plus two in the accessory equipment slots = 300% boost to your character's attack and defense. On Galaxy level difficulty, with the right armor, this can make Fayt totally immune to damage from most attacks, even from the game's ultimate bonus bosses. In Universe and 4D, the enemies are a bit stronger, so it doesn't work on them, but it would still trivialize everything else.
* 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 either have to be 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.

** 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.
