* TheScrappy:
** Guillaume, a French, overweight, cheating, dog-kicking, lying paedophile, is most likely an ''intentional'' example of this. (And the player gets to enjoy [[DuelBoss whupping his portly posterior]] several times.)
** And Kenji. Bodybuilding teacher who jogs in a fight and fights with calisthenics... WTF?
** From his stupid name (which would've been okay if [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX it's to]] [[VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends a female]]), to his status as a [[TheMillstone Millstone]] and a [[TagalongKid Tagalong Kid]], to the shit-eating grin in his character portrait, Lulu annoys many fans. Also, with his small size and his habit of picking fights with opponents far more powerful than him, he actually bears an uncanny resemblance to the original Scrappy. [[spoiler: At least his death gave catharsis to players who had also watched [[ScoobyDoo Scooby Doo]] and wished such a thing would happen to the original.]]

* TearJerker: [[spoiler: Sana revealing that she was the Flame Champion's lover and wife, for whom he gave up immortality... an act which it's implied left them with only a ''very'' short time together.]]
** Chris encounters her father after nearly 20 years just in time to [[spoiler: inherit his rune and see him die]].
** [[spoiler: Luc and Sarah's end.]]
* ThatOneBoss: The Water Dragon, which comes after another boss in the same dungeon. It consists of the dragon, plus nine ice crystals. Both the dragon and the crystals can attack each turn and have very powerful magic attacks, and the crystals are in front of the dragon, meaning you can't use standard attacks on it until you deal with at least some of those. Also, the dragon itself has a lot of HP. The more powerful magic attacks help a lot, but you need to save them during the previous boss and the dungeon itself, which doesn't have a straightforward layout.



* ThatOneBoss: The Water Rune Incarnation.
* TearJerker: [[spoiler: Sana revealing that she was the Flame Champion's lover and wife, for whom he gave up immortality... an act which it's implied left them with only a ''very'' short time together.]]
** Chris encounters her father after nearly 20 years just in time to [[spoiler: inherit his rune and see him die]].

* GameBreaker:
** You can level up Chris, Borus, Salome, and Roland to level 99 in Chapter 1. It just involves a ton of time and tediousness and the rewards, while good since there are a few stars that will be level 99 if you recruit them, isn't really worth it in the end.
** The above is of the DiscOneNuke variety of this trope. However, some surprising characters are effectively {{game breaker}}s if you abuse abilities, titles, equipment etc. Quite possibly the best person in terms of pure destructive terror is a completely optional 15 year old girl. Who needs a True Rune anyway?
** Juan and Emily. The battle system allows characters with the right skills to attack several times per turn, and they can move on to other enemies when their enemy falls before their attack string is finished. These two can get more than 10 attacks per round ''each'', with each hit doing roughly 400 damage. Add to that the fact that Juan has a Waking rune attached permanently, which means he's [[TheBerserker doing at least double damage]] when he wakes up. The downside is that this means he's going to be sleeping for at least the first round, but you can equip accessories that nullify sleep to just have them demolish absolutely everything you encounter within one round. Even bosses don't last very long against that.
** Hugo mounted with Fubar is one of the strongest characters of this game. While he can't exactly out damage both Juan and Emily, he does have access to a second unit who can do anything while Hugo does all of the attacking. Simply give whatever consumable items at Fubar while Hugo does all of the work.

* CriticalDissonance: Whoo boy. Critics love this game, evidenced by IGN and [=GameSpot=] giving the game '''''RPG of the Year''''' of 2002, not to mention a spot on IGN's ''Top 25 [=PS2=] Games of All Time'' and ''Top 100 [=PlayStation=] 2 Games''. Yet this game falls into [[BrokenBase divides the fanbase]] because of the Trinity Sight system and [[TheyChangedItSoItSucks most of the change, including the battle system]]
