* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The entire Astarica sequence. [[spoiler: Some unknown voice commands Ark to drink from a goblet, which sends him into a fever dream featuring expies of various allies, culminating in a scene where Overworld Elle acts out-of-character and kills two people before mocking Ark who apparently dies from drinking out of a goblet.]] Nothing within the game hints at any of this, it doesn't affect the plot and never comes up ever again. Ark even comments to this effect afterwards.

Added DiffLines:
* ComicBookTime: The time in Terranigma is much more confusing than Comic Book Time. People and animals are not born but come into existence (when Ark resurrects them or when a town expands). Assuming the game spans hundreds of years, all of the characters are immortal (and not aging [[spoiler: Except Leim]]). Assuming the game spans only a few years, every event (towns developing, [[spoiler: King Henri's invasion of Storkholm]]) takes place incredibly fast and the overworld characters do not have a history prior to their "resurrection".

Added DiffLines:
* ForeShadowing: Crysta is rife with it. One thing that may be missed, and though it never seems suspicious at the time, [[spoiler: the Elder is, unlike everyone else but Ark and Yomi, resistant to being crystallized when Ark opens Pandora's Box, can rearrange Crysta's geography at will, demonstrates a knowledge of the outside world lacking in Crysta's other villagers, and (later) can communicate with Ark through dreams, seems able to track Ark's location in the overworld, possesses at least a rudimentary knowledge of overworld geography, and directs Ark to rescue a specific person, whose location is also known to the Elder.]] Why any of these things should be is left up in the air until TheReveal as to [[spoiler:his]] identity.

* CompleteMonster: King Henry. [[spoiler:He raided a village and killed all of its inhabitants for treasure...except for a young girl he orphaned himself, who he only keeps around to wait for her to spit out the secret of the treasure.]] He's also described as an extremely oppressive tyrant by the townspeople.

* StrawmanPolitical: There's quite some confusion about Louis' political orientation. Most players call him a communist, but he has also been called a conservative. On the other hand, Jean's idea to use taxes to advance production, city infrastructure, technology, and cultural life could also be seen as a more refined communist position. One could argue that Louis simply represents populism in general in opposition to Jean's authentic, informed political decision-making.

** Meilin also annoys quite a few players, and she gets ''even more'' screentime.

Needs More Love is for in-universe examples. Also removing badly-indented Zero Context Examples.
** NarmCharm

* NeedsMoreLove: Especially from its parent company. Square Enix's refusal to publish this game on the Virtual Console is incredibly mystifying.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Most of the soundtrack. Remarkable in that the game's composers, Masanori Hikichi and Miyoko Kobayashi, are obscure even by video game music standards. ** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVAPcIzQFwc Those Who Stand In My Way,]] the boss music, deserves particular mention, as does, of course, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=774VbcSFodU Overcoming Everything,]] the FinalBoss music. ** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_H1PTP_w78 Inside the Door,]] which plays during the Resurrection cutscenes, is also very good. ** The overworld themes, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fy_CZu0wmeA The Departure]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7u4NBQGbJ6A Further Into the Wide World]] are also suitably fitting and epic. ** The music for Crysta, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8A9LGyANP8 A Place to Return to,]] is peaceful, wistful, and just slightly sad -- perfectly fitting for Crysta. ** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PS-p-rB_J3g Prime Blue]] is surprisingly detailed and majestic [[LongSongShortScene despite only playing in magishops.]] ** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvXHXTHY4oA Hometown.]]
