* BreatherBoss: The first boss of the second disk, Mappi and his two thieves, is a cakewalk, especially [[ThatOneBoss compared to the fight with Doel that preceded it]]. Mappi only attacks one character at a time with a weak physical attack and his thieves can be dispatched in a few hits.

* WhatAnIdiot: Lenus posing as Princess Emille. She doesn't even ''attempt'' to copy the latter's behavior at all, being rude and outright antagonistic to everyone around her, including Princess Lisa and the King. In addition, although everyone can't help but notice Emille is acting strangely, they just brush it off. In fact, it's said that the King was actually ''pleased'' that his daughter was finally acting more active about her royal status.
* TheWoobie: Shana. Her hometown is razed to the ground just to capture her, she gets broken out of prison but she has these strange powers she has no understanding of, the guy she likes keeps constantly rejecting and ignoring her feelings, she gets poisoned and is given a Dragoon Spirit so she can survive which she then loses shortly after the guy she likes returns her feelings and she can't travel with him anymore, she ends up kidnapped and finds out that her powers are designed to bring the end of the world as we know it and may have to be killed to stop it from happening. Thankfully, she doesn't have to be and gets a happy ending.

* DieForOurShip: Shana has the bad luck of being a BaseBreakingCharacter by herself and of being in the way of the [[FanPreferredCouple Dart/Rose pairing]]. Needless to say, some Dart/Rose shippers aren't very kind towards her.

** Shana and Miranda. While the two undoubtedly have the best dragon attack in the game, can keep the party alive through ''anything'', and can waste enemies once they get the Psyche Bomb X, they do pitiful damage because they lack additions. Their only gimmick is that they can be almost permanently in dragoon form; as their attacks lack additions, their SP is delivered in one bulk package, and it's a higher amount than most additions in the game making it very easy to accumulate levels. However, [[GameBreaker magic is overpowered in this game]] and they have the best magic attack stats, beating 2nd place Meru by nearly 50%. Most fans would rather use Meru because she's faster and takes way less work to get going, whereas Shana and Miranda only pay off late in the game, and Shana lags behind ''horribly'' in the early game.

** Miranda's backstory would normally garner her sympathy: She was beaten, and eventually abandoned, by her mother. Her father was a drunk who also beat her. She took to war to ease her pain until she was adopted by Queen Theresa. In the game, Rose is outright dismissive of her despite the fact that Miranda served alongside the party without any problems. However, none of these details are learned until after Miranda has punched her subordinates for petty reasons, showing both immaturity and poor leadership.

* StrangledByTheRedString: The Dart/Shana romance can some across as this, especially in the first half of the game, due to lack of character development between them and the issue of their supposed romance being ''really'' heavy-headed at times.

That Dart spends the first disc and a half remarking [[LikeBrotherAndSister that he sees Shana as a little sister]] only to state at the end of the second disc that he loves her too doesn't help.



* UnderusedGameMechanic: One of the main points of criticism the game got was just how underused the titled transformation is, often being a major case of AwesomeButImpractical outside of a ''very'' few situations. More often than not the characters can often deal more damage with their base physical attacks or even basic magic items than with their dragon additions/spells. Early game, the characters will often want to grind additions more than transforming into a Dragoon and transforming into a Dragoon against late game bosses is almost suicidal thanks to several having some counter to the Dragoon form.[[note]]The [[WeaponOfXSlaying Dragon Buster]] sword or [[PowerNullifier Dragon Block Staff]][[/note]] In the end, this only leaves a few mid-game bosses that are worth using the Dragoon form on and, even then, it's used more so for healing/when you run out of item magic more often than not. The only real exception is Meru who, thanks to having several damaging spells that also heal the party, is often the one who will end up transforming into a Dragoon for the sake of healing the party and getting some damage in at the same time.

** The Grand Jewel can also count. It can mess with your character's levels, changing them by 5 at a time, and it loves to lower your level multiple times in a row before actually increasing them. And it's even worse if you've gotten into the habit of getting as much of your transformation gauge filled as possible before using the Special command (all characters take on their Dragoon forms); doing that will make him use the Dragon Block Staff, which makes your Dragoon forms pathetically weak.

* ThatOneLevel: Zenebatos requires you change the laws in order to access the Signet Sphere. Or keep the guardians from arresting you when they attack you. Or accomplish much of anything. First you have to acquire legislation, then get it made into a law, then have it distributed throughout the city. Each location is incredibly far from the other two so you have to run across the city three separate times for each law you want to change. And if you haven't changed that law yet, you have to do it while dodging the guardians trying to arrest you and send you back to the starting point.
