** Miranda. To half the fandom, she's TheScrappy; to the other half, she's an emotionally compelling BrokenBird.

** Miranda. To half the fandom, she's TheScrappy; TheScrappy because she's OutOfFocus and benches Shana; to the other half, she's an emotionally compelling BrokenBird.

* ReplacementScrappy: Miranda is usually seen as this, for replacing Shana. It's not because they liked the character she replaces better (Albert also is a replacement for Lavitz after all, plus Shana is a DamselScrappy to many), but more that Miranda joins in Disc 3, and OutOfFocus when compared to the rest of the cast. She's also very abrasive, although she does get called out on this.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: 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. However, this isn't revealed until Disc 4, and Miranda is fairly abrasive to most of the party. While Rose is nasty to her first, she's unnecessarily nasty to the others.

* CriticalDissonance: While critics had mixed feelings about the game, the gamers' opinion was, and still is, significantly greater.

Compared to Melbu that's not so bad in comparison...though I do believe that he likely crossed the MEH.
* ClicheStorm: Notably though, plenty of tropes are subverted and deconstructed instead of played straight.

** Fruegel as well. He doesn't quite reach Frahma's levels, but he executes both prisoners and his subordinates with barely-contained glee, and he destroyed [[DoomedHometown Seles]] [[ForTheEvulz just because kidnapping one girl seemed too trivial a task.]]

Editing a lot of these poorly written tropes.
** Proper usage of Item Magic and Dragoon magic alongside magic improving items can blow through the bosses in the game by easily reaching 6000 or 9999 damage. There is a video on YouTube showing Meru and sometime Shana/Miranda and Dart set to deal massive magical damage turning ''every'' boss battles in the game into a total joke as a result.

** Meru is an absolute beast. Fairly universally considered to be the strongest playable character for her mix of high speed (meaning she gets turns out the wazoo), insane magic attack and healing only outdone by Shana/Miranda's, on top of the fact that her final addition, due to a high combat multiplier, allows her to out-damage Kongol!

** Thanks to MagikarpPower, Meru is an absolute beast. Fairly universally considered to be the strongest playable character for can become this if you use her mix of extensively, since she has a high speed (meaning she gets turns out the wazoo), insane magic and high damage multipliers to overcome her lack of attack and power. While Miranda still beats her for healing only outdone by Shana/Miranda's, on top of and for magic damage, Meru's physical damage can be done quite frequently. * HoYay: A fair amount between Dart, Lavitz, and Albert, even though the fact that her final addition, due to latter is definitely head over heels for a high combat multiplier, allows her to out-damage Kongol!woman.

* ReplacementScrappy: Miranda is usually seen as this, for replacing Shana. It's not simply because they liked the character she replaces better (Albert also is a replacement for Lavitz after all, plus Shana is a DamselScrappy to many), but more that Miranda joins in Disc 3, and doesn't get enough screentime when the plot ''really'' starts to get in motion, giving people the impression she was tacked on in mid-development. Not only that, her personality is, save for a few scenes, rather abrasive, although to be fair she ''does'' get called out on this.

** Kongol. Slow as all get out, has the magic defense of a wet paper bag, and only has three additions, with the first two giving ridiculously small amounts of SP, making it an absolute ''chore'' to get his Dragoon levels up. Additionally, his final addition has a pitiful 300% modifier, the weakest of any final addition in the game and holding back his ungodly physical might. Compare Meru's 600%, which gives her, with the second lowest attack stat in the game, the ability to outhit Kongol, in addition to her being more than twice as fast as he is. ** Shana and Miranda. While the two undoubtedly have the best dragon attack in the game and can keep the party alive through ''anything'', 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. In a game where healing can be outclassed easily, they're just not worth the effort for some. However, [[GameBreaker magic is overpowered in this game]] and they have the best magic attack stats, beating 2nd place Meru by nearly 50%.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Miranda. She was abandoned as a child by her mother and had only a drunk for a father until she was adopted and raised by Queen Theresa, but any sympathy you feel for her is quickly lost because up until her backstory is revealed, she is mostly a {{jerkass}} to everyone except the Queen and doesn't really stop being one throughout the rest of the game.
