* ValuesDissonance: Quite possibly why the game is far more successful in Japan than everywhere else. Japanese gaming culture is more communal and more open to players sharing strategies at arcades, which was vital if players wanted to complete the original game, especially before the age of publically-available, fast, and affordable internet coupled with sites like [=StrategyWiki=] and Website/GameFAQs. In the West, the concept of arcades as social environments is generally lost on players, so players weren't as willing to collaborate to figure out how to find the next treaure. This is made worse today with [[StopHavingFunGuy the idea that using guides and asking other players for help makes you an idiot who shouldn't be playing the game]].

* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: In second season, Fatima is seen trying to use her "staff" without her usual adventurer outfit. It looked like a very bad firecracker. At the end of the episode she changed her clothes and got back her magic powers. Is Charisma boost that important for sorceress?
* HeyItsThatVoice: Gilgamesh (Gil) is voiced by Creator/TomokazuSeki, who also voiced another [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Gilgamesh]]. Both are based on the legendary Sumerian King, the latter far more than the former.

* BrokenBase: Is the game's sheer GuideDangIt nature a clever way to get players to collaborate and help each other out, or is it a steaming pile of FakeDifficulty and deserving of being a [[AmericansHateTingle commercial flop outside of Japan]]?
