** For whatever reason, Freya is named Frey in the Japanese version, which is the name of her brother, despite obviously being the Norse goddess of love and fertility. Strangely enough, there is a character named Frey, but it is a young girl named Frey who is the sister of Freya. She is named Freya in the Japanese version for some reason.

** Also the famed Nibelung Valesti battle cry of "It shall be engraved upon your soul!" which is closer to "It shall be carved into your body!" in the original Japanese (その身に刻め!).

* AwesomeMusic: Considered to be some of Motoi Sakuraba's best works. [[https://youtu.be/KnNyX2l0sAk?list=PL3410309E74D97664 Epic Poem to Sacred Death]], [[https://youtu.be/vRHNf7Gnh-A?list=PL3410309E74D97664 When a Person Changes]], [[https://youtu.be/tgtYdkLHdUc?list=PL3410309E74D97664 Fighting the shadowy gods]], and [[https://youtu.be/1G64A2sfyts?list=PL3410309E74D97664 Distortions in the void of despair]] are just a few examples.

** Bloodbane in particular is quite egregious. If you can beat him, you should have no problem with Surt, Fenrir, or Loki.

** Bloodbane in particular is quite egregious. If Bloodbane. For the most part things are rather smooth...up until he starts healing himself once you wear his HP down. His Blessed Gravity attack can beat him, you should have no problem with Surt, Fenrir, or Loki.also wreak havoc on your party members.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: Putting it lightly, Valkyrie Anatomia: The Origin has split the English-speaking fandom into two camps: one has completely disowned the game simply on the basis of it being for mobile devices and decrying that the series is now dead forever, while the second camp is cautiously optimistic and happy to see a return to the series after 7 years since the last entry.


Added DiffLines:

* InternetBackdraft: Almost any positive news about Valkyrie Anatomia has been met with criticism.


Added DiffLines:

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: English-speaking fans were ''not'' happy to find out that Valkyrie Anatomia: The Origin would be a mobile game, to say the least.

* MagnumOpus: Is widely considered to be Tri-Ace's best game, showcasing the strengths of the studio (fantastic battle system, solid visual presentation, great music) as well as having a memorable, relatively well-written storyline, especially compared to their other games which are criticized for having awful stories and characters.

* PortingDisaster: Well, not quite a ''disaster'', but the original US release for the PlayStation had some notable improvements over the original Japanese version, generally streamlining the menu and organization of your characters and items. The PSP rerelease, however, was based on the Japanese version, and thus doesn't have the improvements from the US PlayStation original.

***By that time, you should have Infernas and the Unicorn Horn, the first unbreakable wand that allows great magic. Use a fire spell with it, get the Great Magic, and you get crispy Mandragoras.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The one-hit Purify Weird Soul attacks, like Aelia's, fall into this. While they look cool -- Aelia turns into a dragon and lets out a [[Franchise/FinalFantasy Bahamut-style]] blast -- the real power is in multi-hit attacks, which benefit more from party buffs and, more importantly, build up the heat gauge for more finishers. Also, the combo number determines the percentage bonus of subsequent attacks, so a PWS that hits for one strike is just not as good as one that hits for 20.

They are made to be used last, especially the most powerful of all, Ether Strike. It's hinted at its Heat gauge increase: a measly 10%.
