* ScrappyLevel: The Tri-Pillar, full stop. A dungeon that [[InvoluntaryGroupSplit splits your party]] and has the characters go up three identical, entirely uninteresting towers. The best part? The RandomEncounter table is just ripped wholesale from the previous dungeon, and thus ''spectacularly'' unsuited to a solo run. And a good chunk of those monsters are highly resistant to magic, making Cecilia's tower a LuckBasedMission. It's really telling that it's the one dungeon ACF ''entirely removed'', handing you the place's McGuffin in a simple scene and turning the boss into a BonusBoss of a late game, different area.

** Van Burace sounds more badass and American than Vambrace. C'mon, "Jack Vambrace"? What kind of name is ''that'' anyways, when everybody else has either English (Cecilia Lynne Adlehyde) or American (Rudy Roughnight) sounding names? Pretty sure Van Burace was intentional, as the literal "Vambrace" translation would not have fit very well. Nobody names their kid "Vambrace". Van Burace, though, is an AwesomeMcCoolName.

* CompleteMonster: [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Alhazad]] is a MadScientist who had several inhabitants of a town abducted so he could test his parasite that [[BodyHorror horrifically mutates any living thing into a mindless monster]], then sends the mutated citizens back to their town to slaughter everyone except a young, blind girl (who was protected by [[NobleDemon Zed]]). He then threatened to release this parasite, which he calls the "Demon Seed", on a village almost entirely inhabited by [[WouldHurtAChild orphaned children]] unless the party hands over a MacGuffin. He also manages to infect both a young Wanderer and a puppy with the Demon Seed, forcing the party to kill them both. Finally, [[spoiler:it turns out that he's the one who turned Lady Harkan into a Demon. Not because he was ordered to, but because he had a [[VillainousCrush fondness]] for her]]. Even the [[OmnicidalManiac omnicidal]] [[EldritchAbomination Mother]] was less vile then Alhazad in that at least she did what she did because [[BecauseDestinySaysSo she believed it was her destined role]]. Alhazad simply enjoyed experimenting on people as [[LackOfEmpathy "toys"]]. He collaborates in resurrecting Mother and is an active supporter of her plan to [[KillAllHumans destroy the human race.]]

* CompleteMonster: Alhazad arranged several inhabitants of a town to be abducted so he could test his parasite that [[BodyHorror horrifically mutates any living thing into a mindless monster]] then sends the mutated citizens back to their town so they could slaughter everyone except a young, blind girl (who only survived because [[PetTheDog Zed protected her and took her under his wing]]. He then threatened to let the same parasite, which he now affectionately calls the "Demon Seed", loose on a village almost entirely inhabited by ''orphaned children'' unless the party hands over a MacGuffin. He also manages to infect both a young Wanderer and a puppy with the Demon Seed, forcing the party to kill them both. Finally, [[spoiler:it turns out that he's the one who turned Lady Harkan into a Demon. Not because he was ordered to, but because he had a [[{{Squick}} fondness]] for her]]. Even the resident [[OmnicidalManiac omnicidal]] EldritchAbomination was less vile then Alhazad in that at least she did what she did because [[BecauseDestinySaysSo she believed destroying stuff was her destined role in the cosmos]]. Alhazad did all those atrocities [[ForTheEvulz for the lulz]].

* GuideDangIt: A puzzle in the Sacred Shrine requires you to throw Hanpan at somebody in order to get them to move so you can talk to another person. This is necessary to progress the plot, and the only hint is the person saying offhand that they're afraid of rats. It [[MakesSenseInContext Makes Sense Out Of Context]], but when you're actually playing the game it just sounds like [[WelcomeToCorneria generic NPC banter]], not a puzzle hint.

* TheWoobie: You have no soul if you don't want to just give Mariel a hug when she looks out of her door at the party when they first meet her in ACF.
** Same goes for her portrait when she becomes a temporary party member.

** In the original PSX version, there's a bug that lets you very easily duplicate items. All you have to do is have your first two characters use the same expendable item (Heal Berries are easiest), then have the third character switch the location of that item with something you have one of. At the end of the turn, the game deducts two from the number of the item in that slot... which, since there was only one, takes it from 1, to 0, back around to [[UsefulNotes/PowersOfTwoMinusOne 255]]. Use it on [[RareCandy apples]] and you can effortlessly max everyone's stats, use it on Crest Graphs and you can get all the spells easily, use it on Secret Signs and Jack will only ever have to use 1 MP for any of his skills, use it on Goat Dolls and abuse the ability to re-equip your characters in battle and ''nothing will ever be able to kill you''...
