Added DiffLines:

* IronWoobie: The more you learn about her history, the more obvious it becomes that the Sword Magess was one. When the Blaze of Destruction devastated Filgaia long ago, she was the only one who could stand up to the sheer existential despair the event inflicted on the world. [[spoiler:Not because she had a surpassingly pure and heroic heart, but because she just wanted that badly to ''have a life'' - to spend time with friends and learn things and enjoy new foods and have a family and... everything. She wasn't trying to save the world, she was trying to save herself and the world came in the balance. As she gets to tell Ashley personally at the beginning of disc 2.]]

* CulturalTranslation: The vocals of the opening were replaced with a trumpet solo in the Western release. Luckily, it's ''gloriously'' well done.

Added DiffLines:

* TheScrappy: Marina's angst about being "weak" and her constant flip-flopping between wanting Ashley's attention yet not wanting to be a burden for him can make her ''intensely'' dislikeable.

Added DiffLines:

* FanNickname: Because she [[NoNameGiven lacks any official name]], some refer to Lilka's sister as Riruka. This was Lilka's name in the original Japanese.

* [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation Alternative Character Interpretation]]/ShippingGoggles: How some fans interpret Kanon's unwillingness to [[spoiler: finish off Ashley]].

* NeedsMoreLove: A common plea on WA fansites is for this game to be [[VideoGameRemake remade]] in the vein of the first game's ''Alter Code F''. Hopefully with a translation by XSEED, not [[TheyJustDidntCare Agetec]].



* ThatOnePuzzle: The first puzzle in the final dungeon confounded players for a decent amount of time. Seems not everyone knows how the days of the weeks got their names or figured out that is what the clues are referencing.

** Leprechauns. Not only do they ''prevent you from using your ARMs'', but they're level 44 in an area where you'd be lucky to be level 20. To add insult to injury, they have a Confusion ability that targets all party members at once. Sure hope you spent your FP on Up Hp and Confusion protection or you're in for one heck of a fight.

* FanYay: Brad Evans. Cocytus Ptolomea also has a potent Fan Yay factor.

** In particular, the narrowly-controlled Wild Arms Wiki (at {{Wikia}}) uses Wiki/{{Conservapedia}}-style InsaneTrollLogic and NoTrueScotsman logical fallacies to [[DisproportionateRetribution attack anyone]] who tries to clean up HeteronormativeCrusader language from Brad-related articles. The wiki's administrator brags about banning a [[AcceptableTargets gay editor]] at least once a month, referring to them as {{Troll}}s, and dismisses criticism from groups as people as "[[http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/dogpile dogpiling]]".

* DieForOurShip - Probably the reason why Marina is TheScrappy.
* FanPreferredCouple - It's pretty much a common knowledge in Japan that Lilika deserves Ashley much more than Marina does.
* FanYay - Brad Evans. Cocytus Ptolomea also has a potent Fan Yay factor.
* GameBreaker - Provided you complete a certain sidequest on the second disk, you can locate a hidden vending area called the Black Market. If you can find it, [[spoiler: you can buy as many Heal Berries, Big Berries, and Mini Carrots from it as you can carry.]] It's the only place in the game that allows you to do so.

* InternetBackdraft - We're all open about it on this page, but...don't bring up Brad's sexuality in certain corners of the Internet.
* MagnificentBastard - [[spoiler:Holy jeez Irving I read your ''book!'']]

* StrangledByTheRedString - Marivel and Tony are randomly paired off near the game's end.
* ThatOneBoss - Kanon, especially the latter two times you fight her, where Brad is unavailable and thus you don't really have anyone to soak up damage. Belleclaire, the halfway-point monster of Ptolomea's Diablo Pillar, is also highly capable of stopping games cold with its incredibly powerful attacks.
