* RelationshipWritingFumble: The developers seemed to intend for KOS-MOS and Shion's relationship to appear platonic, but they typically appear '''MUCH''' closer than that.

* RelationshipWritingFumble: The developers seemed to intend for KOS-MOS and Shion's relationship to appear platonic, but they typically appear '''MUCH''' closer than that. For what it's worth, the writers seem to flipflop between portraying their relationship as [[LesYay romantic]] or a mother-daughter one.

* GeniusBonus: There's a few of them littered throughout the trilogy, the most obvious being that Sellers is a not-so-subtle CaptainErsatz of DrStrangelove, who was played by Peter '''Sellers'''.

* {{Woolseyism}}: How some view the removal of the blood in Episode I. The bone-crunching noises (combined with Albedo's head turning at a natural angle) made many players even ''more'' unnerved.

* ContestedSequel: ''Episode II'' to ''Episode I''. Also, VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}} in general, in comparison to VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}.

** ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}''
in general, in comparison to VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}.''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}''.
** ''Xenosaga Episode II'' due to many questionable changes in the battle system, the ArtShift and the replacement of some voice actors. See also TheyChangedItNowItSucks.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Hinted at by WordOfGod. BigBad [[spoiler:Wilhelm]]'s plot involves [[spoiler:resetting time over and over again to avoid the universe's eventual destruction.]] The characters argue that [[spoiler:endlessly repeating the same thing simply for the sake of existence is meaningless, and put a stop to it.]] At this point [[spoiler:Wilhelm]] may seem like a WellIntentionedExtremist at best and pure evil at worst (he's directly or indirectly responsible for everything that happens in the series, including each character's [[{{BreakTheCutie}} individual traumas]]), but the post-game database suggests that [[spoiler:the party's rejection of his plan was actually what he wanted, and that by continually resetting the universe he was actually "training" the collective consciousness of humanity to move on and find a way to avoid the universe's destruction, putting him in a much more positive light.]]
* AwesomeMusic: [[AwesomeMusic/{{Xenosaga}} Has its own page.]] Unsurprisingly, consider Creator/YasunoriMitsuda and Music/YukiKajiura were the main composers at different moments.

* BaseBreaker: Shion. For her detractors, she's obnoxious, self-centered, selfish and overall unlikable. For her defenders, she's a compelling female protagonist (in a genre where those are ''extremely'' rare to boot) who manages to stay strong despite suffering ''massively'' from DeusAngstMachina and has an engaging CharacterDevelopment, which makes her very sympathetic.
