* LoveItOrHateIt: You'll either hate this game or love it. However, it'll take at least one playthrough, mild knowledge of gnosticism, and a gander at Perfect Works to even come close to ''understanding'' it.

** The Holy Pendant doubles the duration of in-battle effects on the equipped character. Possibly due to a [[GoodBadBugs programming oversight]], this bonus also extends to Gear combat, which means that the equipped character can spend up to ''six turns'' in [[LimitBreak Hyper Mode]]. [[LostForever Miss your chance]] to buy one? Never fear! You get one for free when Billy joins you.

** Equipping Elly with three Power Magics and using Aerods (or ether) is less of a nuke than an Ether Doubler, but they aren't LostForever and are the optimal alternative. Most bosses can be taken down after four or five hits with Aerods on Power Magics, at least [[spoiler: while Elly's still in the party]].

* FreudWasRight: Vanderkaum really likes his cannon, and Bart really loves his Bart Missiles and the cannon on Ft. Jasper. [[spoiler: Elhaym was originally created by seven-year-old Abel's desire for a "mother's will".]] The two become lovers, for over [[spoiler: 10,000 years.]] All of this was completely intentional, as the game was partially based on Freud's works.

** Grahf, truly a MagnificentBastard. He wasn't as manipulative as Krelian and so, unlike Krelian, he wasn't [[TheChessmaster in complete control of everything that happens to the very end]] but his [[{{Badass}} kick ass moments]] makes up for that.

* {{Mondegreen}}: From "Knight of Fire", a lot of people hear something like [[spoiler: sex in the gas chamber]] being sung in the background.

** The scene where the characters are drinking tea... and the teacups float up to their mouths. They messed up ''teacups''.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: The Dark Id did a LetsPlay of this game and came to the opinion that Citan was [[http://lparchive.org/Xenogears-%28by-The-Dark-Id%29/Citan/ Xenogears' Greatest ASSHOLE]] (though with some tongue firmly in cheek).

* ShowDontTell: Likely one of the biggest offenders against the concept in video game history. Disc 2 in particular, about 80% of which consists of the characters sitting in a black void with a screen of static imagery behind them, narrating about all the things they've been doing.
