* In ''Heroes of Lagaard'', whenever you send off one of your guild members to do something for the duchy, they automatically make your team wait at the bar until they finish. But there's an in-game clock, and ''it never advances when they're working''. Even if the dialogue implies they've been gone for hours... If they leave at, say, 6PM on Emperor 7, they come back at 6PM on Emperor 7. Why didn't they just have that member 'leave' for a set amount of in-game time? You could still go off and do other things with the rest of your team, and there wouldn't be this sense that time stands still whenever one of your members goes off to work solo.
* Why do people act as if it's a big spoiler and PlotTwist that ''Etrian Odyssey'' series takes place in a post-apocalyptic world? It's established in the original game's manual and intro trailer. The ''twist'' is that the world before the apocalypse was a technological world, not another magical world.
** Actually, the twist is that the pre-apocalypse world was [[spoiler:'''our''' world]].
*** True, but I wasn't aware of that at the time, plus that's an even heftier spoiler.
* Why does the pink haired Landsknecht always have one of his eyes closed? Is he straining himself? [[HandicappedBadass Or does he only have one eye?]]
** Maybe they snapped his picture at the wrong moment? Really, it's up to the player what they want to make of that. Same with the busty Arbalist and Buccaneer -- either of them could be winking, or missing an eye...
* So just what the hell is up with the Hollows? Are they just surprisingly well organized monsters? Former Vessels that were somehow corrupted by an unknown force? Or something else?
** This gets explained in the sixth strata. They are [[spoiler: the third of three races created by the Yggdrasil survivors to help reestablish society. The Hollows, having only one communal mind were the only of the three races who remembered their origins, hence why they attempted to bring the Medium back to Yggdrasil.]]
