* CulturalCrossReference:
** The French translation, full of [[ArtisticLicense gratuitous English that does not match the original English]], has an item called a [[Music/NineInchNails 9 inch nail]]... described as "the claw of an [[IndustrialMetal industrial monster]]." Guess the French translator must've been a fan then.
*** Same translation also has an NPC remarking that Galbadia Garden's ice hockey team watches the ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' movies while they train. Then when you fight them on disc 2 they're not called "Slapper" but are instead named "Jason."
** In the English version, Zell is obsessed with obtaining hot dogs from Balamb Garden's cafeteria. In the original Japanese script, it was 'pan' i.e. sweet bread. It is considered an exotic treat in Japan (introduced when they began trading with Portugal in the 16th century) and comes in flavors such as apple, curry, and melon. It was changed to hot dogs in the English version simply because the pan shown in the ending FMV vaguely resembles hot dog buns.
* {{Fanon}}:
** EpilepticTrees persist that Ultimecia was an alias used by [[FutureMeScaresMe Rinoa in the future]]. Wibbly wobbly, timey wimey.
** Squall's surname of "Leonhart" is commonly supposed to have come from [[NomDeMom his mother]], whose maiden name has never been stated anywhere in the game or its supplementary materials.
* NoExportForYou: Unless you have the PC version or import a Japanese [=PocketStation=], there is no way to play the [=ChocoboWorld=] game in international releases.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Selphie had two additional Limit Breaks in her 'Slot' command: Percentage, a gravity-based attack - that cuts all enemies by 15/16 of their current HP. And Catastrophe - a spell even more powerful than Apocalypse. These can be accessed with a gameshark - and are seen with the Fire spell animation.
** Rinoa's name was initially mistranslated as 'Lenore' in a lot of magazines - and her name is 'Linoa' in the French version of the game.
** Adel was meant to be the final boss of Disc 3 - following the tradition of finishing every Disc with a sorceress battle.
