A RealTimeStrategy sequel to the [[RunningGag thigh-bitingly popular]] {{RPG}} ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', set in [[IvaliceAlliance Ivalice]]. Rare in that it is a direct sequel to the game and stars the same characters. Vaan and Penelo take a leading role this time, and explore the FloatingContinent of Lemurés.

Tropes present in this game (see also the main ''Final Fantasy XII'' page) include:
----
* AllSwordsAreTheSame: Averted. Vaan's swords are shorter than Basch's, and the two can not use each other's swords.
* AscendedExtra: Kytes, Filo, and Tomaj were originally bit part {{NPC}}s in VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII, while Revenant Wings promotes them to playable and/or supporting characters.
** OutOfFocus: Conversely, Ashe and Basch are nowhere to be seen [[spoiler: until near the end, where they unexpectedly join your party]].
** Ba'Gamnan was also a relatively minor villain in the first game. In this game, he plays a bigger role, and even unexpectedly becomes a GuestStarPartyMember.
* ApatheticCitizens: The Aegyl on board the Galbana when the Sky Saloon is opened. The Sky Pirates who joined fall under this, too. [[spoiler: They get better after Chapter 8-2. They don't try to help, though. It turns out [[EmotionEater their souls have been feed off of.]] Several Aegyl go unexpectly revenge driven when emotions they never felt suddenly overwhelms them.]]
* ArtificialStupidity: Don't expect your allies to show initiative, move forward with everyone else, or use their abilities with any intelligence. Don't expect SquishyWizard[=/=]WhiteMage Penelo to take the initiative on healing when you're actually in combat or avoid charging into melee. Do expect her to just stand there staring into space when you try to withdraw her from melee, rather than running as quickly as possible, then watching the boss fight become unwinnable because your healer died.
* AxCrazy: A lot of the Aegyl become this after [[spoiler:Velis releases their anima.]]
* BareYourMidriff: Penelo
* BlackMagic: [[spoiler: Auracite drains the anima of whoever uses it whenever used. The aegyl are an example of what happens when this is used too much.]]
* BigBad: The Judge of Wings [[spoiler: is shunted out of this role by [[GodIsEvil Feolthanos]], becoming TheDragon instead.]]
* BonusBoss: Quite a few.
* BonusDungeon: Midlight's Deep. Doubles as a reference to ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics''.
* CheerfulChild: Filo.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Espers usually change color depending on if they are fighting with you or are enemies.
* CrutchCharacter: Ba'Gamnan has a few more levels and better equipment when he's forced to join the party. He leaves it as soon as he can, of course.
* DeadAllAlong: [[spoiler:Velis]].
* DisposableWoman: [[spoiler:[[UnfortunateImplications The Feol Viera are an entire race of disposable women]].]]
* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler: Mydia]]
* EmptyShell: The [[spoiler:aegyl, thanks to Feolthanos' auracite.]]
* ForcedLevelGrinding: Becomes essential fairly quickly; luckily, there's plenty of ways to level grind your way to the recommended level.
* GlobalAirship: Obtained by the end of the first chapter; the Galbana can at first only travel on [[FloatingContinent Lemurés]], but can later travel to Ivalice and TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon.
* GodIsEvil: [[spoiler:Feolthanos]].
* GoldfishPoopGang: Rinok, Bwagi and Gijuk, later joined by Ba'Gamnan.
* GreenRocks: Auracite.
* GraphicsInducedSuperDeformed: Style recycled from VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance and VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2.
* HeroicResolve: This is how Vaan (and presumably, the rest of the party) [[spoiler: prevent the auracite from draining their anima.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Llyud]].
* ImmortalityImmorality: [[spoiler:Feolthanos]] has kept himself alive for centuries by [[spoiler:draining the aegyl's souls.]]
* InfinityPlusOneSword: Anastasia, obtained when [[spoiler:Velis transforms into it]]. It can be powered up by completing [[BonusDungeon Midlight's Deep]] and defeating [[BonusBoss Yiazmat]], gaining ten in each stat every time you do so. One player actually managed to give the sword [[GameBreaker 1000 in each stat]]. [[FridgeLogic By the time you do something like that, though, why would you even need the thing?]]
* InterspeciesRomance: [[spoiler:The Feol Viera are the result of an aegyl/viera cross.]]
** Also, the [[UglyGuyHotWife Seeq sky pirate and his viera wife.]]
** Hinted quite strongly that Balthier and Fran are (or have been) an item. When Tomaj tries to woo Fran, she tells him Balthier's methods of wooing her were quite different.
* ItemCrafting: This is Cu Sith's entire role. It's essential to obtain the best equipment for everyone who isn't Vaan.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Vaan, Kytes and Filo do this when the Galbana crashes just outside Rabanastre.
* KidSidekick: Filo and Kytes.
* KidWithTheLeash: Anyone who uses Yarhi/Espers becomes this, as roaming Yarhi/Espers wander around, attacking randomly.
** Also Tomaj when he hooks Ba'Gamnan up to a device that allows him to be manipulated with a remote control.
* LethalLavaLand: Roda Volcano/[[spoiler:The Feol Warren.]]
* LifeEnergy: Anima.
* LimitBreak: The Quickenings, gained by doing optional side missions. You gain them mostly by having you and your Espers take damage, so throw Vaan into the middle of a cluster of enemies, and [[HilarityEnsues watch him decimate them all with Pyroclasm]].
* [[LastOfHisKind Last Of Her Kind:]] [[spoiler:Mydia. Due to her own actions, at that.]]
* LoveMakesYouEvil: [[spoiler:Mydia]]
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: Llyud, who is regarded amoung the Aegyl as 'a curiosity'.
* NoHeroDiscount: Tomaj creates the Sky Saloon on the [[GlobalAirship Galbana]] around a third of the way through the game; it is justified, however - the weapons/material shops are the only way he has to make money, which he uses to buy more weapons and materials.
** And even then, he's taking a loss. Chatting with one of the [=NPCs=] in the Sky Saloon reveals this, and that evidently the stuff he's selling/[[ItemCrafting you're making]] would make the people at Draklor Labratory jealous.
* OneWingedAngel: It wouldn't be a Final Fantasy game without the final boss pulling one of these.
* PrettyInMink: The Shiva summon has a fur boa.
* ProudWarriorRace: The Aegyl, when the Sky Pirates invade Lemurés and [[spoiler: when they discover they can travel to Ivalice after their anima is released.]]
* RegeneratingMana: Spell uses restore over time.
* RequiredPartyMember: You are forced to use certain characters in the missions in which they obtain their [[LimitBreak Quickenings]]. Also sometimes done for story purposes, occasionally.
* RespawningEnemies: Happens frequently. In missions such as the fight against Zalera, the enemies spawn faster then they can be killed with a normal level party. They could be seen as useful for level grinding, but the amount of experience each battle gives is fixed and can't be increased by killing enemies, instad making maps that are quick to complete better for that purpose.
* SideQuest: There are as many optional missions form Tomaj's board as there are in-game missions. They tend to be quite a bit harder, but give much better rewards and the optional Espers. Doing them is required to keep up with the escalating levels of the enemies.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Unlike the original game, Penelo's outfit is now one, followed with Fran and Ashe as usual. Averted with Filo.
* SummonMagic: A fundamental part of the game; all of your minions have to be summoned, and you can forge pacts with the high-level Espers by completing optional missions.
* TheStoic: Aegyl in general.
* TacticalRockPaperScissors: Melee beats Range, Range beats Flyer, Flyer beats Melee.
* TeamChef / LethalChef: Penelo. Yes, somehow she's both to start with, though she improves.
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Frequently happens in that most levels; the computer can summon more Yarhi/Espers then you can produce without summon gates.
* TheDragAlong: Penelo and Tomaj at first, but they get used to it.
* TheManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler: Feolthanos was behind the Judge of Wings.]]
* TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon: If a [[spoiler: gigantic temple floating in outer space]] doesn't give you that impression, few other things will. Bonus points for being the first view of [[spoiler: space]] in an Ivalice series game and having a kickass view to the [[spoiler: planet below]].
* TookALevelInBadass: Vaan, who [[spoiler: even gets a god blade forged from Odin's soul and goes a few rounds one on one with Ivalice's (arguably) most powerful being. He loses, but still, you got to give him points for trying.]]
* VaporWear: Penelo, whose new outfit does not seem to involve underwear at all.
* VictoriousChildhoodFriend: It finally shows Vaan and Penelo kissing each other... in the secret ending.
* WhereItAllBegan: You can return to Ivalice in the latter half of the game - you can go to the Cache of Glabados, too.
* WingedHumanoid: The Aegyl.
