* AlternateCharacterInterpretation:
** If you take all the dialogue trees as being in-character for Byuu, it becomes apparent that he's a two-faced manipulative JerkAss who toys with the emotions of those around him for fun. He has no objection to torturing suspects, and happily hires assassins to take out his "friends" just to amuse himself. He's a sociopathic recluse who cares for nothing except his dragons, and maybe Frederica. He also [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking steals mushrooms!]]
** Princess Yoyo. Is she simply a naive, inexperienced, yet nice woman who just happened to get tangled in an unfortunate LoveDodecahedron or is it something else? The narrative seems to lean toward the latter. However, portions of the fanbase often picture her a selfish, two-timing slut, among other things.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The game has a somewhat unique soundtrack among SNES RPG's, being kind of jazzy as per the stylings of Noriko Matsueda. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPPugQHTQ5Q battle theme will stay with you for a while.]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Frederica, if her ending ''second'' in the VideoGame Saimoe is any indication. Might explain the below point.
* FanPreferredCouple: The Japanese fans ship Byuu and Frederica despite there being little evidence, and Byuu and Yoyo, who broke up in-game.
* GameBreaker: You can feed the dragons items to power them up and give them new forms. One of Salamander's forms is called Phoenix, and it is literally invulnerable. Just give it the command Go, and it will destroy every enemy on the map for you while you sit on the sidelines. (Technically, since dragons in Bahamut Lagoon are linked to a unit of soldiers, it's still possible for Salamander's final form to be beaten indirectly if his soldiers are all killed... but as a practical matter, you can just hide them in the corner of the map while your invincible dragon kills everything for you. And the AI isn't smart enough to take advantage of this.)
* TheScrappy:
** Princess Yoyo (see AlternateCharacterInterpretation above), [[spoiler:with many of the feelings of dislike stemming from what some have perceived as one of the earliest cases of [[{{Netorare}} NTR]] in video games (i.e. the resolution of her romantic subplot, especially when the player has responded positively in the flashback sequence with Byuu and Yoyo).]]
** Palpaleos occasional gets this as well, mostly due to association with the above.
* UglyCute: They were aiming for a Moogle-like RidiculouslyCuteCritter (might have even ''been'' moogles at one stage in development), but the Minidevils were more this, judging by their artwork.
* UnfortunateCharacterDesign: Yoyo's first battle sprite. It makes her look like she has a giant chin (which is, in fact, her neck).
