* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Reportedly, Nomura was considering making ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' a musical, after seeing ''[[Film/LesMiserables2012 Les Miserables]]'' . Rather he was [[TeasingCreator joking]], or serious, we cannot tell.
* [[FanNickname Detractor Nickname]]: "Tetsuckya". Sometimes lengthened to "Tetsuckya Nomorea".
* ScapegoatCreator / MisBlamed: Somewhat acceptable with ''Kingdom Hearts'', after all he ''does'' direct the games and write the story, although he's not the ''sole'' writer for that. With ''Final Fantasy'' though, he mostly only does the character designs and artwork. Nonetheless, it's common to blame anything amiss in ''Final Fantasy'' or ''Kingdom Hearts'' on him. You can see on this very wiki how ''epic'' some of the Scapegoating is.
** He also hasn't helped by having MisBlamed [[SelfDeprecation himself]]. To be fair he ''does'' have a lot of pull in the company, for some pretty obvious reasons, but he's definitely not the defining voice of their products.
