* AngstWhatAngst: Remember all those Flunkies he had following him around? Ever wonder what happened to them? According to WordOfGod, ''they were slaughtered to a man over the course of Chapter 1.'' And Milanor doesn't bat an eyelid.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: On the subject of Nessiah: Now that his relationship with Gulcasa (which has been [[HideYourGays very vague and subtextual up until now]]) has finally been made canon in ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'', some people believe it to help humanize him (as his [[ConflictingLoyalty distressed indecision]] and [[DrivenToSuicide eventual suicide]] in [=BF18=] imply that he might have fully reciprocated Gulcasa's feelings), while others think that his [[TreacherousAdvisor taking advantage of their closeness]] to manipulate Bronquia makes him seem even more callous.
* BlindIdiotTranslation[=/=]{{Woolseyism}}: {{Atlus}}' localization of the game strays from the original script in a number of places. The translators owned up to changing one of Durant's lines in the tutorials because they felt it was an OutOfCharacterMoment; some lines, such as Yggdra's "Solving swords with problems?" at the end of Chapter 8, do not exist in the Japanese script at all; the entirety of Gulcasa's characterization was altered, his diction made more formalized and haughty than in Japanese and a lot of his PetTheDog moments (such as his marked reluctance to fight Elena in Chapter 5) removed. A number of the translations, such as Gulcasa's title ("Entei", or "Blazing Emperor") and the name of the war between the Royal Army and Asgard ("Shinkaisensou") were changed ("Emperor of Carnage") or just flat-out wrong ("Ragnarok"), creating a number of [[DubInducedPlotHole plot holes]]. Compare both language versions of any battlefield's dialogue and they probably won't match up too well. In all fairness to the English localization team, the schedule {{Atlus}} set up for the GBA localization left them very little time and the interface required a lot of heavy editing, as a lot of images required editing to replace the Japanese text with English, so they were most likely very rushed with production. However, most of the mistakes remain in the PSP version. Some people are very unhappy with this. Other fans could care less.
* CrossDressingVoices: Milanor is a comical example of this, having a female seiyuu despite being seventeen-years-old.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: The beginning of Battlefield 42.
** When Eudy says goodbye to Baldus in Battlefield 39.
* DieForOurShip: Every now and then the ShipToShipCombat between Milanor/Yggdra fans and Milanor/Kylier ones gets ugly. With Milanor/Elena also being fairly popular, Kylier seems to get this treatment the most often.
* [[GameBreaker Game Breakers]]: Gulcasa and Nessiah, who by themselves can slaughter the player's full Union and do it with ease. Luckily, Yggdra also becomes one after her AwesomeMomentOfCrowning.
** Milanor's statistics[[note]]he reaches Game Breaking power before you even get halfway into the game. His attack stat is absurdly high and it only takes two points in Tech and Gen to insure that he'll max them out at level 20 and if you got enough points for his gen, he'll be at 6/6/6/6 faster than any other character (since Milanor is base 20, the other characters are base 18 with the exception of Yggdra who is also base 20 and Roswell and Cruz who are base 17). If you have been playing the game correctly, you would have tried to make sure to divide the MVP points so that Milanor DOES NOT turn into a gamebreaker early because if he does, you'll be wasting points on a single character while everyone else is stuck levelling up. Oftentimes, by the time you actually start using the strong items on Milanor, the stat boosts do not even matter anymore because he has no more stats left to boost.[[/note]] ensure that if he's leveled up diligently enough, he can become one as well.
** And you can't forget Fanelia. Just... ''Fanelia.''
* EverythingIsBetterWithExplosions
* FoeYay: Yggdra and Gulcasa, in spades. Complete with InnocentInnuendo commentary from Emilia towards the end of Chapter 4.
* InferredHolocaust: [[spoiler:The best (A) ending, though this is only apparent if you've played the other games and realize [[BigBad exactly who]] Nessiah was trying to kill with his atrocities.]]
* IronWoobie: Gulcasa.
* LauncherOfAThousandShips: Roswell, thanks mostly to the UnwantedHarem.
* JerkassWoobie: Leon
* LesYay: Zilva and Elena.
** Don't forget Pamela's obsession with Nietzsche...
* MagnificentBastard: [[spoiler:Nessiah has orchestrated many wars just to fuel the Gran Centurio with enough power through bloodshed so that he can free himself and take revenge on the gods.]]
* MemeticMutation: From one particular what-were-they-thinking change to the English script, Japan gives us あいいえええええぇぇぇ.
** COME NEAR ME, AND I'LL KILL YOU!
--->''"The phrase 'come near me and I'll kill you' is a little misleading. You might think that as long as you don't come near me you won't get killed, but even if you stay away, I'll still kill you!"''\\
--Creator/MaiNakahara, ad-libbing in character about 寄らば、斬ります! in [[FandomNod the radio segment of the same name]]
** "How about attacking at night?"
** Japan seems to be of the opinion that the English translation of the game is laughable. (Most English-speaking fans agree.) Their favorite line to make fun of is the way that every female scream is changed from your standard "AAAAAAAAA" to "Aiiieeeeee!", most famously in the scene where Yggdra is fired upon by Eudy. Just about every fan site in existence has made some crack at it, and on Pixiv, there are several pictures of Yggdra that are either titled or captioned "あいいいいえええええぇぇぇ".
** Also, TOUCH ME AND I'LL CUT YOU (or, in the English version, "Come near me and I shall strike you down"), a fan favorite of Yggdra's lines from early in the game. StingEntertainment is well aware that it's a fan favorite, and it's used much more often in YggdraUnison; the online radio show hosted by Yggdra and Kylier's voice actresses [[FandomNod even had a segment named after the line]].
* MoeMoe: Yggdra, Nietzsche, Pamela, Emilia, Nessiah, and #367. Just to name a few.
* PlayerPunch: [[spoiler:Battlefield 33 exists solely for the purpose of rubbing the player's nose in the events of Battlefield 10.]] And then there's [[spoiler:[[ShootTheDog Battlefield 46]].]]
* TheScrappy: The Royal Army, for good reason.
* ScrappyMechanic: Cutscenes "eating" cards by removing your turn after you choose a card, forcing you to choose a new card.
* TalkingToHimself: There are a number of examples, as the cast of characters is far larger than the cast of voice actors. One of the more amusing examples would be Kaneko Hidehiko, who voices both Roswell and Leon.
* TierInducedScrappy: There is no way to make Russel a better combatant than Yggdra. You generally don't want to use more than one character with the same weapon, unless they're staff users. So most people don't use him at all.
** Cruz. While he does have a bonus during the day and is immune to being countered, he suffers from the same thing Russel does: Elena is a better bow user than Cruz could ever be. There's even a great card that's exclusively for use by her, leaving even less reason to use Cruz.
* ThatOneBoss: Goddamn Gulcasa...
* ThatOneSidequest: Mjollnir. Also, the Glittering Ash and Good Luck Charm.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: Nessiah and the generic Necromancer units were widely (and now infamously) mistaken for women on one of the boards. This led to much amusement and StupidSexyFlanders, although none of the in-game characters have trouble telling that the characters in question are male.
* WordOfGod: Sting actually published a ''book'' (Dept. Heaven World Guidance) to clear up things that were left vague in ''Yggdra Union'', ''VideoGame/RivieraThePromisedLand'', and ''VideoGame/KnightsInTheNightmare'' (such as Nessiah's backstory).
