    General main party tropes
Tropes that apply to all members of the main party.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Any Monster party members will be this.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Several of the Human and Esper character designs available in the DS remake. Also applies to the male Mutant in the original game, or at least his in-game sprite.
  • Childhood Friends: A batch of four such friends. The default party name in the DS remake confirms it.
    • Interspecies Friendship: More likely than not, unless you're going out of your way to make a completely homogeneous party.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: Several of the Human and Esper character designs available in the DS remake.
  • Hello, [Insert Name Here]
  • Interspecies Adoption: The species of the main party members' parents don't change to match whatever race you chose for them to be, making this trope very possible. In fact, it's more likely than not, unless you're specifically coordinating your party's race distribution to avoid it.
    • Happily Adopted: Their relationships with their parents seem no worse off for the difference in species.
  • Robot Buddy: You're free to make any or all of the protagonist's companions this, if you wish.
  • True Companions: They stick together through thick and thin, from the very beginning of their adventure to the very end.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Several of the Human and Esper character designs available in the DS remake.

    Main Character
  • Ambiguous Gender: If you decide to make the protagonist a Monster.
  • Hello, [Insert Name Here]
  • The Hero: Naturally.
  • Hulk Speak: In the DS remake, if you pick to start as a Minidragonnote  or a Familiarnote .
  • Interspecies Adoption: If you pick any race other than "Human" for the main character.
    • Happily Adopted: The protagonist's love for their parents is just as strong regardless of what race you pick for them.
    • Raised by Humans: True in a literal sense no matter what, but this trope is in full effect if you pick to make the main character a Mutant/Esper, Monster, or Robot.

    Central Characters
ちちおや Chichioya

  • The Ace: Regarded by most as the #1 member of the Guardians.
  • Captain Ersatz: Of Indiana Jones.
  • Disappeared Dad: He vanishes after the first scene of the story, and never returns for years.
  • Good Morning, Crono: How he wakes you up at the beginning.
  • Nice Hat: In the Game Boy version. In the DS remake he's not wearing his hat, and is known more as the "man with the whip".
  • Rebel Leader: Leads the Guardians, who call him "the Colonel".
  • Secret Other Family: Appears this way when he shows up seeming to be Lin's father. Turns out he only cares for Lin and her mother while Mask is away.
  • Whip It Good: His trademark weapon set. Especially notable in the remake.
アポロン Aporon
めがみ Megami
FFL2 "Isis"

  • Almighty Janitor: Literally. The Goddess's entire occupation is to maintain the proper function of the world, the Central Temple and the Sky Pillars.
  • Big Good
  • Gambit Roulette: In between her needed times of Central Temple maintenance, she intentionally divides herself into smaller pieces and scatters them among the worlds as individually powerful Relics, to promote the raising of heroes who will be powerful enough to collect and assemble the Relics, and then assist her in carrying out repairs.
  • Genki Girl: She's quite chipper and good-humored, much to the party's surprise.
  • Powers That Be
  • Winged Humanoid

ビーナス Bīnasu
オリビア Oribia
FFL2 "Flora"

  • Arranged Marriage: To Julius. Called off when Venus dies.
  • Beauty is Bad: Olivia decides that freedom from the controlling Venus means marring her own beauty. She slices her own face with a knife and then requests Venus to banish her from her megalopolis. This only pisses Venus off.
ユリウス Yuriusu
FFL2 "Nils"

  • Arranged Marriage: To Olivia. Called off when Venus dies.
  • Dark is Not Evil
  • Dogged Nice Guy: At first Julius seems to be a less sympathetic Prince Charming Wannabe, until it's clear that he never had any more of a choice in the matter than Olivia.
  • Easily Forgiven: Julius isn't really one of the good guys or one of the bad guys. He seems rather ambivalent to Venus's control of his life, mostly excited about getting to marry someone like Olivia. When Venus is finally defeated and Julius is no longer betrothed to Olivia, Julius apologizes for his arrogance and remains friends with Olivia and Antony. Olivia points out that Julius didn't actually do anything bad — he didn't actually have a choice in the overall situation, so she saw no fault that needed to be forgiven.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Okay so he's not evil, but this is the trope that allows Imp/Devil monsters to remain inside the city. invoked
  • Hopeless Suitor: Julius actually genuinely likes Olivia, but has no real chance of winning her heart from Antony.
  • Horned Humanoid: A demon who's beautiful enough to live in Venus's megalopolis.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Julius is said to be popular with the girls, though he himself doesn't seem to be fully aware of this.
