* The Hokuten (Northern Sky) control lands mainly on the left side of the map, and Nanten (Southern Sky) control lands on the right. But remember that old maps had east at the top, and that's where north and south went.
* Cloud's birthday in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' is in August, which should make him a Leo, but in ''Tactics'' his zodiac sign is Aquarius. Who does have the right birthday to be an Aquarius? ''Aeris.''
* Speaking of Cloud, his ability to wear [[GenderRestrictedGear female-exclusive equipment]] like ribbons is probably a ShoutOut to the infamous [[DraggedIntoDrag crossdressing sidequest]] from [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII his home game]]. However, ribbons ''aren't'' gender-restricted in that game (even though some equipment, like the Minerva Guard, is), so it could also be that Cloud doesn't see anything wrong with a man wearing a ribbon [[ValuesDissonance because]] ''[[ValuesDissonance everyone]]'' [[ValuesDissonance could wear them back home]].
