This game provides examples of:

- Dark Is Not Evil: At first the Dark Elves appear to be evil, but then they're not.
- Demonic Spiders: Lots, but the Knolls are the worst.
- Determinator: Lucio. He looks like to have jumped out of a shonen anime.

- Doomed Hometown: After a raid of the Order of Darkness, Carnia is destroyed. But they get better.
- Drop the Hammer: The Celestial Hammer ability of the Priest class.
- Dual Wielding: The standard option for Candace and Judeka.
- Eldritch Abomination: The God of Darkness. He can be even uglier than Cthulluth. Some darkness troops are also this, and it is implied that they were once human.
- Eleventh Hour Superpower: Right before the final battle, we discover that there is two Laciel's sword/bow/staff and the second is Ameli.
- Elite Mooks: Everytime you see one of a different color, this is going to be tougher.
- Expy: Candace is red-haired Yuffie, complete with Rebellious Princess status, though more obvious. Lydia seems to be too familiar with Rei Ayanami.
- Fish People: The Carp Hermit, arguably the most annoying character in the entore franchise, seems to appear once a game and asking the player to run a bunch of simple yet irritatingly long errands before he is finally willing to help. He's literally a person with a goldfish for a head and a three second memory. He nearly drove both Candace and Lydia insane.
- Friend to All Living Things: Ameli sees goodness even in orcs. And this act of kindness changes their history.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Kundin, Charmer Shuiga and Lydia.
- Hidden Elf Village: Selendrya.
- Humans Are Bastards: That's what Judeka thinks initially. But he is so impressed with the incredible amount of concern that Lucio has for Lydia and how far he goes to save her that he decides to change his mind.
- Journey to the Center of the Mind: After using a weird type of magic to cure Ameli from a petrification spell, Lydia falls into a coma and then Lucio goes on a sidequest to recover an artifact to cure her that allows this journey. It turns out that is the memories of Laciel.
- Lovable Rogue: Candace.
- MacGuffin: The Laciel artifacts.
- Macguffin Delivery Service: The plan of the Darkness Order is to let Lucio and his party to find the Laciel's artifacts and steal them. It has to have some Deus ex Machina to avoid have them killed.
- Mad Scientist: Crazy Heig. Whatever he is doing with the things Lucio delivers to him nobody knows for sure.
- Mysterious Waif: Lydia and Elina.
- More Dakka: It exists with arrows.
- Nice Hat: Lots of them, but Elina's eyed hat takes the cake.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: You defeated the God of Darkness? Congratulations! However, there is now excess of light in the world, creating mutant animals and driving the Spirit Kings insane.
- Noble Demon: Judeka, which helps with his Heel-Face Turn.
- Our Dwarves Are All the Same: Yes, they are.
- Path of Inspiration: The Darkness Order. The name itself should be an indication.
- Rebellious Princess: Candace.
- Refusal of the Call: At first, Lucio actually questions the arbitrariness of being the chosen one, to what the Wind Spirit King answers that he can't fight fate.
- Shrinking Violet: Lydia.
- Small Name, Big Ego: Juan.
- So Long, and Thanks for All the Gear: Candace does exactly this in Lucio's first encounter with her.
- Twenty Bear Asses: Pray to God you love these type of quests, because you'll be seeing them a lot.
- The Man Behind the Man: High Priest Verat to the Darkness Order, and then the God of Darkness.
- And also the undertaker in Crene Cemetery.
- Tsundere: Candace is a type B.
- Ungrateful Bastard: Eijenhar.He thinks that he's doing you a favor letting you leaving alive. But then you rightfully kicks his ass.
- Kilgern is worse. Ameli pleads Kuntu for sparing his life even though he was about to kill them a second ago. Kuntu complies. Kilgern uses his last strength to turn Ameli to stone and kills himself in the process. So he basically sacrifices himself to try and kill the girl who saved his life. This also leads to his superior's orders ending up in the good guys' hands, so not only was it a dick move, it was also very counterproductive.
- Victory Guided Amnesia: Happens after you defeat the God of Darkness. But you'll get better.
- You Killed My Sister: Ada's primary motivation against the Order of Darkness and against Cardis.
- "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue: After you defeated the God of Darkness, it's shown and then it's subverted.
