YMMV: Blaze Union
  • Anti-Climax Boss: Soltier: In A route, mostly because that route gives you the three characters best at handling him.
    • Not-So-Harmless Villain: ...And he's a major pain in the ass to fight in route C, where Gulcasa, Nessiah, and Baldus aren't at your disposal and thus you have to deal with all those status ailments on your own.
  • Anvilicious: Remember, kids, revenge is bad, and demons are Always Chaotic Evil.
  • Canon Sue: Baretreenu.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Byff.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Siskier is terrified of heights and spends the first battlefield in Chapter 2 trying not to panic when traversing the wooden-bridge mountain path to Flarewerk, to the great amusement of all. In one route, she dies jumping from a high place.
  • Game Breaker: The Vise card, which helps in battles even if it isn't used optimally, but basically exists to exploit Garlot's most broken battle effect (Flash Attacks do double to triple the usual damage). Gulcasa is one; Emilia also is, but you don't want to overuse her.
  • Ho Yay: Garlot and Nessiah.
    • Foe Yay: Garlot and Leon.
      • Soltier and Garlot.
  • Iron Woobie: Garlot/Gulcasa.
  • Memetic Badass: Emilia, due to her new True Final Boss status in route B.
  • Moe: Nearly every party member.
    • Eimi alone will cute your face right off. Luciana, Aegina, Eater, and Nessiah are also ridiculously adorable, and there's a reason why people have taken to miswriting Garlot's Catch Phrase (燃え上がってみせるぜ!) with the wrong kanji for "moe".
    • Leaked screenshots seem to suggest that instead of just giving her the prophecy and going on his merry way, Nessiah actually spends some time traveling with Eimi. Prepare for death by cute.
  • Tear Jerker: See here; note that spoilers are unmarked.
  • That One Boss: Ordene and Emilia.
    • Given how badly Nessiah has been nerfed and the fact that he doesn't even use Reincarnation the first time you have to fight him, why does he still rate as one of the most difficult bosses of the game? Superior tactics, incessant status effects (when most of your party has low GEN and can't avoid them!), Item Break, and blanketing the screen in mooks.
    • That One Attack: Jihad, Genocide, Reincarnation.
  • The Woobie: A large percentage of the cast can apply for this position. Take your pick, folks.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Poor Garlot. A number of sites still claim that he's a woman, and a lot of fans still wouldn't believe it even after hearing his quite masculine voice.
