YMMV: Metal Walker
  • Accidental Innuendo: One of the capsules you can buy is called "Get Blown".
  • Demonic Spiders: B. Lance has an erratic bouncing pattern, a capsule that lets them go twice, a fairly high encounter rate, and they're powerful even if you're at a good level for other enemies in the area.
    • In later dungeons, B. Dragons and B. Zeppelins pick up the slack.
  • I Am Not Shazam: The robot that follows you and NPCs around is a Metal Walker. Enemy robots and those controlled by Metal Masters are Metal Busters. There's a difference.
  • Paranoia Fuel: The towns aren't safe from random encounters.
    • Neither are the buildings.
  • Scrappy Mechanic:
    • Outside the final dungeon and in boss battles in that dungeon, the walls electrocute your Walker and cause damage. Fortunately, this also applies to enemies.
    • Before you unlock the Battle Arena, Capsules are randomly placed on the battlefield. They disappear after 2 turns. This includes your only source of healing items.
    • Not being able to save in buildings.
  • Sidetracked by the Gold Saucer: Getting all the Scan Data. You can even scan the final boss.
  • That One Boss:
    • Oddly enough, Badoh. While he gets stomped by enemy Metal Masters, when you face him you'll die if you're not prepared.
    • B. Dragon. He does a fair amount of damage even if you grinded... and his amount of HP is massive. Even if you do 77 damage with each hit, he will likely kill you before you kill him, especially if he or his minions get good capsules.
  • That One Level: Bronze Rocks, as it's a Marathon Level with powerful enemies and an even more powerful boss at the end that can only be accessed through one, long route.
    • Neo City, the final level, is much the same—and its enemies are even harder, with a very long path to get back to the final boss. Even worse is that some areas are dead ends.
  • The Woobie:
    • Emil; while she's rich, to say she and her parents don't get along is putting it lightly. When she was kidnapped they refused to pay her ransom.
    • Your character is too, with his father missing. Emil even says he's lonely like she is.
    • Marina and Dolfi. Their grandfather, the one who planted trees in Ever Green, is dead. And they fight for his memory.
