YMMV: The Last Story


  • Canon Sue/Purity Sue: Calista, for quite a lot of people. Which is kinda the point because she's a deconstruction of these tropes.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome - The track is composed by Nobuo Uematsu after all.
    • The music that plays when Calista and Zael escape Zael's knighting ceremony, as well as when Zael fights General Asthar is way epic.
    • The music Heard during the wedding of Zael and Calista. Very heartwarming.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
  • Game Breaker: Summon Circles. Activate, get into relatively straightforward fight, recieve a redonkulus amount of XP and goodies, repeat. Level Grinding has NEVER been this easy!
  • God Damned Bats - Literally, there are damned bats in the haunted mansion area, which if you don't react quick enough, will drain your life to zero in 10 seconds or less. You can't even kill them, which makes it worse.
  • Hell Is That Noise: The final boss' theme. Skip to 3:30 and listen to the song. What is that?
  • It's the Same, so It Sucks: The chief criticism lobbied at the game is that its plot is fairly derivative and doesn't veer too far from standard JRPG conventions.
  • Les Yay: Syrenne and Lisa/Calista in a bathing scene. She also mentions later how she wants a piece of Mirania's silky smooth skin later.
  • Strangled by the Red String: Zael and Calista's relationship. The fact that the Beta Couple of the game is fleshed out waaaay better doesn't help, either.
  • That One Attack: Terracor's curl, the possession attack of the two Shade bosses (which, in addition, can potentially kill any possessed party member so the bosses can recover part of its energy) and Mystic Spider's swallowing attack.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Not so much plot related, but for incomprehensible reasons, Zael doesn't keep the Zanlance, at least not without the risk of the player inducing a Game-Breaking Bug that deletes the main weapon of the character.
  • Woolseyism: As if it needs to be said a few more times.
