- Awesome Music:
- Funny Moments: During the talk with King Kiemarl about the Sea Altar, he asks Adol and Dogi to look after his daughter Aisha, and to scold her if she puts herself in danger. Dogi gets the fun of the order, causing Aisha to drop her royalty act and yell back at him before stopping for a moment, realized what she just said in front of her father, and then backpedals hilariously by returning to her royalty act and claiming that she shan't put herself in danger. She swears it!
King Kiemarl: "...Nice try, Aisha."
- Nightmare Fuel: In the final dungeon, the party will fight a miniboss mob made of monstrous versions of past Dragon Warriors. That means whenever the player gets a game over, Adol is also Reforged into a Minion.
- Shocking Swerve: Ys SEVEN pulls this off in spades once you reveal the real main villain of the piece... that is to say, Tia. All of a sudden, a lot of people you thought were enemies are now victims, several people you counted as friends are now out to kill you, and even the characters can't believe what just happened.
- Tear Jerker: The ending. While Tia is fading away after her defeat, Maya shows up and speaks for the first time, telling Tia not to disappear. This is followed by Tia's final farewell to her.
