Go To




to:

* {{Tsundere}}: Essentially. After joining the party, he makes excuses and blunders away or insults people every time someone accuses him of doing something nice, such as when he went to go comfort Noel after [[spoiler: the supposed attempt by Ultimecia to put him under MindControl.]]
-->'''Raijin''': We wanted to see how you were doing, y'know?
-->'''Seifer''': No! We knew he'd be down in the dumps, so we came all this way to check on him.
-->'''Squall''': [[InternalMonologue (How is that different?)]]


Added DiffLines:

* ScrewDestiny: She hints that she is trying to avert her BadFuture, which she believes is a result of BecauseDestinySaysSo, but Squall and the others don't buy it, and Celes says her words sounded empty.

Added DiffLines:

* UsedToBeMoreSocial: Upon meeting him again, a few of his friends note that he used to be a lot more outgoing and cheerful, and are confused about why he seems so withdrawn. Noel says it is due to his time as TheDrifter with only the dismebodied voice for company. It's also because he's just not used to traveling around with LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, since he comes from a BadFuture where he is the SoleSurvivor of his kind, or that he is used to traveling with only Serah. He eventually warms up to everyone with the help of Locke and Noctis.


* MoreThanMindControl: Ultimecia controls Seifer once again with magic and by playing into his "romantic dream" of being a knight.

to:

* MoreThanMindControl: Ultimecia controls Seifer once again with magic and by playing into his "romantic dream" of being a knight. The party later suspects her of trying to do this to [[spoiler: Noel]].
* ThenLetMeBeEvil: Her reaction toward the party in Act 2, Chapter 5, after they rebuff her warnings about Kefka up in the FloatingContinent. [[spoiler: She genuinely did try to help Locke's Dark Manikin find the Terra and Celes Dark Manikins, even though she told him to save himself. She is also sympathetic to Noel's plight of being the last survivor of a BadFuture]].




to:

* TheVoice: [[spoiler: She speaks to Noel this way as he treks through the world in solitude, abandoned by Materia. Despite his protests otherwise, she does not appear to him because she says he would fear her as a monster, like others have, and also does not tell him her identity.]]



* BigBrotherMentor: Tries to become this to Noel, but Noel tells him to knock it off.



* BackToBackBadasses: With Locke and Noctis in Act 2, Chapter 5's cover art.



* SwissArmyWeapon: Noel's Unique Weapons are a [[{{BFS}} Greatsword]] and a [[CoolSword Stabbing Sword]] that can combine together into a [[BladeOnAStick Glaive]].


Added DiffLines:

* ThePromise: He remembers his to AlwaysSaveTheGirl, and together with Locke notes how they both failed theirs (Noel with Yeul, and Locke with Rachel). They vow to never let it happen again.
* SwissArmyWeapon: Noel's Unique Weapons are a [[{{BFS}} Greatsword]] and a [[CoolSword Stabbing Sword]] that can combine together into a [[BladeOnAStick Glaive]].
* SympathyForTheDevil: He is the first person to show sympathy for [[spoiler: Ultimecia, the owner of TheVoice he heard. He finds it hard to believe the party when they tell him how evil she is, because she helped him and kept him company when he was all alone. Not only that, but they are both victims of a BadFuture BecauseDestinySaidSo, and both are able to recognize that similarity]].


Added DiffLines:

* BackToBackBadasses: With Locke and Noel in Act 2, Chapter 5's cover art.


Added DiffLines:

* PickyEater: Noel, Prishe, and Steiner pick on Noctis for this because of his dislike of vegetables.

Added DiffLines:

* ArmorPiercingAttack: Meteor Javelin ignores enemy defense.


Added DiffLines:

* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: All of Noel's abilities become enhanced when attacking a broken target. In addition, with the Extend passive equipped, Tempest Strike is capable of [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown breaking, unbreaking, and then re-breaking an enemy]].

Added DiffLines:

Recruited in Act 2, Chapter 5. When first summoned by Materia, Noel is released far away from anyone else, causing him to wander for an indeterminate amount of time by himself through a desert. With only a mysterious disembodied voice to keep him company, he treks on until finding an empty city, whereupon he finally reunites with Serah and the others. He joins the party, happy to not be alone anymore, though he still seeks the identity of his mysterious, unseen companion...
::
Noel is an offensive physical damage unit, capable of buffing himself and adding some party utility. His first ability, Tempest Strike, is a 2 hit BRV+HP attack that does ice and wind damage. His second skill, Gale Fang, is a 4 hit BRV+HP attack that grants him the "Last Hunter" buff, which raises his Max BRV, Attack, and Defense. His EX ability, Meteor Javelin, is a 3 hit melee BRV+HP attack that repeats four times and ignores defense, inflicting splash damage on other enemies.


Added DiffLines:

* TheAloner: Spends "days, months, or even years" lost alone in the world of ''Opera Omnia'' before he finds the party, which is unusual because usually Materia deposits new warriors near their allies. He only had the mysterious disembodied voice for company. When speaking to the others about this, Celes can relate to the feeling of being the last person alive, since she thought she was for a time in the World of Ruin.
* BirdsOfAFeather: Strikes up a quick friendship with Noctis upon learning that they both enjoy hunting and gathering recipes for food.
* ElementalPowers: Tempest Strike deals [[AnIcePerson ice]] and [[BlowYouAway wind]] damage.


Added DiffLines:

* LastOfHisKind: As the last human alive in his time, Eiko relates to him because she grew up alone as the last survivor of the Summoner tribe.


Added DiffLines:

* BirdsOfAFeather: Strikes up a quick friendship with Noel when they both bring up the fact that they enjoy hunting and gathering recipes for food, though Noct admits that he doesn't do the cooking.


Added DiffLines:

* PrincelyYoungMan: Setzer assumes he is one of these due to his regal bearing and calls him "Prince" as an affectionate nickname, prompting Noct to react with surprise since he never actually told the party of his royal heritage. Setzer apologizes after being corrected.


* SwissArmyWeapon: Noel's Unique Weapons are a [[{{BFS}} Greatsword]] and a [[CoolSword Stabbing Sword]] that can combine together into a [[BladeOneAStick Glaive]].

Added DiffLines:

->''The last remaining Farseer from seven hundred years after Lightning's time, he is responsible for leading Serah on her journey through time. He has a deep connection with Caius. He understands the value of life more than anyone and fosters an unshakable will to bring hope to the future.''

Added DiffLines:

* PowerCrystal: Summons Carbuncles through invocations through Moonstone or Obsidian.
* ScrewThisImOutOfHere: Should Alphinaud be broken in battle, Carbuncle will immediately de-summon and leave his side, requiring him to summon it again.
* SimplifiedSpellcasting: Summon Moonstone calls Carbuncle to his side, not only does this action immediately allow Alphinaud to take another action, but it also doesn't take up a turn in the counter (although it will still use a Summon/Assist turn). His EX summoning Obsidian Carbuncle works the same way coupled with a powerful attack.


Yda is a physical attacker, poisoning enemies with Touch of Death and damaging them with Snap Punch.

to:

Yda is a physical attacker, poisoning enemies with Touch of Death and damaging them with Snap Punch.Punch, the latter of which gives her one stack of Greased Lightning which can empower her next Snap Punch. Her EX ability, Tornado Kick, is a 4 hit BRV+HP attack followed by another BRV+HP attack that allows for 180% Max BRV overflow. With one stack of Greased Lightning, her EX becomes Tornado Kick+, which allows for 200% BRV overflow.

[[quoteright:327:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ealdnarche0e8efea.png]]


Added DiffLines:

->''An Elezen affiliated with the Scions of the Seventh Dawn and Alisaie's older twin brother. His genius earned him admission to the Sharlayan Studium at the tender age of eleven. Playing a central role in the Scions, he travels Eorzea in hopes of fulfilling his grandfather Louisoux's dying wish.''


Added DiffLines:


Recruited in his event, "Walk This Way." When first found wandering in the woods, the party recognizes that he must be Alisaie's brother and takes him to her, whereupon she explains the situation to him - particularly, that the other Scions are overly formal to them because they don't know the twins as well yet. Afterward, he joins the party and is happy to give them his wisdom and experience.
::
Alphinaud is a support mage, summoning his Moonstone Carbuncle to his side to augment his attacks. His first skill, Summon Moonstone, is unique in that it is active for 6 turns in the beginning of battle and only needs to be refreshed after it wears off, and does not spend a turn to use. On each of Alphinaud's turns, Moonstone provides BRV to the party and reduces damage taken, while also changing his standard BRV attack to Sic and Shining Moonstone, respectively. His second skill is Energy Drain, a 2 hit BRV+HP attack that restores HP to the party.
----
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: When displaying his skills to the party in a cutscene, he summons Obsidian Carbuncle, but in battle he can only do that with his EX ability which isn't available until his Lost Chapter.
* ImprobableAge: Lampshaded by Krile, who calls him a grown-up despite the fact that they're close to the same age. Despite being only sixteen, he says he will bring his wisdom and experience to help the party - of which he has plenty.
* LifeDrain: Energy Drain damages enemies and restores HP to the party.
* MaamShock: Like Alisaie, he receives this when Y'shtola and Yda call him "Master" Alphinaud, which he hasn't heard them call him in quite some time.
* SpellBook: He wields grimoires in battle, which are considered Unique weapons that only he can equip.
* SummonMagic: Alphinaud summons Moonstone Carbuncle to fight at his side in battle to improve his offensive power and buff the party. Later, he gets his EX ability which allows him to summon Obsidian Carbuncle in the Japanese version of the game.

Added DiffLines:

* CommonalityConnection: She hits it off with the Type-0 characters, who are also cadets at a military academy, and quickly suggests that they hold a school festival-type event.


Added DiffLines:

* NonAnswer: When Lightning finally asks what the word "booyaka" actually ''means'', Selphie just tells her that she can use it as much she wants.


Added DiffLines:

* TheComicallySerious: When the word "booyaka" starts being thrown around, Lightning assumes it's some kind of secret code and becomes very concerned with figuring out what it means.


* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Prompto's chocobo mount is quickly forgotten about. To be fair the party does suggest that Prompto ''may'' have left the mount back in his home world, but that is only because the don't want to waste time searching for a Chocobo mount who may not even be in the same world anymore. Ultimately the fate of the poor bird is unknown.

* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Invoked when Prompto talks about his love of using a camera in battle to take pictures, confusing members of the party from more primitive and medieval settings such as Cyan and Maria. Eventually Prompto (as well as Irvine) describe it to them like painting a portrait but instantaneously. Even then Cyan doesn't quite get it as he suggests Prompto take a picture of his deceased family so he can better remember them.

Added DiffLines:


* BirdsOfAFeather:
** Quickly bonds with Bartz and Ace due to their affection for Chocobos, the three becoming fast friends mere seconds after they first find Prompto.
** Also bonds with Irvine over their shared love of cameras, Prompto and his photo camera, and Irvine and his video camera.
* CameraFiend: Prompto is distressed to realize he lost his camera somewhere between arriving in the world of ''Opera Omnia'', and states his sadness at not being able to take pictures of the party in action like he used to do back home.
* DeathOfAThousandCuts: His Trigger Happy EX Ability only hits for minimal BRV + HP Damage, but does so ten times in a row in fast succession.
* FlareGun: Starshell has Prompto firing a flare into the air to provoke the entire enemy team. May also qualify as a [[BlindedByTheLight Flash Bomb]] since it guarantees Prompto will dodge the next attack, but it only affects Prompto and not the rest of the party (in the case of an enemy All-Attack).
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: The effects of his Life of the Party Buff, it transforms his HP+ and BRV+ Attacks into the more powerful Overkill and Crackshot if Prompto uses them on a target that has just been broken, or hit by an ally while they were broken.
