* ClippedWingAngel: [[spoiler:His final fight tries his damnedest to avert this trope, but ultimately fails against a prepared party. Megaflare Cannon's countdown slashes his resistance to all elements down to '''-200%'''; as he only starts using it when he's down to half health, some well-timed -ja magic will break him in half.]]

* ClippedWingAngel: [[spoiler:His final fight tries his damnedest to avert this trope, but ultimately fails against a prepared party. Megaflare Cannon's countdown slashes his resistance to all elements down to '''-200%'''; as he only starts using it when he's down to half health, some well-timed -ja magic will break him in half. Unlike most examples, this doesn't make him an AntiClimaxBoss, as failing to finish him off within that window will automatically topple any stacks that aren't defending when the cannon goes off, and outside of the countdown, he still has every -ja class spell in the book, a way to inflict half of the game's status ailments at once, and acceleration as his HP drops.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MyRulesAreNotYourRules: [[spoiler:Literally. His progress in Grymoire has allowed him to violate the cosmic laws of the A-World that even Enna Kros (read: Alexander herself) cannot defy.]]

* CombatStilletos: Subverted; her boots have some noticeable heels, and she carries a crystal knife like Reynn, but the cutscene before the DualBoss fight with Segwarides and Pellinore shows that her combat role is mostly directing Siren, and an optional conversation in the Nonary Region reveals the knife is mostly a summoning aid.

%%* ButtMonkey* ButtMonkey: No one in Grymoire passes up the opportunity to insult Lann [[spoiler:except the Heralds, who don't bother PokingThePoodle]]. Culminates in an endgame, highly expositional cutscene describing their Mirage Keeper powers, where Reynn, Tama, and Hauyn proceed to lament ''Reynn being related to Lann by blood''.


* ExactWords: She tells Lann and Reynn that although they don't remember Grymoire, Grymoire still remembers them. [[spoiler: Turns out, that doesn't mean Grymoire remembers them ''fondly'': their irresponsibility with Mirages and the less-than-benevolent actions of the Pleiad (Diabolos and Bahamut in particular) led to them being recorded as the "Demon Dyad".]]

->Also known as: Knight in the Black Armour Armour, Bahamut Brandelis, [=Ex9=]-II-5



* OneSteveLimit: Averted. Brandelis and Tiababylo are both Bahamut-class espers, and Tiababylo even indicates they've known each other. Although Brandelis is only ever referred to as "Bahamut Brandelis" in the Who's Who, he is frequently referred to as "King of Bahamut".



* SureLetsGoWithThat: A rather dark version. [[spoiler:Segwarides has been leading the "Bahamutian Federation" while Brandelis has been imprisoned. When Lann asks if he is the King of the Bahamutian Federation, Brandelis' response is "So be it", and he is treated as the King of Bahamut henceforth.]]

Added DiffLines:

* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: At the end of Chapter 21, [[spoiler: Segwarides and Pellinore are dead... revealing that they had transformed the bodies of Lusse and Rorrik. While Hauyn is struggling to help them, Brandelis descends ''in a fireball'', leaving nothing but scorch marks where they had been. Lann, who is already in MyGreatestFailure mode, takes "roaring" to one of the highest peaks of any ''Final Fantasy'' protagonist.]]
-->'''Lann:''' No. You... ''[[BigBad you...]] are '''nothing but dust!'''''
* SuperMode: [[spoiler:When he taps into his latent Architect powers, his gauntlet turns into a massive mechanical arm at least as long as he is tall, with enough power behind it to PunchParry ''Brandelis''. During the game's events, he only manifests crystal cages in this state, although the flashback after the first fight with Pellinore and Segwarides shows he can create them without it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MundaneUtility: For a given value of "mundane", anyways. [[spoiler:He's powerful enough that his threshold gives him the power to change the rules of A-Worlds within their domain. After his first fight with the twins, he blows the roof off the Crystal Tower... and extends his threshold to stop the debris from hitting anybody[[note]]He did need the threshold active in order to get the Ultima Gate to bring in Cogna, but still[[/note]].]]


* GoshDangItToHeck: Lann would be the most fouled mouth protagonist this side of [[SirSwearsALot Cid Highwind]] if his choice of expletives didn't include words like 'honk' and 'schlep'. He does drop the former every time something happens.

Added DiffLines:

* RightForTheWrongReasons: Deduces that Castle Cornelia is at the top of the city (which is built into a ridiculously steep incline)... by mishearing it as "Casa Cornelius" and assuming that "Casa" means "up".
-->'''Tama''': Well, you've the-got the direction correct, even if the rest of that was completely off the-base.

Added DiffLines:

* PalsWithJesus: One of their allies, Enna Kros, outright refers to herself as {{God}}.


* {{Expy}}: Reynn and Lann sound a ''lot'' like [[Music/{{Vocaloid}} Rin and Len]]; besides the names, they also share a few design cues[[labelnote:*]]although Reynn looks more like Rin's "Future Style" design seen in ''Rin-chan Now'' than her normal design[[/labelnote]], and the FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling dynamic is popular in the Vocaloid fandom.
