* ShaggyDogStory: The Ponspectors were investigating the Bionis' Shoulder to find Golden Shrooms they can sell to get enough money to keep their team afloat. At first, it seems to be all for nothing when they find the chest containing them only to discover all of the shrooms have dried up. Then it's subverted when one of them looks beneath the shrooms to find treasure they can use, ultimately succeeding in their mission.



* EvilCounterpart: To Melia. Both of them are half-Homs High Entia who faced discrimination from pure-blood High Entia, but while Melia doesn't hold a grudge against pure-blood High Entia and wishes to live with them in peace, Gael'gar hates pure-blood High Entia and wants half-Homs High Entia to reign supreme. Both of them also use elements in battle, Melia through her staff and Gael'gar through his sword.

* {{Foil}}: To Lorithia. Both of them start off as allies, yet are ObviouslyEvil, and end up becoming villains to nobody's surprise. While Lorithia uses the pureblood High Entia to transform into Telethia, Gael'gar constantly praises the halfbloods and believes the transformation of the purebloods is a divine implication.
** Also to Tyrea. Both of them try to kill Melia in order to support their race of High Entia, and in both cases she's saved by Shulk. However, Tyrea does it for the purebloods, while Gael'gar does it for the halfbloods. While Tyrea comes back from being a DeathSeeker, Gael'gar is eventually DrivenToSuicide. In addition, while Tyrea redeems herself, Gael'gar doesn't redeem himself. Finally, Tyrea wields dual daggers while Gael'gar fights with a large broadsword.

* KarmicDeath: When we first see him, he impales Fiora with his claws. When we last see him, he gets impaled while falling off Sword Valley. Even further, he dies as a result of rejecting Shulk and Dunban's choice to spare his life.
** Additionally, Metal Face was directly responsible for every death that occured in spite of Shulk's visions, ultimately including his own.

* YouCantFightFate: Every vision involving Mumkhar in the story comes true, from killing Fiora, to killing Sorean, to his own death.

Added DiffLines:

* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Her eyes become these when she uses her most powerful attacks. Notably rather than just turn golden in color they outright shine with golden light.


* HijackingCthulhu: Since the Mechonis is a HumongousMecha, it's possible for anyone to pilot it with the right equipment, as Egil proves when he briefly reawakens it in one of the climax moments of the plot. However, it's movements are a lot stiffer and slower than when the actual soul of the Mechonis is controlling it.

However, it's movements are a lot stiffer and slower than when the actual soul of the Mechonis is controlling it. Further, since he was not Meyneth, Egil had to use an alternate power source, namely the ether of the Bionis, and adapting the Mechonis to it meant that for some time he couldn't get it moving at all.

* MechanicallyUnusualClass: Melia doesn't have a basic auto attack like everyone else. In order to use her skills, you select up to three of her abilities to queue up and then fire them off with the center ability on the skill wheel. This has the unfortunate effect of inducing ArtificialStupidity, as an AI controlled Melia doesn't utilize her spells in the best or fastest capacity.

In order to use her skills, you select up to three of her abilities to queue up and then fire them off attacks, unless she's equipped with a Talent Boost gem. Instead, it's filled by discharging the center ability on the skill wheel.elements she summons. This has the unfortunate effect of inducing ArtificialStupidity, as an AI controlled Melia doesn't utilize her spells in the best or fastest capacity.



* SuperMode: When Melia's Talent Gauge is full, she enters Element Burst. While Element Burst is active, her Elemental Discharges deal more damage and she can use Burst End and Mind Blast. Element Burst has a chance of ending each time Melia discharges an element, although the chance gets lower the higher her tension is.
