* EpicFail: Zeke's first attempt at using Ultimate Lightning Fury Slash somehow manages to be even ''more'' embarrassing than it was in the game - he slips on a dead fish, of all things, bashing his head into the ground and instantly knocking him unconscious.


* WorthyOpponent: After realizing that they're more-or-less evenly matched during their duel, Zeke and Vandham mutually acknowledge each other as skilled opponents.

''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13007384/1/Another-Chronicle Another Chronicle]]'' is a ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2'' fanfic written by [[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/5568429/ Other Red]]. Described by the author as a "sort-of retelling/sort-of [[AlternateUniverseFic AU]]", it serves to ask one simple question: what if Nia became the Aegis's driver rather than Rex? With Nia leading the party through the events of the game, not everything will play out quite the same.

!!''Another Chronicle'' contains examples of:
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: When Mythra is shouting at Nia for [[spoiler:freezing up in the middle of a fight after Dromarch's death]], Rex asks a question which stops her rant cold and makes her realize that her anger is only hurting Nia worse.
-->'''Rex:''' She'd just [[spoiler:lost Dromarch.]] How was she supposed to react?
* AscendedExtra: Corvin, an OptionalPartyMember only added to the game via DLC, gets promoted to the main cast when he [[spoiler:becomes Rex's Blade]].
* BigDamnHeroes: Rex rushes in to attack Jin just before he can finish off Nia, distracting him and buying enough time for Dromarch to heal her.
* CurbStompBattle: [[spoiler: Tora's attempt to go head-to-head with Malos]] goes very poorly, with his opponent easily seeing through his attacks, distracting him, and literally kicking him across the battlefield.
* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:Dromarch dies during the battle at Fonsa Myma]], when he survived all the way to the end of the game.
* EyeScream: [[spoiler:Akhos]] gets slashed across his right eye by [[spoiler:Dromarch's ring blade]], and several chapters later it's revealed that he couldn't heal the wound and had to take up wearing an eyepatch.
* ForWantOfANail: It's the entire premise of the story. Nia chooses to walk into the room holding Pyra's sword before Rex does, and that single decision gradually spirals outwards. The first chapter is even called "A Small Change".
* HeroicBSOD: Nia is totally crushed when [[spoiler:Dromarch is killed]], going practically unresponsive and simply standing there as [[spoiler:Malos and Akhos try to kill her. Mythra's awakening]] snaps her out of it long enough to finish the fight, but as soon as it's done, she quickly breaks down again. It takes a heartfelt conversation with Rex the next morning to keep her going.
* LampshadeHanging: When Nia first sees [[SexyBacklessOutfit Pyra's outfit]], she immediately wonders if it gets chilly on windy days.
* MythologyGag: Fan la Norne mentions that camping out with the protagonists feels oddly familiar, a reference to the camp mechanic from ''Torna ~ The Golden Country''.
* ParentalSubstitute: Although true to some extent in the original game as well, this story goes out of its way to emphasize Dromarch's caring and protective attitude towards Nia, and how she often leans on him for emotional support.
* ThePromise: When Dromarch first met Nia, he promised to "always stand by her side, to support her whenever she needed him, no matter what", and he takes that duty very seriously. [[spoiler:He isn't able to keep it on account of dying.]]
* RealityEnsues: Just like in the game, Tora is a skilled inventor who spent almost all of his time working on [[RobotGirl Poppi]]. Except since he dedicated all his time to that, he couldn't spend time on other useful things, like combat training. As a result, he's the least skilled fighter among the protagonists, even with Poppi's help. [[spoiler:Malos wastes no time in pointing this out when Tora attempts to fight him.]]
* SmarterThanYouLook: Corvin may have the general demeanor of a cocky, impulsive teenager, but he's a lot more perceptive than he seems. He repeatedly notices small details which other characters might overlook. Mythra even acknowledges this when he easily picks up on the hidden meaning behind a question Pyra asked.
* SorryThatImDying: When [[spoiler:Dromarch]] is fatally wounded, his first thought is to apologize [[spoiler:for failing his promise to always stand by Nia.]]
* SparedByTheAdaptation: [[spoiler:Vandham]] survives his canon fate, due to not even being present at the battle that would have killed him.
* TapOnTheHead: Malos punches Nia in the head hard enough to instantly knock her unconscious, and though she has a headache when she wakes up, she's otherwise fine.
* WorthyOpponent: After realizing that they're more-or-less evenly matched during their duel, Zeke and Vandham mutually acknowledge each other as skilled opponents.
