* Ashe, Hilda, and Linhardt all couldn't sleep which is why they join you in Abyss mode. Seems weird for ''Linhardt'' for all people to be up at this hour, right? Not so much - he sleeps so much during the day that he probably has difficulty sleeping at night.

Added DiffLines:

* If Manuela isn't recruited in the Azure Moon route, she'll appear in Dimitri's paralogue "The Silver Maiden"...as an assassin. It seems strange considering if she is recruited, she is in the Priest class, which heavily utilizes white magic. However, consider that white magic is derived from faith, along with her sword proficiency, it all makes sense. She's no longer in a faith-based class because she lost her faith in the goddess, so she utilizes her other proficiency.

Added DiffLines:

*** There is also a bit of Fridge Heartwarming in the fact he specializes in Faith magic. While his strength in Reason makes sense seeing as he's, despite his laziness, a keen researcher, it's hard to see where his skill in Faith comes from seeing as he doesn't seem particularly religious and, [[NoSocialSkills considering his]] [[ForScience usual research methods]], doesn't seem to have much respect for the Church outside of as a possible research subject. But then you remember that his ChildhoodFriend is Caspar, [[HotBlooded who's a reckless fighter who tends to get into trouble and start fights]]. With that in mind, it wouldn't be out of the question to assume he took up healing magic so he could patch Caspar up more easily.

Added DiffLines:

** Granted, Seteth was planning on leaving for quite some time, and considering he must have access to a vast amount of funds due to being a noble and head of finance in the Church, plus experience of hiding and changing identities over centuries, he and Flayn will at least be safe and comfortable, or perhaps they can find a better life in other continents.


** Jeritza's weaknesses are in Faith and Authority. It's made abundantly clear in his supports with Mercedes he despises Crests for how much pain and suffering it brought onto not only himself, but his beloved mother and older sister, thus having low faith in the goddess and the church. As for his low authority growth, it's shown that his BloodKnight Death Knight identity makes him not hesitate to disobey orders from authority, such as being willing to abandon his soldiers to the javelins of light in the Verdant Wind/Silver Snow routes. This isn't helped with him being TheDreaded, making him difficult to approach, to where only his sister and Byleth are capable of supporting him.

* In Seteth and Flayn's paralogue, the fanatics of the Western Church are occupying tombs belonging to Cichol and Cethlenn, two saints revered by the entirety of the Church. This is hilarious because as we know Seteth and Flayn are said saints, and the fanatics are trying to kill them out of their own self righteous belief and because they misinterpret what the thought to be dead Cethlenn and Cichol want. This becomes less humorous when it foreshadows Seiros's motivations as an antagonist in Crimson Flower, who is trying to kill Byleth because in her insanity, she blames them for taking her mother away, when in reality Sothis actually is aiding Byleth and woke them up in the first place. This paralogue also additionally foreshadows Dimitri's own obsession with the dead and misinterpretation of what the dead desire.

Added DiffLines:

** Assuming the Slitherers would even let her keep a weapon she could use against ''them'' just as easily. She likely didn't have it on her during that time.

Added DiffLines:

** Mercedes is the only one of the Lions not to have fur in her time skip outfit. This is a reflection both of her pacifistic nature and a nod to the fact that she was originally from the warmer climates in Adrestia; she likely wouldn’t wear fur for those reasons.


** On another note, all of the other routes start with the primary objective of winning the war, but then take a detour when the main lords decide to also uncover truths that are important to them and/or all of Fódlan. But Edelgard stubbornly refuses to believe she’s wrong about the “truths” of Fódlan she learned from TWSITD and from the Hresvelg line, she doesn’t bother to assume she’s wrong and wouldn’t waste time trying to uncover the actual truth. She’d rather just get the war done with.

* As mentioned above, Dorothea has a budding talent for Faith, but when fighting her as an enemy she’s in the Warlock class. On other routes, fellow mage Lysithea can upgrade into a Gremory, who utilizes both types of magic. Becoming a Gremory is actually very easy for Dorothea, so why not her too? Well, one obvious reason would be that without Byleth, she never discovered her budding talent. But, as a general for the Empire, who literally started a war with the Church, Dorothea would have abandoned the need for Faith a long as soon as she joined the Black Eagle Strike Force, and cutting out the option of being a Gremory.

Added DiffLines:

* The Crimson Flower route is the shortest one in the game with 18 chapters. This actually makes sense. In all the other routes the Empire starts off with the upper hand post-timeskip and it's an uphill battle to defeat them. But in Crimson Flower, you're playing as the Empire, meaning that by the time of the timeskip half of Fódland's already been conquered and you can easily steamroll the rest.

* The Ashen Wolves all represent one of the factions in the game. Wait a minute, this is ''three'' houses - there are ''four'' Ashen Wolves, so who's the fourth? Obviously... that's [[spoiler: Yuri. Because he's working for Rhea - therefore he represents the Church of Seiros - Silver Snow]].

* Why are there so few playable units that can naturally learn dark magic? One reason is that, [[VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden like how it was back in Valentia]], "Those who slither in the dark" are the main practitioners of dark magic, and so most enemy units that do use it belong to that group, with only the rare few who practice it normally. Second is that Lysithea and Edelgard were experimented on by "Those who slither", with the experiments giving them access to dark magic, while Hubert has taken to studying any scraps given by said group, allowing him to learn their magic even if he can't replicate the weapons given away. Jeritza, who is closely affiliated with Hubert and "those who slither in the dark," can also learn dark magic. One of the upcoming DLC characters, Hapi, also learns dark magic; she has a Major Crest of Timotheos, and the NewGamePlus item that bestows this crest on its holder is called the ''Dark'' Dragon Sign.
