* WorldPillars: It's revealed that [[spoiler:both the Fellsgalaxen and Orthogalaxen ruins are part of a greater infrastructure supporting the world of Arland itself. The plot of the game eventually shifts to Lulua trying to prevent the collapse of the Fellsgalaxen ruins, which would destroy all of the Arklys region if allowed to happen, as well as save its operator, Stia]].


* NoAntagonist: The major threat [[spoiler:the declining state of the Fellsgalaxen ruins, which isn't anyone's fault. All the major bosses are either on your side and just testing you, or are Stia with her memory temporarily erased.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheArtifact: The game's time mechanics are an artifact of the way older installments were [[TimeManagementGame Time Management Games]]. Even the time limits for optional sidequests have now been removed; time beyond the day-night cycle is used only for two minor recurring yearly events, and even for those, with no constraints on your time you can just wait and trigger them whenever (and as often) as you want.

Added DiffLines:

* BiggerOnTheInside: The interior of the Wagon Atelier is much bigger than what its exterior indicates. This is even discussed in-game by Lulua and Piana where it's revealed that the interior is actually inside some sort of PocketDimension created by alchemy, as Piana warns Lulua not to add too many windows or else the entire wagon collapses in on itself.

Added DiffLines:

* MundaneMadeAwesome: The arm-wrestling contest against Sterk during the Arland Festival. A simple ButtonMashing minigame with only a small Cole prize is turned into an epic spectacle, complete with {{Battle Aura}}s erupting into a PillarOfLight, and a DistantReactionShot of a giant explosion engulfing the town if you win.

Added DiffLines:

* GenderEqualEnsemble: Including Chim Dragon and Stia, the main ensemble consists of five boys and five girls.

Added DiffLines:

* RougeAnglesOfSatin: "Rock Puni" is misspelled as "Rock Punk".

Added DiffLines:

* AgonyOfTheFeet: Night's Domain turns out to be much too dark to explore when you first get there; this is illustrated by having everyone accidentally step on Ficus' feet. When you later return with some night-vision goggles, Ficus still ends up getting stepped on.

Added DiffLines:

* OrphanageOfLove: The Armster Orphanage in Arklys is run by Father Benon, a FriendToAllChildren who does everything he can to make sure the orphans are happy and safe.


* AscendedExtra: Chim Dragon was previously one of the chims that showed up for Totori's LimitBreak in ''Atelier Meruru''. He was turned into a full-sized Homonculus by a special potion.



* {{BFG}}: Eva Armster has a huge cannon that's bigger than she is.



* HairDecorations: Lulua wears heart-shaped decorations in her hair.



* MagicStaff: As usual for an ''Atelier'' heroine, Lulua wields a staff in combat.


* TakeAThirdOption: At the end of chapter 9, Lulua is faced with a cruel choice: [[spoiler:Fellsgalaxen has become so severely damaged that the it could collapse at any moment, which would lead to the total destruction of the Arklys region. The only way to fix it is to use Fellsgalaxen's self-repair system, which would require Stia to sacrifice herself to activate it]]. The game doesn't give you the choice to [[spoiler:allow your hometown to be destroyed]], but you can also choose to reject both possibilities (and are required to do so to avoid the bad ending): [[spoiler:by creating a Memory Core, Lulua creates a backup of Stia's consciousness, and once the repair process is done, she can forcibly remove Stia from the device and re-upload her mind into her body]].

The game is set after the events of ''VideoGame/AtelierMeruruTheApprenticeOfArland'', in a frontier town called Arklys in the recently-expanded Arland Republic. The heroine this time is Elmerulia "Lulua" Fryxell, daughter of Rorona. Though she studies hard to surpass her mother, she is not particularly talented at the art. Lulua finds a strange book titled "Alchemy Riddle", which only she can read, and which mysteriously reveals a hint whenever she needs to use alchemy to solve a problem. One day, Lulua receives a letter informing her that her mother's Atelier is about to be shut down due to its license expiring. In order to save the workshop, Lulua heads towards Arland.

* AlternateTimeline: [[spoiler: The Alchemy Riddle that Lulua relies on is revealed to have been entrusted to her by a parallel world's Lulua who failed to save her Stia. If the Lulua the player plays as successfully saves the Stia of this world, then she will venture to this parallel world to help its Lulua save its Stia.
