Added DiffLines:

* PeninsulaOfPowerLeveling:
** The Avenue of Power is intentionally designed to help players level up quickly by providing lots of crystals that can be used to level up adventurers.
** The Preludes for the Advance Dragon Trials are toned down versions of {{Bonus Boss}}es meant to teach the mechanics, but the weekly bonus provides a lot of Succulent Fruits and Crimson Cores, especially if it's combined with the [[BribingYourWayToVictory Double Daily Quest]] buff. However, those bonuses are only available three times a week.


* InfinityMinusOneSword: The Fólkvangr sword that you can get during the "Fire Emblem: Lost Heroes" event is outright stated to be just a replica of Alfonse's sword and is only slightly better than a fully unbound and leveled up 4 star sword. It does have the bonus of increasing strength once the wielder has their HP under 50% health.

** The 4-star strength dragons obtained by summoning (Ifrit, Vodyanoy, Roc, Lindworm, and Juggernaut) provide a 45% strength boost when fully unbound, making them very effective for late game content while being fairly easy to obtain and power up.


** Wyrmprints gain stronger effects if they're fully unbound.

** Wyrmprints gain stronger effects if they're fully unbound. After the April 2018 update, it was buffed so that they have upgrades every two unbind levels, making a fully unbound version even stronger.

* HarderThanHard: The rerun of "Resplendent Refrain" introduces the Nightmare difficulty for the raid boss Sabnock, where he's even tougher than his EX version.

* ArbitraryMissionRestriction: Some levels fix the stats of your party. On one hand, this means you can't cheese the quest by bringing in high-level adventurers; on the other hand, this means you don't have to miss out if you only have low-level characters.



* DialogDuringGameplay: Certain quests have characters converse about recent story events. During single-player, your party might make some general comments during certain events as well.



** In the "Fire Emblem: Lost Heroes" event, the normal and hard versions "The Alberian Front" are manageable, even if some errors occur. The Lunatic version, on the other hand, requires your team to be agile and coordinate well, as the enemies are far more hardy and strong. One wrong move and you'll find yourself failing the level in short order.



* LetsYouAndHimFight: During "Fire Emblem: Lost Heroes", the Prince's crew come across Alfonse escorting Veronica. As the Prince's crew saw someone resembling Veronica leading Dyrenell troops earlier, they assume Alfonse to be part of Dyrenell and demand that he and Veronica surrender to them. Alfonse refuses to do so, and they square off.

Alfonse Alfonse, on the other hand, saved the real Veronica from Dyrenell troops pursuing her and assumes the Prince and crew to be part of Dyrenell as well. As neither side refuses to do so, and submit to the other, they square off.



* ProtectionMission: The first part of a Defensive Battle requires you to defend a key location from advancing enemy troops.



* SocializationBonus: You can bring a support character set out by other players and use their skill once during a level. However, if you're friends with the other player, you can use it three times instead.

You can bring a support character set out by other players and use their skill once during a level. However, if you're friends with the other player, you can use it three times instead. When friends use your support character, you earn mana as well.
** Some missions can be made considerably easier by playing them in co-op.


** The "Fire Emblem: Lost Heroes" event adds Alfonse as one to the event, making his attacks hit like a truck and also using force strikes like the players can, letting everone know why he's called “[[FanNickname the Benchlord]].”

* DangerousPhlebotinumInteraction: During the ''Fire Emblem Heroes'' crossover, it turns out that the Askran and Emblan dimensional powers from ''Fire Emblem'' interact ''very badly'' with the ''Dragalia'' world. The Prince and his allies already deal with rifts to the space between worlds on a regular basis, and the presence of Alphonse and Veronica together causes these rifts to open and shut uncontrollably, tearing the world apart. ''Emblem'' villainess Loki even set up the crossover for this very purpose, in order [[ForTheEvulz to mess with everyone for laughs]].



** The equivalent of Easter is called the Vernal Banquet, and it's a holiday celebrated by sylvans. It even comes with an egg hunt.
** Funnily enough, Halloween and Valentine's don't get the same treatment and remains the same holidays that we know.

hunt. It makes sense that there would be ''a'' vernal equinox celebration, but little in-universe reason is given for the resemblance to the actual holiday (and unlike Easter, the Vernal Banquet has no religious connotations).
** Both New Years' (calendar and lunar) are celebrated just as in real life. Their resemblance to actual Japanese and Chinese traditions is justified by being presented by ''Dragalia''[='s=] {{Fantasy Counterpart Culture}}s to Japan and China.
** Funnily enough, Halloween and Valentine's don't get the same treatment and remains remain the same holidays that we know.know. If nothing else, the chances of a namesake "Saint Valentine" existing in the ''Dragalia'' world are very slim.


* ReusedCharacterDesign: A typical trend when it comes to titles made by Cygames. Several ''Rage of Bahamut'' characters make [[TheCameo cameos]] in this game in the form of Wyrmprints. But the notable examples of this trope include the dragons, the designs of some are based on another Cygames title, ''Knights of Glory''. Other cases include having exactly the same version of existing ''Rage'' characters but with minor changes (such as Lily and Leviathan), or ''Dragalia'' characters being [[{{Expy}} look-alikes]] of those who originate from other games made by this developer (such as ''Dragalia'''s Harle being almost identical with ''Granblue'''s Sandalphon, from the hair down to the color scheme of his armor).

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: This gets asked in-universe during Chapter 6. The Prince is 7th in line to the throne, Emile is 6th and Valyx is 4th. This makes Ranzal ask what happened to #5. The Prince has no idea since whatever happened was well before his time.

** "New Years Tidings Fortune from Afar" can be seen as one, airing after the release of an eventful chapter 7 and having no real antagonist, unlike the previous raid events.
** The ValentinesDayEpisode, "Valentine's Confection," is all about the main characters and the representing Valentine-variation of the adventurers and their business. Unlike other events, it has no storyline and bosses, and the resource for the event is acquired by just completing quests.

** ''Dream Big Under the Big Top'' facility event introduced a new difficulty level for challenge battles, Master difficulty. This is almost the same as other facility events' challenge battles where the player needs to face 5 waves of enemies, except the difficulty is jacked UpToEleven, as normal {{Mooks}} are capable of dealing ''200-300 damage per attack'' while all of the bosses' attacks can instantly kill your adventurer.

Notably, it shows Euden's relationship with even his siblings that have yet to be properly introduced.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Five-star characters. Because of the astonishingly low rates for summoning five star anything, a rate that is divided between characters, dragons, and wyrmprints, it's very rare to find any five-star character. It's simply a better strategy to build a team of four-star or even some three-star characters and train them well than hold out to get five-star characters.[[note]]Though starting with a later update, every player will be guaranteed to be able to get at least one five-star adventurer for free.[[/note]]

* BonusBoss: The Advanced Dragon Trials, featuring a High version on one of the Greatwyrms. They're much more fierce than their regular counterparts, with souped-up versions of their regular attacks and many new and tricky moves. They require a high amount of Might to unlock, and even then if you're not careful you'll find yourself downed in short order. Taking them down requires high-end equipment and an incredibly powerful and coordinated team, but if you win, you'll be able to use the High Greatwyrm, who is on the same level as the summonable 5-star dragons, as your shapeshift dragon.
