* AdaptationExpansion: The trailers add new story elements that that weren't featured in the original game:
** In the [=PSX=] 2015 trailer the other AVALANCHE members, Jessie, Biggs, and Wedge, are seen discussing Cloud's trustworthiness before his arrival by train. Their characters as a whole are expounded upon where the original title did not, and Jessie even flirts with Cloud a few times in the 2019 Orchestra and E3 trailers.
** In the State of Play trailer Cloud is shown experiencing momentary blackouts during the opening power plant sabotage, and in the E3 trailer he has a hallucination of Sephiroth telling him to stay alive and cling to his hatred.
** In the 2019 Orchestra trailer, after selling Cloud one of her flowers, Aerith suddenly drops her basket and backs away in horror and disgust, then grabs Cloud's arm. The E3 2019 trailer expands the scene even further, with the couple being surrounded by shadowy figures that appear as soon as Aerith touches Cloud.
** The E3 2019 trailer shows a new motorcycle section, with Jessie riding behind Cloud as they flee from Shinra soldiers down a set of train tracks.
** In the E3 2019 trailer, Tifa has new dialogue in which she expresses discomfort with the lengths that the other members of AVALANCHE are willing to go to, telling Cloud she feels trapped.
* AdaptationalModesty: Tifa's updated appearance plays with this. She has a visible black sports bra on under her white tank top, black bike shorts under her skirt, and her original short socks have been replaced with black thigh-highs that send her into Grade A ZettaiRyouiki territory. That being said, her new tops still cover as much as her original did in regards to her cleavage, ''less'' in regards to her midriff, and her new thigh-highs still show off her shapely legs.
* ArbitraryHeadcountLimit: The 2019 State of Play and E3 2019 trailers have several scenes of parties in battle with a maximum of three party members at once.

* LimitBreak: The Limit Break system makes a grand return, albeit reworked a bit. Mainly in that you can now still perform basic attacks while the meter is completely full, as Limit Breaks how have their own section in the Tactical Mode Command Menu and performing them costs just the Limit Break bar. That said, certain Limit Breaks, like Cloud's Braver, have been demoted to Abilities that just cost ATB bars. Cloud's Cross Slash, Tifa's Dolphin Kick, and Barret's Big Shot (renamed "Fire in the Hole") do make returns as Limit Breaks, though.

* ActionRPG: The 2015 [=PlayStation=] Experience gameplay trailer and the 2019 State of Play trailer for the game display a unique cross-combination of ActionAdventure mechanics à la ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' and ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'', a version of the Stagger mechanic from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'', and the traditional ATB. The E3 2019 showcase expands and explains it: the real-time combat lets you perform basic attacks to build the ATB bars and switch between two combat modes, although hotkeys can be assigned for using abilities, magic, or items for this mode. Once a single ATB bar is filled, you can to into a Tactical Mode, which lets you choose from more options in the Command Menu. Said Command Menu lets you choose to use special abilities, magic, and items. Performing Abilities or using Items simply costs a certain amount of ATB bars, while using Magic costs both ATB bars and MP. While Limit Breaks are still a thing and still have their own dedicated bar, some of the previous Limit Breaks have been demoted to Abilities.

* InformedEquipment: Averted. Each playable character is shown wielding their equipped weapon in real time. Unlike the original game, however, armor is also shown when it is equipped, which is rather easy since all the armor in the game are various armlets, bangles, and bracelets. Adding onto ''that'', Materia is also shown being visibly slotted in the weapons and armor.

* ActorAllusion: An odd inversion of sorts. Creator/TylerHoechlin voices Sephiroth in this game, making him the [[Creator/GeorgeNewbern second]] [[Series/Supergirl2015 Superman]] to voice the character.
