Added DiffLines:

* AllSwordsAreTheSame: Reviel and Luna's attack animations are the same no matter which weapons they equip. This is especially blatant in Reviel's case, since he can dual-wield daggers, katanas, [[OneHandedZweihander two-handed swords]], etc with equal skill. That said, there are some distinctions between the types of swords, since the type of the sword determines which stats it specializes in.


* ExtraTurn:
** The Speed Star formation gives player characters a small chance of getting consecutive turns. The enemy skill, Overclock, gives the same effect to the user, but with a higher activation rate.
** Several skills, such as Shadow Ripper, can deplete the target's ATB bar.

* BigBad: At first, Ristill seems to be the most antagonistic figure to Reviel by setting a barrier around Algiz to weaken him. [[spoiler:Then it turns out Khaos was the one who made the barrier as a way to make Reviel and Ristill's conflict more interesting and to alert the others to his real plan of destroying and reconstructing the world.]]
* BitterSweetEnding: [[spoiler:The world is saved, but Khaos ends up committing suicide despite the party's efforts to save him. And while Luna is accepted back into the village, Reviel leaves because he knows his misdeeds can't be forgiven that easily, though he plans to return to Algiz someday. Shylphiel is left without her master and decides to take care of Khaos's cabin for the rest of her life, but she at least has Ristill to lend her mana.]]

* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: The game almost seems to have an ending after the party defeats [[DiscOneFinalBoss Ristill]] and Reviel prepares to say his goodbyes to the village. However, the maid in the inn hints that there's someone else who needs to be saved. [[spoiler:Then Khaos attacks the village and challenges the party to stop his plan to destroy the world.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Luna's Berserk Curse increases the target's offensive abilities and doubles their speed, but sets their physical and magical defenses to 0.


* TheCaligula: The Revolutionary War from eight years ago was fought to depose Gilbard, the mad ruler of the region around Algiz.

* TheCaligula: The Revolutionary War from eight years ago was fought to depose Gilbard, the mad ruler of the region around Algiz. According to Luna, the nation would have eventually collapsed under his continued rule.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtificialStupidity:
** During certain segments of the game, Luna is controlled by an AI to defend or heal wounded party members with items. It's rare but possible for her to use an item right after the last enemy has been killed.
** The FinalBoss will sometimes use Elemental Raid multiple times in a row to change their weakness, which is a relief for the player if the boss does this while in the Overdrive state, since this wastes their chances of getting consecutive turns.

Added DiffLines:

* PuzzleBoss:
** The Serpent Lord, Rock Mold, [[spoiler:Shylphiel]], and the FinalBoss all have barriers that require specific elements or skills to break. Most of these barriers also allow them to counter certain actions until they're broken.
** The first match against the bonus boss team was clearly intended to be beaten with Eye of Illusion spam, otherwise a non-silenced Main will use Twilight to give his team a huge advantage.

Added DiffLines:

* HealingHerb: Story-wise, Khaos grows several herbs that can be used to dispel curses. Gameplay-wise, herbs can be used to apply a GradualRegeneration effect on the target, unlike potions that heal instantaneously, but recovers less HP per unit.

Added DiffLines:

* TakingYouWithMe: Mystic Flame and Mystic Ice have Final Flame and Eternal Freeze respectively, which allows them to deal high elemental damage to an entire party at the cost of being knocked-out. Some bosses will summon palette swaps of these two, which will immediately try to cast a spell version of these self-destruct skills.

Added DiffLines:

* DifficultButAwesome: If two spells are cast at around the same time, the second one can continue the hit counter and the enemy's formation won't be reset in-between spells, potentially allowing smaller AOE spells to hit more targets than usual. The timing to chain two spells is very difficult to grasp, but pulling off this technique can wreck {{Wolfpack Boss}}es.
