Added DiffLines:

* PrestigeClass: Very, very early versions of the game had Fighter, Gunner, and Techer as these, where you would need to get to a high enough level in their respective "parent" classes (Hunter, Ranger, Force), then clear a special Quest to unlock them. This was later removed, and now Fighter, Gunner, and Techer are all counted as regular classes.

Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:After her sister falls under DemonicPossession, Khorshid ditches Viener and joins the Darker Busters to try to find a way to save Akhtar.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Akhtar uses the Score become host to Dark Falz in an act of goodwill. Unfortunately, this causes her to become the BigBad for the remainder of the Season.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MechanicallyUnusualFighter: The ''IDOLA'' Chips have access to a unique "Fate Divergence" mechanic inspired by the mechanic of the same name from their home game. Instead of having access to an advanced version of the Chip through Chip Release, the ''IDOLA'' Chips can perform Fate Divergence, changing the Chip into alternative Law and Chaos variations with different Elements and possibly different Abilities. Performing Fate Divergence repeatedly allows the player to cycle between the Chip's base, Law, and Chaos versions, giving the player the option to change the Chip to suit their deck.


* CallBack: [[spoiler:As Hade dies in front of Duna, Quna mentions that the spirits of Dragonkin are reincarnated upon death, but as Hade is borne from a Chrome Dragon, who is an artificial Dragonkin, his spirit will vanish.]] This fact was previously touched upon during [[spoiler:Hadred's death]] in ''EPISODE 1'' in the main game.

** Ulc is indirectly mentioned by Annette in Season 3 Chapter 7, who mentions that the "current commander" [[{{Muggle}} lacks the ability to use Photons.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The ''VideoGame/IDOLAPhantasyStarSaga'' Chips have the ability to change Element with a Chip Release in a similar manner to Mag Chips, emulating the Fate Divergence mechanic from their home game.


Added DiffLines:

* OneSteveLimit: Season 3 introduces a term called "Darker Weapons" that is a key element of the Season. This is ''not'' to be confused with the term used in ''[=PSO2=]'', which uses the exact same kanji but refers exclusively to the A.I.S. Exoda, an A.I.S. corrupted by Darker Factor. "Darker Weapon" in the context of ''es'' refers to [[spoiler:Darkers that have been modified to be controllable by non-Darker entities, such as the Erzimarut]].

''Phantasy Star Online 2es''[[note]]The "es" stands for "essence", which is to be pronounced like the letter S, not E-S[[/note]] is a free to play mobile game/companion app spinoff of the hit MMORPG ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline2'', and the first ever ''Phantasy Star'' title to arrive on mobile devices. It was released for Android devices on April 7th, 2014, and for [=iOS=] on May 14th, 2014.

Added DiffLines:

** A 2019 update added an Element Filter for the Friend Assist menu similar to ''IDOLA'' that lets you sort Friends by the Element of the Chip in the loan slot. Prior to this, if you wanted a specific Friend you had to scroll down the list manually. The same update also made it so you can set your Assist Chip independent of the party you're currently using, whereas you were not allowed to before.

Added DiffLines:

** The early November 2019 update added a Quest Retry button similar to the one used in ''IDOLA''. It also added a Skip All button for the results screen, mitigating the need to interact with the game after every Quest.

Added DiffLines:

** Parallel Slider Type-0 simply allows you to pump lead into a target while moving. The added mobility makes the PA extremely safe to use outside of the long startup animation, making it one of the go-to Chips for high-risk endgame content like Nightmare Tower where melee [=PAs=] will usually get you killed.


** Seiga Javelin saps 90% of your HP to raise your ATK by a staggering '''15,500 (17,000 SP)'''. It also starts regenerating 5% of your HP every 2 seconds to heal off the effect.

Added DiffLines:

* MiniMecha: [[spoiler:Suleiman hops into an ARKS Interception Silhouette to challenge the Darker Busters in one last stand. This isn't just any AIS though; Suleiman created it by combining it with Erzimarut tech, allowing it to run on Darker Factor as a power source. Bruno notes that this AIS is far more souped up than the average mech.]]


** [[spoiler:Suleiman is ultimately revealed to want to create a new ARKS that won't have to worry about losing its purpose when the Darker threat is eradicated, where people with and without Photon capability can fight on equal footing and . The problems: 1. He's trying to weaponize Darker Factor for this, and 2. He wants to rule the new ARKS, which the Darker Busters unanimously decree is an awful idea. Unfortunately, Suleiman crossed the deep end a long time ago, requiring the Darker Busters to beat the snot out of him.]]

* WellIntentionedExtremist: Khorshid [[spoiler:wants to unseal the Dark Falz locked away in the Erzimats' home planet to destroy it once and for all so the planet can be free.]] Akhtar opposes this action for obvious reasons (and this usually doesn't go well based on franchise history). Shockingly, ''Gene'', of all people, seems to take Khorshid's side on this one.
