Added DiffLines:

* PointAndClickMap: Well, arrow-keys map, but still. [[GameplayAndStorySegregation Somehow]], if you intentionally return to an area which is the only route between two places (Misty Gorge, the Dread Lands) you have to fight the monsters there, but if you "travel by map" you can pass through them without incident.

* ForMassiveDamage: The Big Robots can be damaged by hitting them while they're deactivated, but dropping them through the floor is much more effective. Same for the Kobold boss, hitting it while it's charging its death ball attack, and whaling on it ''after'' stunning it with a well-placed javelin.


* ButThouMust: When you find Alex and the kids, if you keep saying you want to go back to the village and not proceed into the caves, eventually Ella says you're being mean, and Alex decides you have to go in the caves as a punishment for making her cry.

** When Alex says someone needs to go and find Ruth, you have the options of saying "Me" or "You". If you say "You", Alex replies "No way! It has to be you!"


** The bandits in Atai are really just environmentalists protesting the slaughter of baby Sand Dragons for bacon, although, considering their behaviour around Gale, this is more an InformedAttribute from a girl in the city than anything. [[spoiler:Until you wake up the leader's pet Sand Dragon, anyway.]]

Added DiffLines:

*** Even more subtly, [[spoiler: a lot of things Gale pulls off are characterized as "not humanly possible" by one NPC or another.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AdvancingBossOfDoom: Unit 66.

Added DiffLines:

*** This is at first related to the concept of ki that a few people, children, and Gale herself, practice and comment on. [[spoiler:This may or may not be a big hint that ''everyone currently inhabiting the Earth'' are descendants of a Phoenix Weapon that escaped stasis, which might explain the minuscule grasp that Gale has on her own power. Only the sequel will tell.]]


* DoomedHometown: All the adults in Panselo are abducted by aliens early in the game, forcing the children to run the village while Gale seeks aid. Somewhat subverted by the trope standards, the hometown survives unscathed, and the children who remained had to take matters into hands about surviving on a farm community. [[spoiler: Completely subverted in the ending, at least in the literal meaning of "doomed": those who were captured were the ones who got unscathed. [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Everyone else who remained]] ''[[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt in the planet]]'' [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt are to be harvested by the GF]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* YouALLLookFamiliar: There are several identical little girls, old men, old ladies, guards, men in turbans, and innkeepers.

Added DiffLines:

* YouHaveResearchedBreathing: The Scroll of Rolling, which even the inventory description seems surprised Gale needed ("You paid money for this?") WordOfGod on [[http://phoenotopia.com/post/143241407353/a-battle-video Quell's blog]] is that he was never happy with this (coming very close to calling the trope by name!) and will do things differently in the sequel.
