* DecapitatedArmy: Averted. The heroes manage to take out the dragon Sandora was using to devastate Basil's army so naturally the stalemate will be restored right? Nope. Because of how devastated Basil's army is (five different knighthoods are confirmed to have been completely wiped out), Sandora's conventional army marches on their capital and captures it with relatively little fuss.

Added DiffLines:

** Haschel's ultimate weapon, the Destroyer Mace, deals up to twice as much damage depending on how much health he has but is almost impossible to take full advantage of.[[note]]50% more if he has less than half health and 100% more if he has less than quarter health.[[note]] Haschel's defenses are fairly weak and anything he can't kill in one or two attacks normally is strong enough to knock off at least a quarter of his health at once.

Added DiffLines:

* WeirdMoon: The Moon That Never Sets. Remaining motionless in the sky day and night is the least unusual thing about it: every 108 years, it glows red to signal the birth of the Moon Child, [[spoiler:and is eventually revealed to be the body of the Virage Embryo, separated from its soul by the ancient Winglies.]]


* AbsurdlyHighLevelCap: The maximum level is only 60 but almost all experience comes from bosses[[note]]The most experience granted by any non-boss monster is 3,000 with the highest granted by a non-boss monster that isn't a MetalSlime is 2,000. Bosses from the same area grant 20,000[[/note]]. Beating every BonusBoss in the game will make you about level 43 when facing the FinalBoss. Skipping them will leave you in the upper 30s.

Added DiffLines:

* TechPoints: Leveling up Additions is accomplished by successfully using them in battle, with mastering all of a character's Additions granting them access to their most powerful one. Their Dragoon forms level up by accumulating Spirit Points, with each Addition giving a different amount of SP in balance with their general power level. Since Shana and Miranda have no Additions, their basic attack automatically pays out a greater amount of SP with each Dragoon level they gain.

Added DiffLines:

* LeakedExperience: First, experience from any encounter is split evenly between the number of active party members. Second, half of ''that'' number is distributed to anyone on bench duty.[[note]]Say Dart, Lavitz and Rose kill something that gives 30 XP. Each of them would get 10, and the rest of the party would all get 5.[[/note]] This can utterly wreck game balance if you decide to leave just one person alive in battle; the dead ones don't get anything, but the survivor and the bench-warmers will all get a lot more as a consequence.

Added DiffLines:

* SituationalSword: Haschel's strongest weapon deals more damage the lower his health is.


** The Dragoon of the Violet Dragon has [[ShockAndAwe elecricity]] based powers.

* FatBastard: ''Fruegal.'' He's first introduced killing a subordinate in a fit of rage and gave the order to raze Seles because he though just kidnapping Shana was boring.

* OneHundredAndEight: The number of species at the beginning of the world, the number of years between the appearances of the Moon Child, and the number of times the Black Monster has destroyed the Moon Child. The 108th species, by the way? [[spoiler:The God of Destruction who is meant to cleanse the world of all life.]]

* AlmostDeadGuy: Several times.
** First an unnamed villager in Seles lives just long enough to tell Dart that Shana's been taken away.
** The second time, a knight makes it to Lohan to inform the party that King Albert's been imprisoned in Hellena then dies of his injuries.

* FaceYourFears: Twice during the game. First to power the Psych Bomb, and again while battling the Moon's manifestations. Rose does not face one the first time, and Dart does not face one the second time.



* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Based on some of the flashbacks regarding [[DoomedHometown Neet]], [[spoiler:Rose]] has a healthy dose of this.

* IntrepidMerchant: The Peddler Brothers (Primero, Segundo, Tercero, and Quatro [[note]]First through fourth, respectively[[/note]]) sell their wares at Keshua Glacier and Vellweb, both of which are ridiculously out off the beaten path, especially the latter. Tercero and Quatro both question the wisdom of trying to make a living so far out of the way.

*** Though there do exist workarounds. Lloyd's instant death attack can be no sold by equiping the proper accessory. While the Grand Jewel can be countered by building up only one Dragoon level before transforming. Kongol being perfect for this as his SP level will already be low, his Dragoon addition is easier than other characters due to only being four hits instead of five, and he hits like and absolute truck in Dragoon form. Build up one level, giga-smash the Grand Jewel and transform back before it can even use the Dragon block staff. You're on your own with the Divine Dragon though.

* ToiletHumour:
** During the fight with Feyrbrand, when he uses his Stun or Poison slime attack, he appears to be literally crapping on the targeted character. May or may not be intentional, but the slime is clearly coming from somewhere south of his legs.
** A couple of Rose's Dragoon attacks seem distinctly scatological:
*** During her "Astral Blade" attack, she floats up in the air and emits a beam of golden light from her rear area.
*** "Demon's Gate" starts with Rose "dropping" several nuggets of concentrated darkness, then levitating around a black laser beam while a portal to the underworld forms between her legs.


* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Lloyd (as evil as he appears to be, he's only doing it to achieve a utopia), Rose (she became the Black Monster in order to kill the Moon Child in order to prevent the destruction of the world), and Charle (assuming she convinced Rose to become the Black Monster).]]
