** The protagonists will be affected by a disaster involving [[spoiler:the technology they use failing]], and as such need to [[spoiler:equip Zero Field Generators in order to use arts. Tita in particular ''needs a ZFG'', as the only weapon she has that doesn't use orbal power is the [[GatlingGood Gatling gun]] she uses in one of her S-Crafts.]]
** One sidequest involves rescuing miners trapped by their elevator failing due to [[spoiler:the Orbal Shutdown Phenomenon]], Tita restoring the elevator's functionality using [[spoiler:a Zero Field Generator]]. However, as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhIcr4N60TY&t=1020 one LPer pointed out]], just because the elevator now works doesn't necessarily mean it works ''properly''. The [[spoiler:ZFG]] doesn't restore full power to the orbment, meaning the elevator's movement is pretty much start suddenly and stop just as suddenly, over and over again, until it reaches the top or bottom, resulting in a horrible stomach-churning journey in and out of the lower level.



** In the final chapter, [[spoiler:Josette]] (who unfortunately suffers from LateCharacterSyndrome) is required to be in the party for a dungeon, but can be replaced before TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon.
