** The dynamic of Pyra, Mythra, and [[spoiler:Pneuma]] is similar to VisualNovel/FateStayNight. Both Sakura and Pyra are shy but act sweet to the main protagonist and they [[spoiler:experience an unfortunate amount of pain throughtout the story]], Mythra and Rin are both {{Tsundere}}s that were trained for combat and scold the protagonist for being too incompetent, and [[spoiler:Pneuma]] and Saber are both the most powerful beings that are referred to a nickname for most of the story, are confident yet polite, and [[spoiler:end up being dead by the end of the story]]. Pyra even sees Mythra as her [[spoiler:sister]].

* CatharsisFactor: There's some dark pleasure in releasing weak, unwanted, or hated blades. Hearing their pleas or [[BreakTheHaughty angry outbursts]] is just the icing on the cake.


** KOS-MOS also wields the [[InfinityPlusOneElement Light Element]] and while slightly OvershadowedByAwesome if you're using KOS-MOS on Rex (Because you already possess Mythra), KOS-MOS possesses one of the most powerful passive abilities in the game, Hyperclock which whenever KOS-MOS is at high affinity, the entire party gets reduced damage by enemies and you can do up to double the amount you were previously doing. Combine with the Crit Heal status and Healers are almost entirely un-necessary (Except for the healers below). Also KOS-MOS contains the ability to reduce the amount of Aggro build up with arts and auto-attacks. She also has an extremely high damage output that is only boosted up with Hyperclock. While Ether Cannon users have the lowest Critical Hit chance of any weapon, some of her arts hit multiple times, meaning the chance to get a Critical Hit is very high still. KOS-MOS last passive ability goes through enemy defense and increases the damage of Blade Specials to the entire party, and her H-Effect R ability restores HP by 50% to the entire party at Level 5 whenever she lands a hit. She only has 1 big flaw, [[InfinityPlusOneSword she is the rarest Blade to get in the game]].

** Mythra for her Tsundere tendencies. Is her character sufficiently-developed over the course of the story, or are her [[HenpeckedHusband interactions]] with Rex a bit too unfair?

Added DiffLines:

* FanNickname: Similar to the first game's seventh party member, aptly nicknamed Seven, [[spoiler:Blade Nia]] and [[spoiler:Pneuma]] will often be respectively called Catalyst and Coffee-with-Milk to hide their existence from new players. Catalyst is a reference to the name of their weapon, while Coffee-with-Milk to a conversation early in chapter 8.


* AwesomeButImpractical: [[Spoiler: Blade Nia]]. While they're a very solid healing blade, using them reduces the total number of Blades you can have active (making ability checks more difficult), and the fact that they're only usable on Rex (who's generally more effective as an attack-oriented character) means many players will just [[spoiler: continue to use Nia as a driver.]]

** Near the end of Chapter 10 you can access a Heart-To-Heart with KOS-MOS where Tora, Drommarch and her driver are [[spoiler: looking down over Alrest from the orbital space station, talking about how beautiful the view is.]] What turns the scene unintentionally hilarious is that [[spoiler: this is all happening while Malos is using the artifices to rain down death and destruction on Alrest. Something that the characters are just ''casually watching'']] To make it worse, if you already had KOS-MOS before reaching this point in the story, then you access this Heart-to-Heart mere ''seconds'' after the characters were saying they had to hurry to [[spoiler: stop Malos]].

** Sheba is either a DiscOneNuke with a unique design, [[IdleRich funny mannerisms]] and [[HaremSeeker outrageous character interactions]], or too expensive to acquire and develop with a [[TheScrappy personality]] that's more insulting than funny, and a [[FlatCharacter non-existent character arc]], depending on who you ask.

*** Jin is also remarkably similar to [[VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles Egil]] story-wise as both of them were once kindhearted individuals who became evil as a result of losing their homes and people close to them due to the actions of Amalthus and Zanza respectively. Both eventually have a HeelRealization over their actions and ultimately end up pulling a HeroicSacrifice to help the party stop the very being that made them evil in the first place.

Added DiffLines:

** It's possible to complete Electra's sidequest in Chapter 3 of a NewGamePlus run. Electra's "Mastery of Thunder" task progress carries over to NewGamePlus, which means that Electra can completely bypass the tasks that require her to explore much of Alrest. There's no stopping the player from proceeding with the quest without [[spoiler:Mòrag and Zeke]], as they aren't technically marked as requirements.

* EvilIsSexy: Praxis was originally a Core Crystal Hunter, and she follows MsFanservice quite well.
