  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: An unfortunate instance. The game was never released outside of Japan and came out before smartphones became a big thing, meaning it was designed for the old flip phone style. Coupled with the age of any phone capable of running it, online and download services for the game being long gone, the fact that each individual episode was downloaded separately (so there is no one "master file" to look for), and Square Enix never re-releasing it, and it's dubious if the game even exists anymore beyond YouTube Let's Plays.
    • In 2018, the infrastructure needed to switch between the game's episodes was shut down, meaning that it is now impossible fully play the game even if you still owned it.
    • There is now an RPGMaker English port available.
  • No Export for You: The only major title in the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII not to receive an international release. Hajime Tabata voiced an interest in remaking the game for the Nintendo 3DS but it hasn't happened. And with Tabata having left Square Enix in 2019 and VII getting a remake of its own, it likely never will.

  • What Could Have Been: The game was slated for a American release in 2006 but was pushed backed indefinitely because Western phones at the time did not meet the technical requirements needed to play the game.
  • The Wiki Rule: The Final Fantasy Wiki.
