Two hundred years have passed since the conflict against the Schwarzchild Empire and Energi has been declining at a steady rate, threatening all life on the planet. Soon after being dispatched on his first solo mission for the Energi Guild, a junior soldier named Leon is reunited with Milfy, his childhood friend. After completing their mission, the two are chosen as personal escorts for the guildmistress and soon find themselves caught up in the new events that could change the course of the world.

  • Bad Boss: Jaguar outright kills one of his men when he's told to retreat after his second encounter.

  • Conveniently an Orphan: It's outright stated that Leon is an orphan and no mentions of his parents are made at all.

  • Distracted by the Sexy: Used by the party as a tactic to defeat the assassin, Jaguar, that attacks them in Heiland. He falls for Milfy so they tell her to flirt with him to drop his guard.

  • Dual Wielding: Leon fights with a pair of knives and hits twice per attack.
  • Duel Boss: The 4th fight against Jaguar is a one-on-one with Leon, and it's a Curb-Stomp Battle in Leon's favor.

  • Earn Your Happy Ending: After 200 years and 2 games, Ash finally earns his on the True Ending.
  • Egopolis: Lightning named the Lightning Guild after... herself.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Enah is called out to examine the artifact that Leon had brought back, but she doesn't want to right away as she's in the middle of eating lunch. When she does emerge, she has mayonnaise on her cheek.
  • Evil All Along: Baroch ends up as the final boss.

  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Like in the previous game, Enah's melee attacks are via punches while equipped with gloves or knuckles.
  • Guardian Entity: Look at Ash's battle sprite and you can see Shion's spirit behind him.
  • Guide Dang It!:
    • Unlocking Quest 78 requires having at least 1 character master his/her first 4 Break Skills and unlock the 5th (the 6th is unlocked for each character as part of the quest), but the game does not explain this nor does it really explain how new Break Skills are learned.
    • The game offers no hints on the fact that the True Ending even exists.
  • Hero of Another Story: Ash is working behind the scenes and doing what he can despite being a Death Seeker as his obligations take higher priority.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: The first battles against each of Jaguar and Ash.
  • I Work Alone: Ash's new reasoning behind his motives as he's sick of people getting hurt because of him.
  • It's All About Me: Baroch is a power seeker and joins up with whatever side will help him obtain it faster.
  • It's Not You, It's Me: Leon hides the fact that he ran away from Heiland from Milfy was because he was afraid he was going to do something to hurt her after stumbling onto an energi distortion.

  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Leon began losing memories of his past after stumbling onto an Energi Distortion near Heiland.

  • Lightning Bruiser: Jenim both hits hard and has high natural agility due to being the natural wind element character.
  • Limit Break: Break Skills.
  • The Load: Milfy feels like she's this due to being a researcher and not a soldier, but Leon assures her she's been handling her situation far better than anyone else would be. He even says, "Any other normal researcher would have wet himself several times over by now."
  • The Magic Goes Away:
    • Discussed as the team wonders why Milfy can still use her light magic with the Light Esper being "gone." Turns out she isn't dead, but just didn't show herself to the team at the Light Shrine.
    • Played straight in the normal ending as the heroes have to seal Energi away to keep it from destroying the world.
  • Multiple Endings: A Normal End and a True End, with the True End dependent on beating the Bonus Boss.
  • Name's the Same: In-Universe, Emperor Richter's first name is Wied but he's not the same Wied from the first game.
  • Nice Hat: Myu wears a white beret as part of her military-style uniform.
  • Numbered Sequels: This is the second of the Alphadia series, and its called "Alphadia 2".
  • Off-Model: In his character portrait, Baroch is tall and rugged. In his battle sprite, he looks short and chubby.
  • Recycled Soundtrack: Numerous themes from the first game are reused for this one:
    • The two games share the same title theme.
    • The sailing theme from the first game is the first overworld theme for this one.
    • The regular battle theme from the first game is this game's boss theme.
  • The Rival: Lightning to Enah, and its about as far from friendly as they can get as Lightning has hired assassins to kill Enah.
  • Sequel Hook: Enah's deteriorating condition in the True Ending.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Enah's two-fold mission since the end of the previous game: Find Ash and find a way to revive Shion.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: The party delivers a collective one to Schwarzchild's Minister when thwarting his attempted rebellion.
  • Skunk Stripe: Leon has a few blue tufts in his hair.
  • Squishy Wizard: Enah remains a powerful spellcaster with low defense from the first game.
  • Taking the Bullet: Myu is killed when intercepting a sneak attack from Jaguar aimed at Enah. She gets better, sort of.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: In-Universe, this is the reason why Myu can't stand being around Milfy as she's so "Sickeningly sweet."
  • Together in Death: Ash and Shion in the True Ending.
  • Too Awesome to Use: Several of the game's best items come in vastly limited quantities.
    • The Scout Orb eliminates Random Encounters for a set period of time, but there are only a dozen found in the game.
    • The Break Drop instantly maxes out a character's BP gauge but there are only about 20.
  • 20 Bear Asses: Numerous side quests involve collecting a set number of unique enemy drops.
  • Unfortunate Name: It's very easy to see M.I.L.F. in Milfy's name.
  • We Have Reserves: After Myu is killed by Jaguar, she's brought back by uploading her memory into one of her spare bodies.
  • Wham Line: When Leon finally learns why he lost his memories as a child.
    Ash: ...you're dead. The only reason you're standing here is because of me. When you died, your memories died with you.
  • "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue: In the True Ending.
  • White Mage: Milfy's natural element is Light and she is the only one who can learn the most powerful healing spells.
  • You Are Number 1417: Averted this time around as Enah's name rather than number is displayed in the menu. Though she does refer to herself by number when asking Ash if he remembers her.
