This game provides examples of:
- Captain Ersatz: Astrian is Cloud with white hair and a longcoat
- The Dulcinea Effect: Astrian suffers from it, leading to his rescue of Lysty.
- Limit Break: Ultimate skills, which can be used after attacking and taking damage fills the gauge.
- So Long, and Thanks for All the Gear: Hopefully you didn't give Lysty any of the one-of-a-kind Summon Fragments when you went to Moon's Cocoon. If you did, they're lost because she gets Killed Off for Real.
- Throw Down the Bomblet: Taric uses grenades in addition to his fists as his normal attack.
- Too Many Belts: Belts are a prominent part of Astrian's character design.
