- Fanon: A lot of people assume that Mephisto is actually somehow related to Darksol from Shining Force.
- Nightmare Fuel: The fact that the knight, when you first fight him, closes in and attacks, rather than just shaking back and forth to attack.
- Scrappy Mechanic: The fact that your equipment still takes up inventory slots, cutting your inventory space in half when you're fully equipped.
- "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny: Suffers big time for this trope.
YMMV / Shining in the Darkness
