  • Anvilicious: Kor tends to be the one giving the rousing speeches that spell out exactly what theme the game is trying to convey at that moment, which usually boils down to, "Friendship is awesome!".

  • Complacent Gaming Syndrome: Pretty much everyone who plays R uses Chalcedony as their player character.
  • Complete Monster: Geocron Striegov is first introduced as just a typical Special Ops general under Silver. Shortly into his first appearance, however, he shows glee at torturing people, especially at whipping Kohaku Hearts. Then, when Creed Graphite resurfaced, he suddenly goes turncoat and then join forces with Creed, not caring about the latter's destructive ambition. During the next encounter, Geocron reveals that he is obsessed with collecting the Spiria Cores of living beings, taking great pleasure in seeing the suffering of those who lost their cores, one of them being Silver's daughter Lapis, and the reason why he became an Anti-Villain in the first place. In the end, he willfully Xerom-ized for nothing but power, caring about nothing but his own collection and desires.

  • Foe Yay: Chlorseraph seems to be quite fixated on Kunzite.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Clinoseraph traps Lithia in his artificial Spiria Nexus and makes her watch the day of the Calcification of Quartz over and over. Though when Lithia does escape, she's no worse for wear due to already having so much regret.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: Some feels this in regards to the altered events in R. It's either for Gall's awkward inclusion, removal of fan-favorite dialogues, or the Flanderization of some characters (mainly Kohaku's)note .
  • Tier-Induced Scrappy: Subverted. One may see Kunzite rarely getting any use in the late-game because of a majority of villains' and mooks' resistance to darkness-elemental attacks, but Kunzite's extensive combo skills make for great stunlocking in boss battles. Played straight with Ines, who only specializes in water-elemental attacks, and eats through her minuscule TP pool unless properly set up.

  • Uncanny Valley: The CG in the CG Movie edition for the original Nintendo DS, while not terrible, can be off-putting to some people. Compare the CG Movie opening to its Anime Movie counterpart.
