Tropes associated with Magnus:

- Magic Knight: After his class change.
- The Hero
- Visible Silence: Though he just as often doesn't know when to shut up.

Otherwise, he stays with Magnus, following him when the latter defects, eventually becoming a trusted friend.
Tropes associated with Dio:
- Chekhov's Gunman: If he leaves your party. He's assumed dead. He randomly shows up in a cutscene after a mission later on, unseen by the characters. He kills Rhade and takes his place as knight of the Central Division.
- Expy: Of Vyce from Tactics Ogre. Very similar appearance, with the same final class - which no other characters have access to.
- Face Heel Turn: If he leaves your party.
- Fantastic Racism: the target of it due to his southern origin.
- Magic Knight: Only after his class change, and still less so than most afterwards.
- The Rival

Tropes associated with Leia:
- Action Girl
- Blade on a Stick: Wields a spear.
- Blow You Away: Uses wind element spells.
- Hair of Gold
- Lady of War

- "Well Done, Son" Guy: Him and Magnus have a difficult relationship to say the least. And Akiseth is a man of few compliments.
