A random battle is a battle that can occur when the player crosses through Battle Locations on the world Map. These battles do not have any plot significance and can be used for leveling up, testing out new abilities or going through Intermissions.
Main article: Intermission
An Intermission occurs after certain battles (all battles in Luminous Arc) and require the player to choose a character who the protagonist will then speak with. Depending on the interaction and choices in dialogue made during intermissions the relationship of the protagonist and the character can improve unlocking unique artwork, dialogue and items.

After scenario battles short segments will appear where a Kopin will describe with accompanying images a misadventure it has had. The episodes are often short and comedic and do not have any bearing on the overall plot.
World Map Edit

The World Map is essentially the world in which the game takes place and the area in which the player has to move around. As the plot progresses more locations are unlocked including Towns, Battle Locations and more.
