Nooo? (I'm not trying to be /that guy/ I'm just really confused :V)
Also this was about PC RPGs anyway.
In this segment, you have a character using a circular skill around himself and another doing a jump attack. Other examples would be most of the special attacks of the dagger throwing girl.
It's all smoke and mirrors 2D that pretends to be 3D (like Mario Kart) but the illusion and maths were good enough to appear like a 3D battleground with 3D attacks/hitboxes.
And about the other thing: my own mistake for not reading his intro ^^;;
