What in-game retailer bonuses are available for Final Fantasy XIII-2?

I’d like to be able to acquire the bonuses on the after-market to sate the completionist in me but Square-Enix has decided to add in-game pre-order bonuses and other retailer incentives for Final Fantasy XIII-2, and I’m having trouble keeping track of them all.

What retailer bonuses are available that can only be acquired by bonus/redemption codes (like pre-orders)?

  • What are the different monster attributes?
  • Do ATB upgrades affect the overall charge time?
  • Is it possible to screw up the Crystarium?
  • What effect do monster companions have on target time?
  • What happens when I close a gate?
  • What do the icons on the Historia Crux represent?
  • What are the available bonuses in the extras menu?
  • Why was Caius supposed to be immortal?
  • Are there any missable/limited recruitable monsters?
  • What are the different monster attributes?
  • Where are some good places to grind CP?
  • Is it possible to screw up the Crystarium?
