Added DiffLines:

* TripleStrikeCombo: The aptly named Triple Strike, a three-hit combo fist skill present in every Disgaea game. The actual animation of the strikes differ with each game, but each version involves two strong strikes followed by a powerful third strike that pushes the opponent back a space.

* PeningulaOfPowerLeveling: A recurring thing in every ''Disgaea'' is one or two stages with the explicit purpose of making level grinding easier. Expect them to come in the form of enemies in tightly grouped formations on Geo Panels that give an experience bonus. The best spot is usually somewhere in the Cave of Ordeals, which will have this set-up for high-powered enemies to ensure maximum gains.

* [[DownloadableContent DLC]]: ''Disgaea 3'' has several characters from previous NIS games. ''Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days'' has a handful of them available, though they are glitchy in the American version. ''Disgaea 4'' is looking to one-up the previous game by having characters from previous games, entirely new classes and even making otherwise unplayable bosses available through DLC. ''Disgaea 3'' and ''Disgaea 4'' also have alternative stories starred by secondary characters available for purchase, which rewards players with new items and even more characters. ''Disgaea 5'' for the UsefulNotes/{{PlayStation 3}} has eight such scenarios for the prior games, Makai Kingdom and La Pucelle.

** ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 5|AllianceOfVengeance}}'' defies this: the narrator is Killia.



** Annulled as of Disgaea D2; Laharl's back in the spotlight for this one, with the two girls accompanying him as usual. All three are demoted to DLC for ''Alliance of Vengeance''.



* CatGirl: You have the Felynn race, the ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'' Bandits, [[VideoGame/PrinnyCanIReallyBeTheHero Anise]], and the [[{{Stripperiffic}} Beast Tamers]]. This does NOT include [[VideoGame/PrinnyCanIReallyBeTheHero Cardamon]] because she's actually a [[PettingZooPeople fox girl.]]

* DemonLordsAndArchdevils: Each Underworld has a Demon Overlord as the DimensionLord; with [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority heavy combat]] and politicking to determine who. (There may be attempts to pass this down to children, but it's complicated.) Demon Lords are the next level down; but still have great authority.

this title may be a BraggingRightsReward in the aftergame, it has little effect on the plot for main characters.

** Disgaea 5 has only one humorous "bad" ending, but you get it from losing (or, more likely, throwing) an early-game fight. The latter three require you to lose fights after racking up a number of ally kills, but then there's [[spoiler:"Usalia's Death"]], which is the easiest bad ending to get and also the most depressing in the game.



* {{Early Bird Cameo}}: Asagi is a test character that the Creator/NipponIchi team used to test the engine for another one of their games, ''VideoGame/MakaiKingdom''. (It is rumored she was going to be the main character for ''Makai Wars'', which was canceled and possibly rerolled into ''Makai Kingdom'', but this is not confirmed.) They liked her so much that they left her in as a bonus character, a "cameo from a game that they haven't made yet" ([[DemotedToExtra or since]]). They've added her to every game since then -- including ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'' and [[VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice 3]] -- and she's become a sort of mascot for the company. She's even in the opening movie for ''Disgaea 3''.

* NonStandardGameOver: Triggered by a loss to Mid-Boss in the first game, or to Axel in the second (these also count as MultipleEndings). There are also multiple instances in the games of winning "unwinnable fights" thanks to the NewGamePlus mode. Some of these cause Nonstandard endings. In other instances, these are caused by the hero having too many Ally kills, which allows unusual plot choices that end the game (refusing to show mercy where in the "real" plot you do, for example).

** Disgaea 5 does this with Overloads, the unique abilities that Overlord characters have. Seraphina, Red Magnus, and Christo all start with theirs, but gain an upgrade to them during the story. Killia, Usalia, and Zeroken start with none, but eventually earn them. In each case, earning or upgrading your Overload is caused by CharacterDevelopment.

** Disgaea 5 changes this up again. Now there are scrolls that can be obtained either from breaking Bottlemails open or by choosing the option in the Chara World to have a skill or evility copied down. They can be used by anyone, though certain skill scrolls have to be purchased in a random Chara World event (these are the extra weapon skills for humanoids). There is also a squad that lets the members utilize the skills of the leader, though much like the above examples, they'll have to level the skill up to learn it permanently.

---'''Christo''': This is worse than a sweatshop. We have just witnessed the birth of a sweatconglomerate.
** On the other hand, even if Valvatorez is done with you, count your lucky stars if you get sent to Toto Bunny. The Overlords there treat their Prinnies with care and respect, and the Prinnies [[TookALevelInBadass pay it back in kind]].

''Disgaea'' is a series of TurnBasedStrategy games created by Creator/NipponIchi ({{Atlus}} published the first game in America, since Nippon Ichi didn't have an American division at the time).

All the games are highly regarded by enthusiasts of TurnBasedStrategy games for their twisted humor and myriad ways to [[EliteTweak customize and level up characters and equipment]]. Oh, and the Prinnies are so cute too, dood!

* CharacterExaggeration: Arguable. But it's a general rule that any character that makes a cameo appearance outside of their debut game will be greatly exaggerated. For example, [[spoiler: When Laharl shows up in D2, he seems to have forgotten all of his character development at the end of the first game. Flonne's later appearances, particularly D4, dial-up her otaku-ness and make her much more of an airhead than she originally was. Mao's appearances in ''Disgaea Infinite'' and ''Disgaea 4'' also has he seemingly forget his character development and also portrays him as much more of a pervert. Among other examples.]]
