The first two games both have [[UpdatedRerelease PSP ports]], with the NA localization of the first entitled ''Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness'', and a DS port of that port, ''Disgaea DS''. Afternoon of Darkness is known for its [[AnotherSideAnotherStory Etna Mode]], a "What If" story where Etna accidentally ''kills'' Laharl, and takes over as the main character. The localization of ''Disgaea 2'' PSP is entitled ''Dark Hero Days'', complete with its own Etna Mode variant (This time telling what happened before the game started) starring the Dark Hero, Axel. The third and fourth game followed suit with PS Vita ports. ''Disgaea 3'' port was released with the new subtitle ''Absence of Detention'', which includes all the DLC from the UsefulNotes/{{PS3}} version, including Raspberyl Mode, two new characters, and four new scenarios which focus on the rest of the main cast while the ''Disgaea 4'' port, ''A Promise Revisited'', adds two new characters and a new scenario that involves Fuka and Desco travelling back in time to a war as well as all DLC released for that game. The series appears to be the beginning of a new set of PC ports of Nippon Ichi's strategy titles, currently including Disgaea's 1 and 2, and ''VideoGame/PhantomBrave''. Disgaea 5 is getting a Nintendo Switch release, with the promise of 8 new side-story scenarios.

** Disgaea 5 introduces "Sub-classing", which allows a character to not only obtain another class's evilities without needing reincarnation, when they do reincarnate, they'll get enhanced base stats depending on the classes mastered.



** Disgaea 5 introduces the ''Epic'' Tier of items, giving it glowing Azure text. However, you have to upgrade your item to reach this tier.



*** The Vita port, ''Absence of Detention'', adds four more, each covering two characters; one for Kyoko and a Asuka, one for Sapphire and Almaz, one for Salvatore and Master Big Star, and one for the new character. (This leaves Champloo the only main cast member not to receive a story)

** Its Vita port, ''A Promise Revisited'' adds in the Time Warp scenario, where Fuka and Desco get summoned back in time by newcomer Nagi Clockwork. They get to see how events played out leading up to Tyrant Val's promise with Artina.
** VideoGame/{{Disgaea5AllianceOfVengeance}} will be receiving 8 new scenarios in its Nintendo Switch port.



** In ''Disgaea 5'' [[spoiler: Void Dark launched his entire campaign and drained entire Netherworlds of their power..... all to revive his older sister, whom he killed by accident.]]



** Disgaea 5 changes up the Star element--- depending on the character, they can either resist or be weak to Star-element attacks. However, there ''still'' are NO specialists that affect the Star element. You'll have to rely on Evilities to increase damage dealt or decrease damage received.



** Now played straight again in Dimension 2 and Disgaea 5.



* {{Mon}}: You can create or capture monsters by throwing them into the base panel. (You have to weaken them first.)

to:

* {{Mon}}: You can create or capture After defeating a monster for the first time, the ability to recruit it in the Dark Assembly opens up. Afterwards, the only thing stopping you from capturing more monsters by throwing of that type via tossing it into your Base Panel is if you're strong enough to beat it into submission. (Weakening them into the base panel. (You have to weaken them first.)first can help, though later games make it so that your main character's level determines success)



** This is the hat of the Nether Noble class, of which Hoggmeiser counts as. The unique evility he has in Dimension 2 gives him extra stats based on how much money is held by the player. In Disgaea 5 you can get this evility for yourself.



** 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.

** The Nekomata could deal higher damage with their counters, and in ''Disgaea 3'' could innately counter special-attacks.



** ''Disgaea D2'' brought Sea Angels into the mix, with ''Disgaea 5'' adding the Nine-Tailed Fox Clan.



** Succubus-clan demons are implied to be descended from fallen angels as well, given their innate healing skills.

'''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).

* DarkIsNotEvil: A major plot point of the four games is the nature of demons/angels as being supposedly "absolute evil/good", nature vs nurture, etc. For example, Flonne staying with Laharl during ''Disgaea'' to prove that he can love (and thus, isn't truly evil), Rozalin becoming more upset the more of the outside world she sees, etc. 4 goes so far as to state that part of the reason demons SHOULD try to look terrifying and nightmarish is simply to scare humans into being good and creating a net gain in the universe as a service.

* AesopAmnesia: Despite the canonical good ending of the first game's implications that he's matured into a straight hero, Laharl's VisualNovel/DisgaeaInfinite appearance places his character back at his {{Tsundere}} NobleDemon stage, where he [[CardCarryingVillain strives to be evil]] despite himself. However, ''VideoGame/DisgaeaDimension2'' retains his development from the original game, for the most part.
