* ''ShinMegamiTensei - [[LighterAndSofter Demikids]]'' has your starter {{Mon}}. The very first monster you get, and your partner for the entire game, only gains levels by absorbing other monster's exp through fusion. Taking into account that you'll likely need most of your other monsters for fusion, you'll usually end up just mass fusing dozens of cheap monsters to get your starter to level up. To put it differently: This is like getting a [[{{Pokemon}} Pikachu]] that has to devour its opponent every time it wins a battle. By the end of the game, your starter is essentially a walking mass of hundreds of souls.

* After defeating Ravana in SMT 1, he bemoans the fact that the one who defeated him wasn't an avatar or a demon, but a BadassNormal human. [[spoiler: The main character is implied to be the reincarnation of Adam. In comparison to Nakajima being the god Izanagi, Adam was just a human, and his name literally means man.]]

** Inanna. Moreso in the original concept art, but there are a lot of details. According to the various versions of [Literature/InannasDescentToTheNetherworld]], Inanna was wearing seven of the following: wig, crown, turban, ring, beads, lapis lazuli necklace and measuring rod, girdle, mascara, bangles, dress, and earrings. In the final version, while some are harder to see than others, she's wearing the wig, turban/crown, earrings, bangles, necklace, and her boobs might just be beads. Previous versions had even more of the above. The decorative piece on top looks a lot like a female sign, which is also a sign of Venus. Venus is not only a love goddess like Inanna, Inanna was also represented by the planet Venus.

* After defeating Ravana in SMT 1 (might be Vishnu, I might be remembering wrong), he bemoans the fact that the one who defeated him wasn't an avatar or a demon, but a BadassNormal human. [[spoiler: The main character is implied to be the reincarnation of Adam. In comparison to Nakajima being the god Izanagi, Adam was just a human, and his name literally means man.]]
* According to a guidebook for the first game, demons that repel physical attacks do so by making an illusion that their opponent is attacking the demon when they're actually attacking themselves. This is why the Demi Fiend's Pierce ability doesn't let him attack physical repelling demons. Pierce gives all his physical attacks an ArmorPiercingAttack quality. It doesn't do anything about illusions.

* The Demi Fiend's Javelin Rain features him using a RoundhouseKick to throw lasers. This isn't without precedent; the Gae Bolg, of Celtic fame, was a spear that had to be thrown from the foot.

** At first, it's weird seeing how Angel - a ''Divine being'' - is dressed in the series. It makes sense once you notice that she also wears a leash. After all, they are guardian angels that are ''bound'' to a human being on birth. They are also blindfolded, which is ironic as 'angel' means 'watcher'.

* The ending of Persona 2: Innocent Sin, is similar to the plot of Nocturne. In Innocent Sin, [[spoiler: Maya's death triggers the end of the world, and then the four remaining heroes create a new world where everything went well for them.]] In Nocturne, the Conception requires someone with a powerful demonic sponsor, a lot of Magatsuhi, and a Reason. In Innocent Sin, [[spoiler: Philemon was the sponsor, the protagonists produced Magatsuhi from the pain of losing Maya, and their Reason was to make a better world]].
