* Alex's actions in ''Redux'' make sense if you pick the Law or Chaos routes. [[spoiler:Wasting you and letting the Schwarzewlt consume everything would almost certainly be better than the hellholes you create in the original endings, and Alex explicitly states that she would prefer extinction to slavery under God in the Law route.]] Her actions in the Neutral route are... less sensible. [[spoiler:Alex wants to prevent the second Schwarzwelt from consuming everything. Why in blazes does she think killing the man single-handedly responsible for stopping the first Schwarzwelt will fix anything?! Logically, she would only be hastening the apocalypse, not stopping it!]]

** Also there's the fact that [[spoiler:he does return, in Shin Megami Tensei 4, and from the sounds of it the Neutral path is canon. Add that the Gaians worship Mem Aleph, the presence of a Black Samurai who wears Jack's Crew Demonica and the Cosmic Egg's true form.]]

** Meta-wise, its a gameplay element from the Etrian Odyssey games (whose engine Strange Journey uses) to make the game [[NintendoHard more frustrating]]

* According to the The Three Wise Men. In the past, the Schwarzwelt wiped out an advanced society, one populated by a similar but different race of sapient creatures. That's all well and good, but if the Schwarzwelt is older than humanity, then why are all of the demons that inhabit it based on human mythology? And what about the forces of law? Going by Metatron, YHVH defeated the mother goddesses and kept them in check. At least until him and humanity had a falling out. And the three wise men, angels working for god, seem to have been around during previous cycles. Why didn't YHVH bother to protect the previous civilisations?

* ItJustBugsMe that the game goes out of it's way to make clear the Schwarzwelt exploration team is a joint operation from everyone in the world, and yet, you can't pick your own nationality, having to set for being an [[AmericaSavesTheDay American]]. It'd be a nice detail, and not uncommon considering other SMT games add small stuff like this all the time.

** We never actually get near the fire, for all we know it's just an illusion, after all, Antlia Lower is also constantly filled with planes appearing to do bombing runs, but we never see any blasts or get hit by any of them.
