** The NightmareSequence gets worse if the player talks to the various characters and finds out ''the order'' of how some of them died. [[spoiler: Hinako died first, TakingTheBullet to protect Airi. And it turns into a SenselessSacrifice, because Airi was too shocked and distraught over Hinako's death, she was the second to die. ''Then'' you learn that Jungo tried to get to Airi and save her from Arcturus' next attack, but failed. Jungo saw her die and then he was next.]]

* One of Fumi's Fate scenes involves her experimenting on Jungo, who experiences a FlowersForAlgernon moment through whatever Fumi does to the Summoning App and Jungo by extension. Jungo suddenly becomes aware, alert and erudite... Upon which Fumi tells him she needs readings from his normal state, grabs his phone and resets the app. All whilst Jungo begs her to stay her hand before narrating the return to his usual state of mind as sinking beneath a cloudy sea. This is supposed to be funny, right?

* DevilSurvivor2 deserves some kind of reward for making one of the [[spoiler:Neutral]] endings NightmareFuel.This particular ending, [[spoiler: the "Kill Polaris" one, involves killing Polaris, obviously. But there are several problems with this. All the damage that was done by the Septentriones? Never fixed. All the world that was consumed by the void? Never restored. All that's left is Tokyo and a endless sea. A sea that is probably neither drinkable nor has anything to eat in it. Humanity will simply die a slow death from malnutrition. And where there is starvation and poverty, there's usually violence to go with it. And while there are no JerkAss supernatural beings to screw with humanity, there are no benevolent ones either to help humanity. (Yes, there are good supernatural beings in ShinMegamiTensei). The only hope there is that the next guy in line for Heaven's Throne, Er Rai, will show up and fix things. This, however, is ''extremely'' unlikely. Good night, everyone!]]

* [[spoiler:Keita's death]] in the ''DevilSurvivor2'' anime. [[spoiler:Rather than getting pushed down the stairs and breaking his neck like he can die in the game, here he gets pushed down the stairs...and gets ''graphically, bloodily impaled on metal spikes!'']]

* DevilSurvivor2 easily trumps VideoGame/DevilSurvivor in sheer horror, mostly because as you play the game, [[spoiler:''more and more of the world keeps getting swallowed into NOTHINGNESS!''. This even extends to the map on the intermission screen, where you get the hellish image of more and more of Japan (implied to be the only place that had anything protecting it in the first place) is just GONE, as if it never existed.]]

* This game [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids somehow got past the ratings board with a Teen rating]] even though it has even MORE [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath onscreen deaths]] than its predecessor. One of the first scenes you see in the game is an earthquake that causes a train accident. You get to see all the crushed, bloody corpses scattered around. This includes a full-screen picture (not sprites like the corpses from the train but fully drawn art) of the main character dead and bleeding from a head injury.

** And the mystery of the NightmareSequence, the protagonit's curious absence from it, and his mysterious body condition in itself. Then it's revealed that [[spoiler:the NightmareSequence isn't a premonition, but a ''memory'': Arcturus DID kill everyone once. The protagonist isn't in the memory because ''he didn't exist in that world''. He [[TakingTheBullet protected Saiduq from Canopus's attack]] and was ''[[{{RetGone}} erased from existence]]''. Saiduq and Yamato barely managed to restore him, but then this leads us to his flickering body: that's the Triangulum attempting to destroy his existence in the Akashic Record, thereby rendering you DeaderThanDead. Only Yamato's constant interference on your behalf is keeping you from disappearing altogether, but he himself is in danger of being killed at any time by agents of Canopus. ''[[ParanoiaFuel You are in danger of being wiped from existence at any moment in time.]]'']]

* The NightmareSequence at the beginning of Wednesday in the Triangulum Arc. We are treated to a [[EverybodysDeadDave lovely shot of the majority of the playable cast dead]], having been completely destroyed by [[spoiler:Arcturus]]. Daichi's begging for someone to answer him only hammers it home just how vicious their opponent was.

** Think about that for a second. In universe, the world is being swallowed by an ever growing void. A sudden error screen gives the implication that ''the whole world has ceased to exit, down to the programming!!''
