* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The decision to explicitly go with [[TheUnmasquedWorld an overt]] UrbanFantasy setting for the 2nd edition did ''not'' go well by a small yet vocal minority among the fans, some of which appear to still be hoping for a [[RetCon change back]].

The game's default setting has also received a major shakeup, with the assumption of a [[TabletopGame/TheWorldOfDarkness World of Darkness-like]] state in which [[{{Masquerade}} the mythical is hidden away from the public]] replaced with a more in-depth look at the [[AlternateHistory realistic implications of powerful gods and monsters existing throughout and influencing history]], both openly and behind the scenes. The modern-day World is one where pagan religions are popular and accepted, and where the mythical hides in plain sight, with tengu nests among Japan's skyscrapers and [[MemeticMutation Norwegian government troll preserves]]. [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks It goes without saying that some fans of the 1st edition were not pleased.]]

Added DiffLines:

* CoversAlwaysLie: Well, maybe not always, but the Yazata cover certainly does when it boldly declares that the book contains "new Knacks!" The only new Knack is Easy Rider, which is NPC-only (all it does is negate any Dexterity penalties that the Horsemen would have taken from being half-motorcycle).

** ''Un''fortunately, that doesn't mean good things for its pantheon adversary, the [[Myth/ChineseMythology Chinese]] CelestialBureaucracy, who'd easily crush a well-defined enemy with a well-organized force - if there was something definite to organize against.



* EvilVirtues: ''Almost'' literally named. Unlike the other gods and Scions, who have Virtues such as Honor, Expression, Duty, etc., titanspawn and the Titans have Dark Virtues - Ambition, Malice, Rapacity, and Zealotry.

Added DiffLines:

* WeAreStrugglingTogether: There are 6-11 different divine pantheons out there, all fighting a war against the Titans, but even against this singular goal, a good chunk of the pantheons can barely get along with ''themselves'', let alone each other. With individual Gods' plots, politics, agendas and rivalries often pitting [[RightHandVersusLeftHand them and their children against each other]] (and that's not counting [[FaceHeelTurn Titan-corrupted Scions]]), it's no wonder that often a Scion's biggest enemy is another Scion.

* AGodIsYou: Once you reach Legend 9. The character gets automatic upgrades to all Epic physical stats and Epic Appearance, they gain the ability to create avatars, the Boons they have access to jump in power significantly, and that's in addition to all the power they had as a Demigod.

* HeroicLineage[=/=]InTheBlood: In first edition, Scions are expected to take after their divine parents in personality as well as ability, with the writeup for each god going into specifics. Since those specifics are intended for presumably-heroic player characters, the former trope is more likely to be played up than the latter. For instance, Scions of [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Set]] are known for doing DirtyBusiness, Scions of [[Myth/AztecMythology Tezcatlipoca]] stir up controversy for a cause, and Scions of [[{{Voudoun}} Kalfu]] are likely to be DrivenToVillainy troublemakers more than actually malicious. Those fathered by Caligula, who's detailed in the WWII supplement as the reason the Greek Gods are supporting the Axis, on the other hand, are just terrible people.

** Sun Wukong takes this to extremes. Most of his kids are the results of one night stands that he never even intended on making a scion from. So when someone mentions "Hey this kids chi really feels like yours...." he ends up hastily slaping together relics and sends them on their merry way.
