* ComebackMechanic: In the manner of [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 X-Factor]], Overdrive lasts longer the less health the player using it has. Combined with the fact that the enemy cannot Burst to throw someone out of an Overdrive combo and we get some serious OneHitKill nonsense with certain characters, who can flatline average health enemies with a single low-health Overdrive combo.

* '''Izayoi''': The form that Tsubaki Yayoi takes after awakening the true power of her weapon, [[spoiler:which was originally a prototype for the Murukumo Units.]] It is referred to as "Tsubaki's true form" and is very much to Tsubaki what Mu-12 is to Noel. She uses a StanceSystem, building up her "Zero Weave" gauge in her long-range stance to power up her moves in her short-range stance.

On July 15, 2014, it was announced that a new update (simply named ''Blazblue: Chronophantasma Ver. 2.0'') would come to the Japanese Arcade Cabinents. In addition to standard balance changes for the cast, it includes an updated HUD visor, additional stages, and two more additional characters.

* '''Lambda-11''': The eleventh prime field device who debuted in Continuum Shift and served as Nu's replacement before her return. Kokonoe salvaged her in a bid to destroy Terumi, but was destroyed when she gave her life to protect Ragna, giving him her Idea Engine in the process. She was thought to be dead, but returns by as of yet an unknown method. Lambda retains her style of play from Continuum Shift, which was similar to Nu as the latter loses her mode change style to further differentiate the two. While the Murakumo units were believed to be excluded due to their fates in the previous game and their exclusion in the debut trailer, this was changed with the next announcement stating that both Nu-13 and Mu-12 are confirmed to be in the game.

* CharacterDevelopment: The game's story mode is a good source of this for most of the cast. Ragna becomes more heroic, vowing to find a way to use his Azure to protect people as opposed to using it to destroy ([[spoiler:which makes what happens to him at the end even more tragic]]), Jin is less of a {{Jerkass}} to others (even around Noel he's simmered down a bit), and Noel herself is far more confident than before, even being able to harness her Mu-12 form at will. Even Hakumen seems to have cooled down as he speaks less harshly to others, and isn't as hostile to Ragna as he was before. Carl is also shown to have made use of his cooling down by Litchi in ''CS'', and took a detour from his goal from solely saving Ada and adds "saving Litchi" to his goal list. On the other hand, Litchi's darker sides were shown more, but done without completely trampling her good side or JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope, making her development into a {{Tragic Hero}}ine clearer than it was in ''CS''. [[spoiler:The climax also opens up possible development for Bang as he received his JadeColoredGlasses by force about his idealized fantasies about Litchi and Carl...]]

* FlashbackEpisode: Some of the Six Heroes route's episodes take place in the past, before the Dark War. In ''Extend'', Kagura, Bullet and Kokonoe's extra stories, as well as Celica's arcade mode are also flashbacks.

** The Good: Kagura and Kokonoe and near anyone under the two, as well as Rachel and the rest of Six Heroes (not counting Terumi, natch). Also Carl and Bang, although the two aren't closely affiliated with them

* NoCampaignForTheWicked: Due to the altered story style; the bad guys MAY get some "focus," but you'll ''never'' fight as them in the Story Mode, so you'll never play as Hazama, Terumi, Relius, [[spoiler:pre-Izayoi]] Tsubaki, Litchi, Nu-13, Azrael, or [[spoiler:the Imperator]] (and to some extent Arakune) in the Story. However, Taokaka and Amane are also unplayable (Taokaka isn't even fought anywhere), but they're not villains.

* RevisedEnding: Like its predecessor, ''Chronophantasma Extend'' adds an extra scene after the epilogue. Ragna [[spoiler: wakes up...somewhere, with the Embryo in the sky and apparently with no memory of who he is.]]

* SoundtrackDissonance: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ysXSQiUDxY Drive Qualia]], the ending theme for the story mode, is possibly the cheeriest sounding ending theme in the series. After the PlayerPunch that is the ending (which includes [[spoiler: Ragna slowly turning into the Black Beast, Izanami creating the Embryo and Rachel saying that unless Ragna is killed off, Tsubaki has to kill her]]), it seems such a great contrast to it.

* YourDaysAreNumbered: By the end of the game, it turns out the only ones who have limited time in the world aren't just Litchi and Arakune. [[spoiler:The Beast inside Ragna is slowly devouring him from the inside and it's only a matter of time before he's completely devoured. Hakumen, after raising the bar a bit just to kill Terumi (and by the nature of time paradox of being in the same world with Jin), is slowly vanishing from existence due to overexertion of using a bit more than 20% of his power. And due to the nature of Celica being a time anomaly/Chronophantasma yanked from the past, as well as being put in a clone body that's not meant to last, she doesn't have much time to live as well. And the world itself also has limited time due to Izanami's actions.]]
