Added DiffLines:

* GodzillaThreshold: Kushinada's Lynchpin is a device that disrupts seithr on a global scale, and Houyoku: Rettenjou is the Nox Nyctores designed to activate it. Lord Tenjou refused to activate the Lynchpin during the Ikaruga Civil War, however, because the world had become dependent on seithr-fueled ars magus to function. By the end of the story, [[spoiler:Relius had rigged every cauldron in the world to vomit ridiculous concentrations of seithr, which resulted in casualties the world over with every lost soul being dragged into the Ibukido monolith as a means to summon Master Unit: Amaterasu, which made activating the Lynchpin mandatory, and in some ways preferable to allowing this Doomsday to continue.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DivergentCharacterEvolution: Happens to Nu and Lambda when the latter is added in ''CPEX''. It is made clear that Nu is going for long range attacks and more defensive approach while Lambda is made for rushing down, with her swords having shorter reach than Nu's.

* BittersweetEnding: A lot more on the bitter side this time around however [[spoiler: Kagura's coup is successful and he's able to get the rightful heir, Homura, onto the throne. Terumi is slain by Hakumen, Tsubaki reconciles with Jin, Noel, and Makoto and joins with the heroes, and the Master Unit is successfully defended from being destroyed. However, Izanami shows up and forces Ragna's grimoire to go out of control and makes him attack everyone in the vicinity, critically injuring both Jin & Noel. Relius is still at large and Carl and Litchi have betrayed Bang to join forces with him, and Hazama & Trinity may be dead. Additionally, Izanami plans on using humanity as a sacrifice to complete the "true" Blazblue and use its power to destroy the Master Unit.]]
* BreakMeter: The Barrier can be used to block attacks without the pesky ScratchDamage. It depletes a meter, however; once it is empty, your defense worsens until the meter regenerates back to half-full.

* DarkestHour: Let's just say this game ends at the series` lowest point, see BittersweetEnding above for why.

* DarkestHour: Let's just say this game ends at DiabolusExMachina: This contributes to the series` lowest point, see BittersweetEnding above above. Also, there's Ragna's encounter with Nu in both his Arcade and Ep. 7 where, for why.once, he manages to hold his own against her (while previously it always ends in a hug.exe), but the Imperator uses Phenomenon Intervention to jam Ragna's Azure Grimoire to make sure she doesn't lose Nu on the spot. Thankfully, DeusExMachina occurs right after in form of Amaterasu resetting time, pulling Ragna back to when she parted ways with Taokaka.

* 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.



* VisualPun: One cover for the game depicts Noel, Rachel and Celica sitting together. [[spoiler:They're all "Chronophantasmas".]]

** In fairness Terumi and Hazama were always separate entities it's just that Hazama was made to be the SoulJar for Terumi It's how they were seperated that was the real surprise.

* '''Yuuki Terumi''': The true identity of Hazama, our resident {{Troll}}, taking his form during the Dark War as seen in flashbacks and the ''Phase Shift 1'' novel. Possesses a different Drive than Hazama, and is heavily meter-reliant like Akuma of ''Franchise/StreetFighter''. He is [[DownloadableContent a pre-order DLC bonus]].

* 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...]]
