* NintendoHardNintendoHard: The game requires you learn the level designs and how to use the right Legion for each job, or else you'll have a very bad time.

* OminousLatinChanting: This trope is the lifeblood of the soundtrack; most of the regular stage music has a choir tucked away in the chords, doubly so when [[VariableMix you bring a legion out]]. And if, somehow, you manage to clear the stage [[SelfImposedChallenge without ever calling on them]], the boss fight song ''will'' make up for it.

to:

* OminousLatinChanting: TheNotLoveInterest: Siela for Sieg. Whatever's going on between Sieg and Arcia aside, Sieg constantly reflects on the void in his life left by Siela's departure and seems to be almost as torn up over her death as Delacroix is. In fact, [[spoiler:Siela's spirit even appears before Sieg in the finale to ensure that he's able to continue on without her or Delacroix]]. However, there are no signs that there was ever a LoveTriangle between the trio, making Sieg and Siela's bond a very strong showing of platonic, even sibling-like love.

* ShoutOut: The plot and its characters take cues from ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', with one of Delacroix's scenes playing homage to Sephiroth and the infamous [[KillItWithFire Nibelheim Incident]] from the latter. Considering that the game calls itself a "savage gothic opera," one would suppose the allusions to former were intentional.

* {{Mangst}}: Sieg's words throughout the story make it clear he's tormented by past ordeals, but his incredible display of stoicism means he openly displays (and voices) little emotion, even at his lowest point.

She is forced to pull the trigger, but misfires and clips her shoulder. She tells Sieg that she felt Delacroix's doubt and uneasiness, thus his control wavered enough for her to not blow her brains out.]]
