* BalanceBuff: ''Sengoku'' tweaked the Ninja and Saint classes; Ninja's Job Skill in ''x2'' is replaced with a new skill called Boss Killer, which gives a massive damage bonus to boss-type enemies, and the Saint's Undead Slayer skill had its effect ''doubled'' to 100% Undead kill chance at Lv. 5.


Added DiffLines:

* UnsettlingGenderReveal: In ''Sengoku'', everyone is shocked when they find out that [[spoiler:Okuni is actually male.]] Masamune even comments on this.

** NewGamePlus breaks ''Sengoku''. When Yukimura attempts to give you equipment at the beginning of the game, the game will lock up and crash.

* TomeOfEldritchLore: Much of ''Sengoku''[='=]s plot revolves around one of these, called The Book of R'lyeh (as a ShoutOut to the actual Necronomicon). [[spoiler:It was sent to Earth by Enma, the ruler of Hell, as a way to speed up the whole reincarnation process. However, a few Japanese warlords who got their hands on it were a bit smarter than she expected, and figured out that it also has the power to ''summon the gates of Hell.'' Enma figures this option also works, since if humanity dies, she doesn't have to work anymore.]]

* CripplingOverspecialization: The infamous Divine Excess/Better than Buddha Magic Circle in ''x2'' and ''Sengoku''. You can boost one character's Mana pool by '''9x''', which gives you a ton of room to slot in very powerful Artifacts and Widens. However, it only affords one character, and blocks healing outside of Angel Gate heals, so if your one Sub/Vassal falls, you're utterly screwed.

And if you think you can waltz in with a weapon with four Punish Titles, think again; the Bath-geon has the Mu-geon gimmick, in that it blocks all Title and Wall Stone effects. Good luck!

** The Lucky Seven Magic Circle is made much easier to obtain in ''Sengoku''. Once you hit 700 Fame, you'll unlock a Shady Shop item that locks the Ran-geon enemy level to Lv. 777, which guarantees that you will get the Magic Circle as long as you complete the Ran-geon.

* {{Cap}}: 999 on HP, ATK, and DEF. There are Titles that will let you break the cap, but these are typically exceedingly rare and can only be found on the higher-level Ran-geon floors.

** Hilariously, ''Sengoku'' throws you a free '''Widen''' no later than three hours into the game if you go out of the way to farm 30 Fame in the first two Chapters and EX Stages.
** In the same game, you can also pick up a decent piece of armor very early from the Shady Shop if you farm up 999 G and some Fame.

the same game, you can also pick up a decent piece of armor Armor "Myojin's 1st Work" very early in the game from the Shady Shop if you get enough Fame, and it will outclass every other armor available to you for quite some time.
*** The Shady Shop will sell you a Goddess Shield for 10000G if you
farm up 999 G enough Fame. It's decent for when you get it, but its claim to fame is that it comes with the "Angel" Title equipped, which increases Drop Rate by ''+100'' and some Fame.deletes 10 lower Titles.
*** Due to how differently it functions, you can snag and escape with nice pieces of endgame gear from the Death-geon as soon as you can unlock it if you're willing to brave its halls.



* EvenEvilHasStandards: Hilariously (and tragically) spoofed in Cladun x2. [[spoiler: After Parchmin's EvilPlan is carried out flawlessly, Death Glutton proceeds to take offense to it and... instantly kills him on the spot because he didn't like his conduct]], an act so evil it causes the main characters to defend the previously AffablyEvil villain.

** And ''Sengoku'' manages to have even ''less'' of a plot than ''x2''.



* KillEmAll: [[spoiler:In ''Sengoku'', the BigBad's grand scheme is the extinction of the human race, although for an incredibly petty reason: she found that judging human souls was taking far too long compared to how many kept stacking up, so she figured that if she killed humanity, she wouldn't have to judge souls anymore. In short, ''she got sick of her job.'']]



* LighterAndSofter: ''Sengoku''[='=]s version of Arcanus Cella is a quite happier place than in the previous games, as it's basically the feudal Japan version of the afterlife. You're initially tasked with helping souls who have lost their way reincarnate to the human world. [[spoiler:There's also the part about Hell taking over and trying to kill all of humanity later on in the game, but none of it is played too seriously, and the BigBad is a good sport.]]



* MetalSlime: Hiyokkis are birdlike creatures that are generally non-combatant and will run if attacked. Killing them nets you an enormous amount of gold, a guaranteed item drop, and tons of experience, but they have enormous amounts of health and run away extremely fast. This is saved from VideoGameCrueltyPotential by the fact that according to the flavor text they're all insufferable jerks and taunt you about the items as they're running from you.

Special mention goes to Widens in Cladun x2, which can be attacked to an Ability slot to drastically power up a character's attacks. Enemies can get them too, which can lead to effects as mild as their projectiles going faster, or as drastic as the resident [[{{Mooks}} Peons]] suddenly gaining the ability to fire massive explosive lasers out of their attacks.
