* AdaptationInducedPlothole: A relatively minor one, but a plothole nonetheless. The game changes the setting to the year 1191 as opposed to the presumed 1300 of the original poem, but the developers overlooked that some Historical figures who were either still alive in that year (e.g. Saladin who lived 1137-1193 but is found in Limbo (in the animated movie) or weren't born yet (e.g. Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II is found in Heresy, but wasn't born until 1194) shouldn't be in Hell yet.

In this game, [[BigBad Lucifer plays a far more active role]] and is first seen on Earth taking Beatrice's soul before Dante has gone through the Gate of Hell. * AdaptedOut: As the original poem featured LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, not all of them could be included in the game. Some notable omitted characters from the poem include Muhammad and Ali (for the aforementioned reason under Adaptation Distillation above), Cain (despite a region of the ninth circle being named for him), and Caius Cassius, Marcus Brutus, and Judas Iscariot (who are gnawed on by Satan in the poem, though the last is referred to by way of the thirty Silver Coins that can be found throughout the game).

Like A Badass Out Of Hell is being split into new tropes.
* LikeABadassOutOfHell: Dante's mission is to plumb the depths of Hell, find Beatrice, and fight his way back out. He ''succeeds''. Sort of.

* ShoutOut: The Achievement for finding all 30 pieces of silver is "[[JesusChristSuperstar Good Old Judas]]".

* ShoutOut: SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: While the game overall retains its source material's Idealism, however it is deliberately scaled back here. One good example is that whereas Christianity is portrayed as a good influence in the Divine Comedy, here it shows that it did not have a completely beneficial effect on the Human kind by depicting the bloodshed brought about by the Crusades (including having the protagonist take part in an unprovoked killing of slaves). The Achievement for finding all 30 pieces cynicism is further dialed up in Animated Epic in which Satan gives a monologue in which he proclaims that the physical world is "Another Hell", that "humans are its demons", and that by implication of silver is "[[JesusChristSuperstar Good Old Judas]]".allowing TheEvilsOfFreeWill that GodIsEvil.

* HellIsThatNoise: Some of the background music is eerily reminiscent of the theme music from the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Shadow Temple]].

* DrivenToSuicide: Well, the [[CaptainObvious Suicides forest]]. At one point, Dante is influenced by a demonic tree and, if not quick enough to resist, kills himself.
