* {{Chickification}}: This happens to Beatrice, when compared with her role in the original source material. Somewhat subverted by the fact that Beatrice doesn't become truly relevant in the poem until Purgatory and Paradise, where she serves as a new guide for the last four cantos, given that Virgil cannot go beyond the Earthly Paradise.
* ChristianityIsCatholic: Considering the poem was written about two centuries before the Reformation it's a given.

In order to turn Dante into an ActionHero who single-handedly kills every demon ever, Beatrice doesn't become truly relevant in has been reduced to a passive object of desire who gets captured by the poem until Purgatory Devil and Paradise, where she serves as a new guide for the last four cantos, given that Virgil cannot go beyond the Earthly Paradise.

* TheGhost: God himself is referenced a lot throughout the game, but he is never seen. Justified, as God is too good to visit Hell.

* FireAndBrimstoneHell: As might be expected from a game set in ''[[TropeMakers Hell]]''. Though it actually is sometimes averted.

* FireAndBrimstoneHell: As might be expected from a game set in ''[[TropeMakers Hell]]''. Though it actually to be fair its not true for the entire game: Anger and Violence are the ones that play this straight, while Limbo and Lust are dark and gloomy realms, Gluttony is sometimes averted.a visceral realm and Treachery is a icy land.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** Early on the Lust level, Cleopatra pretty much gives away Lucifer's plot while gloating to Dante that [[spoiler:Beatrice's part in this game will be so small]].
** Everytime you descend a level of Hell, you find a series of links and chains in your way that you need to break in order to go forward. [[spoiler:You hear Lucifer's laughing everytime they are broken, because you are getting a step closer in freeing him from his prison]].
** When Dante finds [[spoiler:own his mother in Hell]], she tells him that its too late for them to be saved. [[spoiler:This indicates that Dante is DeadAllAlong]].

-->'''Lucifer:''' "You are the best, Dante. Many have tried and many have failed me. Brave Ulysses, the great Alexander, Attila, Lancelot... [[spoiler:Only you possessed a soul black enough to free me.]]"

** Cleopatra, who as far as we know has stayed faithful to Marc Antony despite spending hundreds of years in Hell, is genuinely disgusted by Dante's betrayal of Beatrice.

Added DiffLines:

** Lucifer also qualifies, despite being an AdaptationalWimp at the same time (see the entry below). In the original poem, he's nothing than a gigantic, helpless idiot trapped in the Ninth Circle who barely interacts with Dante and Virgil. Here he's a much more active threat - he kickstarts the plot of the game by claiming Beatrice, delivers quite a few scornful insults about Dante's wickedness that are [[VillainHasAPoint completely correct]], and [[spoiler: concocts an elaborate BatmanGambit to free himself from the Inferno that nearly succeeds.]]
