* AuctionOfEvil: Arguably the Devil Auction, which is basically, well, an eBay for powerful demons to sell themselves. However, [[DarkIsNotEvil the institution itself seems neutral and humane]]. The buyers of these demons may or may not be another story.

* TheDragon: Belzaboul [[spoiler:to Lucifer]].
** He's also Belberith's dragon (as is Jezebel), but only because [[spoiler:Lucifer]] said so. Also, all the Bels are arguably this in the final fight with [[spoiler:Babel]]. Another arguable dragon would be the entire Shomonkai to "His Highness", [[spoiler: Belberith]].

* BittersweetEnding: None of the endings are 100% positive, but [[spoiler:Gin]]'s ending is the one that comes the closest to being unambiguously happy.
** [[spoiler:And even this ending comes with a disclaimer from Heaven courtesy of Metatron you still have the power of Bel, and they WILL kill you if you ever try to misuse it, otherwise, you are congratulated for your willingness to forsake said power.]]
** [[spoiler:Law and Chaos are two of the darker endings in the main game, but in Overclocked, you have the ability to make them into happier endings. The only time Chaos remains a BittersweetEnding is when you decide to kill humans instead of helping them on the eighth day.]]

** In [[UpdatedRerelease Overclocked]], the [=COMPs=] get upgraded to [[Nintendo3DS 3DSs]]. Now there's more of a reason to say that looking at the top 3D screen feels like the demons are coming out! ...Oh wait, they're coming out actually. Oops!

''Devil Survivor'' is an interesting fusion of the old with the new. The basic scenario and first-person battle system is very similar to that of ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiI'' but with the modern style and character-driven gameplay of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''. ''Devil Survivor'' is also the most player-friendly ''Shin Megami Tensei'' game yet: players can not only see a list of the demons that they can fuse and how to fuse them, but they can choose exactly what skills they inherit and even teach them new abilities. ''Don't'' take this to mean that Atlus is making the game any ''easier'', because [[NintendoHard they're not]].

** What's more, many of the physical skills inflict damage based on how much HP you have, while the skills themselves [[CastFromHitPoints require HP to use.]] Meaning the skills actually get ''less'' useful the ''more'' you use them in a battle (although Health Saver tempers this problem). Mage-type characters, of course, do not suffer from this problem. You can see why magic is so favored in this game.
*** Mages suffer from a different problem. HP can be quickly recovered through the Dia family, Charm, Affection, etc. MP is ''not'' so easily restored, so if you aren't careful about which spells you cast where (and remember that Almighty doesn't have any weaknesses to go after, meaning it can't active Extra Turn)...
*** Averted later in the game when (especially in OC where two physical strikers are a possible given the rise of Pierce+) the Pierce/Phy Amp/Phys Reflect/Multistrike(OC)/Deathbound(DS) combo is unlocked. Atsuro simply murders entire teams given Multistrike's (or Deathbound to a lesser extent, though it does more damage consistently to a single target) properties, to elaborate Pierce makes phys do full damage against all but reflect, phys amp attaches a 1.5 modifier, and Multistrike allows a physical attacker to attack each member of the opposing team 2-7 times without being penalized due to health levels, toss in Bliztkrieg for an additional modifier or even dual shadow+ and phys drain, you're looking at a character that can one round entire teams for free, whereas most mages, even Almighty spell equipped ones, are generally much slower and relegated to murdering whatever has Phys Reflect, and even then are only partially effective given the rise of Holy Strike (Almighty damage running off STR).
