** Taken UpToEleven (heh) in Naoya's route, where just about your ''entire party'' is made of Eleventh Hour Rangers... because most of your regular party (except Atsuro) [[WhatTheHellHero has decided that your plan is too extreme]] [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere and ditched you.]]

* BadassAdorable: Most Fanart that shows the MC in the cloak from the Naoya ending have him far too young to pull off the badass factor the cloak would otherwise grant (getting his powers from a NintendoDS doesn't help either). Given what you have to do to get the ending however, he is not someone you want to mess with.

* DiegeticInterface: The characters use COMP devices that resemble the NintendoDS. This is a DS game. When you open the COMP menu outside of battle or look at the top screen during battles where character data is shown, this trope is in full effect.

* FreezeFrameBonus: During the period the COMP boots the Demon Summoning Program, the following text zips by too fast to read:
--> God's Righteousness Upheld
--> 3:1 Then what advantage has the Jew?
--> Or what is the value of circumcision?
--> 2 Much in every way.
--> To begin with.
--> the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God.
--> 3 What if some were unfaithful?
--> Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God?
--> 4 By no means! Let God be true though every one were a liar.
--> as it is written.
-->
--> "That you may be justified in your words,
--> and prevail when you are judged."
-->
--> 5 But if our unrighteousness serves to show
--> the righteousness of God, what shall we say?
--> That God is unrighteous to inflict wrath on us?
--> (I speak in a human way.)
--> 6 By no means! For then how could God judge the world?
--> 7 But if through my lie God's truth abounds to his glory,
--> why am I still being condemned as a sinner?
--> 8 And why not do evil that good may come?- as some people
--> slanderously charge us with saying,
--> Their condemnation is just.
-->
--> No one is Righteous.
--> 9 What then?
--> Are we Jews [1] any better off? [2]
--> No. Not at all. For we have already charged that all,
--> both Jews and Greeks, are under sin.
--> 10 As it is written:

* CassandraDidIt: When the player and Yuzu head to Aoyama and first meet Naoya and talk to him about the Laplace mail, Naoya discusses this trope and is either amazed that his cousin immediately deduces that it predicts the future or waves off an accusation towards him.

*** 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(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).

* MultipleEndings: Though the endings play out somewhat differently from the mainline ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' games, in keeping with the slightly less [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism cynical]] nature of the game. The Kingdom of Saints directly corresponds to the classic Law, but the SocialDarwinist Chaos from the main games is represented by [[spoiler: the Bad Ending]], [[spoiler: the King of Demons ending plays like Nocturne's [[RageAgainstTheHeavens True Demon ending]]]], and the Neutral endings are unique to Devil Survivor.

* AdaptationalHeroism: [[spoiler:Metatron and God]] are normally portrayed as holier-than-thou {{Knight Templar}}s, but in this game they are at least willing to give humanity a week's reprieve before coming down and taking away free will. [[spoiler:Metatron]] even lets you off with nothing more than a stern warning not to abuse your new power in the Neutral endings.

** For a more specific example, salaryman Honda wants to see his critically-wounded son undergo surgery, but said son is on the other side of the Yamanote loop, leaving Honda unable to stand by his son's side for the operation. In Yuzu's ending, [[spoiler:Honda's son dies]], plunging him past the DespairEventHorizon.

** One of the main levels on which the game works is as an absolutely ''horrific'' deconstruction of the entire concept of {{Mons}} (far beyond even what other titles in the SMT franchise do; we're talking ''Manga/{{Narutaru}}'' levels of disturbing) in that it demonstrates exactly how people running around with monsters capable of lethal force in an urban setting would ''actually'' work.

** On the humans' side, we have Izuna. Pretty decent physical attack, vitality and agility, but her magic parameter is 5 when she joins you, meaning that any demon's magic can knock her out instantly. And even at Level 99, her magic parameter barely reaches the dougle digits.

** The game has an option to skip ahead in time. This seems like a "[[PressXToDie why would you do this]] when you can do meaningful events to pass the time" mechanic, but it is possible to end up in a situation where there are no events that advance the InUniverseGameClock. In fact, the first time you end up in such a situation, the game will point out how to advance time.
