* LighterAndSofter: In contrast to the overall arc, the Fate events are much lighter and more comedic than in the Septentrione arc. [[spoiler:Helped by the fact that none of your party members are in danger of prematurely dying.]]

[[spoiler:Helped by the fact that none of your party members are in danger of prematurely dying.]]]] There's also no rogue demon tamers misusing Nicaea to deal with, although it's implied that plenty are still dying from trying to use the app and failing, and JP's better preparations ensure the widespread famine and rioting from the Septentrione Arc is avoided. Ronaldo's Fate events even show that many of the former rioters have pulled a HeelFaceTurn in the new timeline and are now helping protect the civilians. While the Triangulum pose a greater threat than their predecessors, and there's no predetermined path to victory as there was with Polaris, humanity is much more capable of handling the danger than it was before.

** The revelation [[spoiler:of the world having been regressed twice]] is a minor foreshadowing in the introduction! After the player has talked to both Ticos and leaves for the new world[[spoiler:, the Void is right behind the protagonist]]...
** The same revelation has another indication when the player has input the protagonist's name and chosen their Tico. Tico mentions they were worried about how things went down last time, but quickly wave it aside when asked about it and proceed with the introductiory protocol. [[spoiler:Tico is referring to how the protagonist was swallowed by the Void last time and wasn't around for the second cycle.]]
