* {{Foreshadowing}}
** 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.]]

[[folder:Triangulum Arc]]

* AmazingTechnicolorBattlefield: The final boss battle [[spoiler:has multiple ones, but special mention goes to the final one where you are practically floating above a universe made out of blue glowing shards of light]].
* ArbitraryHeadcountLimit: Normally, [[spoiler:every scene in the game has two character portraits talking to each other...except one of Fumi's Fate events where you can see three at once]], all in the name of RuleOfFunny.
* BagOfSpilling: At the start of the arc, the party members are about level 20, which is at least 30 to 40 levels lower than they used to be at the end of the Sept. Arc. Daichi specifically notes feeling weaker compared to when they fought Polaris. Possibly averted with your demons, skill library and unlocked auction levels, as these can be carried over when you start the Triangulum Arc as part of NewGamePlus.
* BigBad: The Triangulum, whose leader is Arcturus. [[spoiler:Then you find out there's an even greater force behind them that will continue to make the same thing happen again and again]].
* BizarreAlienBiology: [[spoiler:Cor Caroli's main body. It's two faceless female ''naked'' bodies on top of each other, and one of them has Miyako's hair]].
* BonusBoss: Through the rewards' menu, [[spoiler:both Ticos]] serve as one in a NewGamePlus of Triangulum. They are both fought several times during the battle.
* BrickJoke ''and'' CallBack: This arc is positively ''brimming'' with these in regards to the original Septentrione Arc, particularly in [[LevelUpAtIntimacyFive Fate Events]]. There's [[HilarityEnsues plenty of fun]] to be had in this UpdatedRerelease[[note]]Like {{Troll}}ing [[CoolBigSis Makoto]] by [[AccidentalPervert calling her a pervert]] when she visits in the morning, or Io executing [[CrowningMommentOfFunny/DevilSurvivor2 Operation:]] ''[[EpicFail Return of the]] [[ShoutOut Cardboard]] [[VideoGame/MetalGear Box!]]''[[/note]], but there's also some more serious elements recalled[[note]]Like [[{{Expy}} noting the similarities between]] [[WolfPackBoss Spica and Megrez]], or [[{{Deconstruction}} expanding on the actual outcomes of what the original endings really entailed]].[[/note]]
* CassandraTruth: The Protagonist is initially the only one who remembers everything about the previous world and knows what happened. His prior knowledge clashes hard against the rest of the party who don't recall anything and don't believe him until he makes them remember.
* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler:This happens to the Protagonist]] to deal with Spica before it manages to reach the Sky Tower through the sea. The party summons Aramisaki to create a barrier to block its way. However, the possession is completely intentional and even [[spoiler:allows you to ''flirt'' with the demon possessing the MC!]]
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:Sorry, bucko. Defeating Arcturus is not the end yet]].
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Everyone but the Protagonist start having a strange dream where they are all killed by Arcturus on the third day. Once said day comes, [[spoiler:it's revealed that it had already happened in a second world]].
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Technically, most of the main characters' dreams in the previous world are met here: Io is outspoken, Airi becomes a pianist and is able to make an idol group with Hinako, {{Tsundere}} Keita is close friends with Jungo, and Makoto was able to continue her dream as a synchronized swimmer [[spoiler:though she willingly turned it down to join JP's]].
* EldritchAbomination: The Triangulum. Then there's [[spoiler:Miyako in her Cor Caroli guise who looks like two faceless female bodies on top of each other and surrounded by black-and-yellow striped panels with large lady hands]], not to mention [[spoiler:Canopus and its various parts]].
* EleventhHourSuperpower: [[spoiler:The Prime Factors massively improve the party's abilities just in time for the final showdown with Canopus. Heat boosts elemental damage, Gravity boosts Physical damage, Time boosts Almighty and Curse damage, and Space adds ''4'' to everyone's movement range.]]
* EverybodysDeadDave: [[spoiler:The nightmare sequence at the start of Wednesday concerning the aftermath of the battle against Arcturus. Only Yamato barely manages to survive thanks to Al Saiduq's intervention.]]
* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: [[spoiler:Al Saiduq tinkers with the Skill Crack ability to get skills from others to be able to take a hold of Canopus' four factors]].
* TheGhost: Er Rai is frequently talked about as the next Administrator after the Triangulum, but you never get to see him. [[spoiler:It is hinted that he causes the world's destruction after the sacrificial method is chosen]].
* HappyEndingOverride: After saving the world from being deleted at the hands of a group of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s... the world is once again being threatened with deletion at the hands of ''another'' group of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s.
* HeadbuttingHeroes: Airi and Hinako are still prone to doing this even after becoming an idol group, [[{{Irony}} though they both admit they are deathly honest with each other because that will always yield them good results]].
* HereWeGoAgain: [[spoiler:And one ending takes this to ForeverWar levels]].
* IdolSinger: Ironically enough, Airi and Hinako end up forming a successful idol group known as [=AiHina=]☆☆ ([[LuckyCharmsTitle pronounced "stars"]]) in this world. Daichi, before regaining his memories, is a total {{Fanboy}} of them.
* InSpiteOfANail: Despite all of the changes to the timeline, the third day of the crisis still ends with Ronaldo storming the Nagoya JP's branch. [[spoiler:This time, however, you're on his side.]]
* InterfaceSpoiler: [[spoiler:Despite Miyako's repeated statements that Alcor and Yamato don't exist, the Fate menu shows two empty spots that aren't filled out after you gather everyone else]].
* ItsPronouncedTroPAY: An early conversation with Daichi makes the Protagonist say the website Nicaea as "Nikaya", which is surely a reference to how players used to pronounce the website's name without a clear audible example.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: The characters lose their memories of the previous world after being reborn in the new one. They vaguely recall events or have deja vu until something important enough happens that makes them remember.
* LighterAndSofter: Many of the Fate routes are funner and sillier than they were in the previous world, [[MoodWhiplash though some of them have the occasional dip in mood]].
* LovecraftLite: [[spoiler:As it turns out, defeating Polaris caused the ''mind of the universe itself'' to decide humanity was an unacceptable error and start spawning new Administrators to invade, [[KillAllHumans eliminate the problem]], and take over...and in all endings, humanity fights off his legions and resets ''twice'', with all but two endings actually resulting in he himself having to withdraw, and in the Record Breaker ending that's because humanity effectively ''[[KillTheGod ate him]]''.]]

** At the start of Wednesday, Miyako visits the protagonist in his room, supposedly to tell him about how the search for his friends goes. She ends the conversation by staring at his face at a quite close distance [[spoiler:to make sure there are no "irregularities"]] and he has the option of staring back ([[TheGadfly or blowing in her face]]). Daichi and Io promptly walk in on them. The protagonist can either tell the truth, that she was simply reporting something to him, [[{{Troll}} or confirm Daichi and Io's fears that Miyako spent the night in his room]].
** During one of Fumi's fate events, she tries to experiment on the protagonist and he has the option of letting her take his clothes off. Fumi being Fumi, she sees no objections and she sits on his lap, trying to figure out how to take his jacket off. Again, that's when Daichi and Io enter the scene.
* OffModel: Although Miyako was designed by the same artist, her in-game artwork displays thicker outlines than the rest of the characters who have thinner outlines.
* OrderVersusChaos: Order being represented by the Admins, Swords, and the Divine Order of the Universe, with humanity and Alcor as Chaos.
* PlotArmor: Unlike the previous arc, it is quite impossible for any of the characters to permanently die as there are no events that require you to be there immediately to prevent deaths. This is pure FridgeBrilliance because [[spoiler:Miyako wants to force the party to avoid confrontations that may kill them and jeopardize her plan to use them all as sacrifices to fix the problem with the Heavenly Throne]].
* {{Retcon}}
** The arc starts with a combination of two endings that are physically impossible to obtain in the previous arc.
** The world regression results in this on a mass scale that shows that the characters have truly developed to the point that their own history has changed. Koharu's parents live, Makoto avoids the accident that destroyed her career in swimming, Io has been friends with Daichi and the protagonist for a long time, etc. Things have changed so much for the better that it shows that the current threat is not the result of humanity being stagnant.
* RetGone: Yamato has completely disappeared from existence in this arc's world, though the main party still remembers him and try to find out if he's still alive somewhere. [[spoiler:He is, except he's not in their world]].
* RunningGag: The Protagonist's choice to insist Miyako is Yamato wearing a drag.
* TheReveal: Those [[DyingDream dying dreams]] everyone but the Protagonist have had? [[spoiler:It's not quite prophetic, but it's actually a dream of a ''second'' world previous to the one the arc starts at. It reveals the world had been regressed twice, not once]]. For that matter, the reason why the Protagonist isn't in them is because [[spoiler:he performed a HeroicSacrifice between the first and second worlds when Arcturus tried to consume Al Saiduq into the Void. His absence in the second world was what allowed Arcturus to exterminate everyone]].
** Why does Miyako but not Yamato exist? [[spoiler:The truth is that Miyako is an alien replacement for Yamato in the third world while he himself is hiding and working at a higher plane of existence to keep the Protagonist alive by fixing his data]].
* RuleSixtyThree: With Yamato gone from existence, the Protagonist can ask Miyako multiple times if she's Yamato wearing a drag.
* PuttingTheBandBackTogether: Much of the earlygame concerns the cast recovering their memories and rejoining the fight against the latest invaders, the Triangulum.
* ShoutOut: Daichi playing a game called "Evil Beater" on a device that looks like a [=3DS=]. The logo of the game, when looked from afar, resembles ''Devil Survivor Overclocked'''s title logo.
* SenselessSacrifice: [[spoiler:If the player chooses to go along with Miyako's plan of sacrificing everyone, the ending shows that it is pointless. While the world is saved and Alcor becomes the new Administrator, he ''has'' to step down for the next Administrator, who decides to have the Void consume earth again because of humanity having no potential to progress. Sure, the party's sacrifice saved their world... but only for a while.]]
* SingleTargetSexuality: Upon Miyako's introduction, Daichi can hardly stop thinking about her over another female party member. He doesn't even mind if she berates him and admits he likes this side of him.
* ThreeAmigos: The main character, Daichi, and Io are this in the Triangulum world, having been friends with each other for a very long time.
* TotalPartyKill: [[spoiler:In the second world, Arcturus utterly annihilates the entire party sans the Protagonist (who saved Al Saiduq from being consumed by the Void between worlds), and Al Saiduq who saved Yamato in time to regress everything a second time]].
* TheUnfought: [[spoiler:Canopus in case you agree with Miyako to sacrifice the whole party]].
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Nobody acts strangely around the violet policeman with pointed ears, but this is a world where government agents can summon demons.
* WhatTheHellHero:
** In case you ever start this arc with the NewGamePlus benefit of importing a full deck of demons, the initial demons will complain to you about it. Dionysus especially feels emotionally hurt ([[KickTheDog which is made even more insulting to him if he happens to be the only one not allowed in]]).
-->'''Dionysus''': Aw... This really hurts. I mean, this cuts deep. *sigh* I suppose I'll just go then. I know when I'm not needed.
** If you agree to Miyako's proposition that [[spoiler:you all sacrifice yourselves to turn Alcor into an Administrator, Yamato]] will give you a rather brief one before going along with it.
** The protagonist can call Miyako on [[spoiler:eradicating Aramisaki in one blow]]. Exactly why she did that at all is not explained and comes across as jerkish.
* WistfulAmnesia: [[spoiler:In the Guardian ending the Protagonist, as the new Administrator, restores the world but erases his friends' memories of him, leading to Daichi, true to this trope's form, thinking he's forgotten something important when he and Io graduate from high school.]]
* ZergRush: Not the phones gone berserk that call demons endlessly, but special mention goes to the one mission where [[spoiler:an endless stream of JP's agents at the planetarium]] will continue to hunt you down until you make a gateway for the whole team.

** The [[EverybodysDeadDave nightmares]] that everyone, except the protagonist, keep having are thought to be a strange sense of premonition that they'll lose to Arcturus. [[spoiler:Those are actually ''memories'' from the world's previous cycle. After defeating Polaris, the world was regressed and the Triangulum attacked. When it was Arcturus' turn, it managed to kill most of the
party sans before it was defeated, but the Protagonist (who saved world was too damaged and ravaged to continue on, so Al Saiduq regressed the world again to give them another chance.]]

Al Saiduq who saved Yamato in time into a proper Adminstrator and keep the world from being consumed by the Void, it turns out to regress be a temporary solution, since Al Saiduq ''has'' to step down when the next Adminstrator's turn comes up.
