** Nitta is a character and Shijima is a reason from [[VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne Nocturne]]. The melody that [[spoiler:Trumpeter]] plays on its horn is a segment of Metatron's battle theme from the same.

Added DiffLines:

* 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]]''.]]

* LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn: The BGM is omnipresent, even during conversations, and several characters have a tendency to speak fairly softly, meaning it's possible for them to be drowned out by the music.

* {{Badass}}
** BadassCrew: One mission will have you characters form three of these, and depending on route the Meritocracy, Egilitarian, or Fixed factions will all have one, with the route your main character is on having the most badass of them all at his beck and call.
** BadassLongcoat: Yamato and Fumi. A few characters who don't normally wear them have one at least in their possession. In fact, a LOT of characters wear these.
** ScarfOfAsskicking: And those that don't often wear these.
** WorldOfBadass: Most humans who have latent spiritual power have access to summoning demons. However, even those that don't can at least fight demons to some degree (as opposed to the first game, where non-demon summoners were boned by default and the only reason demon summoners could fight back at an equal level is because of a special [[RequiredSecondaryPowers secondary function of the summoning program]]).

** [[spoiler:BrainwashingForTheGreaterGood: Yamato's endgame plan is to convince Polaris to use this to alter the nature of mankind to match his ideal world of merit. Ronaldo, after listening in, derives his own variant of the same plan, substituting merit with equality.]]

* GamePlayAndStorySegregation: Pretty much all of the characters, if you develop fate with them, have a conversation in which they experience some sort of CharacterDevelopment, but the apparent changes do ''not'' carry into main story sequences. [[spoiler:Ronaldo and Makoto are hit particularly hard by this.]]



* LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn: The BGM is omnipresent, even during conversations, and several characters have a tendency to speak fairly softly, meaning it's possible for them to be drowned out by the music.



** DarkerAndEdgier: On the other hand, it takes much less time for the whole world to go to hell, and the sense that time is running out is much, much greater. Also, the lessened exposure to the anarchy of society breaking down is substituted by the knowledge [[spoiler:existence itself is literally under attack and its going to get a LOT worse before it gets better.]]



** IgnoredEpiphany: Unfortunately, while these scenes look more like CharacterDevelopment than [=OOC=] behavior, the apparent changes do ''not'' carry into main story sequences. [[spoiler:Ronaldo and Makoto are hit particularly hard by this.]]



* ScarfOfAsskicking: Several members of the team wear these while kicking ass and taking names, such as Daichi.



* {{Stripperiffic}}: Hinako. Lilith.

* WholePlotReference: The main plot borrows heavily from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', with a secret Japanese organization recruiting teenagers to fight a group of invading {{Eldritch Abomination}}s that threaten to cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.

* {{Expy}}:
** Many of the cast members revealed so far resemble the [[Characters/DevilSurvivor previous game's cast]] to varying degrees.
** The Septentriones have been oft compared to the [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Angels]].
** The main trio is initially quite similar to [[{{LightNovel/Durarara}} Mikado, Anri, and Masamomi]] both in looks and personality. But as the gameplay continues, only the similar appearances plays out. Unless the player chooses to make the MC answer like Mikado.
*** This is pretty funny because the character designer is SuzuhiroYasuda.
** Jungo and possibly the main character share their appearance with a previous [[VideoGame/{{Catherine}} Atlus game protagonist]]...
** Yamato doesn't really resemble any other ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTensei'' character, but his philosophy is very similar to the Yosuga Reason in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiNocturne''.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Fanservice}}: It's a world where most women are incredibly stacked and suggestively dressed. Even the most conservative outfit on a female character is entirely formfitting.

* 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 sacrificed saved their world... but only for a while.]]
