** The PSP and DS remake gave us the Demonhall Mirror. Like Cave of Ordeals 3 this one had 9 [[StoneWall Galactic Demons]] in a 3x3 formation. However it has ''2'' EXP +50 effect and the monsters are of higher levels and tiers. However you have to fight you way through several [[BonusBoss Bonus Bosses]] such as a powerful Serpentine Dragon, Serra Winguard, The alt. Overlord, Laharl's dad's vassals and [[VideoGame/Disgaea2CursedMemories Adell and Rozalin]] before getting to the grinding first.

It was later ported to the UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable as ''Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness'', which added several of the gameplay improvements from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'' and a brand new AlternateTimeline story called "[[AnotherSideAnotherStory Etna Mode]]" where Etna accidentally kills Laharl during the first chapter and decides to become the Overlord herself. It was also ported to the NintendoDS as ''Disgaea DS'', which removed most of the voice acting but added "[[GreekChorus Prinny Commentary]]" on most of the cutscenes. A PC port was also released on [[UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} Steam]] on 25 Februrary 2016, with higher-res art, and the content from ''Afternoon of Darkness''. The game would eventually gain a direct sequel in the form of ''VideoGame/DisgaeaD2ABrighterDarkness''.

** The Normal Ending: [[spoiler:Laharl ''kills'' Lamington in a rage and then ''does'' sacrifice himself to turn Flonne back. Etna becomes the new Overlord and Laharl apparently shows up again... as a prinny.]] Requires one or more team kills.

* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: Though none of the actual artwork changes, the voiceacting between English and Japanese gives very large differences in tone of character. Examples include Japanese Thursday being a [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter oddly-cute sounding robot]] (voiced by a woman) while English Thursday is an instant BadAss (voiced by a man). It's then inverted when taking on the Alternate Overlord in Chapter 6 (''Afternoon of Darkness''); he sounds exactly the same from huge to small in Japanese; In English, he goes from a booming voice, to a [[CrowningMomentOfFunny multiple-helium-based voice.]]

** The DefeatMeansFriendship and NotQuiteTheRightThing aspects are subverted against [[spoiler:Vulcanus]], who convinced that his goals are selfless and benevolent, but he really just wants to TakeOverTheWorld. The party tries to convince him that he's wrong and to see it their way, but he absolutely refuses.

He's never going to get it, which [[spoiler: Lamington]] knew from the start.

* WorldOfHam: And how! Just about every character indulges in some good old fashioned [[ChewingTheScenery scenery chewing]], but special mention goes to Laharl, Mid-Boss, and '''Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth!!!'''
