* [[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo One Game For The Price Of Four]]: Each of the individual games is full-priced, but they are all essentially the same game, with the same mechanics, setting, and characters. [[OldSaveBonus You can import saves from older games into the newer ones]] so you can continue exactly where you left off.

* CanonDiscontinuity / FanonDiscontinuity: The Liminality Easter Eggs, which is extra material from the Bonus [=DVDs=] that follow each game, have extra information of things that happen in the R1 games to give better exposition. Some parts of it have become non-canon since they weren't considered official by fans.

** In fact, the first game, Infection, has the data for almost every enemy, character, item, equipment, and area of all four games, although it's inaccessible by normal means. Some of this data was changed in the sequels, but they were indeed already there. Plus, all the four games have a huge dump file which serves the only purpose of increasing the disc size so it can fit Creator/{{Sony}}'s minimum disc size requirement for PS2 games. The four games could probably be fit in a single disc.

* NoFairCheating: InUniverse - [=CyberConnect=] tries to put a stop to Kite's obvious monkeying with the source code, afraid that he's the one responsible for all the strange things going on (and to clamp down on his use of the bracelet, which is obviously cheating). However, the bracelet actively prevents [=CCCorp=] from being able to do anything to him. Also used to keep the player from using Data Drain too much - sure, it can give you great items when used on a normal foe, but it also transforms them into a level 1 monster that gives you just 1 experience point.

Plus, overusing may cause nasty side effects like status ailments, lost EXP, or even a NonstandardGameOver.
