Character tropes moved to character page.
* AffablyEvil: The "more chivalrous than evil" CFW Brave. He is described as such, and offered to let Nepgear and Uni free before attacking when he found them in Endless Zone.

* AlternateUniverse: Honestly, just about everything has changed outside of the central premise. Even the world's structure and how the main characters met! * AwesomeButImpractical: Superior Angels. What it does is that it hits all enemies for 9999 for 15 times. The downside? You need all four CPU Candidates at 100 AP and have at least 100 SP. The SP gaining isn't that bad, but in a game where later enemies do a OneHitKill on you, AP gaining isn't easy as it seems. ** The [=CPUs=]' DLC CombinationAttack Guardian Force also falls for this. It's arguably stronger and has a wider range but costs more SP; basically it's more awesome but also more impractical to use. ** Just even using HDD form is already impractical to use in this series thanks to the constant SP drain. ** Neither of these are an issue in the remake.

* {{BFG}}: Uni. Even more so when she becomes Black Sister. * {{Bifauxnen}}: Kei Jinguji. * BonusBoss: Tons in the coliseum, the hardest of them being [[spoiler: Delphinus.]] * BoundAndGagged: Arfoire keeps the [=CPUs=] like this for three years. It's even the name of the trophy you get for viewing the CG image of them.

* CurbStompBattle: CFW Magic delivers it to the four goddesses at the start of the game. ** The actual fight with [[spoiler:CFW Judge]] will end this way for either you or him. He is powerful enough to wipe out most of your team in a single turn, but just before the fight, Nepgear gets an extremely powerful new processor set and a GameBreaker skill called Celestial Severance. Your CPU Candidates also receive the Superior Angels skill shortly before entering the area, another ridiculously powerful skill. And to top it all off, everyone in your party begins the fight with a full 300 SP. So the fight is pretty much a race to see who will utterly annihilate the other first.

* DuetBonding: When Neptune and Nepgear produce their IdolSinger video. * [[spoiler: EldritchAbomination: CFW Arfoire. An imperfect revival indeed.]] * EquipmentSpoiler: Trailers and screenshots sure love showing off [[spoiler: Nepgear's [[SwordOfPlotAdvancement Magic Sword]] in which you can only obtain after finishing with the Conquest End and start a NewGamePlus.]] * EvenEvilHasStandards: Linda beats feet when CFW Magic [[spoiler:starts committing genocide in Arfoire's name.]] * [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Everyone Calls Her "Underling"]]: Linda receives this label from Nepgear and company, much to her dismay. Even Pirachu keeps calling her "Underling" despite multiple demands telling him not to, and to add insult to injury, the name above the text box every time she speaks is changed from "Linda" to "Underling." * ExpositionFairy: Despite not being a sidekick, Histoire fulfills a similar role to this aside from being MissionControl. It helps that she looks like an actual fairy. * FastballSpecial: [[spoiler: Neptune gets tossed by the three goddesses towards Nepgear in one of the endings.]] * FightingYourFriend: [[spoiler:In the Conquest Ending.]]

* GameplayStorySegregation: When you get the lilac mk2 processor unit, Nepgear gets a cutscene where says she's become stronger but if you look at the stats for the lilac and lilac mk2 processor units, the lilac processor unit has higher stats than the lilac mk2. ** Fixed in the remake - the lilac mk2 set has higher total stats than the lilac set in every category except HP, SP and elemental resistance, which both sets have none of.

* GrievousHarmWithABody: One of Nepgear's Skills has her use Keiji Inafune like a blade. * HeadsIWinTailsYouLose: Even if you have your party pimped out with awesome equipment and doing fine against the first fight with CFW Magic, the game will still continue as if Nepgear and company are [[HopelessBossFight still getting owned by her.]]

However, [[SurprisinglyHappyEnding after Nepgear finishes her speech, the four goddesses turn out to be A-OK.]] ]] * HoldYourHippogriffs: Ram: "We exercised so much I could eat a horsebird. I'm starving!"

* HumongousMecha: [[http://i54.tinypic.com/2v167o0.jpg One of the main villains]], named CFW Brave.

"feeding" it and using the word on Arfoire is the point of the Conquest Ending, where where after learning about that aspect forces Nepgear to avoid using the sword and try to find an alternative, only to be forced to kill her friends and sister with it anyway.]]

* MundaneUtility: In an optional scene, the CPU Candidates encounter Neptune in HDD form and assume trouble is afoot. Neptune then says that she transformed just to meet the height requirement of an amusement ride.

* ProductPlacement: One of Rom and Ram's staves outright state they're from Manga/CardcaptorSakura instead of the usual style of loosely describing it or using a fake, but similar sounding, name.

* ShootTheShaggyDog: [[spoiler: The Conquest Ending. Nepgear feeds the demon sword by killing ''all of the other [=CPUs=]'' with it, then destroys Arfoire with the fully powered sword. Arfoire, however, seems to take being defeated quite well, all things considered...

* UnskilledButStrong: The four goddesses. To put it in a nutshell, they have very few skills despite having the best stats of the whole team. DLC fixed this by turning them all into [[GameBreaker Game Breakers]].

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Just like [[VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaReBirth1 Re;Birth1]] Gust and NISA are not present. They've been absent since ''Victory'' and were outright written out of the story here and in Re;Birth1. However, 5pb. and RED return after having received this treatment previously.

* RedundantParody: The game was supposed to be a parody of serious [[EasternRPG JRPGs]] with wacky characters, but thanks to Nepgear being the protagonist it actually became one.

* SameContentDifferentRating: A case of rating lowering from the original M to a T. Even though the game is still the same bar the voice acting. Meaning either the NISA inflated the rating because of the darker and edgier approach or the ESRB being more lenient.

Didn't know Anvilicious was YMMV.
* {{Anvilicious}}: The overall storyline of the game focuses on how piracy hurts the game industry, which would make it a simple [[AnAesop Aesop]] if it stuck to that. It becomes {{Anvilicious}} with the strawmen used in the "Chirps" and [[spoiler: when Uni is trying to convince CFW Brave that Piracy Is Wrong towards the end of Chapter 5.]]
