* NostalgiaLevel: The Devil Busters game is a recreation of the Daedelus Tower from the first game, all from a top down perspective reminiscent of [[VideoGame/DragonQuest other]] [[VideoGame/FinalFantasy1 RPGs]] of the time. After defeating the Minotaur, Pazuzu awakens and the real game starts.

Added DiffLines:

* JustifiedTutorial: The Devil Busters arcade game teaches the players the basics of the combat system, but because it's just an arcade game a GameOver results in the Friend mocking the Hero with zero other consequences.


Added DiffLines:

** A more traditional example would be [[spoiler:Pazuzu. A demon who betrayed the demons to YHVH, he starts the game sealed in the Devil Buster game.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: The game opens with the leads playing a computer game with the top down perspective of traditional [=RPGs=]. If the player decides to quit playing (or beats it), they realize that the game world is [[AfterTheEnd VERY DIFFERENT]] then the traditional medieval fantasy worlds of those games.
** TakeThatUs: The scenario, Defeat the Minotaur, is identical to [[VideoGame/MegamiTenseiI]].

''Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei II'' is, as the name suggests, the sequel to ''[[VideoGame/MegamiTensei Megami Tensei'' for the [[{{NintendoEntertainmentSystem}} Famicom]]. Despite being a direct sequel to the events of the first game, it has little to nothing to do with the original ''Literature/DigitalDevilStory'' plotline, and in fact closer resembles, and likely inspired, the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' games that followed it.

Added DiffLines:

* GameBreakingBug: Cursed weapons gradually decrease your HP, [[StuckItems can't be normally unequipped]], and must be removed by "Removing" the curse at a temple (which also unequips the weapon). If you die while holding one, and then resurrected, the "Cursed" status will be gone. The temple will not remove the curse if it isn't there, so you cannot remove the weapon ever.

* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler: The Dark Hero's death is treated as a somber event, despite him trying to kill you several times.]] Before he dies, he realizes that he was tricked by Pazusu and apologizes for getting in the Hero's way. He also mentions that the "true enemy," resides in Makai and confesses that all he wanted was to be a hero himself. In response, the Hero places the Solomon Ring on his finger and leaves.

* DisproportionateRetribution: The Friend is willing to kill the Hero (who he's probably known his whole life) and side with Pazuzu (who he's known for about a few hours) all because the Hero ends up defecting from the Messians. In other words, The Friend is willing to kill someone over a religion that they've both only just heard about.
