* GodIsEvil: [[spoiler:White Clorination Syndrome is revealed to be an ultimatum to whomever is infected by the gods. If the infectee refuses, they dissolve into calcium. If they accept, they join the Legion to destroy the world. Considering these gods are the ones from ''{{VideoGame/Drakenguard}}'', this is no surprise.]]

* BulletHell: A rare appearance for this in a game that isn't a Shoot-em-Up, but rather a third-person sword-slinging game. Fortunately Nier is able to slash the magic bullets to destroy them and restore his own magic power as a bonus.

* SpoilerOpening: The opening cinematic (after Kainé's profanity laced rant) reveals, among other things, Weiss's connection with the Shadowlord, Kainé's half-Shade nature, Fyra's death, and the Twins' betrayal.

* DayOldLegend: Take your weapons to be upgraded and you get some back stories claiming that the weapon once caused an ancient tragedy.

[[spoiler:Nier is a direct sequel to one of ''Drakengard'''s (most infuriating) endings. Most, if not all, of those weapons were Caim's.]] Not to mention that Nier and the blacksmith don't create any of the weapons. You find or buy them all, the blacksmith is just improving or restoring them.

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: Most of Nier's world is based off [[FeudalFuture Medieval Europe]], however Facade seems to be influenced mainly by Mayan culture, particularly the clothing and architecture. Never mind that it's meant to be set in Japan...

To the surprise of many, a sequel to ''Nier'', titled ''Videogame/NierAutomata'', was announced at E3 2015, developed by Creator/PlatinumGames but with Taro Yoko still at the director's helm, and [[AwesomeMusic Keiichi Okabe]] on board to compose.

* LostForever: Many quests from the first half of the game become inaccessible after the TimeSkip --which is reasonable enough, since who would wait five years for his mutton to be delivered? If you accept these quests but fail to complete them before that deadline, they will be placed in a special section of your menu for quests that can no longer be completed. And since NewGamePlus places you ''after'' the TimeSkip, it means you'll have to start a whole new game in order to finish these quests.



* PermanentlyMissableContent: Many quests from the first half of the game become inaccessible after the TimeSkip -- which is reasonable enough, since who would wait five years for his mutton to be delivered?

** Played straight with the first half of the game. After you complete it, any unfinished sidequests are LostForever not just for this playthrough, but in the following NewGamePlus, too.
