Added DiffLines:

* DevelopersForesight: The last good luck charm Maeda gives Aya cannot be put into storage. There is actually a gameplay reason for this. At the final battle when Daniel gives Aya the special bullets to Maeda's gun, they replace the good luck charm in the inventory. Thus, it ensures the player will always have the space necessary to receive the bullets.

Added DiffLines:

* AbandonedHospital: Sort of. Saint Francis Hospital does have two nurses (one who leaves right away) and a patient (who also leaves) as survivors, but for the most part, everyone is either dead or gone and the music that plays when the lights go out add to the creepy atmosphere.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Counterattack}}: Some weapons will have this as a special effect, allowing you to attack back if you are hit by an enemy.


Added DiffLines:

* ItsRainingMen: [[spoiler: When Aya is seemingly unable to damage the FinalBoss, Daniel (who is watching the fight from a helicopter) takes the special bullets that Madea meant to give to her, jumps out of the chopper, throws the bullets to Aya ''while he catches on fire as he falls down'', and crashes into the freezing sea below. Somehow, he survives without a scratch.]]


Added DiffLines:

* PointOfNoReturn: Several areas in the game are closed off once you go past them in the story, so you better make sure you explored and obtained everything before moving on. This is more apparent towards the end of day 5 and the start of day 6 where the final battles take place outside of the city.


Added DiffLines:

* TouchOfDeath: The FinalBoss will crawl after Aya and slowly pick up speed. If it reaches her at any point, it will glonp her from above and instantly kill her.

* AntagonistTitle: The titular Eve is the BigBad.



* BarbieDollAnatomy: Eve's last couple of forms ([[spoiler:and the Ultimate Being's third]]) sport a distinct lack of auxiliary sexual characteristics. Whether to chalk it up to maintaining a rating below Adults Only or to the [=PS1=]'s limited rendering capability is a toss-up.
** Take a closer look at the backside of the 3rd form of the final boss. It looks like a giant ballsack hanging off the base of its phallic tail.

toss-up. However, a closer look at the backside of the [[spoiler:Ultimate Being's 3rd form of the final boss. It form]] will show what looks like a giant ballsack hanging off the base of its phallic tail.



* BeautyBrainsAndBrawn: Aya (a noted FairCop), Maeda (TheSmartGuy), and Daniel (TheBigGuy) respectively.



* BoringButPractical: Pistols. While it may be cool to have a submachinegun, rifle, or a ''grenade launcher'' as your primary weapon, the Pistol wins out because it has the quickest aim time (that is, when Aya lifts up her gun and fires). This is the only thing you cannot improve with guns.
** Pistols can become even more powerful when you mod them and/or beef up their stats once you got the items and points to do so, especially after several runs of NewGamePlus. Combine all that on top of their fast AT recharge and you got a weapon that can easily shred enemies with little effort.

* BrainyBrunette: Maeda, the AsianAndNerdy scientist from Japan, and Klamp, the BigBad's resident EvilGenius MadScientist.



* CanisMajor: The final boss of Day 3 is a mutated K-9.



* ContinuitySnarl: In regards to the BonusBoss. [[spoiler: After beating Maya, the original Eve, Aya states that her body has returned to normal before she had ever met Eve, meaning her powers were now gone. WordOfGod says this ending is the true ending that leads into the sequel. However, the sequel states that Aya willingly sealed her powers after the Manhattan Blockade Incident so that she wouldn't freak people out. The contradiction could stem from one of two things: Either the developers weren't anticipating a sequel and probably forgot about the events of the second ending from the first game when it came to making the sequel or there was a hiccup in the script's translation.]]

* ContrivedCoincidence: Where to begin? TheHero happens to attend a play which the BigBad (or rather, her LivingBodysuit) is part of. Then turns out, the BigBad's Livingbodysuit had a kidney transplant when she was young and the donor happens to be [[spoiler:TheHero's late twin sister]]. Oh, TheHero also received an eye transplant when she was young, from the same donor above. And who performed the surgery to the latter case? [[spoiler:The resident EvilGenius]]. On a slightly minor note, the OlderSidekick happens to take a glimpse at the Evilgenius' computer screen for him to see that [[spoiler:his ex-wife and child are part of a list for the EvilPlan]].



* DegradedBoss: A pair of the SewerGator that was the final boss of Day 1 can be encountered in a specific spot in the second sewer stage in Day 5 as a normal enemy.



* GiantSpider: The final boss of Day 4. You'll engage it in a {{Rooftop|Confrontation}} Battle.



* HorrorDoesntSettleForSimpleTuesday: Eve makes herself known on Christmas Eve.
* IllGirl: Melissa Pierce, the body Mitochondria Eve takes over.



* InfinityPlusOneSword: The Super Tool Kit can be used to construct one.

* InfinityPlusOneSword: HorrorDoesntSettleForSimpleTuesday: Eve makes herself known on Christmas Eve.
* IconicOutfit: Aya's LittleBlackDress, which is her most popular outfit in the entire series.

* InfinityPlusOneSword:
**
The Super Tool Kit can be used to construct one.



** You move the opposite direction from where you point the controller. This is an improvement over the spinning uselessness experienced by the enemies Aya confuses with her powers.



* KaizoTrap: After defeating the final boss of Day 4, you must evade a falling jet and then immediately fight a {{Mook}}.
* KickingAssInAllHerFinery: Aya is wearing a LittleBlackDress throughout Day 1.
* KillItWithFire: Anyone except Aya who comes close to Eve will combust to death.



* OldCopYoungCop: Daniel and Aya respectively. In fact, Daniel is a contemporary and former partner of DaChief.



* PeninsulaOfPowerLeveling: The museum is the best place for LevelGrinding as monsters there give you thousands worth of ExperiencePoints. Of course there's also the [[BonusDungeon Chrysler Building]].



* RecurringBoss: You will fight Eve four times through the game.



* SecondEpisodeIntroduction: The entire NYPD besides Aya and Daniel, Maeda, and Daniel's son Ben are all introduced throughout Day 2.



* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: Melissa Pierce, the LivingBodysuit of the BigBad, has GreenEyes and auburn hair.



* StormingTheCastle: The final act of Day 3 has Eve causing chaos in Aya's precinct by mutating the dogs and other animals there. Aya returns the favor by attacking the museum, Eve's SupervillainLair, in Day 5.



* TokenTrio: An variant. It has TheHero with MixedAncestry, the African-American OlderSidekick, and the AsianAndNerdy [[TheSmartGuy scientist]].



* TwoFirstNames: Melissa Pierce, the LivingBodysuit of the BigBad.
* TyrannosaurusRex: The final boss of the museum is a mutated one.



* UselessItem: Lampshaded by Maeda's 'charms', which he hands over to Aya throughout the game. They each fill an item slot but serve no purpose. In the finale, Maeda tries to deliver the EleventhHourSuperpower to Aya, but Daniel holds him back initially, [[CryingWolf assuming it's just more voodoo junk]].

* BagOfSpilling: Aya starts ''PEII'' with all her awesome mitochondrial powers from the first game gone; however, she has a couple of cool new ones, and can gain several more of pretty devastating power.
