* DubNameChange: "Ecthel" to "Ein" and "Lyuri" to "Lina" are the best-known ones, but there were others--the Magi were originally known as the Goth, for instance, and the Retribution was originally called the Ark of Ruin. Cleaning up the rather Engrishy "Death-Bring Angelix" into "Grim Angels" was a rather unambiguous good move out of {{Atlus}}, though.

* BuxomIsBetter: Cierra is the largest of the girls. If Ein failed to catch her from falling off the bridge in chapter 3, Serene will save her instead, then subtley comments her jealousy when noticing how large Cierra's boobs are. Also when climbing the goddess statue in chapter 4 once reaching the statues bust, the girls comment on how "big" the statue is. Ein will look in the "ditch" (which is actually the statue's cleavage) for some hidden items, which Serene and Lina get angry for. Oddly enough, Cierra and Fia don't berate Ein for the innocent action. The vampire girls also count, as they taunt Lina for being flat.
* {{Catgirl}}: [[spoiler:Rose, in her true ending]]. Elendia's resident catgirl Mursya.

* VideoGamePerversityPotential: Yes, some of the 'jerkish' options really are more of being a pervert. And yes, being like this will ''anger'' the girls, although it can also be exploited to manipulate their relationship values in order to acquire specific endings.
