* NoSuchThingAsSpaceJesus: It's hard to say if Meta-God is the only real version of God who ever existed or God was just credited for creating the planet and all life on it when it was Meta-God who set it up.

The sequel, ''Shadow Hearts: Covenant'', sees [[BagOfSpilling Yuri's former powers sealed away]] by the new bad guys in town and introduces Karin Koenig as his new companion. They seek to find a cure for the Mistletoe Curse that Yuri has been afflicted with while struggling against the [[TheIlluminati Illuminati-like]] cult Sapientes Gladio, who naturally want to TakeOverTheWorld. ''Covenant'' later got an UpdatedRerelease under the name ''Shadow Hearts II: Director's Cut'' which was unfortunately never released outside of Japan. Curiously, with a little bit of [[GameShark hackwork]] you can unlock some of the English-translated Director's Cut content in PAL versions of ''Covenant''.

* PlayEveryDay: To a degree it shows up in Koudelka, only the game goes by hours played rather than days. Increasingly more useful equipment is automatically given to the party the longer the player keeps playing the game, until it finally ends with getting the Gargoyle's Claw - the most powerful weapon in the game.

Added DiffLines:

* StatSticks: This is how Koudelka treated non-missile weapons, in fact against the hidden boss [[ThatOneBoss Gargoyle]] (which guarded the sword Sacnoth), the method is to boost someone's stats: Play the long enough and you get [[GameBreaker Gargoyle's Claw]]. Equip it on someone and arrange the formation so that wielder is in front. The Gargoyle's Claw will increase the wielder's stats by huge numbers, since the Claw is breakable just have the wielder defend. The Gargoyle will keep attacking the wielder for weak damage while your other heroes keep hitting the beast until it dies.

The first two games star [[ButNotTooForeign Yuri Volte Hyuga]], part GenreSavvy badass IneffectualLoner and part [[TheFool goofy]] IdiotHero ButtMonkey who just can't get a break. He also happens to be a Harmonixer, which means that he can fuse with the souls of the {{Cosmic Horror}}s that he defeats and turn into various [[SuperpoweredEvilSide superpowered monsters]]. He would rather just coast through life beating up anyone stupid enough to give him lip, except in ''Shadow Hearts'' [[SpiritAdvisor there's a voice in his head that tells him to do stuff]] and isn't too appreciative if Yuri fails to fall in line. This leads him to rescue a young cleric named Alice Elliot, who the BigBad needs to power his DoomsdayDevice, and the plot leads on from there.

* IdiotHero: Yuri, though his boundless supply of GenreSavvy and wit counteract it very well. His ignorance is also quite justified, as due to losing both parents at an early age and being forced to fend for himself he never got a normal education.

** Also Joachim's Franchise/TheDarkTower, which has the tiny staff of Aruze causing a ruckus. The logo of the same company pops up during the Man Festival. His ultimate weapon, Nautilus, is also the name Sacnoth is known after it is taken over by Aruze. The fact that the weapon itself is a minimized submarine is also a reference to the fictional submarine captained by Nemo in two of Jules Verne's novels.[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nautilus_(Verne)]]

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Every battle track has a "Desperation" theme that plays when a character SP reaches 0 and they go berserk - even the special battle themes that play only once or twice in the game. By the time you get to them you won't likely let your SP get anywhere ''near'' zero.
