Aleph is set to work by the Center eradicating demons in preparation for the Thousand Year Kingdom, but as he fights he bears witness to the various tragedies brought about by the Center's rule, eventually learning that the Thousand Year Kingdom [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans necessitates the complete genocide of everyone outside of the Center]]. But then again, the alternative is allowing the last bastion of human life to be over-run by demons. Should Aleph [[YouCantFightFate fulfil his destiny]] and become the Thousand Year Kingdom's champion, or should he [[ScrewDestiny turn to the other side]] and bring down Tokyo Millennium?

Millennium? And for that matter... what would doing so truly entail?

Added DiffLines:

* WalkingSpoiler: A few, but two take the cake:
** [[spoiler:Zayin actually is a major character in the game and not an Advertised Extra. He stands against the Archangels and later becomes Satan, YHVH's representative in the Law faction, making him the Big Bad along with Lucifer for a good portion of the game. His actions on the Law route further the spoilers, as he manages to turn on YHVH]].
** [[spoiler:YHVH is really, really evil. Lucifer's interpretation of Him is dead-on, and as a result of the Archangels' actions and not everyone worshipping Him, He intends to kill everyone not willing to give up free will]].

* ArchEnemy: Satan and Lucifer despise each other - the reason the latter wanted to meet Aleph after he [[spoiler:killed the Center leaders]] was to make sure he wasn't Satan, and Lucifer's initial goals are to stop Satan's revival. [[spoiler:He fails, and Zayin becomes Satan]].



* EvilVersusEvil: Law vs Chaos again, though downplayed - Law's clearly more evil than Chaos this time, and the initial villains are most definitely Law aligned. While Lucifer is still a WellIntentionedExtremist, he leans heavily towards the Well Intentioned side of it. Further downplaying it is [[spoiler:YHVH managing to disgust Satan on the Law route to the point where Satan betrays Him]].



* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:Zayin, upon discovering his true nature as Satan]]. Lucifer also has three forms, though you only get to fight one.
* OrderVersusChaos: Though it's less "Messiah vs Gaia" like in the previous game as it is "Satan vs Lucifer".

form, the latter of which is his boss form. In addition, Beelzebub's giant fly form debuts in this game as the form he takes as the ultimate boss. There's one more major example: [[spoiler:Zayin. After fusing with Seth, he gains glowing eyes and a massive makeover as he becomes Satan. On Neutral and Chaos, he becomes an Eldritch Abomination]].
* OrderVersusChaos: Though it's less "Messiah vs Gaia" like in the previous game as it is "Satan and YHVH vs Lucifer".

* KillEmAll: [[spoiler:YHVH's solution to everything, regardless of your alignment. On Law, not only does this actually happen, but YHVH and Satan die soon after, leaving only Aleph, Hiroko, and Gabriel as te only named characters alive]].
