* Beth - A(nother) [[ActionGirl Temple Knight]] of the Messians assigned to aid Aleph in establishing the Thousand Year Kingdom. She tells Aleph that she will be his "eternal partner"... and [[VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI the last time]] someone called you that in a [=MegaTen=] game, [[StalkerWithACrush things didn't work out so well]].

Added DiffLines:

* ToBeLawfulOrGood: A central theme. The Center leaders and later [[spoiler:YHVH]] put Aleph and Zayin through this, and while both choose good in the first case, what happens with the second case depends on who Aleph sides with.

* CrapsackWorld: Earth, AKA Malkuth. The environment is permanently polluted from a catastrophic nuclear war that happened decades ago, demons are everywhere, what might be the last human civilization on Earth is run by a bunch of sadistic, genocidal [[ChurchMilitant Church Militants]], and depending on your actions, [[spoiler:most of humanity eventually dies]].
* ClimaxBoss: [[spoiler:Uriel, Raphael, Michael, and the fake YHVH mark the end of the game's second major arc, introduces new boss music, and are the central antagonists up to that point.]]
* CloneJesus: [[spoiler:Aleph, an artificial Messiah created by the Messians after they got bored waiting for the real SecondComing. Needless to say, YHVH is pretty pissed at this]].

* MythologyGag: Daleth and Hiroko were both designed to resemble the Hero and Yuriko of ''Shin Megami Tensei I''. Hiroko's relentless chasing of Daleth while under the influence of a LovePotion is reminiscent of Yuriko's inital behavior towards the Hero.
** A lot of content was ripped straight from 'VideoGame/MegamiTenseiII' from collecting the seven pillars of Solomon to killing God who is also portrayed as a big floating head.

* NoCampaignForTheWicked: Just like previous game, Aleph's Law-Chaos alignment can be changed, but his virtue is fixed to Light

* TheChosenOne: A major theme of the game. Aleph is revealed very early on to be the Chosen One of God. Then late game happens, and [[spoiler:it's revealed that this was a lie created by the Archangels. Aleph was a mere pawn in their plot to hook everyone up to a virtual reality to bring in an artificial Thousand-Year Kingdom, which is actually Arcadia. If anything, Gimmel is the Chosen One of the Archangels, albeit a Dark Messiah. Even after all this, God does have a Chosen One...and it's not Aleph. It's Zayin, and much like Gimmel, he's a Dark Messiah due to God intending to have him become Satan and wipe out all life on Earth. On Law, while Zayin succeeds, he turns on YHVH and uses his last breath to pass on the title of Savior to Aleph]].



* DarkMessiah: Daleth. You can choose to make Aleph one of these too. To a lesser extent, [[spoiler:Gimmel for Arcadia.]]

to:

* DarkMessiah: Daleth. You can choose All four male main characters count:
** Daleth is the most obvious, even being called the False Messiah. Unlike most examples, [[spoiler:he sincerely believes he's the actual Messiah and was tricked by the Archangels and their proxies]].
** Gimmel, the leader of Arcadia, [[spoiler:is a murderous servant of the Archangels who fully cooperates in their plans
to make Aleph one plug everyone into a virtual reality]].
** Aleph, at least on Law, [[spoiler:cooperates in the annihilation
of these too. To life on Earth]].
** Zayin, Aleph's bodyguard, has
a lesser extent, [[spoiler:Gimmel for Arcadia.]]much larger role than that. [[spoiler:He's the Chosen One of YHVH, intended to become Satan and lead the Law faction in the aforementioned annihilation]].
