Added DiffLines:

* DemonOfHumanOrigin: Subverted with the Demi-Fiend. Once the world ends, you're not 100% human anymore, but you're not exactly a demon either. [[spoiler:Find the old man at the bottom of the Labyrinth, and you can play this trope straight and willingly give up the rest of your humanity.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Kagutsuchi gives one to you if you don't support a Reason. His speech during the True Demon Ending is particularly hateful.
--->'''Kagutsuchi:''' [[DemonOfHumanOrigin By casting aside your humanity,]] you became the living incarnation of bane itself.

* DePower: Subverted in the Freedom ending. [[spoiler: Judging from Lucifer's words, the main character is still very much powerful despite losing his tattoos. He says to stay strong for the upcoming day where he'll have to fight again.]]
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: If you go to the Third Kalpa chamber and talk to Black Frost with a full roster, he will remain waiting until you come back with an open spot for him. If you ''already'' have a Black Frost, though, he will get annoyed and leave. Something similar will happen if you try to recruit Samael in the Shijima path.
** For an amusing moment, [[spoiler: if you bring your own Black Frost in a NewGamePlus at the Third Kalpa, the original Black Frost will be surprised and will leave the Kalpa out of frustration, as you can see [[http://lparchive.org/Shin-Megami-Tensei-Nocturne/Update%2055/ here]].]]

* CrapsackWorld: Par for the course with MegaTen, but Nocturne makes a point to remind you constantly that everyone is unhappy and will suffer a terrible and meaningless death. The entire world is vaporized and the remnants become a demon-filled wasteland with only 4 humans still alive, yourself not included. All attempts to make something resembling a happy or peaceful life are immediately crushed, and slave labor is in use everywhere. The worst part? This is going to happen to the universe over and over, forever and ever until all free will is eradicated. The same thing is going to happen to the infinite universes bordering yours. [[spoiler: And the only way to break this cycle is to MercyKill the multiverse and attempt to fight God himself.]] Have fun!

Battles are conducted with the Press Turn system, where at the start of each round you receive a number of actions equal to the number of characters in your battle party. A normal action consumes one Press Icon, but inflicting a critical hit or attacking the enemy's weakness only consumes half a Press Icon. Thus, by attacking the enemy's weaknesses you maximize the number of turns you get in one round. Unfortunately, attacking an enemy with an element that it nullifies- or missing entirely- consumes two Press Icons, and if the enemy repels or absorbs the attack you lose all your Press Icons. This also applies in reverse; the enemy can attack your weak points to win additional actions for itself and loses actions if you defend yourself correctly. This battle system would go on to be used in ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'' and in a scaled-down form- the "One More" system- in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''.

* BishonenLine: Despite becoming a half-demon abomination, all that changes is that you have glowing tattoos all over your body and there's a horn growing out of your neck. Subverted in that, despite looking almost human, some part of you has changed enough for other characters to instantly recognize you as a demon.

* DarkIsNotEvilDarkIsNotEvil: Depending on how justified you think [[spoiler: Lucifer]] is.

You and two of your [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent high school classmates]] have gone to visit your sick teacher in hospital, only to find that [[AbandonedHospital the building is eerily deserted]].

Just as he's about to have you killed, you are rescued by the intervention of your teacher, who [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong convinces the man to let you live]] and takes you to the roof.
