** By [[MegamiTensei [=MegaTen=]]] standards, the Demi-fiend is among the most powerful entities to exist. It practically justifies [[spoiler:his [[PreviousPlayerCharacterCameo cameo]] as being an [[ThatOneBoss excruciatingly difficult]] BonusBoss]] in Digital Devil Saga and an event boss in IMAGINE.

* GodIsEvil: [[spoiler:His endless cycle of creating and destroying Earth is more or less genocide to billions and billions of humans]]. Notably, this is among the last times God is portrayed as card-carryingly evil or overly lawful in [[MegamiTensei [=MegaTen=]]]; his portrayals in games after this are a bit more sympathetic and understandable.

* InfinityPlusOneSword: The Masakados magatama. Subverts some elements in that, this being [[MegamiTensei [=MegaTen=]]], it is pretty ''damn'' useful even as late as you get it. With it on, you become TheJuggernaut stoppable only by a barrage of Almighty attacks. That having been said, Kagutsuchi and [[spoiler: Lucifer]] are still more than powerful enough to ruin your day even with Masakados equipped.

* NumberOfTheBeast: The final floor of the Tower of Kagutsuchi is the 666th floor. Beelzebub is given this number in HP when fused, per MegaTen tradition. And then there's the Tomb of Yomi in the Labyrinth of Amala's 666th basement.

** Although given the MegaTen God, AntiVillain [[VillainProtagonist Protagonist]] seems more appropriate. And to be fair, said demon is of the belief that "[[HumansAreTheRealMonsters humans are cruel]]."

* AmbiguouslyHuman: The Manikins. They are made from compound human souls and emotions, and because the Conception killed all the humans except for the Demi-Fiend, Yuko, Chiaki, Isamu, Hikawa, and Hijiri, they are more or less the Vortex World's equivalent to humanity. They have flesh and blood just like true humans, but are also made from the earth, the substance that gives life the easiest.

Like A Badass Out Of Hell is being split into new tropes.

->''Call it what you will--A revelation from {{God}}, or a curse of the [[{{Satan}} demon king]]. [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt The fact remains that our world came to an end]]. A [[TheAntichrist heretic]] called upon an [[LightIsNotGood unearthly light]], and [[FromBadToWorse devastation ensued]]. [[CrapsackWorld Chaos crawled out of the depths of the ocean, from the black abyss]]. [[KillEmAll Death upon death... nothing but death in this barren land]]. Who can we pray to? [[HellOnEarth There are only demons and fiends here]]... A voice in the dark beguiles me. "Truth is a mystery, unraveled by the candles' flames".''

Added DiffLines:
* ImperfectRitual: At one point you meet a Baphomet who is preparing a ritual to summon the demon Mara, and a pair of manekins who are pestering him to hurry up. If you side with the manekins he'll do a quickened version of the summoning ritual, causing Mara to take the form of a BlobMonster instead of his [[GagPenis true form]].

* ‹bermensch: Demi-fiend is the genuine Nietzschean version of this in every path except the bad ending. The game itself is an allegory to Nietzsche's novel [[Also Sprach Zarathustra]]. This is probably the only straight version of Nietzsche's ideal outside of the novel itself.

Trope is IUEO, and nothing sticks out as in universe.
* GoodIsBoring: Played with. As per SMT tradition, the real intent is to make you think honestly what would ''your'' choices be. ** Not to mention that if you play a good boy [[spoiler: and ignore Lucifer's offer to enter the Labyrinth, you will miss out on the chance to know the truth about the whole ordeal, including the nature of the Conception and God's goals]].

** Hikawa too. For a guy supposedly interested in creating a world of stillness and silence, he sure stirs up a lot of chaos and disorder.(e.g. causing The Conception, stirring up and participating in a war between the Mantra and his own followers, the riot at Yoyogi Park, etc.) He's also very ''passionate'' about his vision for a passionless world. [[spoiler: If you follow the Reason of Shijima, he flat-out admits that he is just the ''baptist'' of the Reason of Shijima and that the Demi-Fiend is the true creator.]]
