* EverybodysDeadDave: The only true humans that remain after the conception are Yuko, Chiaki, Isamu, Hikawa, Hijiri [[spoiler: or not in Hijiri's case]] and the protagonist (and even then only partly). Everyone else? If they aren't turned into pure Magatsuhi, they either get reincarnated into Manikins, the Vortex World equivalent of humans, who suffer from muscle spasms and are [[spoiler:unable to make their own Reasons unlike real humans]], or they get reincarnated into Souls, the Vortex World equivalent to ghosts, who are mostly friendly but are still unable to do much, being intangible spirits. [[spoiler: At the very end of the game, all of them die too. Since you're not a human anymore, [[HumanitysWake the entire human race has died out[[.

* AkashicRecords: Implied to exist via the Amala Drums.



** You, if you choose the [[spoiler: Freedom ending. Your demon skin and horn are gone, but Lucifer lets you know that you still have some of your demonic power, and to hang onto it for the day the battle with the [[{{God}} true enemy]] begins]].



* BodyHorror: Many, many instances. [[spoiler: Chiaki and Isamu]]'s mutations are only the beginning. FridgeHorror kicks Fusion Errors into this.

* CasualHighDrop: Dante from the ''Videogame/DevilMayCry'' series has a cameo. One of his first appearances has him leaping from the top floor of the Mantra HQ skyscraper just before engaging the demifiend in battle.

You can jump off the same roof too, but you and your party member's HP is brought down to 1 when your land. Amusingly, if Dante is in your party, [[DevelopersForesight he will not take any damage from the fall]].



* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: Isamu rips you out for taking too long in saving him out of the Kabukicho Prison, making him look like an UngratefulBastard. [[spoiler: There is a DummiedOut sequence which explains Isamu's attitude - Yuko, the teacher he was fawning over, had broadcast a message for the PC to come and save her from her imprisonment at the Obelisk - this making Isamu fall into HeroicBSOD as he realizes he was little better than a nobody in the Vortex World.]]

* 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.]]

* DiscardAndDraw: How gaining new moves works after you've filled all slots. Rather frustrating to work around, since once you discard a skill, you lose it permanently, meaning you'll either need to learn how to build a character crazy fast or plan the build in advance.

** You are this to demonkind. [[spoiler: Lucifer mentions if you go for TDE that all those cast out of Heaven have been waiting for your birth and final battle against God for eons]].

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: You are set for a barrage of these by Mithra, intended to draw you to Shijima. Of course, by refusing his assertions, he loses his marbles and decides you and your demons need to die.

* VideoGame3DLeap: Unlike the previous two mainline games, ''Nocturne'' employs fully-3D environments and character models, with the result being that the demons have some of the most animated visuals in the series.

* BadAss: Although many qualify, the Demi-fiend takes the cake. ''Especially'' if you beat the Amala Labyrinth. To elaborate, this quest requires him to beat the crap out of the incarnations of Death (all ten of them, including certified badasses such as [[Franchise/DevilMayCry Dante]] or [[RaidouKuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy Raidou Kuzunoha]] [[RaidouKuzunohaVsKingAbaddon the XIVth]] in the Chronicle Edition), go (literally) into the depths of hell itself through one of the largest, most grueling dungeons known to players, beat both [[spoiler:Lucifer]]'s [[TheDragon Dragon]] Beelzebub and God's Metatron, be appointed the leader of hell's army in the final battle against God after proving his worth and last but not least, he punches out [[spoiler:Kagutsuchi]] into oblivion to boot.
** By [=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.



** And when he DOES speak (or at least leave a written message) in VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga after you beat him ([[HarderThanHard good luck with that, by the way]]), what does he say? One of the most BadAss lines ever:

* GodsNeedPrayerBadly: According to her backstory, this is what brought [[spoiler:Aradia]] into the Vortex World. [[spoiler: More accurately, Aradia was created by the prayers of a coven of witches, and genuinely wanted to bring them salvation. Due to the mechanics of the trope in the ''ShinMegamiTensei'' [[TheVerse universe]], however, she was far too weak to do that and instead wound up as an empty voice in a dying Universe where the Conception had failed to start; small gods in her situation are called "false gods" by the Lady in Black. The Lady also notes that false gods are technically forbidden, and what they do to stave off deletion - invade worlds during ''their'' Conceptions and entice others into including them into the new world so they will become "real" in that new reality. Aradia herself is noted to be the False Goddess of Freedom and the Goddess of Falsehood.]]
** [[spoiler: This doesn't necessarily make Aradia evil though. She would decidedly be a neutral, or perhaps even good, force at work, were it not for her manipulation of Yuko. Aradia just wants to be involved in the creation of the new world because it will allow her to reclaim the deity status she had before her original world failed to complete its conception properly. There aren't any downsides to this at all other than the fact that if she doesn't play a big enough part in this conception she'll die off permanently.]]
