Players will be able to choose between the two old factions and the third new one: Avalon, {{Knight Templar}}s who seek to destroy all monsters, no exceptions; Sanctuarium, a splinter group of sorcerers who believe that monsters can and should be saved; and the new faction the Order of Grim, a cult started by a sorcerer who noticed the EternalRecurrence of the Twin Gods' feud and who's followers bring hope to both sorcerers and non-sorcerers alike, in hope of somehow ending the vicious cycle. Which organization the player chooses to join will change what mission rewards and types of magic they can gain.

* AxCrazy: Sortiara [[spoiler:ends up being a {{Deconstruction}}.]]
* BecomingTheMask: When sorcerers sacrifice monsters, they absorb the souls of those monsters. In process, they also gain emotions and memories of those whom they sacrificed. As a result, sorcerers start losing their sense of self.
* BeingGoodSucks: You're told outright from the very beginning that Avalon considers the Rite of Salvation to be an act of heresy, and those who use it too much risk suffering "serious consequences". These consequences include reduced quest rewards, getting yourself crippled while simultaneously giving the boss a free power up, and, eventually, [[spoiler:pissed off bounty hunters]].
** From a gameplay perspective, being good (saving more than sacrificing) makes you tougher and harder to kill, but your attack power will suffer and fights will take longer and longer to finish, so if you find yourself with a Divine arm you're probably a glutton for punishment.

* BiggerBad: The Gods who created the setting's world. While the older believes in order, the other likes chaos and greed, and that's why he created the chalice and gave sorcery to his people (the druids). [[spoiler: And that's why the world is in a constant state of destruction and restoration, because he engineered for an especially greedy individual to destroy the world.... the ''same person who was chosen by the other god to be devoid of greed and be able to save it.'' The pure stubborn refusal of either of these Gods to give an inch in their feud drives the EternalRecurrence.]]
** [[spoiler: Finally able to be faced. In the original game, you only got a free DLC that let you face the two in a pair of Forgotten Pacts. ''Delta'' lets you fight God-Magusar, who is possessed by the Twin Gods, as the TrueFinalBoss.]]

The older god chooses a person completely devoid of greed, then that sorcerer is forced to face the apocalypse caused by a crazed magician. The sorcerer wins and sacrifices the magician to restore the world... ''in that point becoming tainted with the same curse that causes the previous end of the world''. With luck they may fight the greed that consumes them since their victory, and avoiding losing their very identity, but even if they'd be able to win against it, it'd only mean than another crazier sorcerer would take their place, forcing for a new savior to come and repeat the process.]]

** In Delta, with the introduction of Grim, now you have to keep to the ideas of the Faction to gain Relationship points and not piss them off. This is used due to the fact that some Neutral Arm characters (such as Magusar, Radux and Sortiara) do not approve of you saving Archfiends, despite them usually uncaring about your choices.
* {{Retcon}}: This is actually a game mechanic. By using Lacrima, you're able to alter certain events and aspects the journal, which include undoing the status buffs caused by Black Rites and resurrecting fallen Allies.

* TogetherInDeath: Illecebra's goal is to die with Magusar. [[spoiler: Later Librom and Magusar are united like this in the sacrifice ending.]]
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: One of the biggest aspects of the game is sacrificing your comrades in battle. It may be a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]] however. While sacrificing your comrade will take him out of the fight, it will not only give you a very powerful attack spawned from his sacrificed carcass, but at the end, he'll get bonus rewards for being sacrificed, so it's a win-win situation.
** Monsters may be "saved" or "sacrificed" when you get them near death. Saving them turns them back to a normal creature (a housecat, a civilian, whatever), it heals you and boosts your defense. Sacrificing them increases your attack power and recharges your offensive spells. Leaning too heavily on one or the other is a potentially powerful strategy that could really unbalance you if you're not careful.
*** As of Delta, you need to do your faction's favoured action (save for Sanctuarium, sacrifice for Avalon and fate for Grim) to recharge your offerings.

* DevelopersForesight:
** One of the unique offerings you can obtain from Marduk, a boss from [[VideoGame/GodEater God Eater 2]], creates a weapon that resembles a God Arc. Not only is it quite powerful in it's own right, but it's charge attack has the weapon [[ShapeshiftingWeapon grow a huge jaw]] and [[CannibalismSuperpower take a bite out of whatever is standing in your way to give you a boost to attack power]], much like what the God Arcs can do in their home series.
** Certain events in the main story change slightly depending on whether you ended up saving or sacrificing your target.


Added DiffLines:

** The only paid DLC in ''Delta'' are the Japanese audio tracks and "memory clods", which let you create more Blank Pages. Of course you can always create blank pages using Lacrima, so why bother?


Added DiffLines:

* GuestFighter: Updates to ''Delta'' added monsters from ''[[VideoGame/GodEater God Eater 2]]'', ''VideoGame/FreedomWars'' and ''{{VideoGame/Toukiden}}'' as bosses.


Added DiffLines:

* LostForever: Averted. Even if you sacrifice someone the first time through a mission, you can replay that mission to save them, or vice-versa. This is in fact required to achieve OneHundredPercentCompletion in the forgotten pacts, as you'll need to play through some branching questlines more than once to access all the missions.


Added DiffLines:

* PointOfNoReturn: Subverted in ''Delta''. You can always go back to the pre-NewGamePlus content by [[spoiler:erasing your character's name from the marker inside their cell.]]
