** ''[=BlazBlue=]: Phase Shift 4'': The fifth novel, released in late September of 2012, this time placing the spotlight on Celica yet again, all the while [[SequelHook setting the stage]] ([[TimeTravel in a rather]] [[NotQuiteDead major way at that]]) for later iterations of the series, ''Chronophantasma'' in particular.
* ''Bloodedge Experience'': In June 2014, another prequel story was released, following a [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute new cast that bears quite a few resemblances to the main story cast]], though younger versions of a few of them appear too.

* PreInsanityReveal: Playing through the Story and Arcade modes for Arakune reveals that the crazy, incoherent, black blob that he is was once a normal human scientist [[spoiler: who dedicated his life to study of the Boundary. Even as he was exposed to seithr the closer he came to the Boundary, he became aware that he was transforming, and that he couldn't stop. In his final moments as a human, it was business as usual as he continued recording his research and studied the Boundary]].

* EvilTaintedThePlace: In the backstory, the Black Beast ravaged the world while leaving seithr, ToxicPhlebotinum that pollutes the ground and waters, and can cause deterioration of the human body and mind. After the battle against the beast (called the Dark War) is over, most of the world in the lower elevations (including the seas) have been covered in seithr, forcing the survivors to build cities in high mountains to avoid them.

* BlackAndGrayMorality: The world of Blazblue is very cynical to say the least, with very few unambiguously good characters. The world was ravaged in the past by an EldritchAbomination that nearly drove humanity to extinction, and even after it was defeated it left most of the world poisoned and uninhabitable. Humanity was forced to create cities high above the ground to avoid being poisoned and governed by an organization that quickly went oppressive and started subjugating any and all opposition. The heads of said organization are an [[AxCrazy insane]] psychopath bent on plunging the world into chaos, a MadScientist only interested in creating the perfect being, and [[spoiler: a god of death]]. The only ones willing to oppose said organization are TheProtagonist, [[BestServedCold who has his own personal issues to sort out,]] and doesn't really give a damn about the world at large though he is at least growing out of it, a second organization with its own dirty laundry, and a small number of vigilantes.

* NobleMaleRoguishMale: between the protagonist brothers, Jin is the noble one - being adopted to a noble family, taught in refined culture and became a TeenGenius of the Military Academy, and has a refined fighting style with his katana, while Ragna is the roguish one - he never receives proper education, is only thought ways of fighting by Jubei, grew up to become a criminal and fights brutishly with a big sword. Although both share a certain trait: they care little for the world and they're both assholes (although Ragna shows his heart of gold more than Jin does and eventually grows out this to become more heroic).Eventually they both grow out that and became more heroic changing there attitude somewhat.

* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: The Six Heroes: [[spoiler:[[NinjaPirateZombieRobot One robot-samurai]], [[FunnyAnimal one bipedal cat]], [[GrandTheftMe one ghost/spirit-thingie]], [[HotWitch one witch]], one [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf butler]], and to top it off, a [[MagicalGirl magical girl]] with a [[SplitPersonality personality disorder]] (well, that's what she is now).]]

*** TeethClenchedTeamwork: In spite of their reputation, The Six Heroes were not a very united force; Nine and Jubei disagreed vehemently [[spoiler: over Kushinada's Lynchpin]] before they eventually became a couple, she and Hakumen dislike each other to this day if ''Central Fiction'' can be believed, and her usual response to seeing Bloodedge could be neatly summarised as 'incinerate on sight'. Hakumen himself is at best VitriolicBestBuds with Valkenhayn and Jubei. And everyone hates Terumi. Even in the present the cast, on the relatively few occasions they are supposed to be working together, seemingly spends more of its time trying to kill each other than stopping the bad guys, which seriously hampers their effectiveness.

** NobodyLovesTheBassist: Tsubaki's popularity pales in comparison to Noel's and Makoto's in the West. Not so in Japan, where she's no 2 behind Noel.

* AlignmentBasedEndings: Both Continuum Shift and Calamity Trigger (and to a degree, Chronophantasma) have alternate endings based upon player decisions during each character story.
* AllMythsAreTrue: This game borrows seiðr (here rendered as "seither"), as well as symbolism of Ragnarök and Ratatoskr from Norse Myth. It also has playable vampires and werewolves. Though the heaviest influence is Shinto, with Murakumo (Nu), Susanooh (Hakumen) and Orochi (Black Beast) being integral to the GroundhogDayLoop of Calamity Trigger. And in Chronophantasma, the GreaterScopeVillain is revealed to be [[spoiler:none other than Izanami herself.]]

* DiscOneFinalBoss: Nu-13 is pretty much the closest thing ''Calamity Trigger'' has to a BigBad, but it turns out in the end that she's just one of [[spoiler:Hazama's]] pawns, and she is quickly discarded. [[spoiler:Ironically, Hazama (and Relius as well) are revealed to be mere pawns for Izanami/Saya, as of ''Chronophantasma'', and she discards them just as easily]].
