* {{Flanderization}}: In ''Aria'' Hammer makes ''one'' mention about what he thinks of Yoko, saying that she is his type. In ''Dawn'' Hammer is completely smitten by Yoko, but he CannotSpitItOut and about half of his dialogue is pumping Soma for information about Yoko and what exactly her relationships with Arikado and Julius are.



* {{Flanderization}}: In ''Aria'' Hammer makes ''one'' mention about what he thinks of Yoko, saying that she is his type. In ''Dawn'' Hammer's attraction to Yoko is suddenly one of his defining characteristics, and he is blushing and stumbling over his words whenever he interacts with Yoko like a schoolboy with a crush.

** Also from ''Aria'', how to get Legion's soul, the only boss whose Soul you may get or not. [[spoiler:You have to attack its outer shell made up of corpses first. This shell is made up of four segments, which break off with enough damage, exposing its core. The catch is, you must ''not'' destroy the core without getting rid of all the bodies surrounding it. If you do, you kill it anyway, but you won't get its soul. And, since it's a boss, [[PermanentlyMissableContent you cannot fight it again for its soul in that run]].]]

** To a lesser extent, Julius modes' primary mechanic in ''Aria''. Yes, you ''can'' get to the final boss [[spoiler:Graham]] almost immediately since Julius starts with all his abilities unlocked, but if you do that the boss will ''destroy'' you. Turns out, Julius 'levels up' only after defeating the games' bosses, so you need to go around and defeat them before you can effectively stand up to the final boss.

* ArbitrarySkepticism: Soma is perfectly OK with thinking he's been teleported from Japan to Europe to Dracula's castle, but tell him he is merely inside an eclipse? You're insane!
** At least Europe is a place and not an astronomical event - and to be fair, he didn't really get much time to react to the former before being told the latter.

* GreatOffscreenWar: The assault on Dracula's castle in 1999, in which Dracula was finally killed for good and his castle sealed inside an eclipse. This event directly results in the whole story of ''Aria of Sorrow''. Unlike every other instance this wasn't just a lone hero traversing the castle and fighting Dracula, but it also involved contemporary military forces, as seen in the zombies of the soldiers in ''Aria''.

** [[spoiler:Graham's]] second form is similar to that of Dracula's in ''Symphony'': a large mass of flesh in the background with huge hands on the sides that swipe at you.

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: In ''Dawn'', defeating Aguni bereaves Dario of his [[PlayingwithFire fire powers]]. Realizing he's completely emasculated, he hightails it out of the castle and effectively [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse out of the rest of the game]].

** Using the Devil soul in ''Dawn'' eventually turns Soma into this. It stops draining health if Soma doesn't have more than 10 HP without revoking the power boost... but you still don't have more than 10 HP, so just about anything will likely kill you.
