** One particular level has a secret area with 3 chests and a screenshot of the first game's shops on the wall. Pit's only comment is that it brings back memories.[[note]]This goes slightly farther in the difficulty system (called "Intensity"), where you can spend/bet in game currency to raise or lower the Intensity from 0.0-9.0 (2.0 being default, anything lower spending Hearts to make it easier and anything higher). Secret areas are usually protected with doors called "Intenstity Gates" which are locked unless you're playing at certain Intensity levels. This specific required Intensity? 8.0.

* EpicFail: Viridi drops her last Reset Bomb on the Aurum Brain's housing after Pyrrhon merges with the Brain. Repeat: she drops a self-described natural accelerator, which generates a giant forest, on a completely artificial structure, which is under the control of someone who ''may'' be the sun god and ''definitely'' has fire powers. Pyrrhon laughs it off and sets it aflame.

* SayMyName: Almost anytime Hades shows up, Pit dramatically shouts his name. It's the same voice clip each time to boot.
