* FantasyCounterpartCulture: Most of Nier's world is based off [[FeudalFuture Medieval Europe]], however Facade seems to be influenced mainly by Mayan culture, particularly the clothing and architecture. Never mind that it's meant to be set in Japan...

To the surprise of many, a sequel to ''Nier'', titled ''Videogame/NierAutomata'', was announced at E3 2015, developed by Creator/PlatinumGames but with Taro Yoko still at the director's helm, and [[AwesomeMusic Keiichi Okabe]] on board to compose.

* LostForever: Many quests from the first half of the game become inaccessible after the TimeSkip --which is reasonable enough, since who would wait five years for his mutton to be delivered? If you accept these quests but fail to complete them before that deadline, they will be placed in a special section of your menu for quests that can no longer be completed. And since NewGamePlus places you ''after'' the TimeSkip, it means you'll have to start a whole new game in order to finish these quests.

** Played straight with the first half of the game. After you complete it, any unfinished sidequests are LostForever not just for this playthrough, but in the following NewGamePlus, too.

* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: Ending D of ''NieR'' has [[spoiler:the player simulate the main's character predicament of erasing his own existence by asking the player to delete all their save data. The game actually goes through with it, and you are unable to make another file with the same name you first used.]]

* GenreShift: While most of the game is a third person action adventure game ''NieR'' isn't afraid to change things up on you. Sometimes it acts like a shoot'em up, at one point it turns into an isometric action game, but the most unusual genre shift is in the Forest of Myth when [[spoiler: you enter the dream world the game suddenly becomes a text adventure.]]

* PlayingThePlayer: On NewGamePlus subsequent playthroughs. Not only you can understand boss banter [[spoiler: and it becomes clear they are not there to stop your progression, they attack you because ''you entered their home and are slaughtering their loved ones'']] but collecting all weapons and going through all the endings will end with [[spoiler:your save files be erased.]] Also sidequests in general mock the player with NPC's calling you that idiot who'll do anything for cash and one even gives zero reward.
