* ApocalypseDayPlanner: Remarked on by Maya's coworkers during ''Eternal Punishment'''s prologue; the planets all aligned in the Grand Cross formation "this summer", but nothing happened. Those who've played the previous game remember things [[ApocalypseWow a]] [[DepopulationBomb little]] [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt differently]].

Added DiffLines:

* DeadAllAlong: Two characters in ''Innocent Sin'' who appear despite having definitively died until rumors were spread turn out never to have revived: [[spoiler:Akinari Kashihara and Adolf Hitler, who are simply disguises used by Nyarlathotep]].


Added DiffLines:

** Father problems are so prevalent in ''Innocent Sin'' that [[spoiler:Nyarlathotep]]'s second form in the final battle of that game is a monstrous amalgamation of all five protagonist's fathers, headed by [[spoiler:Jun's, as Kashihara was one of Nyarlathotep's two main disguises]].


Added DiffLines:

* FinalBoss:
** In ''Innocent Sin'', Hitler confronts the party at the end of the final dungeon and fights them. After his defeat, [[spoiler:he reveals that both he and Kashihara are fakes being played by the same guy. Hitler turns into Kashihara and becomes a monster made of the party's fathers, with Kashihara at the head. Notably, it's only after the Great Father is beaten when it's revealed that the mastermind is Nyarlathotep]].
** In ''Eternal Punishment'', [[spoiler:Nyarlathotep]] makes his appearance after the fall of the New World Order and has the party go through one last dungeon, complete with Shadows of all the party members save Tatsuya. [[spoiler:Nyarlathotep]] takes on the appearance of ''Innocent Sin'' Tatsuya and fights the party with his main and true forms before a definitive defeat.

* OneSteveLimit: Averted. Tatsuya Suou reads ''a lot'' like Tatsuya Sudou, which one NPC early into ''Innocent Sin'' will point out ([[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything though only if the player didn't change Suou's name of course]]). Likewise, Maya Amano shares the same name as Maya Okamura. Both of this factor into the plot, albeit in different ways.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Just look at your party status after Eikichi gets his legendary weapon.

* DifficultButAwesome: Crafting stuff at Padparcha isn't the easiest thing in the world to do. Most of the materials are either won at the casino or returning multiple Rank 8 persona to get the items. However, the pros significantly outweigh the cons. Take the Hihi-Irokane armor in Eternal Punishment for example. 67 defense, 50 special defense and a hell of a boost to evasion make the armor well worth hours at the casino,

* DiscOneNuke: The Low-End Breaker Fusion Spell, which instantly kills whichever enemy has the lowest level. The only thing stopping it from being a full-blown GameBreaker is its inability to kill bosses (though rumour demons are fair game).

* UnreliableNarrator / SympatheticPOV: In ''Innocent Sin'', Katsuya acts more strict, as it's told from Tatsuya's point of view. However; he doesn't ''quite'' act the same in ''Eternal Punishment'', where the story is told from Maya's point in view.

* UnbuiltTrope: ''Innocent Sin'' debuted with many of the ideas that became synonymous with the series, but it also showed just how damning it would be for a group of mentally vulnerable and immature teenagers to be put in a fight against society, cosmic entities and themselves [[spoiler:and their only achievement was turning an already bad situation even worse, dancing to the tune of one of the participants of a CosmicChessGame all the way to the end]].

Added DiffLines:

* DoubleEntendre: In these games and ''Persona 1'', the [[SomethingElseAlsoRises Tower]] arcana consistently has Bad affinity with female party members (meaning they either can't invoke it or get penalized with higher SP cost if they try to). Wonder why that is.

** With the "rumors become reality" effect going around, ''everyone'' capable of spreading rumors becomes this. Both the good guys ''and'' the bad guys utilize this in story and in gameplay (in ''Eternal Punishment'', for example, if you piss off a demon while equipped with an ultimate weapon, they will spread a rumor that greatly weakens it). Later in the games, Lisa (IS) and Ulala (EP) laments not being able to tell what's real anymore.

* InevitableWaterfall: When traveling along the Silver River, Lisa starts to get bored with how long it takes. Eikichi get's fed up snaps at her that maybe a [[TemptingFate waterfall suddenly popping up like in the movies]] would make her happy. Cue the sound of crashing water.
