* NazisWithGnarlyWeapons: Overlooking the robot suits and [=UFO=]s, their hardware and planes are strictly 1939.

** Kazuya gets hit with this when his younger brother Tatsuya doesn't come home for days. No one knows where he is, and it becomes clear that he's involved with something big and keeps on refusing help.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The television broadcasts in ''Eternal Punishment'' reveal that agents of the NWO, comprised of celebrities and political elites, are aware of the rumour curse and are using it to their own advantage.



** The Time Castle guy in ''Eternal Punishment'' is aware of it when you use a rumor to make his shop sell and duplicate spell cards. [[spoiler: Actually, he's Nyarlathotep, chilling with you, selling you the stuff you need, invites you to relax... [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy and talk a bit about your next moves]]...]]

* AlreadyMetEveryone: The main party of ''Innocent Sin'', barring Yukino, all knew each other from the Alaya Shrine as kids. After a fire destroyed the original site, the remaining trio went their separate ways. The arsonist is later revealed to have been a young Tatsuya Sudou a.k.a. King Leo.

* AdultFear: The backstory for [[spoiler: The Masked Circle, aka Innocent Sin's protagonists]] is full of this. [[spoiler: One day, your children don't come home on time. Then you find out that they were attacked by a serial arsonist.]] It gets worse from there.

''Innocent Sin'' was [[UpdatedRerelease remade]] for the PlayStationPortable with widescreen support, new art, enhanced demon negotiations, and the option to pick between the original soundtrack and a remastered version. It also slightly censored the more overt Nazi imagery at the end of the game that is widely believed to have prevented the PSX release from leaving Japan. This version of the game was released in North America in September of 2011 and in Europe in November 2011, published by Ghostlight. [[http://www.siliconera.com/2012/02/28/persona-2-eternal-punishment-coming-to-psp-with-new-scenario/ It was confirmed that Eternal Punishment would also be remade and was released in May 2012 with an extra scenario]], but alas, it was not released outside of Japan. Thankfully, the original PSX version was re-released around the same time [[http://us.playstation.com/games/persona-2-eternal-punishment-ps3-psp.html on PlayStation Network]], available in all regions.

* KaijuDefenseForce: Majority of the enemies later on in Eternal Punishment are [=JGSDF=] soldiers recruited by Sugawara. This distinction was not made clearly in the international version when [=EP=] was released overseas on the PlayStation.

* DarkerAndEdgier: ''Innocent Sin'' is dark, even by ''{{MegaTen}}'' standards. [[spoiler: In the ''only'' ending, the heroes lose without really having accomplished much of anything, the world is destroyed, one of their number dies, and the only way they can squeak out anything resembling a happy ending is cutting a deal with Philemon that undoes everything that happened, both good and ill.]]

* GenreBusting: It's an RPG UrbanFantasy about saving the world and facing your fears and with psychological elements and it's a horror game like the other Megatens. And IS has one part with a DatingSim element to boot.

* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: Moreso than in most other Megaten games. Maya's party in particular is nicely coiffed.

* TomeOfEldritchLore: "In-Lak'ech", a [[GreatBigBookOfEverything great big book]] of [[ConspiracyTheorist conspiracy theories]] ranging from Hitler's [[MysteriousAntarctica secret base in Antarctica]] to [[EvilAlienConquerors hibernating genocidal aliens]]. Naturally, releasing this book in a place like Sumaru City is...[[WhoWouldBeStupidEnough not a good idea]].

* DownerEnding: [[spoiler:Maya dies violently, Tatsuya's friends are ripped from him, and the world burns.]]
** RayOfHopeEnding: Eikichi expresses an interest in hiring Tatsuya to lend street cred to his band (again), suggesting that they met yet become friends.
** In ''Eternal Punishment'', Maya and Tatsuya swap places at the conclusion of their stories: [[spoiler: Tatsuya returns to the Other Side to live in Sumaru and create a future there, even with the world destroyed;]] his "This Side" counterpart [[spoiler:now lives out his carefree youth--but now Maya is burdened with those old memories]]. Word of God is noncommittal about how it'll all work out. Shipping Maya/Tatsuya or Maya/Katsuya no longer seems feasible due to the risks and painful memories involved. "Big" Suou and "Little" Suou are getting along better, with Tatsuya lighting his brother's cigarette and inquiring about taking the police exam. Baofu and Ulala are also together, healing their respective wounds and running their own detective agency.
* DrowningMySorrows: Ulala and Baofu's Contact option while in battle.
