Added DiffLines:

* BoundAndGagged: A bit of this to be found mainly on love/hate paths, all in the name of exploitative sexiness. Usually Ashe finds her hands tied behind her back with her own hair ribbon before she knows what hit her. Any gagging only barely qualifies as such (since it's no fun if Ashe doesn't make any sounds.)

''Under the Moon'' is an [[{{Eroge}} 18+]] [[RomanceGame otome game]] released for Windows; possibly the best known of its sub-genre. It is the second installment in a trilogy that also includes ''Love Drops'' and ''Ijiwaru My Master''. With art by Toujou Sakana (also known for ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' yaoi fanart), this game spawned a fan disk and a [[BleachedUnderpants non-explicit]] [=PS2=] [[UpdatedRerelease port]].

* YourCheatingHeart: Invoked in Zero's routes when Ashe catches him in intimate moments with other women. [[spoiler:It's actually subverted. Zero only approaches these women to drain their blood so he can maintain his vampiric powers and keep Ashe safe. On the other hand, the PS2 version has a path that plays the trope straight.]]

* BastardBoyfriend: Love/hate routes turn most of the boys into these, though Sena is the opposite, being a bastard boyfriend only in the pure love route.

Added DiffLines:

* DownerEnding: The only apparent requirement for a "good ending" is that nobody dies. The others are loaded with trauma, death, and in some cases, WhatIf scenarios. Some of the tropes encountered:
** DecapitationPresentation -- [[spoiler:Seen in a disturbing bad ending on Leni's pure love route. Seizh wins a duel with Leni, and brings his severed head to Ashe as proof.]]
** CivilWar -- [[spoiler:Shows up as a [[TakeAThirdOption 3rd option]] on Kyle's love/hate route. The twins send Kyle back to the demon world to separate him from Ashe, and he starts a monster vs. devil civil war. Eventually the twins crush his rebellion.]]
** GoMadFromTheRevelation -- [[spoiler:In a Zero ending, Ashe's latent powers awaken and [[PowerIncontinence go berserk]], killing Leni, Seizh and Kyle. Ashe retreats into self-delusion, unable to cope with the reality of what happened.]]


Added DiffLines:

* DramaticStutter: Kyle stutters magnificently and [[PlayedForLaughs hilariously]] when agitated. [[spoiler:It stops quite abruptly if he becomes a BastardBoyfriend.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ElevatorGoingDown: One of the game's most infamous sex scenes takes place in an elevator.


Added DiffLines:

* SoftspokenSadist: When compared to his brother, Seizh seems downright gentlemanly. He's much easier to talk to, with his pleasant smile and gentle, reedy sort of voice...but he can use this genial tone for anything from [[BreakThemByTalking devastating insults]] to [[ImpliedDeathThreat veiled death threats]].


Added DiffLines:

* ThemeAndVariations: As an expression of the fact that they're twins, Leni and Seizh's {{leitmotif}}s are different arrangements of the same melody.

** While he's in high school like the other boys, Sena might count due to his big eyes and the fact that he was voiced by a woman.

* [[BreakHisHeartToSaveHim Break Her Heart to Save Her]]: [[spoiler:Sena's motivation in his true love paths.]] He legitimately starts to care about Ashe's well-being, but he knows that if she sticks with him, there's nothing but misery in store for her. So he tries being cruel to her to drive her off.
* BreakTheCutie: This is the stated intention of love interests with love/hate paths, but Seizh is cutie-breaker extraordinaire. The more deranged he becomes, the more blatantly he treats Ashe like a plaything. [[spoiler:In one of his endings, he goes full-on LivingDollCollector and dresses Ashe in a frilly CreepyDoll outfit.]]



* FantasticArousal: In the Zero routes, Ashe discovers that Zero's PointyEars are ''very sensitive''.



* FreakinessShame: [[spoiler:Sena is half-angel, so he has wings.]] However, they are stunted and misshapen. He only shows them to Ashe in an attempt to repel her.



** Leni in particular is a CrazyJealousGuy who ''will'' flip out if Ashe interacts with men he doesn't know. In pure love routes he apologizes for it, at least.



* TheIngenue: Ashe hadn't ever been outside the castle before the events of this game, and her father is clearly interested in keeping her away from men.

to:

* TheIngenue: Ashe hadn't ever been outside [[ShelteredAristocrat rarely left the castle castle]] before the events of this the game, and [[OverprotectiveDad her father is clearly interested in keeping her away from men.sheltered]].



* JigsawPuzzlePlot: The truth about Ashe's backstory can only be pieced together through accounts from other characters scattered across multiple routes.



* KissOfTheVampire: Zero is a vampire, so this inevitably comes into play.



* MarryThemAll: Yeah, there's a harem ending. [[spoiler:It's contrived, as is often the case with this sort of twist, but it's one of the few endings in which Ashe becomes a queen in her own right.]]
* MenActWomenAre: The plot quickly renders Ashe powerless and dependent on the protection of the men around her. It goes deeper than that too: [[spoiler:Because Ashe was ''the most powerful devil in the demon world'' until her father erased her memories of Leni and Seizh. In the majority of routes she never gets her full power back and is [[BehindEveryGreatMan content to rely on her love interest on a permanent basis]]. In fact, most paths where Ashe regains her powers lead to tragic bad endings.]]



* RealMenHateSugar: Leni loves ice cream, but gets embarrassed when he's caught eating some.

to:

* RealMenHateSugar: Leni [[SweetTooth loves ice cream, cream]], but gets embarrassed when he's caught eating some.some.
* SpitTrailKiss: Seldom appears in the visuals, but descriptions of a "translucent thread" connecting two kissers is common in the text.



* {{Yandere}}: Seizh seems friendly initially, but his dark side rarely stays hidden for long... and it can culminate in things like MurderTheHypotenuse or IfICantHaveYou.

In no time at all, Ashe and Kyle happen across Leni and Seizh, twin devil brothers with vast magical powers who have [[OfferedTheCrown been appointed as potential successors]] to Ashe's father. Neither brother expresses interest in leaving their new home in the human world to take the throne, but they agree to harbor Ashe on account of an ongoing "[[DemonSlaying devil hunt]]". Angels have declared open season on devils in the human world, leaving Ashe not only unable to defend herself, but unable to go home. Ashamed of her powerlessness, Ashe takes it upon herself to convince Leni or Seizh to become the new demon king.

Added DiffLines:

* AbductionIsLove: [[spoiler:Unan]], of all people, whisks Ashe away to keep her from falling for Leni. It's a vague sort of StockholmSyndrome; Ashe is not exactly his captive, but he is the only person she has to interact with.


Added DiffLines:

* AnywhereButTheirLips: In his pure love route [[spoiler:Sena avoids kissing Ashe, since he'll effectively enslave her if he does.]] He's justifiably reluctant to explain this to her, and this denial of affection is hard on Ashe.


Added DiffLines:

* [[HeWhoMustNotBeSeen They Who Must Not Be Seen]]: The angels participating in the demon hunt never appear on screen. Their presence is heralded by the sound of flapping wings and [[EnergyBow arrows of light]]. The more powerful characters detect them beforehand by sensing their KillingIntent.


Added DiffLines:

* YourCheatingHeart: Invoked in Zero's routes when Ashe catches him in intimate moments with other women. [[spoiler:It's actually subverted. Zero only approaches these women to drain their blood so he can maintain his vampiric powers and keep Ashe safe. On the other hand, the PS2 version has a path that plays the trope straight.]]

Being a {{visual novel}}, ''Under the Moon'' naturally has {{multiple endings}}, the routes for which are generally grouped into two types: "pure love" and "love/hate". Pure love is just what it sounds like. The "love/hate" routes are rather controversial for [[RomanticizedAbuse fetishizing sexual coercion and domination]], and the love interests become {{bastard boyfriend}}s and [[{{yandere}} dangerous obsessives]].
