** That's without even mentioning [[spoiler: said terrorist cult releasing a virus that wipes out a third of the human race, causing the rest of society to collapse from the sudden loss of life affecting all aspects of daily life, and finally culminating in 18 annhilation (antimatter) reactors around the world being sabotaged, creating an explosion so powerful that it plunges the earth into a nuclear winter, and the clouds resulting from the explosion blot out the sun for seven years. Mankind begins to recover, but even 45 years later, the earth still appears red from space due to green and blue light being unable to pass through the pollution in the atmosphere. While the whole point of the game is to prevent this, the game follows many-worlds theory, meaning that the characters we meet and know (excluding Phi and Sigma) will never see that future.]] Darker and Edgier is an understatement.

* AlternateUniverse: Some of the characters suggest [[spoiler:time travel works on a "many-worlds" system, meaning the routes in which characters died or went crazy still exist, and even if Dr. Klim stops the Radical-6 incident, the players of this game will still be stuck in their current BadFuture]]. This is confirmed in the next game ZeroTimeDillemma

Eowyn makes the same statement right before killing the witch king in [[TheLordOfTheRings ''The Return of the King'']] and The Odyssey, which is the alias which Odysseus/Ulysses makes when tricking the cyclops Polyphemus.

* TemporalParadox: [[spoiler:Subverted, according to WordofGod. It seems that technically, the deactivation code for Bomb #01 doesn't really originate from anywhere because Dio never tells it to anyone, but Zero Sr. does, and Zero Sr. is Sigma, meaning he would learn from "himself". What actually happened is that Akane hacked Bomb #01 and changed its password, which is how Zero Sr. knew of it. Incidentally (refer to EasterEgg), the password for that bomb is one letter away from the name of Akane's organization.]]

* DubInducedPlotHole: A slight example, but the INeverSaidItWasPoison moment makes less sense in the translated version. [[spoiler: In the Japanese version, Sigma says that he knows about Clay Dolls and Dio reveals himself by saying that he doesn't know ''who'' the Clay Dolls are, which makes sense since people would normally assume clay dolls are objects, not people, if they didn't know about them. In the translated version, however, Clay Dolls are called "Myrmidons", a name which originally refered to a group of people from Greek mythology and sometimes used in pop-culture and always refering to people, so even if Dio didn't know anything about them, assuming that Sigma is talking about some group of people isn't much of a stretch and doesn't look particulary suspicious.]]
