* NightmareFuel: The Neuro Tower, in both games. Being a confined, dungeon-like space with all these Meta-Beings, and not knowing what's in store when you advance to the next level... first-person or third-person perspective, it's a creepy
** Quite a few of the characters themselves. The Horned Girl's lack of thoughts/personality, particularly that moment when you realize she's saying what ''you're'' thinking. Longneck's creepy masochistic attitude. The Archangel's treatment of you, impaled on a spike of a Consciousness Orb, looking dead in the original but clearly awake/alive in the remake. The Protagonist being the only one who looks/acts like an actual human being in the game.

* FanNickname: The protagonist is usually referred to as Dextera XII. Also, Koriel XIII
* GameBreaker: It's a relatively easy roguelike, and the fact that you can save items between runs makes a few possible.
** With an Addition Box and two split brands, you can duplicate an infinite number of any item in the game.
** Vampire Swords will randomly gain a weapon level and heal you. Once you find one, you won't need any other weapon.

*** The ''real'' way Dextera [[{{GameplayAndStorySegregation}} obtains the Baroques of the main characters]]. [[spoiler: He strangles them to death.]]
*** Many meta beings are creepy, but [[http://www.atlus.com/baroque/ps2/ikei/ikei2/ikei16.htm Bubugel]] and [[http://www.atlus.com/baroque/ps2/ikei/ikei2/ikei06.htm Nicl & Nicr]] (the worst case of LoveHurts) made the rest rather tame.
*** Being a confined, dungeon-like space with all these Metabeings, and not knowing what's in store when you advance to the next level... *shudder*
*** Advanced Angel. . . [[spoiler:looks dead when you find him in the original.]] YYMV if it's better or worse that he [[spoiler:is both awake and alive in the remake.]]
* ThatOneBoss: The only four bosses aren't even required to beat the game, technically. And boy are they HARD. Even worse, after you beat them [[spoiler: in the Neuro Tower, they become normal enemies in the Coffin Guy's bonus dungeons.]]
* UncannyValley: Most of the creatures in the game fall under this, to some. The remake making everything slightly more cartoonish may make it even farther.
** Its kinda strange how some characters like the Protagonist, Archangel and the Absolute God are drawn in typical anime style yet others like the Coffin man are drawn in a more realistic manner.

* HellIsThatNoise: Considering the nature of this game, this is only to be expected.
** The music even seems to incorporate noises the enemies make when they move around. Talk about devious.
