Added DiffLines:

** In fact, Taro Yoko, in another interview, explained, at the least, the theme that was in his head. Namely? "Is it right to kill for Justice." Followed by, "What is "Justice"...as Nier was inspired by the post 9/11 attitudes.

Added DiffLines:

* LateArrivalSpoiler: Kaine being Intersex and Emil being gay for the titular character are this, especially with many reviewers that go in depth with the series popping up everywhere since NierAutomata's initial announcement.

* CultClassic: Has this reputation nowadays.

* CultClassic: Has this reputation nowadays. While the gameplay isn't amazing, the soundtrack and art design are well liked, with the story in particular being lauded as a masterpiece.



* VindicatedByHistory: When it first came out, the game was left to rot on store shelves by non interested gamers and was forgotten. Nowadays it is well known as an amazing game and is considered to be Taro Yoko's best game. For just one example, Joystiq initially slapped the game with a zero, only for them to later acknowledge it as one of the best games of the last decade. [[VideoGame/NieRAutomata It's even gotten a sequel now]], not only due to its growing cult following, but due to the fact that the developers themselves were fans and were thrilled to be given the opportunity.

* AwesomeEgo: Weiss. He is VERY full of himself but he's so charismatic most people find his arrogance comical or charming as opposed to grating.


Added DiffLines:

** Grimoire Weiss is also rather popular among fans for his hilariously arrogant attitude and biting remarks, helped immensely by the charismatic performance of [[Creator/LiamOBrien his voice actor]].

%%* NauseaFuel: The "Banquet of the Witch" short story from ''Grimoire Nier''.

to:

%%* NauseaFuel: The "Banquet * MorePopularSpinOff: A lot of people were not even aware of the Witch" short story game's connection to the Drakengard franchise when they first played it, since the marketing didn't mention it and its references to Drakengard are vague. Even now that this connection is more well-known, people are far more likely to be familiar with this game than the series that it spawned from. It's gotten the most attention from ''Grimoire Nier''.critics and general audiences since its release for its storytelling and music, and even within the Drakengard fandom proper it's frequently considered to be the best game in the series.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Falls into this for a lot of people due to being a really depressing, tragic story, but many fans have noted that it's a lot easier to become invested in this game compared to the rest of the Drakengard series due to the fact that the characters are much more sympathetic (if still heavily flawed) and the game has a lot more warmth and heartwarming moments.

* DesignatedHero:
** It's revealed that Kainé, unlike Nier, is very well aware of fact that [[spoiler:Shades are sentient]], however she never drops a hint or tries to stop the merciless slaughter. It's revealed that she's trying to convince herself that they aren't human when Tyrann mocks her numerous times for killing innocent souls, and she yells at him to shut up. To her defense the lizard shade taunted her by pretending to be a grandma early so she might not trust what the voices says.
** [[spoiler:Nier is ''definitely'' one, especially considering what the long term repercussions of killing the Shadowlord were. In trying to get back his daughter, he winds up leading both Replicants and Gestalts to their eventual extinction, save Emil.]]

*** The second boss of the Junkheap gives quite a shocker on your second playthrough by revealing that [[spoiler:the little shade the boss was guarding was a little kid who's mother just died. And just like before, once the boss is down, the shade has to be killed to finish the fight. Good luck mustering the strength to continue after that.]]



** A good number of other less important sidequests also count and some of them seem to be specifically tailored to piss off the player by forcing them to gather a ton of rare items for a ridiculously mundane purpose (such as 10 rare metals just to make a single kitchen knife or 5 sharks for a dish that's ultimately decreed by both the chef and Nier to be better without any), especially considering how much more reasonable the sidequests with actually useful rewards are. Thankfully you don't miss anything by just ignoring them and they largely seem to exist to taunt OCD people about their completion percentage being lower than 100%. The banter you get for each one is nice to hear regardless, even though for most of them it's not worth the trouble.

Thankfully you don't miss anything by just ignoring them them, except for one near the beginning of the game that unlocks the farm, and they even that is difficult to miss. Mind you, for 100% of the achievements, you only need to do 50% of the sidequests. They largely seem to exist to taunt OCD people about their completion percentage being lower than 100%.
