** The simple, elegant, devastating [[HpToOnePandemic Bomb/Death's Door]] combo. It's perfect for cutting down enemies with [[StoneWall huge HP pools]] like Pendragon, but where it really shines are Horde Battles: because of the strange way Hordes take damage, Death's Door will hit them with enough damage to reduce their HpToOne...[[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill three times]], effectively making it a OneHitKill on them.

* AccidentalInnuendo: If you walk into one of the weapons shops during a sale, the dealer says this:
--> "You had to ''come'' now, didn't you?"

* BiasSteamroller: While the game still got good scores in America, the game was often compared to the ''Persona'' series, with reviewers concluding that the story and characters are bland as a result.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: When negotiating with a demon, sometimes the demon will order Flynn to [[KneelBeforeZod kneel before it]], and the only options shown are [[ButThouMust Submit, Submit, and Submit]]. [[spoiler:In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'', Flynn is forced to submit before the BigBad. On one route, he's brainwashed by someone else and indeed kneels before them.]]

** Mido's "OOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!" Not only does is he shamelessly hammy, but hearing that also means you've unlocked a new demon for fusion.

* UnderusedGameMechanic: Some of the more interesting demon conversation skills, most notably Chitchat (cause the enemy to waste one Press Turn) and Negotiate (bribe the enemy until they let you leave, guaranteed escape if you use it while the target's asleep), do not reappear for ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse''. Then again, ''Apocalypse'' does introduce the Imposing Stance skill that removes one Press Turn from the enemy party's next round, and no boss in ''Apocalypse'' gets more than three turns (not even the {{Bonus Boss}}es), so having Chitchat (particularly Chitchat+, which takes away 2 turns) and Imposing Stance in the same game would've made for a GameBreaker strategy.
