* AwesomeMusic: This game has several awesome musics to go. For instance, Hyde's theme [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6iJRoTYMfc Scraper Sky High]], Seth's theme [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wyyI87Jp-w Monochrome Memory]], Orie's theme [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8cmy1aXpWg Purity And Strictly]], Sion's theme [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TuwoH2iZuKU Blood Drain -Again-]].
** The recent update gave us a theme for Hyde vs. Seth matches: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-cf2j-oZXw Mutual Situation]], a mash-up of their respective themes.
* CrackShip: Merkava/Vatista is oddly popular despite their interactions in their arcade ladders being less than friendly.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Pretty much the entirety of Eltnum and Akatsuki's Arcade Mode scenarios.
** How does Seth restrain Linne after defeating her? By wrapping her up in a mattress and hanging her up in a tree.
** Vatista in general is quite funny, due to how terrible her social skills are. For starters, she didn't understand why Hyde had a problem with her being naked in public, causing her to strip again later when she believes only Hyde has a problem with it. The gag gets referenced several times whenever Vatista encounters another woman, asking Hyde if she forced her to wear clothing as well.
** Vatista explains her first encounter with Hyde to Nanase, [[UnprovokedpervertPayback who misinterprets her words horribly.]]
* ComplacentGamingSyndrome: A LOT of people have been using Phonon nowadays ever since the release of Exe: Late[st].
* EnsembleDarkhorse: With how much fan-art Vatista gets, you'd swear she's far more relevant to the plot than she actually is. In general, she's loved for having a [[{{Moe}} cute]] [[ElegantGothicLolita design]] along with having one of the most unique movesets in the game. [[note]] She has charged attacks for ''every'' possible directional input. [[/note]]
** Not to be outdone, Merkava is also quite popular.
* FanPreferredCouple: Alongside the above [[CrackShip Merkava/Vatista]], [[MayflyDecemberRomance Hyde/Vatista]] is also popular, thanks to their interactions in the latter's arcade scenario.
* MemeticMutation: Nobody wears panties. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMXl4L3Viak This video]] is a bit of proof.
* {{Moe}}: A good majority of the female cast are this, but [[RobotGirl Vatista]] and [[GenkiGirl Yuzuriha]] are notable examples.
* MostAnnoyingSound: Of course, Hilda with her NoblewomansLaugh.
* TierInducedScrappy: Quite a few...
** Gordeau, due to reaching damn near GameBreaker status via the reach on his attacks.
** Chaos is often on the low-end of the spectrum, due to how little he has in the way of reversals and being unable to command Azhi Dahaka while under pressure himself.
** Waldstein is a Grappler character that is generally held to be the second-best character in the game. YouCanPanicNow.
** Merkava is usually part of the trinity of the best characters in the game, alongside Gordeau and Waldstein, but his darkhorse status protects him from fan backlash a bit.
** Akatsuki, due to his hindered physical range on his normals which prevent him from playing a decent footsies game compared to everyone else. This was before most of his buffs in Exe: Late[st].
** Phonon, ever since Exe: Late[st], where she's used very frequently due to her long range and solid hit-confirms.
