These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Dirge of Cerberus
Alternate Character Interpretation: Depending on your point of view, Lucrecia can come across as either a remorseful victim of Hojo's insanity looking to make amends for harming the only man who ever really loved her, or as a callous heartbreaker who strung Vincent along for years, accidentally killed his father, dumped him for Hojo, then experimented on her own son in utero then sealed herself inside a crystal because she just couldn't live with herself any more. And Vincent still loves her.
Awesome Music: Regardless of the game's quality, you have to admit Masashi Hamauzu did a good job.
Gackt's absolutely kick-ass songs during the gameplay and the ending credits.
Fashion-Victim Villain: Oh, where do we start? Nero's face jockstrap? Weiss's karate pants? The Deepground soldiers' Mako-infused glowing uniforms (they'll die without Mako infusions)? Rosso's butt-cape and Azul's horse blanket? Heck, even Vincent's Chaos form might count as a heroic example.
This is exactly why The Dark Id's LP includes a special feature at the end of some updates titled "Fuck Tetsuya Nomura", dedicated to mocking the character designs of this game.
Lucrecia: "This isn't how it was supposed to be. I've made too many mistakes. And I've hurt you so, so much. Why did I do what I did? I'm so sorry. But I'm so happy you survived."
Villain Decay: Hojo. Even though he appears to be just as evil as he was in the original game, he is robbed of most of his actual character traits and becomes far more stereotypical, making it difficult for players to take him seriously. However, it is heavily implied that the reason for his more-stereotypical behavior was because he lost his sanity after his botched attempt at injecting himself with Jenova's cells.
