* ShoutOut: To a lot of things, really. To ''{{WebAnimation/RWBY}}'', to ''{{VisualNovel/Danganronpa}}'', to ''{{Videogame/Tekken}}'', to ''{{Videogame/Drakengard}}'', to ''{{Videogame/Kingdom Hearts}}'', [[UpToEleven to]] ''{{Disney/Frozen}}''...it's kind of hard to keep track. Unsurprisingly, the most shout-outs go to ''{{Franchise/Shin Megami Tensei}}'' games.

* RageAgainstTheHeavens: Kazuto has some...issues with religion. Seeing as how the ruler of the ''SMT''-verse is a worship-hungry despot ''FAR'' from the loving God seen in TheBible, it's not very surprising.

* GuileHero: Kaz [[CloudCuckooLander may not act it from time to time]], but he's shown to be pretty smart. And really good at deductions. [[spoiler: When a murder took place in the school, Kaz was able to find out that it was supernatural in nature before anyone else, just from environmental clues]]. It also helps that he's been exposed to some [[DarkAndTroubledPast pretty weird stuff]] when he was young, so he's a little more GenreSavvy than most of the other characters.

The author even threw in a bit of ''Videogame/DevilSurvivor'', with Frosty!

** Kazuto is [[spoiler: not human at all. He's a ''replica'' of a human. Having been created by Philemon, who used elements from different universes to help create a proper personality for him, Kazuto is merely a puppet used for the sole purpose of being TheHero of his universe, destined to save the world and sacrifice himself in the process of doing so. When he figures this out, Kaz goes into a ''massive'' HeroicBSOD because he ''was never his own person'', along with the fact that the ideals that he had stuck to for so long were merely borrowed, never his own. Kind of makes his identity issues HarsherInHindsight, huh]]?
