* In two battles that involve Innominat, Velvet and Laphicet manage to get the drop on him by distracting him with the two items that held significance for them due to their connections with [[spoiler:Innominat's previous life as Human!Laphicet: a comb that Human!Laphicet gave to Velvet as a present, and Malak!Laphicet's compass which is similar to the compass that Human!Laphicet wished for. They both ended up getting destroyed by Innominat's attacks but also distracted him long enough for both characters to land a direct blow on him. In Malak!Laphicet's case, it represented his growth of character beyond being Velvet's ReplacementGoldfish of her younger brother into his own person, and in Velvet's case, it's her letting go of her guilt for failing to protect her brother and using it as a justification to pursue her vengeance.]]

* DLC brilliance, at first one would think Eleanors swimsuit and japon costumes covering a lot and being modest compared to Velvet and Magilou is due to her personality and Abbey background, [[spoiler: but she grew up in the tropical Midgand area, doubtful she would always feel obligated to cover as much as possible for modesty, she's covering her large scar she got back when her mother was killed by the troll demon]].

* As mentioned under VillainBall, why does [[spoiler: Melchior get suckered into the obvious trap at Mount Killaraus when, by not going, he could easily doom Velvet's plan and hand the Abbey a win?]] We all know how smart and wily this person is and doing this seems extremely out of character for them. But it's not - [[spoiler: He knows full well no force in that world is going to stop Shigure from going, which gives them three souls. But they need four. True, but he also knows the fourth soul is already there - Eleanor is pure enough to be a sacrifice and would sacrifice herself in a heartbeat if it meant stopping Innominat, and further he knows that no amount of growth or fondness would stop Velvet from doing it if it were the only way. He can't stop the plan by ignoring the challenge and he knows that. By going he hopes to be able to exploit their hesitance to kill Eleanor to run out the clock, kill them in a ifight, or blow up the volcano to kill them before they can succeed. Only Magilou's last-second creativity stops him from doing the latter.]] Thus, what appears to be a VillainBall is actually a coldly calculated move.

** [[spoiler: Shigure's]] theme, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gfOB-4fSUI Beat of Rangetsu]] is the most unique of the themes, prominently featuring a guitar and a Japanese flute and koto which is heard nowhere in the Abbey's main theme. [[spoiler: The guitar and the Japanese instruments naturally reflect Shigure's position as head of the Rangetsu clan and his connection to Rokurou (whose {{Leitmotif}} also features a guitar and a Japanese flute), but the differences in instruments also symbolize how Shigure himself [[NotInThisForYourRevolution is not interested in the plans of Artorius or the Abbey]] and thus doesn't play by their rules.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Another bit of brilliance around the Reaper's Curse. Eizen mentions how many companions he's lost because of the Reaper's Curse, but few of the party take it seriously. In fact, they treat it as something of a RunningGag, and Velvet even considers it to work in their favor at times, treating it as more of a curiosity than a curse. Along the way though, it continues to show its prominence: He loses [[spoiler: [[MercyKill Aifread]] during the main plot and [[LotusEaterMachine Velvet]] and [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence Laphicet]] during the ending]] and after it's all over [[spoiler: [[{{Muggle}} Benwick and the crew]] can't see him anymore either]].


* The matchings for the dual mystic artes make a degree of sense. Velvet and Laphicet makes sense from a character perspective they also both have power that originates [[spoiler: from Innominat]]. Eleanor and Magilou both draw their power from pacts with Malaks (Laphicet and Bienfu respectively). Finally Eizen and Rokurou both have fighting styles focused on attacking with both hands (bare fists and twin blades respectively).

* Throughout the entire game, Eizen, Zaveid, and the crew talk about how powerful Aifread is, yet once you actually fight him [[spoiler: He's weak to ''void'' damage and is actually somewhat of an AntiClimaxBoss]]. InformedAbility? Yes - but it's actually justified in that you're clearly ''not'' fighting Aifread at his best and you are performing a MercyKill.

* Something of a fridge tear-jerker, but Velvet has a tendency to sleep on the floor leaning against a wall even when there is a bed available. why? Because she's so used to it after three years in her cell she probably can't sleep normally anymore.

* One thing you'll notice quickly is that nobody in the party uses a traditional sword. Sure Rokurou has a sword, but he opts to use twin daggers during combat and only the sword under special circumstances. But then you realize that many of the exorcists, Artorious, Shigure, and Oskar in particular all use swords since, in the public's eyes, they are supposed to be the Heroes.

* There's a CallForward style brilliance in the description of the Reaper's Curse. It's actually the result of Eizen's domain, which grants a "blessing" in a dark form. In his case, it's born from his desire to [[DeclarationOfProtection protect his sister]].
