* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Muse and Prim, respectively.
* WeCouldHaveAvoidedAllThis: Magnastar and Prometh both could've solved things in a far less bloody fashion had they just spelled out who the real enemy was. Magnastar simply ran on the assumption that either the foreign god and the God of Darkness "Demon Lord" were the same being or were collaborating against him, exactly which is unclear, and never sought to clear things up. Prometh on the other hand, through a series of coincidences and intentional evasion, simply [[spoiler: never met Erik in the first place]] to call things out until after the fact.

* MismatchedEyes: Signa's right eye is a [[OccultBlueEyes bright blue]], while his left eye changes depending on his portrait alignment. Good portraits have a [[GreenEyes green eye]], Neutral a [[SupernaturalGoldEyes gold one]], and Evil a [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eye]]. Regardless, Cassel notes that Signa's eyes are extremely creepy at least once.

In this game, you take control of a young man (Default name: Signa) who awakens with no memories inside of a strange castle and is led by a strange girl named Peg to a device called the Astral Furnace that kills people and converts them into Star Power for use by Magnastar, the ruler of the city. After being saved at the last moment, Signa defeats Peg, the demon Pegasus, in battle, and absorbs her soul into his eye, turning her into an ally. Signa soon learns that he is part of the Asteria Revolution, aiming to overthrow Magnastar and free the city by using his own Demon Gazer and Star Power against him.

* LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards: Inverted. Physically oriented characters are decent, though behind any mages, early on in the game. Late game there are many areas that passively disable magic and numerous enemies carry Magic Break, which cuts all magical power in half. Meanwhile physical characters suffer no such restrictions in any areas and any buffs or debuffs that could hinder their output can be dispelled, unlike Magic Break. Many weapons throughout the game also carry a chance on hit to cast spells, late game physical characters who are reaching the damage cap can begin investing in their INT stat and use these weapons to effectively surpass the standard damage cap. Mages, while having access to ''some'' of these weapons, lack default access to physical skills to help hit repeatedly to trigger the weapons, ultimately leaving them on status management duty rather than direct combat participation.

* MauveShirt: Gary. A faceless regular much like Jig from the first game, he regularly accompanies Signa out on various missions and assists in the public broadcasts. By the time the third one rolls around he starts expressing concerns and actively goes out of his way to raise just about every relevant death flag with several characters beginning to worry about the him and the event itself. [[spoiler: Ultimately the broadcast goes off as well as can be expected, [[SubvertedTrope and with nobody dying]]. ]]

All the flag raising accomplished was to get several Revolutionist members captured harmlessly.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FalseReassurance: Muse is not so great at helping her case, as seen below at INeverSaidItWasPoison. Prometh gets in on it too.
--> '''Muse''': "Even if it were true, we're harmless ''[[ThinkingOutLoud for the time being]]'', so forget about it!"
--> '''Toma''': "For... the time being?"
--> '''Lezerem''': "So you're going to be harmful later on?
--> '''Gary''': "How unconvincing."
--> '''Cassel''': "Hey, Prometh. Are you sure we'll be okay?"
--> '''Prometh''': "Yes. You will be fine. More or less. Roughly speaking."


Added DiffLines:

* INeverSaidItWasPoison: Zabu questions how accurate Magnastar's claims of[[spoiler: the Revolutionist Party serving the Demon Lord are and Muse tries to shut it down claiming there's no way she and Prim could be the Demon Lord's daughters. Cassel is quick to point out that nobody suggested anything about anyone being ''daughters'' of the Demon Lord.]]


** Driven home with two back to back plotlines. Toma's capture is treated as being [[NoOneGetsLeftBehind absolutely necessary to rescue him]], even setting aside the emotional aspect as simply being that they can't afford to sacrifice anyone or risk losing the goodwill of the people. Lezerem's capture is written off as him deserving it and that "sometimes you have to sacrifice one for the greater good." and is promptly written off as though he's already dead. His rescue is entirely accidental



* HaremSeeker: Signa, potentially. A ''very'' thinly veiled question from Muse during a radio interview wonders who between sisters he'd be interested in. One option is to say he'd simply go for both at once.



* MismatchedEyes: Signa's right eye is a [[OccultBlueEyes bright blue]], while his left eye changes depending on his portrait alignment. Good portraits have a [[GreenEyes green eye]], Neutral a [[SupernaturalGoldEyes gold one]], and Evil a [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eye]].

Added DiffLines:

* AnAdventurerIsYou: Considerably toned down compared to most of Experience's Dungeon Crawlers. While the first game had the Gazer as something of mix of the default Fighter and Healer classes, in addition to Demon controls, with custom characters within the default classes themselves, Signa is a variable mix of Fighter, Healer, Paladin, and Samurai depending on the alignment choice, while all other possible party members are also premade characters drawing from a mix of traditional classes allowing for any character to swing into one of several roles depending on party composition, equipment, and alignment.


Added DiffLines:

* FanDisservice: Lezerem still has his tendency of stripping naked from when he was more of a {{Bishonen}}. The second postgame area takes this even further with him naked and [[TentacleRope bound by tentacles]].

Added DiffLines:

* DarkIsNotEvil: Muse and Prim are [[spoiler:the daughters of the God of Evil]], but their motives in saving the city are still pure. Though they treat [[spoiler:having to deal with assassins from the God of Good]] as a constant inconvenience (as the representative of the dragon God of Neutrality, [[ContinuityNod Fran]], is still off on her honeymoon and not doing her job mediating between Good and Evil).

* GentleGiant: Canis. He is large and intimidating, but he takes care of flowers throughout the city.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: Leo and especially Aquarius. Recruiting the latter even requires retrieving some rare sake for her.



* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Prometh continues this role from the first game by occasionally showing up half-dressed at meetings due to being NotAMorningPerson.



* MagicMusic: Starlita, the song used to gather Star Power within the various districts of the city and keep the people under Magnastar's control. The Revolution similarly uses it to free the people from said control.



* NoSenseOfDirection: Erik will get lost whenever he tries to go somewhere new. He'll also get lost whenever he tries to go somewhere familiar.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Twisted with Peg in that she's one of the smallest party members but easily becomes one of the best tanks, making her a Pint Sized StoneWall.
