Added DiffLines:

* GeniusBonus: Diyaus Pita appears to be named after [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyeus Dyews Phter]], a sky deity who is TopGod of the theoretical Proto-Indo-European pantheon.


* EnsembleDarkhorse: While the secondary God Eaters are popular, [[EyepatchOfPower Gina]] [[FriendlySniper Di]][[MysticalWhiteHair ckin]][[TheQuietOne son]] and [[CuteAndPsycho Ka]][[RoseHairedGirl non]] [[FriendlyFire Dai]][[HiddenBuxom ba]] are pretty popular among the fandom

* NamesTheSame: Sakuya Tachibana - As [[Series/KamenRiderBlade Kamen Rider Garren]], who also happens to be [[TheGunslinger the gun user]] of the show.



to:

* TheissTitillationTheory: The clothing design for a lot of the characters throughout the franchise, male ''and'' female, runs on this, though the women tend to be the most prominent examples. The lady "base commanders" in each major installment tend to ''really'' invoke the trope. Naturally, a lot of outfit options of this sort are available for your character, too.


* BrokenBase: The mobile entries tend to cause this, particularly in their native Japan, surprisingly. One side says they're a logical thing for Namco to pursue given the size the market and that the apps can introduce more potential users to the real ''GE'' games, while their detractors tend to really lambast them for drawing resources away that could be used on the main titles. The abject failure of ''Online'' (which lasted all of 19 months) takes particular heat, and ''Resonant Ops'' being turn-based (in a franchise that prides itself on fast-paced action) also does it few favors.

* NoExportForYou: Not for the game itself, but for later versions of its DLC. There is demand for it amongst its players, but D3 Publisher ''bluntly stated'' on their Facebook page that they would not bring them over to the English version due to localization issues (i.e. the third-party promotional/collaboration items).


* AntiClimaxBoss: Depending on how much you level your equipment, several threatening new Aragami can come off as this. Special mention goes to [[spoiler: the [[TrueFinalBoss World Closer]]]] in ''Rage Burst''. It doesn't really have that many attacks, the attacks it does have are not that difficult to avoid and even if they do hit you it does pitiful damage if you have the appropriate leveled equipment.



** The DLC Aragami Venus may count for this, the human parts of her are quite sexy. Too bad the rest of her body kind of ruins it.

* GameBreaker: ''God Eater 2'' and ''Rage Burst'' are notorious for this.
** The Impulse Edge is SimpleYetAwesome, being able to confront a wide variety of Aragami (from being able to bash open a Borg Camlann's shield, to being able to ruin a Quadriga's day by hitting the front treads) with relatively little difficulty.
** The infamous meteor bullet will let you deal more than 100,000 damage against the Aragami. An update patch reduce its power to half, but it's still broken.
** On the defensive side, you have the Prana control unit, which recovers your health while in burst mode. Level 1 burst doesn't heal much, but at level three you heal so much that you have to be extremely reckless just to need to use an item.
** [[SuperMode Blood]] [[UpToEleven Rage]]. Getting to it is difficult, and actually using it is a case of DifficultButAwesome, but used right, it turns your character into an unstoppable juggernaut. Even worse is if you combine it with the other [[GameBreaker Game Breakers]], since it gives you infinite OP, and reduces lag time between attacks. A definite PurposelyOverpowered aversion of PowerupLetdown.



* HarsherInHindsight: A DLC mission for ''God Eater 2'' (included in the UpdatedRerelease) titled "A Promise to be Fulfilled" features Yuno, Satsuki and BLOOD going on a picnic [[spoiler:(Or what's left of BLOOD anyway).]] It reveals that the picnic mentioned earlier in the story, which we never got to see, was interrupted because BLOOD was ordered to deploy. All of them then promised to continue the picnic some other time[[spoiler:, which makes Romeo's death and Julius's HeroicSacrifice all the more tragic.]]
* MemeticMutation: Eric! Above you! (Only in Japan)

* PolishedPort: The PC port of ''God Eater 2: Rage Burst'' runs at beyond 1080p, can run at 60 FPS, and comes with the HD remake of the first game for free.



* [[ThatOneLevel That One Quest]]:
** "Cowboy" will be this for some if they did not read the quest objectives (or read and ignored it, not taking it seriously). Here's how the quest goes, there are four mooks and one boss. The quest says only to kill the mooks. Guess what a lot of people tried to do... And that doesn't even take into account the times where the boss is dead-set on ruining your day while you just want to finish the mission properly.
** The temple where you have to kill four kongous, all of different elemental types.
** Your first attempt at the Vajra, Ouroboros, Prithvi Mata, Arda Nova, or any of the major bosses.
** Thor's Banquet. Your objective? Kill four Vajras. Alone. And they usually all spot you the very moment you leave the safe zone. Good luck.
** Suspension Bridge, from ''Rage Burst'', is a story-required four-mission expedition. Pretty standard, we seen these before - except past the first mission you have NO support, NO link system assistant, the whole time you only have one other party member ([[OverratedAndUnderleveled who is new to Rage Burst and is thus not as well trained as your usual group]]), and you have to then beat a [[LightningBruiser Chrome Gawain]] at the end, who is already a difficult fight WITHOUT having used up three missions worth of consumables beforehand. [[DifficultySpike Welcome to rank 11!]]
** ''Rage Burst'' adds the GE Festival Anniversary Pack, which has the mission, Jack in the Box. The targets are a Vajra, a Hannibal, a Marduk, and a Chrome Gawain. What makes this so ridiculous is that one, you fight them at Aegis, meaning no room to maneuvre, and two, this is a ''solo mission''. Hope you can kill them each before the others show up, otherwise...
* VillainHasAPoint: [[spoiler: Johannes von Schicksal and his Ark Project]] might be terrible for the majority of humanity and condemn them to death but as Sakaki points out, it does make sense: Aragami can never be permanently destroyed and sooner or later [[spoiler: Singularities will naturally occur as the Red Rain in ''2'' shows so it might be better if one takes the apocalypse of their own terms]]. However since those condemned would naturally include anyone who even dissent in the slightest to this plan or proves to not be "useful" or "important" enough, the main characters don't agree with this plan.

** [[SuperSpeed Blitz]] [[MeaningfulName Hannibals]]. Take a Corrosive Hannibal, bleach it's scales, and put the sucker on fast forward. If you thought the Hannibals were bad before, wait 'til you fight one that's twice as fast. Even worse, even it's projectiles travel twice as fast.
** [[TrueFinalBoss The Arius Nova]]. It's the ungodly amalgamation of a Dyaus Pita, a Sariel, and an Arda Nova, with all the damaging moves and durability that all implies. It's wide-sweeping wing attacks are liable to put you in critical condition, if you're lucky. If not, [[OneHitKill kiss your ass goodbye]].

* FunnyMoments: Meeting Emil for the first time in ''God Eater 2''. Boy howdy does he ham it up, you can decline his offer ''three times'', and he gets closer each time you turn him down! Sure, [[ButThouMust you have to accept his offer]], but his insistence only adds to the hilarity. There's also an extra funny if you hang around the scene of him walking off. [[spoiler:He falls down the flight of stairs.]]
** Later, during one of his Character Episodes, he'll ask you to punch him in the face. [[SuckerPunch You can immediately oblige before he even finishes explaining why]], laying him flat. After he gives his spiel, he'll finally ready himself for the punch, giving you three options: "Just hit him", "Hit as hard as you can", and "[[MegatonPunch Get a running start]]". The last - nay, ALL options send him flying over fifty yards, hitting rubble along the way before being forcefully stopped by a wall. Oh, and you can uppercut him off the platform afterwards.



* GoddamnBats: In early missions, the goddamn Chi-You and its goddamn damage-resistant legs and its goddamn fast-startup melee attacks that also let it move across the map quickly. Nowhere near [[DemonicSpiders Demonic Spider]] status since it remains killable and doesn't hit too hard, but still highly irritating.
