** To elaborate: [[spoiler:You're fighting [[BiggerBad the original Eve]] that lives inside of [[LongLostRelative Maya's]] body. And to further drive the knife home, Eve lets Aya "chat with" her. The song starts playing when Maya speaks, [[AlternateIdentityAmnesia confused about where she is,]] and only remembering [[ArcWords her body growing hot]] while she was in the car with her mom. [[RecognitionFailure She doesn't even recognize Aya all grown up,]] and is worried about getting home to her and her parents. [[SplitPersonalityTakeover And then she screams about the heat coming back.]] The song doesn't stop playing as Eve [[SarcasmMode apologizes for cutting the reunion short]] and when Aya is ready to kill her, she reminds her that [[ParasitePuppeteer it's still her sister's body.]] The song doesn't stop, being overlapped with the typical boss theme for Eve, as a [[PlayerPunch reminder]] of [[StakingTheLovedOne what you're forced to do.]]]]

*CompleteMonster:
** [[BigBad Mitochondria Eve-2]] is a sadistic collection of sentient mitochondria who formed into a singular, powerful figure. Having materialized in Maya Brea's kidney after being transplanted into actress Melissa Pearce, she later takes over her body by killing competing mitochondria and attaching to her cells. She plans to us Melissa to give birth to the [[UltimateLifeForm Ultimate Being]], a lifeform far more powerful than her with the power to instantly destroy humankind. Taking complete control over Melissa's body during an opera performance, she causes everyone's cells to [[SpontaneousHumanCombustion burn up and combust]]. Knowing that [[PlayerCharacter Aya Brea]] is after her, she uses her powers to turn animals, both alive and undead, into vicious monsters to kill her. Working with [[TheDragon Hans Klamp]], she has him create special sperm to help her give birth, later having him gather up a group of people--including Daniel's ex-wife and son (though he ends up escaping)--to Central Park, where she [[ImMelting melts them into a slime]] and has it hide in the sewers to later serve as her uterus. Having made Manhattan a complete ghost town due to her actions causing a widespread evacuation, she later raids the police station, having her mutated animals [[CopKiller murder]] and injure the surviving cops. Obtaining a sample of Klamp's mitochondria-free sperm, she later gives birth to the [[FinalBoss Ultimate Being]], tempting Aya to join her in her cause before trying to kill her after she refuses.
** The aforementioned [[MadScientist Hans Klamp]] is an anti-social [[MisanthropeSupreme misanthrope]] working with Eve-2 on her plan to eradicate humanity and allow mitochondria to take over, [[ANaziByAnyOtherName seeing them as superior to humans]]. As a teenage intern at St. Francis Hospital, he transplanted Maya Brea's kidney and cornea into Melissa and Aya before getting fired over selling patient records. Partnering with Eve-2, he removes mitochondria from his own sperm to allow Eve-2 to easily give birth to the Ultimate Being, prideful to be involved in its creation. He later invites people on an HLA list to a play in Central Park, where they are turned into slime by Eve-2 to be used as her uterus, causing the deaths of many, including Daniel's ex-wife Lorraine, with his son, Benjamin, escaping just in time. When Aya discovers his plans, he tries to kill her with a scalpel. [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled Refusing to face arrest]], Hans orders Eve-2 to burn him, [[VirtueIsWeakness chastising Aya for wanting to save him]]. Before his death, Hans engineered Maya's body to unleash another Eve once Eve-2 gives birth to the Ultimate Being, starting the plan all over again should Eve-2 not succeed.


* TheWoobie: From what we learn of her, Melissa Pierce. She was an IllGirl since her youth and all the way up to adulthood was hooked up on medication. Despite that, she struggled to become an opera singer and had to share her part with someone else. And then on her opening night, she was taken over by Eve thanks to [[spoiler:a kidney transplant supplied by Maya back in her youth as well as further medication by Klamp that would make her body even more susceptible to [[DemonicPossession Mitochondria Possession]]]].

* BrutalBonusLevel: Chrysler Building, which can be accessible in NewGamePlus, has seventy plus floors, all of which are like mazes. And to top it all off, it has ''no {{Save Point}}s''.

* FirstInstallmentWins: The first game is still generally regarded as the best of the series.



* NauseaFuel: The BodyHorror mutations looks sick, in both [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome good]] ''and'' bad ways.



* SignatureScene: Contenders are the disastrous opera scene in the beginning of the game, Aya confronting the pregnant Eve in the museum, or/and [[spoiler:Aya vs. Maya in the Chrysler Building]].
* SignatureSong: "Primal Eyes", with "Kyrie" in second place.



* ThatOneBoss: [[spoiler: Fighting Maya isn't terribly difficult until you start to whittle her HP down. She can perform several kicks that you can't avoid at all and she can also do a charged up flying tackle that is both unavoidable AND doubles as an HPToOne move. What's even worse is due to the game employing CollisionDamage, if you get stuck on top of her after her tackle attack ends, you can take additional damage and possibly die. When Maya has her helpers summoned, attacking her has a second helper appear that heals her for 1000 HP and additional healing raises it by an extra 1000 points ([[GuideDangIt And good luck figuring that one out]]). You NEED Auto Heal and plenty of Medicine 3 and 4 to be able to survive the fight since your turns will never come up fast enough to let you heal yourself manually.]]
