** Huang Di. Possesses a passive that grants pierce Phys ''and'' grants 20% increase to hit rate with two good physical attacks naturally, plus no weaknesses means that it is a solid demon all around. The only problem is that A) he's a Gacha exclusive and B) He's a 5 star, which has very low rates. Even worse is the fact that ''all'' the archetypes you can pull him are good, even coming with good Gacha skills. Common grants him "Life Aid"[[note]]Heals about a third of his hp after clearing a wave[[/note]], Aragami grants "Berserker God"[[note]] a slightly stronger physical attack than his unique, which also costs less[[/note]] and "Auto-Taraka"[[note]]Casts Tarukaja on the first turn of a fight[[/note]], Protector grants "Salvation" [[note]] Heals everyone and cures all status aliments[[/note]] and Null Physical (thus making him a superior to Ose), Psychic grants an immunity to charm and "Serial Killer"[[note]]multi target attacks do 10% more damage[[/note]], and Elementalist grants Repel Light and "Infernal Mask"[[note]]60% reduced chance of getting afflicted with a status ailment[[/note]]. All options good one way or another, either in PVP or PVE.

** Spirit infusion. Since, due to the progress of the game, some demons are naturally left behind, now there's an option to sacrifice duplicates of certain demons to infuse them with extra upgrades to boost their parameters and make them viable again. It takes up to six copies of a demon to fully upgrade it, but once it's done, they can become outright monsters - for instance, a fully upgraded Alice gets her Dark damage boosted by 15%, all Dark moves reduced in cost, and gets two more castings of ''Die For Me!''.

** The inability to turn off Auto-Talk during Auto-Quest. See, at the end of a talk, demons will often ask for something before joining your party. Often, they'll only ask for tiny amounts of Macca or Magnetite. Sometimes, however, they'll ask for precious Revival Beads, Magic Reflectors or even obscene amounts of HP. When auto-questing, you will ''always'' accept the request. This can end up with players running out of revival items and getting killed for a bunch of Slimes after a levelling session.

Added DiffLines:

** Beelzebub in Aura Gate 2 floor 20. He spams Gluttony with Dark Pierce (weak), constantly ravaging your party's HP and healing himself, punctuated every now and then with Sea of Chaos, an Almighty attack that lowers Defense. He has no weakness, is immune to Light and Dark, and resists Physical, Wind and Electricity. When you manage to harm him enough, he will break out a single-use move to restore almost all of his HP. And when you manage to bring him down again, he stops using Gluttony... and switches over to Gluttony+, which hits harder and lets him eat more of your demons' HP, making it all the more hellish to keep his HP down and your demons alive.


* UncannyValley: Hollows in Aura Gate 2 are spirits that have slowly begun to develop humanity, but are still fundamentally incomplete. They are easily swayed and have... ''issues'' communicating. For instance, a Hollow woman asks you to find her child in a dangerous area. When they meet, it's a joyful reunion... only to be revealed they're ''not'' mother and child - you can find their real relatives dead nearby, and they have no idea each is not who they believe is.

Added DiffLines:

** Dante☆, largely because of two of his fixed skills. Rapid Shot puts him into a state of Might if he manages to connect with a regular attack. Million Stab gains Phys Pierce if Dante☆ is in a state of Might. As long as he's able to hit one enemy with a physical attack and none of them have any Pierce-nullifying skills, he can lay waste to groups of enemies in short order.
** Nero☆ comes with the skill Overture, which is a powerful, self-sufficient skill. Hitting all enemies and putting the user in a state of Concentrate would be strong enough, but Overture also has Elec Pierce. There are few groups that can withstand an assault from Nero☆.


** The team combination of Zaou-Gongen and Hell Biker. Zaou-Gongen has the passive "Kongo Zaou", which grants ''anyone'' under the effect of Rebellion to pierce Physical resistances (with exception to repel phys teams with Aliat). Combined with Hell Biker's "Red Zone", which grants the effect of Rebellion to ''the whole party'', and Phys teams will be demolishing teams with no means to counter the set up. Notably, [[spoiler:Jeng Yun]] abuses this setup to brutal effect in Chapter 7A-11.

*** Sleipnir in floor 38. It has high Agi and the skill Speedster, which means it will always go first and start spamming Mahamaon. Combined with Light Boost, Light Pierce, and the generally inflated stats for bosses, this means that Mahamaon will hurt a lot. Not surprising it can kill an unprepaeed party before they can even act.

** A ritual that is normally very complex and requires a lot of study is simulated by a computer, making it incredibly easy to use. The Demon Summoning Program, or [[spoiler:Vantias simulating the Dragon Stream]]?

* FridgeBrilliance: At the start of the game, your character laments the lack of excitement in their life only to be dragged in the latest [=SMT=] conflict. However, the people that you meet are all appropriate, as they are all associated with entertainment in some capacity: a web video maker, a horror movie fan, a light novel author, a gifted graphic artist etc. [[TasteTheRainbow In other words, you get to meet a plethora of people who each break away from monotony and boredom in different ways.]]

** Remove you limes [[labelnote:Explanation]] Due to above mentioned BlindIdiotTranslation, the compendium on the demon Reiko Kashima had the line "remove your limbs" mangled into that, spawning jokes about how she was going to kill you by giving you scurvy.[[/labelnote]]
