Awesome / Catherine

Go To

  • True Ending of the original game's Cheater Route: Vincent becomes an Incubus. Credits show him kicking all kinds of Netherworld ass, and the final clip shows Vincent with full ram horns sitting on a throne, with Catherine, and dozens of others like her at each limb, all announcing various lustful things about him and his awesomeness. The deal is sealed by the fact that Nergal IS HIS THRONE.
    • Made even more awesome by the fact that he took over the Netherworld in his underwear. That right there is all sorts of badass.
    • It's notable in its own way that, after so much fumbling around women, Vincent is perfectly at ease surrounded by the other succubi, and while Catherine acknowledges they are "wrapped around his finger", he doesn't respond to their advances, merely allowing them to fawn over him while he clearly only has eyes for Catherine, who he keeps snuggled against the whole time.
  • Vincent's challenge to Boss/Thomas Mutton. Erica even comments on it.
    • Slightly before that, Boss/Thomas Mutton threatens Vincent with more nightmares for pushing the issue. Instead of backing down, Vincent threatens to stab him to death.
      • The very fact that he threatened to stab a god to death, and that, one would assume immortal, god was scared of him speaks volumes.
  • The fact that the game over theme is Sarasate's "Zigeunerweisen" is awesome by virtue.
  • More of a meta-example, but if you, the player, can beat all stages of Babel, all of which are much harder than the other levels, you are definitely a master of Catherine.
    • Which is made even more awesome with the following cutscene, where Trisha, AKA Ishtar, the babylonic goddess of love, puts on her best look and "rewards" the player.
  • After completing the Torture Chamber (Stage 3) and the boss is dying:
    Vincent: Suck it!!
    • Which overlaps with Funny Moments when you remember that said boss is the infamous conjoined, lustful lovers monster.
  • Vincent fearlessly telling off Mutton/Dumuzid at the end of the Final Stage.
    Vincent: ...From now on, my life is my own!!
  • Even though it was a dream and she was never pregnant in the first place, you have to give Katherine props for climbing the tower while in heels and apparently with child.

  • When continuing, Vincent will sometimes say "Now's not the time to be dead." So. Manly.
  • On a overall level, despite Vincent apparently not being so great dealing with relationship issues, him being a Determinator when things go wrong to the point of the other sheep eventually looking up to him as a leader.
  • The True Neutral Ending. Vincent realizes that he can't truly commit to either woman, and promises to improve on himself first and pursue his dreams of space tourism, which he gets the chance to after winning big on a wrestling match.
  • Full Body's New ending for Catherine; Instead of Vincent taking over Netherworld, Catherine manages to travel back in time to Vincent's high school days, getting his attention first and subsequently keeping the whole mess that caused the game's events from happening.

  • Meta example: the developers of the Catherine: Full Body remake acknowledging that the multiplayer aspect is being made with the competitive community in mind shows how much Atlus pay attention to the community of a smaller, less mainstream game and is further rewarding for several key members who put significant time and effort into helping the community grow despite the original game's lack of online multiplayer and keeping the game in the spotlight years after release.
  • Another meta: Ah... remember those days in the late 2000's when there's this voice actor known as Troy Baker, who has an awesome voice and became so popular in voicing anime-based games he started branching into western medias and found his great popularity there after at one point he did Vincent? These days, he rarely did anime-based roles, so maybe Atlus would attempt to cut cost for the game's remake, just like Bandai Namco in Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition, so I guess we would have to bear for a replacement and hope it's good... NOT! Atlus managed the impossible, Troy Baker is back as Vincent!
