  • Alas, Poor Villain: Gogandantess and also Hideyoshi.
  • Complete Monster: Munenori from Dawn of Dreams. He attacked his own family, the Yagyu clan because he thought his grandfather killed his mother, which was his Start of Darkness. When Munenori's niece reveals that his mother actually gave her life to save him, and his grandfather had nothing to do with it, Munenori is initially taken aback. Then, he starts to laugh, and reveals he doesn't care what happened in his past, he will continue to be evil.
    • Mitsunari qualifies as well. Not only did he spearhead the Genma research that led to the creation of the Genma Trees and caused the entire country to be swept into chaos, he invited the demon Claudius to inhabit his body, willingly as opposed to being possessed, and as a result it became impossible to tell where one ended and the other began. Unlike Hideyoshi, whose grand delusions were stroked by the Genma Triumvirate, or Luis Frois, who began researching the Genma purely out of curiosity only to end up being possessed by Rosencratz, Mitsunari knew exactly what he was doing, and he wanted it to happen. It's enough to make one doubt he was ever human in the first place.
    • Many of the Genma classify, since they see humans as nothing more than food. However Guildenstern, Ginghamphatts and Jujudormah also take the cake.
  • Contested Sequel: Dawn Of Dreams.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Pick a game. Any game.
  • Demonic Spiders: Many Genma, except for the basic zombie grunt, are this, especially in Dawn of Dreams in the Demonic Realms, where you'll find lots of nasty Ninja, Giant Mooks and Invisible Monsters and no sense of Mook Chivalry. Airborne Mooks are particularly bad since most characters lack the appropriate means to deal with them.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Vega Donna and the younger version of Jujudormah (before she became a Villainous Glutton).
    • Hecuba in her true form could also count
    • Don't you forget Ophelia/Yodo...
  • Game Breaker: Dawn of Dreams introduces the ability to do chain attacks off level 1 magic attacks, rendering many other ways of starting a chain effectively pointless. This addition also makes level 2 and 3 magic far less useful by comparison.
  • High Octane Nightmare Fuel: From being turned into a demon to the brutal slaughter of innocent Parisians, these games are full of it.
    • The former village in Kyushu in Dawn of Dreams: Heavy rain, ravens and nothing but lots of awful-looking zombies all around, feeding on corpses. Yuk.
    • Have we forgotten about the doll from the xbox version? The horrifying floating partially broken nearly invincible bell ringing monstrosity.
    • The genma trees in the fourth game. And then you find out what they're made of. That horrible, tortured screaming...
  • Moral Event Horizon: Although she's highly unpleasant to begin with, Jujudormah crosses this when she slits Takajo's throat while Jubei watches.
    • Even though he was already a literal demon by the time it happened, it bears mentioning that Nobunaga actually did burn down the temples at Mt. Hiei in Real Life, so he qualifies for this both in the games and in the eyes of many historians. In fact, this act is one of the main reasons he receives a Historical Villain Upgrade anywhere he appears.
    • Destroying the beautiful Mont Saint-Michel, along with all its imprsoned monks and pilgrims with your flying castle is bad enough, Vega Donna. But then you decide to use your BFG to wipe out the crumbling remains and any survivors? It's on.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: In the first game, breaking the genma barrier. Sure, you need the right equipments (Great Bow and Great Arrow), which involved two Fetch Quest and a Boss Battle. The mundane? Just fire the Great Arrow using the Great Bow. The awsome? It was a cutscene, and it was shown from every angle possible, and we haven't even mentioned the music.
  • Narm: The voice acting and dialogue. Oh, the voice acting and dialogue.
    • But, for some, that's all part of the series' charm.
    • GIANT PANDA SUIT!
    • Ekei's ridiculous-looking superimposed "tears" during his My Greatest Failure flashback in the second game.
    • "You're too late Jubei. I've just transferred my power into this golden evil statue!"
  • WTH? Casting Agency - Jean Reno playing Jacques Blanc ?
    • What's wrong with that ?
    • To be fair, Jacques was intentionally designed to look like him, just how Samonosuke was intentionally designed to look like his actor, Takeshi Kaneshiro.
    • Except they didn't let Jean Reno voice Jacques's English dialogue, which is over 90% of his dialogue. How awesome would it have been to hear Jean's smooth French accentented English while you're playing as him? The fact he's speaking his own French lines is weak compensation.
      • This troper remembers reading that due to his busy schedule, Reno couldn't do the english voice acting, so the developers had to get another actor.
      • This troper heard it cost more the more lines he had to read. So they settled for French but not English.
    • He's really popular in Japan. They think he's sexy.
    • Also, the person who voices him? Paul Mercier, who, like Reno, voiced a different Leon.
