- Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The first time you run into Heroman (no, not that Heroman), which is guaranteed to elicit a "what the fuck" the first time you see him. Even Gig is caught off guard by how silly he is. See Video Game Cruelty Potential for more.
- Complete Monster: Hawthorne, Thuris, Kanan, Lobo, King Strauss VIII. Almost everyone in the Demon Path (especially Revya).
- Counterpart Comparison: Ill Girl Euphoria looks like an older bovine Castille, Endorph's sister from Phantom Brave who was also an ill girl. Depending on how you see it, Endorph/Walnut eventually falling for and marrying Euphoria can lead to some rather Unfortunate Implications.
- Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: The Demon Path is about the last place you might expect this, but if you lose the last battle of said path, you get the 'good' ending where Gig recovers from his brainwashing and returns to his duties as a Master of Death. The heroes seal Revya into the now empty Onyx Blade. Inside, your character meets... Danette, who decided to join your character, not wanting you to suffer alone despite everything you did, and then sings your character to sleep using a lullaby your character would sing to her when they were kids.
- Thorndyke and Penn reuniting after he thought Penn died when he was just a toddler. Also counts as a Tear Jerker. Penn showing that he's more mature than you think when he decides not to live with his dad because he didn't want to ruin his little brother's future and he was happy with the Nereids... Just plain touching.
- The Levin ending. Either gender is considered one, but female Revya's Levin ending deserves special mention, especially when she sees a pretty flower and Levin tries to say that it's nowhere near as pretty as her, but can't exactly get the words out. Awwwww...
- Crowning Music of Awesome: This game is just full of masterpieces to say the least.
- Fridge Horror: So, while playing the game, you have heard about Crimson Tears and seen them a bit often. Then at some point, you learn that by giving up their life, Danette's parents become those to save her. While that is fine by itself, when you add up that to the other stuff that happens... Did Thuris get his many, many Crimson Tears from his fanatical followers who would gladly give their lives? And it's mentioned that it cost a lot to have a Crimson Tear made. And Yesterwind, sells a lot of children and Orviska is their best buyer. And coincidentally, the real Dio has Crimson Tears as well. The more you think about it, the less you wonder why they have such a bad reputation.
- Game Breaker: Gideons.
- Gestahl in the Demon Path.
- Also, Hades' Despair rooms; their Outer Limit decor not only negates the penalty for having low stamina -- one of the game's primary limiting mechanics -- but causes you to gain a percentage to your stats equal to the percentage of stamina you've lost. Typical decors give you a 20% stat bonus in exchange for a hefty drawback; Hades' Despair gives you a bonus that can approach 100%, with additional advantages, letting you easily curbstomp otherwise equal groups. Oh, and it makes it so you die if your stamina ever reaches 0, but that's easy to avoid.
- High Octane Nightmare Fuel: The Demon Path.
- It Was His Sled: The Demon Path is...infamous.
- Love to Hate: Gig.
- Magnificent Bastard: Raksha, also responds to 'Levin'. Those filler sidequests are his Scheme.
- Moral Event Horizon: The best example would be the Demon Path.
- Most Annoying Sound: Pinot's voice in the Demon Path, especially her "Demon Spawn!"
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: The build-up to Endorph's final Psycho Burgundy is excellent, but the impact was never shown.
- Shocking Swerve: The Demon Path, to put it lightly.
- Tear Jerker: Quite a few examples here. One good example would be Shauna's Death.
- Viewer Gender Confusion: Kanan. An unusual case, everyone refers to him with female pronouns and he has the same class as all female Dracons. Basically, it's not just the viewers are confused about this one.
- Woolseyism: It's doubtful that the Take That to John Romero during the Asagi fight was there in the Japanese version...
