Miracles Within the Netherworld, one can obtain Glory, which represents the majesty of God. In the World of Shadows you can learn Miracles by using Glory. ​Miracles are considered miraculous deeds that alter the world's providence, and the types of Miracles range from those that give an advantage in Netherworld exploration and battles against demons, to those that affect conversation, fusion, skill affinity, and growth.​ Collect Glory, learn Miracles, and strengthen the protagonist.​ Some Miracles can be turned on or off at will.

While it is activated, you are undetectable by all but a few demons on the field, and when you encounter a demon, the demon disappears, and combat will be avoided.​ Essence Fusion When exploring Da'at, you may obtain an “Essence,” a spirit that is a copy of a demon's abilities. Essences exist for each demon and contain the demon's skills and affinity resistances. By fusing it with the protagonist, you will be able to change the protagonist’s skills or affinity resistances.​ Essences can also be fused with demons, and skills can be freely replaced, excluding unique skills. ​ Subquest Demons and characters in the field requests help in “Subquests”, which, if completed, will reward the user with various rewards. There are a wide variety of subquests, such as those where you "take control of a demon," as well as "timed quests" which must be completed within a certain number of moon phases. In addition to events that occur in Da'at, subquests may also occur in real Tokyo.
