* HumansAreWhite: Almost entirely averted in this movie, in that it avoids the typical Western-looking idealized art style other anime typically uses; though all four of the pop-idol (or ''former'' pop idol) girls in this story have slightly larger-than-realistic eyes and look a bit paler-skinned than most, no one else is the least bit Westernized, and everyone mostly looks like actual Japanese people, with brown-to-black hair and pale yellowish-bronze skin and slightly squinted eyes. One shot of a highly-stylized drawing of anime girl with enormous eyes and pink hair on the sliding-glass front door of a store in one scene seems to be intended to mock this trope, as it immediately slides aside to contrast her with three minor realistically-drawn Japanese guys who look ''nothing'' like her at all.

Added DiffLines:

* YouHaveFailedMe: Mentioned in passing and briefly shown. [[spoiler:While giving her little ReasonYouSuckSpeech to Mima, Rumi mentions how the "real" Mima's fans will do any favor she asks of them, and notes that "Of course, Me-Mania screwed that last one up ever so slightly..." Just a bit earlier, when Mima is trying to call Tadokoro, we see him lying dead with his eyes gouged out - next to Me-Mania, who's also lying there dead from being stabbed in the eye. Apparently, neither Rumi nor the "real" Mima approved of Me-Mania's failed rape-and-murder attempt.]]

** Not so in the English dub, where [[spoiler: the line is "I'm the real thing" and said in Mima's normal voice.]] Given as the dub is otherwise accurate, it seems they just didn't catch that nuance. The dubbers also apparently overlooked [[spoiler: the driver's hair in the foreground of the shot, which doesn't have any of Mima's stray locks curling out from it. While Rumi and Mima are both shown elsewhere in the film to be dark brunettes (as are a great many Japanese people in general, in fact), Rumi's hair is always slicked down straight while Mima's tends to splay out a bit in front as one can see in the mirror's reflection. What the implications of this are, given that Rumi's voice was also the one singing Mima's solo at the beginning of the movie, is left for those of us in the audience to decide.]]

* BlandNameProduct: A "Niken" camera appears early on, but a "Nikon F4" camera shows up later. The Niken is actually an in-universe example, and only appears on the set of ''Double Bind''; the Nikon is the photographer's own camera.

* {{Determinator}}: Mima has always been this; she wanted to be an idol since she was little, and now that she's succeeded she wants to get out of her comfort zone and become an actress. Even in the middle of SanitySlippage she is giving her best performance, which everyone recognizes.

* MindScrew: Until the climax, which partially serves as a MindScrewdriver, until the WhamLine. It gets worse when you notice [[spoiler:Mima was singing her solo at the beginning in Rumiís voice]].

* DubInducedPlotHole: In the final WhamLine, [[spoiler:Mima's expression of "I'm the real one!" is said in Rumi's voice, giving the viewer one final MindScrew as to whether it truly is Mima or not. This is lost in the dub where not only is the line changed to the less intimidating "I'm the real thing!", but it is also said in Mima's voice.]]
