* ThatWomanIsDead: [[spoiler:This what Bernkastel's statement in red "Ange Ushiromiya dies without fail in 1998" in [=EP8=] manga really meant. After returning to her future, Ange decides that the Ange who is obsessed with the past has to die to give birth to a new Ange who looks into the bright future. Ange then abandons the Ushiromiya name and becomes an author under the name Yukari Kotobuki.]]

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Towards the end of [=EP4=], [[spoiler:as punishment for breaking the rule of keeping her true identity secret, Ange had her body plucked from behind bit by bit with painful tools that picked at her flesh as they twisted and tore it off until she was nothing but a pile of meat scraps.]] Battler is understandably pissed off at this.



* DramaticIrony: The audience knows from the outset that "Gretel" is Battler's little sister from the future, Ange. TheReveal is suitably shocking to Battler.



* GameBreaker: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]]. The reason for the condition of not telling her name to Battler is that Lamdadelta considered her as this. She wasn't far from being right considering the effect of [[spoiler: her HeroicSacrifice.]]

* HeroicSacrifice: As a last-ditch effort to snap Battler out of the funk caused by [[spoiler:him finding out that Asumu isn't his mother]] in [=EP4=].

* HeroicSacrifice: As a last-ditch effort to snap Battler out of the funk caused by [[spoiler:him finding out that Asumu isn't his mother]] in [=EP4=].[=EP4=], [[spoiler:Ange reveals herself as his little sister from the future who has always been waiting for him to return home]]. By the rules of the game, [[spoiler:Ange is then brutally ripped to shreds and thrown out of the game board]].



* LastRequest: In [=EP4=], right after her HeroicSacrifice, she only asks Battler to make sure to win the game and return home to where his little sister is.



* LongLostRelative: Although TheReveal is suitably shocking to Battler, the audience knows it from the outset.


Added DiffLines:

* SorryThatImDying: After her HeroicSacrifice in [=EP4=], Ange apologizes to Battler for in the end not having been able to help him in the game as much as she would have liked.


Added DiffLines:

* TongueTied: In [=EP4=], Ange is brought to the Rokkenjima game board by Bernkastel, but she's forbidden from telling Battler her true identity because Lambdadelta thought that it could make Ange too much of an advantage for the anti-fantasy side. [[spoiler:When she does spell out the truth, CruelAndUnusualDeath ensues.]]

* {{Expy}}: Some EpilepticTrees have popped up that he's supposed to be a redoing of one of the [[TheMenInBlack Yamainu]] named Hibari 13 (An odd one, as in the game, he was a character without a sprite), due to his name, which is made with the kanji for "Thirteen." And when Hibari 13's appearance was confirmed in Matsuribayashi-hen Manga volume 7 guess who...
** His outfit and appearance also bear a striking resemblance to [[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou Sho Minamimoto]].

* OlderThanHeLooks: If he really was the Amainu codenamed "Hibari 13" in ''Higurashi''. set in 1983, even if he was the youngest member of the group it'd be improbable for him to be younger than mid-thirties by 1998. And even without that, his substantial curriculum as a soldier and mercenary shows that he can't be that young. This would make his flirting with Ange even creepier.

* AmbiguouslyHuman: If you take a pro-fantasy perspective, she is the human form of the witch Featherine Augustus Aurora. If you take an anti-fantasy perspective, she's a normal mystery writer. However, she appears in the epilogue, which takes place in the 2030s, looking like she hasn't aged a day since 1998 and calling herself a witch. This may support the idea that she is really not human.



* OlderThanSheLooks: In the Epilogue, [[spoiler:Ange]] [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] that even though Tooya is supposed to be much older than her (and [[spoiler:Ange]] is in her late 40s or 50s by that time), she naturally looks like a young woman. It may support the idea that she is really not human.

* KnowNothingKnowItAll: How she comes across in [=EP8=], especially in the manga. She refuses to accept the version of the Ushiromiya Family presented to her, exclaiming over and over again they were not like this. [[spoiler:Battler]], who created this board, asks how she could really know what they were like since she was a six-year-old the last time she saw all of her family together, and that [[spoiler: all her knowledge of the family comes from SilentScapegoat Eva, CreepyChild Maria's diary, and everything else was provided by nasty gossip and slander. She's basically let her bitterness warp her perception of the Ushiromiyas, even if pretty much all of them have done things that make their image absolutely justified.]]

* NobodyTouchesTheHair: It's actually not so much her hair that she's sensitive about, but rather the hair ornaments, which are her main momentos of Battler. The effect is the same in the manga, though.

* StoryBreakerPower: [[spoiler:Her witch powers evolve into this near the end of the eighth arc during the fight with Bernkastel. Just like Battler's fervent denial of the existence of magic affords him [[AntiMagic Endless Nine]], Ange's [[IRejectYourReality refusal to accept everyone's deaths]] causes her to realize her power as the Witch of Resurrection and [[BackForTheFinale bring every character back]], even making them immune to the [[LanguageOfTruth red truths]] that stated that they died. This culminates in a unified assault that [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu finally defeats Bernkastel]].]]

* BigBrotherAttraction: Some fans interpret her affection for Battler this way. It makes some sense: she only knew Battler at an age where you don't really make a difference between [[TheFourLoves the different kinds of "love"]], and since he only visited her on her birthdays their brother/sister relationship was probably not that deep. Some bonus material such as [[http://umineko.wikia.com/wiki/Butterfly_Kiss_Episode1.5%E9%85%8D%E5%B8%83%E3%83%A1%E3%83%83%E3%82%BB%E3%83%BC%E3%82%B8%E3%83%9A%E3%83%BC%E3%83%91%E3%83%BC this one]] don't really help.

** Though bonus materials play at this, however, this is actually subverted - Ange does not have romantic feelings for Battler in the original novel, and actually felt peaceful looking at Beatrice's earnest feelings for Battler in Episode 6.

She let him stay with her until he got better and gave him the name Tooya. They soon became close and bonded over their love for mystery novels. By the time of the epilogue, they are still living together.]]

They were given to her by Battler, who won them from a crane machine game, and despite how cheap they look she still wears them in memory of him.
