* ICouldaBeenAContender: It's revealed that Konakawa originally [[spoiler:wanted to be a filmmaker when he was younger]], but got feet of clay. He does his best not to even think about this trope, but it's expressed nonverbally for much of the film because it's the root of his anxiety.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Loaded with it. Especially crucial in [[spoiler: making the revelation of Chiba's love for Tokita not seem out of the blue. She never goes through the typical tropes that would indicate she liked him that are common in anime such as the LuminescentBlush or [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend He Is Not My Boyfriend]], but there are three crucial things that lead up to it, like the fact that she seems a wee bit obsessed with him at times, that her avatar looks like the way a child of her and Tokita would look, and when she talks with Osanai outside of the office (telling him she suspects Himuro is not the culprit but the victim, and that someone else on the inside is involved). Also, see Chiba's reaction when Konakawa pays more attention to her than to Tokita when Tokita is talking enthusiastically about how he invented the DC Mini. Her harsh criticism of his childishness and comments about his weight and overeating are exaggerated exactly because she's in denial about being really attracted to him. She isn't prepared to admit it to herself until the end of the movie when Paprika comments how Chiba is finally being true to herself by going after Tokita above all else]].

* {{Leitmotif}}: "Nigeru Mono", which first plays during the opening credits, acts as Paprika's theme and [[ThemeMusicPowerUp signals her appearance]].

** Paprika is flying on a cloud with a staff in her hand, just like Son Goku in DragonBall.
** The backround music where Konakawa is running from Osanai is a remixed version of Paranoia Agent's opening theme.
