* ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' changes perspective and narrators so often it can be confusing and it is a big cause of [[MindScrew mind screwing]]. This becomes especially confusing later on when it is revealed that you only can trust what [[spoiler: the detective narrates, which is Battler in EP 1-4 and Erika in EP 5-6]].
