* ''ProfessorLaytonAndTheCuriousVillage'':
** The eponymous village has a secret, though it isn't dark - [[spoiler:nearly all the inhabitants are robots, and the village itself is designed to keep Baron Reinhold's daughter Flora safe until a suitable caretaker appears for her.]]
** The second game had a town with a secret too: [[spoiler: the village of Folsense (and maybe the townspeople) is one giant hallucination]].
** The trend continues into the third game: [[spoiler: Future London isn't London from the future at all, it's a city in the present located underground the actual London.]]
** Even crossovers that feature Layton aren't exempt; ''ProfessorLaytonVsAceAttorney'' features [[spoiler: the quaint little town of Labyrinthia, which turns out to be a government project to test a hypnotic solution that brainwashes its denizens to think magic and witches exist.]] It's practically tradition by now for this trope to be applied to the Layton franchise.
