* WhamShot: For most fans, the surprise was already ruined by the anime, and, without color, it's hard to tell, but [[spoiler:the first shot of the Undertaker's eyes]] in chapter 59 counts as one for at least some of the fans, and is one in-universe for the other characters.

** The Death Scythes wielded by the reapers are repeatedly said to be able to cut anything. Well, aside from each other, of course.

** Chapter 125: Much of what [[spoiler: Violet says about his involvement in the cult]] is reminiscent of something a survivor of ParentalAbuse would say. After reading this chapter, re-reading the entire arc shows that many of his scenes also have this trend.

* VictorianBritain: The Jack the Ripper arc and Ciel's birthdate and mentioned age nails the timeline down--the start of the manga/anime is around the late summer of 1888.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Ciel yes, Sebastian no, and only in the manga. Besides which, Ciel's reaction to evil he can't stomach is usually to kill more people to get rid of the problem.

*** While the simple microphones make sense as Ciel and Sebastian use the basic concept behind the technology in an earlier chapter, the glowsticks have absolutely no explanation except for Sullivan being an OmnidisciplinaryScientist. Unless those sticks hold some glowing chemicals she stumbled upon in her years of experimentation, but that's never confirmed.

* ChekhovsArmoury: Fitting for the category, the Manor Murder Case arc has one that's specifically limited to the mystery of the arc. Full list:
** Sebastianís [[spoiler: corpse]] being wet.
** Sebastian not defending Ciel [[spoiler: when the latter is accused of murder.]]
** The last thing Ciel says to Sebastian before going to bed.
** Ciel suddenly having favorite pillow that was never mentioned before.
** The fact that the audience doesnít get to see or hear what was written on the piece of paper Jeremy handed to Ciel.
** The audience seeing every corpse while Jeremy inspects them except for [[spoiler: Sebastianís.]]
** Even Jeremy taking his time going up the stairs.
** From a visual standpoint, there are lots of shots of [[spoiler: Earl Grey]]ís eyes.
** A lot of [[spoiler: Earl Grey]]'s facial expressions, especially when something shocking or dramatic happens, don't quite match up with what one would expect in the current situation.
** [[ChekhovsNews The newspaper Ciel is reading at the very beginning of the arc,]] [[BilingualBonus if you're reading in English.]] [[note]]As a manga, it's originally published in Japanese, and not all readers might be able to read the headline of the English newspaper.[[/note]]
** Earl Grey asking to play a part in Cielís upcoming mission.
** The red elixir Irene Diaz has [[spoiler: is actually a RedHerring.]]
** A '''different''' set of examples would be in the Blue Cult arc. Almost every single element Ciel uses to make his "Phantomhive Five" band a huge success is something that was mentioned in prior arcs.

Added DiffLines:

*** Even the glowsticks came from the benign, luminescent chemicals Sullivan used to draw glowing "runes" in the Green witch arc (chapter 93 shows them well). It's a harder example to note than most, because the black-and-white drawing style make it hard to tell that her writing is supposed to be glowing and most readers probably don't know that calcite (the material Sebastian identifies in the wand) can glow under the right conditions.
