* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: When Ryouta first ran into Taira in Episode 3, he's understandably hesitant to team up at first, because it would mean they'd have to kill more people to get off the island. He tells Taira to show him what bombs he has, but Taira tells him if he does that, it'll breed mistrust between them, which would cause problems later. Ryouta thinks about it for a moment, then concludes it's a logical argument, so he joins unconditionally.
** Later in the episode Ryota spots a woman getting to a parachute supply drop before him, only to see her get blown up by a trap laid by another person. When Taira catches up, Ryota tells him what happened, and says risking their lives for food isn't worth it. But Taira tells him that if they don't at least try, they may end up facing someone who is fighting on a full stomach, while they themselves are starving, and therefore less physically and mentally prepared to counterattack. Ryota once again agrees and they decide to run towards a parachute drop which doesn't seem to have been spotted yet.
** Miyamoto, the muscular guy with the knife, is a former mercenary, so doesn't need to rely on the game's functions as heavily as Ryota does. In episode 7, he uses tracking skills to follow Ryota back to where Himiko and Taira were at, and also uses a [[KnifeNut knife]] more than bombs to kill other players with. He also booby traps a door in the event Ryota somehow makes it there, [[spoiler: where Himiko is currently being held.]]
** Ryota himself is forced to utilize this trope in order to survive his many fights. Whereas he's clearly no match whatsoever in a straight up fight with Miyamoto, he knows a lot about the game, and utilizes those skills to gain the upper hand during his fight with him in episode 7.

* DisproportionateRetribution: Much like ''HellGirl'', you have to wonder how many people actually deserved to be "selected" for this game.

* InterfaceSpoiler: The manga appears to wrap itself up once a plan is to escape is hatched, after Ryota is taught how to [[spoiler: manually disable the BIMs to prevent them from being used against Tyrannos staff]] until you realize that only 20 (roughly half) of the Island Survivors have been revealed so far. This nifty tidbit, is always introduced at the beginning of each manga volume.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: After returning from the island, Date tells his colleague that it seems stupid to save people after having participated in the Game (and having become very rich in the process), and that he wants to quit the medical profession. In response, his colleague angrily lets him know what he (and the other doctors) really think about Date:
-->'''Date's colleague''': Is that it? You came back to show off your new wealth? We work day and night to save people... and now you make fun of us?
-->'''Date''': No... I'm not...
-->'''Date's colleague''': I could never stand you before. With a prestigious father in the medical community, how many fucking bribes have you taken!? This world is unfair enough, and you decide to just quit!? What a joke!! Don't look down on doctors!! <Belches> I don't ever... want to see your face again.

* MegaCorp: Tyrannos, the company that developed Btooom! They have their own private island, kidnap dozens of people around Japan and send them over, recruit a team of PrivateMilitaryContractors to keep them in line on the plane ride, and arrange for daily supply airdrops over the course of each game. Not to mention some of the BIMs and the IC Chips are very advanced technology: the implosion and shield BIMs are things we are not even close to being able to develop in real life.

to:

* MeaningfulName: NamedAfterSomeoneFamous: Many of the characters are named after famous figures in Japanese history and literature. For example there's [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oda_Nobunaga Oda]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Date_Masamune Date]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murasaki_Shikibu Murasaki Shiki]], Miyamoto Masashi (see below), [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taira_clan Taira]] (who is directly compared to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tokugawa_Ieyasu "the old tanuki"]]), and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Himiko Himiko]].
