!! Non-Tropes * In Chapter 4, the name of Rosa's clothing shop, Anti-Rosa, is mentioned, as well as its slogan. A quick google search reveals a blog of the exact same name, although the site's slogan is one word different from the slogan mentioned in Umineko. But it only has one post, translated (roughly) from Portuguese: "Good night. Good night, Fátima." But otherwise, there seems to be no other connection to Rosa's shop than that.

* The references to Dante's DivineComedy are both obvious and subtle. While Beatrice and Virgilia are rather straightforward, more easily missed is that the Stakes of Purgatory's relative ages directly correspond to the order of the terraces in 'Purgatorio' as Dante and Virgil ascend towards the meeting with Beatrice (Pride first, then Envy, Wrath, Sloth, Greed, Gluttony, and finally Lust.) Clair Vaux Bernard is also later introduced, whose name refers to Dante's third guide (Saint Bernardus, also known as Bernard of Clairvaux) in the Empyrean Heaven.

* ActorAllusion: The anime's next episode previews are filled to the brim with these.
** Rudolf's [[Creator/RikiyaKoyama voice actor for the anime and PS3 port]] is the same as the dub voice for [[Series/TwentyFour Jack Bauer]]. This is [[ShoutOut referenced]] in the sound novel's fifth episode, where he sings the first line of Bauer's song. It's also referenced in the preview for the 16th episode of the anime, when Rudolf is making calls, has a 24 ringtone, slips up and refers to himself as Jack.
** One of the Uraneko gag specials does the same thing with Natsuhi and her voice actress Creator/EmiShinohara's famous role as [[Anime/SailorMoon another ponytailed brunette]].
** Not in the preview. This is not the first time Creator/SayakaOhara played [[Manga/{{Xxxholic}} a witch who had a butterfly motif]] though Beatrice is more insane.
* AllStarCast: My, there are a lot of familiar names in this casting! It didn't prevent the anime from being a spectacular flop, though.
* CastingGag: It may not be deliberate, but in Episode 1, Maria says: "a witch I know told me that a miracle won't occur if everyone doesn't believe in it", a phrase often said by [[CuteGhostGirl Hanyuu]] in ''Higurashi''. In the anime and [=PS3=] port, Maria ended up with [[Creator/YuiHorie the same voice actor as Hanyuu.]]
* CreatorBreakdown: Whether there is any actual relation is unknown, but after Ryukishi's dear friend BT died, Umineko took on a very different tone from [=EP6=] onwards.
* {{Defictionalization}}: There are [[http://www.umineko-france.com/t414-le-portrait-de-beato actual]] [[http://lijianliang.deviantart.com/art/Beatrice-Portrait-Umineko-157144750 Beatrice portraits]] sold as goodies.
* FanNickname: Sea kittens. "''Umineko''" is the Japanese name for the black-tailed seagull, but the name literally translates to "sea cat". That, and it's a reference to a [[http://features.peta.org/PETASeaKittens/ particularly stupid PETA campaign.]] More nicknames for characters and places can be found [[FanNickname/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi here]].
* FanTranslation: [[http://witch-hunt.com/ Witch Hunt]], which actually got an [[http://witch-hunt.com/letter.html acknowledgment from the author]] and a ShoutOut in [=EP4=]. And it is most certainly well-deserved. Spanish and Italian translations are also available. A French one was started at some point, and the translation of Episode 1 was complete, but it got stopped for copyright issues (or something; it's not very clear).
* FlipFlopOfGod: In response to fan pressure to give up the solution, Ryuukishi07 has either given the [[AWizardDidIt fantasy explanation]] or challenged them to think it through themselves. These are pretty much the same statements the characters have given. He did end up giving the solutions (or most of them) in the manga though, which now [[BrokenBase divides the fanbase]] on whether or not it was the right choice. In a 2015 panel with Ryukishi at [=ACen=], he stated that after four years of writing ''Umineko'', he became more comfortable with giving out more hints in the manga.
* FranchiseKiller: Not to the visual novel series (obviously), but the anime's lackluster reception and low sales became this to both the ''Umineko'' anime series ''and'' the entire 07th Expansion anime series.
* {{Jossed}}: With all the AdaptationExpansion in the Episode 8 manga, the [[spoiler:Rosatrice]] theory has been pretty much buried six feet under.
* LyingCreator: Supporters of the [[spoiler:Rosatrice]] theory often suspect this from the author (who more or less confirms the [[spoiler:Shkanontrice]] theory in his interviews and in the manga).
* OneOfUs: Ryuukishi07's numerous {{Shout Out}}s to ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'', warm acceptance of the Witch Hunt FanTranslation, and the inclusion of hundreds of works of FanArt as loading screens for ''Ougon Musou Kyoku''.
* OtakuOClock
* TheOtherDarrin: As in ''VisualNovel/{{Higurashi|WhenTheyCry}}'', Okonogi is voiced by Creator/JurotaKosugi in the anime, and by Creator/KenNarita in the games.
** Kasumi is voiced by Creator/AtsukoTanaka (who also voices Kyrie) in the anime, and by Creator/SumiShimamoto in the [=PS3=] port.
* PlayingAgainstType: [[ShrinkingViolet Shannon]] is one of Creator/RieKugimiya's non-{{Tsundere}} roles.
* TalkingToHerself: Dialogues between Eva and EVA are an exercise of vocal squirming for Creator/MikiIto. Creator/SayakaOhara also does this with [[spoiler:Chick Beatrice and Beatrice the Elder]] in [=EP6=].
* RealitySubtext: In Episode 8's Tea Party, Featherine Augustus Aurora briefly mentions a piece of advice given by her "old friend who is now gone". It may or may not be a reference to Ryukishi's friend BT, who had passed away the year before. Especially considering that Ryukishi is quite clearly speaking through Featherine's mouth in that scene.
* RelationshipVoiceActor:
** If you hear [[Creator/TomokazuSugita Ronove]] and [[Creator/DaisukeOno Battler]] talking, you may be reminded of [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya another well-known story about a quite eccentric "heroine", who can reset the world.]] Better yet, their roles are more or less reversed.
** If you listen closely to both [[Creator/EmiShinohara Natsuhi]] and [[Creator/MikiIto Eva]], you might notice how sour they are towards each other. Contrast that with their roles as Youko and Sachiko respectively in ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru''.
** [[Creator/AmiKoshimizu Rosa]] and [[Creator/YuiHorie Maria]], who are [[Main/MamaBear mo]][[Main/AbusiveMom ther]] and [[CreepyChild daughter]] in Umineko, are [[Main.TomboyAndGirlyGirl childhood friends]] in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' (a series which ''also'' involves solving murders), along with the voice talents of [[Creator/DaisukeOno Battler]], [[Creator/TomokazuSugita Ronove]], [[Creator/RieKugimiya Shannon]], and [[Creator/SayakaOhara Beatrice]]. Oh, the irony...
** In ''LightNovel/FateZero'', [[Creator/AyakoKawasumi Saber]] is [[Creator/SayakaOhara Irisviel von Einzbern's]] good friend and protector. Here in ''Umineko'', [[spoiler:[[Creator/AyakoKawasumi Lion]] is [[Creator/SayakaOhara Beatrice's]] AlternateSelf]].
* TrollingCreator: Guess who, and we love him for it too. Unfortunately his reputation as such became the cause of the rise of the now defunct [[spoiler: Rosatrice]] theory.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Land of the Golden Witch. Originally, EP 3 was supposed to be much more difficult than the EP 3 we got (Banquet of the Golden Witch). And by much more difficult, I mean [[UpToEleven much harder in difficulty than both Legend and Turn.]] However, because Ryukishi found that many players were having trouble, he decided to lower the difficulty in order to give players more of a helping hand. This was explained in game as [[spoiler:Land being a message in a bottle, like Legend and Turn. However, unlike Legend and Turn, Land was never found, as revealed to Piece!Ange by Piece!Beato in EP 8.]] [[WordofGod Ryukishi has gone on record saying]] that he doesn't plan to release Land, as he says he incorporated all the clues that were in it into other arcs.
** One thing that was added to Banquet that wasn't in Land was the inclusion of Ronove and the inclusion of the [[SchrodingersCat Cat Box]] as hinted by Virgilia. Originally, the Cat Box discussion would've been left for an Answer Arc, [[UpToEleven which would have made EPs 3 and 4 at the least really hard for Battler to solve.]] Some of the things that were to be included in Land were apparently a character named "Virgilius" who was to be a guide for Battler (like Virgilia), but who acted like Erika. Another is that [[spoiler:part of Land was to be purportedly narrated from Yasu's point of view.]] It was said to also have had a few clues that were very important for the mystery but, because of Land's exclusion, were introduced as late as EP 5 and 6 canonically. Had Ryukishi kept Land --and thus [[spoiler:Yasu]] and those "vital clues" -- he probably could have avoided [[spoiler:[[InternetBackdraft criticism for his execution of the mystery's answer]] and the mystery probably would have been [[FairPlayWhodunnit more fair]]]].
** The direction and tone of the novels would have been very different if it weren't for the fact that Ryukishi's friend died. Other than CreatorBreakdown, his friend was his go-to guy for advice on the plot.
** Ryukishi had planned to write a short story about Will during his rookie days at the SSVD, but he eventually shelved it. He had also originally planned for [[spoiler:Will to be consumed by Bernkastel's cats in order to let Lion escape, only to be brought back in [=EP8=] as Bernkastel's piece Black Will]], but then he realized that this would take away Battler's role.
** In the epilogue, Ryukishi had originally planned [[spoiler:for the real Tooya Hachijou (formerly known as Battler) and Ikuko Hachijou to be married, but he ended up [[ImpliedLoveInterest making their relationship more ambiguous]].]]
