Added DiffLines:

* LastSecondEndingChoice: A variation. Questions answered throughout the game affect your standing on the KarmaMeter, but your ''actual'' ending is decided by your responses to the final 4 questions in the last stage. Depending on which you answer "yes" or "no" to, you'll be locked into either the Order, Chaos or Neutural ending. The variation comes with the fact that if you pick an ending that contradicts your KarmaMeter (e.g. having mostly Chaos Karma but saying you prefer a life of stability), you'll get the Bad Ending version. So you do get to make a LastSecondEndingChoice, but if the game knows you aren't truly committed to it the ending won't be a good one.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaninglessLives: It is common to find extra life items close to a check point. In easy and normal mode, each item give you 3 and 2 lives respectively, and they reappear each time. As a result, you are likely to end up with more lives than you started with no matter how many times you die. In hard mode, you get only one extra life per item, making lives meaningful again, as if it wasn't difficult enough.

* LateArrivalSpoiler: Vincent's cameo in the {{PSP}} port of {{Persona3}} received much hype when {{Catherine}} still was in production, talking to him will summarize some of his great frustrations in his own game, like how a girl suddenly made his life take a new turn (Catherine), and that his actual girlfriend (Katherine) is expecting his child.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Fairly early in the game, Catherine says that she has to go to the dentist. [[spoiler:One of the first sheep Vincent meets in the nightmare world is called Steve, who has also fallen victim to Catherine. His profession is a dentist]].

Added DiffLines:

** The bar owner mentions that [[spoiler: he's cheated on his wife and is currently on poor terms with her even though he still loves her]] but for some reason you never [[spoiler: see him as a sheep with the rest of the people you meet at the bar]]. In retrospect it's a big hint that [[spoiler: he's the one making you go through the nightmares]].

* HellHasNewManagement: [[spoiler:In Catherine's true ending, Vincent storms the hellish dimension where [[HornyDevils Catherine]] is from, dethrones her father (stated to be a very powerful demon himself, even if he is a BumblingDad), and rules over the succubi until, as Catherine states, "there is nobody who doesn't recognize your power". Damn.]]

* YouAreWorthHell: [[spoiler:PlayedForLaughs in Catherine's true ending, where Vincent proposes to Catherine and is transported to the Netherworld. He doesn't seem to mind much... probably because [[LikeABadassOutOfHell he eventually takes over the whole place]] anyway.]]

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Vincent will try to keep Catherine from coming over one night by telling her his stomach's acting up and he'd like to rest alone. Her text to Vincent in the Stray Sheep sequence afterward has her saying she's not sure whether to believe that, and if the player has Vincent in the bar's bathroom stall when they answer, "Hell, I'm in the bathroom RIGHT NOW" gets included in they lines they can use in their response.

* LostInTranslation: The title of the game is "Catherine", but in the Japanese version the name is spelled so it clearly refers to both Catherine and Katherine, making them both the [[CharacterTitle eponymous character]]. In the English version, only Catherine's name is directly referred to by the title.

* WeAllLiveInAmerica: Supposedly, the game takes place in an unnamed American city, but there are some things that are distinctly Japanese about it. For example, Vincent's apartment is absolutely teeny. While Japanese apartments ''are'' that small, American ones typically are much more spacious.
