* BoozeBasedBuff: The more hammered Vincent is by the time he leaves the bar, the faster he runs during the Nightmare levels. As a nice cosmetic bonus, finishing your drink gives you trivia about that type of alcohol; cocktails, beer, sake, or whiskey.

As a nice cosmetic bonus, finishing your drink gives you trivia about that type of alcohol; cocktails, beer, sake, or whiskey. And best of all, taking a drink uses no time in the bar segments, so you're free to get all four pieces of trivia every time.

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: The majority of the cast is white with Anglo-Saxon names, and the town is a rather American-looking city. However, the actual name of the place is very deliberately avoided, along with the other quirks mentioned above under WeAllLiveInAmerica. The police officer Morgan wears a hat with a checkered rim, resembling those worn by police in England rather than the United States. On top of all of that, the True Freedom ending shows [[spoiler:Vincent at a spaceship dock overlooking the city, wherein it appears to be a small colony in a desert - and certainly not on Earth at all - as an incredibly sci-fi-looking spaceship flies in the background with no visible sky]], raising more questions than it answers.

** Characters specifically go on about women's wrestling, and the {=WrasslInsanity=} PPV seems to a women's-only show. In Japanese pro wrestling, men and women generally perform in seperate promotions, but in the West, unisex leagues are far more common.

* WeAllLiveInAmerica: Supposedly, While the actual location the game takes place in an unnamed American city, but is never mentioned (characters specifically avoid saying, even using terms like "this country"), the setting is a very American-looking city. Despite that, there are some things that are distinctly Japanese about it. it:



** At one point, during an optional text conversation with Catherine if you tell her not to bother you, she will eventually reply with "You're so boring!", followed by a [[http://i.imgur.com/P2j2uDA.jpg rather Japanese emoticon.]] This isn't to say that Japanese-style emoticons aren't uncommon in the US; stuff like "^_^" and ">_<" get used fairly regularly. You will rarely, if ever, find someone using the one in the picture, though.

** [[spoiler:One of Mutton's motivations for the nightmares]] is the low birth rate of "this country". While it's well-documented that Japan's birth rate (and population numbers in general) has been in a steep decline for decades, population growth is far less of a problem in the United States.

* BrickJoke: An unusual AllThereInTheManual example: Katherine likes cake. This doesn't seem significant until she actually gives a cake to Vincent as a present. However, that same cake [[spoiler:ends up rotting in the room a few days later, and ants end up crawling all over Vincent's dorm. Catherine, who somehow slept with Vincent again, questions why does Vincent have a cake after they clean up the mess. This causes a chain of incidents that lead to Vincent being suspected of cheating.]]

The game is an action puzzle game in which you climb a tower by pushing, pulling and climbing blocks. Several obstacles block and hinder you along the way, including other sheep and eventually boss characters.



* OrderVersusChaos: A given, being the game is a Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei {{spinoff}}, but at the same time [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] by the fact it's all within the context of marriage and relationships, instead of the usual cosmic forces.

It's not until he has a discussion with the Boss where he learns that she was real, and that she's a succubus.]]
