* StoryOverwrite: No matter how far Vincent's KarmaMeter is on the red line, indicating a Catherine ending, [[spoiler: Vincen will break up with Catherine to fully commit himself against to Katherine and prepare to propose to her, including his shock when Katherine, in turn, breaks up with him over cheating]]. The only thing that really indicates that it's taking your decisions into account is Vincent's internal monologue.

* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: Catherine and Vincent's "relationship" basically begins with DateRape. Okay, so you ''could'' argue that Vincent's first drunken hookup with Catherine was consensual, since they ''might'' have both been smashed at the time. Except for the ''little'' fact that [[WhatDidIDoLastNight he can't remember it in the morning]]. Nor can he remember any of their other sexual encounters either. [[spoiler:And by the end, we realize it ''definitely wasn't spontaneous'' on Catherine's part.]] [[AManIsAlwaysEager Plenty of men would still envy his position]], but [[FridgeHorror how would this go over if the game were]] GenderFlipped? No matter how Atlus wrote He-Catherine's and She-Vincent's characters, the feminist outcry would ensure that the game tanked immediately.

* 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, the game takes place in an unnamed American city, but there are some things that are distinctly Japanese about it.

* 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.]]
