* AxCrazy: [[spoiler: Eddie]] is revealed to be this.
* BenevolentArchitecture: Eddie tells you at the beginning that he designed the entire security system with traps around the apartment building, because "the neighbourhood really sucks", according to him. Later, Lyle the Handyman will set up one trap "that even Eddie doesn't know about":[[spoiler: the phone line trap]].
* BigBadEnsemble: The gangsters, the secret society members, and [[spoiler: Eddie]].
* BigNo: [[spoiler: Eddie]] yells this a few times when you trap him at the end of the game.

* MamaDidntRaiseNoCriminal: [[spoiler: Eddie's]] mother knows that her son is insane. However, she is strongly in denial over it and even acts as his accomplice at one point.
** Specifically, at one point she presses a button that electronically locks the lobby doors shut so the "Grads" can't simply exit the building to escape from [[spoiler: Eddie]].

* ProperlyParanoid: Eddie set up traps all the building out of apparent paranoia. [[spoiler: The scary thing is that he is both right and wrong. He is right because there are Mafia goons as well as secret society members who start running loose in the building. He is wrong because he is dangerously insane and wants an Egyptian statue that everyone is after.]]
* PsychopathicManchild: [[spoiler: Eddie]] seems to be this.
* ScoobyDooHoax: Roughly around the middle of the game, an Egyptian mummy runs around trying to trap and/or kill people. [[spoiler: It's Eddie in disguise, and he dressed up like one so that he could get an Egyptian statue without anyone figuring out it was him]].
* StatingTheSimpleSolution: At the end of the game, Lyle has [[spoiler: Eddie]] at his mercy, and he asks everyone what should be done with the guy. Brutus says "Nail him!" However, Lyle ends up activating a trap that sends [[spoiler: Eddie]] flying around a couple of times, and then through a TrapDoor, supposedly sending him back to the basement.

* {{Unwinnable}}: There's only one real example, but it's a big one: [[spoiler: when Lyle the Handyman starts to talk about something he wants to show you, ''don't trap him'', despite what Eddie told you about Lyle causing trouble. Why? Because what Lyle wants to show you is a new trap. It's an electric cage trap, and you need this trap later on to stop Eddie from attacking people dressed as a mummy. If you trap Lyle before he can reveal the cage trap to you, you will be ''completely unable'' to beat Eddie later on and you'll lose the game.]]

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Early on, Eddie needs your help to escape the basement he's trapped in. [[spoiler: After you free him, he goes on a rampage, and when he realizes that you are thwarting him, he will try to cut off your connection to the security system, and you will have to stop him from doing so]].

The game takes place in a large and old apartment complex called the Edward Arms where a young man named Eddie has been locked in the basement, and needs your help to get him out. Of course, once you get him out, the fun begins...

* GenreSavvy: After being attacked by a mummy who turned out to be [[spoiler: Eddie]] a few times, three people hurry to Brutus's room. Why? Because they decided that they need a gun to shoot their attacker, and since they know Brutus has had dealings with the Mafia, they figure who better to come to for a gun? They didn't get a gun, but at least they tried, didn't they?
** [[spoiler: Eddie]] is a case of DangerouslyGenreSavvy. [[spoiler: He's the one who handed you control over all the traps in the apartment building. But later, when he wants to attack the guests, he must go through the building himself. So he takes along a remote control of his own so he can activate the traps before ''you'' do. This forces you to change your strategy; you now have to shut the traps ''off'' before Eddie can trap the guests in them, and ''then'' you have to use the traps on Eddie when he walks over them himself.]]

* AllPartOfTheShow: At one point, a talent scout from a record company is sent to watch the audition of the rock band staying in the hotel. Unfortunately the performance gets messed with by goons showing up whom you then have to trap before they can attack the lead singer; if you do trap the goons, the talent scout thinks this was part of the act and he promises to recruit the band, so the audition succeeds.
