* TechnologyMarchesOn: The TRAVIS is a hand-held device capable of storing written data and photographs, and is small enough to be stored inside a jacket pocket. Sounds almost like our modern palmtop computers and smart-phones, except the TRAVIS doesn't have a phone or Internet function and is somewhat bulkier than those devices.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Pay keen attention to anything that is learned regarding [[spoiler:Mrs. Harper's family finances]] in ''EEM Original.'' It'll be important later on.

* OhCrap: Bobby Garcia in ''EEM Original'' when he realizes he may have allowed a con artist to clean him out of all his birthday money, some of which he should have put in the bank like his mother had instructed him to.

* RememberTheNewGuy: Happens several times in both games, where characters are introduced who the player has never seen before but who Jake and Jennifer have apparently had prior offscreen acquaintances with. One of the most glaring examples of this is found in the first game, where late into the game two brothers, Michael and Christopher Gallin, are introduced who have certainly never shown up at any earlier point in the game but who the Eagles are evidently familiar with.

* UrbanLegends: In ''EEM Original's'' "Case of the Ghastly Ghost," it's revealed that the town of Richview has a legend about a woman named Niagara Tumbel, who supposedly fell off the balcony of the Egyptian Theater after fainting while watching a horror movie there in 1925. In reality, as the Eagle Eyes soon learn, Ms. Tumbel was an actress who pretended to faint while watching the movie, in order to attract publicity for the film.

* AllThereInTheManual: The manuals for both games show you how to work your way around the various menus and maps and how to select clues in the TRAVIS to solve each case. ** ''EEM London's'' game manual contains guides for semaphores, hieroglyphs, train schedules, and the names of British monarchs and when they reigned. The game also comes with a map of in-game London that the player can use to find his/her way around.

* DifficultySpike: In the first game, the mysteries in Book 1 are extremely easy and require that you pick five clues to solve each one. Then comes Book 2, whose cases are slightly more difficult and require that you pick ''four'' clues to solve them. And then comes the [[UpToEleven Challenge Book,]] which for at least one of the cases will require you to take out actual pen and paper to keep track of the facts, and all of which require you to pick '''three''' clues before you can choose the guilty party.

* FanBoy: Jeremy, a bike messenger and minor character who you first meet in ''EEM London's'' "Case of the Lyric Larceny," is a rabid fan of Astrid Blake's band, Stiff Upper Lip. While you're trying to find Astrid's missing songbook, which is the main aim of the case, when you run into him he offers to pay you ''fifty pounds'' for the book, which he desperately wants to add to his Stiff Upper Lip collection. Seriously, his devotion is [[NightmareFuel not a little creepy.]]

** In the same game, in Book 1's version of "Case of the Midnight Masquerade," there's a slight animation error that will later prove to be a vital clue in Book 2. [[spoiler:The tear in the gorilla costume.]]

* PointAndClickMap: The two games provide maps of Richview (in the first game) and London (in the sequel). When you're at the map screen, the locations you need to visit are identified by flashing diamonds, with the scene of the crime marked by a flashing red diamond (and thus it being the first place you should go to). Once you've collected all the information at a given location, its diamond will stop flashing and turn solid blue (including the crime scene diamond); in EEM London, if new information is available at a previously-visited site, its diamond will flash again.
