* {{Foreshadowing}}: If you examine the confessional, Grace will mention that, being raised Buddhist, she thinks atoning for sin isn't as easy as simply saying sorry. The ending reveals [[spoiler: Gabriel's family have been serving as Schattenjäger since the crucifixion of Christ, due to the role one of his ancestors, a Roman solider, played in it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: An interesting example between Gabriel and Grace since it's more in the ''spiritual'' sense that she is masculine and he is feminine. As Grace learns during a tarot card reading, she embodies the traits of the Chariot: driven, disciplined and logical, while Gabriel is the Magician: intuitive, spiritual and magical.

** This is even noted in-universe: The police found that the murder rituals match "real" voodoo poorly, and thus they concluded they were done by someone with Hollywood Voodoo -level of familiarity with the subject. They were correct on the first part, but their conclusion was wrong; the rituals are actually from an African religion that was one of the main influences on Caribbean voodoo.

* MundaneUtility: The Schattenjäger dagger, which Gabriel carries with him for almost the entire game has only one use: To undo screws on a vent cover in the last chapter. [[spoiler:You can try to attack von Zell with it, but that has fatal results for Gabriel.]]

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Was the taunting spectre [[spoiler: of Von Glower]] real or false?

That and previous games reveal that [[spoiler: the spirits of unrepentant werewolves are unable to ascend, forever condemned to remain in the world they so desperately clung to.]]
