* DungeonBypass: NewGamePlus gives a way for Fiona to just leave the castle without going through the areas of Daniella, Riccardo or Lorenzo. Amusingly, it basically boils down to convincing the gardener to lend you the spare front door key.

* GunsDoNotWorkThatWay: [[spoiler:Riccardo's]] pistol is a flintlock so it should only be able to fire one shot, necessitating a lengthy reload time. Instead, Ricardo fires it like a semiautomatic handgun.

* {{Leitmotif}}: Each stalker has a distinctive chase music which goes through tempo and volume shifts depending on how far behind you they are. It also gets remixed for their boss battle. In cutscenes, Hewie gets a theme of his own in the form of a soft, music box-like tune. Fiona is the only character without one, except maybe Endless Zero.

* ForWantOfANail: [[spoiler:Things are a lot simpler for Fiona in Ending C, where she finds a key to the castle gate much earlier than normal and escapes within the first quarter of the game.]]
* FriendlyEnemy: Even after she's decided to tear out her Azoth, Daniella is such a dutiful maid that she'll be too busy cleaning to bother Fiona from time to time. Fiona even gets a useful item for talking to her during one such break from chasing Fiona.

* {{Golem}}: Fiona comes across a couple of them during her journey in the castle. One of them is blocking a door and requires you to insert a keyplate inscribed with "emeth" to move it out of the way. As an added GeniusBonus for those familiar with the golem myth, you can use the word "METH" to make it crumble instead -- and get an item as a reward.
