** The four endings titled "Ib All Alone" [[spoiler:have her not going back to the real world and being trapped inside the art world, for some reason or another]], and the endings "Welcome to the World of Guertena" and "A Painting's Demise" have a somewhat similar situation, [[spoiler:except this time it's not just that Ib decided not to return to the real world, she actually couldn't because she gave in to despair and refused to get up ever again]]. Let that sink in for a moment.

* EarnYourHappyEnding / EarnYourBadEnding: The endings "[[TheBadGuyWins Together, Forever]]," "[[BittersweetEnding Memory's Crannies]]," and "[[NonStandardGameOver Ib All Alone]]" are quite simple to get, and while "[[DownerEnding Forgotten Portrait]]" is a bit trickier, as you have to do a bit of backtracking to obtain it, it's not by much. However, you have to go out of your way for Garry's best ending, "[[GoldenEnding Promise of Reunion]]," as you [[spoiler:have to avoid adding points to Garry's doom counter ''and'' be sure to have done everything to strengthen your bond with him.]] And the two worst endings, [[ShootTheShaggyDog "Welcome to the World of Guertena" and "A Painting's Demise,"]] you also have to go out of your way for. With "Welcome to the World of Guertena" in particular, you have to [[spoiler:screw up about as much as it is possible to screw up, meet one or two other requirements, ''and'' form a strong bond with Mary.]]

** This also seems to happen to [[spoiler: any humans who escape the art gallery. In any endings where Ib and/or Garry escape the gallery, they lose all memories of their time there, and it's only in the best ending, "Promise of Reunion," that they'll remember, because Ib gave Garry her handkerchief earlier and the sight of it triggers their memories.]]

* WhatMeasureIsANonhuman: Played with confusingly. On the one hand, [[spoiler:Mary]] is given a lot of development and is clearly identifiably sentient; on the other hand, in order to get the best ending, [[spoiler:you have to kill her]], and after you've done so, [[spoiler:Garry comments not that they just killed their former friend, but that they just destroyed one of Guertena's masterpieces.]] On the one hand, you have to rip apart dolls at least a couple times in order to proceed, as one of them has something you need to solve the paint puzzle and another one is holding the key you need to leave a certain area, but on the other hand, kicking dolls and mannequins over might lock you out of the good endings. On the one hand, Ib thinks nothing of destroying the ant's painting; on the other hand, when Garry says he wants to stomp on the ant, Ib doesn't let him.

* AerithAndBob: Garry, Mary, and... Ib. It's a translation choice for the English version, as her name is supposed to be "Eve", but calling the game that [[VideoGame/EVEOnline would have caused some confusion]], while calling the game "Ib" and the character "Eve" would've been a bit strange.
** It's not entirely correct to say that the name is "supposed to be" Eve, as even art done by the Japanese creator of the game, Kouri, has it spelled as "Ib" on his artwork.

* AffablyEvil: [[spoiler: Mary. Clearly mentally disturbed, and tries to murder Ib and Garry, but genuinely wants Ib as a friend. She also has NothingPersonal against Garry- she just wants him to replace her in the gallery so she can go free. In one of the endings she [[CosmicRetcon becomes Ib's]] [[CheerfulChild cheerful hyperactive sister,]] and in another decides to play with Ib, Garry, and the dolls in the art gallery. Forever.]]

** If you are on an ending path where Garry [[spoiler:survives]], he refuses to leave until you've investigated the room [[spoiler:that is blocked off by vines]]. Going into said room [[spoiler:-- which happens to be Mary's room --]] leads to [[spoiler:Mary]] trying to attack, and you have no option but to [[spoiler:kill Mary or else get a Game Over]].

*** Although, given that [[spoiler: Mary has tried to kill you and kills Garry in a few of the endings, this could be seen as LaserGuidedKarma.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Although [[spoiler: Mary [[EnfantTerrible wasn't the nicest person anyway,]] so [[LaserGuidedKarma no big loss.]]]]

*** And, since [[spoiler: Mary tried to kill you and kills Garry in some other endings, you could say [[LaserGuidedKarma her fate, if sad, was deserved.]]]]
