** Believe it or not, people have hidden treasures and written cryptic riddles as to how to find it. [[http://altereddimensions.net/2015/forrest-fenn-hidden-treasure-millions-dollars-hidden-gold-jewels-clues-treasure]]
** In ''Stay Tuned for Danger'', [[CloudCuckooLander Millie]] sometimes says "Don't take any wooden ''nickels'', young ''lady''!" This may seem like a NonSequitur, but it actually ''isn't''.[[https://www.qualitylogoproducts.com/tradeshow-promotions/woodennickel-extralarge-12306.jpg]]
** Nancy's car and [[spoiler: Emily's]]. Yes, cars actually look like that. Or used to in the 30's. For those of you too young to remember, they actually didn't look the way they do ''now'' until the late 90's.

** Jamila in ''Tomb of the Lost Queen'' claims aliens taught humans to build the Egyptian pyramids, and cites Sonny Joon as the source of this belief. [[spoiler: She's lying to cover up her true reason for being there, although ''The Shattered Medallion'' makes that more ambiguous.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Nancy and the culprit both clutch the Idiot Ball in ''Message in a Haunted Mansion''; there's one point in the game where she receives a threatening note commanding her to leave the mansion (actually an understatement, considering the note is written in a very visibly angry script and in all capital letters). First off, the culprit waits until she's ''at the door'' to deliver the note, rather than waiting until she's asleep or away from her room. Second, Nancy completely fails to notice this golden opportunity to figure out who the culprit is and ''doesn't think to open the door'' when she gets the note. The game could have been over much quicker if she had just thought to open the door when she got the note.

** Then again, this could be justified in that the more {{egregious}} bad acting can easily be fixed in editing so that the one take where Mattie is either outstanding, or at the very least not quite so awful, is shown on television.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: As your journeys begin taking you to new and exciting places in the later games, they also subject the player to new and horrific fake accents. Among the most {{egregious}} examples of this are Kyler's spotty "British" accent in ''The Haunting of Castle Malloy'' and Yumi's inconsistent JapaneseRanguage in ''Shadow at the Water's Edge.''

* GoryDiscretionShot: Because you're playing in first person, you don't get to see the details in the more gruesome Game Over scenarios, which is actually a good thing, considering the more horrific ways to die -- for example, one way to die in ''Treasure in the Royal Tower'' is by not pre-setting the elevator, not solving a puzzle in time, and thus ''getting crushed by an elevator''. Or in the final trap on ''Warnings at Waverly Academy'', which references Edgar Allan Poe's ''The Pit and the Pendulum''.

* FriendlyEnemies: In ''Alibi in Ashes'', Deirdre is ultimately this toward Nancy. She admits that she hates the teen detective--but she doesn't ''hate'' hate her, and in fact enjoys disliking her so much. Nancy seems to return the favor.
