** Disturbingly, the music for the [[spoiler:purified zones]] continue playing throughout battles as well, which makes fighting the Secretaries that much more disturbing.
** In the section where you run away from Enoch, the ridiculously happy ragtime music continues to play, indicating that [[MusicalSpoiler it isn't the real boss fight yet]].
** The music of Zone 3's subways - Yesterday was Better - continues to play over the battle with the Critic Burnt.
** The same happens in the battle with [[spoiler:Hugo]] with the Race of a Thousand Ants.

** There is a hidden chest in Zone 2 with a Min-Woo tunic by taking the pedalo not to the park but out into the ocean. There is no hint to where it is or that there even is anything to begin with.
** Finding the Grand Spectral. It resides in a room that looks identical to the only other building in the area. And that area is just a big vast white. Unless knowing where to go or being incredibly lucky, chances are the player will run around for minutes before leaving in confusion.

* CreepyJazzMusic: The default battle theme is "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1EPegIzD2M Pepper Steak]]", a jazzy piece with unsettling repetitions. Even the most lighthearted battles in this game are against mini-{{Eldritch Abomination}}s, [[spoiler:and the Batter himself is no less disturbing]].

%%** The game's title and its opening line.



** One of the puzzles in Zone 3 is unsolvable without looking at the game's Readme file. You only get told this by Zacharie, who is hidden in one of many rooms in one of the many hallways of Zone 3 Area 4. And the only way to get him to tell you is for you to get a Music Box. And the only way to get the Music Box is to find and defeat the BossInMookClothing - who puts up a very long and tedious fight mainly due to its DamageSpongeBoss nature - who is ''also'' hidden in one of the many rooms in one of the many hallways of Zone 3 Area 4. And even ''then'', you still need to find an extra sheet of paper that decodes part of the puzzle for you ([[SuspiciousVideoGameGenerosity although the game is kind enough to tell you that it's important]]). Yeah, that's pretty bad.
** On top of which, at least one download for the English translation ''[[UnwinnableByMistake doesn't include the Read Me file.]]''

** Due to the loud and sudden pre-battle noise, nearly every single random encounter could count as this. The Secretary encounters in the [[spoiler:purified Zones]] in particular feel like this, due to the Zones' barren nature and how low the encounter rate is.
