** This is the only game in the series where Layton finds people's tendency to keep giving you puzzle to solve curious. In the other games, he never acts as if there's anything weird about it. And since ''VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonAndTheMiracleMask'' shows us that this kind of puzzle-mania was prevalent even in Layton's home village when he was a young man, it's a bit ''puzzling'' that he finds the villagers' love for brain-teasers so unusual. (Especially since he supplies Luke with more of them than any villagers do.)

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: At one point you are required to look for a clue in the painting of a girl. Touching the general area of the breasts will result in a comment from Layton. Because of the proximity to the place where you are meant to touch (which is made obvious), it's entirely possible to find this accidentally.

* LuckBasedMission: One Poor Pooch has at least 3 variants of the "correct" solution. Figuring out which one the game wants [[spoiler:(the legs form an "x" shape, rather that two > or <)]] is pure luck.

* HypocriticalHumor: While probably unintentional, it's still undoubtedly an example when Layton comments upon how obsessed the villagers are with puzzles, despite him being more obsessed with them than anybody else.

** It would not be until the second game that the memo function would be added meaning that notes need to be taken on the puzzle itself.
** The game does not take the player to the mysteries screen when a new mystery is unlocked, nor does it stay on the mysteries screen when one is solved.

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: [[spoiler: Shot where it stands. Flora, Layton, and Luke don't even give brief consideration to the idea that the inhabitants of St. Mystere are worth less than any other person, and are all disturbed by the idea that claiming the fortune would mean "killing" them.]]

* {{Foreshadowing}}: When [[spoiler:Layton and Luke meet Flora on the top of the tower, they learn that her father told her that the person who solved the mystery and came to get her would be someone she could trust with her life. A few minutes later, when Layton, Luke, and Flora are fleeing from the crumbling tower, the stairs collapse and Flora nearly falls to her death... but is pulled back in the nick of time by Layton, thus proving her father's words correct.]]

*** [[spoiler: Of course, once Bruno snuffs it, and he's getting on in years, the village will run down of it's own accord since there will be no one to repair the robots; after that, there's no problem with claiming the fortune. Of course, this was always a problem all along for the gambit. What if Bruno had died before Flora became of reasonable age?]]
