* CircusEpisode: The game takes place in the town of Monte d'Or, which is loved for its circus and amusement park. The game begins with a circus parade including jugglers, stilt-walkers, and a giant clown balloon. There are many {{Non Ironic Clown}}s to talk to, and one minigame involves training a rabbit to perform circus tricks.

Added DiffLines:

* Foreshadowing: [[spoiler:Of Descole disguising himself as Angela. The first time Layton notices something 'off' about Angela is when him and the others visit the Ledores the day after first meeting Angela to go into Henry's study. When you check the couch pillow, what's the collection item there that you couldn't get the night before? The ''Captured Queen''.]]

* ArcWelding: [[spoiler: It is revealed in this game that both the [[ProfessorLaytonAndTheLastSpecter Golden Garden]] and [[ProfessorLaytonAndTheEternalDiva Ambrosia]], as well as the ruins of Akbadain from Miracle Mask itself, are legacies from the ancient civilization of Azran, which is going to feature heavily in the sixth game.]]

** It also hints that the [[spoiler:Hint Coins]], present from day one, may also be related to the Azran. Layton and Randall make a note of it when they find one in some ruins, and one of the collectibles is [[spoiler:an "Enigma Coin"; similar to a Hint Coin only silver and with an R instead of an L on it.]] Again, the characters comment on it; and it's the only collectible they do that for.

* CallForward: Randall spent a great deal of time 18 years ago trying to get Layton as excited about puzzles and archeology as he was. Not to mention the fact that the professor would chronologically go on to use many of Randall's lines as "Puzzle Solved" voice clips.

** And let's not forget [[spoiler:Layton's Theme, which is only played in one cutscenes, meaning that you can't let it carry on for an unlimited time like in the dialogue, despite it being the ''theme song of the series'' (well, technically).]] Thankfully, both of these songs can be accessed through the Extras section.

Randall refuses to give it up and falls.]] The second is [[spoiler: a CallBack to the previous situation, with Randall once again in danger of falling and Layton telling him not to let go.
