* DemotedToExtra: Subverted. Flora isn't mentioned at all in the first third or so of the storyline, and when you finally do encounter her, Layton seemingly sidelines her in a manner that suggests the developers didn't want to have to deal with her in this game. However, when you [[spoiler:return to Future London]] she irately shows up and makes it clear that she isn't going to take no for an answer, and accompanies the Professor for the rest of the game.

* SheIsAllGrownUp: We get a glimpse of what Luke would look like when he's older. [[spoiler: Later in the game we find out that he is not Luke but a boy named Clive who looks incredibly similar to Luke, which does not really make sense because Luke and Clive are not related.]]

** A more minor example, but before the first Puzzle Battle, Future Luke poses that the Professor Layton in front of him could be Don Paolo in disguise. [[spoiler: Skip ahead a few hours to the Towering Pagoda, where this is precisely what happens.]]

* ShootTheShaggyDog: All that stuff with the BadFuture and Evil Layton and such? [[spoiler: Meaningless. It turns out Future London was fake and just a setup for some guy (Actually Future Luke!) to build a killer robot, so everything you did in the first part of the game was basically for nothing. And then the guy uses the killer robot to blow up a city, he goes to jail; Bill and Dimitri, the ones you discover are responsible for the whole mess, escape unharmed; young Luke moves away;]] and at the very last minute you are told that [[spoiler:Celeste was Claire the whole time, making the explanation for how time travel was impossible pointless, and then she dies with Professor Layton weeping in despair.]] THE END.

The game ends, not with "The End", but with "To Be Continued". Perhaps there will be something after the prequel trilogy is completed.

* TeacherStudentRomance: A one-sided version: Rosetta, one of Layton's students, makes thinly-veiled references to how she's looking forward to their private sessions. Layton, for his part, seems to know what she's implying (he stutters a bit) but is clearly not interested. Leads to a humorous moment during the credits, which show Rosetta and Layton in their "private" session...with Luke and Flora. Layton and the kids are evidently having a great time; Rosetta, not so much.
