* BlatantLies: One puzzle involves finding the culprit of an incident which caused red liquid to be splashed everywhere. One suspect is splashed in the same red liquid, which he claims happened in an entirely unrelated incident and he was actually the last guy to arrive on the scene. [[spoiler:Subverted, he really is telling the truth.]]

** Poor Maya can't escape her curse of being the defendant [[OnceAnEpisode at least once in every game she's in]], even in Labyrinthia.

Added DiffLines:

* RearrangeTheSong: Several bits of music from ''VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonAndTheDiabolicalBox'' are re-used and updated in this game, which is quite thematically appropriate seeing as [[spoiler:both games deal with towns where the occupants are under the influence of hypnotic chemicals]].

* EvolvingTitleScreen: The main screen either shows the courtroom dark (when the cast is investigating and solving puzzles) or lit with fire (if you left off during a trial).

* SaveScumming: Doing this in the Trials doesn't take you to where you saved, but to a somewhat earlier moment, causing you to swim through waves of text (or even pressing and presenting) to get back to where you screwed up. It's almost as if the developers WANT to drive the players insane. Then again, that's why we have the hint coins.

* ShooOutTheClowns: Following [[spoiler: Kira's]] very FamilyUnfriendlyDeath [[spoiler: (or, more specifically, her Family Unfriendly DisneyDeath)]] at the end of the first witch trial, the game takes a decidedly dark turn. Although the comedic elements are still present, they are notably downplayed and before long you'll see [[spoiler: Professor Layton turned to gold, Maya accused of witchcraft and threatened with Kira's fate, Luke turning against Phoenix and Maya in his grief over the Professor, and Maya seemingly ''killed'' in the fire pit, pushing Phoenix into HeroicSafeMode.]] ''Damn!''

* SpringTimeForHitler: [[spoiler: Phoenix was not meant to succeed in the case in Britain; hence his being put into a trial without prior notice, and without even a background in the British court system. He was told to go along with the guilty plea and the prosecutor even lets it slip that "this wasn't how it was supposed to go" when he declares his client not guilty.]]

* WhatTheHellHero: Phoenix receives this speech from Rouge [[spoiler:after Maya's "death"]], and is told to GetAHoldOfYourselfMan. [[spoiler: Should be noted that her speech actually ''isn't'' the typical "get ahold of your emotions" speech, but the exact opposite. She gets on Phoenix's case for holding onto his emotions TOO MUCH and never self-pitying, which is an original, yet also profound and rather nice, variation]].

* HateSink:
** Emeer, thanks to his generally obnoxious personality and [[spoiler:due to him ''stealing Layton's broken-off arm after he was transformed into a gold statue'']].
** Ms Primstone in the same case only exists to be an ''extreme'' {{Jerkass}} at every opportunity. [[spoiler:Since she's the only female witness initially, this is probably so you suspect she's the witch at first. Unfortunately she's a RedHerring.]]

* FawltyTowersPlot: [[spoiler: Project Labyrinthia began this way - in order for Espella to recover from the trauma caused by the fire, Arthur (the Storyteller) made a story about a witch being punished...then told Espella that witches were real and that his stories become true. It started out with a few people acting out roles in his stories, and as both the town and the story expanded, it ended up with an entire town with it's population hypnotized and made open to suggestion.]]

* WaterSourceTampering: [[spoiler:Though it's naturally occuring as opposed to being maliciously put there, Labyrinthia's water source is contaminated with a substance that causes citizens to pass out at the sound of pure silver and, when channeled through the plants, produces a substance that, when mixed into ink, makes them extremely vulnerable to suggestion.]]
