* GenreSavvy: Chelmey. When he comes to a conclusion on who stole the MacGuffin[=/=]PlotCoupon, he tells his assistant to round up the suspects for a SummationGathering. Said assistant wonders why he doesn't simply arrest the guy, to which Chelmey shouts that unmasking the villain publicly is what detectives live for.
** More likely WrongGenreSavvy; he acts like he's in a detective story, which he is - but he thinks ''he's'' the hero and Layton is The Amateur That Gets In The Way.

Added DiffLines:

* EldritchLocation: The town of Folsense could be considered this as it's essentially a phantom town which was marked off the map decades back, but [[spoiler: appears to be alive thanks to the mysterious gas that leaks from the nearby abandoned mines.]]
**Additionally, there are tall buildings present in the scenery that would be impossible in retrospect due to map placement.

* CluelessMystery: Not the mystery as a whole, but [[spoiler: what was Layton planning to do if "Flora" hadn't mentioned the goat on the Elysian box? He intended to name the killer, but the only clue that he or the audience had about Flora not being Flora was what she said five seconds before she was unmasked.]]
** Also, the only way to solve the mystery is to assume that [[spoiler: Sammy, Beluga, Katia, Luke, and Layton are all hallucinating the same things. [[WhatTheHellHero What the hell, Level 5?]]]]
*** And that [[spoiler:simply having heard rumors of people dying can actually kill you through tiny traces of hallucinogenic chemicals from 50 years ago.]] And, perhaps most objectionably, that [[spoiler:seeing a few photographs of a town can tell you what the insides of all of the buildings look like, or at least have everyone imagine them the same.]]

There's no way to solve the mystery is to assume that until you receive the answer, since doing so requires several ludicrous assumptions.

* WildMassGuessing: [[spoiler:In the second-to-last cutscene, the Molentary Express is shown pulling out of Folsence Station. Luke waves out the train window to Anton and Katia... who are standing on a hill... Did Layton and Luke really leave them behind, by themselves, in the dilapidated, run-down town with no connection to society? Surely it would not have been any trouble to drop them of in Dropstone when picking up Flora. During the credits, we do see all of Katia's servants from Dropstone arriving to renovate the town, so it's possible they're not alone after all.]]
