** After you get your oarsmen badge, Crystal and Clem are [[spoiler: contemplating suicide]] on top of the lodge. Crystal says something along the lines of "we're going to become so powerful, aren't we?" Clem responds, [[Film/ANewHope "More powerful than you could possibly imagine."]]

* DummiedOut: Originally there was going to be a subplot involving [[spoiler: the nightmares in Milla's mindscape getting loose and abducting campers]]. Due to time constraints, unacceptable levels of scariness, or the developers realising [[spoiler:Milla would never allow her own mind to endanger children]], the subplot was dropped - but the bosses weren't, leading to ''no less than two'' [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere Boss fights with one during The Milkman Conspiracy]]. [[spoiler:There are still Nightmares in Milla's mind, too, but they're firmly caged and controlled, posing no threat.]]

* DummiedOut: Originally there was going to be a subplot involving [[spoiler: the nightmares in [[https://tcrf.net/Psychonauts Unused voice lines]] hint that Milla's mindscape getting loose and abducting campers]]. Due reaction to time constraints, unacceptable levels [[spoiler:her orphanage burning down]] could have been seen. On a lighter note, there are also lines of scariness, or the developers realising [[spoiler:Milla would never allow her own mind to endanger children]], the subplot was dropped - but the bosses weren't, leading to ''no less than two'' [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere Boss fights apparently making out with one during The Milkman Conspiracy]].

* NoodleIncident: You're given a rough idea, but you never get told precisely what Clem and Crystal were trying to accomplish. [[spoiler: The poison? Trying to kill themselves. The rooftop? Trying to kill themselves. Crystal's backstory on Myspace says that she's suicidal; Clem's says that they're no longer allowed to handle sharp implements. It's strongly hinted that they're trying to gain ultimate psychic power by destroying their bodies and setting their spirits free.]]

* CameraScrew: Perhaps inevitable in a third person platformer, but most notable during The Meat Circus, where the camera switches angles mid jump several times. And occasionally, it will just get stuck inside an object, forcing a restart.

** The game tells you that the highest achievable rank is 100, and there are exactly enough collectables in the game to get to this rank. However, you also get awarded a rank for beating every round of the punching minigame in Basic Braining, making it possible to have a rank of 101/100. Doing this in the Steam version nets you the achievement "[[LampshadeHanging Math Is Hard]]".

* SlidingScaleOfGameplayAndStoryIntegration: Deliberate Integration. Raz's SuperDrowningSkills are the result of a curse on his family which is an important part of the game's backstory. ExtraLives are "mental depth layers". Most marvelously integrated are the {{Mental World}}s, the structure of which depends on the owner's personality, meaning the gameplay will reflect this and any disorders that character has:
** Sasha is TheSpock who advocates rigid mental control, so his mind is a blank featureless box that expands into specific memories on command.
** Milla is a bubbly ManicPixieDreamGirl who treats everything like a party, so her mind is a huge, winding [[DiscoDan seventies disco]] with bright colours that you get around by bouncing or gently floating.
** Boyd has Paranoid Schizophrenia, which causes almost everything in the level to look at you or sneak up on you in some way, which will make some players think that the level is trying to attack them.
** Edgar suffers from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, which is represented by a bull that keeps knocking you back to the start of the level, causing you to repeat parts of the world over and over again.
** Gloria has Bipolar Disorder, and you can change the mood lighting in the world to literally swing the mood of the stage between comedy and tragedy.
** Fred has multiple personalities, so his world is actually two worlds; one world where he manipulates a game board inside of a castle, and a game world containing that castle.
** The final level takes place [[spoiler:within Raz's own head]] and is not only frustratingly difficult, but [[spoiler:the final boss is completely invulnerable without the aid of another psychic]]. The fact that it's nigh-impossible to solve your own mental problems without outside help is the entire reason Psychonauts exist.

** Franke and Kitty ''might'' be a lesbian couple, there's no especially solid evidence for it or to the contrary.
