''Rule of Rose'' is an [[AdventureGame adventure]]/[[SurvivalHorror survival horror]] game for the [=PS2=] set in an [[OrphanageOfFear orphanage]]/[[GlobalAirship airship]] in [[WorldWarOne post-war]] England... '''or is it?''' It should be noted before going any further that the entire game is difficult to summarize for all sorts of reasons: the elaborate use of FairytaleMotifs, the [[UnreliableNarrator narration]], the [[TrappedInAnotherWorld setting]] (and [[AllJustADream the setting]]... and [[DeadAllAlong the setting]]), the surrealist horror aesthetic, and the purposely uneven story-telling. All this is used to weave a [[{{Grimmification}} broken fairytale]] about [[HumansAreBastards thoughtless cruelty]], [[LoveHurts wrecked love]], and [[SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids childlike longing for an idealized adult reality]], culminating into an unusually thoughtful and heartbreaking story of [[ComingOfAgeStory self-actualization and growing up]].

* HumiliationConga: The poor, unlucky girl.
* InfinityPlusOneSword: While all of the weapons associated with the [[AndYourRewardIsClothes ridiculous unlockable costumes]] are pretty powerful, the weapon that outshines them in both damage and difficulty to obtain is the Rusty Sword. In order to receive it, five fancy, [[LostForever easily missable]] dessert knives must be gathered from the various chapters throughout the game, and traded for a key to a secret door that the player has most likely forgotten about by the time they receive the means to unlock it.

* LostForever: Anything you fail to pick up during the current chapter/month is gone once you move on to the next chapter/month. This is particularly irritating if you're trying to work your way through a ChainOfDeals and save past the point of no return.

* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Everyone's so mean to Jennifer, even the adults.
* AmbiguousDisorder: Some fans have taken to interpreting Eleanor's extreme introversion and emotionlessness, combined with her overwhelming obsession with birds and odd rationale thereof (wanting to "sprout wings [like a bird] and fly away") as indicative of an autism spectrum disorder. Some of the other girls' behaviors certainly seem to point at various mental illnesses: Diana may be a narcissist (or possibly a borderliner), Clara has very obvious PTSD and Wendy [[spoiler: is a textbook sociopath.]]
