* InsurmountableWaistHighFence: "I guess this is as far as I go."

to:

* InsurmountableWaistHighFence: When confronting a knee-high street barrier, or set of dogs blocking his way, he just says "I guess this is as far as I go."" Thankfully these blockades disappear after the first couple chapters.



* RidiculouslyAverageGuy: Eike down to a tee. Despite being the main character Eike has no depth or any characteristics that make him stand out. Eckhart Brum in fact has much more depth and complexity and he appears only a few times on screen. Eike may also fall into the category of Socially-AwkwardHero as he bumbles around most conversations.

* BigDamnHeroes: In Ending B, [[spoiler: Eckhart sneaks up on Hugo from behind and wrestles him to the ground, effectively saving Eike and Margarette.]]



* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: In one of the endings, [[spoiler: Eike brings Margarette to the present so she can confront Hugo, who is holding Dana hostage since he blames Eike for making their father disappear. Margarette slaps Hugo, telling him to get it together since Eike was not at fault and, despite both of their parents being gone, they still have each other and are still a family. Hugo apologizes and goes back home with his sister.]]



* JustifiedExtraLives

to:

* JustifiedExtraLivesJustifiedExtraLives: Eike dies many times throughout the game, but he always comes back with Homunculus' help.



** Towards the end of the game, Hugo threatens to wipe Eike from existence by leaving Margarette in the current time since she's ancestress of Eike and Eike can't exist without her being in her own time. [[spoiler: Except Hugo's plan failed due to Homunculus switching Margarette and Dana at birth. By putting Dana in the 1500s, Eike's existence would be guaranteed no matter what Hugo did.]]
** Two endings causes a character to be wiped from existance if they come into contact with their past selves. [[spoiler: In one ending, Hugo dies after touching his future self and in an extra ending, Eike knows that the Homunculus came from the Philosopher's Stone, thus he chucks said stone at him to erase him.]]

** Towards the end of the game, game in a few endings, Hugo threatens to wipe Eike from existence by leaving Margarette in the current time since she's ancestress of Eike and Eike can't exist without her being in her own time. [[spoiler: Except Hugo's plan failed due to Homunculus switching Margarette and Dana at birth. The Margarette from the 1500s is actually Dana from the modern era while the Dana that Eike thinks he knows is Margarette from the 1500s. Ergo, the real Margarette is Eike's ancestress. By putting keeping the real Dana in the 1500s, Eike's existence past, Eike would be guaranteed no matter continue to exist regardless of what Hugo did.happened to "Margarette".]]

* ShootTheShaggyDog: [[spoiler:Ending C. Oh, God, ''Ending C''.]]

to:

* ShootTheShaggyDog: [[spoiler:Ending C. Oh, God, ''Ending C''. Eike appreciates life and the simple things as he lies down in the middle of the street. He gets run over by a drunk driver and dies.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SplashOfColor: The colors change depending on the time period that Eike travels to; the 1980s have the colors muted, the 1900s is in black and white, and the 1500s is in sepia tone. Eike himself doesn't change colors, making him stand out a lot. [[spoiler: Hugo and Margarette are in sepia tone colors, but they gain normal colors when they time travel to the present.]]

** E: Eike brings Margarete in his time; she then convinces Hugo to drop his plans and return home. Dana stays in the present. [[spoiler:Eike doesn't know that Homunculus switched the two girls]].

* ParentalIncest: Ending E, where Eike ends up with [[spoiler:Dana, who is his own biological daughter from the medieval period.]] While neither of them are aware of this though, there is a vestigial remnant of familial feeling as [[spoiler:Dana]] gets a "cool dad" vibe from Eike as he seems (in her own words), [[StraightMan "with it all".]] However, Dana makes it clear she doesn't seem Eike as anything other than a father figure.

* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:Eike probably would have survived Ending C if he wasn't laying on the road. Homunculus even ''warned'' him beforehand that his life was in danger, and he ignored him.

** About the evilest things he does [[spoiler:involve killing the doctor or Hugo in two different endings, though Wagner betrayed him and Hugo was trying to kill him]]. And of course there's the little detail that '''''he owns Eike's soul'''''. The doctor sold his soul to Homunculus for eternal youth and became Eike. It's why he can continually be brought back.]]
