* WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue: After the credits roll and the game is loaded up again, a year has passed and Vanilla can talk to several of the main/supporting characters as you search for Connie.
** [[spoiler:Marjoram will be working at his family's food store, Fennel is still practicing his music, Rosemary's sickness has been cured, and Basil becomes a heartbroken hermit living under a bridge.]]
** Many of the sidequests also have their own versions of this if you're willing to seek out the characters involved in them. For example, giving the blueprints to Hayabusa Carpet Mill and choosing to industrialize the carpet mill will cause the workers to lose their jobs and make them scatter across the world doing new ones.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: When you first reach Nefroburg, Connie will try to guide you to her house to meet her mother, Rosemary. If you choose to run off into the rest of the city and do an activity that advances the time to night (eg. battling at the arena, playing billiards, etc.), you'll find a cutscene with Connie at the bridge just past her house. She'll be upset that you ignored her, though much like every other option in the game, this has no effect on the main storyline.

* AlwaysCheckBehindTheChair: It's easy to miss a few treasures hidden in objects within houses. Most of them are books that you can find in bookshelves. One of said books is hidden in a bed that otherwise looks like nothing is under it.
