Flandre's actual in-game theme doesn't have any of that. Sounds like you heard a remix.
* LastNoteNightmare: Flandre's theme, "U.N. Owen Was Her?", is a high-energy techno track that goes through several progressively more intense movements before ending suddenly with, of all things, a disturbing piano crash. Even creepier since Flandre's [[EvilLaugh laugh]][[LaughingMad ter]] can be heard towards the end of the song.

Adding this after I read through some materials. Also the page is starting to lag. Perhaps it is time to split it into smaller pages.
* ChekhovsGun[=/=]{{Foreshadowing}}: ''Perfect Memento in Strict Sense'' was released in 2006 before the game ''Mountain of Faith''. With that in mind, look through some of the articles and realize just how much of ''Perfect Memento'' became used in future games.

What exactly however is currently unknown.

Moving to Trivia.
* CreepyCemetary: Muenzuka, the location of the final stage of ''Phantasmagoria of Flower View'', and resting place of humans who died without any living family, as well as humans who came from the Outside World and met their ends at the hands of youkai. It's also covered in poisonous spider lily flowers and watched over by youkai cherry trees, the latter inducing sadness in whoever watches them. Save for Rinnosuke and Nazrin, who search the place for treasures due to the fact that it's one of the weakest spots of the Hakurei Barrier because of its intersections with the Outside World and Netherworld, it remains mostly deserted because of its dangers to both humans and youkai. The Road of Reconsideration that reads to it, on the other hand, is infested with human-eating youkai waiting to prey on the hapless Outsiders that get brought there.

* CutAndPasteTranslation: There is at least one instance wherein the English translators just made stuff up, namely the "only a stage 2 boss".

** Nitori - Loch Ness Monster: Summons ol' Nessie and blasts the enemy with its BreathWeapon. Heavily implied to be mechanical, though... and given it's [[GadgeteerGenius Nitori]], this ''is'' something she'd do. [[spoiler: Though in her Story Mode ending, she ends up attracting the real one and turning it into a tourist attraction.]] [[labelnote:The Legend]]The Loch Ness Monster is possibly one of the oldest folk tales of all, depicting a (usually large) sea monster inhabiting the lake of Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. All that is known about it are confined to photos, all implied to be hoaxes.[[/labelnote]]

** Mokou - Spontaneous Human Combustion: Mokou lights herself up like the 4th of July and explodes in a ''powerful'' blast before [[{{Immortality}} reviving]]. Considering her power over fire, she may well be a literal example of the legend. [[labelnote:The Legend]]Spontaneous combustion is what occurs when something that is self-heating eventually exceeds operation temperature and explodes. There have been recorded cases of this happening even to humans, but none have been witnessed, hence how it became a legend.[[/labelnote]]

** It's fairly easy to get to the end by arcade shmup standards, as it wasn't designed to take your money. Doesn't stop it from being frustrating for some players, though. Especially on higher difficulties, getting a good ending is quite a feat. With that said, although the games are ''hard'', they are also ''fair''; most patterns are generally good with being about learning how to avoid them rather than just tossing cheap shots at you, so every death is your own fault.

Doesn't stop it from being frustrating when you're going for some players, that elusive one-credit clear, though. Especially on higher difficulties, getting a good ending is quite a feat.

* BulletHell: The ''Touhou'' games are a well known example of the genre, quite possibly even moreso than {{Cave}}'s shooters, at least outside of Japan. Mind you, Cave shooters are commercial, while ''Touhou'' is {{doujinshi}}.

* TheMerch: A good amount, considering it's a doujin series. It includes, but is not limited to: doujinshi, costumes, mousepads, jewelry, plushes, and high-quality figures, including Figmas.
