* NoSocialSkills: Rosa, especially in the first game. She refuses to approach Nashanti while she's playing her flute in public, and her dialogue choices throughout often end up as a choice between "mean", "passive-aggressive", or "awkward/tell an awkward joke."



* SociallyAwkwardHero: Rosa.

* SociallyAwkwardHero: Rosa. Helping ghosts move on to the afterlife? Easy. Interacting with the living? Not so much. Especially in the first game. She refuses to approach Nashanti while she's playing her flute in public, and her dialogue choices throughout often end up as a choice between "mean", "passive-aggressive", or "awkward/tell an awkward joke."

* FriendOnTheForce: In ''Unbound'' Rosa meets police detective Sam Durkin. He intentionally refuses to ask what she does exactly, but her ability to solve mysterious problems (even if he never really learns what was happening) convinces him to hire her as an unofficial consultant and he provides her with some off-the-record assistance at times.

Added DiffLines:

* DaylightHorror: Discussed in Legacy's commentary. Because the ghosts don't look quite as impressive during the day, Dave Gilbert decided to have every future game take place at night (or in overcast conditions).

Added DiffLines:

* FilmNoir: The series has definite strokes of this: the investigation-based gameplay, jazzy score, Lauren's smoking, and Joey's outfit that makes him resemble a detective.
