* WriteWhatYouKnow: In case ''VideoGame/{{Downfall}}'' didn't make this clear, Remigiusz Michalski, the maker of both games, is ''really'' well familiar with the world of mental disorders. He's also a nurse (kinda like Susan), and said he had known a person who had suffered from severe depression. There are moments in this game when Susan stands on a bridge and recites very depressing poems in prose - Michalski said that these are the poems that one of his acquaintances (female) has written.

* GuideDangIt: Unless the player has inhuman intuition, it is impossible to prevent Susan's breakdown in Chapter 3 without already knowing what to do, either from a walkthrough, a previous playthrough, or SaveScumming, [[spoiler: and consequently it is impossible to get the GoldenEnding on a raw first pass.]] Part of the problem is the game's limitations. For instance, [[spoiler:there's no way to check the milk in the fridge for freshness before pouring it into Susan's coffee. If there were, players would be tipped off not to use it. The only way to know it's spoiled is to have Susan use it first. In a similar way, the player learned from the sequence before to look at all objects. looking at everything in Susans apartement will cause her to break down easier since she gets confronted with bad memories, bills and the likes. The player needs to know in advance what objects are save to look at.]]

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: If the player has the Flat 5 key and has Mitzi pick the lock in [[spoiler:Joe Davis's]] flat, Mitzi will complain that she is unable to pick the lock and suggest to look for the key. Susan will reply that the key will be impossible to find lying around... then calls herself an idiot as she realises that she already has the key to the flat.

** Susan also makes use of this trope when she gets a dose of medicine in the hospital and transports into some sort of alternative dimension version of the hospital. So, maybe, the third Parasite isn't a HumanoidAbomination, [[{{WMG}} s/he is just constantly high on something]].
