* OneDegreeOfSeparation: Nearly everyone that Sissel encounters during the night are in some way related to the mystery of his death, even if they seem minor at first. [[spoiler: Lynne's next door neighbors are the Justice Minister's wife and daughter, who are living apart from him because of his refusal to revoke Joad's execution. The "Guardian of the Park" was witness to the Temsik Meteorite. The junkyard superintendent used to be a police coroner who discovered that Yomiel's "shell" had regenerative properties, which led him to investigate the Temsik Meteorite. The other prisoners of Yomiel's prison were possessed by Yomiel to prove his Ghost Tricks. The doctor who looked at Yomiel's body was a double agent who was hired to bring back Yomiel's "shell." And finally, the cat in Yomiel's bag was actually Sissel all along and Ray turns out to be Missile from an AlternateTimeline where Sissel didn't help and everyone died.]]

* TogetherInDeath: Yomiel's fiancee tries to invoke this trope by killing herself after Yomiel dies. This is one of the largest causes for Yomiel's StartOfDarkness.

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: [[spoiler:Near-Sighted Jeego mentions Temsik to Lynne's face in her first scene, but she's too freaked out to remember that detail.]] If they had, it would have saved everyone about six hours of legwork.

* IdentityAmnesia: The main character "wakes up" as a ghost, having forgotten his entire past. He learns his name (Sissel) pretty quickly [[spoiler:but learns by the game's end that the image he had of himself was totally wrong. The "corpse" he saw when he woke up wasn't his own, and he was, in fact, the recently-shot pet cat of that man.]]

* FightingFromTheInside: You can see this happen with [[spoiler: Lynne and the justice minister]] when [[spoiler: they are controlled by Yomiel.]]

* FightingFromTheInside: You can see this happen with [[spoiler: Lynne and the justice minister]] when [[spoiler: they are controlled by Yomiel.]]]] In fact, the former example directly results in [[spoiler:Sissel dying and receiving his powers, as Lynne manages to resist Yomiel's control and fires a bullet that seemingly misses Yomiel but actually hits his bag, which holds Sissel]].

* TheDogWasTheMastermind: [[spoiler:Well, more like the dog was the TricksterMentor, but close enough.]] Also, there's the [[spoiler: black cat]] in the first chapter, which is later shown to have moved the protagonists body. [[spoiler: It turns out the black cat was the protagonists ''actual'' body, and was possessed by the BigBad at the time.]]

** Sometime later, the protagonist sees a video where [[spoiler: Lynne shoots him]], causing him to believe he was murdered [[spoiler: by Lynne]]. As the game progresses, [[spoiler: we learn that there's a guy who was controlling Lynne's actions, that Sissel wasn't actually the guy Lynne shot in the video, and the guy who got shot didn't even die anyway!]] Then at the very end we learn that [[spoiler: Sissel was indeed shot in that same incident shown on the tape. Though it was an accident.]]

[[spoiler:Lynne (5 times), Yomiel, Cabanela, Jowd (2 times), Pigeon man, Guardian of the Park, Missile, Detective Rindge and Justice Minister. The cat in question is Sissel, who technically ends up in a state between life and death.]]
