* AmplifiedAnimalAptitude?: Justified: In the ghost world animals can perfectly communicate with humans since human and animal souls are no different to each other, and since there's no language barrier in the world of the dead.[[note]]Souls communicate by directly beaming and interpreting their abstract thoughts.[[/note]] The only "barriers" between humans and animals is the latter's lack of understanding of more human concepts. For example: Missile, [[MisterMuffykins a small Pomeranian]], is perfectly able to communicate with [[TheHero Sissel]] in the ghost world, all while maintaining his ordinary dog behavior like [[CuteButCacophonic loudness]], [[ThePollyanna upbeat oblivious attitude]], and [[UndyingLoyalty fierce loyalty to his owner]].

* ArcWords: "And it's almost dawn". This is Sissel remembering that he will disappear from existence at sunrise.

** Although most technology seems to be modern (wireless headphones and plasma [=TVs=]) and a young woman (who must be around 18-years-old) is allowed on the detective force (suggesting modern social mores), everyone uses rotary telephones that still use the old station-extension phone number style. ''[[SchizoTech Wireless]]'' rotary phones, in some cases. Which makes for some major SchizoTech with the blue people, who have robotic arms, pimped-out information consoles, and [[spoiler:remote-controlled robot manservants]]. Maybe this is an alternate universe where cell phones were never invented.\\\
Note that ''Ghost Trick'' shares a universe with ''Franchise/AceAttorney'',[[note]]But not necessarily the same ''country''.[[/note]] which has cell phones aplenty.

** The Guardian of the Park receives one [[spoiler:from a falling football]]. This is a particularly [[TVTropesDrinkingGame egregio]]-- er, [[SubvertedTrope extreme]] example, as going by the [[TimeTravel time said tap occurs]], he was left unconscious for ''five hours''.

* SchroedingersCat: We find that [[spoiler:Sissel ends up as a ''literal'' one]] in the epilogue. [[spoiler: Being killed by a Temsik meteor fragment puts the victim in a state between life and death, where they aren't quite either. At the end of the game Sissel alters time so that he gets hit by the meteor.]] In the epilogue Kamila says that after all these years, he hasn't aged a day, and a Ghost World perspective shows that he still has ghost powers.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:As Missile-Prime also points out at the end of the game: the ability to travel through phone-lines doesn't seem like much among the ghost-tricks... but it's dead-useful. Especially if you're trying to keep up with someone. It's a power he lacks and you use extensively throughout the game.]]

* WhodunnitToMe: Sissel's motivation is not only to find his killer, but to find out who he is in the first place. He ends up discovering [[MinorCrimeRevealsMajorPlot a far more sinister, greater plot going on]].

* WhodunnitToMe: Sissel's original motivation is not only to find his killer, but to find out who he is in the first place. He ends up discovering [[MinorCrimeRevealsMajorPlot a far more sinister, greater plot going on]].In the end, the killer turns out to be [[spoiler:Lynne, because when Yomiel controlled her to shoot him, she [[HeroicWillpower resisted]] enough to miss the first shot, accidentally hitting the bag that contained Sissel]].

* TrickedOutTime: At one point, you have to save someone from an explosion while making it look like they were caught in it. And then right after, you save someone shot by a gun [[spoiler: by replacing the bullet with a felt hat in mid-flight]] without the shooter knowing the difference. However, this has nothing to do with fooling time and everything to do with fooling the criminal, making this FakingTheDead.
