* AntiFrustrationFeatures: The game is rather merciful and most of times outright tells the player if they got themselves locked in an unwinnable situation.

** Chapter 16's puzzles is unique in the fact Sissel doesn't travel back in time to save people. However time flows "normally" when he's not in the ghost world and taking too long to solve the puzzles ''will'' end up fatally for those Sissel has to save.

* MusicalNod:
** Compare the "Four Minutes Before Death" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3C-FrmHn44&feature=related music]] with the "Logic ~ The Way To The Truth" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-a60ITJ2Ko track]] from ''Ace Attorney: Investigations''.
** There are several other themes in the game which are strongly reminiscent of ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' tracks as well. For example: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kwKogno3dk "TRAUMA"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMxGHvoK9XI Search ~ Core 2001]] from the first game; [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLAvtRewiN4 "CHASE"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wnp3d_jyGHk "The Fire Carves Scars"]] from ''Justice For All''. Also,[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HNuTV0GaUk "REINCARNATION"]], which in places, sounds suspiciously like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gm_ESQ8UTqM Maya's Theme]].



* MythologyGag: The game [[WordOfGod supposedly]] takes place in the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' universe, and seems to contain several references to that series.
** Kamila's dog is named Missile. This is the same name as the police dog in case 1-4. ([[TributeToFido Both are references to Shu Takumi's own Pomeranian, also named Missile.]])
** When seen from a distance, the bespectacled 'green detective' vaguely resembles Winston Payne, and the black-haired 'blue detective' resembles Phoenix Wright. Fittingly, they don't get along.
*** Blue Detective even briefly has an animation that looks like it might be similar to Phoenix's courtroom standard animation of his shoulders-slumped, sweaty and glum-faced.
** In the sequence where Lynne flashes back to Cabanela and Jowd's friendly competition, Jowd makes his point by striking an '''"OBJECTION!"''' pose.
*** He isn't the only character to pull one of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Om2Qu8acZ68#t=4m20s these]]...
** Jowd's green trenchcoat and red tie are reminiscent of Detective Gumshoe. His pink painting smock also resembles Larry's "artist" attire from the third ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' game. And while the prison uniform he wears has the standard stripes, the colors match the one worn by [[VideoGame/FinalFight Cody]] in his ''StreetFighter'' appearances.
*** The same blue-and-white stripes are used in ''Investigations 2''.

** The Chicken Kitchen uniforms resemble the uniforms Maya and Mia wear in 3-2.
** The helmet hanging on the bookshelf in the Super's office belongs to a [[VideoGame/MegaMan mettaur]], this being a Creator/{{Capcom}} game.
** The phrase "dancingly descended" pops up in ''Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations'', but Phoenix notes that the person neither danced nor descended from anywhere. Now we have Inspector Cabanela, who dances everywhere, and the Blue Detective (who resembles Phoenix) dancing down a flight of stairs in an attempt to copy Cabanela.



** The helmet hanging on the bookshelf in the Super's office belongs to a [[VideoGame/MegaMan mettaur]], this being a Creator/{{Capcom}} game.
** The Minister says something similar to Dracula's speech in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight''.
** Ray has to be a reference to {{Creator/Pixar}}'s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdtHSyfcSDs very first short film]].
** Bailey's dance [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist HAS BEEN PASSED DOWN IN HIS FAMILY FOR GENERATIONS]]!!

* NeverSayDie[=/=]NobodyCanDie: {{Averted|Trope}}, obviously. However, when Sissel [[spoiler:crushes each of the blue-skinned assassins under massive objects]], he uses euphemisms rather than acknowledge their deaths. There may be room for doubt with the second one, but the first one is cartoonishly flattened; there's no way he could have survived. So he's either [[NeverSayDie sidestepping a delicate issue]], or else our hero truly [[NobodyCanDie doesn't kill them]], despite "Mino" killing the "Guardian of the Park" in much the same way later on.

** [[spoiler:The epilogue shows what happens to everyone in the new timeline, even the most minor of characters... except Jeego and Tengo. Some people theorize they died anyway. The fake medical examiner is also unaccounted for.]]

* AmbiguousGender: While he spends the entirety of the game presenting as and being referred to as male, there's some fandom debate as to [[spoiler:Sissel]]'s actual sex. [[spoiler:This is partially due to his GenderBlenderName and the fact that he was named after Yomiel's female fiancee. Since Sissel didn't even know he was a cat, it's possible he also forgot that he was female, since during her first ghost manifestation Lynne also thought she was a male, specifically Cabanela, until she realized he was quite clearly not dead. For added ambiguity in the Japanese version of the game Sissel uses the [[JapanesePronouns gender-neutral first person pronoun "watashi" when referring to himself, whereas Yomiel uses the masculine "ore".]]]]

Added DiffLines:

* DisasterDominoes: The climax of the game turns into one of these. [[spoiler: The heroes attempt to save Yomiel's past self from being killed by the Temsik fragment by putting a giant Mino statue in the path in order to divert its course. It works, but the new trajectory makes the fragment pierce through Jowd's ankle instead, which causes him to accidentally fire his gun at Yomiel. Missile swaps the bullet out at the last minute, but the momentum pushes Yomiel into the pole that's barely holding up the Mino statue, impaling him. He somehow still lives, but the force causes the Mino statue to begin falling on child!Lynne. Since can't get there in time due to his ankle, and the ghosts are unwilling to let child!Lynne live with the memory that she died, it takes future!Yomiel possessing his unconscious body in order to rescue Lynne (at the cost of being crushed under the giant statue himself, albeit somehow still alive).]]
